What’s your take on Sales? Professional or Amateur?

Fotolia_139157580_S.jpg

You wouldn’t believe that most career professionals don’t know very much about selling. To become a great salesperson, you not only need to be committed to the profession but also have dedication and willingness to learn. Not to mention to have a desire to be great.

“Commitments cannot take place without an action to follow”

 

In order to become great--you need to commit.
Committing is devoting oneself completely to something.
A professional devotes themselves all the way to a career in selling.

Grant Cardone defines a professional and an amateur in the following way:

Professional: a person who is engaged in a specified activity as one’s main paid occupation rather than a pastime

Amateur: one who engages in a pursuit, study, science/sport as a pastime rather than a profession OR someone lacking experience and competence in an art/science

 

To move from an amateur to a professional, observe, take notes, look for patterns, study.

Did you know that once you neglect anything, you will start to dislike it?

Grant made a point. Once you are completely committed to your career, you will see results immediately. Become a fanatic he said; someone who’s insatiable about their commitment to getting something done.

You may come across some people who don’t like selling. They may think it is because they’ve been rejected a few times, or because their lazy, or even because they don’t like people...There are always answers for everything. However, the real reason is actually that they don’t know what they're doing! With this lack of understanding--there’s no control, it leads to undesirable results, ending in the dislike of the idea of selling.

All in all, the first step in success is to eliminate any other options available to you and to JUST COMMIT.

Selling, a Way of Life

By Tiana Vonghachack

The most powerful people in the world all have one thing in common: they know how to sell. To be one of those people, you must learn how to do the exact same thing. Your entire livelihood depends on this ability and it has all your life up to this very moment.

The #1 reason that a business fails is because of its inability to sell products in quantities great enough at prices high enough. It is odd to think, but selling is actually a prerequisite of life. You will find yourself on a day to day basis having to sell, persuade, negotiate, convince and debate. The ability to sell your beliefs, dreams, and ideas is what will open doors for you in the business world and in your personal life. It is ESSENTIAL.

“The best things in life come as a result of something extra that you do”.

Commissions can come in forms of recognition, a raise/promotion, getting votes, getting new friends, and any other positive result of an action you took. Commissions are rewards, and in order to succeed...you need to exceed expectations. Go just a bit further than anyone else, and you will see the fruits of your efforts.

The economy relies on the ability of salespeople. A salesperson can be anyone who is motivated by the ability to produce.

Without them there would be no:

  • Distribution
  • Storage
  • Or advertising!

It’s imperative to your work and personal life to understand the true importance of being able to sell. The sooner this is accepted, the sooner you can make your way to new successes.

Time Management, The Art of Structuring Your Life

Fotolia_80788637_XS.jpg

Structure relates to how can we make use of our time more effectively. People who structure their life usually get more out of their lives.

At the beginning of the week, Monday -  each and every one of us has 168 hours to spend by the time midnight strikes on Sunday.

Basically, we can divide the week into 3 buckets of time:  sleep, work, personal.

Time allows us to structure our lives, which people structure in different ways - the question is, in which way do you personally structure your time between those 3 buckets:

·        Some tend to use a lot of time for sleep and personal leaving less time for work

·        Some tend to use a lot of time for work leaving less time for sleep and personal

·        Some others tend to allocate close to a proportional time for each

Too much time of sleep and personal time and less time of work provides an unbalanced structure since monetary constraints are involved in making your life more complicated and less meaningful.  We all know that financial insecurity and constrain creates stress.

On the other hand, when people invest too much time working, they sacrifice sleep and sacrifice their personal lives ( by personal we mean own time dedicated to family, social life and own).  Sacrificing health due to lack of sleep and sacrificing relations due to lack of time are two factors of an unfulfilled life full of stress.

The trick to happiness is related to a balanced structure of life in which all 3 buckets take the same priority; they might not be exactly structured in 1/3 each but close to it. This structure will allow a person to enjoy financial security and enjoyment while at the same have the related time to enjoy family, social and personal life.

Use Fear to Fuel Your Success #3

trees-forest-people-women-jungle-path-9766-wallhere-2.jpg

We have all heard the old adage that says “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”…

But if you think about it, there isn’t much room for our own attitude in there; we’d have to wait and see if we don’t die in the process, and only then we can realize whether or not it can make us stronger.

 

Well, I’m ok with it; but I believe that there are times when we can decide in advance that we’re going to survive it and that we’re going to grow because of it… so I’d rather say:

Don’t let fear stop you, make it strengthen you.

 

Fear can make you stronger; it can tell you when you’re on the right track… you can tell by its intensity; because if you look back and look closely, the times when you were scared the most, were the times you were after something you really wanted or trying something new and adventurous. So, if it doesn’t scare you, you should consider revising your choices; raise the stakes and the standards involved, and keep going until it feels right… and by that, I mean scared to the bones.

 

Fear actually can show you the way.

It tells you that there’s something you still need to work on; some preparing you need to be done, training, persistence, or maybe the patience for when things take longer to come about.

Let your fear to be the force that thrusts you forward; let it guide you to what you need to be doing… and then go do it.

 

Next week, we’ll talk about the last aspect of fear you can use to Fuel Your Success.

Until then, stay strong!
