Is It Wise To Convince And Sell?

is it best to convince and sellNone of us like selling, but so many of us have to. The question that is on my mind for this post is one that is relevant for most circumstances. Is it really wise to “convince and sell” or is it better to just sell to people who truly WANT what you have to offer rather than trying to convince them they want it?

This “convincing” is fed by desperation. How often do you see or hear “buy my stuff” or “join this fantastic money maker” or “you NEED this”? So many are DESPERATE for a sale. Too many people have the message you NEED this or that shiny object and this is where to get it. Why is this? Because they have not Continue reading

Learn The Game, Then Be The Best Player.

Play the game and be the bestHere we are at part 10 of 10 in the series of articles covering the principles of the great Albert Einstein.

I will be talking about learning about your niche and then going out and crushing it!

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” ~ Einstein

This statement can be based on so many things in life, ranging from sport to business. The best teams mostly win the most prizes, but this doesn’t mean that the team is full of the very best players. There is more to a team than just being the best individual. This, of course, doesn’t mean that the best teams cannot contain the best player of all. That could be YOU in your chosen field as long as Continue reading

Knowledge Comes From Experience

experience leads to knowledgePart 9 of 10 based on the principles of the great Albert Einstein.

Einstein’s own thoughts on knowledge can be based on his quote:

“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

Not sure if I agree 100%, but experience leads to the vast majority of knowledge. In my own experience, I have found this to be true to a very high Continue reading

When You Create Value Success Will Follow.

Success follows great valueHere we are at Part 7 of 10 of the “Einstein series”. All based on the famous quote:

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value”.

It’s said these days that one is paid by the value one gives out to the marketplace. The more value you offer to people and the more you can show that you have the solution to problems, the more likely you are to be rewarded.

As online marketers we see and give so much away for free that sometimes the perception is that there is no value to what is being offered. After all, FREE means nothing is being PAID, so how is there any VALUE in it?

A dilemma I’m sure, but one thing is certain Continue reading

Be Prepared To Make Mistakes.

A mistake made is naturalWelcome to part 5 of 10 on the principles that Einstein based his life on.

It’s a well known fact that we all make mistakes, but are you prepared to actually make mistakes in order to move forward in your business and life?

Einstein said “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

People make mistakes all the time, but we hate to do that don’t we? Making a mistake leads to one emotion that we all want to avoid – FEAR! If we are to move forward and make the best life and business we can, then it’s inevitable that we make mistakes at some time in the process of living and working. How we deal with it makes Continue reading

Bold statement, but something I believe in.

Welcome to part two of ten lessons the great Albert Einstein lived his life by. On this subject of perseverance he said: “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

When this was discussed and shared in the mentoring group I am a member of, the statement made was that “perseverance is priceless”, which it absolutely is. When you are looking to make improvements in your life and business, you need to persevere towards your goals, but if you can add persistence in taking the right actions Continue reading

Be Like Einstein And Follow Your Curiosity

This is part one of a ten part series based on lessons that the great Albert Einstein lived his life by. This subject was discussed in a mentoring group I participate in and thought it good to share. I hope to show how you can take advantage of these lessons to help demonstrate the genius that you have inside you too.

Einstein didn’t consider himself a genius. He did, however, consider himself curious saying “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious”.

Do you follow your curiosity like Einstein did, or Continue reading

Many of us are striving to have success in our lives and yet it seems futile to some to even think it’s possible to change your life for the better. You struggle from day to day to make a living and yet you are “stuck” where you are.

This is true for very many of us, but does it have to be this way?

I don’t think so, despite me having had many of the same feelings as a lot of you that I am constantly working for no real reward. Then I came to realize something, Continue reading
