Are you planting enough seeds?

One day. a guy decides that he wants to grow an apple tree in his backyard. So he walks into a garden store asking for the highest quality seeds so he can grow his tree. The store clerk gives him a bag with a bunch of seeds in it. The man tells the clerk that he doesn't need a bag. He just needs one or two of the best seeds.

The store clerk tells him that one or two of the best seeds are in the bag, but "we can't tell which one is which so you have to plant them all."

Life works exactly the same way. Many times we go out and reach for that dream or that special goal and we fall just short. That's because we didn't plant enough seeds.

In life:

1. The more people you meet (planting seeds), the more likely you will find someone interested in what you have to offer.
2. The more people you find interested in what you have to offer, the more appointments you make.
3. The more appointments you make, the more sales you make.

If you're not making enough sales, that's because:

1. You're not making enough appointments
2. If you're not making enough appointments, that's because you didn't find enough people interested in what you have to offer.
3. If you didn't find enough interested people, that's because you didn't meet enough people.

You didn't plant enough seeds.

You have to plant the seeds. You have to get out there.

In a club if a guy asks a girl to dance, and she says no, he has a choice: "Ask someone else or sit down?" If he keeps asking different ladies, someone is bound to say yes. But if he quits and sits down after asking one or two people, NO ONE WILL SAY YES.

But planting seeds, takes work. It takes guts to plant the necessary amount of seeds.

But not everyone is willing to do this; you need to get out of your comfort zone.

To get out of your comfort zone, YOU NEED A WHY.

When The Why Is Big Enough, The Facts Don't Count

Many times, we question our ability to reach our dreams and goals. When others question our ability as well, it just confirms and exarcerbates our doubts. I'm here to tell you that when your WHY is big enough, the facts don't count.

You may not have the talent, the ability, or the skills according to society. Just remember, that as long as there is AT LEAST ONE person in the world that still believes in you, you have a chance.

You are still in the game.

Even if the only person left in the world that still believes in you...IS YOU!!!

That's OK.

People want to follow people that are self-confident, that are excited about life. People will only buy products or services from such people. If you exude confidence, you will seem competent to others and others will want to deal with you only. If a consumer has to choose between two similar products or services and they can't decide which one to pick. They pick the product with the more successful salesperson.

You may not think you are doesn't matter, what's important is that others think you are.

Everyone wants to work with winners. Nobody wants to do business with a loser.

Dream big, set your goals and pay the price.
