“No” Is When The Fun Begins When You “Set Your Entire Life Up Like A Contest”


Top producing salesmen understand that negotiations don’t even BEGIN until the customer says “no” for the first time.

That’s when you need CONFIDENCE and, most importantly, SKILLS. Everything else is just an easy “transaction.” Anyone can do that. That’s nothing special.

When it comes to selling yourself and your ideas, how skilled are you?

Do you “fold like a house of cards” when someone gives you resistance? Do you immediately label them “haters”? Do you just run to the people who agree with you?

Anyone can be confident when everyone agrees with them. That’s nothing special.

You must have SKILLS to lead someone who disagrees with you to that point-of-view you truly believe in. “One grain of sand will eventually tip the scale.”

That’s POWER.


Don’t fold like a house of cards.

You don’t do that when it comes to your body.

Work on your skills.

It’s just like building muscle. You won’t get stronger and more skilled in the gym by avoiding your workouts, right?

You’re always selling yourself and your ideas.

Set your entire life up like a contest (and win big there too!).

You’re just one influence-and-persuasion-skills-filled “contest prep season” away from the life you really want.
