Attract The Right Job Or Clientele: 

Upon beginning our career journey, most of us want to be successful, but the differentiator is whether you believe you can achieve success. We each define the word in varying ways. For example, we view recording artists and movie stars as hugely successful. 

But ~ if we don’t have that type of talent, how can we discover our unique abilities as we move forward in our careers?

My Story

Being a popular person will never be a part of my story; therefore, I always wondered if I could succeed despite the negativity. I applied the question initially to the sales profession as an unwelcome participant. I chose to keep an eye on my competition to know what they do and their style(s) to differentiate my delivery to my clientele more easily. The practice proved successful.

However, my sales training was initiated in childhood unknowingly. Growing up with bullies around, I became determined not to let anyone hold me back. Every evening the mantra was, the under-rated athletes are the ones who slide past to win. On the other side, I continually heard, ‘be nice to everyone no matter who it may be.’ Applying those two concepts to the work environment was my secret for eventually achieving success.

Everyone hears one more strategy during the December holiday festivities; sadly, not during the remainder of the year. We listen to it in the Scottish lyrics of the song, Auld Lang Syne, which asks, ‘Should Old Acquaintances Be Forgotten and Never Brought to Mind?’ My answer is a resounding, No!

Despite the nastiness that seems relentless around us, we manage to meet extraordinary people in our lives, whether in person or online. Before social media, networking groups were trendy for entrepreneurs, particularly those in the beginning phase of business. I dedicated myself to one chapter of a national organization where I met remarkable women. Our goal was to help one another move from the beginning phase to the next level and the next. And herein lies the difference ~ 

‘Never forget old acquaintances!

Success depends upon a positive mindset.

Sweet Sound of Success TV Show

Sue Wilhite and I met at one such event many years ago. Today, Sue features me on her TV Show, ‘Sweet Sound of Success’ ~ you may click this link or the photo to listen. 

  On a side note, my author journey began at one Chapter meeting. You can bet that I am still in touch with a number of the women whom I met at the beginning of my entrepreneurial endeavor.


What are the highlights of my sweet sound of success?

Most significant for me is that I decided to conduct business my way long ago despite the awful predictions and encouragement to quit. I meet people globally with diverse experiences who stimulate and inspire creative thought. Even better, I am a contributor to the effort of the Inclusion Allies Coalition that encourages our global community to hold and build upon the ideal of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.


My favorite milestones are:

  • Nice Girls DO Get The Sale is Evergreen
  • HIRED! How to Use Sales Techniques To Sell Yourself On Interviews helped many acquire the jobs they sought.
  • I am enjoying long-term friendships with professionals dedicated to helping one another.
  • Smooth Sale Blog distribution continues its growth with the dedication to helping younger people achieve their goals.

“Long ago, the Dale Carnegie public speaking class taught me to share my stories with whomever I meet. It is the story-sharing, respect for others, and dedication to serving communities that brought me to #The Sweet SoundofSuccess!

Your Story:  Do You Believe You Can Achieve Success?

Should you be at the early stage of your career, you may wonder whether you can achieve success. It is the positive mindset that is the differentiator for doing so. 

However, many times over, it is essential to give yourself a pep talk in the mirror over and over until you see a smile take over. The next tip is to part ways with those who selfishly predict you won’t make it because it’s not valid should you maintain positivity and the determination to make it happen. 

The most challenging part is recovering from when things do not turn out as expected. Know that the quicker you pick up the pieces to examine where the difficulty began, the more quickly you can recover and advance. The mishaps guide us to a better direction, and so learn to welcome them; another example of why a positive mindset is essential so you can achieve success.

As you build networks, stay in touch with those whose ideas you admire and welcome a free exchange to create something unique. As former acquaintances come to mind, reach out to reconnect. They will often welcome hearing from you, and upon providing updates, a collaborative effort may likely be forthcoming.

In conclusion, it is essential to believe you can achieve success to be far more likely to see the ‘wish’ come true!
