“Shallow Hal” is a movie that stars Jack Black. It’s about a guy that only sees the surface beauty of a person.
This all changes after Tony Robbins alters his perception. Tony plays a “mind trick” on him that only lets him see the inner beauty of people.
What is the end result? Shallow Hal finds real meaning in his life. He also discovers the love of his life. Shallow Hal has never been happier.
However his “friend” convinces Tony Robbins to reverse Shallow Hal’s perception back to his previous norm.
This results in Shallow Hal discovering that the love of his life is a very overweight woman. She still possesses the same inner beauty, but not the outer beauty.
He is then faced with a personal moral challenge; “Do I continue in relationship with a person that doesn’t possess physical beauty?”
In addition to his personal question of morality it brings up another great question:
Do you believe it’s ethical to change the way somebody sees the value of another person? Or even their own value?
I believe it is. And, I believe it’s a great lesson in sales and value.
It’s important to create a definition of sales that we can agree. So here’s a good one:
“Sales is the act of exchanging goods and services for something of value.”
This is an easy definition for anyone to accept. So the only questions in this definition of sales are centered on the word “value.”
The first question is fairly easy to answer. We are talking money.
The second question is tougher, because, it’s about your perception of value. And, it’s also about other people’s perception of value.
“Your sales value, or how much you charge, is clearly a matter of perception.”
