Socrates Method


Socrates generally applied his method of examination to concepts that seem to lack any concrete definition; e.g., the key moral concepts at the time, the virtues of piety, wisdom, temperance, courage, and justice. Such an examination challenged the implicit moral beliefs of the interlocutors, bringing out inadequacies and inconsistencies in their beliefs, and usually resulting in aporia.

You can read a lot about Socrates Method

Socrates didn’t sell anything. What we can learn from him. We are going to make his method as simple as possible. The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it!

You can’t win an argument.

The secret of Socrates.

 Socrates, “the gadfly of Athens”, was one of the greatest philosophers the world has ever known. He did something that only a handful of people in history have been able to do. He sharply changed the whole course of human thought, and now, 2500 years after his death, he is honored as one of the wisest persuaders who ever influenced this wrangling world.
When you are talking with people, don’t begin by discussing your differences. Rather, begin by discussing the things on which you agree. Keep emphasizing, if possible, that you are both striving for the same end and that your only difference is one of method and not of purpose.
Get the other person saying “Yes, yes” at the outset. Keep the other person, if possible, from saying ‘No.’
A ‘No’ response is a most difficult handicap to overcome. When a person has once said ‘No’ all of his or her pride of personality demands the person to be consistent and NOT reverse by saying ‘Yes.’
Did Socrates tell people they were wrong? Definitely not.
He was far too adroit for that. His whole technique, now called the “Socratic method”, was based upon getting a “yes, yes” response. He asked questions with which his opponent would have to agree. He kept on winning one admission after another. He kept on until, almost without realizing it, his opponents found themselves embracing a conclusion they would have bitterly denied a few minutes previously.
Get the other person saying “yes, yes” immediately.
Socrates wasn’t that simple guy. He used very general definitions (concepts) to prove a person that he (or she) doesn’t understand them.
In Plato’s early dialogues, the elenchus is the technique Socrates uses to investigate, for example, the nature or definition of ethical concepts such as justice or virtue. According to Vlastos,[5] it has the following steps:
  1. Socrates’ interlocutor asserts a thesis, for example “Courage is endurance of the soul”, which Socrates considers false and targets for refutation.
  2. Socrates secures his interlocutor’s agreement to further premises, for example “Courage is a fine thing” and “Ignorant endurance is not a fine thing”.
  3. Socrates then argues, and the interlocutor agrees, that these further premises imply the contrary of the original thesis; in this case, it leads to: “courage is not endurance of the soul”.
  4. Socrates then claims that he has shown that his interlocutor’s thesis is false and that its negation is true.

PS:  – Get the other person saying “Yes, yes” at the outset.

  • When you are talking with people, don’t begin by discussing your differences.

I wanted to simplify Socrates method.


Agatha Christie advice not to procrastinate

We’ve all read stories about people taking too long to make decisions and find that, regrettably, opportunities have been lost. Most of them relate to their personal lives e.g. If only they’d bought something when it was on sale, If only they’d asked her out before she started dating their best friend, If only they’d told someone how much they loved them, before it was too late. (see offer at the end of the post)

Author Agatha Christie wrote   “One doesn’t recognize the really important moments in one’s life until it’s too late.” 

We must also remember that this can and often does apply in business.

I want to be clear, I’m not talking about missed opportunities. It’s not worth dwelling on what might have been, that type of regret can eat away at you.  Atari founder Nolan Bushnell turned down an opportunity to invest $50,000 in seed money in Apple.  Had Bushnell said yes, he would have owned a third of Apple, a company that is today valued at about $480 billion. That’s a missed opportunity.

What I’m talking about is knowing you should take action and for whatever reason, you just keep putting it off. In business, this may concern reinventing your company, whether it be a branding, reacting to new competition, refining operations, installing up-to-date technology or recognizing an untapped market. It’s especially tempting to stall when your company is at the maturity stage and enjoying success.

There are many excuses for doing this. Perhaps it feels more comfortable to stick with certain employees, perhaps you’d rather not spend money on marketing or you feel you might just be making changes for changes sake. Whatever the reason, it’s good to re-evaluate, from time-to-time.

You don’t want your company to be pushed out of the market by one that is hungrier and ready to be innovative. You can’t afford to let your business stagnate as this will affect your image not only with your customers, but also with employees who value a challenge and have the energy to move the company forward.

Of course, in order to take the right action, a company needs foresight and employees need to be encouraged to share ideas and be asked for input, on a regular basis. If, however your company is open to this idea, you must be prepared to act. Otherwise those same employees may feel their input isn’t valued and you could miss out on an idea that could be transformative in boosting efficiency, sales or several other areas of operation.

How to find your online business?

Answer: Find real person, with proven history of success and the one who gives you inspiration, then join his team or personally if you are lucky enough. (see picture above – I had a chance to speak with both of them).

You can find a lot of these titles in the internet. Who can you trust? Titles are similar, but there should be a real person standing behind it. Don’t do this personal mistake to join first flash object with attractive title – that’s not enough.

Successful entrepreneur approach

This one mistake that is HURTING your success. (replay of webinar with online millionaire Shaqir Hussyin)

<<<                    >>>

Let me ask you a question:

How do some marketers build their lists to 1000s to 10,000s of subscribers and pocket $1000+ per day while others simply huff and puff to make even make $1000 in profits?

Wanna know the secret?

Yes, there is a specific strategy involved in achieving these
results.

By the way, let me tell you that $1000 per day is NOT EVEN remotely the top end results in our industry.

I personally do 20 TIMES that amount per day easily.

So…$1000 per day is TOTALLY possible.

I have cracked it.

My clients and students have cracked it.

No biggie.

So coming back to the question – how do you do it?

Simple.

Most marketers MAKE THE MISTAKE of thinking that their one and only goal is to sell the PRIMARY product they are promoting.

Their approach is

Traffic –> Build List –> Promote primary product

Successful marketers don’t think that way.

They focus on ONE KEY ASPECT which when you get it right ensures your success even if you screw up everything else.

That one key aspect is nothing but the ART of recovering your adspend as soon as possible.

I will elaborate this concept.

Let’s say average marketer spends $1000 on traffic to get
500-1000 leads.

He would probably focus on selling his primary product to his leads to recover his money back as well as turn a profit.

This method may or may not succeed (political correctness aside, it usually flops).

Successful marketers on the other hand sell a simple valuable LOW PRICED product ($7 – $37) to their leads and make a few sales of these low priced products right away.

People buy these products right away because there is lesser
buyer resistance for lower priced products that solve specific
problems.

These low priced products are called TRIP WIRE OFFERS.

Its usually a simple video training about a particular topic.

So here’s how it works:

Successful marketers spend $1000 to get 500-1000 leads.

Their subscribers immediately buy the Trip Wire Offers which helps them make back $300- $500 immediately.

So this means they have made back 30-50% of their adspend
immediately.

But wait it gets better.

The trip wire product is designed to do 2 things:

1. Provide massive value to the customer

2. Automatically sell the customer on the next product (which is called Front End Offer which is likely to be around $97 – $197).

So customers get awesome value when they consume the Trip Wire Offer and the content inside that training sells him on the need to get the next course where they will get even more value.

End result: They buy the higher priced front end product ($97 – $197).

This results in more revenues ($500-$750).

So totaling everything

Ad Spend To Generate Leads – $1000
Sales From Trip Wire – $300 – $500
Sales From Front End Offer – $500-$750

This means successful marketers

1. Got 500-1000 leads on their list
2. Made  make back their adspend money within a few days
3. Now they are free to promote their PRIMARY product (and all revenues from now on are pure PROFITS)

And the most super important part is that they can reinvest that initial adspend ($1000 in this case) again to get more and more leads and start building their list (virtually for free).

Endless leads. Crazy revenues. Windfall profits.

How’s that?

Successful marketers follow this approach

Traffic –> Sell relevant trip wire and front end offer to
recover money –> Sell whatever else you want (pure profits)

And this is EXACTLY HOW many of us go from $1000 per day…then $10,000 per day and beyond.
