The older I get the more I hear successful people talk about the importance of being able to sell. I probably heard about it when I was younger, but didn’t pay much attention to it as I felt it wasn’t important.

What I’ve recently become aware of is how often we are selling other people throughout the day. I’m not necessarily referring to actually selling them a product, but more along the lines of selling our ideas.

Whether it’s selling my wife on an idea of where we should go on our next vacation to selling my teenage son on the idea of hard work and persistence when it comes to achieving any goal you’ve set forth.

There are more times than not throughout our day when we’re selling. Why not master a skill that is often overlooked yet has the potential to take far beyond.

Selling. Something to think about.
