Three Rituals for Success

“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.” – Thomas Edison

This quote reminded me of some of the brilliant articles written by Ronelle Ingram.

While searching online for Ronelle’s articles, I came across her “10 Rituals for Success.”

Ronelle is a well-known speaker and author of Service with a Smile. (and a genuinely nice person.)

Reading these nuggets of wisdom prompted me to stop and think:  These are too good not to share, especially the laugh out loud ritual.

Here are three of Ronelle’s 10 rituals for success:

  1. Give thanks to someone for something each day.
    Some cultures call it prayer. Others believe it is just politeness. Conscientiously acknowledge something worthwhile that is happening in your life.
  2. Laugh out loud.
    Children and animals are enormous sources of humor.
    When you discover you have done something foolish, laughter continues to be the best medicine.

It is 44 seconds of funny . . .

. . . but you may want to turn down your speakers first.

  1. Get rid of clutter.
    If your car doesn’t fit in the garage, take a long look at your priorities. What do you have stored in your garage that is more valuable than your car? Less is more. Purify your life by freeing yourself of clutter. If you have not used something in one year, you can almost certainly get along better without it.

Speaking of Ritual #1, give thanks to someone:

Thank you, Ronelle, for your many years of dedication to service professionals and also for the kind words you used when describing my services on LinkedIn. Especially this phrase “Ann brings a wealth of knowledge and civility to . . . selling . . ..”

Selling with civility is something that is very much a part of my one-to-one e-course.

Private one-to-one sales training and coaching starts this month.
