Recognizing why You're sales are down and what You need to do

April 8, 2016

The worst mistake you can do is to panic, thinking that this sale slump will never come to an end. You start second guessing yourself, wondering what it is your not doing. The smartest thing you can do is take a deep breath, relax your mind. At this current time, the last thing your brain needs is additional pressure from you panicking.

Sometimes you need to back away from all the pressure, what I use to do was go to the gym and have a good hard workout, this cleared my mind. If you are not into working out then, do something entirely different that you enjoy doing. Do a crossword puzzle, anything to get your thoughts away from your sales slump. The more you think about your depression with sales, the problem will only compound without any results.

There is also an old remedy that works for many people it is called de-stressing with healthy foods. Eating certain foods will help you with the stress level you're having currently. Here are some of the examples of healthy foods you can add to your diet.

Keep in mind nothing lasts forever, your sales slump will come to an end sooner than you think. Allow your brain to relax, listen to some meditational music to help your mind come to a complete state of relaxation. It's a proven fact when the brain is exposed to certain music beats it can relieve a lot of useless pressure from your mind. One that I use for me to relax my thoughts fully is the Evening Meditation. 

How to revamp your thinking with a killer sales attitude that will change your current slump and close more sales. Think about baseball; they have a coach for almost every situation, from a bench coach to a pitching coach a first base coach, third base coach along with all the other coaches that team employees. They correct small mistakes, which the player has no idea he is doing, his off his rhythm, they get him back on track.

What you need to do is review all of your latest sales you have made. Recall all the steps you took to make that sale; each transaction is different. Sit down, analyze each phase with each customer . this will allow you to see how you've made the sale and why you made the sale. It works like magic, you reinforcing positive vibes that change your thinking and gets you understanding some the mistakes you might have made with the clients you did not close. Just like the baseball player who had it pointed out to him by his coach.

Then get back on track with some sales training, listen to some Zig Ziggler's sales training, to keep you focused, read some good books on sales, how to close more sales. They are countless of books that will help you, achieve more sales. But you need to study them, not just read them like a novel. Big difference study the concepts that have been laid out for you.

If you apply these steps, you will drastically see results from the moment you meet your first client. You're better prepared; you have new found confidences in your abilities. You become an entirely different person. Hope these tips help you sell more than you ever did, but more importantly sales slump never last forever.

Understanding how to respond to unpleasant situations

March 31, 2016

Who we are and how we think generally will provide us on how we react to many different complicated situations with life. Whether it's on business or with your personal life, dictating unpleasant results on how you respond to any given situation.

The truth of the matter we spend most of our lives reacting, rather than taking our time and responding in a professional, polite manner. Our brains are so use to this type of acknowledgement with any given situation we are dealing with.  We do not take the necessary time to allow our mind to pause and think before answering to any personal remarks that are made towards you.

How many times have you found yourself in this type of environment, whether it's from a text, email or a face to face confrontation? We do not even take a deep breath; we fire back a text, email or reply to the person who you are talking to. I know I have been guilty on many, on necessary occasions. We all have been.

So how do we change our approach when facing confrontation? The first thing you should do is take a deep breath, allow your mind to calm down before you react to the irritating statement. Pause your thoughts, then think about what was said, or you read.  You might need to practices this several times until you feel comfortable with how you're starting to react now to the unpleasant words; that would usually trigger a reply without thinking.

When dealing face to face with a hostile disagreement, you should just look at the person and watch how they react. Sometimes they will calm down, providing time for you to analyze the statement that agitated you. Now you can calmly reply to the remark, with a the smartest, compassionate response possible. Then there are times, the most intelligent thing to do is walk away from the distressed situation. Some remarks are not worth a reply back.

By changing your words, you will create positive and productive results.

I have put together this slideshow to assist you on how to react with the correct choice of words. So the next time you find yourself confronted with a confusing situation, you will be much better prepared on how to handle any complicated disagreement, whether by text, phone, email or face to face. You will be in total control and utterly amazed with your performance.

How to Change unacceptable habits to positive habits

March 29, 2016

On the last article I wrote, it was all about how to avoid making costly mistakes well building your success. The biggest change we all need to address is our habits, some are acceptable, but most are just plain dreadful. How do we change our patterns, not sure there is a formula for this quadratic equation?

I like to use the puppy approach, if your dog dies, you replace it with a new dog, and learn to love it. It helps you with the casualty and loss of your dog that has been part of your family for years. This strategy when applied to any obsession you are having complications with, needs to be addressed with an active practice that allows you to grow with a favorable attitude.

When you replace an unacceptable pattern with a particular affirmative habit, it helps you forget that pattern ever existed, or provides tempory relief until you adjust to removing it totally from your daily routines. No different than when you have a break up with a loved one, most people try and found a replacement for their loss. They need that comfort zone, not easy, but it helps until you adjust to a suitable partner.

If we understand this practice correctly, each time we want to make an adjustment as in breaking away from a bad habit, you will need to replace it with a substance that will occupy your time during the horrible feelings you are having. Keeping your mind occupied is an essential element, I do agree easier said than consummated.

Here is a perfect example you want to stop drinking, how do you replace the drinking? You get home the first thing you do is crack open a bottle of beer, perhaps a glass of wine or whatever it is you enjoyed drinking. Instead of drinking, how about working out, going for a jog, walk, or just taking your bike for a ride. You need something to replace that awful habit during the time you would be drinking.

Instead of taking the same Avenue home, where you would stop and pick up your favorite beverage, take a different path, baby steps but so vital to this type of success. You will not stop at the same shop; you will see other things you have not seen before during your drive home.

Essential Elements for breaking bad habits

The first step you will need to establish is the pattern you want to remove from your daily routines. The mind has mysterious abilities when you write the problem you want to remove permanently. Write a short description of what your craving to change, along with the strategy you will use to eliminate this pattern. Share your emotions, feelings on why you need to modify this habit from your life, and how it will change your attitude. How it will improve your current situation to a more productive frame of mind.

You will need to understand what triggers these's unacceptable patterns.
Who are you with when these obstacles come into play?
Are you at a place where you're not comfortable or familiar with?
Do they occur at a particular time of day?

Increase Your results with this process, hidden secret used by a few!

This system you're about to learn is so powerful, you be able to feel a change almost immediately after one session of using it.

The more information you can gather about the habits you want to change when you're writing your plan for action will increase your overall results with the transformation.

What Creates Bad Habits?

Most of the time it has to do with boredom and stress, the primary reasons why we have unacceptable habits, such as drinking, smoking, laziness along with many other habits we have tried to eliminate from our lives. Sometimes the patterns are deeper issues, which will take us a considerable amount of time to understand the root of the problem. In some cases, we may need to seek professional therapy, never be ashamed of taking this route.

Understanding the core source of our unacceptable habits provides a solution that we can implement with satisfactory results. You do not need to be someone else; you need to visualize your success with breaking patterns that are holding you back from a much more peaceful, enjoyable lifestyle.

I hope this will help you get started with breaking any bad habit forever from your life. Remember it will take time, effort but if you dedicate your mind to this program, you will see results with your progress.

All the Best,

How to Avoid costly mistakes well building you're Success

March 22, 2016

Number one obstacle will always be the person who is pressing to achieve success; that would be you. You have no one to blame for your past failures; understanding this statement will provide a perspective on who you are. The reason I make this statement it is never our fault, we never take accountability with our personnel development. However, we never change our methods of approaching it with a confident frame of mind.

Understanding our miscalculations is like winning a lottery, we then have the ability to improve our vulnerabilities. We are all humans, we deal with many issues daily, too many distractions, we lose focus. How do we change all of this? Our inner desires want nothing more than to become successful with our life. We want our spouse, families also to feel proud of our achievements.

We have read countless books, listened to CDs, watch videos on personal development, spent larger amounts of money for us to change our habits. However, nothing works or provides the solutions we are seeking. The reason, we always give up. Most of us, not all are just not committed to changing any bad habits we have.

The deal destroyer is, not being able to concentrate on what you should be achieving each and every day. The most logical reason I can come up with, most people have no idea what they want in life, I was one of them also. You think you do, but reality then sets in and slaughters your dream. The primary reason was not as important as you thought it was.

Another logical reason we all suffer from is one of the most miss understood circumstances not many will every compromise or concede to it. The fear of failing with knowing our dream might not materialize again. Fear can also be the biggest motivator you will ever have. When you use it to motivate your desires. Creates raw energy that stimulates your thinking with your mindset.

The one that terminates our dreams the most is our comfort zone. When your mind starts to trick you, convince you that your life is not that crummy at all. Why do you have to change anything, you have everything you need at the moment. Having a dangerous mindset will provide you with the results you have achieved countless times, with your personal development.

How do you change your mindset to become laser focused on your goals, dreams, and desires you want to enjoy. Modify the people you associate your time with, is a good start. Start understanding that time is your most valuable commodity, one you will never get back. So use your time efficiently, organize your day with what has to be addressed and achieved today not tomorrow. 

My rule is, Yesterday is History.  
Today is a Mystery and Tomorrow is an Adventure.

You need to embrace all of your new challenges that present themselves like windows of opportunities. Understand that intelligence over time is being developed if you do not understand something do your homework on that topic. Google it, and study what you did not know at the time. You will find the answers. Learn from all of your past mistakes, and never repeat them again.

Keeping a daily journal is not a bad idea, during your private time writing your days activities, some positive, some negative. The reason is you can always go back and re-read it, and learn from what happened. Just the other night I re-read some of my thoughts from 1987. I said well I forgot about how happy I was on that day. I did it before I can achieve this mindset once again. See my point why a daily journal is not a bad idea. No one knows I do this, my private time, my thoughts, emotions as well as a little history of the past. However, now the cat is out of the bag.

How to Increasing You're Marketing Skills when writing Headlines

March 10, 2016
Marketing is an unpredictable environment, what worked yesterday may not work today; if we keep this in mind, we will adopt and implement current market trends in our niche industry.  Understanding our market is the most important aspect of becoming a very creative and innovator marketer.  We can write the most original articles, but if no one reads them, they are counterproductive and nowhere to be found in cyberspace.
Marketing is not only a skill but an “Art”; we need to multiply our audience, gain their attention and entice them to read further what we are offering. Once we have accomplished this step, we have an opportunity to make a first-class impression.  So let’s be fair the most import line on your ad, would be the headline of your article. What we all read first, the headline also know as the title of any article, book, etc. If it does not trigger our interest, more than as we click on the next item until we found one we like. Let’s review some ideas to writing real ingenious headlines for your ads, articles or eBooks.
-Telegraph the promise of a positive benefit.
-Emphasize the strongest benefits in conjunction with your niche market, as competent as possible.
-Outline two and sometimes three benefits on your title that will seduce readers.
-Stay away from fancy words; keep it simple and easy to understand.
-Review and make sure you have used proper spelling and grammar.
-The last one l like using is to make your headline stand alone.

-If you can create an attractive title, which stimulates curiosity, it's an absolute bonus.
                                     Excellent Tool for rating your headline
The Stand Alone Test:
What a stand alone tests means is how much of response have you gotten or will get. Here is an example of this trial, “Write for More Information’ would this draw attention from your audience if they like what they had read so far. Leaves your reader with a moment of curiosity, in most situations they will provide the information you have requested so they can have that information. You're trying to sell the sizzle, to induce them to click on your link. 
Writing creative headlines is an art and science all in itself, and well worth spending some time learning and mastering.  The best headlines written are the ones you find on tabloids, such as “The National Enquirer” (l would strongly recommend and suggest you studying these ads in the tabloids.)
They have some of the best Headlines that gain your immediate curiosity and for unknown reasons you have done what they wanted you to do. Buy their useless material! Here are some examples of some original and productive headlines those tabloids like to use. “AMAZING DIET SECRETS OF HOLLYWOOD ACTRESS THAT CAUSES OVERWEIGHT LOSS.”  
You can see how this will work for you, and again you bought their magazine their mission was successful. The headline caught your attention.
With a stronger comprehension of how important a "Headline" you should review and change your headline or title until it has some of the fundamental ideas l have listed for you. 

How effective is my Headline for this article, check the score, and what part of my Title links with the three areas of emotions. Just copy and paste the title into the search browser.

           3 Areas to concentrate when creating a Clever and Effective Headline
