How many of you know cycling and driving?

I believe most (if not all) of us know cycling and driving. In fact, many of you might have amazing cycling and driving skills. 

Now imagine if I gave you a plane and asked you to fly it. 

How many of you can do it?

I cannot do it and I am sure most of you might not. Why? Because we do not know how to fly. We need to learn flying (theoretically and practically), and we need to get a flying license.

This is exactly the era we are living in. We all know to do our business in a certain way. We know to cycle and drive but we have no clue how to fly. It is time to learn how to fly.

Flying in your business means the Art and Science of learning the following:

  • Virtual Client Acquisition
  • Conducting Outstanding Virtual Meetings (Anyone can open Zoom and do a meeting just like anyone can play Cricket but only Sachin can become Sachin or Ajinkya can become Ajinkya)
  • Storytelling
  • Asking Great Questions
  • Listening (Learning to keep quiet and taking the necessary pauses)
  • Wow First Meeting 
  • Powerful Conversations
  • Emotionally Connecting with your Prospects
  • A World Class Virtual and Physical Client Experience
  • Knowledge of Behavioural Finance

The need of the hour for all of us is to take flying lessons. Like all skills, this one will take time to develop and a commitment of time and resources. I can already see the winners of the next 2 decades starting to learn flying (building the skills that will make them the champions).

What about you?  Are you committed to learn and become world class? If so, we are waiting to help you. Even if you do not need our guidance, enrol yourself with whoever you believe can teach you how to fly in this new world and Go for it.
