Excerpt from 17 Highly-Guarded Strategies to CloseEvery Sale Guaranteed Plus How to Combat the Fear of Closing
You have to combat the fear of closing to overcome that obstacle. You can’t even move forward in the sales process until you have conquered this fear. The underlying fear of closing is the fear of success. Your mind is saying, “What if I actually create a relationship with the person, open up a relationship, develop a bond with the person, and they trust me to do business? All of a sudden, I’ve got the right to close the sale and earn that 6% commission.” Let’s say 6% of $1,000,000 is $60,000.00. You’ve never earned that before so your internal belief structure is full of fear. Not only is that a lot of money, but the responsibility that goes along with it and the dedication to the client is terrifying for most people.
You must self-develop and stretch yourself. I have seen so many people that have a great product, have a great service, and they have an absolute right to earn huge income, but they have a fear of closing. They simply don’t believe in themselves enough to take a step of faith and just do it. The only way to combat that underlying fear of closing that is holding you back is to get totally immersed in self-development. I’ve never met a person that invests time in personal development material that is completely shell-shocked at the thought of closing. Why? Because their belief in their own abilities and their business vehicle outweighs that fear.
Don’t even think about giving me the excuse that you don’t have time or the money to invest in success and motivation. It’s literally minutes and pennies a day! Isn’t your success worth that? If you don’t know where to start, then become a member of our Lifestyle Freedom Club where you have the ability to immerse yourself in personal development 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We bombard you with incredible information that allows you to build a solid foundation of self-belief. You see, I love to close. Why? Because I know that I am opening long-term relationships with people that want to succeed. Print this out, circle this, and put it in front of you: “I love to close because I am opening up a long-term relationship.”
Like I said before…When one door closes, another one opens. Isn’t it amazing to know that every time you close a sale, you open a door of opportunity not only for that customer but also yourself? You must internalize that opportunity and look forward to closing the sale so that you can open those life-changing doors.
I am under the assumption that you are marketing an ethical and moral product. When you have an ethical and moral product that will change someone’s life, then you have a right to earn huge income through that product. You notice that I did not say “make money”. Everyone that strives to just make money is usually broke. If you desire to earn a huge income so that you can change your life and the lives of others, then success is inevitable.
If you have a fear of closing, then you have to develop within you the ability to overcome that fear by developing yourself. Without your belief structure, you can learn every how-to in the world of sales and still not succeed. I have outsold numerous so-called experts and coaches in the speaking world and online. It wasn’t because I had any type of advantage that they didn’t have. Let me explain something to you. Focus on this. I outsold them because I out-believed them.
I absolutely believe in my products and services, which are self-development, motivation, success strategies, internet lead generation, and marketing strategies. I absolutely believe that my products and services will change people’s lives, empower them, and equip them to fulfill their goals and dreams in life. It is my foundational belief in my products and services that empowers me to overcome the fear of closing and outsell nearly everyone else in the industry.
