The World’s Most Successful People Are in Sales

All my friends and family know how much I love selling. It is a skill and art I developed from the age of 5 out of sheer necessity due to lack of money. I believe it is one of the best and most important success skills.

Today, no job is secure. We are seeing even CEOs being fired and in the near future, Artificial Intelligence and automation will replace even more jobs.

Drivers, manufacturing, travel agents, retail and millions of other jobs will be lost to automation. This is a fact and nobody can deny it.

In such a world, one thing that will always be needed more and more is the skill of selling. Since the beginning of time, the world’s most successful people have sold something or the other. The people on the top are always the ones selling.

Great prophets, presidents, CEOs, HR heads, Artists all have to sell a vision and an idea. Edison was a great salesperson and was a master of selling his ideas and inventions to the public, and to investors. This is why he became so rich.

Successful doctors are the ones with excellent persuasion and people skills. Imagine two doctors with the same level of knowledge and one has a poor bedside manner and doesn’t understand you, while the other is friendly and listens to you. Which one would you go to? I personally hate rude doctors and not only don’t go to them, I make sure everyone I know doesn’t.

Even when it comes to relationships, friendships and people, how you sell yourself, how you behave, and communicate determines your success. Why is it that some people are single and lonely for life? Terrible sales skills.

During my seminars, I always tell people that sales is something all of us do every moment. It is just that some of us don’t know we are selling. Life is about selling and persuading others to do things we want them to do.

Those who master this skill move ahead very easily. In today’s world more than ever, success depends on how well you are at persuasion and sales.

The reason I got into sales at the age of 5 is because this profession doesn’t discriminate. It didn’t matter if I was white, black, or brown. It didn’t matter whether I was a boy or a girl. It didn’t matter that I didn’t have any formal education. It didn’t matter which section of society I came from.

That is the beauty of sales—it is fair and gives a chance to everyone to move ahead in life, provided they are ready to develop their skills and invest in themselves.

The fortunes of men and women, the fortunes of companies and nations have all changed in a very short period of time because of the power of sales.

Even as an author, all my books are “bestsellers”—nobody says they are the best written, even though they are!
