What do you think of when you think of objections?
If you’re like most folks, you usually think of them in terms of sales, or perhaps in the dating and seduction world. Or perhaps therapy. Patient comes in, wants to stop smoking, but they can’t.
Any reason they give you is going to be an “objection.” Only they’re not objecting to anybody else, part of them is objection to what another part of them wants.
Whenever we say things like, “I’m of two minds,” or “part of me wants to go, but part of me doesn’t” it metaphorically shows that we really do believe that often times we’ve got different parts that want different things.
This is true about all of us, in all situations. Few people are ever 100% congruent about any conscious decision. There’s always a small part that has a little bit of doubt, or worry.
You can leverage this to your advantage, in a covert way, that will make you look like an absolute hero.
All without sounding like a salesperson or a crazy seducer or a wanna be therapist.
Just start talking to people, regular people. Move the conversation toward talking about what they want. Find out their hobbies, how they spend their free time, etc.
Let’s say you’re talking to somebody in line at the grocery store, and they mention their hobby is playing the piano.
Then ask the magic wand question. Say something like this: (in your own words, of course)
If you had a magic wand, and suddenly became the BEST piano player in the world, what would you do?
Then simply let them talk. Ask some helpful, open ended follow questions. Get them talking about their ideal future.
If they are like most normal humans, they’ll have some reservations about their ideal future. This is where you start dismantling their internal objections, so they can more easily and fully imagine their ideal future.
Naturally, they’ll feel a LOT better after talking to you, and associate all those good feelings with you.
