Do you know what selling really is? It is transferring your belief to someone else. You make them believe what you believe. For instance take the latest ad on television about wrinkle cream. If they claim it will make you look 10 years younger, someone will believe it and buy it based of that. Keyword: belief.
It's like an alternate reality. Think about it. I was a member of the UPC for many years. A lot of members do not have televisions. They don't BELIEVE in having them. Does that make television any less real? No. It is simply that their reality is different than most other realities.
Another example. What about people who buy into the crap on the Internet: you too can make $1000s in two hours per day! Spend $4000 today to find out how! That is transferring one belief on to another person (albeit a desperate person).
So what kind of person should you market your business opportunity toward? Someone who lives in a similar reality. You couldn't market a reality to show to a hardcore UPCer. Just like I said in another post - you can't say the wrong thing to the right person and you can't say the right thing to the WRONG person.
This is going to sound totally stupid. I know it is...believe me. I realize I sound bat shit crazy. Believe you are successful. Sounds stupid from a born alpha female. Yet I have watched and coached others to become alpha personalities. The first step is the belief that you can succeed. If you keep telling yourself you are a failure, you are a failure. I spent my entire childhood being told by my father I would never amount to anything. Just to spite him, I started college in my late 20s and finished in three years at the top of the class...while I was married...and raising two little kids. He was dead by then, but it didn't matter to me. It was like a cosmic screw you.
Don't try to get successful before you act successful. Don't start hawking your opportunity to every person you pass (remember what we said about targeting?) until you start acting like a success. When you start acting like a success, your confidence will come up and people will want to follow you. People want a good leader that knows what in the hell they are doing.

Success is the best revenge!
