You Won't Believe These Beliefs!

By Abundance, Self Persuasion, Social Persuasion, Universal Law 2 Comments

Hi,

Recently I began looking for quotes that show the power of belief.

What I found surprised me.

While I prefer to focus on the positive, these show just how powerful beliefs can be. (I’ll be posting more of these on Twitter so be sure you are following me there. And of course, I’ll follow you back. Just click here to add me.)

Here’s a few of what I found.

“Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.” (Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society, 1895)

“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” (Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943)

“There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home.” (Ken Olsen, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977)

“The telephone has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” (Western Union internal memo, 1876)

“Airplanes are interesting toys but of no military value.” (Marshal Ferdinand Foch, French commander of Allied forces during the closing months of World War I, 1918)

From a persuasion standpoint, you can clearly see the problem you’d have if you needed persuade any of these people. Their beliefs would clearly need to be addressed. But it goes beyond merely addressing them. This effects their entire world view. And if others had bought into their positions, where would we be today?

But the bigger lesson here is the realization that beliefs (including values) really do run our lives. They shape what we see and what we don’t see. They enable us to be rich and successful or poor and limited.

The great thing is that WE HAVE CHOICE.

Examine what you believe about why you are where you are today. Examine why you do or do not have the money you want. And examine why you are creating the life of your dreams or are manifesting the excuses as to why you don’t have it. It’s your choice – choose well.

Now, tell me your thoughts. I’d love to hear from you. And while you’re at it, share this post on Twitter, if you would.

Who Peed On YOUR Face?

Sure enough. Tony Robbins said that to a woman crying her eyes out when we worked with her on stage.

And guess what happened.

She stopped crying.

In fact, she just stopped.

Finally she stammered, “What do you mean?”

And Tony told her she was crying so hard it looked like someone peed on her face.

She was silent and than began to laugh.

Tony was able to move her to a place where he could work on her problem.

A lot of the people you meet as a persuader are stuck in their own minds.

And we as persuaders need to be able to ask them – “Who Peed On Their Face”.

However, I suspect if you aren’t on stage like Tony AND you don’t have Tony’s leverage, that might not be the wisest strategy.

Instead, let me show you how I persuade today using Kenrick’s Persuasion Interrupts.

What Made Alexander the Great – The Greatest Persuader

By Advanced Persuasion, Persuasion Continuums, Universal Law No Comments

In a famous Greek legend, the Gordian knot was the name given to an intricate knot used by Gordius to secure his oxcart.

Gordius, who was a poor peasant, arrived with his wife in a public square of Phrygia in an oxcart.

An oracle had informed the populace that their future king would come riding in a wagon.

Seeing Gordius, the people made him king.

In gratitude, Gordius dedicated his oxcart to Zeus, tying it up with a peculiar knot.

An oracle foretold that he who untied the knot would rule all of Asia.

Many people tried to undo the knot but all to no avail. The penalty for failing to untie the knot was death.

In 333 B.C. Alexander the Great had invaded Asia Minor and arrived in the central mountains at the town of Gordium;

He was 23 years old. Alexander was undefeated, but without a decisive victory either.

He was in need of an omen to prove to his troops and his enemies that the outcome of his mission – to conquer the known world – was possible.

In Gordium, by the Temple of the Zeus Basilica, was the ox cart, which had been put there by the King of Phrygia over 100 years before.

The staves of the cart were tied together in a complex knot with the ends tucked away inside.

Having arrived at Gordium it was inconceivable that the young, impetuous Alexander would not attempt to tackle the legendary “Gordian Knot”.

Alexander climbed the hill and approached the cart as a crowd of curious Macedonians and Phrygians gathered around.

They watched intently as Alexander struggled with the knot and became frustrated.

Alexander, stepping back, called out, “What does it matter how I loose it?” With that, he drew his sword, and in one powerful stroke severed the knot. Alexander the Great went on to conquer most of Asia before his death.

This story isn’t about Alexander the Great.

It’s about YOU.

It’s about cutting through all of the nonsense and making more sales.

It’s about connecting with your customers in a new way.

You’ve never experienced the power of my all new program.
