Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now The very act of selling is about creating a preference to buy from you, to work with you, and to make you part of your prospect’s team, which today means you are part of their brain trust. Right now, it’s easy to be confused by all the things that you see, hear, and read about what you should be doing to create new opportunities, to win new business, and to grow your sales.You are supposed to be adopting digital tools, social selling, leveraging technology, embracing AI, and a dozen other imperatives, all of which may have more or less value depending on what you sell, how you sell, who your clients are, and how you compete and win. There is, however, a single common factor in all of these things that still has the greatest impact on whether you create and win opportunities and grow sales. That common factor is you. Said another way, you are not the largest part of the value proposition.While any of the list of things might improve your results, there is one that counts for more than all the rest combined. The single greater factor is you, the salesperson. Said another way, you are not the largest part of the value proposition. In large part, you are what your dream client is saying yes to—or in some cases, you are what they are saying no to.If you are the largest factor in success or failure, then it naturally follows that the more you improve yourself, the more you improve your results. Or as Rohn put it, “Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.” I might say this more forcefully, strongly suggesting that wishing isn’t going to do anything, and recommending massive action in its place.There are certain character traits and behaviors that the world rewards. Other character traits, beliefs, and behaviors that are punished. The better your character, your beliefs, and the actions that flow from them, the more effective you will be in sales—and every other area of your life. You might think of things like self-discipline, optimism, caring, competitiveness, resourcefulness, persistence, initiative, and communication as “personal” development, but the truth of the matter is that the person you are is also the professional. The Zen masters have another way of saying this, “How you do anything is how you do everything.” This is why personal and professional development cannot be separated.That said, in sales, there are skills necessary to succeed. We know what they are, even if many are not yet being developed by most salespeople or the sales organizations that employ them. They are closing, prospecting, storytelling, diagnosing, differentiating, negotiating, business acumen, change management, and leadership. These skills can be taught, and the greater the skills here, the better the results—provided you get the character traits right. The personal and the professional are so tightly intertwined that they cannot be teased apart.If you want to create a competitive advantage, the place to start isn’t going to be in anything external. It isn’t going to be found in tools, or social channels, technologies, or the dozens of other things that might capture your attention. The one thing that you most need to change is you, and developing yourself personally and professionally is the very best investment of your time, energy, money, and resources.
A total of seven Maoists, including two women, have been killed in two separate encounters in Odisha’s Kandhamal and Balangir districts since Saturday night.Security forces found another body on Monday morning, after they had recovered four bodies following an exchange of fire with Communist Party of India-Maoist cadres in the Sudurukumpa forest of the Kandhamal district on Sunday afternoon.The gun battle comes a day after two left-wing extremists — divisional committee member Sanjeeb who was carrying a reward on ₹5 lakh on his head, and Rakesh, an area committee member carrying a reward of ₹4 lakh — were killed in an exchange of fire with the security forces on Saturday.Special Operations Group, an anti-Maoist force, and District Voluntary Force launched an operation following a tip-off about a possible meeting of Communist Party of India (Maoist) cadres at Godanki village in Sudurukumpa forest.Two women among deadKandhamal Superintendent of Police Prateek Singh said two woman Maoists were among the five killed in the exchange of fire. Five guns, including an AK-47 and two INSAS rifles, were recovered from the spot. The names of the deceased had not been revealed till Monday evening.In the wake of the two encounters, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh spoke to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday and reviewed the security situation in the State, an official said. During the telephonic conversation, the Chief Minister briefed the Home Minister on the steps taken by the State government to deal with the Maoists, the official said. Mr. Singh also spoke to Odisha Director General of Police Rajendra Prasad Sharma and appreciated the successful operations against the Maoists.(With PTI inputs)

He’s a hell of a player. You need to be at your best when you’re guarding him,” said Banchero after Alaska’s 105-98 overtime victory over GlobalPort on Sunday.From their days in the ASEAN Basketball League, where Pringle played for the Indonesia Warriors while Banchero was with the San Miguel Beermen, to now in the PBA, the Fil-Italian guard bared that he never gets tired with the familiar matchup.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“I believe he brings out the best in everybody. He’s very, very shifty when he gets to the basket and he can shoot the ball so you have to be at your best when you’re guarding him,” he said.Pringle’s brilliance was once again in full display, leading the fight for the Batang Pier with 28 points, eight rebounds, and six assists.

It was a good win for us, it was a great week for us,” he said as Alaska improved to 6-2 after starting the season with two straight losses.Banchero, though, doesn’t want the streak to get into the Aces’ heads as they brace for their final three elimination assignments.“Teams make runs and we now won six in a row. But we haven’t accomplished anything yet. It’s still the regular season,” he said. “Hopefully, we’ll use this momentum in the playoffs and we keep it going.

We’re rapidly approaching the end of Game of Thrones and we have a lot of feelings about that fact. Some of us are prepped for disappointment. Others revel in Cersei Lannister as the greatest villain in television history. Mostly everyone’s upset that Jon Snow didn’t pat Ghost goodbye.But seeing as we’re headed toward the endgame (and we’ve finally calibrated our televisions correctly), we thought it might be a good time to discuss predictions.Who will ultimately win the Game of Thrones? Here’s what we think. Share your voice 36 of the best Game of Thrones fan theories 7:17 Natalie WeinsteinI dreamt about this after seeing a headline (but not reading the story) about Stephen King’s theory. In my dream, Jaime dies while killing Cersei just as she’s about to do something truly mad — just like when Jaime killed Dany’s father. The Mountain kills the Hound. Greyworm kills the Mountain. Dany and her dragon die in battle with Euron. Jon dies trying to save Dany. Yara shows up and kills Euron.Basically only a miserable Tyrion is left to rule. My dream didn’t include Arya or Bran, though I am sure they will play important roles in the finale. It also didn’t include Sansa, but I’m guessing she remarries Tyrion and finally becomes queen. Finally, Qyburn wasn’t in my dream, but he definitely needs to die a horrible death, along the lines of Ramsay.Despite all that, what I really want is for Dany to break the wheel and to rule — with Jon — in peace. But that feels like I’m asking way too much.Jon is the obvious choice. HBO Patrick HollandCersei kills JaimeArya kills CerseiMountain almost kills HoundArya kills MountainDaenerys goes madJon kills DaenerysJon retires up North a la WolverineBronn kills HarryYara kills EuronPodrick kills the ladies (wink, wink)Sansa wins the Game of ThronesIan SherrI think we all know the true winner here: HBO.Or: Ikea throw rugs.Jennifer BissetI think it’ll be Jon because he didn’t get to kill the Night King, so this is his time to shine. I have no other reasoning.I hope Sansa rules the North and Dany fulfils her destiny in securing King’s Landing — but then she realizes Drogon isn’t happy in Westeros and flies off somewhere where secret dragons live a la How To Train Your Dragon 3.All the characters who have some goal, like Arya killing loads of people, either achieve their goal and die, or die before they achieve their goal. They all die because otherwise they’d be aimless in Jon’s happy kingdom.Sean KeaneDany’s been presented pretty unsympathetically this season and Jon’s strictly adhered to his father-uncle’s code of honor and decency, making him the obvious choice for the throne (even if that honor got Ned killed and Jon really doesn’t want to sit on the chair made of knives).Cersei’s amazing to watch, but she’s had the throne long enough and her uppance badly needs to come.Anyway, if it can’t be Oberyn Martell, who even cares? Dracarys! Mark SerrelsIt’s clear at this point that the ship is steering toward the Jon Snow ending, but this is Game of Thrones and what you think is going to happen is almost meaningless.It’s a tough one to call. The symbolism of Rhaegal getting shot in the neck by Euron Greyjoy, leaving just one dragon remaining, suggests that Dany and Jon ruling over the incest realm as an aunt and nephew power couple probs isn’t happening at this point. The smart money is probably on Jon Snow, given he is a LITERAL AND ACTUAL MARY SUE, but a super-powered Dany is still a possibility.Part of me, however, would love the twist of Cersei winning in the end. Look, she might be a sociopath who hates poor people, but she’s been through a lot, OK? She’s been used and abused, her children have been murdered, and she reigns supreme in the most patriarchal universe in television history. She has taken on men in the game of thrones, bending the rules they wrote, rules that work to her absolute disadvantage, but still she continues to outplay them all.She is my Queen and I will forever bow down to her.Jackson RyanWild fan-fic theories are on the table now that GoT is racing hard to the finish line, right? Then the real winner SHOULD be Hot Pie.Hot Pie actually killed the Night King. He set Arya on her way back to Winterfell, where she ultimately ended the reign of the Blue Man Group. That makes Hot Pie the most genuine, wholesome choice to lead the realm into an era of post-Lannister pastry prosperity. Oh… we can’t go fan-fic? Well, uh, no one. And not like Arya’s No One. Just no one. Nobody wins. We all lose.Sarah McDermottI’ve only seen the first episode but I’m pretty sure that Sean Bean guy’s going to go the distance. Long live King Sean!Dan AckermanThe Jon/Dany power-couple will cycle through several more iterations before we’re through. First with a “conscious uncoupling,” then getting back together, splitting again, etc. At the end, it will devolve into a Rey/Kylo Ren codependent relationship, where they’re teaming up to fight a common enemy one second, then fighting each other the next. But none of that matters, because here’s my go-for-broke prediction. As Mark suggests, the show ends with Cersei (still) on the Iron Throne, her enemies vanquished or exiled. Then the final shot, dollying in on her as she reaches up and… it’s Arya Stark wearing a Cersei mask! Cut to credits. David KatzmaierSansa, with Bran as Hand and Tyrion/Varys as the Hands behind the Hand. After Jon and Dany and Cersei and Jaime kill one another in a massive four-way battle royale in the throne room, intercut with an epic side-battle featuring the Hound and Arya on one side versus The Mountain and a surprisingly spry Qyburn on the other, Tyrion and Varys crawl out from under the wine sidecar looking for someone, anyone left alive to place on the Throne.Some think Cersei has a good shot. HBO In rides Sansa on the back of Lady (fully restored and fluffy thanks to the Lord of Light) next to Rickon on Shaggydog and Bran riding/warging Nymeria. The surviving Northmen and King’s Landing common folk have crowned Sansa Queen now that Jon’s dead and Drogon goes along with it because RESPECT THE NORTH. All hail the new Mother of Dragons and Wolves with a side of Ravens, no King required.Patricia PuentesI really wanted to see the Night King on the Iron Throne because I was a believer in the whole allegory about the White Walkers representing climate change. And Game of Thrones as a cautionary tale to take the planet’s wellbeing more seriously really appealed to me. Now that Westeros seems to be rid of blue-eyed zombies I feel a bit bummed. One thing is clear, I absolutely don’t want a happy ending for this show and I’ll be pissed to no end if Jon+Dany end up sharing the throne, holding hands and living happily ever after. Even if they are a slightly incestuous couple.So either let the merciless Cersei win (she makes for much more entertaining TV than the insipid Jon Snow/Aegon Targaryen) or find a way for the Children of the Forest to create a new Night Monarch and let the undead take the Iron Throne.Also if Game of Thrones created an uproar about a Starbucks coffee cup maybe it can create another one about single-use plastic. 38 Photos Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4: The good, the bad… TV and Movies Tags Now playing: Watch this: 7 Comments Game of Thrones

The death toll from a cholera outbreak in restive northeast Nigeria has risen to 21, with most of the victims living in a camp for people displaced by Boko Haram violence, the health ministry said Tuesday.On Saturday, the ministry had said the cholera toll was 14 in the town of Maiduguri, with most of the victims living in a camp for people displaced by Boko Haram violence.“As of 4 September, 21 deaths have been reported,” the Borno state health ministry said Tuesday, as the toll mounts.“The total number of suspected cholera cases is now 375 in Maiduguri,” it said, up from 186 at the weekend.Most of the suspected cases and deaths are in Muna Garage, a camp for displaced people on the outskirts of Maiduguri, while other victims come from neighbouring districts, it said.The government and NGOs are working to contain the outbreak which has spread to the town of Dikwa, 60 kilometres (40 miles) away, where five cases had been reported, it added.Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram has been repeatedly attacked by the jihadists.The city’s population has doubled since the start of the eight-year Boko Haram violence, rising to some two million inhabitants due to influxes of displaced people from across the state.The conflict has left some 20,000 people dead and displaced at least 2.6 million others since 2009, leaving many displaced people in crowded makeshift camps at risk of contagious diseases like cholera.
