The confidence of sincerity

A sincere desire to be of help, to make a contribution, gives us confidence in difficult situations - cold calling, job interviews, public speaking, confrontations, asking for assistance, resolving differences. When you are truly sincere in your desire to help, it will show. You’ll have a natural confidence and effectiveness, that comes when you know you’re providing something of value.

Carefully consider what you have to offer, and what you can do for the other person. How will your relationship benefit them? Now, think about how you would feel, if someone called on you and showed a sincere interest in being of assistance. Wouldn’t that be refreshing!

A sincere desire to help, is more than an attitude. It includes the willingness to be adequately prepared, and to take the actions that will put you in a position to be of assistance.

Live with the confidence that comes from offering true value and substance, and you’ll accomplish great things.

— Ralph Marston
