🤯 Valuable Words of Wisdom from Zig Ziglar

“If people like you, they’ll listen to you, but if they trust you, they’ll do business with you.” — Zig Ziglar, Author, Salesman, and Motivational Speaker

📝 Our Wisdom Breakdown

People will listen to you if they like you, but if they trust you, they will do business with you.
So if you want people to listen to what you have to say then the most important thing you should keep in mind is that you need to make them like you.

You must have a positive attitude in order for you to be liked by others. Also, you must listen to others because you can’t expect to be listened to if you don’t have the ability to listen to others.

This is the very first step to make people trust you because if they like you and they listen to you then eventually they will start trusting you. And this is when people would want to do business with you because people always want to do business with the genuine, honest, and people they trust.

Therefore, you have to be trustworthy to make people like and trust you. As long as you have these characteristics in yourself, your people will listen to what you have to say. If you want to be trustworthy then you have to be honest, responsible, humble, and a man of your words.

In this way, you will end up getting more and more business by being a likable and trustworthy person.
