When I was in sales I learned an important lesson. “If you don’t believe it, you’ll never get your customer to believe it either”.
The same goes when you’re building a team to help you accomplish your dreams. People have to see the fire in your eyes! They have to hear the passion in your voice. You have to make an impression! Your actions have to follow suit. They have to be bold and daring. They have to tell people that life doesn’t determine anything for you. You know what you want and what you’re about, and you’re getting yours no matter what life throws at you.
You’re the center of the universe. You don’t care how that sounds because your responsibility level is high, and your respect for others is in.
People will follow your conviction, not your words! It’s the only way to move them. People want to be inspired. They want to believe in something. The only way to get people to believe is to show them.
You can’t argue with behavior. You do what you do.
Do it with conviction!
