Words of wisdom from the Wolf of Wall Street
Jordan Belfort’s life has been a rollercoaster ride of extreme highs and lows, starting with his early display of entrepreneurial spirit, followed by bankruptcy at 25, ditching medical school after one day, and ultimately finding immense success as a stockbroker.
He kicked off his speech with a captivating story from his early days as a door-to-door meat and seafood salesman, which led him to embark on his entrepreneurial journey and establish his own business. He distilled the essence of salesmanship into this critical lesson:
At the highest level, what sales really is about is the transference of emotion. The emotion we’re transferring is certainty.
Knowing this did not save him from making all of the critical errors so many fresh entrepreneurs are prone to commit. He expanded his first business too aggressively, which came crashing down at the turn of Winter and the end of BBQ season. This turn of events forced him to file for bankruptcy.
As he put it, what kept him from returning to dentistry school – which he had already quit after a day once told by the dean that dentistry is not the place to be to make a lot of money – was overcoming his limiting beliefs, always bound to spring up after a failed venture.
Your salespeople are held down by limiting beliefs, so it is not enough to teach your people about closing the deal,” he beckoned to the audience, “but also winning the personal, inner games happening in their head.
There are four primary inner challenges the salesman needs to overcome:
- State – the day-to-day control of your emotions, in the continuous struggle of transferring certainty during those key moments;
- Beliefs – your opinion of yourself, which left unchecked can become limiting beliefs poisoning your capability at greatness, and must be replaced by empowering thoughts;
- Vision – that unshakeable trust in yourself knowing where you want to see yourself in 5 years, your target and why it matters to you, which you seek out with laser-guided precision without getting tunnel-vision and missing out on opportunities;
- Standards – how do you determine yourself as ‘successful’? Is it a measure of obtained wealth? Freedom to live life as comfortably or as daringly as possible?
Belfort continued by extolling the universal law of attraction:
What you focus on, you move towards, a universal law. What you focus on you attract into your life. But you don’t do that from the couch. You must move towards what you’re focusing on, and attract it like the magnet attracts the iron when it moves close enough.
At the end of the day, it is also important to whet your vision with a good understanding of your personal standards for success. Obtaining what you must have versus what you feel you should have.
“What often happens in life is you get what you must have, but not what you feel you should have. That’s when personal standards are at their highest, but planning for that vision is lacking.”
Overcoming these internal mind games is just the first step. They don’t account for playing the business game out in the world with the other players. They also don’t end with success. Learning how to succeed is one leg of the journey, but succeeding wildly, is another one entirely. What do you do when everything is going right?
There’s being good at sales and being good at scaling. Scaling up is not accidental. There are a number of rules, and you’ll suffer if you don’t know them.
