Do you want to be successful and sell more than anyone else, or do you want to fit in with the crowd?

 

One thing I have learned in my work with entrepreneurs over the last 10 years is that few if any of them ever followed the crowd.

Fewer were conforming.

Even fewer we worried about what other people thought.

 

They were simply focused on success.

What about you?

 

Today I want to look at 3 simple points related to success in sales.

 

1/       To be successful you have to be different.

 0010

Per John Huntsman: “ Failure often is the result of following the crowd.”

 

How are you prospecting – like everyone else or are you doing something different?

Are you just sitting around sending out emails like everyone else, or perhaps you have picked up the phone or gotten in your car and started knocking on doors.

 

Are you thinking email is so easy, why do anything else?

 

How many mailers have you gotten recently?  Perhaps you should try something different.

 

Not getting the business you think you could?

What are you doing about it?

Get started today.

Start thinking about what you can do that others are not, then do it.

 

To be successful you have to be different.

 

 

2/       To be successful you have to take a risk.

0020 

Per William Shedd: “A ship in harbor is safe but that is not what ships are built for.”

 

Are you doing what is safe, what is easy?

Or are you taking that risk

 

 

 

A sales person not excelling or not going for the gold or not making it happen is like that ship in the harbor.

 

If you really believe you were made to sell, then you need to get out there and do it.  You are on the team to be a star, get out there and be the star.

 

Start reading stuff from people who have done it and are doing it.

Start listening to stuff from successful people.

Make a commitment to be the best, not just one of many.

 

Do something different. 

Make calls early, make call late, make calls during lunch.

Wow, maybe just make calls?

 

To be successful you have to take a risk.

 

 

3/       Today is the day to start making it happen.


 

Per Dr. David Jeremiah: “Remember today is the day you thought about yesterday when you said: ‘I can do that tomorrow’.”

 

Well it is tomorrow and are you doing it?

As I always say, action creates success.

If you can do something, do it.

Don’t think about it.

Don’t procrastinate.

Do it.

 

Today is the day you make the commitment, but more.  Today is the day you start doing something different.  Today is the day you take that chance.

So, get out there and make it happen.

 

There you have it.

Successful Sales People Are different.

 

Are you going to be successful or just another sales person.

 

Get out there and do it.
