QUOTE FROM SELL OR BE SOLD:
Most people don’t get enough in life only because they never do enough in life! Production makes people feel good. It almost doesn’t matter what you’re producing just so long as you’re doing and producing something constructive. Decide to produce something and produce it in massive quantities and you will win in life. Production results in happiness. This is a basic truth in every religious, economic, and ethnic group on this planet. People feel better when they are producing, and the more production they generate, the better they will feel. Money may not make people happy, but production will… Anyone who tells you that you’re working too hard is not working hard enough. Unfortunately, such people have given up their hopes of having an extraordinary life. Such people are mediocre at best and have forgotten about the dreams they used to have.”
What’s your target this month?
Add 5… What if you hit it? What happens when you hit it? How much more money does this make you? What could you do with the extra money?
OK, let’s say it’s the 25th of the month and you’ve already hit the number. Got it? How does that feel? You’re going into the last days of the month and you’ve already hit your goal.
Feels pretty good right?
So, how did you do it? It’s the 25th of the month…
How many customers did you produce to hit your number? How many appointments did you produce? What % of those set appointments showed up? What % of those showed appointments closed? How many phone calls did you produce to set these appointments and how many demos did you produce? How many proposals did you produce? Are you happy or sad? Can you see what’s possible, what you can have? What will you do about it? Will you become the kind of person who takes massive action to produce the results needed to create your goals and dreams?
