Begin By Beginning

Feb 9, 2008
I've said it before, and I'll say it many times: Persuasion is first and foremost the study of human nature. And despite the things that are understandable about human nature, we are still very intricate and complex creatures. If all things were equal, there would still be some people who excel and others who get stuck.

Are you in a holding pattern? Maybe you've felt unable to escape a complacent state in terms of your sales numbers or some other aspect of your life. The first step is to begin the process of change.

We're inundated from all fronts. There are things we want for ourselves, things we want to change, but it can feel daunting to face big goals. My advice is the age old cliche of one day at a time. When we begin at the beginning and make small advances each day, before you know it, you can add up the small amounts and they become a significant change.

To quote David Viscott, "If you could get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed." Starting with your reading of this article, you're beginning the process of change. You can choose to allow this to be a trigger for you to move from complacency to a new way to exist.

A change I've made recently was to move from a broad teaching of persuasion to lessons focused on persuading the affluent. Why the affluent? Well, that's where the money is.

And still, in Max Persuasion, I focus on the fundamentals of human nature. We learn persuasion practicing on ourselves. If we can't persuade ourselves, it's highly improbable that we'll be able to persuade the affluent. We are our own guinea pigs.

Some of the ways we persuade ourselves include: mapping out our personal, business and public universes in order to learn to manifest what we want, investigating our relationships with intention to set ourselves up to get predictable results of success every single time we put our minds to it. We work on clearing out our other than conscious minds by eliminating distractions and resentments and other clutter that holds us back. We also learn how to communicate with our other than conscious to aid us in everything we do. And we use an unbelievably revolutionary technique to tap out emotional resistance in ourselves which I credit for being one of the top three triggers in the shedding of 140 pounds of extra weight I had been carrying for years.

Are you ready for change?
