#241 The benefits of thinking small
Bumper stickers, pastors, books, motivators, & movies all urge you to think Big...they say that we think too small in a world vast w opportunities...and sometimes they’re wrong. There are moments in your life where it’s a benefit to think small. 👉👉Thanks for catching the show. Please share with one person who could use today’s episode.

#240 The first question is, “Will you show up?”
We all wonder what’s on the other side of our leap. “If I do ___, will they show up?” Questions bang in our head, “Will it work?” “Is it worth it?” “Will I look stupid...is this all a crazy dream?” We want to know the results but the real question is, “Will you (first) show up?” 👉👉Thanks for catching the show.

#239 Working with the Endowment Effect in Sales
He got free tickets & now wants to turn around a sell them to you for more than face value? A customer wants payoff for their trade? Grandma left the paid for house to her in the will & now she wants to sell it over market value? All of these are examples of the Endowment Effect & we’re all susceptible to it. In sales this Effect can be frustrating...but it doesn’t have to be...it can be used for you not against you. 👉👉Thanks for catching the show.

#238 You are not a victim
Many things may have happened to you...some of them completely out of your control & completely unfair and as painful as it may be, you’re not a victim.

#236 You’re Not Lazy, You Lag
The reason why so many don’t make it in sales; the book doesn’t get written; you never finish school nor stick to the workout program isn’t all bc you’re lazy...it’s bc you Lag. Lag is that space between what you’re doing & seeing a result & many times we don’t push through bc we don’t see that what we’re doing is working nor worth it. 👉👉Thanks for supporting the show.

#235 Bowling With No Bumpers 🎳
We were set...the lane & bowling ball were picked...the nicknames were put on the screen (I was “Egg” for Egghead), the crazy colored bowling shoes were laced up...we were ready, except for 1 thing...no bumpers to prevent from my daughter’s ball rolling into the gutter. So my daughter Mack had a choice to make...we all have a choice to make. 👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show. Please share with one person who could use today’s episode.

#232 Tell me when to start
In his book Relentless, Tim Grover writes of a time a labor dispute threatened to delay or even cancel the NBA season. Bc of the delay many of the players didn’t train- they just sat around waiting for someone to say the season was starting. Bc of the lack of training, when the season did start many were injured & out. Today’s episode parallels that NBA season...why wait for someone to tell you to start before preparing for your “season?” 👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show.

#230 Don’t look only at what’s Next...what’s Necessary?
It’s been one of those days...one of those days I ask “For what?!” Some daze seem unclear...fuzzy in fact. Then I come across Francis of Assisi’s quote, “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you’re doing the impossible.” But first I gotta get past next. 👉👉Thanks for catching the show.

#229 Have a comedians mindset
I can imagine it’s gotta be tough for an actor...to finally get the gig, hire the crew-lighting, locations, etc...to laboriously shoot the scenes over and over again...to get it all edited & produced...only to have the film get the ax. No big screen, only a dusty shelf. All that work & the actors out of a job. But a comedian can get the ax too, but at least they have a new gig 2 blocks away. 👉👉Thanks for checking out today’s show.

#228 Remember Tomorrow
Jesse Itzler is the kind of guy that does what he sees. He’s been a rapper, wrote songs for the NBA, co-founded Marquis Jets w no planes or experience, climbed mountains (also w no experience), & ran 100 mile races. Basically he lives life fully, but things do get tough...he does want to quit and when he feels like giving up, “Remember Tomorrow” keeps him going. 👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show, please share w one person who could use today’s episode.

#226 Easier said “than” done
You’ve said it...I’ve said it...we’ve all said the phrase, “Easier said than done,” when we feel like the task looks simple to do, but it’s not.

#225 Make “Be” your side hustle
We were all asked the same question... hell we probably had to do a report in 2nd grade, “What do you want to Be when you grow up?” We said we wanted to be an athlete, teacher, doctor, lawyer, car salesman (😳)...what’s crazy is no one corrected us. Those titles are what we wanted to “Do” not “Be,” so we do...do...do that’s all it seems to amount to week in & out is a mountain of Do, but what about your Be? It’s in there, your Be is that pull & when Do & Be align, watch out!. 👉👉Thanks so much for listening to today’s show please share with 1 person that you haven’t shared the show w yet.

#224 A Tale Of Two Wes’
Wes Moore....they both had the same name; they grew up only blocks apart from one another, yet one became a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, & even served in the White House...while the other is serving a life sentence for murder. Successful Wes said his life could’ve easily been the other Wes’ life...so what was the difference if they both grew up in the same environment? Today’s episode shows the razor thin, delicate line we walk in Life. No matter what, be thankful today. 👉👉Please share today’s show with 1 friend. Thanks for listening.

#223 You’re the wabi sabi
The Japanese word wabi sabi means that although an object’s shape is not perfectly round & the finish is weathered and distinguished- even thought its imperfect, there’s beauty in the imperfection. The reality of wabi sabi is that nothing lasts; nothing’s finished; & nothing’s perfect. Hmm 🤔 I wonder who fits that reality? 👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show.

#222 Kick the ball the same
As a young man, Josh Altman’s kicking coach told him that no matter the score...no matter what’s on the line, kick the ball the same. You can’t control the crowd & all of the externals that surround it, but you can control your focus & effort. It’s a lesson he’s taken with him to become a million dollar realtor & tv personality ...no matter the circumstances or client, he always “kicks the ball the same.” 👉👉Thank you for rating the show; if you haven’t yet, would you leave a rating (& review) & more importantly please share with just 1 person who could use today’s episode.

#221 Fight the cause not the cure
As much as 97% of funding for illnesses & diseases are allocated toward finding a cure leaving only 3% to discover what’s causing it in the first place. Many times in our lives we use the same percentages; we spend most of our thoughts& efforts on curing our situation, but spend very little on what’s causing it in the first place. 👉👉Thanks for catching today's show.

#219 Don’t take it personal
We’re taught early on in sales to not “take it personal...” when a customer burns off on you, gets upset and loses it on you, or when the boss embarrasses you in front of others...don’t even take it personal when your kids want nothing to do with you...”they’ll come around.” But HTH are you supposed to take something when it personally/professionally hurts? 👉👉Thanks for supporting the show.

#218 Coach the Smalls
We read that doing (or not doing) certain things can be detrimental to our health yet we don’t stop (nor start) bc that detriment is “someday.” We think that we’ll have time to make the correction , but today, we’ll just keep on keeping on. No matter what’s said or shown, we won’t change until we’re ready to change. It’s the same thing for employees/children/others, you see their vast potential of what they could be or do yet they don’t and it frustrates the hell out of you. Here’s how you can coach these mindsets. 👉👉I appreciate you supporting the show. Would you leave a rating to help get the show out to others and share with JUST ONE other person? 🙏 You rock!

#216 5 Ways to work 1/2 days
Growing up, JT McCormick & his mom barely got by, constantly moving & barely eating. As he got older,,not only did he have to fight poverty, he also had to fight racism too. (He’s biracial) To fight it, he did the only thing he knew to do to keep anyone or any circumstance from holding him down...he outworked everyone and began to successfully climb out & up. As he began to catch some momentum, he ran into a very successful man who gave him the secret to his massive success...”I only work 1/2 days...” 👉👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show.

#212 "How Long?!"
At the age of 36 Dr. Paul Kalanithi was a successful neurosurgeon. He worked with those who were terminally ill & they all asked the same question..."How long?!" Paul questioned, when facing such dire circumstances, what made Life worth living? He soon experienced his own answer...Dying's not the worst thing that could happen...not living while you're here is. 👉👉Thanks for listening.

#210 Tell your story
When he speaks audiences, Nick Nanton has an exercise that he has everyone in the room write down their firsts...first car, home, love, kiss,etc...then he has each person compare their firsts w the other person’s firsts sitting right beside them and if the firsts are identical, he’ll pay them $10,000. It never happens bc no two lists...no two firsts...no two people have identical stories. What you do may seem commoditized, but how you do it ain’t...bc you have a story to tell. Now go tell it.👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show!

#209 You know you can’t or don’t think you can?
To know you can’t do something is to have first hand experience that you cannot do it...right now. But to know you can’t is not necessarily permanent, it just means that you lack the necessary skills to hit the mark immediately..to know causes you to raise your game up..to increase your intensity..to sharpen your focus to go at it again. But that’s to “know”...how many times have we backed down in Life simply bc we didn’t think we can? We never knew firsthand...we never failed to gauge where we must get better...we never asked bc we thought the answer to be No...today we’re going to know from this point forward. 👉👉Thanks so much for checking out the show.

#207 You don’t need a blueprint you need a plan
We’re quick to use THE one...someone’s blueprint that they used to lose weight, sell or save more, invest wiser, or just got stanky rich...we use what worked best for them, but it may not be best for you. Often when their blueprint doesn’t work for us, we give up, discouraged. Success in any field isn’t a one size fits all & blueprints are configured to exacting standards and measurements AFTER all of the kinks and reworks have been smoothed out. You’ll get your blueprint, but first you need a plan. 👉👉Thanks for catching the show. Please rate, review, subscribe & share to help spread the message. 💯

#206 Just 5 more minutes...
Seth Godin said, “People don’t believe what you tell them, they barely believe what you show them, they often believe what their friends tell them, they always believe what they tell themselves. What leaders do is they give people stories they can tell themselves...stories about the future & about change.” We’ve got to be better storytellers bc we can tell others what to do..show them how to do it, but all of that is short lived unless they tell it first to themselves. What we have to do as a leader is change the narrative they tell themselves...sometimes when they’re just about to quit it’s saying “just 5 more minutes...”

The other day I ran into a buddy & he told me that he left his old job-when I asked him about his new gig he quipped, “Dude I love it...no stress...nonnnne!” As I walked away I thought about it...No Stress?

I never thought of her to be in sales but she told me she’s #5 in the state at selling Life Insurance & when I asked her how she did it she said of course that she “cared,” but then went on to tell me about a time when she had first started & a police officer came in to review his policies...2 week’s later he was shot and killed, leaving behind a wife & young son ...& she didn’t ask him about Life Insurance bc she was too scared to ask...This is an important show...how many times do we tell ourselves no instead of asking others...yes they may say no...but what if they said yes? 👉👉Thanks for checking out the show.

Pat Summitt, Head Coach for the Tennessee Lady Vols for 38 years notched 1098 wins, 8 titles, & 100% graduation rate—every single player who went through her program graduated college! There’s no question she was an exceptional coach...but there’s no doubt she wasn’t a perfect coach- & she’d be the first to tell you. There were times & moments she’d wish she could take back- decisions she made, actions she took, & words taken too far...with all of her victories she made many mistakes, but she never stopped coaching...& neither should you.

#197 What’s your alter ego?
To complete 50 Iron Men in 50 states in 50 days, James Lawrence had to develop an alter ego. That’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, & then run a marathon, 26.22 miles..& that’s one race! Do that same race every day for 50 straight days in all 50 states. The Iron Cowboy had to take over, kick in to see Lawrence through bc not even halfway in, his mind and body wanted to quit. We all have an alter ego- that other side of us that when your body & mind wants you to run & hide that 6th gear kicks in...you have it...we all do..& you need to release it.

#196 How I exist in your reality
Probably one of the most referenced to people on my podcast is Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell who wrote the book that later became a movie “Lone Survivor.” He said “People live in a reality that is unique to them. They build it themselves to make it perfect. The people that exist in other people’s realities are the ones who succeed..” We all think that our way is the right way..the right way to manage, parent, save, lose weight...we have the right way to pray, deal with others, and even know the right way to run the country..we live in our own reality- I have mine, but you have your reality too & we both think that we’re right. The key to success is how do you stay adaptable & fluid in Life to see how other people see..to suspend judgement and hold on to the notion that there’s more that you don’t know than do know.👉👉Thanks so much for tuning in..you can catch a video clip of the show on YouTube just search Marsh Buice & it should pop up.

#195 Pain ..& the process
When my dad had total knee replacement he said the most painful part was when they showed up the next day to begin therapy...they pushed, bent, flexed, & stretched so much that he thought his knee was going to rip back open. Although the pain was excruciating, the therapists said they had to put the pain through a process or it would forever affect his walk....you may have not had surgery but you sure as hell know pain & although we don’t want to feel even more pain, we must put pain through its process otherwise it’ll affect our walk. 👉👉Thanks sooooo much for taking a few minutes out to catch today’s show.

Fear...oh we know fear..one of the only things that’s loyal in our lives is ole’ fear..we tell fear that we hate it..we talk about it..we express it to others and even weave it into our prayers..but fear ain’t going nowhere, it stays right there. Fear is a good thing..it has its place in our lives..it’s there to protect and provoke you, so fear ain’t the thing that’s holding you back.

#190 Most graduate 🎓...few educate
Ahhhh the season is upon us. The envelopes are showing up in your mailbox & on your office keyboard...it’s graduation time & the ones you watched grow or barely even know want you to put a lil something in an envelope for them. Graduates have met a standard set by a board...but education has a committee of 1 & her name is Life. Education starts within...Today’s episode is focused on education...& it’s not about schools, scholarships, nor scores...it’s about & on you..always has...always will be. 👉👉A side note, I don’t give graduates money I prefer to sow seeds of knowledge. 2 books I give are “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George Classon (about wealth building) & “As A Man Thinketh” by James Allen..both books are very short reads and can set the right mind frame for them. 💯💯Thanks for listening.

#189 Opportunity in Bad
We don’t ever think of Bad as being an opportunistic situation...a sudden downsize due to divorce or bankruptcy...a loss of a loved one..the job you busted your ass for- seeing them through when they were at their leanest...you stuck by them but today they’re moving on ..without you. Today’s episode is pulling on that common thread we all share..the share of hurt, pain, fear, & panic..to find opportunity in bad. 👉👉Thanks for catching today’s show.

While filming Deliverance, actor Burt Reynolds was stopped on set and told, “Stop acting, just behave...we’ll wait for you...bc we can’t take our eyes off of you.” In a world of actors, we need more of those who behave...those who bring the uniqueness, boldness, whit, charm, expertise, your beauty of “Me” to the position you’re in.

#180 “I just want to die...”
Pretty shocking title I know, but we’ve either heard someone say these words...and/or we’ve even thought them when it came to our own lives...when things seem too much, too unbearable ...when the world seems to close in and make us claustrophobic- confining us to a world of darkness we want to hit the stop button in Life. A friend said these words to me recently..it hurt to hear them...but I can relate...I’ve felt this way too. Today’s episode albeit it taboo- I felt needed to have some light shed on it. Some would say “I’d never,” while others secretly admit..but either way I say don’t be so quick. This isn’t a morbid episode...it’s a celebration....of Life...your Life. 👉👉Thank you for listening ✌️

#163 “I’m not the worst of what I’ve done”
Recently I came across a new series on Netflix called “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” hosted by David Letterman....& it features high profile guest- (hence the title)- now the audience had no clue who they’re about to see & the first one I watched was Jay Z and the last 10 min of the show was epic for me. Towards the end Letterman asks Jay about his infidelity & Jay said, “(my wife) she knew I’m not the worst of what I’ve done...” Today’s episode was not what was planned, but I felt the need to share...someone’s worst is not their best...it’s not all that they are...it’s not all that they’ve got...there’s good in there & the way to break the cycle is for you to pay it forward. 👉👉I appreciate you 👉👉thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#162 The Minimalist Leader
You see The Minimalist Movement all around- from tiny houses to living out of just one back...doing more-being free with less & while that may all fine & good in living it’s not F&G as a Leader. When Dr Jill Bolte Taylor was recovering from her stroke, one of her specific needs was “Ask me a specific question & give me the space needed to search for the specific answer...” Today’s episode is a hand raiser for me- I’ve been too quick to ask a question and just as quick to answer it for others....I didn’t give them the space needed to fill in the blanks. I get as leaders we’re minimal on time- so much coming at us on a daily basis...but when it comes to teaching & involving others in their own lives...we gotta be Maxamilists (yup I created a word) —give others more time to search for their answers. 👉👉Thanks for taking time out to listen.

#157 I’m not a bargain
In speaking to a wealthy investor, he told me something that really resonated w me. He said, “Marsh, everybody’s looking for a bargain, but what I’m searching for is the best value.” This statement landed w me bc I’m not a bargain...but I am the best value. See a bargain is something that bears risk, but is below cost...below market value..so the question for the buyer is it worth the risk? But a value on the otherhand...a value is what something is worth in relation to the resources (i.e. time & money) invested. Today’s episode is a reminder that you’re not a bargain, but you are the best value. 👉👉Thanks for listening. To improve rankings so others can see the show would you rate it for me please?

In today’s episode, yes I agree that maybe we should look at our lives as unfinished- ever improving works of art...but maybe Da Vinci wouldn’t mark his paintings as completed ...maybe we stay at a job, entangled in a toxic relationship...or don’t start a new position or business for fear of being judged...so we hide in the safety of “still working on my painting.” 👉👉Thanks for tuning in...for feedback or suggestions please email me @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#144 The 9 Basic Human Needs
While working a deal I needed a salesperson to go get some more paperwork from his customer & after outlining what I need he just stared at me and asked if I was going to go do it? The old me-when I was a new mgr would’ve blown up thinking that the sp was being soft...but that wasn’t the case...in reading “The Coaching Habit” by Michael Bungay Stainer he wrote of the 9 Basic Human Needs: Affection, Creation, Recreation, Freedom, Identity, Understanding, Participation, Protection, & Subsistence (my success depends on your help). ...these are the 9 we all need as humans (hopefully you’re a human). So Stainer writes when someone wants (asks) something from you - don’t jump in nor go off...they’re asking you bc they have a want behind their need(s). Too often as leaders we’re too quick to assume, advise, or blow up, but if you tap into their want, you can align with “what” (they need) and coach more effectively. 👉👉Try spotting the needs behind the want questions of others this week & share

#138 You’re w-w-welcome
Like 1,237,314 other parents I didn’t feel like cooking so I stopped and grabbed the kids something from McDonald’s & the guy taking my order stuttered. I was amazed- I know what it’s like to stutter bc I used to as well (bad)...& here he is having to work the drive thru! When I asked him why did they put him in the drive thru he told me, “They didn’t put me here-I asked to be put here...” Today’s episode is a challenge to take the path of most resistance instead of least. Seeing how he handled up in he drive thru was an inspiration for me to find one thing today that makes me break out in a cold sweat..that gives me the bubble guts...if it scares me then it’s the right thing to do. 👉👉Share your thoughts w me @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#137 Don’t be a ticker watcher
There are many times I’ll record the podcast & then read something later that I wish I would’ve added with a “Oh by the way” segment. After yesterday’s episode of pulling the emotion out of a decision you’re about to make & getting back on track when you do screw up, I was reading retired poker player Annie Dukes book “Thinking In Bets” & she uses a 10-10-10 rule to make better decisions by putting the regret in front of the decision...how many times would be want a do over in certain situations? I like Dukes’s idea of putting the regret in front of the decision you’re about to make. Today’s episode adds to yesterday’s thoughts in hopes of helping you clarify your choices. 👉👉Rock it out today! 👉👉Thanks for listening, subscribing, & sharing. I’m @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

This lady grabbed a handful of complimentary donuts 🍩 justifying it by saying “I know I shouldn’t but didn’t eat breakfast this morning!” ...and I’m not judging I did it just the other day by eating a half bag of nachos & chili . ...why do we do things KNOWING it’s only going to make things worse? Knowing we’re going to beat ourselves up continuously afterward. Today’s episode is about Acceptance of the Exception...what to do when you feel the pull of emotions to give consent to making a poor decision..& what to do to get back on track when we do hiccup. 👉👉Thanks for listening, sharing, subscribing, & sending your thoughts & suggestions.

#135 Practice makes..your practice
Anders Ericsson has the “10,000 hour rule” which was made popular by Malcolm Gladwell’s book “Outliers” & the idea is to be world class at something you’ve got to deliberately practice 10k hours. We all agree that to gain an advantage & move up in Life you must practice...but do you practice being dumped..divorced..bankrupt..being passed over or stabbed in the back...we damn sure don’t want 10,000 hours of disaster but the question is when tough, altering moments ensure how do you practice bc like it or not you are practicing something 👉👉Would love to hear your thoughts on this one @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com 👉👉Thanks for listening, subscribing, & sharing with others.

Takeru Kobayashi is a Japanese competitor who came on the scene by winning the Nathan’s Coney Island Hot Dog 🌭 Eating Contest. He blew up the previous record- doubling the results by asking the question how can make eating hot dogs “easier.” Easy tends to have a negative connotation when it comes to making strides of accomplishments- we think to do something worthwhile it’s gotta be grueling..that’s just not the case.

Pop was a crude ass equipment manager I had while playing football @ McNeese State- as a freshman he would cuss you out if you tried to get new equipment...but he got nicer to you as the years went by. My junior year I wanted a pair of gloves (for fashion) but Pop wouldn’t buy them & when I pressed him he told me “Son my only job is to equip you so that you have a fighting chance to win & whatever the hell I give you, you go out there & fight to win...” 👉👉Today’s eppy: You are the equipment manager in some people’s lives- you’re there to equip them but you can’t ultimately play the game for them... 👉👉 Quotes from the show. 💥 “You can’t want victory, success, happiness, or change for someone more than they want it for themselves.” 💥 “Some people you’ve gotta let fall...others you must painfully watch go under..& you must let them bc

#124 Fearcasting
The 7 day forecast is calling for rain...and even though it may rain everyday, I still have to go to work, take the kids to school, go to the store, & workout...in other words Life still has to go on- I just have to adjust and keep it moving. It’s crazy how we see the storms coming in the commonalities of Life, but when we see the dark skies of something potentially more serious we freeze up..Fearcasting instead of forecasting- we accept and do nothing productivly instead of seeing what’s looming and preparing for the possibilities. There’s always options..Be your own weatherman- fears often carry a heavier impact than the storms themselves. Listen in and share your thoughts @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

He re-welded, replaced the rivets & now it’s as good as new...his young son gets out there w him too & occasionally builds things on his own. When I asked him how he’s taught his son how to do these things he said that he tells his son, “When you’re struggling, make progress first then come ask for help if you haven’t figured it out.” Right then & there I realized that I’ve been too quick to help my children, friends, & co-workers...Today’s eppy is about giving others (& others giving you) the opportunity to struggle.

Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard Brain Scientist who suffered a stroke causing her to lose her memory, speech, & the ability to think about the future. In many ways it was the worst thing that could’ve happened to her..but it also one of the best things that could’ve happened for her. In her book “Stroke of Insight” Taylor discovered that a chemical is automatically released in our system when powerful emotions such as anger, jealousy, & resentment are triggered- the chemical shoots through & out of our body in less than 90 seconds...in less than 90 seconds the response is over....or is it? Today’s eppy digs into that fascinating fact asking how much of these emotions have you chosen to carry for so long...and didn’t have to?

Recently I learned 3 plays from sports psychologist / mental toughness coach Graham Betchart. These plays piggyback well in what we’ve been talking about recently which is looking at mistakes differently, not letting humps become Himalayas (mountains) in your Life, & working with precision not “ish.” I’d urge you to find the holes in your daily performance and go back and listen to those episodes. So Graham starts by giving his professional athletes 3 plays: W.I.N, Play Present, & Next Play Speed. Listen in as we break each one down ...and the good news is you don’t even have to be an athlete nor out of breath to run these. 👉👉I’m at thesaleslife1@gmail.com

Chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin, was on lighting young chess players up on his quest to becoming a national chess champion. He was doing so well that he thought he was invincible until a "nobody" sat him down-beating him out of his crown-nearly destroying his desire to ever play chess again. It wasn't until Josh uplugged-got away from it all and went out sailing that he got 2 of his most valuable lessons from being on the water: Be present & release control. Some days we're thinking too far ahead...or too far behind and we miss the only thing that is real: This Moment...we want everything to go as planned and when it doesn't we dig in-fiercly trying to control and outcome when the only thing we can do is influence it and let go.

It has to be discovered within the depths of one’s own heart when a person is finally ready to go looking for it & not before...” (David Brooks “ The Road To Character)...you go looking for it...not “out there” but “in here”... yes there will be painful, confused darkness..you will be challenged harshly, you must stand even when humiliated...sometimes silent when unfairly abused...& restrained when provoked... yes there will be injustices and unfairness- the ball doesn’t always bounce your way...but you see what needs to be done & you get it done...in spite of👉👉👉thanks for listening & sharing your thoughts @marshbuice (Twitter) @thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#97 Unscripted but ready
As told in Adam Grant’s book “Originals” here was a 34 year old man staring at a blank piece of paper....in just a few hours Dr. Martin Luther King was to deliver a speech to a quarter of a million in attendance and millions watching on TV ...here he was about to give the biggest speech of his life and he didn’t know what to write down. As he walked to the podium he was still making edits & revisions and what he delivered wasn’t what was actually written. The Dream wasn’t on paper, but it was delivered from his heart. Life will take you off-script...and you may feel like you’re not ready- that there’s nothing written down for you to follow...you may feel you’re not ready but you are prepared. 👉👉👉Thanks for tuning in— share your thoughts with me on Twitter @marshbuice or thesaleslife1@gmail.com

#96 The Emphasis Of Pain
Dr. Michael Debakey...I knew that name... come to find out there’s a street that passes right in front of one of the hospitals here in town. (He was born here) Dr. Debakey was the father of heart procedures- world renowned. One day he found himself on the other end of the procedure he’d studied, written, & performed...only now he was experiencing what he’d devoted his whole life to. He said, “...the Pain didn’t teach me anything about the heart...it simply emphasized what I’d already learned.” Today’s eppy deals with a subject we’re all too familiar with: PAIN...we think that just bc we’ve learned something that we shouldn’t have pain...but that’s just not true...listen in and share your thoughts @ thesalelife1@gmail.com or on Twitter @marshbuice👉👉👉thanks for tuning in 💯

#89 A’s, B’s, & See’s
John Ruskin wrote, “...the greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is see something & tell what it saw in a plain way.” This is one of those quotes that has a different meaning each time you read it. Today’s eppy is about seeing and sharing what you see in a plain way—that’s what this podcast is..a collection of my see’s and how it relates to me. The thought being if I see it and share it, not only do I see deeper bc I refine and share, but it’ll cause others to think, see, & share what they see too.

In today’s eppy, you may think that you’re the only one going through...and you’re right...you’re the only one going through YOUR ordeal- it’s yours, but it’s yours for a process not a punishment.

#86 That’s a guarantee 👌
Tom Bilyeu (he’s got a good podcast btw) has a saying, “When it comes to failure, success isn’t guaranteed, but the struggle is.” I just finished Nike co-founder Phil Knight’s memoir “Shoe Dog” and you talk about struggle...this guy faced annihilation sooo many times ...no cash, operating in the red most of the time- robbing Peter to pay Paul, betrayed, chased by the FBI, & slapped with a $25 million bill from Uncle Sam....oh he struggled but it was worth it.

It’s funny how you can jot something down & look back at it much later and it carries a much larger meaning at the perfect time. I ran across a quote I wrote from John Gray’s book “ I Am Number 8”...”The next time you feel you’re walking/working to a place of mediocrity, know God never sends greatness to mediocre places for the mediocrity to remain. He doesn’t send light where light already is...He sends light to darkness & makes sure you have enough oil to sustain you.”......Today’s episode is a pick me up eppy- if you feel as though you’re the hamster and life is but a wheel, listen in and tap your reserves. —-Thanks for listening to the show & appreciate the feedback @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

We’ve all had missed chances in life, but Munger has a unique perspective on moving through his missed chances that he got reading the philosophy of Epictetus. “Every missed chance in life is an opportunity to behave well; learn something; & it’s your duty not to be submerged in self pity, but something constructive.” Instead of pouting & pointing @ missed chances, what if we stayed Mungry. 👉👉👉Please rate and review the show👉👉also let me know your thoughts @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

Reflection
I’m closing this week with Letter 15 Of Eric Greitens’ book “Resilience.” This Letter is probably the most important in my life right now bc I’ve done a poor job reflecting...taking a moment to reflect. Not reflecting has caused me to end up bankrupt, divorced, and reaping the consequences of poor decisions. I’m where I am today through a lack of reflection. Today is a game changer for me. I will take a minute each day to ask 4 questions: Why am I here? What’s going on around me? What am I going to do about it? How will my actions affect others? 👉👉journaling these 4 questions will enable me to Act, Reflect, Plan & Act again more impactful-more resiliently.👉👉👉thanks for tuning in you can always hit me up @ thesaleslife1@gmail.com

The value of pain
Letter 13 of Eric Greitens' book "Resilience" is the Letter of Pain. CS Lewis called pain "God's megaphone to rouse a deaf world." Pain wakes us up..shakes us from our beds of satisfaction and complacency...he writes that there are 2 kinds of pain: The pain we seek...& the Pain that seeks us. Seeking pain is bettering yourself... but what about the pain that seeks us... that singles us out...well there's value in that too. Finding the wisdom in the hurt.

Why you tense though?
We continue chopping up comedian Steve Martin's book "Born Standing Up." Yesterday's episode dealt with the 75/25 % (or 80/20) principle that it takes three quarters effort/refinement to achieve 25% massive success (if done right). As Martin created his niche, he did the opposite of all comedians. He asked the question, "What if I remove the punchline and created more tension, so the audience chose when and where to laugh?" Today's episode asks the question, as it relates to the book, what if instead of giving your customers a "punchline" ..to react, what if you created more tension- good tension that caused a stronger response and urge to do business with you. ----if you'd Rate, Review, & Share the show I'll dance at your funeral (or just be appreciative)---annnnnd drop me a line, thesis, or message in a bottle to thesaleslife1@gmail.com ✌️

Focus on the points not wins
Wally Green was a former gang member turned champion ping pong player. On paper he was at a disadvantage bc Wally started competing at age 19 whereas his competitors had been playing since they were 3 years old. In order to improve and stay with the sport he had to play mind games with himself. He took a unique approach by instead of of weighing his progress just on winning, he focused on points. As you set a goal on weight loss, finances, sales performance, or even relationships keep score...not on wins/losses but on points. Here's how...

Reporter Bob Garfield reported that 543 million Americans consider themselves seriously sick... which is troubling bc there's only 323 million Americans living in the U.S. Either we are all doomed or someone's seriously double dipping... Many of us are double dipping- living in a state of fear, worrying about things not within our control. Today we're talking about controlling the controllable- things you and only you have influence over.

"D"_____all of the above
My daughter MacKenzie had a multiple choice test coming up so after she'd studied, I called the questions out to her but mixed up the answers. She got them all wrong bc she'd memorized the letter...and didn't learn the answer. We mostly live our lives through memorization. We do things automatically...we've stopped learning. Maybe we need to toss the letters...

It's a comma not a period
Professionally when you say your name, you pause -a comma of sorts, and state your title. When I lost my title- a title I'd worked for decades to achieve- when I lost that distinction, I took it hard. I'd lost my footing and slid back down the mountain I once had climbed. I had to learn that where I was in life was a comma-a pause and not a period...it wasn't over for me, it was a new beginning.

No...thank YOU

The Life of Zai
The guy in the blue banged up Toyota was back again for what seemed like the 275th time. This time he agreed to buy...I think. After hours of going back and forth he bought and in the process, he told me a story...without knowing, he showed me a life he was living of ultimate sacrifice- leaving behind what he dearly loved..planting for others to harvest.

Stop hanging with ziggers
It's human nature to have a herd mentality- we tend to do what everyone around us is doing. But if you want to be successful in selling ...if you want an unpatterned Life.. stop zigging like everyone else and start zagging.

Make January 1 today
We've got 50+ days before January 1- the day we've acknowledged we ate and spent too much and worked out and saved too little. Once again we set the damn goals and quit them as fast as we set them. Why wait for "THE DATE" why not just informally start early- getting an head start without the pressure of the New Year.

The chatter don't matter
Some of the best conversations I've ever had have started at the urinal. A salesperson recently was standing there saying "I'm trying to make it! I can't make any money!" It's those moments-when we're speaking defeat that we have to catch ourselves and realize who & what is really standing in our way. (Zip up first)

Right is wrong..wrong is right
The LSU Tigers- then coached my Nick Saban were playing the Tennessee Vols for the 2001 SEC Championship. Losing, no momentum, full of injuries, & facing a 4th and inches- Saban went for it. He said when he made the call he knew it was the wrong call. It was too late - LSU turned the ball over...but going for it sent a clear message. Strategically it was the wrong call, but psychologically it ended up being the right one. Sometimes we're too quick to punt in life- even if it seems the logical thing to do, there are times you've got to just go for it.

Your history..their score
A customer of mine I was recently telling me about his friend's recent car buying experience. She was telling him that it took forever & that she felt the rate was too high-she felt she deserved better bc she "had good credit!" He cut her off saying "No you have a good score, I have a good history." ...Don't focus so much on other's score- their blips of success and forget you're building a history.

Miracle Flakes
Jon Acuff said, "I Believe in a miracle, I just don't believe it fits in a plan." In sales we wish for a miracle. If it was a good month we hope miraculously that the good fortune will continue. If it was a bad month, we hope for a miracle that somehow things will turn. You need a plan not a miracle because in working that plan you'll have miracle flakes along the way but it still takes the effort of working and reworking your plan.

When asked, most of us think that we're not creative. Because when we hear the word "creativity" we think of painting, carving pumpkins, & drawing..even if you can't do any of that, you are creative.
