An ideal way to help people: show them how to 'disentangle' the energy and power they, naturally, possess.

Energy & Natural Talent: 2 things we all possess.

But,  we rarely experience people helping us put those 2 things to best use.

Be the exception...help people disentangle the energy wrapped around their Talents.

 

About Influencing Powerful People - #3

Talking About Influencing Powerful People - here's another Dirk Schlimm quote:

“What makes these geniuses so powerful is not ground-level expertise or vision. It is the fact that they have both; they are equally capable of and comfortable with micromanaging and dreaming up a large-scale, big-picture vision.”

Sales people should select heroes, learn from them, and emulate their talents & strengths.

I see better ways of approaching Sales.

For example...

Sales people can and should learn from ‘heroes’...as many as possible. First, ask the question – Is this person a hero worth studying? Consider - WHY is this person a hero? Because of vision?, goals? resilience? quick wit? personal magnetism? Then learn the details about those person's most-admirable qualities/strengths, select specific stories that capture the admirable qualities, carry those stories in mind, and draw upon them when the going gets tough.

The more you use your talents the harder it is to wear them out.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We struggle when we don't use our Talents...many of us accept that struggling lot in life...and some of us embrace struggling as the starting process that allows learning and growth.

Yet, few of us struggle to use up our Talents.

Isn't that unfortunate!

 

Intrinsic Goals feel right...they align with our talents & strengths...they inspire & energize us.

Intrinsic Goals mesh with life purpose, mastery of task, and self-actualization.

Naturally, intrinsic goals align with talents and Strengths.

And, in contrast to extrinsic goals, intrinsic goals tend to broaden rather than restrict experiences.
