How do Wisdom and Selling go together?

Welcome to Wisdom Selling. So if you are like me, you are always wanting to learn more. Well here is the deal about selling. It is the desire to exchange something you have, for something of more value to you. You may have an idea, a product, a service which people will want to pay for, allowing you to make a profit. You have to seek out people who might want it, and convince them it is worth the price you are charging. Or like me, you may just have a little wisdom, and are looking for someone who values it enough to want to use it. My value received in return is the joy of your feedback. So, I am selling wisdom. The cost to you, your interest. I want to help others as well. Visit the links page and shop for some good deals. Any profits on money you spend there will be used by Wisdom Selling to support non-profit businesses in developing their strategies.

Where do I get the confidence to be a 70 percenter?

So I am talking to my wife about walking in faith, and I gave her the example of a professional baseball player, coming up to bat.  In order to get to this level, a player needs to be able to come to the plate believing that he can hit whatever the pitcher throws.  He doesn't know what pitch is coming, but in his mind, he thinks he knows and plans to put the ball in play some way.

A pro ballplayer can make millions by hitting safely once out of every three or four times they come to bat.  The pitcher is focused on getting them out, the umpire may make a bad call, and the fielders are all out there trying to field the ball and get the batter out.

So how does a batter do it?  First, he has practiced over and over again.  You have family and friends who you can concentrate on having conversations with, trying to ask questions that spur meaningful dialog, and paying attention to general topics that are fun to talk about . Also, pay attention to what is going on around you.  Being able to talk about a lot of different topics even at a shallow level, can get a conversation started into an interesting and deeper subject.

Second, he plays real games against real pitchers.  Hey, get out there and try.  Be confident in yourself.  No matter how good you are, you are not going to bat better than 70%, so don't worry.  Talk to people - be real, not fake, but believe in your ability to communicate.  Be clever but not silly.


And when you have, tell me how it went.
