There are lots of traits/habits called for to be a successful sales individual. Determination. Imagination. Arrangement. Superior customer care. Danger taking. Stability.
You understand the one characteristic that isn't called for?
Being a chicken!
This is one of my 7 year old niece's favorite expressions - she suches as to challenge people by claiming "Do not be a chicken!".
I have no concept where this expression comes from- do you? It constantly makes me laugh though!
One point I do know - no one likes to feel hen, resemble a hen or be called a hen.
So what in my twisted Diva mind makes up being a chicken?
Staying clear of dispute.
Going with the flow even when you recognize the circulation is headed over a falls.
Waiting for excellence to occur.
Never taking a risk.
Having a wishbone instead of a foundation.
Excuses are your center name.
Terrified of slipping up.
Hey look - we have all been poultries at one time or one more. But EESH - it just does not feel excellent.
We are headed right into one of the greatest sales periods for the majority of businesses. These organisations will make over 50% of their annual income in the following couple of months.
Just how are you positioned to capitalize on all the chance?
Have you produced a pilot job? Raised your prices? Treated your customers with outstanding client service? Attempted something brand-new? Taken a chance?
Remember this line from your Diva:.
Hens Do Not Take Chances.
However Divas Do!
So ask on your own:.
What have I been avoiding/regretting/denying?
What tiny favorable action can I take to move me onward?
An excellent publication that I read in 1994 as well as still enjoy today is" Feeling the Anxiety and also Do It Anyhow" by Susan Jeffers. Hit the library - most likely to a used book shop or your neighborhood bookstore and also obtain it TODAY.
It is time for you to SHED the chicken skin and move in the directions of your desires!
