Steve Aoki was on Tom Bilyeu’s Podcast & he said…

“The problem with social media is people are looking at other people’s results & say, ‘I want what they have…’”

🔥”…but you must start with what’s right in front of you.”

Aoki didn’t start out playing to sold out crowds, he started playing to small rooms…then theaters…& eventually sold out arenas.

🔥The reason why you get discouraged is because you’re playing to someone else’s results when you need to play to your audience…

& sometimes that’s an audience of 1…

YOU.

If you’re starting a podcast, business, sales position, blog, or just trying to get in shape…

🔥Play to your room.

& keep playing to your room because the results aren’t always seen…

Sometimes the results are in grit, tenacity, persistence, & a capacity to handle what you’ve got…

And as you handle now…more is on the way.

Keep playing to your room- what starts off as a mirror, turns into a room turns into a theater…& eventually into an arena of results.

I was talking to a recent high school graduate who wants to go into the military…

but didn’t realize he had to prepare to take a test to get in…

With no more classes, freedom, & earning an hourly wage, he said he hadn’t 🔥gotten around to studying for it yet…

“Do you want to stay in this town & work to earn just enough money to eat Ramen noodles, drive a hooptie, and barely pay rent for the rest of your life?”

🔥Then you have to fight for your options…

Right now- whether you’re a recent graduate or are 30,40,50,60,70 years old…

You may be bankrupt, fired, or at a dead end today…

🔥Now may be all you have, but that’s not all there is…

Options aren’t given…they’re earned & you gotta fight for your options.

While others play…while the rest accept life as is…

You work to gain options…this is a solo decision…& if you want more, bigger, & better, then you have to work to elevate yourself in such away that you can afford to walk away, say No…or even say YES…

Because you have options 😉

Are you procrastinating picking up the phone and calling the customer because you may just get rejected (again)?

🔥Action cures all…

Afraid to ask for the sale because you don’t want to come across pushy?

🔥Action cures all…

Should I or shouldn’t I go to the gym…have the difficult conversation…or ask her out?

🔥Action cures all.

Today’s thought is simple: If you’re scared, frightened, or just plain lazy…

Take action because…

🔥Action cures all…

Thanks for being a part of The Sales 💪ife.

What are you presenting today?

You may not be on a stage, but your world is your stage & every day you’re presenting…

The question is what are you presenting?

🔥Are you presenting how bad things are for you right now…how bad your month is going…how ill you are…how the administration has messed things up & the world is chaotically upside down?

What are you presenting?

🔥Because whatever you’re presenting is what you’re producing .

& every time you present, you give it fresh legs & new fire.

Stop presenting what you don’t want to produce.

I get that you have problems & unfairness…

Join the crowd…we’re all battling through something…

It may not be the same as yours but it damn sure rhymes.

Just produce…you got big shoulders…you can handle more than you think & go harder than you believe…

Focus less on presenting & more on producing.

& we don’t need to hear about it…we’ll see it in the effort & eventual results 💪

(Hat tip to Darren J Hardy book The Compound Effect for the inspiration)

NBA legend Kobe Bryant said everything he did-EVERYTHING, was to become a better basketball player.

“Because I had that mindset, 🔥the world became my library..& because I knew what I wanted the world helped make that happen.”

So many people drift in life…

They don’t know what they want so no wonder they’re barely getting by.

🔥When you know what you’re looking for & what you want, the world will help make that happen.

It’s not by accident…it’s by drive.

In #sales, confidence is everything…

But what about when you lose your confidence?

You put your confidence in the wrong thing…

You put your confidence in the customer or a specific outcome & when they bought elsewhere you got pissed off…which leads to less effort…which leads to eventually quitting.

“Buyers are liars…” right?

Nope…buyers aren’t liars…

They’re just not telling you everything…

Trust but verify…

Business owners hire independent auditors to verify what the business’ accountant is saying…

The IRS trusts your returns…

…but they will verify.

You lose your confidence- thinking “they’re all liars” because you trusted they were:

…6 months out

…wanted to shop around

…couldn’t get approved

Only to discover they bought somewhere else.

Trust…but verify.

Your body language & tone tell your customers you trust what they’re saying…

But your questions verify if it’s a stall or real objection.

It’s not that you don’t trust them…you just need to verify.

Lab Time

Before recording “The Moment” podcast, Brian Koppleman met NBA player JJ Reddick for a shoot around…

Koppleman remarked how chill Reddick was before they stepped foot on the court, but once he laced up, he became intense…

“That’s because the court is my lab,” Reddick admitted.

_______________

When you show up to sell, show, lift, or present, do people notice a difference in you?

They should, because your “court” is your Lab…it’s not a time to slack off and chill…

It’s time to go to work…today sets the table for your future.

It’s lab time.
