Sales Training Tip: 7 Things To Say To Yourself To Guarantee Failure

I have recently finished reading “The Power Of Your Subconscious mind” by Dr Joseph Murphy and it really struck a chord with me based on the current business climate. I have been hearing a lot of negative talk from many business owners and sales people I meet recently.

If you are determined to set yourself up to fail I have drawn up the 7 key things you should say to yourself on a daily basis to ensure that you speed up your failure as soon as possible. Might as well get it over and done with right?

  1. I can’t…………………….
  2. I musn’t………………….
  3. I haven’t got a chance.
  4. It’s no use………………
  5. The world is going to the dogs…..
  6. There’s no point trying…….
  7. You just can’t win…………..

Why not vote for the one that you think will help you fail the quickest?

    Thank You. Would it work if you just repeated to yourself – “All of the above?”

You hit the nail on the head. Too many salespeople are just trying to ride out the economy. What kind of strategy for success it that? I’m telling them to think about selling and not the economy. It’s a quick way to get that bounce back in your step.

Here’s Another One:

“I know everything I need to know.”

You’ve seen them – the sales reps who come into workshops with the attitude that they already know it all. The body language alone speaks volumes: arms crossed, eyes rolling, virtually daring anyone to say something that might interest them.

Without motivation to learn, there can be no learning at all.
