Selling is a key to wealth

leave a comment »

Sales is one of the most important but dreaded skills you will have to develop if you want to become wealthy.  Sales are the way that all transactions take place. And I’m not just talking about financial transactions. In fact, sales are at the beginning of everything. Before you can receive money from someone you also have to sell them on the idea of what you are doing. That is generally thought of as the beginning… but there is even a series of steps that happens before that.

Before you can sell anyone on a transaction with you or even getting them to buy into your ideas there is one person that needs to be sold first. That person is you. You need to sell yourself every time you feel like staying longer in bed than you need to, every time you feel like you don’t want to get to work, or make those phone calls you know you should or whatever effort is required to stay grinding out your success.

It is not easy. And if you can’t sell yourself on going that little bit extra further you will never have great success convincing others that you are bringing a great opportunity to them. The energy you create in yourself is contagious. If your prospect senses that you are only partial involved and committed to what you are doing they will respond the same way.

So next time you are stalling or procrastinating something you know you should do – sell yourself on the idea and get started.

wealth Secrets that are often forgotten – 5

Financial freedom is not an experience. it’s an exact number.

Just received a really cool thank you card from one of my students who expressed that learning the principle of what financial freedom really looks like meant to her. I must admit that when I learned this concept, that everyone misunderstands, from one of my mentors it also changed my life. If you’ve been to one of my events where we’ve talked about this principle you get it too. Financial freedom to most people is an emotional experience. In other words: more time off, more time with family, travel, the ability to do what you want, not worry about bills, etc. These are all incorrect definitions. Instead Financial freedom is one exact number. It is specific and clear and as such is attainable and near. When we know specifics we can achieve it. Your financial freedom is the exact amount of money you need to satisfy your obligations every single money. And to be truly free this amount of money needs to arrive passively. Type Amen if you get it. #douglasvermeeren #1wealthcoach #moneyandabundanceshow

Thinking and Wealth – How you think can make you rich! Part 1

Thinking and wealth

By Douglas Vermeeren

 

As I have conducted my research on the super successful and super wealthy I have found many clues that  are fundamental in creating greater financial success. One that I will talk about in this post is simple but extremely profound. It comes down to appreciation. One of the major differences between those who are highly financially successful and those who are not comes down to appreciating their money.

 

No doubt there are some people there shaking their heads right now saying, ‘this is silly, we all appreciate money.”  But do we?

 

Let me explain what I mean by appreciation.  Most people think that appreciation simply means to have good feelings or gratitude towards a thing or situation. Maybe you appreciate something someone did for you or a gift someone gave you.

 

Appreciation is so much deeper than that, especially when it comes to looking at money. In fact, a great way to explain this might be to look at the opposite of appreciation – depreciation.  This is a word we heard more often when it comes to things in the financial realm.

 

Most people say they appreciate their money, but they most of the time making purchases that depreciate. Therefore we may safely assume that most people really don’t understand what it means to appreciate their money.

 

The dictionary defines appreciation as “understanding of the nature and quality of something.” Most people don’t truly understand the value of their money.  Consumer research groups suggest that the average american household spends more than 96% of their income on purchases that immediately depreciate. While it is understandable that some items such as food, clothing and shelter are necessities, the same research indicates that much of the income is currently spent on entertainment. These expenditures have no appreciation value.

 

If you want to see your wealth increase dramatically you need to begin keep a more careful eye on your depreciation spending.

 

I am not against enjoying life and having a great time. But to receive great financial returns a small shift is required. My personal research into the lives of the world’ most successful people demonstrates that by delaying immediate gratification and shifting the purchase mentality to appreciation great wealth can be created.

 

Purchases that appreciate, like investments, begin to place your money in a position where it works for you and grows by itself.

 

 

 

So the next time you are about to make purchases, even small ones, pause and consider the value of the purchase – Appreciative or depreciative. Set a goal to increase the amount of appreciative purchases you are making and you will find yourself moving towards greater financial freedom.
