You've Been in Sales Since The Day You Were Born

I often encounter people who claim to not be good or comfortable with sales. This reveals a lack of awareness of how virtually all your interactions are sales conversations often in disguise. Do you believe that sales is intentionally trying to convince someone to buy something?

What if... this was completely false and actually a viewpoint very detrimental to your overall success regardless of the field or industry you're in. The truth is that you've actually been in Sales since the day you were born!

How could that be, you ask? Well on the day you were born you successfully sold the idea to everyone around you that you were cute, lovable and adorable. You accomplished this without any language or cognitive ability and with no awareness that you were 'doing' anything. 

As you grew and developed, you learned other "sales techniques" that were also quite natural, instinctual and unconscious. For example, you learned that crying got you attention and other behaviors generated other desirable responses from those around you. 

Bit by bit your sales skills increased but at no point did you ever believe that you were 'in sales'. Isn't this fascinating? 

The bottom line is that you're always selling something. The only question is whether you know what it is, who is buying it and whether it is profitable. 

What would be the consequences of knowing all of these things and being masterful with this process? What impact would this have on your overall success? What if.. your effectiveness in sales conversations had nothing to do with money?

By making all this deliberate, every relationship you have or will ever have, becomes profoundly transformed. Most significantly, your ability to make money in any job, business, industry or human activity becomes elevated to an extraordinary level quickly. 

Sales becomes easy and fun with the added bonus of knowing in your heart that you're sharing your greatest gifts and truly serving others regardless whether they 'buy' anything from you or not.

Is it difficult to make this shift? No! It is remarkably easy and mostly involves recognizing the gifts you already have.  If you'd like to learn how this applies to your business, I invite you to schedule your Life Crafting Strategy Session available at no cost for a limited time.
