The No.1 Attribute For Winning A Client
Gaining a new client is not always easy. You have to prove that you are ‘the one’ that the customer wants to do business with. You can be trusted, you have the skills, you have the knowledge or you simply have the goods they want. Sure. If only it was all that easy.
You may have studied for years to build the business you now have. You may have worked for endless years to gain the experience you have. You may have also surrounded yourself with amazing people to position your business where it is today. But have you ever spent time to reflect and work out why do people want to do business with you? It can’t all be about your product and services, or your prices or those tangible things. Have you ever considered that your POSITIVE ATTITUDE could be the winning attribute that attracts your customers?
Who wants to listen to someone’s negativity? Who wants to be drawn down with a depressed salesperson that is more intent on sharing their problems with you rather than solving yours? Who likes an employee that has a clear hatred for their business/job/boss and just waiting for knock-off to arrive? Why allow someone to suck your energy out of you?
Evidence shows that positivity increases when workers are given increased flexibility in their roles and more work-life balance. Reports also show bad management and bullying in the workplace can have a damaging effect on employees’ physical and mental health. Another reason to keep a positive attitude, those individuals are less likely to be unemployed and more likely to be physically healthier and live longer.
Changing your attitude can really change your outcomes.
Your attitude when in a positive ‘can do’ state of mind and also bring all these benefits:
- It helps you achieve goals and attain success.
- It brings more happiness into your life.
- It produces more energy.
- Positive attitude increases your faith in your abilities, and brings hope for a brighter future.
- You become able to inspire and motivate yourself and others.
- You encounter fewer obstacles and difficulties in your daily life.
- You get more respect and love from people.
- And life smiles at you.
One of the most important steps you can take toward achieving your greatest potential in business and personal life is to learn to monitor your attitude and its impact on your work performance, relationships and everyone around you. One of the best attributes towards having a positive attitude is your enthusiasm – it’s infectious! It’s an internal spirit that speaks through your actions from your commitment and your belief in what you are doing.
It is one of the most empowering and attractive characteristics you can have. And if you need a boost along to find that positivity in your day, try stepping out for a while and doing some exercise. It is amazing the difference an adrenaline rush can do for your mindset and the impact on those around you.
Those people with a positive attitude never say ‘I can’t do this or that’ they will say ‘can do’ then find a way to make it happen. You don’t need a fancy education or expensive tools to turn your attitude around and become a client attracting business simply by being a pleasure to do business with you. Don’t be a fault finder but a good finder and look for something positive in everything.
