How to succeed on the phone - Preparing for a good call session.

15 replies
Top Advice:

Take Tony Robbins advice, and mimmick people verbatim, who are doing it successfully.... there are a ton of them around here.

Go in mentally prepared to insure Victory:

In Fact Listen to the entire Tony Robbins personal power seminar straight through... The day before your first call session. Go for a drive and just listen to it. Then listen to some Zig Ziglar for about 20 minutes in the morning, before you sit down on the phone.

If you dont have access to the cds, you can find these two on youtube. Zig Ziglar/Tony Robbins

- Fill your mind so full of prosperous mind substance that it has no choice but to spill over into your reality. Literally just saturate the mind with positive mind food for a whole day... If you have to make a choice between the two motivational speaker, choose "Zig". If it were me I would take twenty four hours and listen to a set by each of them over and over 2 or 3 times apiece consecutively...

It would take all of 8 hours to brainwash yourself to have a successful call session. If it were me, and it HAS been, I would do it INTENTIONALLY. Because I know the results.

All this mental exercise may seem like alot of trouble, but thats the difference between a success and a failure... The success does what is too much trouble for the failure.

Nothin wrong with a good ole fashioned brainwashing. Some people seriously need it.

Whether its boxing or whatever... you cant knock out Mike Tyson without training and conditioning. Pro's TRAIN. Period.

In fact, here is some Zig, but you will need more brainwashing than this. Make a day of it.

      Yer the man bro... Teach me! If I can make money emailing people Im all about it!

      @ Dennis and MK... Im telling telling you, I mean this with all my heart because as a former telemarketing champion for years straight, every month it took something Different to make me tick... on many of those months it was one of these teachings... You cannot go wrong if you take like 24 hours and just SATURATE your mind with awesome stuff.

      I have tested Tony Robbins theories, even down to mimicking a successful person VERBATIM, and it worked. I have invited others to mimmick my own successes and it works for them too.

      Quit watching the freekin real world (unless it empowers you) , and listen to some positive teaching.

      You know what? It has worked for 100 years for a reason, thats because ITS TRUE! YOU NEED IT! PEOPLE WHO GET IT SUCCEED MORE THAN THOSE WHO DONT!

      The results are in.

      Brain Freekin WASH yourself... go to sleep every night listening to an empowering CD... Why not?

      Its either

      A: Brain wash myself intentionally with the things I WANT to be programmed with.

      or B: Let the world brainwash me with whatever the wind blows my way.

      You got ta stand for sumpthin or you'll fall for anything.

        I hate to give it away although it is not all that spectacular!
        I basically go to SuperPages.com and go to a random category that seems good enough and start going down the list. I will see what their website looks like, then will email them saying that their site looks outdated and if they wanted to see a free redesign. I just sent out 100 emails a few days ago and got 3 responses that I am working on snagging as clients.

        I don't want to give too much detail but it simple. Just offer redesigns to people who already have websites.

    Great tips and I agree. My good friend Guru Singh (Tony actually introduced us) says, "You should get brainwashed? We wash everything else! You should give the brain a good scrubbing ever now and then too!" Love it!

    You guys should check out Guru Singh. Guru Singh and Tony Robbins talk a few times a month and are in each others inner circle.

    Here is his blog: Guru Singh Blog

    And he has hours of free content here: Guru Singh's Podcast - Download free podcast episodes by Guru Singh on iTunes.

    Seriously great stuff. I went through all of Tony events (14 of them) from 2006-2008 and own everything he came out with. I traveled with him and the his Platinum Partners. Guru Singh is by far the best I have ever learned from.

    This reminds me of something I heard recently along the lines of that's why books on positive thinking are so popular, because negative thinking comes so naturally to us humans we don't need a book on that :-)

      This is true and why Yogis teach to do yoga and meditation every morning to clear the mind from most of the noise the brain causes.

      I teach my clients that the brain is like your web browser. Usually its like a bad version of internet explorer viewing pirate and porn sites taking in tons of hidden spyware and viruses in scripts..lol

      When you do the morning yoga and meditation it helps get you back to "being" and not "doing". It is now the latest version of firefox or chrome and just viewing 1 page like the warrior forum.

      Go to The Blessing Page and do the light meditation to test it out. Also got a meditation room with shakra and triangular and mediation.

      That site has been blessed by over 200+ deeksha givers around the world.

      Also Tony is the one that introduced me to the Deeksha.

      Try it out ;-)

        This reminds me of one of my mothers friends growing up who was an arm wrestler. He was the nicest guy, you couldn't imagine him practically ripping people's arms off in a tournament. Anyhow, before a match he would work himself into a frenzy. He wouldn't share the material he used exactly, but it was like he turned into a different person right before his matches. He would get really intense, eyes wide open, walk up and beat every guy he was up against. After the match was over, he was back to his smiley happy self. He would get in 'the zone'.

        Whatever it takes to get you motivated and into 'the zone', I say go with it, get on the phones and close those deals.

    That is so very true. I have noticed that when it really comes down to what works and what does not; it is going to be the attitude that the attitude is yes and that the result will be yes. This is very simple, but often hard to describe in words. When you are geared towards a negative result - every part of your mind that wants to plan against it, creates more reasons why "no" is the most expected result.

    Although this answer can be taken in the wrong way; everyone I have seen that succeeded above expectations always assumed yes was the response they would get. Some of them literally just plowed through objections and no's and consistently pushed for the "How can I get this done for you since you want it so badly."

    So, yes it is common to think of "Ifs Ands or Butts" all day when it comes to a call scenario, it is just simply not what really works. Any negative response is really nothing more than a pause until the yes. Someone hangs up, does not want to move forward etc; those are all just blank spots that mean nothing. It's the tiny and microscopic moment in your mind when you do not wait for a yes out of the world, and you move forward - because you KNOW in your heart that everything is win/win and you are doing a great thing for you client, it all just seems to work out - even if you have to make a bunch of "blank" calls to get there.

    The NO's have nothing to do with my attitude, since all of them are logically only "maybe later". Keeping up an attitude is far more valuable than figuring out how to rebut a "no".
