Week 18: Selling My Uniqueness

Interesting how we try to emulate other people’s sales techniques.
We’ll spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on training, and read lots of sales books, yet we may learn something that only works for certain others – not necessarily for us.
We can become great ourselves, if we practice what we learn… over and over and over in ways that fit who we are.
Oh, my, “…in ways that fit who we are.” That’s the key…
Our uniqueness.
“…many have attained great wealth and success with only one sales talk, delivered with excellence. Also will I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.”
~Og Mandino, SCROLL IV in “The Greatest Salesman in the World”
We all have our own way of networking with others, our own way of thinking, our repertoire of wisdom we’ve learned through life up to this point.
In looking back on my life, I’ve realized I have never presented my uniqueness when looking for a job, or when doing anything else for that matter.
And what’s particularly interesting, is that for most of my life, I’ve lived outside the box in the way I think and write about unique, and highly interesting business projects.
I worked on myself for years on the sugar, but never thought of marketing my uniqueness.
For the last week I’ve been visualizing and writing on things like speaking to large and small groups about my life-purpose dreams and goals, and it feels great. This uniqueness that I am.
Things are indeed coming together beautifully.
Thank you for reading my blog.

  1. That passage spoke to me, also. It makes so much sense to highlight our uniqueness, but for whatever reason, so many people try to compete with others by showcasing how they are better at something. I think that it is so wonderful that your visualizations feel so terrific! You are on to something!!!

  2. Great post, Noel. I think you have eloquently expressed what most of us are feeling – that we had never given ourselves permission to be unique! Of all the Scrolls we’ve read so far, this particular one seems to hit home.

    “I proclaim it, yea, I sell it.”
