Be A Curious Entrepreneur To Boost Sales

be curious

I watched an Olivier Roland’s video  and I learned good stuff.

I read an article about Otzi, a man who died about 3255 or 3300 BCE. It’s been over 5000 years. Otzi is the name given to a frozen and dehydrated human being discovered on 19 September 1991 at an altitude of 3210 meters nears Hauslabjoch on the border between Austria and Italy. Otzi discovered with his axe in wooden handle and a copper blade. But why a copper blade because copper is soft ?

Apart from gold, the first metal used by men to make tools was cooper. It’s just because at the time, they didn’t know that by adding tin, it made a stronger alloy, bronze.

Now, it seems obvious to people with knowledge of metallurgy but for a long time nobody knew this alloy.

What I mean is that we’re all ignorant of something. This may be something that a small minority of the population knows or something everyone knows. I’m talking about it in a broad sense, it goes to confidential discoveries to widespread discoveries. We’re ignorant of many of these discoveries, no matter how popular these discoveries are.

Here is an example. Since 1977, it has been scientifically proven that when you make a request to a person (no matter the demand), if you touch the forearm or the shoulder of this person, you can even double your chance that the person tells you « yes ». There are still plenty of people who don’t know this and there are also people who know that but don’t use it. When you become aware of this, you realize that staying alone in you corner doesn’t help you to know the discoveries that there are in the world. And over time, you’ll become the last person to know what everyone starts to learn.

Stay in touch with innovations/discoveries

innovation discovery

What is important to understand for an entrepreneur is that it’s a duty, a philosophy and a way of life to always be in touch with innovations in the scientific field and also in other fields.

Today, there are many techniques or methods that have been used and proven in thousands of sectors to sell effectively on internet. What I find amazing is that there are still a lot of entrepreneurs who don’t know that selling their products on internet is possible. It’s almost a malpractice of theirs because they cut themselves off from an enormous potential for growth.

We all know people who have recently learned things that everyone knew. We have already discovered something and realize that everyone already knew that (or almost).

What is necessary for you to be successful in the long term and build your legacy is that you need to be constantly on a process of meeting people in your field and outside of your field to learn all the time from new things. Which means that you have to read books, follow trainings, follow Youtube educational channel. You also have to go to place to meet people who inspire you and people who motivate you.

Think about it : « If you’re always in a room where you’re the smartest person, you’re in the wrong room ». It may work for a while, but soon you will not evolve and during this time, the world is moving very fast. Be part of the people who take a few steps forward to learn and execute new things and let others stand-still.

Inspiration Without Copy

inspiration without copy

This is a Olivier Roland’s video  (in French) that gave me ideas when I was lacking of inspiration. Although I document the evolution of my physique and my blog, there are times when I can’t find inspiration. I’m not an expert and I am still learning new things with books or videos. That is why that from now I’ll share with you my sources like Wikipedia.

There is the possibility of asking to my community to have a subjects for an article but as it has been 9 months that this version of my blog is online, my community isn’t very big. The other possibility is to have inspiration from articles that already exist in my domain without plagiarizing.

Content already published

existing content

« The principle is to do on other websites and just read article’s title to have some ideas. Don’t read the article or watch the video to not use content that has already been used elsewhere ».

When we begin to create content, it’s not evident not COPY contents of published articles. As we’re in a process of reading and writing (learning and writing), we want to read to learn something. At first, I was writing about the same topics as the other articles with my own words but why do not referencing the source of the content ?

I watched a Tim Ferriss’s video  at The Family  where a person in the room asked a question. He answered the question and added the name of a book and the author. Often when we answer a question, we give the book‘s name that inspired us the answer by this way the person can read it for more details. This is normal because it can help.

Then I looked at Wikipedia and at the end of each article, there is a list of sources with an internet link. With the same principle to have a deeper knowledge. That’s why I decided to do the same thing with my blog.

Plagiarism

in

Often I find really interesting articles that teach me many things and then I want to share this knowledge because I say to myself : « This is so cool, it’s necessary that people learn that ! ». But how to do it without plagiarism ? Give the source and write an article to give my opinion. I think it’s an ultra cool possibility.

Give the source isn’t an act that says you’re a dumb person. This is what the Matrix wants you to believe ! Say your inspiration’s sources shows that you trust in yourself because you show to the world that you aren’t arrogant and there is one thing that the world will never forgive you : « The world is disappointed because he discovered that you played a role, what you have said and done is not your real you ! ».

An example, my mother always told me she was the first in the class and she had her high school diploma. She put pressure on me to be the model student. Years later, at 50 years old, she returned to school to do the equivalent of the high school diploma in Switzerland. That’s good, she got it, but how do you think I reacted after all these years of lies ?

Matrix forces us to have this arrogance, even based on a lie. That’s why I have a structure that allows me to think differently to create things for long term. Things that my future generations will use. Plagiarism is only a short-term success.

I hope this article will have given you inspirational ideas. You have questions ?
