Are You Money Blind?

I shared with you in a past blog how Thomas Edison once asked a young apprentice of his what he wanted most in life in which the young man replied, “I want to be wealthy like you”.  After sometime Thomas Edison came back to the young apprentice with a pair of glasses that he removed the lens and replaced them with Silver dollars.  He had the young man put on the glasses and asked him, “What do you see?”  In which he replied, “I can’t see anything”.  Mr. Edison told him, “That’s your problem, money is right in front of your eyes and you cannot even see it”. artofbusinessipod

At age 93 J.C. Penny although very wealthy and successful would still go down to his office and put in a full days work.  At that age he was once asked how his eye sight was. He replied, “My eye sight is failing, but my vision has never been stronger!”  I do not know about you, but that inspires the heck out of me, and gives me the strength to climb any mountain, swim any ocean and continue on to all my dreams.

One of the most frequent but sad replies I get from people when I share with them how they can achieve their financial dreams is, “That sounds so good, but I just can’t see myself making that kind of money”.   Money Blindness is a curse you need to be healed from.  When you suffer from Money Blindness your lack, debt, limitation and despair become crystal clear and that is all you see.

When people suffer from Money Blindness they can see a thousand things wrong with any opportunity and will not be able to see one thing right about it.  When you wake up in the morning and you look at your financial condition, or your business circumstances, or your bank account what do you see?  Even in the event if you are upside down, and in financial challenging times, is that what you see?  If you can get healed of Money Blindness you would see those conditions yelling at you, “Get off your Ass you Big Dummy and change your marketing plan, business plan, get a mentor, get a new business plan and change this situation, you got the power to do so!”

Here are 3 Dynamic Principals To Cure Your Money Blindness, Business and Money Problems:

  1. The more complicated life becomes, the more simplistic your customer needs to be served.  Fast food restaurants know that most people drive up exhausted from life and work, their eyes balls red as fire and brain to tired to think, so all the customer has to do is say, Give me a number three.  No need to waste time and energy telling the voice box every item you want. 
  1. Frustration Factor:  How hard is it for prospects to navigate on your website? It is riddled with pass codes; create an account, type in all your information before I sell you something?  Do not frustrate your customers and prospects. 
  1. If you are not a Marketing Expert it does you no good being a Business Expert, Leadership Expert, Health Expert, or any other kind of Expert for that matter.  The world is filled with the most talented, skillful, professionals that have the worlds greatest product that are broke simply because they never took the time to become…”Marketing Experts”.

The Mindset of a Coast Guard

Did you see the movie Coast Guard with Kevin Costner?  I loved that movie, and the one thing that has stuck in my mind was their mantra “We have to go in (water) but we don’t have to come back”.

When it comes to prospecting today, you have to be relentless, ruthless and unstoppable.  Today business is like a mad ragging sea, sinking business ships by the thousands everyday.  The economy is like the movie “The Perfect Storm”.  With this kind of aggressive and violent business environment your job as a “Prospector” is not trying to find customers so that you can survive by selling them stuff, your role like a Coast Guard is to save customers with your answers and solutions to their problems.

Your ideal customer, the one who is ready to purchase what you have to offer is already out there, in the matrix of the business environment and you dear reader as Coast Guard prospector has to jump in and save them.

Are business and the economy rough and hard?  Does a bear go do-do in the woods?  Everyday you are going to be tempted not to prospect, you will be distracted, things will come up, you will bombarded with no, No, HELL NO! From prospects you are simply attempting to help.  Everything and every element around you and within you will do everything in its nature to keep you from prospecting, marketing and selling, better known as saving the ones lost in the sea of business.

People laugh when they see me wearing my bright red or bright orange shirt that has “Search and Rescue” on the front and back.  Listen, you have to get your mind in the right frame to be a ruthless, relentless Coast Guard marketing and prospecting machine to find (save) your ideal customer.  Here is a tip that will help you double and triple your income, “Business, Prospecting and Marketing Is Not A Game” 

It is the most serious and important type of work you could possibly engage in.  And here is another secret tip to double and triple your income, “Only The Fittest, Strongest and Best Equipped Professional Succeeds in this New Economy”. 

Can you imagine a Coast Guard who is overweight, unfit, ill equipped, untrained and fearful jumping into a raging sea to save people?  Yet this is exactly the type of dynamics that are happening in the world of business everyday which causes people to meet bitter disappointment.  However, it gets worse, because these same people sit at the end of their rope and say with heads in hand and tears in their eyes…”This damn economy done me in”.   

Ok, this is for all you 4 percent winners out there who are ready to double and triple your income this year and refuse to meet Charlie Tuna at the bottom of the Sea.  It is time for Money Boot Camp.  Here are the 4 things you must do right now, today, not tomorrow or when you think you can do this, your future income and business is serious stuff, do these 4 things pronto.People Prospecting

  3. Divorce Excuses.  30 years ago my Millionaire Mentors yanked my shorts over my head and barked, “You can make money or make excuses but not simultaneously”.   When we produced our first movie a number of years ago I almost had to wake up our CPA with smelling salts when I told him the budget because he knew that although the budget was more than our liquid cash on hand, that was no excuse to stop us. You know what, it did not stop us, and in fact we have done 3 more very successful movies after that first one!
  4. Be A Business Coast Guard.  What stops a Coast Guard from jumping in that raging Sea to save people? Nothing!  No icy freezing water, no fear of death, no storm.  His mission statement is “We have to go in but we don’t have to come back”.  If you are going to jump into the raging waters of business and succeed to double and triple your income you are going to have to…”Get Your Ass in the Water Right Now”!
