Honesty

scan001311.jpg   Am I too honest when I tell you that I have a great product that will help you?

Am I too honest when I tell you to buy that product? 

Can you be “too honest?”

I do not believe that you can be “too honest.”  You have to ask for what you  want.  You have to ask clearly and directly.

Is that being blunt? Perhaps but it is also being straightforward and clear.  If you beat around the bush then you can be misunderstood.   You can  be considered wishy washy, weak, meek, a pushover.  Which is worse?  To be misunderstood and be thought of as wishy washy, weak, meek, a pushover or to be understood and thought of as blunt, straightforward and clear?  I think you know the answer.  

Let’s be clear.  Asking for what you want is not insulting someone.  It is about you and your wants and needs.  Asking for what you want clearly and direclty is an affirmative statement. 

You may not get what you want but if you ask for it you will know where you stand.  It is always better to know where you stand.

If the place you are employed at has no intention in the near future of giving you what you want you can make an educated choice.  Stay or go.  You now have control of your life.  You now have the information to make a decision. 

If you are reticient then you are afraid of what you will find out.  Why?  The truth will not change because you do not seek it. 

So ask for what you want.  Be honest.  Be clear.  Be straightforward.

Help is here.

  1. Good point Marcia…

    I once had the opportunity to talk to a very successful internet marketer.

    I knew from his past successes that he knew how to make money selling products online.

    So I wanted to see what was the secret to his success….

    He made it very clear that it was honesty.

    He didn’t mislead people.

    And he simply asked them for the sale…

    It was pretty interesting stuff to hear.

    Good Post..

  2. keir,
    i am glad to hear that honesty is valued and that it can definitely be an asset. so many people think manipulation is the way to go. when i deal with people that i do not feel are honest i tend to tune them out and question every thing they say. i do not want to be misled when i am considering a purchase. i want to be informed.
