You’ve got to get rid of the objection – because the objection is starting with you, and you’re projecting it onto your customers. If you’ve been in sales for a long time, you know exactly what I’m saying. A lot of times you can see rookie sales people on the phone or dealing with prospects, and they are creating themselves at the other end of the phone. They’re taking their objections and putting them out there in other people’s minds.
For example, if you’re sitting there going, “Oh, I hope they don’t object to price, I hope they don’t object to price…” Guess what’s going to come up in the first two minutes? Price! It’s going to come up as an objection. Or “I hope they don’t think that we’re a pyramid scheme.” You are doing network marketing, what’s going to come up? Pyramids – almost magically.
