We all tend to look at extremely successful individuals as “gifted” with “natural-born talent”.
Until I read Robert Greene’s book, Mastery I thought the same way also.
I used to think that Einstein or Mozart were especially gifted. The following film excerpt of Mozart re-enforces these perceptions.
Viewing others as naturals is just a cognitive bias on our part. It is in the master’s interest to give the impression their talent is natural and takes no effort on their part. This keeps their would-be threats at bay.
The same goes for sales. No matter your background if you are prepared to work hard, learn and develop your EQ, you should also have a very good chance of sales success!
If you don’t believe me, then read Robert Greene’s book, Mastery.
