#sales and why it's crucial to be good at it⬇️: .
"One of the costliest mistakes that a lot of people make is that they tend to think of sales and persuasion in traditional terms only, where there's a salesperson closing a deal. So they ask themselves, "since I'm not in sales, what's the point of learning to sell?" Meanwhile nothing could be further from the truth.
Even if you're not in "sales", you still need to become at least reasonably proficient at sales and persuasion. Otherwise you're going to find yourself living a severely disempowered life.
Selling is everything in life.
In fact either you're selling or you're failing.
You're selling people that your ideas make sense, your concepts make sense, your products make sense: you could be a parent selling your kids on the importance of taking a bath or doing their homework, you could be a teacher selling your students on the value of education, a lawyer selling a jury on the innocence of your client, a pastor selling your congregation on the existence of God or Jesus or Mohammad or Buddha, a politician selling your constituency on the benefits of voting for a certain party - in short, selling applies to all people and all aspects of life, both business and personal. At some point in our lives we all have to sell ourselves to someone : a prospective partner, a future employer, a future employee, a future first date and on and on..." #JordanBelfort
