Know Thyself…

Read the Shameless Shamus Sales Blog!

OK. I had a wonderful treat this morning in having my mentor Shamus Brown write a review of me and The DEW View...   This is an even bigger reward than having ALL TOP select my blog as a top resource on the web for Motivation and Sales...

As I have said previously, (over and over again... and, NO, I am not getting paid) Shamus was one of my best personal investments!  It changed my life.

By the way, one of the earliest "skills" I was trained was in understanding WHY I did the things that I did (my Confucius moment of the day...).  AND... after reading dozens of books on sales and doing speaking engagements and writing my own material I still have to argue that the best book on sales is David Sandler's You Can't Teach a Kid to Ride a Bike at a Seminar...

It works...  And frankly, at this point in my 29 years of living and fighting to be the best that I can be... I don't want to read bullsh*t just because it makes me feel better about my inadequacies...

I want to conquer my weaknesses, pulverize my competitors, and master my corner of the universe in a way that leaves a lasting mark on the world.  And I don't think I need to apologize for wanting to do that...

"Why do we feel like we need to trend toward mediocrity so that we fit in with the crowd..."  (DEWism)

And before you start saying, "Not me"...  let me share that this desire to "fit in" is part of human nature.  To beat it, you need to understand it and allow it to fuel your passion for attaining excellence.  I take this idea of fitting in one step further:

"I see no reason to be anything less than EXTREME..." (DEWism)

AND... I fully understand that that mindset has definite consequences.

  • The "crowd" will RARELY UNDERSTAND me and there remain skeptical or critical of what I am...
  • The people around me will not have the same level of PASSION that I do...
  • Regardless of failure or success, I will always be a WINNER in never backing down...

That's all for now...
