No one likes to feel embarrassed, yet embarrassment can be a powerful motivator if you use it correctly.
Jim Rohn, (Tony Robbins’ former boss), tells a great story about how his life was transformed, after he was embarrassed. A little girl came to his door selling cookies for charity and Jim was too broke to buy any – so he lied to her. The deep embarrassment he felt afterwards was a tipping point, which eventually saw him go on to develop a multi-million dollar fortune.
When I first set my business up, I had a client, who was always late paying me. I found out later from one of her former employees that this was something she did with everyone; not for cash-flow reasons, her business was cash-rich, but because she actually enjoyed it! I used to get really embarrassed having to call her office and ask for my payment each month; so I decided after 1 too many embarrassing conversations, to fire her as a client.
However, that embarrassing experience was what helped motivate me to create my massively successful marketing program; which for fifteen year now, has seen me help small and medium sized businesses from all over the world to make more sales and boost their profits.
