I believe attitude is everything! When I’m not administering sales tips and time management techniques, my clients know I’m good for some straight up attitude adjustments. This is a complete list of all my motivational blog posts.
Here you’ll read about ways to overcome gossip, write powerful affirmations, and have a winning attitude in all areas of your life.
How often have you patted yourself on the back for signing up for a new exercise class or spending two hours researching prospects? Now, how many times have you gone on to drop the ball on those things?
We humans struggle with follow-through. It’s one of our regular downfalls. We’re great at taking that first step, but often pretty terrible at seeing things through.
We miss out on a lot of opportunities because of it. What is it that stops us, and how do we get past it?
We’ve all been there. You’re driving home at the end of a long day, and you’re totally spent. Whether it was a challenging day full of long meetings, or an amazing day where you finally scored a verbal “yes” from the prospect, you feel wiped out. Your cup is totally empty.
You may find yourself mentally cataloging the things you need to do when you get home. Making dinner feels impossible, so you swing into Papa John’s. This, my friend, is a prime example of decision fatigue. While it might seem like no big deal, it can manifest in ways that are detrimental to your career and your life. But it’s easy to combat if you understand it.
I beat the drum of positivity a lot, I know. But it’s for a good reason. Studies have shown that positive people are naturally more successful because they’re able to shake off the small stuff and overcome routine setbacks.
If you think you’re not a positive person and you were just born that way, then you’re wrong! Positivity is a choice! It is 100% up to you. I’ve got four ways to help you get there.
The world of sales can be cutthroat at times. Every day is filled with competition and high expectations. It’s easy to feel like you’re lagging behind when you see other people crushing their goals.
It takes work to accept that someone else winning doesn’t mean you’re losing. We’ve talked before about the importance of reframing your thinking so that you’re living in an abundance mentality, but to truly understand your scarcity mindset, you need to find its root.
Why is self-confidence so important in sales? Frankly, people like being around confident people. Confidence is attractive.
The more confident you feel, the better your conversations will be when meeting with a prospect, and the better you’ll feel about how your process went. I have a few ideas on how to improve your self-confidence.
Resilience is a word you hear a lot in the business world. But what does it really mean? Most people think of it as a measure of how quickly you can get back to “life as it used to be,” but that’s not quite right.
The real meaning of “resilience” focuses, rather, on how fast you can adjust. How long does it take you to accept the new “normal”? We’ve talked about how important it is to cultivate the ability to bounce back from routine setbacks. This can be especially key when dealing with a “team shake-up”—a sudden, key personnel change in your team.
We’ve talked a lot on this blog about how attitude is everything, and how you’re 100 percent in control of it. How you process and respond to adversity factors heavily into how successful you’ll be.
I can hear you saying, “That’s easy for you to say, Dew; you’re always so positive!” Don’t give me that excuse. I wasn’t always this way, and neither were many of my clients. How can working on your response to adversity change the way your world works?
