2 Sentences That’ll Help You Close 6 and 7-Figure Deals

If you’ve never closed a six or seven-figure deal before, take a moment and imagine what it would feel like. What would be the thoughts running through your head? Who would be the first person you’d tell? How would you celebrate? And what would it feel like if that were just your average Tuesday?

Now, keeping with that vision, what do you think it took for you to close that deal?

A long, detailed, perfectly designed sales page?

A sales video or (worse) a series of sales videos?

Tons of free content and lead magnets to showcase your worth? 

How surprised would you be to find out that you don’t need any of it?

There are so many misconceptions about what it actually takes to close a six or seven-figure deal.

While these tactics will help you build your personal brand online and grow your email list, these aren’t the things that will close six and seven-figure deals. Closing those kinds of contracts comes down to two things: connection and value.

It’s electric

Connecting with the right people makes all of the difference. And how you connect with them will take you even further. Markets are changing rapidly and in order to attract the right clients, it’s important that you’re communicating in a way that draws them in. Tactics and strategies are quickly becoming outdated. What worked two years ago is not necessarily the same thing that will work today. However, the one thing that will always work, no matter what happens in the market, is the power of genuine connection. 

When you prioritize building a relationship and communicating in a value-focused manner first, your prospect will feel how much you care. This allows them to naturally put their guard down so they can be open to what you have to say. Which is perfect to prime your prospect for the two-sentence messaging method. 

“We are wired for connection. But the key is that, in any given moment of it, it has to be real.” – Brené Brown

Sentence one

When starting a conversation with a potential prospect or lead, focus on them. Introduce yourself and then start the conversation talking about something memorable. This could be a blog post, an article, a recent post they made, or an achievement the person you want to engage with is celebrating. This shows your prospect that you’re genuinely interested in who they are, that you’re paying attention to what’s going on in their world, and that you’re open to a more intimate conversation instead of staying surface level with it. 

For example, let’s say you wanted to make a deal with Cindy, a luxury cosmetics brand owner. Cindy was just featured in Allure, being praised for the work she’s doing for women’s mental health as an extension of her cosmetics company. This conversation might look something like:

 “Hi, Cindy. My name is Hannah. I read your feature in Allure last week, and I wanted to thank you for the work you’re doing. I lost someone close to me due to mental health issues, and work like yours could have saved their life.”

To be clear, only say things that are true. And when you find something to comment on while making a point of connection, you are going to stand out and be memorable. This makes all of the difference in the conversation that follows. 

When you start with opening the door to intimacy and vulnerability, then the other person is more likely to follow suit. 

Now you’re ready for sentence two! 

Sentence two

Now that you’re engaged in a conversation where the other person is open and receptive to you, reward their trust by giving. The knee-jerk response is often to start to sell. Instead of asking for the sale, listen to what they share with you. Once you find where they’re experiencing problems, offer value—specific value to their situation.

When you can identify their problems and stuck points, you’ve grabbed their attention. What this does psychologically to your prospect is alert them to the fact that you understand them, you can see the complexity of their situation, and you can help them navigate their problem successfully.

This gives you the power to provide so much value that the prospect deeply connects with you and wants to work with you regardless of how much you charge. When done right, with the audience in your specific market, more than 80% of the time these clients will instantly ask you to work with them.

At this point, you have the opportunity to position your offer in a way that’s high value, high-end, and of course, highly transformational. That’s what six and seven-figure clients pay for.

5 Simple Habits to Live A Less Chaotic, Happier Life

Published

Many of us spend our daily lives searching for happiness. We jump from one job to another, from one hobby to another, hoping to spark a sense of joy and purpose.

But it’s hard pursuing happiness. After all, life is full of frustration and can put a stopper to our feel-good days.

And it’s challenging to be happy when we are juggling the responsibilities of everyday life like work and relationships. While achieving happiness is arduous, it’s not impossible. Try out these 5 habits to enjoy life more and be happier.

1. Walk in Nature

Spending time in nature has always improved my mood. Taking a walk around my neighborhood park, surrounded by trees and vegetation, I enter a peaceful state of mind.

The worries previously weighing on my mind are suddenly lifted, and I feel an indescribable sense of joy.

Taking just 20 minutes out of my day to get a fresh breath of air is extremely relaxing. 

In our work culture that favors busyness, there is little room for calmness. We associate a busy schedule with how successful we are, which isn’t entirely true at all.

In fact, it might be a disaster in the making. All that stress and anxiety bottled up without an outlet—the outcome is obvious.

So getting in touch with nature is my go-to way of maintaining a proper work-life balance. It makes me energized and ready to blast through the rest of my day with optimism.

2. Smile More Often

I make it a habit to smile every day; they aren’t fake smiles but genuine ones. And they have become a regular part of my life.

What am I smiling at, exactly? It can be the night sky covered with shining stars, like fine quicksand. Or, it can be the flowers sprouting new leaves in spring.

I embrace everything with open arms. Even when I have a rainy day, I don’t let it ruin my momentum.

Regardless of what happens, a simple smile can brighten my day; and best yet, it’s completely free.

At some point, everyone can have a stressful day and feel burned out. So put up a smile. Even if you’re not a positive person, take a firm stance against negativity. Your daily life will surely burst with joy.

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

3. Find Your Passion

Many people dive headfirst into a day job that doesn’t interest them. They do it just for the money, which only makes them more miserable.

People who aren’t attached to their work will find difficulty achieving happiness. They live in a gray and stale world devoid of positivity.

Listen to your heart. Ask yourself: What makes me feel enthusiastic and excited? This is a time to discover your hopes and dreams.

You have endless opportunities in this world. Start a business. Volunteer at a charity drive. Figure out your reason why.

Personally, I used to turn to real estate to earn dependable rental income. But there was no sense of fulfillment. That feeling soon reached a tipping point, which pushed me to re-prioritize everything.

I wanted to make a positive impact on people’s lives. Combining my interest in business and self-improvement, I pursued my passion for blogging. And I can’t be any happier about it.

Everyone needs something that keeps their life meaningful. It can be a source of light that helps us walk in the right direction.

So having goals and dreams makes us genuinely happy. Without them, it will be a long, treacherous journey.

4. Practice Gratitude

Some days we may not feel a shred of gratitude. We are overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of life where we seek perfection, one that is only full of success and wins.

However, that will only put you further away from happiness.

Take the time every day to pause and appreciate something in your life. What I find helpful is sitting down with a pen and paper.

I start with “I am grateful for…” It can be the appreciation for my afternoon cup of herbal tea. It can be the clear blue sky on a sunny day.

This routine sets up a support system that reinforces positive emotions. It reminds me that there are many things I’ve experienced in life and even more things that I’m grateful for.

Even if I have a bad day, I try my best to be grateful and encourage lasting joy.

So appreciate everything that enters your life—all the good and bad. You will see your mood elevate to an entirely new level.

5. Create Memories With Loved Ones

It can be tempting to focus all our time and energy on reaching valued goals. We say, “I’ll take it easy and spend time with loved ones after I’m successful.”

But what if that time never comes? What if, at some point, your loved ones are suddenly gone?

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Prioritize your loved ones today, not next year. After all, you wouldn’t want to leave any room for regret.

The cherished memories you make now will be a spark of joy. They can even be a source of motivation when shooting for goals.

As social creatures, sharing stories, feelings, and dreams can make us happy and fulfilled.

Living a solitary life is not for everyone. Although having some alone time is perfectly fine, you should still make memorable experiences with those close to you. They will be cherished within your heart for as long as you live.

The quest for lasting happiness can be daunting at times. We spend much of our time searching for it, almost giving up along the way.

But you need to see the bright side. Living a better and happier life isn’t a far-fetched dream; it’s within reach. Remember that happiness can come from the small habits and things you do daily.

If you want to lead the life you truly want, practice these 5 habits and be consistent every day. Don’t give up halfway. Once you do so, there will be nothing stopping you from enjoying life to the fullest.
