Is your mind tricking you?

You've probably been tricked before. I know I have.

Last night while talking with our board, and what struck me the most from the conversation is that you and I are continually being attacked by the volume of information we get every day.

Look at the number of the platform we now have: Facebook, Gmail, Youtube, 23 different news outlets, tweeting, podcasts, apps …. Bing….etc...depending on what research you look at. Some say the average person is exposed to over 3,000 media messages a day. That's ridiculous! The amount of insight and long term wisdom you get...isn't connected to the exposure you have to this massive overload of information.

I'd say the best insight you ever got probably came from a simple sentence from a book you’ve read or something a wise person said. The thing is “we tend to overweigh what’s easily available to us”.

A daily checklist like this one can help you overcome this mental bias;

1. No Social media or news in the morning (It massively affects the productivity for the day) 2. Attacking the hardest task first thing in the morning 3. Exercising daily meditation and working out early in the morning

So, it's up to you. You have to understand your natural biases - so you can control what you allow to impact your brain...There's a saying that goes...

"The best things in life are free. The second best are expensive."

Obviously, they are talking about Lamborghini's and yachts. But I'd argue that the most expensive item isn't Lamborghini's or yachts or even “Freedom”. It's ignorance. Most people tend to confuse it with Freedom, It’s NOT! Remember, pearls aren't delivered on your dinner plate. You have to dive for them and shuck open a lot of oysters. I would suggest you create a checklist as I shared above for yourself, here’s why this is even more important if you want to thrive in this new rapidly changing environment.

You see, our brain has limited-capacity...

It easily drifts into working with what’s easily available to it and the brain can’t use what it can’t remember or what it is blocked from recognizing, because it is heavily influenced by one or more psychological tendencies bearing strongly on it, so, our mind overweighs what is easily available and gets tricked by merely the availability of information.

“A thought you are thinking is not worth more merely because it is easily available to you”

The blogs you visit, the news you watch, the people you follow, they don’t necessarily care if that’s in your best interest.

What’s easily available to you is usually not the best information. TV is easily available with the press of a finger. But it's usually packed with negative news stories that add no value.

You look up what’s the top selling book on Amazon, it’ might be some great self help book about taking your business to the next level...but that doesn’t mean it has the best insights to take YOUR BUSINESS to the next level. Neither does YouTube or anything of that…in the “Information Age” it’s more about the consolidation of the information. Compartmentalizing only the relevant information used to achieve a result.

Luckily for you, we’ve done the research on how to grow/scale a business through marketing, applied it to over 150+ Businesses, put years of hard work on one thing, and compiled it into a proven system.

So, if you want to grow YOUR BUSINESS to the next level,

You must have an abundant source of highly-qualified sales appointments and a sales methodology to close them into clients and Financial Clients Fast is just the right fit for you.

You don’t have to spend money on “paid ads”, Cold Calling, Networking Events, or sit back and wait for Referrals, or build any complex sales funnels...None of that.

We do everything for you so you can focus on making YOUR BUSINESS grow. Let’s see if we can help.

I want more clients!

Cheers, To Your Greatness!
