Trust me I know exactly what you are going through.But when I sit down to make calls I will sit there for about 15 mins or so before then when I start I get past two to three calls then I am fine from there.I go through this every day.But I do it consistantly.

I have a paper in front of me on the wall that I read everyday one says dont ever give up with a frog in the mouth of a crane choking it to let it go.The other If its to be....Its up to me.Find something to keep you motivated and going and hang in front of you so you will see it every day.HTH

I felt the exact same way too...I would literally talk to myself a little before each call, hahaha..sort of a little pep talk - I'd say "Just do it!", and then remind myself that I was just going to be talking to people that were just like me, no one scary. My first calls were very funny looking back, I stuttered a lot, and probably made no sense hehe. But, after I made myself do it, it got easier and easier. Now I love calling people.

As far as scripts for the members, I've only seen one. I'm on the FAHT, and I sort of adapted the script and added some of my own words to it.

Keep calling, and it will start to be enjoyable, if you can believe it! [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

We all start out BAD!!! But we get better!

I was the person who took an "F" on a report because I refused to give it in front of my class. I was always the shy person that would not introduce myself to anyone first...

Of course those that know me now know me different and they would say I'm NOT shy! LOL... To an extent I've come out of my shell and I can basically talk to just about anyone...

I had to overcome that though and I was nervous when I hit the phones for the first time as well. Like Jennifer said.. It got easier and easier!!!

You arenot weird! This is very common. This was my big obstacle too!!

The thought of picking up the phone literally made me sick. I remember my very first recruiting call, I stumbled all over myself and rambled A LOT. I must have sounded ridiculous!! I actually remember the guy giggling at me. After I got off that call, I swore I would never do it again. But I knew I was NEVER going to quit so I had to figure something out. So, that night I was on a training call hosted by Janie and she said something that really stuck with me. She said "You will have to be bad before you can get good". That's when I made my decision to GET GOOD!! I started plugging intoEVERY live prospecting call hosted by Janie, Becky and Kelly. After listening to them over and over again, the information was embedded in my head. I was having dreams about prospecting! Knowing what I was talking about made me comfortable on the phone. Plus, a lot of practice! The more you do it, the more comfortable you will get. I finally enrolled my first broker six weeks in to the business. And, the rest is history Get on some prospecting calls and make your WHY bigger than your fear and you WILL overcome this obstacle!!!

Oh, and that first person that I talked to that I stumbled all over, called me eight months later and enrolled in the family medical plan!!And, just a few weeks ago I had a lady call me and enroll as an IBO and I talked to her last May, over a year ago!!! She said she was finally ready! Both of those people were from my "bad" period. Moral of my story, no call is a wasted call, even when you're bad. They will hearhow great ourcompany is through all of your rambling
