To stand out from the pack and be successful you must have the initiative to be a self-starter, to set goals, manage your time, and go all out to sell your product or service to the general public.
It has been proved that the winners in this game of salesmanship are comfortable approaching strangers, are secure in their self-esteem and anxious to share the benefits to the prospect.
For some people this can prove to be a challenge. If you find it a bit daunting, try pretending for the first 30 days or so. After a short period of time, it should start to come naturally to you.
Of course, this will be easier if you are genuinely passionate about the benefits of your product or service, and want to share this with other people.
