Thankful, Blessed, Humbled. Reflections on What Sales Means to Me.

To all my customers — a very big thank you for believing in me and allowing me to be part of your organization.

To all my readers – thank you for taking the time to read, comment, and share my content, whether it be a book or a blog post.

To my viewers – thank you for watching my videos and sharing them with others.

To my prospects – thank you for allowing me to create a relationship with you.

To those who have said “no” to me – thank you! I respect your decision and I accept it, and yes, I do hope one day I will be able to call you “customer.”

To all my competitors – thank you for making me better.  Iron sharpens iron and I hope I’ve helped make you better, too.

As we here in the United States celebrate Thanksgiving this week, it truly is a time to pause and reflect.  I can’t help but be thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given. My hope is I use each opportunity to its fullest. As I look back on the conversations I’ve had, the emails I’ve received and the LinkedIn exchanges I’ve had, it humbles me.  Sales is built on a foundation of integrity and I hope each conversation has demonstrated integrity.

Humbled, thankful and honored are more than words to me, and I hope they are to you, too.

This week, take the time to pause and reflect, and I’m sure you will find numerous instances over the past year where you had a conversation for which you are thankful.  Sales truly is a journey — a journey of influence and impact.

Thank you for the privilege of our relationship in whatever form it takes.  As thankful as I am for each of you, I’m thankful the most for my family and my faith. My family is everything to me, and although we will not all be together for Thanksgiving, we will still be family.

My faith is central to me. It is without hesitation the core of who I am and my compass.  Without a doubt, everything I have and everything I ever will be is derived from my faith in God, and that is what I am thankful for the most.

  3. Thank you Mark!
    Humility is a very attractive trait today, most likely because it is more and more rare.

    Thank you for your articles Mark, for your posts and your videos.
    I have always been inspired by them and, reading this post, I’ve found the deepest reason in the final part: faith in God is a central part for you as it is for me.
