A Lesson On Fear And Success From 4x Time Olympic athlete Ruben Gonzalez

Ruben Gonzalez joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to put fear into perspective to show that it should never hold salespeople back.





How Successful Salespeople Have Learnt To Deal With Fear

The show starts with Will asking Ruben what makes him different and what allows him to ignore fear when it would stop others in their tracks.

“Fear is just like a smoke screen. If you dive right through it, it just disappears.”

Will then dives into how Ruben personally deals with fear and how that has had dramatic effects on what he has been able to achieve in his life.

Ruben and Will also cover –

  • The percentage of success which is just down to beating your fears
  • Why fear is just a voice in your head telling stories
  • How books helped Will uncover his fears
  • How worthiness is affected by fear
  • The power of faking of it until you make it
  • The power of having big dreams
