If you are in the sales industry, you should have the magic tongue that can persuade any person to buy whatever product you offer. You may have read countless books on how to do this. You may have even resolved to give conversational hypnosis a try. But there is a technique that can help you persuade anyone on anything in just 10 seconds. You can use this technique in other endeavors aside from sales.
Here are the ways to persuade anyone in just 10 seconds:
Act as if you have already persuaded them. Imagine what you would feel like if you have persuaded that particular person, how would you act? You probably would stand up straight, smile, and you would have a positive aura that simply beckons whoever it is you are trying to convince to say “yes.” That confidence will emit a vibration that would make you look like an honest, reliable person people could like or even love.
Proper Breathing. Proper breathing means not doing those, short and shallow breaths that make you look like you just did a hundred meter dash. If you breathe properly, you will look relaxed. If you look relaxed, you will make people feel like you are a trustworthy person.
Keep quite and listen when someone is talking. You tend to say a lot of those “uh-huh” and “yeah” just to show a person you are interested in what he or she is saying. But those sounds will only make you look stupid and not trustworthy. So, just keep quite and listen to the person when he or she is talking.
