Inevitably customers will bargain and negotiate for a better price. It is human nature.
So, as a salesperson – what is your worth ? What is your value ? Where do you draw the line in giving better prices ?
In your quest to deliver great product and services, your SELF-WORTH is important too.
Should you have a feeling of desperation or being pushed into a corner by a customer, perhaps you have wrongly positioned your product or even perhaps chosen a wrong customer who does not appreciate your product/services.
They say that “Customer is King”.
But remember …… a good KING is compassionate, understands his subjects and will not make his people suffer.
Hence, are you then serving and being loyal to the right KING ? Find a KING who appreciates you, values you and not taking you for granted.
As we forge ahead into the new normal era, we will need to redefine our niche and strengths again.
We will need to adapt, change and re-change many times to achieve a balance on what our new routines should be like.
Our past strengths could be our new weaknesses today. Be prepared to leave some of our “old me” behind. Create a NEW-ME …..a one that is stronger and compassionate as well as living a life of mutual respect and empathy.
How does one tell one’s daughter to use less of her mobile phone when he himself has heightened the usage of his own handphone in this Covid19 lockdown ?
Over the past few years, we seem to have acknowledged the fact that children growing up today are spending too much time on their mobile phones. The “people to people” interaction seem to be missing significantly.
Most social interaction and activities are done through their mobiles. Chatting, gaming, shopping, googling, posting about themselves (and others) and even just merely “scrolling to see what others are doing” have become a daily favorite hobby weekdays or weekends alike. Some are even expressing that being online is a relaxing therapy and they can be stressed up if they have no access to Instagram, FB or WA.
Is this an unhealthy way of growing up ? Or are we just being old-fashion stuck in our own minds on how the future generation should behave ? Did we experience Gojek, Tokopedia and Grab when we were growing up years ago ? Did we ever imagine we could ever be “prisoners” to the wrath of the Covid19 ?
Humbled by the current situation and reality, who are we to judge ? How can we ever predict and dictate what is best for our children in this one single aspect of life on their “need and addiction to mobile phones” ?
