PostSubject: Stupid things we say   Thu Oct 18, 2007 1:38 pm

Q. Why don't prospects see what we see?
A. Because of what we say and what we do.

For example, when we say 'financial freedom,' -
our prospects think an insurance salesman is
approaching.

When we say 'time freedom' - our prospects know
we're telling a lie because nobody has any free
time anymore.

When we say 'residual income' - our prospects know
that residual means 'leftover stuff that nobody
wants.'

Our prospects will see the same vision that we see
-- if we communicate that vision clearly. So let's
not tell our prospects:

'If you work hard, you can retire in five years.'

Let's describe it this way instead:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

'My friend is going to college for five years to
become a professional. At the end of those five
years, he graduates. Then he will start his
career by looking for a job.

'Another friend is building his network marketing
business for five years. At the end of those five
years, instead of starting a career, he will
retire.'

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Notice how the second example helps our prospects
to see what we see?

Remember, it's what we say and what we do that
makes the difference.

I go with the motto..... "choose your words wisely!" It is so true that certain words can make or brake a potential sale. Thanks for giving some great examples! Great post for all to look at!!
