Watch this very powerful video and it will help you answer those questions. We’ve all heard it many times before. Wwat would we do if money didn’t matter? Just about every success book and personal development book asks us these questions.
What Do We Want?
Even though we’ve read this question several times, heard it while listening to an audio program or even asked it of ourselves; we seldom really think about it. We seldom give it the deep thought and attention it deserves.
When you watch this video be sure you are in a very quiet place. Free of all distractions. While watching this video you will be immediately captivated by the imagery, the subtle background music and the voice of the narrator.
Afterwards, I encourage you to watch it again … Maybe even watch it two or three more times.
Think about the ideas and questions that are being asked. Take time to reflect on your thoughts.
When you do this it’s almost as though you’re taking a timeout.
It’s like you’re looking at your life from a different perspective. Almost like watching your own movie.
- How are you showing up?
- Where are you going?
- Are you on the right path?
Once you’ve asked yourself those questions, ask yourself The Biggest Question of all…
Definitely check out this book “The Dream” by Gurbaksh Chahal!
His book is a must-read for a Internet Entrepreneurs who are looking for inspiration as well as important lessons from a young Internet Millionaire.
When “G” was only 16 years old he dropped out of school and started a successful performance based advertising network. He shares his experiences growing his company Click Agents and how he eventually sold it only 2 years later for $40 Million! After selling Click Agents to Valueclick, “G” eventually moves on to his next venture BlueLithium, a behavioral re-targeting company which he also sold for $300 million cash to Yahoo! at age 25.
You’ll really enjoy his business lessons, challenges he encountered along the way, his Indian Culture and the financial struggles his family faced while was growing up.
One of the biggest lessons you’ll learn is not getting too caught up in the details when starting out and worrying about having all your ducks in a row!
When you read this book you’re going to be blown away at how Gurbaksh was able to start this amazing company and generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue in the first few months!
You’ve seen the crowds lined up outside of stores waiting to be the first ones to rush in and buy super discounted merchandise. It looks like total chaos! It looks like a total adrenaline rush! and It’s also fascinating to observe.
On the outside looking in, it doesn’t make any sense? Who would go out into the cold, fight the crowds, look for parking, wait in line, and stay up late to buy something on sale?
What is so interesting to me is trying to find out the motivation behind this annual event?
A few things that come to mind that would motivate someone to join in on this frenzy are the following:
1. The Reward – Huge savings on enticing products.
2. Urgency – If you’re not 1st your last. The early bird gets the worm!
3. Scarcity – Limited quantities – while supplies last!
4. Social Proof – Everyone else is going, there’s no way you can miss out!
5. Emotion – The anticipation of all the excitement running into the story and grabbing a great deal!
6. Competition – The feeling of competing against everyone else trying to the prize first.
7. Necessity – This is the best bang for the buck for those with a limited budget.
When you stop to think about it, it’s as though the deck is stacked against and that there is nothing you can do to resist the overwhelming temptation!
Even though you may be aware of all the above, you may still find it impossible to resist. The reason being is that its human nature to be compelled to all of those emotional triggers. We’ve all hear dthe phrase “we make decisions based on emotion and back it up with logic.” We justify our emotional purchase by rationalizing it with logic and tell ourselves a story for why we need something.
When you are putting together your sales presentation think about incorporating those principles!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Safe Black Friday!
PS. May Your Thanksgiving be a Profitable one too!
