Six Steps To Successful Selling – Step 1

Step 1 of the key to successful salesWhen we think of successful selling, many think of making a sale of an item or service “at all costs”, but the word “sell” originates from a Norwegian word that actually means to “SERVE”.

Practice Is A Daily Business.

Practice Makes PerfectPractice is something we all need to get to grips with in our everyday business and life. Learning the skills we use is one thing, but practice is how we perfect them. Many will “shy away” from practice because it may remind you of tasks that were seen as chores when a child. This would be more relevant for someone who learned music as an example, but the practice was something “to be avoided” because it’s “boring”. After all, we just want to play that tune, so why do I need to do scales?

Too many times, we as humans look to get to the gratifying point of what we’re doing, but forget that 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:

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.

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

Stop Complaining And Take Full Responsibility.

Stop complaining, be fully responsibleDon’t take offense please. This is just as much a note to myself as much as anything else to take full responsibility for what I do and stop complaining about things that don’t work because I haven’t taken the right action to achieve my goals.

It’s amazing how easy it is to get into a mindset of “you told me this would work” and then go off and not DO enough. NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING comes to us without doing some work. All the hype about the “get rich quick” business has led to many people assuming that it’s easy and all they have to do Continue reading
