So I shared earlier this week that one of my favorite 80’s movies is Kickboxer with Jean Claude Van Damme 🥋
One of my favorite scenes of the movie is when JCVD begins training with the famous Muay Thai trainer in the jungle.
The trainer has JCVD kick a thick bamboo tree at the base.
Immediately, JCVD falls over in pain as his shin bruises up.
The trainer has him continue to kick the bamboo tree.
He begrudgingly continues to kick it as his shin continues to bruise and bleed.
Fast forward and after thousands of kicks, JCVD can now kick down thick bamboo trees with minimal effort or pain.
This is much like sales.
When you make that first #coldcall or door knock, it feels like you’re kicking a thick bamboo tree base.
You may see zero results.
For a while.
However, if you commit to excellence and practice, it will become easier with time.
Eventually, you’ll be able to “kick down bamboo trees” or book appointments with ease!
Just remember that every master was once a disaster.
Be like Jean Claude Van Damme in Kickboxer and put the work in.
Do you agree?
