How I Conquered a Lifelong Fear

Orlando, Florida. Disney World. Space Mountain. My lifelong nemesis.

When I was 7 years old, I rode it for the first time with my dad. But it wasn't the fun ride I was expecting. A seatbelt mishap caused me to nearly fall from the car we were in, traumatizing me to no end. 

My mother described me as green when I got off ride, and since that time I've not only been afraid of roller coasters in general, but terrified of Space Mountain.

Living in South Florida has offered me MANY opportunities to return to Disney World and the home of Space Mountain... the Magic Kingdom. In high school, college, grad school, and especially in the years after I got married and had 2 kids of my own.

But every time, and I mean EVERY TIME, I avoided going on Space Mountain. I always came up with some ridiculous excuse that I'm sure my friends weren't buying. And for the first 7 or 8 years of their life, my kids were either too small or had no interest in such a ride....

...until today.


(*this is me about to board Space Mountain for the first time in over 30 years!)

Today everything changed. Today I was forced to face my fear. An irrational fear, yes, but, in my mind, a very real fear.

Watch the short video below to see why I was forced to face my fear and what happened...

 

I did it!

 


(*this is me walking out of Space Mountain for the first time in over 30 years)

There's really no feeling like facing, and overcoming, fear. Any fear, really. But the bigger it is, and the longer you've been carrying it around, the more amazing it feels to conquer it. And today was a big one.

That's true in personal life as well as business. Whatever you've been fearing, whatever you've been avoiding....

...do it. Do it at the first opportunity you get!

There's nothing worse than living with regret, and there's nothing better than doing something even though you were afraid of it!

You will grow as both a person and a leader, and you will have more confidence, more posture and, ultimately, more success.

Remember, successful people are willing to do what unsuccessful people are not!

How to Sell More Stuff, Sponsor More People, and Make More Money

No matter what you're promoting or what you're selling, it all comes down to the presentation. And if you really want to sell more, sponsor more and make more money, you need to present the valuable information you have to share in the right order!

If you format your "pitch" poorly, you won't get far. You might not even make it all the way through. People will often assume they already know where you're going or what you're talking about before you even get there... especially if you give them too much information too soon.

But if you follow the simple strategy I lay out in the video below, your sales will go up, you'll sponsor more people into your opportunity, and you'll make more money. Check it out...

Makes sense, right? It's really pretty simple, and if you pay attention to marketing you'll see and hear it. No one likes commercials or ads, but look and listen to how they're done... especially by the bigger companies. They get it. They know what works. And now you do too ;)

Here it is again, broken down for both opportunity and product...

Why - this can be interpreted one of two ways
- why you do what you do; your motivation; your reason for getting up in the morning and working on your business
OR
- why something would benefit your customer; features and benefits ALWAYS come first; watch commercials, listen/read ads

How - also can have more than one meaning
- how it is you do what you do; methods, know-how, strategies, steps; and what sets you apart from others
OR
- how a particular product will benefit your customers; what will it do for them, how will it make their life easier/better, etc

What - can also be explained two different ways
- what it is you do; most people know that; you need to be able to explain it clearly; it's what your business does
OR
- what is the product that you've been describing; what it is, where they can find it and buy it

Follow this strategy and you'll be sure to sell more stuff, sponsor more people, and make more money!

What is the ONE Move You can Make to Rocket Your Business Forward?

It all revolves around one word. Just one, and once you've made the move, once you've used the word, the rest is downhill.

That doesn't mean it won't require work, and that doesn't mean it's going to come easy...

...it means, once you've made the move, success is inevitable.

Watch the video below, and you'll understand exactly what I mean.

Are you ready to make the necessary move? If you are, you need to start feeding your brain with as much positive information as possible.

Remember, what we focus on expands! So why focus on the negative? Why focus on self-doubt and limiting beliefs?

No thank you. Instead, I listen to positive, value-filled audios every day. And I focus on the positive message being delivered. You can check out what I listen to by clicking here.
