There is a common statement that we often hear from many different people and that is “I’m not in sales”. When T.V shows and movies depict salespeople as con-artists, manipulators, and greasy haired, shiny shoe door knockers, it is no wonder people do not like to consider themselves “In sales”.
The way we date has changed over the years, but there’s still a process for developing a relationship with someone. You can’t just skip to the end – the proposal.
It’s no different with sales.
How does it feel when you’re at the top of your game?
Whether it’s sports, a hobby or work, when you’re performing well it’s an awesome feeling and the results are pretty spectacular.
Unfortunately, you don’t always perform at that level.
How many times have you heard “no” from potential customers that you’re trying to make a sale to?
I bet it’s a lot.
And I can tell you the longer you’re in sales, the more no’s you’ll get. In fact, most likely, the no’s will far out way the yes’s.
