After food, shelter, protection from predators, and procreation, getting people to like you is one of the primary motivations for humans. Everyone is born with primary needs and the motivation to meet those needs is so strong that we would rather die than experience life with none of our needs met.
The need for Connection is one of the four needs that we must fulfil to survive Read the rest of this entry
Just a quick update on last week’s blog.
There will be occasions when you have the perfect prospect in front of you and YOU MUST GET THEM TO BUY INTO YOU AND YOUR PRODUCTS.
This is NOT the situation where you need to polarize – obviously.
This is more likely to be the case when you finally – after trying for some time – get in front of a budget-holding decision-maker. This will be the sale that you want to get, even if you have absolutely nothing in common with your prospect.
In this instance, creating rapport and common ground must be your intention, and for this, you need a) some finely-honed skills, and b) a great strategy for advancing the relationship.
I’ll be dealing with this in fine detail in future articles, but for now, let’s just say that mirroring and matching the other person’s body language IS a tried and tested method, BUT it’s only the start and MUST be done with real skill.

I guess you know enough about me to know that I’ve never worked for anyone else. Call me selfish, but for me, I always had to be in charge of my own destiny. But it’s really not me that’s important – it’s what I can do for others that really matters to me.
Which brings me to this question: Why is formal education designed to empower you to get a job?
We all know that wealth is created – broadly speaking – by entrepreneurs: the guys that ‘create’ jobs. We also know that more and more people looking for jobs is not the way out of this recession.
So my question is: why doesn’t school and university teach us how to create jobs, instead of teaching us how to get jobs?
Surely, if that were to happen, we’d ultimately all be better off!

In reading this, you probably have a question in your head, ‘Can charisma be developed or are some people just born charismatic?’
In my experience, the answer is obvious: anyone can increase their charisma. But don’t take my word for it. Instead, let’s explore:
