You Can Never Exceed Your Own Expectations

You Can Never Exceed Your Own Expectations

Image source: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/a3/f1/b1/a3f1b1d855b56f152e962c3bc86725c2.jpg

Regardless of your age, gender, ethnicity or even how big or small your dreams may be, self-confidence and self-esteem, coupled with a healthy dose of belief in your potential, are the crucial ingredients for inviting any level of sales success into your experience. No matter how amazing the product or services you are selling may be, you are ostensibly selling yourself. People buy the full value proposition, which obviously includes the products and services, but most importantly they buy the value you the sales professional ads to the offering. The final buying decision is always an emotional one, in which the buyers final decision is based on the value the sales person adds to the deal. You can only bring great value to any sales experience if you believe in yourself and what you have to sell.

You get Branded everyday
We all know that people should not judge each other and that they should look beyond the obvious outside appearance of other people. But unfortunately people do judge each other. Just as products or services are branded as the best, cheapest, Ineffective, good value for money, or unreliable, so too are individuals branded too. They are either branded as winners or whiners, which one are you? The picture you project to the world about who you really are, speaks volumes. You cannot project a self-conscious doubting image to the world and expect people to have confidence in you or the product or service you are attempting to sell.

People Buy your Confidence and Belief
Everybody loves to be around people who exude an air of healthy self-confidence and who believe in what they have to sell. They are able to then see the full value proposition you offer, which includes the product and service you are selling, but most importantly, they can see your quiet confidence and belief in yourself and what you have to offer. We all love to buy from confident winners, who believe in themselves and what they offer. Are you confident and do you believe in yourself and what you are selling, because until you can acquire confidence and real authentic belief in what you are selling, no one will buy from you.

Nature or Nurture
Yes some people are naturally more confident than others, but I do not believe that we are born with self-confidence. I believe that we develop our self-esteem and self-confidence daily, by keeping all the commitments we make with ourselves and everyone around us. The challenge we face when trying to develop our self-confidence, is that many of us were forced to play inferior roles to adults as children.

These adults frequently reminded us of our faults and shortcomings, instead of supporting us to see our strengths and abilities. This has made us doubt ourselves and instead of keeping the commitments we make with ourselves to lose weight, improve our knowledge, and achieve any goals we set for ourselves. We instead doubt ourselves so much, that at the first obstacle we give up, reinforcing our lack of belief in ourselves. This forces us to doubt ourselves even further.

Your Opinion Matters the Most
No one else is responsible for you or how your life unfolds or for that matter how many sales you make or fail to make. It is for this reason that no one elses opinion about you matters. You are ultimately responsible for all your daily actions or lack thereof, so do not listen to the opinion of anyone else, other than as a means of gathering feedback. The only opinion, which matters, is your own opinions and beliefs, which will ultimately inspire you to take action daily.

Conversations with Yourself
Whether you are conscious of it or not, you are engaged in a running conversation with yourself all day. Your thoughts and ideas are talking to you, encouraging you to believe in yourself, guiding you to take positive actions to help you achieve great success or discouraging you by filling your head with all the reasons you may fail throughout the day. It is time to wrestle back control of these conversations and for you to teach yourself how to constantly speak to yourself in a supportive and re-enforcing fashion. You know the value of spending time around supportive people, who genuinely believe in you, praise and reward you. It raises your belief in yourself and makes you see possibility. Try to instil the same qualities into the conversations you have with yourself every day and you will gradually begin to grow your self-belief daily.

Believe in Yourself and your Potential
There is no greater driver for inviting sales success into your experience, than your own belief in possibility and your ability to achieve it. It is seldom, if ever that you will exceed your own expectations about what you can achieve. You can never build or create great expectations, unless you believe in yourself and your abilities. So is it not time to start removing those nagging doubts and to unlock your unlimited potential to become the best person possible, by finally believing in yourself. You are truly magnificent, dare to finally see it.

Write Your (Future) Biography To Becoming Famous By Morning

Write Your (Future) Biography To Becoming Famous By Morning

Image source: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/2c/bc/55/2cbc55cf1e93e30f2cc4aa6c2a641320.jpg

Have you ever truly reflected on your path in life? What you want to achieve and what areas you would like to be successful in?

I'm sure you may have said to yourself a number of times "Gee, it would be nice to live like them, drive a car like that or be famous as they are", but in that context it is often just an emotional reaction to the status of another.

Sometimes you might visualize or have fantasies of a different existence.

Seeing yourself in the house you want or that car you have always coveted. Maybe you can see someone sitting behind the desk as the chief executive of the company, doing the work of the boss and instructing staff as only they would do and that someone, happens to be you.

Maybe it's a holiday with loved ones or a holiday where you meet a loved one?

We all at various times visualize our ideal life. Career, business, wealth and lifestyle even relationships, health and philanthropic pursuits

Now you need to take a moment to truly reflect on these future visions you have of yourself at various moments and bring them all together. Give each substance and make them tangible.

How do you make a reality out of fantasy?

How can you make these 'dreams come true'?

By writing them down.

You are going to be assigned as your own biographer to write a third person account of your future life. The life that you have always dreamed about, you are about to make it real! (For now at least, real in print).

Next write down a number of categories such as career, business, wealth, creativity, lifestyle, relationships, family, health and philanthropic pursuits etc. and number them in order of importance. What you would like to achieve first or what needs to be done before the next.

Now take a weekend, a week a month or longer to put down on paper exactly how you want your life to pan out. Lock yourself away in a room, go camping in the wilderness, a cabin, the seaside, somewhere in solitude where you can meditate and find the path within yourself.

Assign dates to tasks (specific by month and year) so you have a definite goal to fulfill. Always writing in the third person like such:

"By February 2010, Frank will be successfully running his own graphic design business, he easily negotiates a large contract that he can easily and skillfully deliver in the timeframe of..." or "In October 2009 Sarah takes a holiday to Phuket where she has an instant connection with a man and they spend many hours just getting to know each other..."

Continue to write in this style for each category. Be as detailed as possible, close your eyes and place yourself at that very moment. Feel the emotion, experience the moment then write both what you see and feel.

Writing in this manner can have a number of benefits.

Firstly it can save time. Living an experience out on paper will often tell you if it is worth pursuing.

Secondly, by writing it down you are releasing the thoughts from your subconscious and allowing them to take seed in the conscious.

Another benefit is that it gives you a daily or weekly reminder of your ultimate goals. So when those opportunities in life come along to fulfill your path you are less likely to miss them.

Once you have your future biography written, read it once or twice a week, take actions based upon it, react positively to situations in tune with it and head on your destiny to become Famous By Morning!

Why Business Audiobooks Make Ideal Business Mentors

Why Business Audiobooks Make Ideal Business Mentors

Image source: http://davemenzies.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/m3.jpg

Are you looking for a business mentor to inspire and motivate you to success but can't find or afford one? Business audiobooks may just be the ideal business mentoring solution you are looking for to help you grow and succeed.

It's a well known fact that millions of people drive alone to work everyday -- and that doesn't even include those who commute by bus, train or car pool! With the average commute to and from work now reaching over an hour each way, that's almost two months of your life each year spent in transit or sitting in traffic. Just think how much you could improve your business or advance your professional career simply by listening to audio books containing excellent information on how to improve your sales approach, communication and people skills, how to market your business better, ways to improve your customer service, etc. during this time.

With the rising popularity of MP3 players and iPods, and more new cars being fitted with built-in MP3 players (as of this year, almost all new cars are now capable of playing digital audio files), more business people are discovering that music or the news is not the only thing they can listen to while going about their busy day. Now, people can "listen" to business books, business seminars, sales and marketing lectures and podcasts from successful business people while they're on-the-go -- and when they don't have time to read. Hence, the huge emerging popularity of audio books with commuters and business owners.

Today's mobile and "time-starved" business owners, sales managers and sales professionals are discovering that they can download an unlimited amount of information into their brain, learn a foreign language or new skill that will improve their business, and get that competitive business edge while driving in their cars, commuting in trains and buses, or even while standing around in queues.

Most business people love to improve their business acumen via reading and taking courses, but lack the time to do so. This is where audio books can play an important role in their professional lives.

Business audio books narrated by successful business people can act as an ideal mentoring tool for business owners (one specific range of titles that comes immediately to mind are the audiobook versions of Robert Kiyosaki's highly popular "Rich Dad" books!). Imagine all the money you can save on consulting fees and the knowledge you will gain, just by listening to business audiobooks read by business experts.

Not only will you get mentored by some of the best business minds in the world and gain a competitive business edge by acquiring the latest business information listening to audio books on business-related topics, you will also get yourself into the right "state of mind" for doing business successfully.

Just think about it! You arrive at work or at a sales presentation after having been "coached" by a successful business owner while driving or commuting, your mind is immersed in business thoughts and you're most likely inspired by a great business idea or tip you've just heard. You walk into a meeting and you are focused. Your mind is sharp. Your energy is positive and you look vibrant. Your brain is filled with new business strategies and ideas and working subconsciously with these to help you achieve the best results and outcomes no matter what daunting tasks, projects or challenges may lie ahead for you in your busy day.

As a business person, you can now use the amazing value inherent in listening to audio books to gain a competitive business edge over others. You won't have to worry about not having the time or will to flip through the pages of a book. You can now "listen" to business books when preparing to go to work in the morning, when commuting to and from work, etc.

Currently, there are thousands of best-selling business audiobook titles available. If you are at a loss for specific business audio books to get started, here are 5 of some of the best that any business person should listen to:

What's The Main Value Of Combining With Another Person's Business

What's The Main Value Of Combining With Another Person's Business

Image source: http://pediaa.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Difference-Between-Ethics-and-Morals-infographic.jpg

The use of M&A has been a recommended way to grow a business.

Nonetheless, not all businesses want that. And excellent question to ask is, "is growth for growth's sake the only idea"?

There are many compelling reasons endorsing it as the finest technique.

Big organizations are in top positions. Large companies both have better financing and access to new money. In addition, they're able to negotiate better deals with business partners. The gigantic businesses generally can survive the largest business cycles. Often customers think of these larger enterprises as being better suited to supply their needs. Large businesses can withstand their competitors easier. Most of the time, it's easy for them to retain advisers and consultants. New employees are much easier for them to attract and train. Most big companies can give better benefits. And, the list goes on considerably.

Most investors look on the larger companies as being more valuable than smaller ones. Their large size makes for splendid economics. Case in point, they can tackle the biggest projects successfully. These large companies generally have a pile of cash in reserve. Most of the time a big business can expect higher multiple from potential investors.

Let's look at an illustration.

Suppose we have two smaller businesses, one generating $10 million with a profit of $1 million. The second slightly bigger company with a topline of $20 million and a bottom line of $2 million. [willing tovestors] might be willing to invest 3 1/2 million dollars for the small company and in the neighborhood of $7.7 million for the slightly larger business. This assumes that each of these two small companies is priced at a multiple of 3.5 times profits. Earnings are calculated prior to taking into consideration interest, taxes, depreciation; and, amortization. This calculation is generally considered EBITDA. Added together the two enterprises are valued at $11.2 million. That total is the mathematical value of the two businesses if they were purchased separately.

However, when the two businesses are joined together a person would expect a smaller operating cost. Generally on account of of the reduction of duplicate departments and functions. These savings would include items like rent, salaries etc.. So, let's assume a $600,000 overall reduction. This means that EBITDA would increase from $3.2 million to $3.8 million total.

Plus, it's likely the multiple will also increase. The total top line would now be $30 million. The multiple might go up from 3.5 to 3.75 or 4.0. This could increase the total price up to nearly $15 million. That calculates to an extra $3-$4 million. That's a pretty attractive increase and could cause the two owners to join their businesses.

Of course, there are many warning signals connected with M&A's activities even though the extra money is very very attractive. This means it is a wonderful method to use to grow a company and a business' value.

What Makes Someone a Good Decision Maker

What Makes Someone a Good Decision Maker

Image source: https://image.slidesharecdn.com/howgoodpeoplemaketoughdecisions2010-101023192526-phpapp02/95/how-good-people-make-tough-decisions-2010-5-638.jpg?cb=1422644706

Successful business leaders tend to be very observant and are exceptionally good at decision-making. Part of what makes them good at making the right decision quickly is their education and past experiences. A business-savvy executive acts fast, but not without clear intentions and strategic thought.

Your past experiences, direct and indirect, is the raw material you use to make smart, strategic decisions. For this reason, it is very important to be fully vested in all that you do, hear and see. Those who pay attention and live in the present tend to be better decision makers.

If you missed important information in a previous conversation or meeting, dont try to work around it. Go to the source and ask questions. The ensuing conversation will not only fill in the missing data, but it may lead to other insights that would otherwise be missed. Invite an opinionated friend over to strategize. Plenty of great ideas come from thought-provoking conversations. Once you decide to take your idea to the next level, the strategies below can help you turn your idea into a successful venture:

Self Confidence - having a confident demeanor will captivate your audience

Conviction - believing in your message will influence others to do the same

Education - knowing your subject matter as well as your competitions products and services will give you an edge in business as well as the ability to answer pointed questions.

Follow through - it is not enough just to make a sale. Follow through on your commitments and promises. Delivery and service after money has changed hands is key to a happy, and long-term, client.

Even the best decison makers occasionally have to change course midstream. Dont be afraid to re-evaluate when new information is available. If there is too much to risk for the reward, then make the decision not to proceed. If you find you are unable to provide what you promised, partner with someone who can help and immediately provide a time frame to your clients. Having an unhappy client can set back your business and recovery can be very slow.

The competitive business environment in the world has created the need of management graduates. Singapore being one of the financial and business hubs of the world has also become a favorite destination for students. An MBA in Singapore is highly rated around the world and Aventis School of Management Universities in Singapore have been focusing on keeping the course curriculum in tune with the global business environment.

A question which crosses the mind of every student who plans to do an MBA is the return of investment. MBA is an expensive program and many people cannot afford to seek admission in a business school without bank loans. This creates a situation of uncertainty in the mind of students planning to do an MBA in Singapore. Here are a few things which you should keep in mind to understand the co-relation between MBA and return of investment:

Ask yourself, why are you exploring an MBA? Unlike popular belief an MBA may not be beneficial in career growth in each and every business sector and in case of each and every individual. Check out the Aventis School of Management business schools which provide quality education keeping their course fee reasonable. You can opt for institutes like Aventis School of Management which don't burn a hole in your pocket for your MBA program.

There are a few critical factors that you will need to consider in your decision to peruse your graduate Education

Criteria 1: Cost of MBA program
Once you have decided on which program you wish to attend, you will know roughly how much it will cost. Visit sites like www.mbasingapore.sg or www.edupoll.org which offers a comprehensive list of All the MBA and MSc programs available in Singapore. Also explore if the institution offer Financial aid in the form of scholarships and bursaries given by universities or partnering institutions. Most institutions also work with financial institutions such as Citibank, DBS, RHB bank to offer monthly repayment scheme.

Criteria 2: Opportunity Cost of Embarking on MBA
This is the forgone salary while you attend your MBA program. Decide between the pros and cons of doing it Full Time, Part Time or Executive Mode. Analyze if an executive MBA can help you in your career goals. If it does opt for an executive MBA over a full time as you will not have to quit your current job and have regular supply of cash while pursuing your course. Some employers compensate their employees on the expenses incurred in the executive master programs. If your employer bears the expanse for you, the return of investment will be higher compared to a normal investment. Time is one of the most important factor while calculating so you need to make sure that you calculate your return of investment with respect to time, most MBA are 2 years part time, go for accelerate MBA typically offered through American Universities such as City University of New York or Arcadia University which offer 1 Year Executive program, thus accelerating your return of investment by 100%.

Useful Quotes: I think one of the key things it gives you is the right perspective of the future in an ever changing and demanding economic environment. And the condensed one year programme, with the knowledge acquired is an ideal preparation of an international high quality sustainable career. It also gives you an extensive international network - you become a member of the colorful "family" in the world.- Dominik Pfoerringer, INSEAD MBA

Criteria 3: Post MBA Salary Survey
Of course, this is an unknown for you, but thankfully most MBA programs keep track of this information Opt for a good business school while doing your MBA. A degree from an average institute will require the same investment as a good business school but may not guarantee you good return of investment. Based on an online poll by Edupoll.org over a period o 3 years 2007 to 2010, typically 60% of working professionals preferred an American MBA vs 20% for an UK or 10% for an Australian MBA. Doing an MBA in Singapore might prove to be beneficial for you as the course fee is reasonable as compared to business schools around the world. Singapore also offers ready employment and typically much higher Return of investment as compared to other countries within Asia
Which MBA Programs have the best ROI?

Many MBA ranking systems, such as Business Week or US News, include details including pre and post MBA salary, cost of tuition, fees, and expenses, average time to pay off student debt, and other information that will help you determine how much it will cost, how much you might earn upon graduation, and how long it may take to pay it off. With the proliferation of business schools offering MBA, it is no longer the title "M.B.A" that matters, it's the business school awarding it, do not be caught in a situation of penny wise pound foolish, embarking on an international accredited such as Chicago, INSEAD, City Uni of New York, Louisville or UCLA- National University of Singapore will reap you much higher return in long run.

Useful Quotes: We are changing faster than ever in today's business environment, what works for us today might not work tomorrow. That is why it is extremely important for me to commit to learning, we must learn faster than our competitors and customers and the market in general. I believe everything in the business world boils down to marketing. Marketing is the process of meeting consumers' needs on a win-win basis. There are a lot of new theories, new applications, and that is why I want to learn from the very best.

Is an MBA worth the investment?
An expensive program like MBA should guarantee you better prospects in your career both in terms of monetary growth and in profile. If you aren't able to recover the expanses on your MBA course within 5 years of completing the course it isn't a great return of investment. So make sure you take all aspects into consideration to calculate return of investment. Return of investment is an important factor for students to consider while pursuing an MBA. The course being expensive most students need to have good career prospects after completing it. So consider schools that offers career coaching and career placement services when deciding on your institution of choice. Business school such as National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University, Aventis School of Management and Insead currently offers the most comprehensive career advisory and support services.

What is Consulting?

Consulting is a process followed by specialist experts who have a wealth of business and management experience, to identify structural and organisational areas of concern, ascertain their causes and develop solutions to overcome them.

Management consulting is a discipline and profession which covers the totality of change affecting an organisation and could produce solutions for problems ranging from a loss of market share to bottlenecks in production, from a lack of customer confidence to inappropriate management structures.

Training consultancy is an implicit part of organisational development and looks at using learning and developing solutions for skills gaps or skills weaknesses within the organisation's workforce.

Financial consultancy is a discipline followed by financial experts who are able to examine the financial sector of the organisation, identify areas of weakness and structure solutions to overcome those areas of weakness.

The Consultancy Process

In the first instance the consultant is reliant on the management team recognising that there is a problem which has to be solved. When there is a problem which the management team do not recognise it as such, that in itself is a problem.

Sometimes the consultant has to look very hard and asked quite pertinent probing questions to be able to find the real underlying causes for the manifested problem areas.

As you may appreciate this can be quite difficult on occasion, especially when there are unreceptive line managers, or people who are seeking to preserve their power base by telling you what they think you want to hear.

Through asking the appropriate questions the consultant is both trying to identify the real areas of concern, established a rapport with the client, as well as her own credibility. All of the qualifications under the sun will have brought the consultant will and it is only their skills, experience and knowledge which will take them forward.

Once an understanding is obtained the customer will produce a specification document which will outline the problem areas, present one or more solutions and make a recommendation. The consultant will have developed enough detail within each of the solutions presented for the client appeal to make a decision. And that decision will be required before any progress can be made.

There are two types of management consultancy. The first type focus on the strategic picture and on producing what they see as the solution. They do not take any part in the implementation and evaluation of that solution.

The second type are able to take the solution in which the client has agreed, advice on its implementation, or where required implement it and then participate in the evaluation.

Both types of management consultancy have their merits and are keen to add value to the client organisation.
