Have you heard Ray Higdon talk about this? He says, “Don’t be addicted to the outcome!”
It is good advice for many different situations in life.
But what does that mean?
The long and the short of it is: Don’t ask a question or give an invitation, desperately hoping for only one answer. If you are looking for a yes, and you get a no, don’t be devastated. Or at least don’t let it show.
Don’t do it!
Well, for many reasons, but primarily because the desperation will show through and for most people, this is a turn off.
It could actually cause you to get a response that is opposite the one you are looking for.
He’s not saying, “don’t invite”. It is fine to invite and if you are starting your own business, you will need to invite. But don’t beg or plead or become distraught or nasty if you are turned down.
Just be cool.
“Oh, you’re not interested? That’s cool. This isn’t for everyone. If your circumstances change, you know where to find me.”
Then go about your business. And keep asking and inviting. You will eventually get a yes!
(Just don’t do your happy dance in front of the person who gave you the yes. Lol.)
Just keep inviting, asking, and working on your business. Eventually someone will say yes. And your business will begin to grow.
That’s when people will start watching you. Really. They’re probably watching now. Which is fine.
So keep asking. Keep inviting. Keep posting. Keep giving away tips and tricks. Keep helping others grow their business.
Never stop learning and never stop growing.
Remember in high school when you were told to “play hard to get”? Well, it’s the same kind of thing.
The girl or guy who is aloof and seemingly disinterested, is the one who gets chased. Right?
So, go on. Work you business and be cool. Don’t be addicted to the outcome. Or at least don’t look it!
I would love your comments.
