Self reflect before shoving that glizzy in your mouth 🌭
With Memorial Day here we honor the people in the military who have lost their lives. But unfortunately, people just use it as another excuse to party 🎉 . The glizzy’s are out on the grill and you got those burgers firing up too.
Before we get on the grill, I want you to take the time out to think about these questions for your goals. Really think about your goals:
Today, I was going through a slump. It’s okay. Even personal development gurus and coaches such as myself, still experience times when they aren’t feeling like themselves. Today was this day. I felt like I wasn’t achieving enough 😭. There are certain expectations that I set on myself that are so high, God can read them. And when I don’t accomplish these high expectations, I feel like the worst person in the world.
But I had to sit back and talk about it. I realized I’m doing great. Financially, I’m not where I want to be just yet, but I’m doing very well off for someone my age. And not to compare to that, but also to compare to who I was a year ago 🏆. I need to focus on taking it one day at a time and looking at my goals in this sense.
I answered these questions along with some others when setting my goals and got so much clarity on myself. Answer these questions before you stuff your mouth with a glizzy and figure out what you really want out of life 💯.
And on the other hand, Happy Memorial Day. Say it back to me!

Sales person afraid of sales calls 😱
Believe it or not, there is something stopping you from achieving your goals. When someone asks me this question, I like to say it’s because it’s just a matter of time. If you’re a winner like me, you are probably thinking the same thing 🙇🏾♂️.
Let’s be honest, it’s more than this. There is something on your path stopping you from getting to where you need to be. And this could be a number of things. My problem is my poor self image 😶🌫️.
Some people call it imposter syndrome. I started to get a lot more clarity for my business, but then realized I was missing an important component to my funnel. There were no sales calls. Isn’t it ironic, a guy with a career in sales, wasn’t getting any sales calls. It’s insane. But I was afraid to get on sales calls because my mind was thinking of what if it’s not enough. What if I can’t help this person?
“80% of what we consume on a daily basis is negative.” - Zig Ziglar
The next logical thing to overcome your fears is to face them head on. With this fear of sales calls for my business in mind, I decided to book as many sales calls as I could. Get on as many appointments as possible and see how I can help people ☎️. Sales is about seeing someone with a problem and being the solution to it. I’ll let you know how these go, but this is how I’m overcoming my poor self image. How are you going to overcome yours?
Comment below what you can do to overcome your poor self image.
Westbrook challenged my mindset 🧠
Start asking yourself the right questions. You speak to yourself on a daily basis regardless🙇🏾♂️. But how can you start asking yourself the right questions to change your future?
First start with why❓. Why should you try? Why not? Why not you? And why not you now?
Russell Westbrook created a whole brand about this. I love this brand❤️. Why not? You can achieve anything you want to achieve for life. But you have to challenge yourself. Why can’t I be the greatest motivational speaker ever? I can and will. But you have to challenge yourself by asking the right type of questions💭. Westbrook averaged a triple double in multiple seasons as a 6’3 point guard. He did what was deemed impossible. Westbrook broke records people would die to try and break.
Asking the right type of questions is going to lead to you taking yourself to a whole other level. So start questioning why you can’t be whatever you put your mind to🧠.

Role playing cold calling as an att rep 📞
Cold calling is one of the most painful things to do as a sales rep. Why? Because you are interrupting someone during their precious time ⏰ to persuade them to take some sort of action.
But this is the problem. You are trying to close the sale 🤑 on the first contact you have with this person. What you should be trying to do is just introduce them to your world and get them to know, like, and trust you as soon as possible.
How can you do this?
Stating three easy facts. I coach my AT&T sales representatives to complete this with cold calls with this easy script.
“Hey how are you? Is this (whatever their name is)?”
They will then answer.
“Well, I’m (whatever your name is), your local AT&T representative. I know I’m catching you off guard with this call and you’re probably wondering why I’m calling. You’re probably busy so I promise not to take too much of your time.”
After this you go into whatever you are trying to ask them. But I train my reps to not think about getting the sale at first, but to shoot for introducing them into your world 🌎 . This could be with setting an appointment to see what you can do for their phone and their service. And then once they are in front of you, you can do the selling. Remember, focus on helping them and the money will always follow 💸.
What are some good introductions you would do for cold calls?

Fat boy working his way to success 🏆
The Bible says to Till the ground. What does this mean? This means metaphysically to work your body 💪🏾.
There aren’t a lot of fat self made millionaires. Stop using this as an excuse to not be in the gym 🏋🏾♂️. If you look good, you feel good and then you perform good.
I was a fat 12 year old who ate whole pizza 🍕 pies by myself. It was embarrassing to change my clothes for gym. Someone laughed 😂 at my scoops and made me feel 10x worse.
I didn’t make any excuses. I started to play basketball 🏀 and workout to put myself in the best shape I could. Stop making excuses and start tilling your ground.

Drunk networking 🍾
It’s not who you know. It’s who knows you 🏾. You’ve heard me say this millions of times.
Get out the house and meet some people at local networking events 🌐. It’s super easy to do. Just search on google networking events near me and they have free ones pop up there 👆.
I won a bottle of wine at the one. Honestly, I win something at everyone because Winnerz win 🏆. But honestly, they have cool prizes at all of them. And you can put something from your business up there to be raffled off and give you some publicity 💪🏾.
Go to networking events and build relationships that will help you grow. Relationships with a purpose 💯. And they can be right in your back yard.

Success moves backwards ⏮️?
Success is going to take work. It’s never something that just falls onto your lap ❌. Success works backwards?
What do I mean? You know the ending to your success 💫. Now it’s a matter of being ahead or being behind.
We work like God 🙏🏾. Why? Because we are gods too. We were made in the image and likeness of The Most High God. So we work just like he does. Know the ending and then know how you can speed up ⏭️ or slow down ⏮️.
This worked with my newsletter subscribers. I was getting one per month! But this was from the efforts of reaching out to 5 people per day. Now what happens if I move to 10 people per day? I should get 2 subscribers. You know what moves you forward or backwards.

Employee tells me what he’s not doing 😂
You’ve been too nice for too long. And when you are nice for that long, people start to walk all over you 🚶🏾♂️. They start to believe they can do anything they want to you.
This isn’t anyone else’s fault but your own 🏾. You are allowing people to walk all over you because you haven’t set any boundaries. This is the first step to killing your inner nice guy 🔪.
I had this manager before tell me he wasn’t going to do certain things because he was just perfect at everything. For starters, he really wasn’t ❌. He’s decent at certain things when it comes to selling, but still falls short of his goals on most months. Secondly, nobody is perfect at anything. Including myself.
When it comes to sales or life, I have a ton to learn 📚. No one has more to learn than me. But I am also a student. But with him I had to put my foot 🦶 down and we came up with a solution to how he was going to do it, but it was still getting done. And you don’t have to yell or be mean about it. You just let people know what your nonnegotiables are and they will help you succeed.
What are some boundaries you are going to start setting for yourself this year? And how are you going to start setting them?

Someone tackled me for the attention I bring 🏈
Don’t be needy. There’s nothing more annoying than someone who is constantly showing you how much they need you 😭. Always let them come to you.
Your value is increased when you show them who the boss is 😎. You have to set those boundaries and people will want to go to you more. And it works with picking up women too.
Obviously, I’m a married man 💍 so I don’t try to pick up any women. But if I’m being honest with myself, I’m a very attractive man. And women come to me all of the time telling me how handsome I am and trying to get with me. It may be the great cologne my brother got me for Christmas. Or it could just be how dizzy they get looking at the waves 🌊 in my hair. I don’t know, but they always come to talk to me.
And they come to me more because they see I’m not trying to talk to them. There was actually a woman who watched me tell another one I was good and didn’t want to talk to her. And when I did this, it made her want to talk to me even more. It got so bad, someone tackled me 🏈 and jumped on my back so girls wouldn’t talk to me.
Boundaries are important and they will make yourself seem less needy and more confident. That’s why my ring is such a magnet 🧲 . I’m married and they know they can’t have me which makes them want me more. This works with your business too.
Can you guess how?
