Over you could say 40 years in sales and holding many titles, never once did I take them serious / blurt it out, and I still do not even though it would still be easy for me to do now.
What I have found in all of those years in general in working with many managers is those who self title and brag about, put it on their shirt like a badge of honour are for the best part the biggest dip shits who really bring nothing but a big noise to the table and often leave a bigger mess for those quiet ones to clean up once they have been replaced.
In some ways it seems like a power trip for them, I have this fancy title or I will claim the rights to the kingdom and pronounce myself the almighty one, and thoust shall all bow before me when i speak, while the quiet ones look around and just lower their eyes as they say "here we go again"
So are you the quiet one who achieves, and I bet we all know the local god of sales, and for those sales gods, what is that makes you tick ? are you so insecure that you need a big flashy title to your name to make you feel important, because with out it your a nobody ?
Anyway One thing for sure here, and that there are the real dealers, and any one that is the real deal can spot the fakers quicker than a morning yawn.
Regardless quiet or godlike it is entertaining here, reading the words of the chosen ones, it brightens my day and gives me a laugh.
I know it is probably not ever possible but I would love to work with some of these so called superstars for a few days, now that would be fun.
