Does hard work really pay off?

A thread. Image
These women work at home as well as on sites so they can afford to feed their children.

Many still fail to do so. Image
These men work hard all day but might still have to mange their meals. Image
This man pulls rikshaw all day but still hasn't pulled his family to better living. Image
I believe you've gotten some idea from the pictures above. Most of those people can not feed their families, but their bosses can.


Doesn't hard work pay?

Yes! It doesn't. Hard work alone can't get you anything.

Other factors must be considered.

What are these?
1. Specific Knowledge: Knowledge that you cannot be trained for. If society can train you, it can train someone else, and replace you. - @naval
2. Upgrade yourself: Believe me when I say most of those in the images above are struggling to get a job now. They filed to upgrade themselves and are being replaced by machines.

Machines have come to stay, if your job can be done by a machine, you are playing with unemployment.
3. Market demand: People often say, “follow your passion, you will get success”.

No, if there is no market demand for your passion, you can't get anything from this.
4. Vision: The world is changing fast, think of something that can withstand the test of time. Use knowledge acquired through past data to try and predict future demands.

Acquire these things first, then use your hard work.

Success will be yours.

How to be a sleazy sales person

A thread...
Turning one-time clients into repeat customers comes down to two things:

1. Providing quality service that offers solutions to client’s needs

2. Maintaining a relationship that keeps your name on their mind so that you are the first person they come to when they need help
Above are things you should do.

Now, below are things you shouldn't do.

1. Your pitch is not more valuable than the client’s time.
Just like you, clients have a lot to do and very little time to get it all done.

If he has 5mins to talk, make your pitch in 5mins

The world will put countless obstacles in your path but none will be as big as the ones you create for yourself.

Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Success.

A thread...
Simply put, self-sabotage is when your logical, conscious mind (the side of you that says you need to eat healthily and save money) is at odds with your subconscious mind (the side of you that stress-eats chocolates and goes on shopping sprees)
1. Understand self-sabotage.

Self-sabotage is when we do something that gets in the way of our intent, or of our bigger dreams and goals.

We want something, but somehow we never accomplish it.

Why? Because somewhere deep in our subconscious we’re fighting against that goal.

A thread.
Almost everyone becomes an expert when it comes to giving opinions

Most opinions you'd read are from those who have never tried it or at best — they’ve only tried it once or twice.

At worst, those opinions are from people are clever as the last forum post they read.
There are a lot of myths flying around that could.

- Put you off trying it
- Cost you a lot of money and/or time.

Let’s talk about the biggest myths I can think of right now and possible solutions.
