Stop Acting Hungry

Imagine that you are a gazelle and you are face-to-face with a bloodthirsty, hungry lion.
What do you do?

Run like the wind - blood pumping in your veins - lungs nearly exploding. Run faster and harder with fear in your heart. You know that the lion will chase you until you tire and fall from exhaustion and then you will surely be devoured.

But wait, at the last second the lion is distracted by an older, slower, less agile gazelle. You escape as the lion is diverted. You live to see another day. Later you are grazing on the same plain not fifty feet from the very same lion and her entire pride. The lions lick their chops. They are stuffed and tired from the hunt. But you and your gazelle pals are no longer afraid.



Let’s face it, no matter who or what you are, when someone is chasing you, your first impulse is to run. I have found that people often feel like that gazelle. They feel like they are being hunted, stalked, and eventually chased down. It happens in personal relationships as well as in business. I guess that’s because we are taught to act hungry.

But how can you avoid this. We live in an eat or be eaten world. What if we were able to break out of this paradigm? What if we were able to present our ideas or solutions in such a way that people sought us out, rather than us having to chase after them? What if we could apply this to marketing and motivate customers and prospects to choose our company, product or service over the competition? What if team members and business partners decided, on their own, that they WANTED to, “Do it the RIGHT way” rather than being told over and over again to correct their behavior?

How valuable would it be to your business if you could ATTRACT the right kind of employees, affiliate relationships and alliances? How about customers? Imagine attracting your ideal prospect without spending a dime on advertising or putting on a big sales pitch?

Come and join me at one of my upcoming full day, Attract More Business Workshop and learn how to apply the rules of attraction to your business.
