“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”
~ Paulo Coelho
THEN… Your Energy and Confidence Will Drive Your Actions
As yet another challenging year draws to a close, it’s essential that we keep our focus on what we want so we don’t dissipate our energies in fighting things we can’t control.
I’m noticing that many Australian business owners are feeling discouraged by the constantly changing business landscape and are deliberately lowering their sights and settling for ‘second best’. This dissipates the energy and confidence they feel and project around their actions and becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
In the same way that ‘confused prospects don’t buy’, it’s equally true that ‘uncertain business conditions don’t encourage the planning, investment, and action’ that lead to tangible results.
It Starts with Focus
Paulo Coelho, the great 21st Century philosopher talks about the danger of getting so absorbed in fighting our enemies that we forget to make progress toward our own goal.
One of the things that I’m seeing is that people are afraid to focus on exactly what they want… Too many people are focusing on the enemy they don’t want (whether that is business challenges, health struggles, separation from family and friends etc).
Yes, sometimes you do need to stop and slay the enemy that’s standing in front of you…
BUT most of the time, your best course is to keep forging ahead towards your highest goals, without deflection.
Are You Settling for Second Best?
Every day – week – month – year… is a new opportunity to muster your energy and confidence and start afresh.
As I publish this we’ve just started the final quarter of 2021, but it really doesn’t matter when you’re reading it: the Call to Action is just as clear:
What are YOU going to focus on today?
Will you focus on the things that are standing in your way, OR your…
- Goals & Dreams
- Plans & Actions
- Energy & Strategy
Only the latter will help you achieve, believe, and succeed so you make progress toward your target?
The Truth About Confidence…
I learned many years ago that often the only difference between a “Yes” and a “Maybe” when it comes to sales is the threefold confidence of the sales person.
When I talk to a business, sales team, or individual who struggles to make sales, it’s often a question of confidence. In fact, if your team is not exceeding their sales goals and projections, changing the sales tools is rarely the solution: while changing the energy and confidence of the sales person transforms their results.
Do You Lack Confidence in Your Ability to Sell Consistently?
If so, you’re not alone.
Even when people are convinced of the value their product or service delivers, they often fail to project confidence in themselves. In fact, this leads to a downward spiral of results that you can see in quarterly or monthly sales figures: lack of confidence leads to fewer sales and fewer sales lower your confidence even further.
There is a Solution to Your Sales Dilemma…
It’s called practice and success.
The solution isn’t complicated, but it does take some discipline and commitment which is why I created Ready Set Sell, my 30-day sales maximiser.
It’s designed for people who don’t consider themselves natural sales people, or for people in a ‘sales slump’ who recognise the need for a helping hand to boost their confidence so that they can boost their results.
I launched this course a couple of months ago and the customer feedback I’ve returned has reinforced my thoughts about the reasons why people don’t get the results they want.
I strongly believe that this course can prove to anyone who is willing to do the work that they are:
- Far better at selling themselves and their services/products than they thought possible;
- Elevating your ability to sell and influence others makes life infinitely more fun; and
- Able to generate far more income than they thought possible.
Sadly, I’ve noticed that there are 2 types of participant:
- Those who not only invest in Ready Set Sell, and invest the time, effort, and energy to generate results from it;
- Those who purchase Ready Set Sell and hope that mere possession will magically transform their results even if they don’t follow the process – this also includes those who ‘know’ all about sales, but don’t ‘do’ anything systematically to turn their knowledge into results.
You Are Far More Successful at Sales than You Will Ever Know…
Unless you choose not to succeed and decide to just think about the future you’d like to experience.
The power of confidence is that one level of success in sales leads to more success following the snowball effect. That’s why Ready Set Sell doesn’t just lead to your best month every, but leads to steady growth in what you define as best.
When you use my technique for focusing on what you want…
AND back that focus with decisive action…
AND reflect on what is working and the progress you have made…
You become unstoppable!
