I just love when it when I coach someone, take him out into the field and watch him transform right before my very eyes. It’s the ultimate reward for me. Helping someone achieve his goals and than looking into his eyes as he slowly starts to realize that he “Can do this”! I refer to it as his epiphany moment. It’s the moment where my students see what he’s capable of when it comes to cold approach pick-up, it’s the moment where his inner confidence shines through, it’s the AH-HA moment… After all these years I still love it just as much as the first time I saw it. It never gets old.
A few weeks ago I was out running around in NYC with a student and he came up with a great spin on an old routine! And this routine was KILLER… I’ve since adjusted it a bit but I’m gonna save my tweak for one of my books that I’m releasing but his original take on it is awesome. It was so awesome that I just had to share it with everyone. Here it goes!
You: So, where did you grow up?
You: No way! I used to have a friend who grew up in (Wherever she’s from) and he used to tell me that at Christmas time instead of getting I-phones and I-pads as presents they would all get goats and chickens!
You: Yeah! So… How many goats do you own?
I promise the chicks you say this to will be laughing their asses off! Have fun with this one! It’s been field tested by me many times, my student and many students since him and it always get a great laugh or a fun little slap on the arm!
If you guys can think of any great variations of this routine please let me know… I might put into my book!
