Learn to Sell

“Remember, people don’t buy for logical reasons. They buy for emotional reasons.” | Zig Ziglar

Every single person needs to know how to sell. If you doubt me, consider the following situations:

The child wants cookies, so she needs to sell her parents and convince them to give her cookies. The sales pitch is usually pointing at the cookie jar, screaming to get attention (constant promotion) and not stopping until she gets the cookie (closing)!


“Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.” | Booker T. Washington

Great leaders know that significant accomplishments require exceptional teams. In business, we often talk about the importance of teams, but we don’t always take the time necessary to truly plan an effective team.

How to Build a World-Class Team:

Understand the Risks and Mitigate Them

“Experience is a truer guide than the words of others.” | Leonardo da Vinci

There is no such thing as risk-free living, but if you follow the principles of The 1% Solution, you can reduce risk and improve your probability of success.

If you are about to embark on a certain project or a venture, list all the significant risks associated with that project. For most projects, whether it is professional or personal, there are usually about five to
10 risks in the medium-to-significant range, with only one or two being the most significant risks.

Focus on Your Strengths, but Know Your Weaknesses

“You can journey to the ends of the earth in search of success, but if you’re lucky, you will discover happiness in your own backyard.” | Russell H. Conwell

Forget Multitasking - Focus!

“Concentrate all your efforts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn through until brought into focus.” | Alexander Graham Bell

We are inundated by numerous tasks throughout the day, big and small, important and non-important, urgent and non-urgent. Some are our own priorities, while many are the priorities of others. We can easily become overwhelmed by these tasks and risk becoming ineffective or stressed, and make mistakes. Many of these tasks contribute very little toward our achievement of big goals.

Habit 27 - Do Work You Enjoy and Follow the Money

“The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.”  |  Mark Twain

Habit 28 - Create a Unique, Valuable and Enduring Skill Set

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”  |  Albert Einstein
Progress has always been achieved as the result of the specialization and division of labor. We succeed each day because we focus on a single task that creates value in the marketplace and generates the income we need to acquire necessities of life (food, energy, shelter, transportation), which were produced as a result of the specialization of others. It’s specialization that creates value. The more valuable your specialization, the higher you will be compensated.
