Selling yourself as a product is a vital life skill. As there are thousands of ways to get onboard the get rich train. Some people do it by squeezing all the knowledge into their heads like a phyton. That's stupid. As I can't think of anything more painful!
I have a low tolerance for pain, so naturally, I try to get it off others for absolutely free. And that just means you have to learn the art of selling yourself.
It stands the test of reason. If no one even finds you interesting to want to spend time with you. Then how the hell are you going to get them to share with you what's really important in their lives? The way I see it. Everyone has an angle that they have been nursing to break free from the litany of everyday. They have too, that's the last refuge of the workers manifesto - the condition of hope,
It matters very little what they do - they could be really boring people who lead really boring lifes, but every single one of them without a single exception probably has a tunnel, a escape plan or a secret garden that they just know may hold the promise of redemption if only they had the guts to pull it off - and all they need is someone to come along who they can trust to tell the whole plan too.
That's what I really mean by getting into the grove - it's two parts creating the right mood for collaboration and one part pure charisma.
The inside groove that is. Once you are there and everything is lined up. You will find that the system works for you in more ways than you could have possibly imagined.
While your competitors are working hard and sweating bullets. You are working smart and cutting all the right moves. You just cruise on the inside lane. There is no resistance. No Jack in the boxes. No surprises. Its all there layed out in one straight line like a highway.
Bc you bothered to get into the inside groove and got to know someone who really liked you - she just thinks you are the one - she knows what she is doing may be wrong. But that is what skirting the inside groove is all about. It has always been about the idea of one shot, one kill - dying on the drop of the hat - and though she is afraid, she cannot resist the thrill -so she follows very much in the way a woman follows a man obediently. At first hesistantly, but gradually her resistance gives way to commitment to beat the system.
You know that this is just an opportunity and though you made her feel really important, happy and worthy - you just know that you're just selling yourself to her so that you can find that mythical line to make more $.
At the end of the day, its always abt the money.
That is it. The long and short of the art of selling yourself. Its worked for me all my life. And I hope it works for you as well.
Just made $50K in one day. By just flipping real estate like hot pizza. Wouldn't have been able to pull it off without Carolyn. The eager beaver estate agent who just said, this is it - this is the one.
The inside groove that is. But even if I tell you all these things how the hell are you going to put me behind bars - you see. You have a big problem.
You dont know how to get into the inside groove. No you don't. So there will always be certain things that will remain mysteries to you till the day you die. Till the day you die lah!
