Steps of Success

Have you ever wondered what sets the leaders apart from the rest?
Why the leaders are able to achieve and fulfill their dreams?
Why they are able to lead a RockStar lifestyle others only dream about?
Why they are able to drive the best cars and live in great houses?

Well if you want to know the difference, read on….

“If you want different results, change your approach”

This is one of the mantras which leaders follow. They are the ones who have realized that being stuck in the Rat Race will not lead them to their dream life and they took action by getting started in Sami Direct.

But they did not stop at that!

The Leaders follow some Core Steps of Success – daily activities which get them closer to success everyday. These activities are designed in such a manner that it will surely get one on the path to success.

All the Top Earners of Sami Direct eat, breathe, and sleep these Core Steps of Success daily.

Today I am sharing with you the 1st of the Core Steps of Success in the Sami Direct.

Core Step of Success #1 : Be a Product of the Product!

One of the surest ways to success is by being a Brand Ambassador of the product and the product ranges you deal in. And this is where the Rest of guys get it wrong. The Rest don’t use their product and have no clue about its benefits. They only talk about some features which they read off a slide or heard during a presentation. They also don’t have the confidence due to the same reason.

Imagine someone overweight trying to promote a weight loss product! You can picture that. Would you like to get associated with such a person in their team? Probably not.

Not only do the Leaders use all the products personally or in their families, they can speak about the good experience they had with the Nutrition or Cosmetic range. And they don’t need to memorize any script. It all flows from the heart and that is the best way to promote the products.

The leaders have the confidence to speak on any product because they have seen it work with their own eyes. Doesn’t matter if they used it or some near and dear one did.

The power of any business lies in the success of the product and the word of mouth promotion of the same. The ripple effect created because of this gets people to jump onto the bandwagon i.e. your team and helps Leaders create the RockStar lifestyle.

This is what you need to do next.

Use the product and create your own personal product testimonial and share the same ahead.

For those of you, who are yet to start using the products, do so today!
For those of you who have been using the products and seen the amazing benefits, do share your testimonials with others. We are also in the process of building a website containing Testimonials – Product and Business. And we would love to share your story with the entire world!

Multiple Sclerosis & its Treatment by Curcumin

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS). It is a disorder which is most commonly diagnosed between ages 20 and 40, but can be seen at any age.

MS is caused by damage to the myelin sheath, the protective covering that surrounds nerve cells. When this nerve covering is damaged, nerve signals slow down or stop.

The nerve damage is caused by inflammation. Inflammation occurs when the body’s own immune cells attack the nervous system. This can occur along any area of the brain, optic nerve, and spinal cord.

It is unknown what exactly causes this to happen. The most common thought is that a virus or gene defect, or both, are to blame. Environmental factors may play a role.

Curcumin C3 Complex Patented by Sabinsa Corporation

Curcumin, a dietary spice from turmeric, has outstanding anti-inflammation and neuroprotective effects. It has also been used for many years to treat heartburn, stomach pain, bloating, jaundice, headaches, fibromyalgia, fever and even cancer.

According to the National Institutes of Medicine, the chemicals found in turmeric reduce swelling and inflammation and offer neuroprotective properties. In 2002, Dr. Chandramohan Natarjan from Vandervilt University, looked at curcumin to treat multiple sclerosis and shared his findings at the annual Experimental Biology 2002 conference.

What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You!

When Dr. Ray Strand found himself in a losing battle, unable to successfully treat his wife who had suffered chronically with pain and fatigue, he agreed to try the regimen of nutritional supplements that a neighbor suggested. Much to his surprise, his wife’s condition began to improve almost immediately. That amazing turn of events led him to dedicate himself to researching alternative therapies in medicine, particularly in the arena of nutritional supplements.

In the book, he explains to his readers what oxidative stress is, and how it can bring about many health-related problems. The book provides insights into how the body can activate its own healing powers, with the help of the right nutrients that it needs, like vitamins, minerals, proteins, fatty acids, and other vital nutrients.

This book demonstrates how the power of nutritional medicine can enhance your health, and also play a critical role on repairing the damage caused by illness such as diabetes, and cancer. This book shows simple steps you can take to protect your health by taking nutritional supplements.

The impact of nutritional medicine has had a dramatic and controversial–but documented–impact on the lives of Dr.Strand’s patients and can now change readers’ lives too.

Dr. Strand’s illumination of the body’s silent enemy-oxidative stress-will astound you. But, more importantly, his research will equip you to protect or reclaim your nutritional health, possibly reversing disease and preventing illness.

This book, written by a doctor, shows how nutritional therapy can heal many ailments better than drugs can.

Summary Of The Book

What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You has chapters that cover different ailments and their causes, and how to combat them with the right diet and supplements. Chapters in the book include Cellular Nutrition, Oxidative Stress and Your Eyes, Homocysteine: New Kid on the Block, and other topics that deal with diseases and their causes.

People who suffer from diseases like diabetes, heart problems, auto-immune diseases, cancer, and other disorders might find the information in this book enlightening and extremely helpful.

Dr.Strand’s basic message is pretty simple, as he states that helping one’s body take care of itself without burdening it with numerous drugs is the right path to good health.

About M.D. Ray D. Strand

Dr. Ray Strand is a medical practitioner who practised conventional medicine, dispensing prescription drugs to his patients like all doctors, till he discovered the value of nutritional therapy when his wife was cured of fibromyalgia by a nutritional regimen. He is now a specialist in Nutritional Medicine and has written many books on the subject.
His other books include Death By Prescription: The Shocking Truth Behind an Overmedicated Nation, Living By Design, Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue, and Preventing Diabetes (Health Concept).

Dr. Strand underwent training at the University of Colorado Medical School, and started a private family practice on preventive medicine. Only 12 years into his career was he introduced to the benefits of nutritional medicine. He is an important figurehead in the field, and has given lectures in many countries like Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

Finite Versus Infinite

The most limiting belief I encounter with people about prosperity is the belief that money is finite. Remember money is simply a mind virus created by man. It’s a tool we use to barter services and goods. But money is not prosperity, it is a tool for exchange of it.

All true prosperity is infinite. Things like love, hugs, and other form of prosperity are inexhaustible. As the Buddha so famously taught, thousands of candles can be lit by a single candle, without shortening its life by a single second. The more prosperity you circulate, the more you will receive.

Prospecting 101: Talking to Anyone

Prospecting and networking may not be natural to you but it’s not something you can’t learn to do!

The worst feeling in the world, though, is walking into a room, realising you know no one, and then trying to figure out where to start.

Fortunately, I have good news for those who are a bit shy. Building rapport with new people is a skill.

So what can you do to build rapport? Try these approaches:  that can be learned. Your conversations with new people and strangers don’t have to be strained and jilted. Besides, if you can build up a personal rapport first you’ll have an easier time discussing business later on.

  • Dress to impress. The first thing a person will notice about is is the way you look. As a matter of fact, they’ll look at your appearance before they even greet you. Make sure your hair is done, your clothes are clean, and that you are dressed in a style similar to what your customer wears daily.
  • Be disarmingly honest. What I mean is that you shouldn’t answer the standard greeting questions with the same old “Fine – how are you?” responses all the time. Occasionally you should be honest when answering this type of question. Laugh the question off and tell them about the rough start you had that morning or relay a funny story about your children. Your answer, while honest, will be completely unexpected.
  • Incorporate a sincere complement into your conversation. The next time you meet with a customer, prospect, or peer pay special attention to him and his business. Let him know if you see something that really makes a positive impression. He’ll appreciate the compliment and it will open up doors for continued conversation.

These are just three simple tips for establishing rapport but you can see from these how easy it really is to strike up a conversation with someone you know very little about.

Try to make a connection on a personal level and the rest of your prospecting experience will go much smoother.

Keep The Faith!

Tool : Guest Registration Form

A very important aspect of sharing the Sami Direct opportunity is the Pre-Talk.

Pre-Talk is the conversation you have with a prospect before you share the Sami Direct opportunity with him/her. What you say during Pre-Talk is going to have bearing on the way the meeting will go! It can lead to a plan show or it can lead you to moving on to other prospects as you think that this particular prospect might not be a right fit at this time.

In short, Pre-Talk is about melting the ice between you and your prospect.  It is about creating a rapport with him/her by telling him about yourself and  finding out more information about them.

It is also about finding out why the prospect would get started in your business!

Now that sounds tough, doesn’t it?

For how can we know as to what is on the prospect’s mind??? What does he/she exactly want???

So it is an impossible task! Or is it?

Let me assure you that this is one of the easiest things to do in the business, finding out what your prospect wants.

And how about a tool which helps you do the same without your having to become a master of techniques like Body Language, Psychoanalysis and other long worded techniques?

A tool so easy to use that you can get to know what your prospect wants and why they should be a part of your organization and Sami Direct!

A tool so simple that even the new IRs in your team can also duplicate from day one and that too without any hassle and get instant results just like our Top Leaders!

Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing Guest Registration Form (GRF) – the tool which will help you do all of the above!

You can download it from the following URLs.

Guest Registration Form – 

Keep 5-10 printouts of GRF along whenever you go for a presentation. 

Start with a little conversation about yourself and ask them what they do for a living, who all are there in their family, what do they do for recreation etc. Once you have created a rapport with them, have them fill out the GRF.

Ask them to fill it out honestly! 

Once they have done the same, review the filled in GRF. Many of your prospects might have left some fields blank. Ask them to fill them in.

And then ask them if they were serious about having their dreams turn into realities in the next 2-3 years! If they say ‘Yes’, share the Sami Direct opportunity with them.

Remember the fact – “We are looking for serious people who are ready to put in sincere efforts to fulfill their dreams

Keep The Faith!
