TSE 1506: Why Transforming Your Mindset Before Coordinating a Sale Makes All the Difference for Your Numbers

Like with any job, your sales performance will be far better with the proper mindset. A focused attitude, combined with a strong feeling of self-worth and knowing who you are as a human being, affects all areas of your life. In today’s episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald is joined by Robert Workman to learn how to empower ourselves to have a mindset conducive to sales success.

You need to have confidence in both your work and yourself.  

  • Have confidence that you’ll show up as yourself, regardless of what meeting, event, or circumstance you find yourself in. 
  • Many salespeople lack a strong sense of confidence but finding that confidence empowers you to do whatever you need to do to succeed.

How you can be more focused as a sales professional: 

  • Once you’re confident in yourself, you can accomplish what you know is suitable for your career rather than what other people might tell you is correct.
  • Robert’s book Selling – The Most Dangerous Game encourages you to look at the leadership and style of work in your workplace to determine if it is the right environment for you.
  • Have the confidence to acknowledge if this workplace will be conducive to your success rather than forcing something that doesn’t work.

To ensure success, take ownership of your time.

  • Eliminating distractions is paramount to the success of a salesperson. 
  • When dealing with adversity, you have to have a total belief in yourself.
  • You have to believe you can walk into a business meeting and accomplish what you need to do.

Are you sick of crickets? As a salesperson, the pain of reaching out with phone calls or emails and not receiving a response is real.

But all text messaging is not created equal. 85% of people prefer text over email and phone calls because they want to engage in a conversation, not listen to bots. Be more like people and start having conversations that end in the conversions you want. Try Skipio at www.Skipio.com.
