The Jordan Belfort close only

Have you ever heard of him? Well I know virtually his whole story and yet far from it. Jordan Belfort has pitched me few times or I would rather say, he has taught me to see things of sales a new way.

To put it in other words, he made things extreme rather than doing only a new program to fit into my subconscious side of mind, well also many others, I will mix it a bit with Stella Adler‘s teachings in her book or from her book, Art of Acting.

I was inspired to study him first of all, because his attitude and I saw the movie The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. When I had seen the movie few times I then set up the question, who was this Jordan in real, because the personality Leonardo showed, was this greedy and still fun and at times uncontrollable maniac, that I could laugh at and still learn some things from my own past.

Jordan has developed this key sales-program that actually teaches people to close a sale, to benefit clients and customers and to leave them with value.

The sales program has some specific key elements that can lead people to buy what they actually need, and with the help of the salesman, and I am not joking here, I am working with it myself.

The program he created named The Straight Line Persuasion, analyzes a sales from the very first initiation of potential prospect, through qualifying and looping and closing with the benefit of leaving a person with an impression of value.

You see, we all make sales every single day, we sell to ourselves though we are not consciously aware of it, when we ask a civilized person or an authority for guidance, we make a sale. This is where most people tell themselves, I am not a salesperson, so they isolate themselves and do not cross the barrier of mixing with life. That is another story.

The program he created focuses on the actual close, and when moving in that direction, he puts a lot of energy in helping people from where they are in a company etc. to where they want to be, but actual having the client say yes.

Preparing for oscar

There are probably millions that watch this show that have 87 years behind it, and I to this point begin to wonder who gets the Oscars and when they do, why they have won them, so I am watching movies on-line here and when I do, I have a couple of things in mind to see the acting, the directing, the language, and who plays who. The reason I like the academy awards is of course it is live, but yet planned because if nothing is planned then everything goes wrong, and I know it can and will go wrong, because actors and directors are used to taking orders or be directed.

So preparing for the night of the academy is a bit special, or so it was before I had the insight of what goes on behind the scenes. The control that belongs to keep the audience where they are, is a simple thing when one can speak to feelings and emotions. When someone are speaking to your feelings you are easily being sold to, you have a good chance of buying what is being sold or when you go shopping and thinking emotionally then you have a higher chance to buy immediately, than anything else.

So this hype about preparing for oscar’s, was because I would want to determine whether I could see who got an Oscar and who wouldn’t get one, but I did not make it to see the movies that was nominated, because I have a procrastination-habit. This procrastination-habit is something I work on to eliminate, and blogjob is on board to help me including Herbalife. To put a last word on the prepared thing for the Oscar, then I had in mind to kind of see what messages there also are in the movies, as the actors are instructed to say.

The James Bond helicopter

I witnessed like those who visits a website what goes on, on a film set, I saw few behind the scenes on James Bond and I assume it is the upcoming one which I have not yet seen the title of, or heard much about, I guess I’m not that big of a fan, and to mention it, I see the gadgets that are in the James Bond movies to be kind of like a future reality for public. The set I saw was when a car drives on average speed and I got the idea of Taxi the French movies which I believe is the original, I like them very much.

I can’t remember exactly which of the four movies it was from, but the Taxi who has the driver Daniel behind the wheel, he actually interferes with a race uphill and meets with the race’s car, and over the communication-system it is said by the driver; someone is trying to pass me, but it is a taxi, the camera shifts to Daniel who has a pregnant woman on the backseat, when he says that the race driver is a bit too slow, and Daniel succeeds to race away from him.

What I saw in the, behind the scenes clip, was a helicopter had this camera hanging and was flying by arrangement in front of the car in the real speed and, so I guess when action-scenes are recorded, I think a couple of times to get the right image. I am then convinced that the director is of course directing, watches his first test, so to speak, then he see how the camera rolls it, I believe he then searches for errors and angles to make it better. Where I also am convinced a helicopter is used is when scenes is needed across mountains or bird-view in cities. I very like to see these things comes to life, I might even once direct a film, who knows.
