So I've tried lots of "systems" and let's face it...they really don't seem to work. Not for me anyway.
So I'm really trying the old-fashioned, tried and true cold-calling...EGADS!
My biggest problem doesn't really seem to be rejection (or handling it) as much as the intense fear of actually dialing.
It is so surreal to me to just start talking to a stranger like I know them...
I learned a great bunch of things to say from a guy named Ari Galper (Unlocking The Game dude) and I haven't been yelled at, hung up on or cussed out once!
As awesome as that is, I am still having SO MUCH TROUBLE picking up the phone. I get psyched up, I get ready and I know this will change my life...then I dial and it goes downhill.
I don't know what my question is, other than...how did you successful guys get over the jitters and just do it. Force yourself to just keep doing like a robot and hope for the best?
Play a game where the more you get in your own head the more you win?
I know I have to take action, and I will...but man is it ever the scariest thing I think I've ever had to do.
Any tips, or little mantra's you guys you use to help you pick up that phone and take action would be truly appreciated.
Thanks a lot!
