The worst thing you can do for your level of sales motivation is to allow yourself to be swayed by reading too many news headlines. Be careful what you read, especially when it comes to the headlines. The media is saturated with negativity regarding the economy right now, so avoid jumping from one news website to another merely to catch the blurbs. If you need to get your news from the internet, only go to one source. This will prevent you from being inundated by the pessimism so it should interfere less with your sales motivation.
