The Truth About Why You’re Desperate

first_imgIf you are working on prospects that aren’t right for your company (and it’s business model), that don’t value what you do (or how you do it), you are making a mistake. And you’re making a mistake that will cost you your sales results.The reason that salespeople pursue prospects that should be disqualified is because they’re desperate. And nothing ruins your sales results like desperation.Your Business ModelIf your primary value proposition isn’t price, then selling to prospects to whom price is the most important factor is wrong.First, if price isn’t how you create value (and it likely isn’t), then you aren’t the right choice for these prospects—even if you can win their business. Second, and more important still, you destroy your business model by trying to serve clients that are unwilling to leave you enough profit to serve them well.It costs you time and energy better spent on your dream clients. And should you win these prospects, you either damage your company’s business model and reputation by underserving them (since they are unprofitable) or you disappoint them.If you are chasing prospects outside of your model, it’s because you are desperate. If you are desperate, it’s because you need to spend more time prospecting. You can’t protect and execute your business model if you are desperate.They Don’t Perceive ValueThere are some prospects for whom what you do—and how you do it—doesn’t create value. It may not have anything to do with price or your business model. You can spend a lot of time working on prospects that don’t value what you do, but it won’t make your number go up.When salespeople struggle to build their pipeline, and they decide their efforts would be better spent on some new vertical who might adopt what they sell—even though no one in that vertical buys any of what they sell presently. They try selling to people who don’t already buy what they sell. And the reason that these “prospects” don’t buy is that they don’t perceive value.If any of the “prospects” in your pipeline don’t presently buy what you sell, you want to rethink your plan.If you are chasing prospects that don’t perceive value in what you do, it’s because you are desperate. And if you are desperate, it’s because you need to spend more time prospecting. The fastest path to producing sales results is by calling on clients that already value what you sell, even if they are the most difficult with whom to open new opportunities.The Last WordTo a starving man, anything looks like a meal. When you are desperate, everybody looks like a prospect. Your time is better spent prospecting, learning to open relationships, and pursuing deals with your real dream clients.QuestionsWhen you get desperate, do you lower your standards?Have you ever arguing that you should win an account that really isn’t right for your company?Have you ever tried selling to prospects that don’t already buy what you sell because you thought it would be easier? That they wouldn’t all already have suppliers?How do you prevent from becoming desperate?last_img read more

Manipur government gets tougher against agitations opposing Citizenship Bill

first_imgThe Manipur government has firmed up its stand against the agitations opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. The entire Northeast region is experiencing various forms of agitations against the Bill. Manipur Chief Secretary J. Suresh Babu issued an order on Monday instructing all government offices and educational institutes to open during the 18-hour general strike called by some organisations in the NE region from Monday midnight.However, Manipur’s Education Minister T. Radheshyam said on Monday that the Bill has no clause to hurt the interest of Manipur.Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function in Imphal on Monday, the Minister said that some Opposition parties had misled the people with disinformation. If it is pointed out that there are clauses against the people, the government is ready for talks.However, it is in contrast to what the Chief Minister N. Biren has been saying. He has been saying that a clause would be added to the Bill to protect the interest of Manipur. Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader Okram Ibobi questioned it pointing out that the Bill passed by the Lok Sabha cannot be altered in any manner at the behest of the Manipur Chief Minister. Women activists demanded immediate actions since the Bill in the present form may be passed any day.Some weeks ago Mr. Biren made a surprise visit to the Secretariat and ordered deduction of one day’s salary as over 250 employees were absent during a general strike.Frustrated employees said that when there is no proper public transport system and all roads are unsafe as activists are present everywhere the government employees and students cannot attend office. One employee said that in the past, employees were allowed to sleep in the office premises during strikes and they were provided free meals. But for unexplained reasons this facility was denied.last_img read more

Santos, Ronaldo and other players addressed the fans from a balcony.“We couldn’t have done this without you,” Ronaldo told fans.Ronaldo couldn’t do much against Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk in the matchup of likely contenders for the player of the year award, but Guedes couldn’t be stopped when he hit a powerful right-footed shot from outside the area in the 60th minute.Guedes started the build-up to the goal with a pass to Bernardo Silva, receiving the ball back at the top of the area and firing a firm low shot past Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, who touched the ball but couldn’t parry it away.“It was a hard shot,” said Cillessen, who was making his 50th appearance with the Netherlands. “I saw it late.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Some of the loudest chants at the stadium came from English fans who likely had expected their national team to reach the final.

We have to be very proud of ourselves. Now disappointment is in our heads but we have to keep heads up.

Distraught Innu leader issues poignant plea for troubled youth after sons death

first_imgThe Canadian PressST. JOHN’S, N.L. — One of Labrador’s most outspoken Indigenous leaders buried his 16-year-old son last week.Simeon Tshakapesh, deputy grand chief of the Innu Nation, says his boy, Thunderheart, took his own life May 24 after two years of treatment for solvent abuse – much of which took place far from his home in Natuashish.“He was in the system and he took his life,” Tshakapesh said in an interview Wednesday. “He was damaged physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. He wasn’t the same. He couldn’t recover.”Despite his deep sorrow and anger, Tshakapesh is now calling on the federal and provincial governments to dramatically alter the way they treat Indigenous youth with substance abuse problems.In particular, the deputy chief says he wants funding for a multicultural youth treatment centre to be built in central Labrador.Earlier in the day, he released an open letter that includes an intensely raw account of how the Innu of Labrador have suffered over the years. The poignant missive also makes it clear that Tshakapesh believes the province’s Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development failed his son.“The question for me now is, how did the system fail him so badly and what can be done to change this situation?” Tshakapesh asks in the letter, which offers a solution.He said he wants to see the provincial and federal governments invest in an Innu-led project that would put an end to the removal of children and youth from their communities.While the removal process may keep vulnerable youth safe and sober, it also destroys connections to their family, language, and community, Tshakapesh said.“Improving a child’s present while not actually preparing them to return to the world from which they were taken can have very tragic consequence,” the letter said. “Their reintegration into family and community is extremely difficult, if not impossible under these circumstances.”Speaking from St. John’s, N.L., Tshakapesh said his son spent a great deal of time over the past two years at treatment centres in Regina and Grand Falls-Windsor, in Newfoundland, where he was prescribed anti-depressant pills. He said two of his nephews followed a similar path. Both took their own lives in the past two years.“It’s time that we not allow our youth to be sent out of province … and it’s time the federal government and the provincial government provide … care within our own territory,” he said in the interview.Tshakapesh says future treatment programs must focus on helping children and youth learn how to survive off the land in the wilder corners of Labrador, a process that would revive the proud history of the Innu as nomadic hunters.Tshakapesh says there’s plenty of evidence to suggest the Innu in general gain a sense of purpose and fulfillment when they are out on the land, doing what their ancestors did for thousands of years.“I have been told that in town the Innu appear downcast and morose,” he said. But when his people are on the land, “they come alive.”“I believe that this is because for millennia the land itself was our home and it became part of who we are. To an Innu, all of Labrador is their living room.”To explain why hunting, trapping and living in the bush is so important to the Innu, Tshakapesh opens his letter with a brief description of how his ancestors continued to hunt in Labrador’s interior in the winter and fish on the coast in the summer until the 1960s when the first permanent villages were settled.The Innu leader said the radical change in lifestyle led to a growing dependence on social assistance, and he argues that families were harmed by sending their children away to school, where their native language was lost.Tshakapesh also mentions the island village of Davis Inlet, which was thrust into the international spotlight in 1993 when video recordings of suicidal, gas-sniffing kids exposed a level of desperation and squalor that few Canadians knew existed in their own country.He would later become chief of the village, and in 2001 he was behind an emergency plan that saw 35 Innu youth sent to St. John’s, Newfoundland for addictions treatment.“It was a big mistake, but our hands were tied at that time,” he said. “We had no resources. We had no facilities.”In 2002, the federal government relocated the residents of Davis Inlet to new homes in nearby Natuashish, but Tshakapesh said alcohol continues to flow in the officially “dry” community. He also described a range of street drugs from pot to cocaine.Last month, Tshakapesh went public about the return of gas sniffing, with kids as young as 11 inhaling the noxious fumes to get high, after two boys were injured in a fire.In a statement Wednesday, Health Canada said it was “deeply concerned” about recent suicides and solvent misuse in Natuashish, and has offered help.“Health Canada has also been actively collaborating in partnership with the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the community on an action plan to provide immediate assessment and addiction treatment services to those in need. Health Canada will facilitate transportation as individuals are identified,” said spokesman Eric Morrissette.Sherry Gambin-Walsh, the minister of Children, Seniors and Social Development for Newfoundland and Labrador, said in a statement Wednesday governments are undertaking multiple programs to help Innu communities.“The health and well-being of children and youth depends upon a safe, secure and nurturing environment at home and in the community, which is best achieved by the cooperation of all parties. We are committed to continuing our efforts to collectively find solutions to these complex and critically important issues,” said [email protected]last_img read more
