Have you ever had “one of those days” where you just keep pushing and everything you are doing just misses the mark?

It could be a sign that you need to take a step back, take a deep breathe and let things happen as they are going to happen.

You might even be pleasantly surprised when it turns out better than you expected.

Think about the last time you were asked the question, “What do you do?” Who asked you that question? Did you know that when men meet for the first time this is typically the first question asked?

Our challenge for you this week is to take this question one step further and add – “for others.”

It has been shown that helping others stimulates your brain more than working to earn that really big commission.  It has also been shown that the most successful people truly focus on giving. They give to gain. However, they don’t give with an expectation of return. They are intentional with their giving and in return the business will come.

This is one of the founding concepts of Linkinnati. We are a community of leaders that CARE about our COMMUNITY and give back to those around us.

So we challenge you this week to ask yourself, “What do you do … for others?”

Did you know that when you get a golf lesson you are filmed? This filming gives you an independent eye to get better at your swing. If you want to get better it needs to feel different.
In business, where can we get that independent eye? Could be annual reviews from our boss, but even more so it is the reviews from our customers. What are you doing with the reviews you are getting from your customers? Use the reviews that you were surprised at to make yourself better.

Complain, Complain, Complain

Motivational Minute Oct 3, 2016

Here’s a thought-provoking story from

It takes a disciplined spirit to endure the monastery on Mount Serat in Spain. One of the fundamental requirements of this religious order is that the young men must maintain silence. Opportunities to speak are scheduled once every two years, at which time they are allowed to speak only two words.

One young initiate in this religious order, who had completed his first two years of training, was invited by his superior to make his first two-word presentation. “Food terrible,” he said. Two years later the invitation was once again extended. The young man used this forum to exclaim, “Bed lumpy.” Arriving at his superior’s office two years later he proclaimed, “I quit.” The superior looked at this young monk and said, “You know, it doesn’t surprise me a bit. All you’ve done since you arrived is complain, complain, complain.”

Exaggerated? Maybe. What if you were asked to share two words that describe your life? Your job? Your industry? Would your focus be the lumps, bumps, and unfairness, or are you committed to dwell on those things that are good, right, and lovely?

True or False: All Successful Salespeople are Hard Closers

Motivational Minute Sep 13, 2016

Surveys show that today’s top salespeople seldom spend much time on closing. Instead they focus on finding customer needs, demonstrating benefits and asking for customer feedback.

The professional salesperson, after making sure his client has all the information needed to make a decision, simply asks if they would like to take the next step.
