"Tell stories, do demos, and use pictures: The most enchanting people tell stories, do demos, and use pictures to influence and persuade others. They do not belittle or berate. They paint a picture in people’s minds whether the medium is social media, email, in-person presentations, phone calls, or video conferences. There is only one Steve Jobs, but if you want a shot at being the next Steve Jobs, learn to communicate using stories, demos, and pictures." - Guy Kawasaki

[Quote No.51084] Need Area: Work > Sell
"[Everything is relative and can be seen as positive or negative depending on whether it is described and compared with something worse or better respectively - refer gratitude quotes and notes. For example:] Personality traits are like raw material, intrinsically neutral. Classifying any particular trait as positive or negative changes according to the specific way it is employed by an individual in a given situation. If you utilize each trait in its proper time and place, then that trait is considered positive. But if you apply a trait when it is inappropriate, it is considered negative. For example, the positive trait of 'generosity' can actually be negative if it turns into smothering and stifling. On the other hand, the negative trait of anger can be positive when used to fight against evil and injustice. [Part of persuasion and sales is embodying and transmitting the desirable perspectives and emotions about the products and services to as many markets and people as possible and not being discouraged by different perspectives.]" - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

[Quote No.51419] Need Area: Work > Sell
"[A true story - with a message about - Opportunity:] 'Acres of Diamonds' - One of the most interesting Americans who lived in the 19th century was a man by the name of Russell Herman Conwell. He was born in 1843 and lived until 1925. He was a lawyer for about fifteen years until he became a clergyman. One day, a young man went to him and told him he wanted a college education but couldn't swing it financially. Dr. Conwell decided, at that moment, what his aim in life was, besides being a man of cloth - that is. He decided to build a university for unfortunate, but deserving, students. He did have a challenge, however. He would need a few million dollars to build the university. For Dr. Conwell, and anyone with real purpose in life, nothing could stand in the way of his goal. Several years before this incident, Dr. Conwell was tremendously intrigued by a true story - with its ageless moral. The story was about a farmer who lived in Africa and through a visitor became tremendously excited about looking for diamonds. Diamonds were already discovered in abundance on the African continent and this farmer got so excited about the idea of millions of dollars worth of diamonds that he sold his farm to head out to the diamond line. He wandered all over the continent, as the years slipped by, constantly searching for diamonds, wealth, which he never found. Eventually he went completely broke and threw himself into a river and drowned. Meanwhile, the new owner of his farm picked up an unusual looking rock about the size of a country egg and put it on his mantle as a sort of curiosity. A visitor stopped by and in viewing the rock practically went into terminal convulsions. He told the new owner of the farm that the funny looking rock on his mantle was about the biggest diamond that had ever been found. The new owner of the farm said, 'Heck, the whole farm is covered with them' - and sure enough it was. The farm turned out to be the Kimberly Diamond Mine...the richest the world has ever known. The original farmer was literally standing on 'Acres of Diamonds' until he sold his farm. Dr. Conwell learned from the story of the farmer and continued to teach it's moral. Each of us is right in the middle of our own ‘Acre of Diamonds’, if only we would realize it and develop the ground we are standing on before charging off in search of greener pastures. Dr. Conwell told this story many times and attracted enormous audiences. He told the story long enough to have raised the money to start the college for underprivileged deserving students. In fact, he raised nearly six million dollars and the university he founded, Temple University in Philadelphia, has at least ten degree-granting colleges and six other schools. When Doctor Russell H. Conwell talked about each of us being right on our own 'Acre of Diamonds', he meant it. This story does not get old...it will be true forever... Opportunity does not just come along - it is there all the time - we just have to see it." - Earl Nightingale

"[Poem: about choices]

'The Road Not Taken'

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

" - Robert Frost
(1874 – 1963) famous American poet, ‘The Road Not Taken’ poem – about choices.

[Quote No.51588] Need Area: Work > Sell
"[A story - with a message about honesty, trust and credibility:] The Boy who Cried 'Wolf!' - There was a boy who was a shepherd. One day he decided to have some fun at the expense of the villagers. He shouted, 'Help, help, the wolf is here.' The villagers heard him and came to his rescue. But when they got there, they saw no wolf and the boy laughed at them. They went away. The next day, the boy played the same trick and the same thing happened. Then one day, while the boy was taking care of his sheep he actually saw a wolf and shouted for help. The people in the village heard him but this time nobody came to his rescue. They thought it was another trick and didn't trust him anymore. He lost his sheep to the wolf. The moral of the story is - when people tell lies, they lose credibility. Once they have lost credibility, even when they tell the truth, no one believes them." - Aesop

"[A story - with a message about honesty and the dangers of half-truths:] There was a sailor who worked on the same boat for three years. One night he got drunk. This was the first time it ever happened. The captain recorded it in the log, 'The sailor was drunk tonight.' The sailor read it, and he knew this comment would affect his career, so he went to the captain, apologized and asked the captain to add that it only happened once in three years which was the complete truth. The captain refused and said, 'What I have written in the log is the truth.' The next day it was the sailor's turn to fill in the log. He wrote, 'The captain was sober tonight.' The captain read the comment and asked the sailor to change or add to it explaining the complete truth because this implied that the captain was drunk every other night. The sailor told the captain that what he had written in the log was the truth. Both statements were true but they conveyed misleading messages. True honesty requires 'the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth' so the communication is clear and easily understood by all." - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about asking for what you want - in a way that stresses what's in it for them!] Ask, Ask, Ask - The greatest saleswoman in the world today doesn't mind if you call her a girl. That's because Markita Andrews has generated more than eighty thousand dollars selling Girl Scout cookies since she was seven years old. Going door-to-door after school, the painfully shy Markita [Andrews] transformed herself into a cookie-selling dynamo when she discovered, at age 13, the secret of selling. It starts with desire. Burning, white-hot desire. For Markita and her mother, who worked as a waitress in New York after her husband left them when Markita was eight years old, their dream was to travel the globe. 'I'll work hard to make enough money to send you to college,' her mother said one day. 'You'll go to college and when you graduate, you'll make enough money to take you and me around the world. Okay?' So at age 13 when Markita read in her Girl Scout magazine that the Scout who sold the most cookies would win an all- expenses-paid trip for two around the world, she decided to sell all the Girl Scout cookies she could - more Girl Scout cookies than anyone in the world, ever. But desire alone is not enough. To make her dream come true, Markita knew she needed a plan. 'Always wear your right outfit, your professional garb,' her aunt advised. 'When you are doing business, dress like you are doing business. Wear your Girl Scout uniform. When you go up to people in their tenement buildings at 4:30 or 6:30 and especially on Friday night, ask for a big order. Always smile, whether they buy or not, always be nice. And don't ask them to buy your cookies; ask them to invest.' Lots of other Scouts may have wanted that trip around the world. Lots of other Scouts may have had a plan. But only Markita went off in her uniform each day after school, ready to ask - and keep asking - folks to invest in her dream. 'Hi, I have a dream. I'm earning a trip around the world for me and my mom by merchandising Girl Scout cookies,' she'd say at the door. 'Would you like to invest in one dozen or two dozen boxes of cookies?' Markita sold 3,526 boxes of Girl Scout cookies that year and won her trip around the world. Since then, she has sold more than 42,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, spoken at sales conventions across the country, starred in a Disney movie about her adventure and has co-authored the best seller, 'How to Sell More Cookies, Condos, Cadillacs, Computers ... And Everything Else' [which was published when she was fourteen in 1986]. Markita is no smarter and no more extroverted than thousands of other people, young and old, with dreams of their own. The difference is Markita had discovered the secret of selling: As, Ask, Ask! Many people fail before they even begin because they fail to ask for what they want. The fear of rejection leads many of us to reject ourselves and our dreams long before anyone else ever has the chance - no matter what we're selling. And everyone is selling something. 'You're selling yourself everyday - in school, to your boss, to new people you meet,' said Markita at 14. 'My mother is a waitress: she sells the daily special. Mayors and presidents trying to get votes are selling ... I see selling everywhere I look. Selling is part of the whole world.' It takes courage to ask for what you want. Courage is not the absence of fear. It's doing what it takes despite one's fear. And, as Markita has discovered, the more you ask, the easier (and more fun) it gets." - Jack Canfield and Mark V. Hansen

[Quote No.51708] Need Area: Work > Sell
"Why Happy Salespeople Are Better Salespeople: It's important to remember that customers are perceptive. When you're smiling, people can sense it in your voice and are often more willing to talk to you. I've been on calls with people who initially were not happy to hear from me, but warmed up to my friendliness and ended up converting into a valuable sale. In fact, researchers [in Social Contagion Theory] have found that happiness is contagious. A recent study published in 'Statistics in Medicine' indicates that not only can happiness spread from one person to another, but it can also spread up to three degrees beyond that relationship - to friends of friends. Nicholas Christakis, an author of the study and professor at Harvard Medical School explains, 'Everyday interactions we have with other people are definitely contagious, in terms of happiness.' ...when a salesperson truly enjoys the conversation, it leads to a more natural selling proposition and ultimately more success. ...Happy salespeople convert more leads and are generally more successful because the people on the other line actually want to talk to them. They are more engaging and talk about the benefits of a product more than an unhappy salesperson does." - Becca Martin

[Quote No.51924] Need Area: Work > Sell
"[A story - with a message about the need for skepticism, careful investigation, questioning and evidence before making decisions and judgements lest silly or tragic mistakes are made:] Death of a Hero - The accompanying illustration tells a story my mother told me as a youngster. Don't be hasty, especially when angry. Weigh things carefully before you strike. When your blood pressure gets up, count ten. 'School Thy Feelings, Oh, My Brother' is one of the best bits of advice ever given. Beware of mistakes made in taking too seriously circumstantial evidence. Think before you act. Don't forget that truth is very often stranger than fiction. This trapper's wife was brought to the Alaska wilderness. She was cut down by death. Their child was about two years old. To go out in the woods in the course of this trapping, the trapper had sometimes left the child for a few hours in the care of their faithful dog. On such an absence one afternoon a terrible blizzard came up. The storm was so terrible that he had to take refuge in a hollow tree to save his life. At daybreak he rushed to his cabin. The door was open. His dog who looked at him from the corner of his eyes was covered with blood. The father's blood froze in his veins. Just one thing had happened ~ his dog had turned wolf and had killed his child. He reached for the ax and in a moment the same was buried into the skull of his trusted animal. Like a maniac he scanned the scene. In hopeless desperation he uncovered the gruesome remnants of his cabin. Tipper over, the cracked furniture was telling a story of a battle that had taken place here an hour before. A faint cry came from under the bed. Again his heart seemed paralyzed. There he found his offspring safe and sound. Just a moment of pause to cuddle his dear on in his arms and he was to determine whence the blood on his dog came. The answer came just a second later. The sad riddle was solved. In a remote corner, there it was ~ a dead wolf, his huge mouth showing fangs intended for the baby which his faithful dog had saved. Just a moment of caution and he could have held both his child and his hero dog in his arms. Remorse took over instead!" - Marvin O. Ashton
This story is found in the book, 'Aspiring to Greatness'. The story is similar to the famous poem, 'Beth Gelert, or the Grave of the Greyhound' by the English poet, William Robert Spencer (1770–1834).

'But, officer, I just wanted to say...,' 'And I said to keep quiet! You're going to jail!'

"[A true story - with a message about adding more sensory excitement to what you do for others so they enjoy it and discuss it more.] - Sizzle! Sizzle! - Everyone likes excitement. When people bubble with personal energy, others enjoy being around them. Business firms like to hire a staff that brings zest to the establishment. Some national restaurant chains, for example, train their staff to form an impromptu ensemble and sing 'Happy Birthday' or 'Happy Anniversary' to their customers on special occasions. It produces more than noise. People keep coming back. One restaurant, knowing how people respond to excitement, devised a special plan. When a customer ordered a steak dinner, the chef placed the meal on a hot steel plate. Then, just before the waiter left the kitchen, he would drop an ice cube on the platter. The waiter was instructed, 'Walk slowly to the table. We want everyone to hear the sound of that hot platter.' It wasn't the steak that was sizzling, but the ice. The plan worked like instant advertising. If customers were in the process of ordering, they'd hear that sound and choose a steak. The sizzle produced the sale! Today, think creatively. Ask yourself, 'How can I add some excitement to what I plan to deliver?'" - Neil Eskelin

"[A true story - with a message about increasing credibility by being honest and balanced.] - Admitting Flaws - In the mid-1980's researchers at Cleveland State University made a startling discovery. They conducted an experiment by creating two fictitious job candidates David and John. The candidates had identical resumes and letters of reference. The only difference was that John's letter included the sentence 'Sometimes, John can be difficult to get along with'. They showed the resumes to a number of personnel directors. Which candidate did the personnel directors overwhelmingly prefer? Difficult to get along with, John. The researchers concluded the criticism of John made praise of John more believable. Admitting John's wart actually helped sell John. Admitting real flaws gives you more credibility. A key to selling." - Unknown

[Quote No.52184] Need Area: Work > Sell
"[A story - with a message about failures usually out-numbering successes and that this shouldn't discourage you if you understand that it is not unique to you, but just the way some things are in life.] - The Law of the Seed - Take a look at an apple tree. There might be five hundred apples on the tree, but each apple has just ten seeds. That's a lot of seeds! We might ask, ‘Why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more apple trees?’ Nature has something to teach us here. It's telling us: ‘Not all seeds grow. In life, most seeds never grow. So if you really want to make something happen, you had better try more than once.’ This might mean: You'll attend twenty interviews to get one job. You'll interview forty people to find one good employee. You'll talk to fifty people to sell one house, one car, one vacuum cleaner, one insurance policy, or a business idea. And you might meet a hundred acquaintances just to find one special friend. When we understand the ‘Law of the Seed’, we don't get so disappointed. We stop feeling like victims. We learn how to deal with things that happen to us. Laws of nature are not things to take personally. We just need to understand them - and work with them. IN A NUTSHELL: Because failure happens, successful people ensure they have more successes by planting more seeds or in other words, having more tries and trying for longer!" - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about getting results.] - Results - A minister dies and, resplendent in his clerical collar and colorful robes, waits in line at the Pearly Gates. Just ahead of him is a guy dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans. Saint Peter addresses this guy, ‘Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?’ The guy replies, ‘I'm Joe Green, taxi-driver, of Noo Yawk City.’ Saint Peter consults his list, smiles and says to the taxi-driver, ‘Take this silken robe and golden staff, and enter into the Kingdom.’ So the taxi-driver enters Heaven with his robe and staff, and the minister is next in line. Without being asked, he proclaims, ‘I am Michael O'Connor, head pastor of Saint Mary's for the last forty-three years.’ Saint Peter consults his list and says, ‘Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.’ ‘Just a minute,’ says the preacher, ‘that man was a taxi-driver, and you issued him a silken robe and golden staff. But I get wood and cotton. How can this be?’ ‘Up here, we go by results,’ says Saint Peter. ‘While you preached, people slept -- while he drove, people prayed.’" - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about persisting past failure to success.] - Don't Be Afraid to Fail - You've failed many times, although you may not remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim, didn't you? Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat? Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home runs, also strike out a lot. R.H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on. English novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books. Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs. Don't worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try." - Unknown

[Quote No.52577] Need Area: Work > Sell
"[When trying to understand why popular culture and quite a bit of sales and marketing is shocking or extreme it is helpful to understand that it needs to grab our attention and the focusing section of our brains - the Reticular Activating System - has evolved to be on the look out for anything unusually good or bad in order to improve our chances of survival. Our memories work in the same way. Culture and sales materials just reflect this.] The point of the memory techniques described in [the ancient text book] 'Rhetorica ad Herennium' is to take the kinds of memories our brains aren't that good at holding onto and transform them into the kinds of memories our brains were built for. It advises creating memorable images [with your imagination]... the funnier, lewder and more bizarre, the better. [Because...] 'When we see in everyday life things that are petty, ordinary and banal, we generally fail to remember them. ...But if we see or hear [or vividly imagine] something exceptionally base, dishonorable, extraordinary, great, unbelievable or laughable, that we are likely to remember it for a long time.'

[Quote No.52611] Need Area: Work > Sell
"There are always ways to 'spin' the facts to support the conclusion that a person desires to communicate. For example during 2013 and 2014 the politicians wanted to suggest the world economy was improving. So when oil price increased in 2013 they said this was due to the world economy improving and so demand for petrol was increasing. In 2014 when oil prices decreased they said this was positive for the world economy as it would mean that less money would be spent on petrol and so more money would be available for people to spend on their other desires. It is not difficult to imagine 'spin' that would have shown that both these prices in oil would have been bad for the world economy. This is why being skeptical is important so that information used to help people choose is as truthful and unbiased as possible." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"[Poem: about facing the adversities - including rejection - as necessary]

'Rabbi Ben Ezra'

...

Then, welcome each rebuff
That turns earth's smoothness rough,
Each sting that bids nor sit nor stand but go!
Be our joys three-parts pain!
Strive, and hold cheap the strain;
Learn, nor account the pang; dare, never grudge the throe!

"[Poem: about the strange theory of reciprocity - 'What you give, you get' and the equally strange theory of expectation as perception - 'What you look for, you see'.]

'The Right Kind of People'

Gone is the city, gone the day,
Yet still the story and the meaning stay:
Once where a prophet in the palm shade basked
A traveler chanced at noon to rest his mules.
‘What sort of people may they be,’ he asked,
‘In this proud city on the plains o’erspread?’
‘Well, friend, what sort of people whence you came?’
‘What sort?’ the packman scowled; ‘why, knaves and fools.’
‘You’ll find the people here the same,’ the wise man said.

Another stranger in the dusk drew near,
And pausing, cried, ‘What sort of people here
In your bright city where yon towers arise?’
‘Well, friend, what sort of people whence you came?’
‘What sort?’ the pilgrim smiled with lifted head;
‘Good, true, and wise.’
‘You’ll find the people here the same,’
The wise man said.

"[Poem: about the power of what you are thinking to be communicated to those around you!]

'You Never Can Tell'

...

You never can tell what your thoughts will do,
In bringing you hate or love;
For thoughts are things, and their airy wings
Are swifter than carrier doves.
They follow the law of the universe –
Each thing must create its kind,
And they speed o’er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.

"[Poem: about the 'thrill of the chase' and the enjoyment of challenge and striving.]

'The Ship That Sails'

I’d rather be the ship that sails
And rides the billows wild and free;
Than to be the ship that always fails
To leave its port and go to sea.

I’d rather feel the sting of strife,
Where gales are born and tempests roar;
Than to settle down to useless life
And rot in dry dock on the shore.

I’d rather fight some mighty wave
With honor in supreme command;
And fill at last a well-earned grave,
Than die in ease upon the sand.

I’d rather drive where sea storms blow,
And be the ship that always failed
To make the ports where it would go,
Than be the ship that never sailed.

"[Poem: about the importance and value of honesty!]

'The Sincere Man'

What gifts of speech a man may own,
What grace of manners may appear,
Have little worth unless his heart
Be honest, forthright and sincere.

The sincere man is like a rock,
As true as time; with honest eye
He looks you squarely in the face
Nor turns aside to make reply.

Nothing is hidden; there is no sham,
No camouflage to caution care,
No ifs or buts to haunt the mind,
Or secret doubts to linger there.

A crystal candor marks his speech,
With conscience clear he goes his way,
He does the thing he thinks is right
Nor cares a whit what others say.

Give me a man that is sincere,
And though a wealth of faults attend,
I shall clasp his hand in mine
And claim him as a trusted friend!

"[Poem:- about the value of a sense of humor, trying not to take anything especially ourselves too seriously and trying to see the unexpected, surprising, silly and funny side of things and ourselves and letting yourself and others smile, joke and laugh easily and often.]

'Sense Of Humour'

What it is, can't just say,
Only know it saved the day,
Drove the gathering clouds away.
Just a twinkle in the eye,
Just a smile instead of sigh;
Lo! the storm soon passed right by
— all through a sense of humour.

What it is, don't just know,
But it made rich laughter flow,
Life took on a rosy glow:
Troubles shrank to half their size;
Sorrow wore a cheerful guise;
Work appeared to be the prize
— all through a sense of humour.

Things were going very wrong,
Flowers no colour, birds no song;
Weakness ousted courage strong
— stepped in a sense of humour:
Put the balance right again,
Saved two people lots of pain,
Brought the sunshine after Rain
— and that's a sense of humour.

" - Wilhelmina Stitch
(1888-1936) Wilhelmina Stich is the pseudonym of Ruth Jacobs Cohen Collie. She was a writer, lecturer and poet - called 'The Poem A Day Lady'. Born at Cambridgeshire, England in 1888, daughter of I. W. Jacobs, she married E. Arakie Cohen while he was visiting England and returned with him to Winnipeg, the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba, Canada. They had one son, Ralph. After her husband’s death in 1919, she was forced to seek employment to support herself and her son. Her friends encouraged her to submit her writing for publication, which led to a successful career as a writer which continued to the time of her death. Writing under the pen names 'Sheila Rand' or 'Wilhelmina Stitch', she had poetry and stories published in the Winnipeg Tribune and the Winnipeg Telegram. In time, she became, in the words an obituary, 'one of the best-known women writers in the British Empire'. She later remarried to Scottish physician Frank K. Collie and moved with him to London, England where she died on 6 March 1936. [refer http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/collie_rjc.shtml and http://content.lib.sfu.ca/cdm/ref/collection/ceww/id/254 ]
