Some salespeople resist buying the company line. They resist buying the hype. They question motives. Their cynicism is a recipe for mediocrity. And it's contagious.

I don't always look at cynicism as being negative. Face it we live in a world which began many centuries ago in the west with the traveling medicine salesman. Billed as a potion to cure everything. Today we live in a time where every product is the new miracle and every business person says choose me! I know the secrets to success that nobody else know.

Cynicism doesn't always hurt your ability to believe, it also helps you sorth through B.S. and false claims.

I know you usually don't answer comments here but I felt like saying it anyways and voted.

Hi Anthony.

The only references I remember about being coerced into drinking Kool-Aid were from Jim Jones in Guyana, where over 900 people were murdered via said drink (or by being shot if they refused to drink).

Is there some other cultural reference to the masses being asked to drink Kool-Aid of which I'm unaware?
