You will find you can be sold as such. Not as who you are, but as who you want to be. In fact, if done properly, you will not have to sell yourself at all, but instead be sought after and “bought.”
Great companies are not sold, they are bought. Top athletes are not sold, they are bought. A great car is not sold, it is bought. And you will not be sold, you will be bought.
Sell yourself as you are and you will get less than you could have received. Less than you are worth.
You will regret having not sold yourself for more – not having been sought after and bought.
Life is largely about perception. You are worth what you communicate yourself to be worth. In your job, in your relationships, in your confidence and self-worth.
Set yourself up for success by setting the opening bid price as high as possible.
