A Note From Jim

The Best Psychology I Learned… From A Dog Trainer!

There’s a cool technique I learned from a friend of mine who is actually a canine behaviorist… she has a PhD in the stuff.

I was teaching a class with a huge payoff promised for the participants.

As we went through, instead of ramming everything down their throats all at once… I spaced everything out.

In fact, I had people asking me “When is this going to get difficult? When are we going to really dig in?”

Now, I knew, if I hit them with everything all at once they’d lock up. I had to warm everyone up (kinda like a trainer has you do jumping jacks before you ever attempt pull-ups).

I wanted to get everyone in the habit of writing for 30 minutes non-stop each day… so when we started the class, I would only let them write for 2 minutes.

Gradually, after only a week, I had everyone writing for 15 minutes a day… and at the end of 2 weeks I had them all easily writing non-stop for 30 minutes.

Everyone was thrilled and EVERYONE got results and accomplished their objectives.

After the class I had my friend, Suzanne, tell me I had used a classic psychology principle.

I had unwittingly gotten people to “strain against the leash.” What she meant was that by “holding people back” at the beginning, I actually made them WANT to do more (like a dog straining against the leash).

The more I held back, the more they wanted to break free… and they thought it was their idea!!

When it comes to sales it’s often called the takeaway close – you show them something they want, then actually make it DIFFICULT for them to get it… which makes them want it more.

So, the point of all this is simple: how can you make your customers strain against the leash to want what you have even more?


Time limit / Deadline?

Limited quantity?

Higher price?

Think on it… the answer could change your business forever!
