The Four Biggest Mistakes YOU Make With People:

Apr 4th 2011 at 12:58 PM


  1. Over time, you have developed a set way of dealing with almost everybody. But for best results in both business and your personal life, you need to tailor your response to people specifically to their personality type. In life, there are 4 distinctly different personalities, and you need to address each one differently. I know it sounds daunting. But it's actually easy, and the results are incredible!

  2. In business, you spend way too much time trying to "master" your product, your product, your product. People study the color and shade of the lipstick. They could wake up in the middle of the night and tell you how many grams of stuff are in the stuff. They study to become world class experts on how the long distance switches work, where the mushrooms were harvested, or some long grueling story of how people live to be 400 years old on some island somewhere because they eat the right berries.

    Most people are inclined to spend all their time learning and reciting that data. And that stuff doesn't mean ANYTHING!!!!! What is critical to your long-term success & happiness in life & business is the relationships you build. If you aren't focusing on any way possible to build those long-term relationships, then you truly do not have a clue what you are doing.

  3. You spend most of your life worrying about what other people are thinking about you. And in reality, most people aren't thinking anything about you at all. They're wondering what you're thinking about them! That's the reality. So when you have figured this out, life is fun. Life is stress-free. You don't walk around with all this chatter in your head, wondering what everybody else is thinking about you, saying about you.

  4. You just don't listen. Most people don't have a clue that failure to listen is what's holding them back in their personal life and in their business life. You have chatter, chatter, chatter going on in your mind, all the time. You just wait for the opportune time, when the other person stops talking long enough, so you can jump on them with your own deal, whatever you have going, whatever you think is earth-shatteringly important.

    You HAVE to tell them about it. Occasionally, out of politeness, you'll let them talk briefly. But what they say goes in one ear and out the other. Your purpose in life is to tell people what YOU think, because that is what's really important.

How'm I doing so far?

Yes, you've struggled for years. But with "Powerful Networking Secrets!", you'll have it all figured out in the next few days.
