Overcoming objections is one of the most important things you’ll learn in life. If you want anything worth keeping, or pursuing, you better believe that something or many things are going to pop up, and try to ruin your moment. Going from one dream to the next is no easy task. Just when you think you have it all under control, here comes the bullshit.
The list can be made much longer but that’s not what this is about. This is about learning to bob and weave through traffic. This is about keeping your composure when everything is not going the way you thought it would. Your reaction to what happens when nobody cares is just as important, if not more important than what you do when everybody is in your corner. There is a saying along the lines of “you are who you really are when nobody is looking”. Not exactly how it goes but it means the difference between realized dreams, and not being able to handle defeat in the most crucial of times. Getting past the pain, frustration, and failure is the key to this universe when dealing with prosperity.
I can’t tell you exactly how to overcome objections because everybody is different. What I can tell you is, losing enthusiasm to keep going in the right direction is exactly how you lose every time.
People are not going to support you until you support yourself. Even than, nobody is going to do the work for you. If you have a dream, it’s yours. It belongs to you. You are the one responsible making it become a reality. Not anybody else.
Learn to take responsibility for what’s yours. Stop focusing so much on other people’s lives and progress. It distracts you from becoming the very best you can be. Look yourself in the mirror and let it be known out loud, “I will succeed, I will believe, and become everything I want to be”. After you declare it, get out into the world and obtain it. Don’t worry about what others would think. Pretend you are the only one who speaks your language and put in work.
Do it for the glory, and love, not the money and materials.
If you’ve never been hurt, if you’ve never felt pain, if you’ve never fought for something until you literally had NOTHING left, if you’ve never cried in order to make it through to see tomorrow, if you’ve never fell down and got right back to your feet, if you’ve never done these things before….
You have never been in love with something or someone. You’ve never given yourself the courage to dream limitlessly. You’ve never put your life on the line for something you believe in.
Purposeful persistence is needed to be successful. It’s not only needed, it’s an absolute necessity. The best way to illustrate it? If someone is deaf in one ear and you speak into their bad ear, they won’t hear you. You holler again and again and again. Still nothing. The cliff-hanger so to speak? You don’t know they are deaf. What if you had some life saving information to tell them? They can’t hear you, so do you just walk away and say “I’M DONE!”
No! You persist with a purpose! You figure out the best language of communication through hand signs, written signs, facial expressions or easy to read lip service. But if you give up that person dies, and it’s your fault because you decided not to persists.
Push harder. Try all kinds of different things. Jump farther, travel more frequently, learn more new skills. Whatever it takes. Just make sure to lead with purposeful persistence, because you never know who’s life is on the line.
It could be your own life for all you know.
No matter what you do, make sure your mind is sharp. Think about what you really want. Think about how you’re going to get it. Imagine yourself having it. Thinking things into existence is very real. Speaking things into existence is very real as well.
When in doubt focus your mind on the things you want to happen to you in life. The biggest guarantee we have is the power of our minds and excellent work ethic. Everything else is much more of a gamble. If you learn to control, and direct your daily thoughts, you will learn how to control and direct your life.
We all want to take control of our own lives. The easiest way is getting a hold on your brain. I don’t know the scientific madness behind how it actually works but I have used the power of my own mind to manifest many things that I simply focused on relentlessly.
Believe in yourself and you can do the same thing I’m doing.
I came across an article this morning about marketing. The title of the article indicated that this very successful and popular recording artists didn’t use any marketing to build his buzz for his new album. I can’t stand these type of articles because the people who write them don’t really know what marketing is.
They made it seem like he literally wrote his first song last year, and that carried his popularity all of the way into a number one album for the very first try. No. Marketing does not work that way. They also referenced 2 mega hits he was a part of last year apparently were the only two records that helped him get to having a number one song in the country. Nope still not close.
They failed to mention the 20 years of marketing experience he has. They forgot to mention all of those years that he built as name for himself. They forgot to mention all of the other top 10 records he was a part of since the early 90′s that helped him to score the number one song in the country 20 years later.
They forgot to mention that his marketing campaign started over 20 years ago when he decided to become a professional musician. Marketing is not just something that happens right then and there. It is something that starts the moment you begin to speak, and walk. The difference is the levels of consistency and how far people purposely try to go with the marketing.
Any time you do something that is noticed by other people in any way, is a form of marketing.
