He has an eighth-degree black belt in martial arts and is a Grandmaster but that is just not everything. He also is the author of 86 books with numerous bestsellers and he is a Hay House author. Today, he is a business inner game coach and he helps entrepreneurs to become more successful. He has been teaching all over the world for the last 30 years and has trained more than 350,000 people and has collaborated with Deepak Chopra, Bruce Lipton, Debbie Ford, Jasmuheen Peggy Dylan, Eric Pearl, and Professor Albert Ignatenko just to name a few. So let’s dive into this interview. I am so excited to speak to Dr. Roy Martina today and we definitely are going to cover how he has felt about sales. How he has strengthened his sales mindset into a sales success mindset. And yeah, how he got started from being a medical doctor to a business inner game coach. So let’s welcome Dr. Roy Martina.
Hey Gorgeous, so excited to have Dr. Martina on and you just had an inside of his amazing, amazing bio. So Roy tell me, when you know you read your bio yourself, aren’t you impressed?
Well, you have to understand my story when I was six and I had got the diagnosis of brain damage and the psychologist told my father and mother that they should not have any hope for me and I was in that room and I still remember it as today of yesterday that I took a decision that it was going to prove this psychologist wrong. So that’s been my journey I’ve been not only proving him wrong but also everybody else wrong and I’ve lived I would say almost like three lives parallel to each other so one as a martial artist, I became a world champion, I have thousands of students, second as a holistic doctor, I have helped many, many people worldwide. And, and the third is, I would say, an author and public speaker. So these are my three parallel lives, all of them could be a full life on itself. So I know some people only have one life, it’s already intense, I’m doing three lives at the same time. So when I look at my bio, it is like looking at three people doing one life together. And I’ve been now adapting and changing because life teaches you more wisdom. So I went from hard working with only one purpose to, to actually unconsciously prove myself now to, I would say, a more gentle, easier going person, and looking more for the flow instead of the hard work. And then when I look at my bio, I can see that evolution in there that will, how I started what I’ve done, and who have become on this journey. And it gives me great pleasure that I can share my experience with thousands of people in so many countries at the same time. And it is and because I’m a holistic doctor, and I now work also with entrepreneurs because in my journey,
I had to learn the commercial side of business, I believe, part of the success is to know how to present yourself. And my most inspirational story of ever read is of Jesus. And, and the story goes as follows that Jesus start to preach and, and so on but there were not a lot of people coming through, and maybe just small groups. So he knew he had to change this marketing. So then he started doing healing. And when he started healing people now he had hundreds and thousands of people coming to him. So even Jesus understood marketing way back then. And that inspired me because it when you’re a spiritual person, and you have a message to share, there’s one thing you need to master as well is, how do I get that message in front of the people that would benefit from my story. And this is the one thing I’m teaching also to entrepreneurs right now. And that’s why I’m so happy to be on your podcast, because, you know, it could make a difference, even if it makes a difference for one person, it’s already worked it for me.
Yeah, Wonderful. Wonderful. And you have come such a far way. And, you know, when, when you started out, have you always been confident in selling your ideas or your services? Or was that something you actually really needed to learn and to shift your mindset.
One of the most important things that I understood now is that most therapists and coaches and, and also some trainers, they are introverts. So if they, they would love to be in a room with them a person, and they’re fine, put them in front of a crowd, or they have to sell themselves, it’s a total disaster. And that’s also the same for me, it was I remember my first lecture that it was giving when it started my acupuncture practice. I was so nervous, I was really freaking out. And if I was not a martial artist, I would run I tell you, I would run I hated to be in front of the public and to sell myself to sell my services was the worst thing for me to do, and, and to learn how to do it in a way that it was, I would say, appropriate for the public and for myself, what has been a journey and until I understood, and that’s why I told the story of Jesus, that once I understood event, the messenger, it’s not about me, it’s not about my ego, it’s not about who I am, it’s about the message that I have to bring to this planet, and the people I’m going to help. So that gave me the courage once they understood that when I fight that part of me to come outside, I’m doing it for the right reason. And the second thing that’s really important, than to come out, become visible, has been the biggest personal and spiritual growth ever because it’s going against everything I stand for. It’s counter-intuitive, it feels bad, it’s not something you like to do. Let me talk about the things I love to talk about. Right, but not about selling or marketing, or those kinds of things. So even taking money from my clients I couldn’t do. So I would have a receptionist, I would send them to them and to deal with the money so I could focus on what I was doing right now.
So that journey of becoming visible, coming out was the much more important journey for my growth, that the journey to become a holistic doctor or to do whatever I’m doing so and, and I really want to stress that for a lot of the people that probably will be in your audience who will recognize being more the introvert not the extroverts that that bridge to develop your extrovert expert part is your biggest spiritual growth you will ever be able to do to do it in a way that it corresponds with your integrity with who you are, what you stand for, that’s a real discovery. And it’s something I would recommend to everyone on this planet who is not an extrovert and a natural salesperson, which we also have. And we always jealous of them, because we look at them. And we just say, I wish it was so easy for me. And it’s not, it never is it, it will never become super easy. But you become more comfortable over time to go out and do it. And then also to be confronted with people who are not, you know, take the against anything, you if anyone wants to sell something to always people who believe he shouldn’t be selling and there’s always people believe if you’re doing anything on personal development, or spirituality, it should be for free. So you get these kinds of, I would say challenges as well on your path and those are wonderful challenges to help you to grow to become the most powerful self you can be.
Yeah, wow. Well, that was so powerful. Thank you so much for sharing. And I’d love for people to see that, you know, those people we are looking up to like, was all the accomplishments that you have, and the business that it was a struggle to get there. Because from the outside, it looks easy. And there’s, they seem to be some natural salespeople. But for the most part, I have never seen like a natural salesperson that didn’t put any effort and were just able to ask for what they wanted, the amount they wanted with total ease. So usually, that is a skill that can be learned and can be embraced.
Absolutely. And, and I think also one big part of, of that skill set is the inner work you have to do about your self-worth, you know, and, you know, if you’ve asked a little bit of money, okay, you can live with that. But when you realize the value you’re giving to people, and that’s where we often don’t, don’t realize that imagine a coach or a therapist, you are actually helping a person to transform the lives to another level. And that’s priceless, there’s no amount of money that can do that. And if you put it into the perspective, or let’s say, or soul travels, we come to this planet to become the best version of ourselves. But we get stuck over and over and over. And think that’s why I see that when I did my research on how many times we on average, reincarnate on this planet, we are over 400 times. And then if you know that this planet is kindergarten, and you get stuck in kindergarten over 400 times it really depressing is depressing. And part of it is that we don’t learn our lessons, we get stuck in an uncomfortable comfort zone. And we don’t have enough pain to move out of it, we have the desire to move out of it.
But if I would look at the amount of money I invested in courses, not so much on my let’s say, my profession, but in the other parts. So to become a speaker, to know about marketing, to know about sales, those were the most painful investments, because it has nothing to do at least that’s what you believe, it has nothing to do with why you’re here. You want to help people, you want to heal people and know you’re learning all these other skill sets that are necessary in order to help more people. But those skill sets you’re learning actually about your soul as well. Because you have to become assertive, you have to believe in yourself, you have to know your self-worth. So by doing things that are not actually your job, or your calling you access support in your calling. Because it’s part of the equation I call it the yin and yang of healing. You know, the healing is Yin and the Yang is going out and tell people or allow people to know what you’re doing. And especially this time of internet, things have become totally different on one part easier. But on the other part also, we have more people now claiming space, screaming allowed becoming experts in a weekend training. So you’re competing with a lot of experts that don’t have even the same experience as you do. But maybe they have a better storytelling, maybe they have a better way of marketing, maybe they are better in sales. So it’s not always the good people that we see you know, you know exposing themselves on the internet, the good people are still a lot of us still hiding somewhere and I not coming out and and and that’s that’s a pity that’s really one of the reasons why I love these kinds of conversations to see if we can help them to make those steps they need to make
Yeah, that’s that’s why I created this podcast because I wanted to people for people with those amazing gifts to actually shine and to show up for the other people that need them. And I know we talked about it a little bit earlier you have this amazing program kick start of the year. So it’s even in three languages German, English, and Italian, so well. And you know, because January is right on the corner ran the program is in February. So if you want to check that out, go to www.christallin.com. And I’m also linking the link that you can choose into the show notes. So you have a place to go when you go to christineschlonski.com/podcast, you’ll find all this information. Um, so Roy, one, one question I would have regarding that shift in your mindset. So when you figure it out, that you can’t get your message into the world if you keep hiding and keep avoiding sales, where did you actually start to do that mindset shift? Because for most people it feels so heavy and difficult and not even doable? Like where can people start?
Well, I think everything starts number one in your mind, your mindset. It starts with understanding that we, we, we have skill sets that can be learned. And it’s not like a lot of people believe some a lot of things are gifts if they, if there’s some people, are natural, easier for them, like an extrovert will be natural, easier to do to do sales. But if you’re an introvert, it’s doesn’t mean that you cannot develop your extroverts side. That’s what I had to do, I have to do to go against my own, let’s say feelings and develop another side. Because I realized in my practice, that if I don’t go out there and explain what I’m doing, number one, people will not come, you know, of course, you have word of mouth with which is great. But I don’t have the patience to sit in a practice for one year before my practice is going to be very successful. I want to start right away. So for me time, you can only spend it once, right. So. And one of the tricks that I’ve used in the past also is to offer people the first half hour for free, so we can see if we are a match for each other or not. And we would have like, what I call patients appreciation days in my practice, where they can bring friends and families we share stories of healing and those kinds of things. So you start first with very little small with telling your story. I think this is very important. And as a therapist, we often make the mistake that we want to tell people we can help everyone you know, and when you say that you don’t get the right people to come because people want to hear specifically that they can be helped.
So everyone who’s watching or listening is always asking what’s in it for me? What can I get out of this? So one of the things I always tell therapists to do is to first choose an area of your practice that you really enjoyed, it gives you a lot of passion, or gives you the best results. For example, in my case, it was allergies. I could guarantee most people with allergies that they can get almost 100% cure, but the world has to know it. So once I went out, I got publication magazines and so on and so on, people start to come with busloads and then and then word of mouth begins. And nowadays we have two types of marketing. One is offline, any of online and not everybody is moving online sometimes is smart again, to move offline to before example, start doing little lectures just for your clients and they can bring friends and you explain certain things that you do. You rent out a space, then for 30-40 people, you start talking, you start learning and you start making offers to the people like you know like most practitioners make the mistake also that they sign up for just one appointment, which is no commitment. It’s better to say, Hey, listen, what I did in my practice was people get 10 treatments and after 10 treatment still be one session for free evaluation. And we would look what did we achieve in these 10 treatments, what are the next steps we need to make in order to get where you want. And 50% of the people may be already done. And then you have a closing session. And for the other people, it might be explaining what still needs to be done. So it is just integrating these little step into your practice. And the other thing is to become visible also on things like Facebook or Instagram where you telling your story. And you can tell stories of your clients that you are successful in helping. And so these are the little steps that we have to make in these times that we can go outside and step by step become also more skilled at the extrovert to side with been sales and marketing.
Yeah, yeah. So, so true. So do you remember the very first thing that you’ve ever sold in your life?
If it’s outside of, let’s say, a practice, the very first thing I ever sold was my martial arts training. And I was then still a 19 years and it was a black belt and it just started my own first school. And in that time, we had to give a demonstration. So you, you put a little advertisement in the newspaper, free demonstration. And I knew and I love working with kids for many, many reasons, because kids are so number one adorable and cute and, and there’s still so easy to form and to give them self-esteem, courage, and stuff like that. So I first time I started, I invited kids on to come and I give with them a little class. And it really showed the parents are happy the kids were to, to, you know, get lessons from me. So there was my first time when I did some marketing and sales and then they had to sign up and then I came up with the idea you have to sign up at least for three months, things like that. So I started early on and with martial arts, it was easier than when it became a doctor, it was your once I became a doctor, it was much more it required more courage than martial arts to go there especially because I was an acupuncturist and that was new at a time. And a lot of there were a lot of negativity about it, they were Christians, and religious people said, it was the work of the devil, all those kinds of things you had to deal with. And for me, that was a real time that was really totally stressed to give a lecture about acupuncture. And then I was so nervous that even my teeth were like rattling, I was like giving really, really like called and my team was going like that I had to go to the toilet like 100 times, and nothing is coming off. The people are coming in and that was getting more and more nervous. And I didn’t know how to start. So it was a nightmare. But, you know, thanks to martial arts, I knew I had to do it and to have the courage even if I was afraid. And it was so amazing that in the end, people give me an applause, I thought there was awful, but he was so happy to get some information. And I had brought my agenda there, so they can sign up for an appointment right away. So I was booked for the next three months. And that reward was worth it. And that gave me the courage to go back again and to do it over and over again. until it became like an uncomfortable comfort zone as still in to give it a speech, I noticed in my body that that there’s still some of that nervousness and with me, I notice if I go to the toilet, and nothing comes out to say, Okay, I don’t have to pee, but I feel like I have to pee and, and now I know in acupuncture, the bladder meridian is uncertainty is insecurity. So that’s why you feel like you have to go but you don’t have to go. So that’s still there. But I know it’s a good sign. It’s a sign that I care that I really want to do my best, it’s a sign that is important, it’s a sign for me that, you know, it might never become easy but I am motivated to do it. And I will never give it up. I mean, it says become my passion to teach. Because when you see people transform that’s even more priceless than money, you get paid for it. But to see the transformation is really to the reason why we do this and, and whether the other side, we need to be able to take care of the money part. Because that’s very important to really be able to live a life that’s comfortable, especially when you give so much so you need to find that balance. And what I’ve learned over the years that what we ask compared to what the normal doctors are, you know, charging for service, it’s nothing. What we ask is nothing compared to regular medicine. And once you understand that you feel more comfortable of asking you a better price because you trust yourself. I think self-trust is everything, you have a gift, you have a skill set and you know, you have to go out now to let people know that you’re there. And what you have to offer them in this time is more important than ever
