A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a young Jedi Knight tried to use a mind trick on a Hutt.
If you're wondering what to do when your Jedi mind trick fails, then this is the video for you. This week, I'll be giving you three tips for influence and persuasion, and make sure you stick around to the end for a bonus. On this channel, I help you unlock your powers and be the hero of your story. If you're new to my channel, make sure you click below and subscribe. I put out new videos every Friday, and you don't want to miss out.
Tip number one is confidence. If you don't believe, then why should anybody else? You have to absolutely believe in yourself and believe in your cause. If you look in the description below, I'm going to include a link to my video on how to find your WHY, because when you know your WHY, you can be absolutely confident. The next time you're trying to get your X-wing fighter out of a swamp in the Dagobah system, remember, be confident.
Tip number two is to understand. You have to absolutely understand the person or group that you're trying to influence. You have to get inside their head and figure out what it is they want and then tell them why they should care and how it's going to make their life better. Once you can do that, it'll be easier to win them over to your cause.
Tip number three is storytelling. The only thing more powerful than telling people how it's going to change their lives is, actually show people how it's going to change their lives. Look for an example of an early win where your cause has helped someone, and then share that story like crazy. I mean, jump on that thing and ride it like a stolen speeder bike through the Endor forest.
All right, so now it's time for this week's bonus, and that is knowledge. You need to be the absolute expert on whatever your cause is, so that way you can not only answer the questions that people are asking you, but you can also answer the questions they're thinking about, so you can eliminate their objections and bring them over to your cause.
