Ten Things That Require Zero Talent

Posted By Mike Leeds, Pro Sales Coaching, LLC, Thursday, October 26, 2017

Sales Tip of the Week from Mike Leeds – Pro Sales Coaching (www.prosalescoaching.com)

Saw this at a client’s office, and had to share…

Ten Things That Require Zero Talent

1.       Being on Time

2.       Work Ethic

3.       Effort

4.       Body Language

5.       Energy

6.       Attitude

7.       Passion

8.       Being Coachable

9.       Doing Extra

10.     Being Prepared

I agree with this list. Some of the items may be redundant, but it stresses how important the things are that we all can easily control when at work. It's also why I'm a proponent of the saying "Hire for attitude and train for skill."

Happy Selling!

Do It Anyway

Posted By Les Taylor, Outperformers International, Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Every now and them we need to be reminded that, in the end, our response to an event – not the event itself – will determines the outcome.

I’ve also seen this truth presented as E+R=O which stands for Event + Response = Outcome.

I recently came across a poem that was reportedly posted on the wall of Mother Teresa’s home for children in Calcutta, India.

The poem goes like this:

 
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Sound advice wouldn’t you say? In facing challenges this week, apply this poem – or the E+R=O formula – and see if it doesn’t change the “outcome” of the challenge.

I’d love to get your feedback on how you applied “do it anyway” this week and hear what some of the results were.
