A, B, C- Always Be Closing

A,B,C - Always Be Closing may appear as a phrase used in the "business world;" however, that is just the problem- people are not always practicing their "ABC's"...

Whether you are trying to sell a car, an idea, a song, or yourself at a bar on a Saturday night- you're always closing. It seems the problem here is that most people do not know the end result. In other words they don't know what to close on. What do you want to happen? After you answer that. Do not think about all the scenarios. Just make it happen, you'll adapt to all those scenarios much better if you simply stick to the plan- Always Be Closing on YOUR Goal.

To close or to sell an idea is a transaction. If you tell a joke and laughter is your goal, then your joke is the transaction. "Transaction" is defined as "an exchange or interaction between people." During a time of economic crisis if your seeking answers on how to get rich- start by smiling at someone and have them smile back- a "transaction." You have to practice selling at all times. If it's not an instinct that it will fail when pushed hard enough.

You can never have the attitude that "tomorrow you'll do it" because you won't. You can never have the attitude that you're not good enough- because that's bull shit. Everyone is good enough and if you have to pretend to be someone else, if you have to pretend to be Charlie Large then so be it. Like a 5 year-old who wants to get his/her way, they do whatever it takes. I suggest you all do the same. Practice your "ABC's".

Make Miracles Happen.
