There is a sales person lurking inside you so watch out lest this pest bursts out and makes you loads of money natural way! A few week-ends ago was Memorial day special for people in US. Now you are wondering why I am telling you this. Well it is simple, it did affect me pretty much and I am using this to prove to you how every one including YOU have an `inbuilt` sales mechanism waiting to turn your wheels of fortune. Well So on this weekend we took our special guest- a professor from New Zealand to visit Capilano bridge – The world`s greatest suspension bridge (first built in 1889, this swinging bridge hangs 230 above and 450 feet across waters of Capilano River).
Now I had totally forgotten about Memorial Day... and place was crawling with tourists from neighboring USA. Yes you have guessed it right , I live on border in BC, Canada. Wow silly me... Walking over bridge with my eyes tight shut, clinging for dear life to side rail! For I have a natural aversion to heights and bridge was swinging wildly due to mad surge of tourists....The thought that flashed in to my mind was "even if I go down now, at least I will do so in style".
As expected nothing happened, we crossed over, marveled at wonders of nature, saw tallest tree in world and returned over bridge... This time it was much faster. I did not shut my eyes or cling to rail as much. So here is your first point I am trying to make: Even toughest situation becomes much simpler once you have tried it out and mastered basics:
- The first time round all your imagined fears jump out at you and block your progress;
- Second time you have mastered some of hurdles and are more confident.
- Third time round you are heading towards a pro. OK- OK – so you already know all about it, how does sales come in to picture? What I am trying to prove to you is that you are a `born sales person`. I want you to remove any inhibitions towards word `SALES` and listen up closely. Well so back to my story, this professor from New- Zealand is only just over 40. He has spent over 30 years of his life working towards his research and Phd. He is well published , has authored several books, is well respected and earns a substantial income from his research and sensible investments. Now he has reached a status where he meets his boss– head of university only about twice a year. He loves his work, travels a lot, has no time for a family, does not own a TV – because he does not watch it. He has been to a movie may be once a year or even less...
