I find this both amusing and shocking. People ask us everyday to put them on backorder for great territories and then when a territory is released, inevitably someone asks…….
“Kent, if the territory is so great, then why did they release it?”
Is it a good question or an excuse to let opportunity pass you by? The reality is what do you care?
You know in the world of business as in our own personal lives, things change. Circumstances change. People move. A loved on passes away. A spouse gets relocated. A bad business decision is made and it has a ripple effect. There are A MILLION AND ONE SCENARIOS.
Rarely, do people release a 1-800-SELL-NOW territory because it didn’t work. In most cases, people cancel because they have something else going on in their lives that requires their attention OR they have never used the brand and feel as though they are wasting their money (they’re right).
Either way, if by their releasing of the territory you have the opportunity to grab on to the opportunity of a lifetime, should you really care about the circumstances that created this very opportunity?
I am often asked about the “secret” to our success in so many different areas. How is that we can excel in multiple businesses when it seems that everyone else is struggling?
I would tell you one VERY BIG reason is that we recognize opportunities when they arise and TAKE MASSIVE ACTION IMMEDIATELY! I have a saying in front of me that says “Those who think it cannot be done are usually being passed by those that are doing it.” Ask yourself, what side of that coin do you fall on?
So, although I understand inquiring about why someone released, I would NEVER allow someone else to determine my fate or future. This one thing is so ingrained in me that it goes against everything that I believe and the very fiber of my being. I WILL LIVE MY LIFE TO THE FULLEST AND SHOW MY KIDS WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE. If I feel like there is an opportunity in front of me that makes sense THEN I WILL TAKE ACTION.
READY. FIRE. AIM.
This is the secret to extraordinary success!
Do not misunderstand my point. We will always give you as much information as is available to us about why a territory has recently been released. But, don’t be surprised if while we are answering questions, your competition is buying the territory.
1-800-SELL-NOW and all of its features is one of the best values in the business today. Don’t let that opportunity slip through your fingers.
