Saul Marquez used to sell toilet paper and today he shares a very inspiring story about how he went from doing that to making six figures in the medical sales industry and hopefully, you can glean some insights from it so you too can break into your dream career.
Here are the highlights of my conversation with Saul:
How to break into your dream career:
- Be so clear about your goal and be committed to it.
Be willing to wake up earlier and go to bed later. Be willing to give up things in order to get it done. Make it happen.
When you create that moment for yourself or experience that point of no return. This is when you become clear and committed instead of just being interested.
Strategies for staying committed:
- Set goals and reinforce your goals with people and environments that help you succeed. Make sure your goals are smart, clear, compelling, and that they answer yours why.
- Surround yourself with people who have done that. Regardless of what aspect of your life, get those people around you.
- Create the environment around you. Create a vision board of what you want to achieve.
- Be so clear about your intentions and invite others to be a part of them.
Write down your goals and put out your intentions. And when it’s so clear, you invite others to do it.
- Add value to others.
The more value you add to people, the more people are going to want to help you out. If you set that goal to help one person every single day and do that for the rest of your life, you’re going to have an army of people that want to help achieve your goals too. Piecemeal your dreams in a way that’s going to help you achieve that.
The Compound Effect
Saul recommends reading the book the Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. The idea behind it is that every single day or week, do something toward the attainment of that dream or goal.
