Many years ago, when I was working as Life Insurance Sales Trainer in one of the largest life insurance companies in the Philippines, aside from the basic system every agent must know in selling I always emphasized self-inventory guidelines on how to deal with a fragile situation since the business covers life, death, and investments benefits. Most often people are afraid to hear the impact of ‘lossing life’ as a subject.
However, the outcomes of checking oneself is also applicable to every career in general. “Know thyself” before going to face every transaction in the trade.
Recently the mirror got dusty, it has never been polished before. Today is the day of evidence, there is a need in self-inventory. Consider the following:
🍏Be expressive, and remember to smile. Look your best. Appearance must be well presented and in one's outfit must be proper and neat. It gives one the courage and confidence, as if one put oneself in the hands of an expert.
🍏Look upon others with compassion, and remember to care. Through compassion, one must expand the scope of love. When there is love there is care. If there is love and closeness among all people, how wide the world and universe would be.
🍏Speak kind words, and remember to praise. This is one of the quickest ways to hold the confidence of others. Anything one speak must be credible. Remember this:"I will speak ill of no man-and speak all the good I know of everybody".
🍏Be of service, and remember to help... When one do this, people will remember him. As the saying in sales goes, "Never forget your customer; never let your customer forget you."
🍏Listen, and remember to identify the need. The importance of being a good listener, showing the other person you are sincerely interested in what he is saying, giving him all the eager attention and appreciation that he craves and is so hungry for, but seldom gets. "There is an art in silence, and there is an eloquence in it too." - Cicero
All of us would profit by uttering this prayer every morning: "Oh Lord, help me to keep my big mouth shut, until I know what I'm talking about... Amen."
🍏Bless others with your heart, and remember to respect all. A grateful person has affection and righteousness. That person has a generous heart. 🏛️
Sometimes you are the toxic person. Sometimes you are the mean, negative person you're looking to push away. Sometimes the problem is you. And that doesn't make you less worthy.
Keep on growing. Keep on checking yourself. Keep on motivating yourself. Mistakes are opportunities. Look at them, own them, grow from them and move on.
Do better, be better. You're human. It's okay.
