“Our success in all walks of life depends very largely
on the art of selling.
For in order to achieve success, we must all sell,
regardless of our calling.
“A politician must sell his way into office.
Salaried persons must sell themselves into a job.
A clergyman must sell his sermons to
The lawyer must sell the merits of her client’s
case to both the judge and the jury.
These are examples of salesmanship
through which people sell intangibles.
“Any form of effort through which one person persuades
another to cooperate, is a form of selling.
“If a person achieves a high station in life, it is
because he or she has acquired high levels
skills as a sales person.
Schooling, college education or brilliance are of no avail
to people who lack the ability to attract the
cooperation of others, and thus create opportunities
for themselves.” – Napoleon Hill.
