An idea worth spreading
Your Raise will become effective as soon as you become effective.
These were the very words that my old General Manger at Guitar Center(Dan DeHate) Gave me to use as an objection to employees that told me they deserved a raise. Actually he told me to tell them “O.K. you can have a raise and your raise will become effective as soon as you become effective”.
As Dan pointed out we work for commission and if we needed a raise we should just sell more products to get a bigger check. Saying this I believe this quote goes way deeper than just a sales man’s commission check. I believe in life we have to strive to do better for ourselves and our loved ones.
Too many people sit on their duffs and complain about how others have it better than them. If you spent this wasted time on doing things to improve your situation rather than complaining about others you would have improvements in your own life.
I'm passionate about
About motivating people to do their best and to show people that our main weakness is our own self doubt.
