Bruce LeeRight now, as I am writing this book, I feel most alive. All the matters seem significant and strong. First book is like a firstborn child: It had been expected to come and the feeling is splendid, when it is now created. Achievements raise my mind ― always.

I have nailed part of my feelings and soul to this book, which I have cleared with hard work and struggle. I believe in reincarnation, that clear and pure soul is eternal and able to return on earth to help you ― to fight with you in life and in sales. Also you can be a soul, which gets to be the seller´s diamond, samurai-fighter like Miyamoto Musashi was in his times. A diamond, which shines clear in the sky and will reincarnate again and again.

Inevitably someday that moment will dawn, when my body collapses and will switch from time to eternity. My body and my mind will run out, but my will never will. It lives forever. This way I have decided.

Don´t you neither give in ― never! When your heart burns with real flame, it carries from here to eternity, to the sellers heaven. Remember that in incarnation the soul always returns to help that seller, who raises his sword, receives the challenge and starts to grind his own diamond. Hard work brings results ― you get nothing for free. Prove that you are one of the best. Light up to be a diamond in sellers sky. I will go in front and fight on your behalf up till the end. You can trust on that.

Inspire Me Markku TauriainenAs I was writing this book I worked as an ordinary telemarketer in the front line of Call Center and I received customer´s explanations and objections for three months. I lived, fought and won. How did I succeed in demanding ´cold call´ telemarketing? I became ― number 1 ― Finland´s best telemarketer of Nokia mobilephones in 2009.

I won the Nokia competition, which lasted for two months. Hundreds of colleagues was left behind. In the age of 48.

Once again I won myself by receiving the challenge. I made the sales history and broke my own records and records made. I do not remember anymore how often I have done that during my life, but reaching goals has always been rewarding. Also you should get inspired by sales and making of sales. Be good, and it is possible to become better.

CALL ME – the next book – I write all of the best and juiciest explanations, complaints and objections I have heard from customers, so that we can identify with all of those. Why? Therefore that we could walk over them and still develop as a seller. I write the instructions for suppressing the most general objections with good 2000´s examples. Step in to the next level and learn how to decide, to close deals. Closing is everything – art of selling!

ChagallThe life is a short period of time, certainly under one hundred years – the soul, your inspiri is evian – lux aeterna – and your honour, perennnial it is.

If there is a will, there is a way.

So – Rise The Knight – once again. Find your purpose and mission. Awhile you are here, listen your inner voice. Find it.

Wishing you Happy Halloween!

All the best, -MT =)

Fill what you know,

what you want to.

Everything is in you.”

Three Generations Of Hard Work

Ask for a deal, then you have workThe Jews have a phrase: The real entrepreneurship is created in three man generations. First father looks, then son does, then grandson learns. As a seller you have to be thorough, persistent and enthusiastic. All the stones must be turned all the way around. The matters have to be studied and repeated. When you do and give everything you have and do it for a long time, you can wait to get results.

Only hard, extremely hard work is rewarded. Realise this and open this book, whenever you have the possibility for it. If Jews have learned during generations, that entrepreneurship and sellers are created in three generations, how could you wait to get to be the king in one or two months.

If I honestly estimate my sales career, which has lasted for 35 years, I want to say humbly, that only results earned with hard work are lasting. I have had to return to my source often to find enthusiasm, know-how and will.

DiamondThe diamonds accumulated into my treasure chest are always clearer, and more valuable, the more hard selling I do. Even if the chest was full of diamonds, in sales a man never get to free riders position.

Man has to get excited about selling over and over again and with passion. When you walk often enough to the sedge, where work and hoe is waiting, you become humble.

At this stage I want to make clear that humility is not crawling and asking forgiveness ― not parrots whistle. The servility has to be understood as a wisdom to take new work and field courageously. If your will, attitude and desire are encouraging for hard work, you are always rewarded.

Be a pioneer from your soul and start working from morning untill night. Make sales without sorrow. Kick yourself forward. Give your all until you are knackered. Rest at night and start a new morning and a new working day with enthusiasm and joy. This way your father and mother, grandfather and grandmother have done.

Hard work is already done creasting the pearl necklace of your family tree, but it is your honour to shine brightest and to maintain the treasures and crowns of your family.

Get inspired by your own doing again and again. Count the deals done by you, not working days. Get to be the clearest star in the sky and shine.

Myamoto MusashiMIYAMOTO MUSASHI 1584–1645 (jap. 宮本武蔵,) lived his life in an orderly fashion and walked the road of Samurais. He appreciated honestly, humility and hard work. Wrote his famous book ― Gorin No Sho.

Wise Old People

Inspire Me Diamond 2013Every human develops during his life. The best hints and wisdom are diamonds in the people´s pockets. Someone has already found and collected them. You only have to ask and be interested in the time and the moment, which you get with your customer.

Often older people have pockets full of diamonds ― all kinds of diamonds. It is worth being interested about them.

One young, successful male seller I met in telemarketing was specialised in food and pastry recipes. He told me that old people are gold mines of recipes. They have developed them for years. When you show genuine interest, they reveal the recipes of their best tidbits and delicacies. You can make a deal and get recipe hints as well.

And when you are holding a new diamond you are more powerful as a seller when you pass their experiences on to other customers.

Do not belittle old people. They have pockets full of diamonds, wisdoms, which you get by showing genuine interest in the work they have done. Do not think negatively about any living creature.

Life is around you. Also experiences and wisdoms. When someone tells you secrets and advices of sales, receive them. When you get to total flood, matters will glide to your thoughts like music. In my opinion, one song which brings pleasure is Frankie Valley´s Can´t Take My Eyes off You, which was also played in film The Deer Hunter. Listen the song often, and you get to good mood from it and you get to the highway of enthusiasm. Do not take your eyes off sales! Make Sales, Sales, Sales!
