A rope can be wrapped around the neck of a calf to catch it. Although it may try to escape, it will not because another person is holding the rope. Do you ever feel like you have a rope around the neck? Do you ever feel like you aren’t making any progress at work? Do you ever feel like you are being pulled back by the rope every time you try to make progress? We all know that customers complain, sales reps get upset, friends don’t support us, competition is tough, quality issues arise, and so forth. You get frustrated, confused, and tired.
Right and Wrong Forces
Every person has a unique combination of right- and wrong thinking. This message will focus on right and wrong. There’s darkness in every dream; there’s doubt in every ounce of faith; there’s despair in every valley of hope; there’s despair in every mile of determination. People let their wrong thoughts rule their thinking or let the good ideas slip by unnoticed. Which one will lead your life? Which one will win? This is a constant struggle for every person. Right living is like playing golf. You feel great if you hit a few shots well, but if you miss a few, you lose your concentration and confidence. Do you want to take it out on your teammates?
It is essential to living the good life. There are endless opportunities to succeed in the sales industry. Many people are good-intentioned but fail to realize their full potential. People in business can sometimes find it difficult to believe in integrity and provide excellent customer service. This is especially true when trying to apply these principles every day. It’s one thing to say it, but it’s quite another to actually do it every day! They are unable to overcome their negative past habits and bad images. There are some enlightened leaders who are driven to succeed. Despite all obstacles, their vision of professional sales is brilliantly executed. This attracts attention from all sides. Consider the salmon that swim upstream each year to reach spawning waters. Although the journey is often complicated and sometimes fatal, their inner voice drives them towards their goal. Every experience in life can be a victory or a failure. It’s up to you to decide if it is good or not. Shakespeare wrote: “Nothing is bad except the thought that it makes it so.”
Make the Right Choice
Consider a time in your past when you were the best at work, made the most of your sales, helped a friend, had a lot of fun or loved your spouse or significant others. How did it feel? How did the time go by? It is possible that you felt happy, fulfilled, comfortable, and energized. Most likely, time passed by without your knowledge. Think back to a time when you were unhappy with your work, ignored your friends, grieved, or argued with someone. How did it feel? How did the time go? It is possible that you thought disillusioned, depressed, sad, or even exhausted. Most likely, time moved at a snail’s speed. There are a few common traits in all of the situations that you can recall. Your mind was filled with thoughts about the experience. You also felt emotions. Second, you felt emotions. They don’t have to be positive or negative. The passing of time is as constant as the sky, even though you might not have realized it. Fourth, how did you respond to each experience? What were your experiences like? This is key to selling leadership success and the key to motivating your team to achieve excellence.
Or did you just reach out and grab the best, or did the world pull you along? You may have focused on the problem, taken little action if necessary, and stayed focused when things didn’t go your way. You probably saw all the possibilities and let your creativity flow when things turned out well. The experience was a positive one. You were able to think rightly about it and took positive steps instead of resentful or frustrated. You are what you think. You have the freedom to choose.
Your greatest gift, both professionally and personally, is the ability to choose your thoughts. To be true champions, we must do this in all situations. How do you do this? How? Consider the needs of your sales team. You’ll be able to think right and do the right things more often if you learn how to feel right. You will be able to cut through the obstacles that prevent you from reaching excellence in sales management once you have learned how to do this.
One day, a prophet was standing on a hill. His followers heard him say, “I quit.” They were shocked and wept, saying that they needed him. They would do anything to help him. The prophet smiled and asked, “Live joyfully.” The prophet smiled and asked, “Live joyously.” But the followers shook their heads and moved slowly. This was impossible. They wanted to dream and talk about it. You’re worse than the man who couldn’t cook enough food and didn’t want to do anything about it.
Customers decide what is right for them. Listening to your customers and paying attention to their needs will help you choose the best actions. This is the only way to overcome rejections, complaints, and dissatisfaction. Smile and do your job with joy. Always be polite and thank others for their help. You can think creatively about ways you can help customers. Problems can be solved quickly and kindly. Collaborate. Customers deserve the best.
To cross the stream, a scorpion was once allowed to ride along with a frog’s back. The scorpion bit the frog somewhere along the way. The scorpion stung the frog, and the frog said, “Why did that happen? Now we’ll both die!” The scorpion said, “I don’t know. It’s just in my nature.” Is this your nature? What is your heart? Are you optimistic or negative when it comes to motivating others and selling to customers? If you choose the right thoughts, your actions will produce outstanding results.
