What an Ex-Monk Can Tell You About 'Paying the Price'

Yesterday I told you that when someone pays a high price, they are more likely to benefit from their purchase.

Aside from the research that backs it up, I can also tell you from experience that it’s true.

When I went into the monastery, it was all fun and games. There weren’t many rules at that stage: I was a novice there so all that was required of me was to attend the meditation, be kind, and show respect.

Not very difficult.

After a few years though, I wanted to commit on a deeper level: I wanted to take the vows, and bcome an actual monk.

And those vows, that was a ‘ho bunch of severe restrictions.

Celibacy, poverty, obedience, 7 rituals a day – it was a lot.

And it meant I had to basically give up my normal life, and dedicate my every minute to the common goal.

A tough choice to make, as I’m sure you’ll understand.

But at some point I decided that it was what I wanted, and I gave up everything I had.

Autonomy, individuality, friends, family, money, sex – all gone.

A very high price to pay.

And I must say that to this day I’m grateful and happy that when I resurfaced, my closest and dearest friends were still there for me.

But to the point: by deciding to pay the highest possible price – my life as I knew it – the result was that over time many changes happened to me.

I look back at Martin, age 19, and I see that it’s been extraordinarily beneficial to my life, my mind and my well-being.

I became, literally, a customer of change: I paid the price, and received the transformation.

The reason this matters for you, your business and your prices:

If you take a deep breath, and you raise your rates, you’re doing everybody a favour.

Yourself, because you’ll finally earn what you deserve.

Your prospects, because you’ll filter out people who would buy at a lower rate and who would very likely not be completely satisfied.

And your buyers, because they will be the ones who really – REALLY – want what you offer.

And if someone really wants something, to the point they’re willing to pay a high price for it, they are bound to be happy and satisfied.

The psychology of pricing, in a nutshell.

Today I’m starting LEAP #7, in which I will crack that nut wide open for you, and give you the tools, the mindset, and the exact words you can use to raise your own prices.
