Welcome to episode 40 of the Yay for Business Podcast. In today’s episode, I am sharing a mindset lesson that I teach inside Yay for 100K, the Dunning Kruger Effect. The Dunning Kruger Effect is something you may experience as you up-level your business, so being aware of it means you can work it to your advantage. However, if you are unaware of it, it can be detrimental to your business.
So that’s why every month, we do a Dunning Kruger check-in with our clients to see where they are in this experience and what results come up.
For this episode, we created a graphic of the Dunning Kruger Effect. Click here to get your copy of the graphic! I recommend printing it out or setting it as a screensaver so you can check in with yourself once in a while to see where you are at.
Besides the graphic, we also have a FREE TRAINING for you. In this training, I will go over the Dunning Kruger Effect in more detail and share how you can transition from services to courses. You can find the free training HERE or on my website (click on the button that says, “Free Training!” in the navigation bar above). All you need to do is fill in your name and email address, and you will get instant access to the training.
In today’s episode, we’re specifically covering the stages of the Dunning Kruger Effect:
- Unconscious incompetence (being unaware of how much you don’t know)
- Conscious incompetence (becoming aware of how much you don’t know
- Conscious competence (becoming aware of the solution, but it takes a lot of effort)
- Unconscious competence (you can’t remember what it was like NOT to know how to do the thing anymore)
I hope that this mindset lesson was helpful for you and that you can see how your mind plays tricks on you as you grow your business.
Remember: Discomfort is a good thing. It means you’re growing!
