For example, if you feel like you have a lot of “work” to do, you can say, “Let’s get started right now.
Here’s the thing though. If you feel you need to get things done, you’re not going to say, Let’s get started, because you don’t have the authority. Instead, you’ll say, Lets get started, because you are the authority. This is important because you need to build trust with your audience. If you’re not clear on who your audience is, you might not be able to convince them.
This is pretty important because some people will respond to your request with one thing, and then they will think that youre not giving them what they need, or they need something else entirely. If you are the authority, you can help break this cycle, because you can change people’s minds one at a time. Also, sometimes people will want to do things that are unreasonable, but you can say, Lets get started so you can be the authority.
So, for example, if you were in a store and someone said to buy something, you might ask them to say why they would want to buy it and if they could do it with one click of a mouse, they might say yes, because they are the authority. You might ask them to show you what they would buy, or you might just ask them how many hours they wanted to spend working on their project.
It’s easy to look like a dick when you’re asking something unreasonable. It’s hard to look like a dick, however, when you’re asking something unreasonable in the first place. A good example of someone who is a dick when they’re unreasonable is a salesperson. You know, they can’t just ask for a sale, they have to sell you on why they’re asking for a sale.
Asking for things you don’t want to be asked for will often lead to resistance. That’s why the first step to any persuasion process is to show people what they want, in a way that is believable and convincing. In the case of salespeople, they can use a variety of tactics to make it look like they are really interested in what you have to say.
When you make a request you are making a request for something you do not want. And that is why it is important to remember that to sell people on what you want, you have to say how you want it. For example, I just bought a new car. I did not want to buy it outright, but I wanted to buy it with a salesman who was persuasive, persistent, and convincing enough to get me to buy it.
For most people, this seems like a simple enough request, but for some, it isn’t. This can be especially true for people who have strong ethical values or who are in a leadership position. If you are in a leadership position, you may want to make a request like this, because you want to get a promotion or become more powerful.
It is rare when someone forces you to buy something without any kind of argument. If you dont like it, dont do it. If you do it, take the risk that you might be wrong. This is why you should always ask before you buy something.
