ABOUT Tony's Story
As a young child and a teenager, I suffered from obesity, depression, and anxiety. I was bullied for my overweight body.
I became an alcoholic and my weight shot to over 120kg at the age of 17. My family didn’t understand my issues.They blamed me for being lazy and acting sick to evade work. I couldn’t handle this confrontation and run away from home. Consequently, I was forced to start working at a very young age, working countless jobs in several countries all over the World.
Soon I experienced that people and sales were my real vocation. So I focussed on jobs in those domains. Starting with door-to-door sales, I moved to tele-sales and finale corporate sales.
However, I was not really successful and lost many deals. My proposals were rejected many times, because my lack of understanding on the prospects procurement needs and motives.
On top I lost it during the sales process itself, as I could not catch the genuine interest of the clients. One day a friend of mine introduced me to someone, who was considered to have exceptional competences and skills.
He convinced me to overcome my restraints and I decided to meet this person. His thinking patterns forced me to change mine completely. He made me question my walk of life and align it with my passions. He impressed me truly with his refreshing insights and the fundamentals they were based upon.
He became my life mentor, by planting seeds of success and positive thinking in my mind. After taking his training, based on NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) in a very short time I progressed to be a very successful and happy salesman.
I also started to achieve the great things that I had always been dreaming of. Through these changes and achievements, I found my real destiny in life. My passion in helping others be happier with themselves while overcoming their problems and fears life has thrown at them. In sales – my other passion – my understanding of the clients’ emotions and buying drivers improved dramatically. My ability to connect with them at a subconscious level made me more successful than ever. I learned to create chemistry with my clients rather than seeing them as my victims. I learned how to influence them to give them the feeling they act out of their own free will rather than by my force. I could close most of my deals and even became friends with most of my customers. To date I keep good relations with numerous of my old customers, proving that the sales process was a real success. Since my initial transformation – and for almost a decade – I have guided and coached many companies and people to realize their missions and dreams.
