Insecurities and worries will not help you sell anything, whether it’s an idea or a product.
To succeed, you need to have high self-esteem. Think of your self-concept as the master program of your subconscious. Improving it will directly improve your effectiveness, productivity, and performance.
If you find that you don’t like yourself for any reason, try positive self-talk. Daily affirmations can help raise your confidence, which will pay off when it’s time to close a deal.
While you’re at it, make sure you feel happy about your job and whatever you’re selling. Emotions are contagious, which means it’s critical to cultivate positivity. If you like your work, as well as your own products or ideas, it will be much easier to persuade others to invest.
