‘What The Heck, I’m Not Kissing That’, says Dan

Hi Dear, we care so much about you more than you can guess, here is a little lesson to learn from the Dan’s, i wish to share with you.

Dan Lok –

Did you know that my mentor, Dan Peña, has 300 toy frogs all over his castle in Scotland…

Weird right?

Yeah. You can imagine how shocked I was when I first discovered this…

Who would think a man living in a CASTLE – that makes millions and millions of dollars and flies private – would keep toy frogs all over his head office?

And he doesn’t just have toy frogs…


He has “Thank You” cards with frogs. Coasters that have frogs on them. Cufflinks of frogs…

Frog ties…

He even has a carpet with frogs on it!

It’s crazy.

But he does have a reason for it all. And that’s what I’m going to share with you today.

You see, early in Dan Peña’s career, he worked as a salesman on Wall Street…


And during that time, his job was to call people in New York – and sell them something.

But he didn’t just call a few people here and there.

No…

He called everyone.

And when I say everyone, I mean everyone.

Everyone in the yellow pages…

Everyone in the white pages…

And after he called everyone in those books, he had to call every office building that had more than 10 floors! (Which is basically every single building on Wall Street).

And what Mr. Peña learnt from all that time spent calling is this:

#1. You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a customer; and

#2. You have to turn over a lot of rocks before you find success.

And that’s one of the biggest secrets he ever taught me…

Success Isn’t About Luck – It’s About Numbers

One of the biggest reasons people fail in business is NOT because they didn’t get the right opportunity. Or because they didn’t know the right person…

It’s because they give up way to soon.

They kiss one frog. They get one “NO”. And then they quit…

They never try again.

Just like that.

But the truth is, you probably won’t succeed on your first go anyway…

It took me 13 failures to get my first success.

So don’t even worry if at first you fail. Just keep going.

The best part about business is you only need one win to make up for all the losses.

So go out there. Meet new people.

Go to events like Toastmasters. Join a local club or mastermind if there’s one in your area…

And most importantly, don’t be afraid to kiss frogs.

P.S. One way to reduce the amount of frogs you have to kiss is by learning from people who have already “been there and done that”
