1. Celebrate your success
We all have successes each and everyday. Some days the successes are huge, and other days they may seem small and almost trivial.
Regardless of which it might be, never allow yourself to end a day without celebrating by congratulating yourself on a job well done.
2. Support and refer others
Helping others is one of the best ways to help yourself. In the words of Zig Ziglar, the best way for you to achieve your goals is by helping others achieve their goals.
3. Be proud of who you are and the way you help your customers
Successful salespeople are proud of the job they do. This isn’t boasting; it’s being confident and positive. When you’re positive, outgoing and confident, it is amazing how more responsive people are you come in contact with.
Customers aren’t looking to do business with negative people.
4. Make the tough call now
Putting off the tough call is one of the worst things anyone can do, because all it does is eat away at you and suck energy that should be used to go after building the business.
If you have a difficult customer who needs to be called back, don’t put the call off, thinking somehow it will go away. Deal with it quickly. Not only will you feel better, but the sooner you deal with it, the less worked up the customer will become.
5. Associate with winners and other successful people
Your probability is going to be much greater to become a top performing salesperson if you associate with other high-performing salespeople.
Negative people suck life out of those around them. They do this for one simple reason: It helps them feel good by bringing those around them down to their level.
