715. Pressure Is An Obligation Before It's A Privilege.

They say, "Pressure is a privilege," but before it is a privilege, it must first be an obligation, and before it's an obligation, you've got to stop making it an option. 

A majority of your successes were when you had no other option. 

Today on The Sales Life, instead of looking at hard things as an option to do or not do, make it an obligation and do.

They say pressure is a privilege, but before it's a privilege, it's gotta be an obligation today on the sales life, why making pressure and obligation will bring you the benefits of success? This is the sales life. I'm your host Marsh Buice and I created the sales life because I believe the number one skill that you need in life to embrace uncertainty, handle the adversity and never settle. Is the ability to sell, but you don't have to be in sales to learn how to sell. I'll take the skills that I've learned in the sales profession, and I'll show you how I've applied these to every area of my life and how you can too.

Would you share this with others on your social with the hashtag TSL? This will help support and grow the show. They say pressure is a privilege, but before it's a privilege, it's gotta be an obligation for you. And before it's an obligation, it's an option. When you're in the cross heirs of pressure, then you have the choice to do or not do. And if the consequences are possible, failure, rejection, and embarrassment. Obviously we make the choice to not do. And we just hope that it'll somehow fix itself or it'll go away or someone else will go before us and take the lick before we go. And then we could just step over their body and keep going. But see if you do that for a couple of decades, avoidance becomes a way of life. This is why I say confrontation in a productive way is so important in your life. You've gotta be able to confront the things. So you gotta make pressure an obligation, the masses making an option, the few, make it an obligation, even though it's not that you don't feel the fear of losing. Of course you think about all those things, but yet, because it's an obligation. And it's no longer an option. You go at it. You do it anyway. When you make pressure and obligation, there are three benefits. Number one, it creates a new narrative. See when you keep pressure as an option, then the only narrative that you have to draw upon every single day are the times that you failed that you quit, that you messed up big time. So if that's the only narrative that you have, how do you expect to have different results when you make pressure and obligation? No longer an option. Now it's gonna create a new narrative. It gives you a new storyline and it starts pushing down all of those old stories of when you quit, when you failed, when you made a fool of yourself it starts pushing all those stories down and the new narrative rises up. Which brings me to my second point. Now that pressure is an obligation and no longer an option. And because I've created a new narrative. Now I'm building a memory bank. So when hardship comes again, I've got something to remind myself that I've done hard sh🤬t before. And I can do hard sh*t once again, this is what's called experience, which brings me to my third point. Now that I have experience. Now it makes me more relatable with others. See people notice what you're doing, they notice that you step forward and you, take things on when others won't. It like perpetuates, it just gets stronger and stronger. And then you become that go-to person. This is how people gravitate towards you because you do what others won't. . And so they start asking you You can tap into their fears and their uncertainties and their embarrassments. And they're past, you could tap in all that and relate to 'em and say, bro, I've been where you're at. And if I got through it, you can too. And here are some things that you should do. That's what makes you more relatable? See you don't get any of those benefits. As long as you make pressure an option. Because you're gonna take the path of least resistance, take the path of most resistance. Take the things on that. No one else will do, and you will have what no one else will have. Think about it in sports analysts, always lean toward the athletes that have handled themselves in pressure situations. They're always gonna gravitate and pick the ones when there was a decimal of time left on the clock they were calm, cool, and collected, and they asked for the ball. And took the game one and shot. So when they're looking at matchups, they're gonna always pick the one that has been there before. Well, you can't get experience until you make pressure and obligation. There are times, these multi-millionaires. Took the game winning shot and missed, but they always ask for the ball back. They always ask to take the last shot because they make pressure an obligation. That's what you gotta do in your life. You may not be playing in the super bowl, but you're playing in the championship of your life. Life is full of options. And if you'll make pressure an obligation and do what others won't, you'll have what others can't what a privilege that is.
