Tone it down… NO!
When I meet a salesperson and they are very prim and proper, a little dull and little stale I tend not to buy from them. I love all people, but I love the ones with a little crazy streak in them, the funny ones, the quirky ones, the PASSIONATE ONES! I love people that truly let their freak flag fly, in life and in business.
I have a good friend, who is a client of mine too, who is over the top. He helps people buy BMW's for a living and he is a genuine one of a kind. Every time I talk to him I laugh. He is a bit crazy, a bit goofy and a whole lotta fun. He makes me feel normal. And you know what, I buy from him, I refer him and I genuinely do it with fervor and complete confidence. He is not only fun, he is great at what he does.
I've often wondered if I was to goofy or to out there for people. I often post what I consider motivational videos to the web and sometimes as I do, I wonder, should I hit send, is this too much?? No I say to myself, let it all out there, be who you are, if you are not you are robbing the world of your charisma and energy! I am not being annoying (in my opinion!) or weird, I am being me, a full on hardcore positively energized original human being. I live my life with passion and 10,000 megawatt energy (that is my affirmation!). It is that originality that attracts people to us, that fun, that energy, that smile, that genuine PASSION for life and what you do!
So, be who you are, let yourself be the original you with no regrets. You are amazing, you are awesome, you are a one of a kind, kick ass, energized passionate human being and you deserve all this life has to give! When you are genuine and authentic people will love you and when people love you and want to be around you you will watch your star rise! Don't tone it down, TONE IT UP!
Have an incredible day!
