Growth to Freedom™ - Transform Your Life, Business, and Relationships with Clarity, Confidence, and Direction

Freedom only happens when you are driven by purpose. As one of my friends Joe Polish (of Genius Network) says: “… if you want a breakthrough, you’ve got to break something…” The Growth to Freedom™ Show helps you transform your life in business and in relationships. It’s a fresh mix of strategy, resources, and entertainment that guides you to create the personal and business breakthroughs you need. Your success and freedom will only grow to the extent you do, and the The Growth to Freedom™ Show will help you find clarity, confidence, and direction. Two weeks after my son was born in 2007, I found myself in a hospital for four days with a serious heart problem. The fact is, I had let my health go to the extent that my body gave out. It was a major wakeup call. That experience opened a new door of awareness for me. I came to realize that if I wanted something different, I needed to do something different. If I wanted something better, I needed to do it better. We’re living at one of the most exciting times in history and I believe you can have freedom on your terms. You can have it all, if you’re willing to take the necessary steps. It’s not easy. I’ve certainly made my share of mistakes and I want to help you avoid those on your own journey. This show was born as part of my process and was inspired by Joe Polish, Genius Network, and many mentors I’m also fortunate to call friends. It doesn’t matter what your background is or where you’ve been: It only matters that you want to grow.Whatever your definition of success, I will challenge, guide, and connect you to some of the best leaders and experts in the world today. Now is your time - you deserve it! The catalyst for greatness is inside of you, and it starts now with Growth to Freedom! Insights and strategy from experts like - T Harv Eker, Craig Ballantyne, Dan Sullivan, Strategic Coach, Genius Network Joe Polish, and more (what about that?) - these aren’t the experts I have interviewed, however excerpts from their ideas.

What would happen if you could double the amount of sales you made - with the same number of leads? What would that mean to you, your family, and your company?

More importantly, what would that mean for your customers?

I used to think that sales was difficult. At times I thought to be successful at sales, I’d have to be pushy or overbearing. However, once I began studying the true nature of sales and understanding that it’s about helping people and adding value to their lives, sales has become something I love to do.

You can improve your ability to influence, persuade and sell - and today I’m going to show you how.

Truth be told, I didn’t invent any of this. This episode features insights from the study and trial and error over the last 22 years. In this episode I reveal a relatively simple multi-step process you can put in place to consistently generate more sales.

You’ve got to understand the sales process before you can be good at it.

Every sales presentation is made up of a number of “sections or steps.”

What are those sections?

The introduction, The Why, The Walk Through, The Price, The Guarantee, Testimonials, and The Ask.

Each step leads the candidate from interest to commitment.

It all starts with great preparation. That means you’ve got to do your homework before you go to the sales appointment. What are the prospect’s needs and desires? What are the risks they’d be taking by using your solution? How can you answer each of those risks effectively and meet their needs and desires?

Doing your homework up front and anticipating their needs will give you a competitive advantage. It gives you the tools to ask the right questions to help get them to like, trust, and respect you - to shift from a sales pest to welcome guest; to position you as a trusted, knowledgeable advisor.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Dan’s welcome to you and the introduction to today’s show; [0:33]
  • The E.L.F. sales approach and how you can model it; [0:42]
  • What IS sales? [1:15]
  • What’s at stake? What would happen if your sales quotient increased? [4:44]
  • 7 Steps to More Sales; The introduction: what is it? [6:16]
  • The Why: Why you are talking to them (preparation is key here); [7:20]
  • The Walk Through: How to walk through your services with a prospect; [12:16]
  • Price: How to position your product and service to be free; [13:30]
  • Guarantee: The way you make it an irresistible offer; [16:07]
  • Testimonials: Social proof to demonstrate your competence; [18:00]
  • Questions: Answering the responses your prospect has; [19:10]

Are you playing full out or are you hiding out?

Playing full out is confidence in who you are and what unique contribution you bring to your industry and the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re providing the same type of things to your niche as others, what matters is YOUR unique approach or spin on the subject. When you get clear on that, you’re able to play full out, with abandon, and make your maximum contribution. It’s your magic that makes it work…

“You can still the idea, but you can’t still the magic”. -Walt Disney

On the other hand, hiding out is what many of us do when we’re afraid, discouraged, or in a down state.

What are we afraid of? Many times it’s dealing with doubt around: “What if I’m not good enough? What if I fail? What if the resources I have are not adequate?”

When we allow those questions to saddle us with fear we play small, we hide out, and miss the opportunity to contribute at our very best!

This episode is aimed to help you ask the questions that can help you identify where you’re at - whether you’re hiding out or playing full out, and what to do to move yourself forward in confidence, certainty, and clarity.

The main thing holding you back is: YOU and The first progress starts by telling the truth.

What would it be worth to you if you could conquer the voices of doubt… or the voice that may tell you you’re not good enough?

My guest on today’s episode is Dr. Cristy Lopez and she’s going to share the P.E.A.C.E. process to mindfulness and living in the present - and what that means for you is more growth, significance, and impact.

Too often we spend the bulk of our energy focusing on things that are external to us, things that are outside our control. Things like other people, situations, worries and fears. When we do that we’re using our most precious commodities, time and energy, to lead ourselves down a path that is not only unhelpful, but also destructive.

Today Dr. Cristy Lopez shows us what we can do to get our mind off the things that we can’t control by learning to live mindfully in the present moment, even if that moment is something we’d define as “bad.”

It is what it is. That’s not such a bad way of looking at life.

She does that by sharing her “P.E.A.C.E.” approach to mindfulness. Those letters stand for - Physiology, emotions, actions, cognition, and extrasensory - and she walks us through each of those areas, explaining what it means and it’s vital that you learn how to put them into practice to help set you free from negative or limiting thought patterns and also to set you up for greater things in the future.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Acceptance VS Settling, Mindfulness and more (Introduction); [0:33]
  • Why I feel this is a very important distinction to make in your life; [1:07]
  • What do I mean, acceptance VS settling? [2:07]
  • How perfectionism or “I’m not good enough” holds you back; [3:50]
  • Using gratitude to battle mediocrity and perfectionism; [6:10]
  • What IS mindfulness? [8:48]
  • Why “It is what it is” - is a great mindset (acceptance); [10:56]
  • Practices to stay more in the present and in a place of acceptance; [12:28]
  • Why Dr. Lopez recommends using meditation to be more present; [13:36]
  • Using the PEACE process of mindfulness: Physiology, emotions, actions, cognition, and extrasensory; [14:30]
  • Practices I use each day to remain present and mindful; [17:51]
  • How you can receive my free gift to you; [20:05]

What would happen if you were able to emotionally detach from the outcomes of any situation? What’s the difference between detachment and disconnection?

Think about it. How often are you invested personally in the response someone gives you (personally or professionally)? Or how often have you been attached to the outcome of a sales presentation or meeting?

Here’s the truth… If you’re too focused on the outcomes you’ll find yourself jump-frogging from one thing to another in a vain effort to gain false self acceptance and recognition.

Today’s episode is a conversation I had with my friend, Dr. Cristy Lopez about the importance of detachment. Frankly, it’s something I’ve had a hard time with over the years and with a shift in focus, you will get greater confidence, peace, and clarity and what that means is you can stay more in the present moment - enjoying the things that matter!

This can help you in powerful ways if you apply it, so I invite you to listen, take notes, and take action on what you learn.

If you put your focus on personal growth and contribution, things change dramatically.

What if you were able to focus on being your BEST YOU? What would happen if you focused on contribution in everything you do with your family, community, church, and work?

Dr. Cristy Lopez says that when you can make that mindset shift you’ll find yourself living a more centered, present life in the moments of every day and your stress and anxiety levels will diminish. That’s because you’ll be working on the things that you can change rather than investing your emotional energy and focus in things that you can’t change.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • Intro to the show - Dr Cristy Lopez; [0:33]
  • Why life is a game of adjustments, just like sports; [2:20]
  • What is a healthy way to think of “detachment?” [3:20]
  • What it means to be detached from that perfect outcome; [4:10]
  • How to detach from outcomes properly when focusing on goals; [5:30]
  • Why it’s poison to live by a checklist of performance; [7:48]
  • Better ways to trigger the right responses; [9:45]
  • The importance of progress and contribution in becoming detached from outcomes; [11:10]
  • Why you need to understand the difference from detachment and disconnection; [15:00]
  • How people can use adversity to drive them forward; [17:09]
  • The role anger can sometimes play in fueling positive progress; [17:45]
  • Action steps to take; [19:44]
