Sales specialists, Evoque Innovations has outlined what they believe to be the key to success after an interesting story they discovered about a TV competition winner.
Evoque Innovations regularly runs inspiring morning meetings for their contractors which offer top tips on a number of crucial business areas including motivational figures, habits for success, sales techniques and much more. In one of the firm’s recent motivational meetings, they covered the story of John Carpenter who was the first-ever top prize winner on the U.S version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
On the November 19, 1999, episode, Carpenter proceeded to advance to the million-dollar question without using any lifelines. On the final question, he opted to use the ‘phone a friend’ lifeline to call his father, not to ask for help but to tell him that he was going to win the show. The win gave Carpenter national recognition and led him to appear on several talk shows.
However, Evoque Innovations was intrigued to learn that when an interviewer caught up with Carpenter many years later, despite guest appearing in many TV shows over the years, he was still in the same job as when he appeared on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
Evoque Innovations outlined how Carpenter was clearly very educated as he was able to answer every question correctly to win a million dollars. The firm feels that the winner did not make the most of this education or what he was given since the show to become even more successful. Evoque Innovations is confident that John Carpenter could have turned that money into more money if he had put his knowledge to good use.
Evoque Innovations revealed how this is a lesson to all ambitious individuals that the key to success is for a person to use what they know and what they have been given to their advantage. The firm states that there is no point to having a good education or continuing to learn if that education is not going to be used as an advantage. The firm highlights how for example a person would not ask for a mentor and then ignore that mentor’s advice, they would use that advice to further their career. Evoque Innovations believes this should be the same for every opportunity that could aid success.
