Just Google “Billionaire failure”… you will find resource after resource detailing how billionaires failed before succeeding. Now, here’s the important part… when they failed, they tried again, but in a very specific way. They tried to do the EXACT same thing but incorporating what they learned from their previous mistakes into their next attempt.
As humans, when we fail, we tend to want to say, “Oh I’m no good at this. I should try something completely different.”
No! The key is to try the same thing, but to not make the exact same mistake again! You might make a different mistake, and then learn from that one and try again. Then, keep doing this until you finally succeed!
That is exactly how I went from making $50,000 a year, to well over $1 million a year. I came up with a script for my first meeting with clients… and a script for my closing meetings with clients. Then, I started to record all my meetings. I listened to them with the express purpose of looking for something in the meeting that did not work.
When I found it… I came up with a different approach to try on my next meeting. If it worked… TERRIFIC! I kept it in the script. If it didn’t work… I kept revising it until I found something that did work.
Fast-forward 20 years… not only did the script that was created by doing this process work for me… it has worked (and continues top) for hundreds of advisors who have used that exact same script to triple and quadruple their production. Some have even seen 20-fold increases in their incomes.
This is all because of a script was devised by fixing one failure after another, until there were no more failures to fix.
Are you learning from your failures?
