Your noun needs a new verb
Today was great show on recovering from emotional or physical injury.
Here are a few excerpts from today’s episode. I urge to to check out the full episode of The Sales Life Podcast on iTunes (or your favorite podcast app) and YouTube.(Hit the subscribe button on both to not miss a single daily episode.)
- We all have injuries.
- I’d just starting getting into my workout program and got injured.
- My business was rolling, but the pandemic wiped me out.
- My divorce is pulling at me hard.
Your recovery has everything to do with what comes AFTER your injury.
- Injury is a noun & a noun functions as the main element of the verb. So the verb (the action) is controlled by the noun.
- If your injury is followed by the past tenses of was, should’ve, or couldn’t, then you’ll always have past tense results.
- “I was doing so good, but” (injury)
- “I should’ve stayed where I was…: (injury)
- “I thought I could push it, but…” (injury)
- Past tense = past results = a dead future.
- When you’re injured: bankruptcy, divorce, fired, torn, broken, sentenced, or discovered, your noun (injury) needs a verb-not a constant reminder of what’s already happened.
- What’s your verb? Your noun needs an antonym.
- The opposite of injury is leverage, advantage, gain, position, improve, return…
- & also blessing. Some injuries are blessings in disguise but won’t be revealed until you put your injury to work.
- “Due to my injury I’m leveraging…”
- “Due to my injury I’m gaining control of…”
- “Due to my injury I’m positioning myself to train differently or take on bigger territories.”
- “Due to my injury I’m returning to the disciplines that I got away from.”
- “Due to my injury I’m improving my skill set.”
- Give your injury new direction
- TSL action item:
- What is your noun (injury)?
- What’s your new verb? (None of that I need to…was gonna, bs either)
