Go for No changed our perspectives

I’ve always been a goal oriented career person. But, I’ve always been in the public sector. Della has been in front end customer service.

Now that we’ve started our own health and wellness franchises we’ve had a lot to learn. We experienced a lot of disappointment until we picked up on a couple lessons.

The first lesson was learned listening to the audio book Go for the No by Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton. An easy listen with the message, don’t set goals based on hearing Yes, set goals based on hearing No. My example is I used to set a goal of making 3 calls a day. They could be phone calls, emails, text messages, what ever you get the idea until I got 3 people to say Yes to my offer. Since my goal was to hear Yes, I experienced disappointment when I heard No. So much so, I often could not make that next call even though I’d not reached my daily goal. Go for the No taught me to set a higher goal of 20 calls where I heard No daily. Along the way, you hear Yes much more often. Regularly even more than the previous goal of 3 Yes’s per day.

Now instead of disappointment when I hear No, it’s almost elation.

We’ve heard from many coaches that we should not be involved in the outcome. It was not until I heard Go for the No that I’ve been successful in making that separation. That’s the second lesson we’ve picked up.

Fenton and Waltz have teamed with Ray Higdon to develop a sequel called Go for No for Network Marketers. We like the audio book format so that whether in the car or at home we can listen.

It’s one thing to understand a concept, it’s another to put it into practice. You have to get out and talk to people and hear no many, many times until the lesson is understood and applied.

This is not my chart. I found it on the Internet. When I read it I readily agreed with most of these. They are certainly ways to fail at marketing and recruiting. The third lesson we’ve picked up is don’t prejudge people. It’s not your business to decide if a person can afford or is ready to hear you message. Tell your story, let them decide.

I don’t know who succeeded brilliantly the first time out. Here’s some quotes from those who did not give up.

Shred 10

I’ve written about Shred 10 in the past. We‘ve learned the secret though.  The secret is to keep it up for 4 months straight.

Della and I have tried many diets. None have had long term success except Shred 10. I should start at the beginning though. Watch this from Dr. Mitra Ray and Jake Kelly.

Shred 10 is 10 days of focusing on your health.

  • eat whole food and substitute Complete Shakes for two meals a day. Don’t forget to take your Complete capsules as well
  • drink water
  • exercise most days
  • get 8 hours of sleep nightly

Eliminate

  • gluten and diary
  • alcohol
  • caffeine
  • processed foods
  • artificial and refined sugars
  • eating after 6 PM.

We had lots of help with a community, recipe book and guidelines.

Shred 10 is not done just once. It’s a jump start to a healthier life.

Della and I have had some health issues. We want to improve our health and enjoy our retirement. Here’s Dr. Ray again with her reasons for improving her health. She has some excellent information on why water or juice cleanse’s are not the answer.

Shred 10 is for men too. Complete pills have nearly eliminated my gout and Shakes have eliminated my knee joint issues. Here is what other men report.

How did we do in March? Take a look.

Since starting Shred10 in February we’ve gained energy, improved our lifestyle, shred bad habits and lost 26 lbs between us.

We start another Shred10 April 1. Want to join?  Sign up for Shred 10 Shred 10
