What’s Your “Secret Excuse”?

May 11, 2015

It seems like everyone has mental blocks that keep them from succeeding.

And salespeople are ESPECIALLY notorious for this!

In fact, it seems that mindset has more to do with sales failure than cold calling, the economy, pricing, and all of the rest put together.

A few years back I began using the term “Secret Excuse” in my programs.

A Secret Excuse is, very simply, any excuse you make in your head that gives you a phony reason not to get out there and succeed.

Before I reveal the most common Secret Excuse for salespeople, here are the most common excuses people have for not getting off their butts and making something great of themselves:

– I wasn’t born into the right family
– I’m not “connected”
– I don’t have a college education
– “It can’t be done”
– Why hasn’t someone else done it already?
– I don’t have enough money
– I have a family to support

And so on and so on… until it make me want to puke.

The Most Common Sales “Secret Excuse”

Day after day after day, the same question comes into our help desk, on phone calls, and into my email and LinkedIn inboxes:

“Your program sounds great, but will it work for ME?”

We always have a good laugh at this question, since the entire purpose of offering the Never Cold Call Again system on a 30-day trial is so people can find out for themselves, with no risk, but I digress….

Here’s the reality:

Only YOU can make something work for YOU!

YOU have to try something new and get into action. After all, doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results is the very definition of insanity.

So, here it is – drum roll please – the most common sales Secret Excuse is:

“It won’t work for me!”


You only THINK something won’t work for you. And I’m not just talking about my system. Whether it’s putting yourself out there and doing free speaking to local chambers and service organizations to expose yourself, or learning how to network properly and start going to Meetup groups where business owners congregate, if you THINK it won’t work for you, you’re right!

Never forget Henry Ford’s famous quote: “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”

So do this right now: STOP making Secret Excuses about “it won’t work for me” and START putting new ideas, strategies, and techniques into action. And then you will finally get RESULTS!

And when you’re ready to do that, there’s no better place to start than my Never Cold Call Again system. It’s literally a blueprint for sales success. It explains in step-by-step detail, everything you need to know and to do to implement an autopilot lead-generation system that will flood you with more leads than you can handle, with hot prospects who are ready, willing, and able to buy right now.

And I already mentioned that you get to try it out on me for 30 days before deciding if you want to keep it and be billed then, or send it back and never pay me a dime, so there’s no excuse at all not to do it right now:

To your success!
