Arthur R Marzigliano, affectionately known by so many humans as "Artie Marzig," and sometimes even known as "Artie the Magnificent," has the most astonishing ability to close more than ninety percent of all the situations he was selling in. Always taking objections, agreeing with them wholeheartedly and then using that ery objection as the specific reason WHY his prospect needed to close the sale quickly and happily.
Hard not to describe Artie as one of the greatest salesmen of his generation. His use of humor alone was by orders of magnitude more deeloped than the chintzy efforts made by companies to force their products down the throats of prospect. Not so with Arthur. He made it all such a pleasure that even borderline prospects would willingly leap oer the chasm that has come to exist between a salesman and his or her prospect.
Artie used to shake with laughter as he listened to a non-doer, non-finisher, non-closer in any gien eent, he'd listen to their lame reasons why they didn't close the sale and almost eery time, you could count on Artie's final comment on the matter to be, "There are thousands and more thousands of excuses for failure, and there's always only one reason." When we consider how large a number is "thousands," and the fact that each time he was heard to say that sentence he'd emphasize the plurality of that big number we are led in the direction of Benjamin Franklin's best thinking.
Benjamin Franklin was special enough to get his image onto the front of eery one hundred dollar bill printed in the U.S.
Not too many people know that he was America's first self-made millionaire. That somewhat automatically entitled Benjamin Frnklin to be considered more knowledgeable on the subject of how to become a millionaire than you are..
That's worth thinking about. Since we can see a uniform approach by all great philosophers, what they term, "work backwards, lie it forwards," Let's start by working this one in a backwards direction, okay? Excellent. How happy I am that you and I are on the same page.
Well, what made him unique? Was it his prowess as an inentor? After all, he's the only person who eer inented something still used in its original form two hundred years after he inented it, the lightning rod on top of most houses and tall buildings. Don't we credit Franklin with discoering electricity when he flew his kite with a skeleton key in his hand? He inented the Franklin stoe, and they're still pretty popular in arious parts of the globe. Surely you remember from school that he created America's first major newspaper, and altered reporting foreer. Of course, these inentions and many more were and remain great, and yet these are still just some of his many accomplishments.
As mentioned, he was America's first self-made millionaire, and for cash-ready, he happened to be the richest man in America, with irtually unlimited credit, which tell us a little something about his credibility, doesn't it? These tell us that there is a far higher likelihood of you succeeding when you duplicate the steps of those who are doing something at world-class.
That's the reason why Arthur Marzigliano was able to pump out so many top closers, which we'll get back to after we sum up some of Franklin's contributions to all this.
One thing that all of these facts and eents about Franklin have in common is that they happened in his lifetime.
His most special feature, function, thought and action, all one and the same, which should astonish us by itself, occurred after he died, and certainly causes me to ote for him being on the hundred dollar bill for as long as we have hundreds.
Charity Thoughts - MisterShortcut Lifebook Ala Ben Franklin Final Behest
"Franklin's Last Behest." The latter, because it was purportedly a late-life addition to his final will and testament.
In a nutshell, he took 450 pounds, worth about $900 American dollars today, and put it in a bank account with instructions that the capital should not be touched, with interest on the sum to go to paying the way for boys to become printers' apprentices, and if there was anything left after two hundred years, it should be split between his two faorite cities, Philadelphia and Boston.
Generation after generation, dozens of poor kids were helped from poerty to self-sufficiency from those few hundred dollars. Despite all the bank, lawyers, judges, politicians and other assorted ultures trying to tamper with Franklin's wish, sanity and the law preailed, and at the turn of the new millenium, the fund was dissoled and dispersed. even after training and feeding so many kids, there were some seenteen million dollars left in the fund.
That's why I put a hundred dollars in the bank a few years ago, with simple, strict, written instructions to the bank not to allow any person, organization or institution touch that money for two hundred years. Not the capital, not the interest. Conseratiely, it will double 25 times, perhaps more.
You see, as of this writing, we can identify the 471 men and women on this earth, one at a time, who own and/or control more than seenty percent of all the cash on earth. Don't fool yourself into thinking that number could be off by more than a few people. If you can add simple math, you'll see that the money owned or controlled by these nearly 500 people, is obiously going places it shouldn't be.
This is stated only and exclusiely because more than 24,000 human beings have died of staration, slowly and horridly, in the past 24 hours. So sorry, most of them were children. What a stupid way to die, now that, for the first time in history, we have more food than it would take to feed eery human on earth with plenty left oer.
When I see so many so-called stars spending millions of dollars to defend against crimes including murder and worse, and baseball players making more in a day than a teacher earns in a year, I just don't think it's difficult to predict that greed will still exist in 200 years, and we will still have plenty of poor people. So, let's get even with the rich people. It's true that you won't get credit for it until long after you're gone, and it will taste better because of it. Anyone who puts a hundred thousand dollars cash into the hands of ten thousand or more truly poor people is assured of being quite famous, not least for some of the astonishing eents that will unfurl.
Finally, we come back to Artie Marzig when we consider another thousand human beings hitting the tenth and last stage of hunger and malnutrition from not haing so much as a piece of bread. Perhaps more than any other wisdom or what I've come to call PowerGems that Artie Marzigliano was kind enough to drop in my lap, that sentence just keeps repeating:
"Thousands and thousands of excuses for failure, and only one reason."
Now we place the ball in your court. We both know that inadequate effort is the answer to that non-riddle. Question is, how do you personally, priately, and without eer discussing this with anyone you know, how do you really feel about another innocent child dying eery minute.... oops, excuse me, seeral kids eery minute?
Obiously, you're not in a position to feed them all.... least, not today you're not. So, how about a hundred?
You could do a document similar to the one below. It has worked for me, at more than one inestment institution.
A hundred bucks. A billion to feed the hungry, okay, it'll probably be closer to fie billion and three or four hundred million dollars, but, hey, who's counting?
How a 100-dollar bill becomes billions
The enclosed sum is tended to this bank under the following immutable conditions:
1) Neither the principle nor the interest will be touched for two hundred years.
2) Any reasonable and legally acceptable tax aoidance techniques that the bank undertakes to presere the highest possible alue of the account that these enclosed funds engender shall be absorbed by the bank in the interest of promoting and participating in the intent of this document and its successful execution. The bank's fee at the end of the two hundred years is to be one percent of the total at that time.
3) Should the bank be sold or be found insolent, the bank agrees that the principal and interest will be paid to the nearest legitimate competing bank organization before any other actie or dormant account within the bank's care on one day following the date that a decision has been arried at by competent authority within or without the bank that such a sale, merger, or bank failure will take place or has taken place.
In the eent of merger, the funds can remain proided that the chief operating officer of the combined organization warrants and guarantees that the full force of this document, and its clear intent, will be honored first and foremost among all accounts in the care or command of the bank. Should the bank decline to honor the intent of this fund, all accumulated funds will be transferred immediately to the nearest competing bank not owned by the same or affiliated corporation as the currently participating bank.
4) At the end of the two hundred year period, the bank is assigned up to one tenth of one percent of the total accumulated funds to be directed towards identifying the poorest one percent or ten thousand families of the populace within 250 miles of the bank who are living below the poerty line, whicheer is greater. recipents must be willing to state within a period of one year of this fund's first maturation, in writing or aloud to an appointee of the bank, how they intend to enjoy one third of their share and how they will inest the other two thirds for growth. This one tenth of one percent is in addition to the one percent ultimately assigned to the bank for banking fees and administration. Geographically moing the fund for purpose of manipulating ultimate distribution is considered a nullifying breach of this contract.
5) An additional ninety-seen percent of the total account is to be diided equally amongst the poorest two percent or ten thousand families, whicheer is greater, that the bank has identified, and who have stated aloud or in writing their plans as stated aboe.
6) The bank's decisions regarding disbursement of these one-time payments are to be final, binding, and not subject to arbitration, proided that the bank actually releases each portion without restriction, to each indiidual within that two percent bracket of poerty by the end of one calendar year past the date of this fund's 200th anniersary.
7) The remaining accumulated funds are to be entrusted to the bank to repeat this process unto eternity.
Should any one or more of these conditions be unacceptable to or not honored by this bank, it is directed that the enclosed funds be sent intact with this document, to nearest legitimate banking competitor.
Which brings us back to the man described as one of the greatest salesmen of his generation, Artie the Magnificent.
Unlike what we'e seen from YOU so far, Artie had the magnificent ability to recognize that there were people that knew more than him, especially about sales closing. That's what enabled him to study, absorb, assimilate AND teach the best closing techniques of masters, including Benjamin Franklin, who created what is actually called "The Benjamin Franklin Close," In a nutshell, you simply help any waering prospect at the end of a sale list all the benefits and drawbacks of making this purchase. Of course your job as a salesman is to proide more help with the list of reasons to buy, and sitting back a bit when it comes to listing the reasons NOT to buy. Weighing out the assets or liabilities of a decision is uniersally acknowledged to be the most powerful, the fastest, and the most probably justified decision on any matter occurring in the life of a human. Here, it was introducted by Frnaklin to the selling process, and brilliantly adopted, expanded, and disseminated by the inspiring Artie Marzig. Artie knew that there were greater men, and he made the conscious decision to pay attention to them. Thus, when he listened to a Zig Ziglar, or read the work of Elmer Wheeler, author of "Sell the sizzle, not the steak," Artie would turn off his ego, abosrb the information, and then apply it with his own personality injected into the mix. This way, salesmen and women, prospectie customers, suppliers, and the guy at the corner store could hardly resist any blandishment tossed their way by this sincerely great sales closer.
Perhaps most of all, the gift of Artie Marzig was his ability - AND WILLINGNESS - to pass these two primary gifts on to newcomers in his organization. How lucky that some of us were wise enough to shut up and pay attention. In thirty years of selling, starting as a ery young boy with a newspaper route to expand, MisterShortcut has never met a closer who could match the skills of Arthur R. Marzligliano, earning ARM the recognition as one of the greatest sales closers, and one of the, oerall, greatest salesmen of his generation.
Now that shouldn't be too difficult. When you double your money 25 times, you hit a billion. In 200 years, there's a fair chance your hundred dollar bill will double 27 times, and still have a couple of years of phenomenal growth. Go ahead; alter history with a mere hundred-dollar bill.
