The Sales Evangelist

Jonathan Diaz, Motivation, Taking Risks Salespeople don’t play it safe at all times. You need to take risks, challenge expectations, and do big things to succeed. How do you do that? Listen as Jonathan Diaz shares his thoughts. 

Increase your motivation

  • Jonathan and his siblings love Kobe shoes and back in 2010, Kobe wore bright lime green shoes called The Grinch for a big Christmas game they played. Jonathan really wanted to get a pair for himself. 
  • Nike launched their sneaker app and they “dropped” the shoes, which meant you’d need to log in at the time they drop to enter a raffle and have a chance to buy the shoes.  
  • The usual response for this app is a big sorry since somebody else has been selected. It’s really rare to win it. 
  • Even when Jonathan knew that his chances were slim, still he tried to do what he could to win it. He reached out to his friends and family to help him. He did his best to get what he wanted. 
  • His wife told him that his name wasn’t picked and that he wasn’t chosen. But he didn’t stop there. He kept on until he got the shoes he wanted! 
  • It seemed impossible for Jonathan to get the shoes but he was motivated and he persevered. He had a vision and he put his mind to it. 
  • The same is true for sales: when the odds are stacked against you, you find a way to make it happen. 
  • If you want something, you need to do everything in your power to get it. 
  • Success is a combination of hard work and luck. You need to put in the effort to be rewarded.
