Overcoming Murphy's Law

Just recently I was invited to speak at the Rotary Club at the Powerhouse, Windows on the River. Unfortunately murphy's law was operating and in full force. Nothing was going right. Even though I had been there before I left the house very early giving myself an extra hour and fifteen minutes to get there for a trip that takes ten minutes.

Good thing. I knew I had to make sure things were set up for the presentation. Just as I reached my destination, ( or almost), I came upon a detour sign. At this point I had to find a different route and ultimately I was re-routed through the city for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, which was a little nerve wracking, even though I was about 500 feet from my intended destination.

I finally arrived still with plenty of time and after looking at the stage I saw that I would be standing at a podium with a microphone attached. This is not for me I thought. This would limit my mobility and give me a feeling of being restrained. Good thing for me I brought my own equipment including my wireless microphone. I clicked the on button the power pack for the mic and soon discovered that the battery was weak and I would not be able to use it. Wow! I had meant to check that battery earlier in the week. Oh well too late now.

The technical guy showed up and some how I was not able to get a connection from my lap to top the LCD projector and of course the audience would not be able to see my presentation on the screen. Oh boy. Here we go I thought. He made some adjustments and more adjustments for about 15 minutes mean while the program is starting. Good thing I was not going to be the first one up to speak. I immediately thought about taking some notes from the power point presentation and taking them to the podium with me. The tech guy finally made the connection great. Great I thought. What a relief.

However during my presentation I reached a point where my writing was so tiny I could not read it. I did not have this problem the last time I gave my presentation because I was much closer to the screen because I had my wireless mic which allowed me to roam around.

Immediately after my presentation I thought about all the obstacles that stood before: finding a new direction; lap top not functioning; portions of the presentation not legible; mic not working, not to mention all the different ways I could have communicated my presentation.

For the most part I was able to keep my composure, and nevertheless I got through it and got a chance to meet some great people. Sometimes we have to overcome murphys law while pursing success.
Well that's all for now.

To Your Great Success.

Rise When We Fall

One, Two , Three.... Hello!? What am I doing? I am counting someone out. You see I'm a referee (just pretending) and I am officiating tonight's heavyweight championship fight. One competitor has just knocked his opponent down. So as the referee it’s my job to start counting. I guess you can say that I am counting him out.

Is he out cold? I don't know yet. What I do know is when I reach ten, if he has not gotten to his feet he loses, and this contest is over.

Four, Five, Six..........

Well, I suppose I can take some time between counting and speak with you. Have you ever been to a boxing match? I haven't. However I have watched quite a few on T.V. If you have ever seen one of the fighters get knocked down, look over into his corner where his trainer, manager and cut man is. They are all yelling get up!! Get up!! Get up!!

They know if the boxer is not severely hurt that once he rises he has a chance to compete once again and maybe even win the boxing match. Have you ever fallen and somebody implored you to get up!! Get up!!! Get over it!! Go on with your life! Or maybe they just started counting you out.

Every so often we need those words of encouragement that keep us going when we fall down in life. Maybe "get over it" isn't the exact words of encouragement we were looking for but sometimes that's what we need. It shocks us back to our senses and helps us to find our way back to reality.

We all need someone to say get up!! get up!! "I am counting on you". I have complete faith and confidence in you. Get up, because we need you. Don't we need to hear that when we are not at our best and we feel like we are ready to toss in the towel?

There is something to be learned from boxer's and their strategy. There is a strategy involved even when they are getting up. We have to be careful that we don't get up too quickly otherwise we could walk into the same situation or, in the case of a boxer, the same punch. Oft times it's a very good idea to take an assessment of what knocked us down. Was it a good friend, some debt, a family member, or our jobs? We can get knocked down by a number of things.

As I said even when getting up boxers utilize a strategy. Sometimes the manager will tell his fighter to stay down if he feels it will be detrimental to his health to get up, and try to continue fighting. That's says we have to know when something is not working and when it's time to go in another direction. No sense in beating our head against a wall.

Other times a trainer will tell his fighter to stay down until the referee gets to the count of 7 or 8.

When a fighter has been knocked down they will stay down as long as possible to give themselves a chance to clear their head. How about you? Have you ever had a failed business, or career, or job or relationship and you jumped to your feet too quickly and didn't give yourself time to clear your head... only to get knocked down again.

Seven, Eight.......

Also you have to make sure you have the right team in place. The right trainer, coach, mentor, manager, or people that are going to act in your best interest and help you to achieve those goals in life you are aspiring to. It's so important to have those at your side who will give you the right instruction and be truthful even though it's uncomfortable, and not send you back into a situation that will be detrimental to your career and block you from pursuing your dreams in life.

There is an old boxing joke that goes something like this: A fighter gets knocked down and barely makes it back to his corner. He tells the trainer I'm a little dizzy and now I see three guys in the ring instead of just my opponent. The trainer tells him not to worry about it, just hit the guy in the middle. Who's in your corner? Who's on your team? Are you receiving correct instruction?

Nine, Ten....

Oh Boy! I made it to the count of ten. Did you make it to your feet before I got to ten. Did I count you out? What problem or situation were you facing that knocked you down? Did you get up too fast? Did you take an assessment of the situation and re-evaluate a new game plan.?

Hey you better take it easy. Are you okay? Is everything alright? Are you ready to give it another shot? Good!! Then by all means get up!! Get up!! Get up!! Come on now we are counting on you to take the fight to another level.

Courage Despite The Fear

We all have a fear of something. There are people who go through life with a fear of this and a fear of that. Fear is a paralyzing state. I was reading a book, "Born to Win" by Lewis Timberlake, a motivational speaker, and there was a quote that said, "Fear is a dark room where negatives are developed."

Doesn't that sound right? Imagine a closed in damp, dirty, dark, musty closet where fear resides. What can possibly come from a situation like that except fear. Fear is not knowing what lies ahead. When our way seems dark and we are not sure which direction we should take there is a sense of dread and fear. Fear is generated when we are not familiar with our surroundings

If we make an attempt to journey outside of our comfort zones then fear sets in, because we are not accustomed to the new environment. We are challenged to do something new and take some risks and give up our old habits and old ways of thinking. Can this possibly, maybe set us up for failure? Who wants to fail? Right? Ah just as I thought, the fear of failure.

I also heard someone say we were born with two fears; the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears are learned. Hmm? Can we unlearn those fears?

Consider this poem, by either Marianne Willamson and Nelson Mandela. I am not sure who the originator is, but I believe it to be Marianne Williamson. Nevertheless the short version is, "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

What an awesome statement. We all have a fear of the great success we can become if we step out of the shadows of mediocrity and shed the ranks of obscurity, and move beyond the confines of our comfort zone and push fear aside.

When we actually get a picture of who we are and what we can become it frightens us. So we sabotage our success with unbelief, negative thoughts, and we embrace our comfort zone.

What do you fear? What's holding you back? Are you in a dark room watching all the negatives develop? Are you afraid of who you are and what you can become? Does fear have you in it's icy grip?

If so I would say it's time to move up and out, past the comfort zone. It's time to move on to pursue your greatness and fulfill your destiny. It's time to face your fears and unlock your potential.

Be of good courage. Courage, I have heard, is not the absence of fear but the ability to act despite the fear. Can't get past the fear? Then encourage yourself. Your words have power.

Say good things to yourself. Say, "You Can Do It", Come on, let's go, Say things that get you motivated and excited. Is there a motivating and uplifting song you can listen to? An abundance of wealth is waiting for you on the other side of fear.

There are rich and wealthy relationships beckoning to you ; rich and wealthy family relations; rich and wealthy social life; rich and wealthy spiritual awareness; rich and wealthy
intellectual development; rich and wealthy health and hapiness; and a rich and wealthy bank account.

Think of the awesome reasons that you are pursuing your great dreams. Think of what you want to accomplish.

Now I can say, Come on, You Can Do It! It's time to move. It's Time To go forth and make things happen. Nothing can stop you.

Foundations of Success

It occurred to me that the starting point of all success is a solid foundation. Before you can achieve an extraordinary level of success you must be clear about what you are trying to accomplish, in other words you must establish your purpose.

We all have a specific purpose or a definitive thing we are to accomplish in this life. Once you understand your purpose you are in line to achieve greatness. Having purpose gives you a reason to get up in the morning - It creates energy, excitement, enthusiasm, passion, direction, and drive. You get the feeling that you can accomplish the impossible. And the truth be told you can!

I also noticed that a lot of students graduate not knowing there purpose - therefore they go from job to job, business to business, and activity to activity. I like to call it aimless drifting. They never achieve the great results and accomplishments they were destined for.
An understanding of your purpose unlocks the creative genius inside you then establish a burning desire to achieve your goals because you are operating within the confines of your purpose.

You are then contributing to society in a beneficial way and you are having fun. And it's my purpose to help those in the pursuit of great success to establish a solid foundation and build from there and ultimately go on to greatness.

The Power Of The Subconscious Mind

About ten years ago I discovered the great power of the subconscious mind. I stumbled upon it by accident. I had gone to a local gym to play a pick up game of basketball. Now I have to tell you I am a very super competitive individual. However on this particular day I really did not feel like being competitive. My main objective was to play a couple of games and get some excercise and just have some fun.

We were playing a half court game. The team that reached 12 points first won. Each basket counted as one point. My team consisted of 4 players as did the other team. As I mentioned earlier I did not feel like being really competitive and apparently everyone else on my team felt the same way, because before long the score was 9 to 3 in favor of our opponents. That's when the game took a strange turn. When the other team scored their 9th point one of their team members yelled out .... NEXT!!!!

What's meant by this is the winning team is telling the next team on the sidelines to warm up and get ready because for all practical purposes this game is over. It's really a sign of disrespect to the team that is still on the court, even though they are losing. I took offense to that. I remember thinking these thoughts immediately afterwards...."We will not lose this game". Suddenly I increased the intensity in my own game and my teammates sensed this new level of intensity.
I played harder and they played harder. Eventually the game ended and we won by a score of 12 to 10. After that game I really did not give it much thought. The only thing I know is that we increased our intensity and began to play the game at a higher level.

But there was more to it than that. I now can sit back and reflect on how I was feeling. After I began to think those thoughts..."We will not lose this game", there was absolutely no doubt in my mind. There was no time sit back and rationalize a game plan. I had no specific plan of action on how we were going to win that game.

I merely sent to my subconscious mind an unquestioned belief backed by supercharged emotion and my subconscious mind mapped out the game plan, for the victory. Your thoughts are things and they form the basis for what you become and what you do.
Never underestimate the power of your subconscious mind. Once you send an unquestioned command to the subconscious mind backed by a state of belief mixed with faith and charged with emotion the subconscious goes to work to make it come true. It begans to work even while you are sleep. It never rests until that goal is realized.

Tap into the power of your subconscious mind to reach your goals in 2007 and become the success you were destined to become. Make your massive fortune a reality.

To Your Great Success.

Bank sales training - Product Knowledge

The first line of attack
Within every organization you have a certain group of associates who are on the front line and they ultimately become the first line of defense. In other words they determine the level of success your organization is going to experience while trying to accomplish its mission. At restaurants it’s the cashiers or the employee handling the drive through window.

At a grocery store it’s the clerks and the cashiers. Within a car dealership it’s the salesman. This same principle or concept applies for tellers at a bank. They set the stage for on going relationships with customers and future transactions which ultimately translate into cash. That’s why it’s so important to establish rapport by delivering world class customer service. Actually nothing else should be acceptable. If you have two establishments and both have identical products it’s the customer service received that can sway their decision to buy or not. This is what determines if them will frequent your organization or your competitors.

Remember a dissatisfied customer may not always voice their opinion they just won’t return to your establishment to do business. Not only that they will tell everyone they know about the displeasure they experienced.

If a teller is not giving outstanding customer service or becomes rude with a customer there is a good chance you may lose that customer to a competitor. Or they will never purchase another product from your organization even if they need it. This definitely affects the bottom line. Or along the same lines what if the tellers are not asking probing questions that will determine the needs of customers which can help bring in revenue for the bank.

What if rapport is not being established. Once needs are determined the correct product can be offered to your customers. The more of your products and services that a customer has the least likely they are to leave your bank. That’s why it is so important to maximize every single opportunity.

Customers should come to depend on you as their banker or consultant who has their needs and best interest at heart. If a customer determines that you’re looking out for their best interest they will be more likely to do all their banking with you. Some where down the line this can lead to as many as three or four different products that a customer has with your bank. And that’s the ultimate goal.

It’s not the Tellers responsibility to sale a product to the customer, but they must make the connection, establish rapport through probing questions, determine a need and refer the customer to the platform staff for the actual sell. Therefore it does require that they have some basic product knowledge. And it all starts with a great attitude accompanied with a great smile. If your staff of tellers have a great attitude half the battle is won. A great attitude can do more for referrals than you can imagine. Some customers will be referred even if they don’t have a need for a product based on a tellers superior attitude, ( Of course we always want to do the right thing and it’s up to the platform staff to determine if a need does in fact exist) .
So it starts with a great attitude which comes with a great smile.

When you put the customer at ease with your superior attitude it is far easier to establish rapport. Customers will more than likely want to be converse with you. They will look at you as someone that can be trusted. This opens the door to determine the customers needs.
So now it’s time to recognize the customers needs . How do we that? They always give clues. Just listen to the customer and they will tell you in so many words what product or service they need.
Be on the lookout for customer needs --- they always give clues.

Example: customer: My checking account is overdrawn again ---- answer: offer the over draft protection. The first time you use it it will pay for itself. Let me get someone to speak with you further.

Example 2: customer ---- these bills are keeping me from enjoying life I have to mail ten checks per month ----answer: offer the home equity line of credit. Mr. Johnson we can offer you the home equity line of credit and consolidate all your debts. At the very least we can offer a credit card with a promotional rate which can save the customer money on one of the credit cards at least. Perhaps we can refinance the first mortgage and consolidate everything. How about the online banking service. This will save the customer time and money. No longer will the customer have to write out checks.

Example 3: customer: My mortgage payments are too high so is the interest rate. Answer: offer to refinance the first mortgage and the customer may want some cash as well --- or maybe there are some other bills to consolidate.

Example: 4 customer: I just retired. CSR: How are you going to handle your 401k or retirement money.
Those were just some of the many examples of how customers give us clues to their needs.
When you talk to your customers today what needs can you uncover.

This will serve to increase your product offering per customer.
Now lets talk abut Customer Relationship Management and some key statistics. Consider these facts.

Customer Relationship Management is important because the more products and services
from your bank that a customer has the more likely they are to stay with your bank.

A customer with four of a banks products and services is more likely to stay with that bank
than if they only had one product or service.

That's why it is so important to continuously engage the customer to see if another need

So you can see why it is critical to build those relationships and increase your product offering per customer.

Put your game plan into place:

It starts with a superior attitude accompanied with a smile.
You have to have the rightAttitude
You need basic Skills in place
Knowledge ( a basic knowledge of the products and services offered)

How do you get more referrals

Getting those referrals
Be enthusiastic and sincere
Believe in the products
Know that you are truly helping your customers

So as a teller it’s always a good idea to stay mentally sharp so that you will be able to recognize the needs of the customers which puts you in a position to respond to the customers needs and make recommendations for the customers .And finally you are able to refer the customer to the appropriate platform staff for the sell.

Recognizing the customer needs always centers around several key items. First the customer has a problem that needs to be solved. We live in a microwave society people want things done better and faster so there is definitely a need for convenience. What product or service can you think of that provides convenience for the customer.

Practically every customer has a need to save money whether it be in a checking, savings, CD, IRA or whatever type of savings vehicle you can think of.
Also customers have a need to borrow money. We live in a credit based society therefore we use credit to finance large ticket items like homes, cars, boats, RV’s, vacation home, vacations, consolidation of debts etc.

During your encounter with customers it’s a good idea to actively listen for the words that can trigger a need.

After recognizing the need you want to relay the features and benefits to the customers. Always mention the benefit that is most important to the customer. Then try to bring or mention the other benefits that the customer will derive satisfaction from. The more benefits you can give the customer the better, of course you don’t want to overload and overwhelm them.

Now you want to put yourself into the equation. Show how you understand the problem and how you can help provide a solution . Use phrases that show you are concerned about the customers problem and you are ready to help.

Example: It looks like you will need help consolidating those debts.
Or, I can help you get that 401k moved over into an IRA.

Benefits Vs. Features
Credit card with a promotional apr Feature --- This card will save you money
Home equity line of credit $10k ---- feature ---- saves money with low Apr --- tax write off ---
Save time by consolidating.
A good selling point is to point out the benefits. Stressing the benefits help you to relate to
The customers needs better.

Send the customer to the platform.
Here are some good phrases to use when you send a customer to the platform:
Example: Based on what you have told me I think it is very important for you to speak with John or Marilyn they are the experts for that particular product. Always build the credibility of your team members. O r this is a great idea…. Let me get someone for you to speak to.

Role play with someone. Pretend you are the teller in a situation then switch it around and be the customer.

Objections -
1. If there are objections you may have to clarify some other things with the customer
2. You may have to provide more information
3. Don’t take rejection personal
4. Stress the benefits
Common Objections:
Objection: I don’t need any more credit

I don’t want to pay any fees

I keep my savings and checking accounts
At another bank.

I don’t have the time --
I don’t think I will qualify

Overcome the objections:
1. First acknowledge you heard the objection
2. Clarify the objection --- this may call for you to paraphrase ---
3. Then take action with the referral

I understand how you feel Mr. Johnson…..
Many of my customers felt the same way…
However, after trying it out, they found that they could save a lot of time
Feel Felt Found.

Role play to overcome objections
Put together an action plan to put the information into action.
Celebrate your success.

All of these activities help to build wealth and increase profits and revenue with your bank.

Get going and follow the tracks to success. You owe it to yourself to get a life coach that will help you wipe out the deficit between where you are and where you want to go. A coach will hold you accountable and help steer you in the direction of your dreams. To Your Great Success Mel Richardson- CEO VisionStar Enterprises P.O.

The Amazing Power Of Visualization

A runner walks out to the track. He begins to stretch and warm up in anticipation of the race that’s about to unfold. He takes some deep breaths to relax himself and oxygenate the blood. Now he positions himself in the starting blocks to make sure he has maximum acceleration. The hands spaced appropriately on the track. He rocks back and forth to feel what it is like to propel himself out of the starting blocks. A few mock take offs are done which leads to a sprint equal to about 60% of his normal race speed. Everything must be concise and precise. He walks back to the starting blocks and rehearses this ritual all over again.

Now the race official appears and asks all the participants to line up in their appropriate starting position. He barks out the command, “Runners on your mark, Get set! Then the gun sounds! The runner takes off down the track, with all the other participants, careful to keep perfect form. He is aware of every step. He sees his competitors closing fast on his left and right. Now he goes into overdrive and really begins to accelerate down the track and he is quickly coming to the finish line and it’s a very close race, neck and neck, he and several competitors. At the very last instant he sticks his head out over the finish line and wins by a nose.

Cameras are flashing, the other runners come over to congratulate him and he begins his victory lap excited about the feat he has just accomplished. Ah! Now it’s time for the real race to take place. You see the aforementioned scenario only took place in his mind. He simply visualized what he wanted to accomplish.

This is the procedure so many of the most successful and great individuals follow in preparation of the event or activity they are trying to accomplish. They visualize it in their minds first. It is their uncanny ability to mediate and see clearly in their minds the entire event unfold just as they want it to. Before anything can be accomplished in the physical realm it first comes into existence as a thought or image.

Once a thing or event is visualized and one is in a state of total belief the subconscious mind works day and night to make it a reality. This is one of the marvels of the magnificent human mind. It has the ability to bring things into existence which sometimes can seem like an impossibility.

The mind makes them possible. This amazing power works no matter what it is one is trying to accomplish. An employee in the lower ranks of an organization might visualize himself as an executive of that same organization.

P.S. It's time to visualize your way to success

Goal Setting - The Gateway To Success

Are you aware that only 3% of the world's population have written goals?
And they are, by far, the most successful people in the world.

When you sit down and take the time to actually write out your goals you set in motion mechanisms which you are not even aware of. What am I talking about? Your subconscious mind goes to work to help you fulfill your goals. It never rests until you arrive at your written destination.

As long you are passionate and have a burning desire to achieve your goals.

Also you goals should consist of these eight elements as outlined by Lewis Timberlake.

Number 1. Written

Your goals have to be written. Writing out your goals have you establish clarity about what you are trying to accomplish. You establish a road map on how you are going to get from A to Z. Don't miss this last point. When you write out your goals something happens within the subconscious mind that causes you to react and bring those things into existence --- It's almost like a self programming.

Number 2. Personal

Your goals have to be personal. I cannot set goals for you nor can you set goals for me. They have to be things that you want to achieve and accomplish. When the obstacles come in the pursuit of your goals and they will you are more likely to continue on and perservere if they are your own goals. If someone else sets the goals for you chances are you will give up at the first sign of trouble.

Number 3. Continual

The goal setting process is a continual process. You should always set goals. Once you hit one goal you move on to the next and the next. Certainly there will be times when you have to make ammendments and adjustments, but you still continue on with the goal setting process, hitting one after the other.

Number 4. Encompassing.

Your goals should cover all six areas of your life which include the following:

  1. Mental
  2. Physical
  3. Social
  4. Spiritual
  5. Career
  6. Family

This helps you to establish a balanced stratgegy.

Number 5. Realistic/Believable.

When you set your goals they should be realistic and believable. You

have to truly believe that you are going to be able to accomplish the things you set out to do. They have to be realistic. If you are working as a cook at a fast food restaurant and you want to become an engineer in 6 months. Well most likely that is not going to happen. It doesn't mean it can never happen, you just need to make that a long term goal.

Number 6. Specific

You need to make your goals as specific as possible with as much detail and establish a deadline for their accomplishment.

Number 7. Compatible

You should never have a goal in one area of your life that's

incompatible with another area.

Number 8. Workable

After everything has been said and done you finally need a workable plan of action. You need to take action.

And finally remember this quote by Dr. Benjamin Mays.

It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life

does not lie in not reaching your goal.

The tragedy lies in not having a goal to reach for.

It is not a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled.

It is a calamity not to dream.

It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your idea.

But it is a disaster to have no idea to capture.

It is not a disgrace to be unable to reach the stars but

it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for.

-----Dr. Benjamin Mays
