Hey. Welcome back to another episode of Sell Without Selling. I am your host, Stacey O’Byrne and I believe that learning the art and the science of how to sell without selling is the only way to achieve high six and seven figure success.
I am really excited to get into today’s episode. Really quick, if you are a business owner, entrepreneur, or sales professional, and you haven’t hit the level of success that you wanted or needed, or if you’re stuck and needing a pivot in your business, in your success – or maybe you just want more, and you understand the importance of having a coach to help identify the blind spots, increase accountability, and help with success strategies to take you, your business, your income, and your success to the next level – if this sounds like something for you, then head over to pivotpointadvantage.com/IWantSuccess. There’s a quick application there that will lead to a personal phone call with me to see if we’re a great fit for each other. Alright let’s do this.
You know success is a habit. So much so that there’s science behind it to back it. Reality is this, how we do somethings is how we do everything. How we do the little things is how we do the big things. If you really observe yourself, if you really pay attention to your behaviors, to your habits, you can predict what you will and will not do. And that goes the same with others, too. See we do a lot of events. As a training company, as a speaker, as a coach, I work with a lot of business owners, a lot of entrepreneurs, and a lot of sales professionals. And one thing I notice with events, both with speaking engagements, trainings, and boot camps, are the number of no-show’s. I did a boot camp several months ago where we had over 100 people enrolled, and 30% of them no-showed. Now this is a paid event, a paid event where 30% of the people just said, “You know what? Whatever it is I wanted, whatever it is I committed to, whatever promise I made to myself – I’ve decided it’s no longer a priority. I am not going to follow through.”
Now please understand I know life happens. I know things get in the way. I know that there are things that are unpreventable. I also know that there’s a high probability that that didn’t fall into 30% of the people. Maybe a few of them. Maybe 1, maybe 3, maybe 5 of the people had a significant life event get in the way. However, have you ever realized or ever noticed with people that they make commitments to themselves, they make decisions, they say they’re going to do things and then they don’t follow through. They have excuses, they have reasons. Something happened. Something’s always going to happen. It really has to do with what’s a priority to us?
