How to convince people? The first thing to do to convince people is know and understand what you are trying to convince. You cannot convince someone if you, yourself, is not even convinced to that.
Convince yourself by having patience, diligence and dedication on finding answers to your questions. Make research, do experiments, learn from other people, study the Words of God, and practice reflections. Justify in your heart, mind and soul the thing that you want to convince them. Practice and live on that thing.
Don’t convince someone with a lie. Because lie will eventually be discovered, and once it’s discovered, your convincing power will be destroyed and may never be restored again. Hence, convince people with a truth. Believe on what you are trying to tell them.
If you are trying to convince your customers to buy your products, make sure that your products are worth it. Make sure that they have the quality and the value that consumers want. Then convince them by telling and educating them the truth about the value and quality of your products. Give them samples and freebies.
If you want to convince your employees and subordinates to be productive and profitable, show them that you are also productive and profitable. Be a role model. Also show them the good effects of productivity and profitability by giving them productivity and profitability bonus. Be generous.
If you want to convince people in your community, be helpful and be useful. Be a community-friendly person. Make your business or profession socially responsible. Obey the law of the land. Speak to the people in your community with the true intentions of helping and saving their lives. Save their lives through big and many small ways. Don’t smoke in public places; don’t throw your garbage in the river or in the streets. Be friendly to people, to the environment and even to the culture.
If you want to convince anyone with anything, just be that anything. Persuade someone to be rich by being rich. Influence someone to love by being loving. Convince someone to tell the truth by being honest and showing the advantages of telling the truth. Convince someone to lead himself by being a leader. Convince a person to follow you by following what is good for him. Convince someone to have self-discipline by being healthy, fit and happy.
