I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. I have 5 tips for success that can be used with any situation.
1: Stake your claim as the expert at something.
Be the expert at something, and share your knowledge with everyone. Are you the expert at customer service? An expert at music? What about an expert photographer? What are you an expert at? Stake your claim as the expert, and deliver on it!
2: Give more value than what you’re paid for.
You have heard this before, but it is so true. A sale becomes easy when value exceeds cost. This could be you selling a product, or selling yourself, being in a relationship, or anything where value is being exchanged.
3: Take responsibility.
“This is my fault, I take full and total responsibility for it.” Taking responsibility puts you in control of the situation, ultimately giving you the ability to make the proper adjustments when needed. It is also the quickest way to diffuse an argument, or rebuttal. There are so many people in the world that want to simply pass the blame for stuff, so why not be different and stand out? Why not own the situation, and turn it around?
4: Get out of your comfort zone.
Speaking in public is not comfortable. Leading other people, is really uncomfortable. Trying new things, or going to new places can be uncomfortable. Get uncomfortable. “A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there.” When you start making the switch to do the things that you fear the most, you will find that there is a whole world out there to discover. Just like with working out, you have to push yourself just past your limitations each time you go to the gym. That is how you get stronger.
5: Train Daily.
This is something I’ve very passionate about. I train on Cardone University everyday, it’s the #1 sales training platform in the world. You have to keep your mind sharp. You need to train not just mentally, but physically and spiritually as well. The more train, the more you grow. You do not win the Boston Marathon by sitting around watching Netflix all day. You do not even get to compete in a Tour de France unless you are the best of the best. You need to go out, run, eat right, you get mentally prepared, ride your bike, train every single day, compete in other races to build report, and then you might get a chance.
If you’re in sales it’s no different. You need to get yourself on CardoneU. Train on it daily. Practice, drill, rehearse.
So there you have it. If you deploy at least these 5 things, you will find that you will have more success.
