Know When to Pull and When to Push

Motivational Power Quote

 

Know When to Pull and When to Push

“A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that’s unlocked

and opens inwards; as long as it does not occur to

him pull rather than push.”

Ludwig Wittgenstein 1919 -1990, Austrian – British philosopher  

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

Know when to pull and when to push

 

You have to know when you have to push yourself to take the next step . . . . to take on a new assignment, to get additional education or to reach greater levels of success.

 

Customers love to buy but they don’t like to be sold or pushed.

 

A customer that’s pushed will reach a point in the business relationship . . . . where they become uncomfortable. They will either mental withdraw from the relationship or stop returning our calls and end the communications.  But in either case it . . . . creates a push back by the customers and . . . . the business opportunity is lost.

 

The soft approach to a successful business relationship is to reach out to your customers lend them a helping hand and . . . . pull them forward, mentor them and guide them through the business relationship.

 

By using a soft approach . . . . you are pulling our customer forward in a series of step some will be small steps and others will turn out to be a giant step forward.

 

By pulling your customers forward . . . . the relationship will evolve into one of rapport and mutual trust which will become the bedrock of a successful business relationship.

 

Know when to pull and when to push . . . . and you will put yourself in the position to help your customers and to achieve your goals and to reach yours.
