This email is difficult to write, but it contains an important message that I hope helps you.
The worst periods of my life were when I went through my divorce and immediately after that. I was an absolute wreck.
Anyone who thinks depression isn’t real and that a truly depressed person should “snap out of it” doesn’t know what they’re talking about and should keep their mouth shut. I know how it feels; I was in the thick of it.
Until that point, every seminar I conducted, whether my first ones for magicians to seminars for entrepreneurs, had made money. Then, the year before the whole divorce thing, I had my most successful seminar ever, netting nearly 200K with an audience of fewer than 100 people.
I was good at creating events that made a significant profit, and the net grew from one event to the next…until the divorce.
I did an event for the first time, and it lost money. And then another and another – all with net losses. Since seminars represented a good portion of my income at that time, I was now under emotional and financial stress. It was an ugly spiral.
Did I somehow forget the techniques and strategies for putting on events that generated a profit? Did I forget how to sell from the stage?
What changed was my thinking because of the emotional state I was experiencing. Of course, your emotional state affects your thinking, which affects your results. But, it’s also your thinking that affects your emotional state.
I’m not a doctor, so I’m not going deep on this, but how you think can alter your body’s chemical composition, which, in turn, affects how you feel and the results you achieve.
You can change your reality by upgrading your thinking around selling and making DEEnero.
This stuff is not “Sales 101” level, but for the person striving to maximize every opportunity they have, it’s equally, if not more important, than learning techniques. So I’m conducting a live masterclass on Monday, May 2 at 4:00 PM ET exclusively for my Inner Sanctum VIPs.
If you’d like to join me for “SALES THINK: How To Close More Sales By Upgrading Your Inner Game” and receive the recordings, and you’re not yet an Inner Sanctum VIP, please go here to join us.
Kick butt, make mucho DEEnero!
Dave “Happy To Be Happy” Dee
P.S. If you are experiencing depression, please seek professional help. I fought it for the longest time, thinking I could work through it independently. I was wrong. Call someone today. You are worth it, my friend.
