Let me apologize – first and foremost you may be wondering where the fudge have I been?
So – I have been working on a book and I’m actually going to share with you one of my chapters that I think will help you!
I’m writing a sales book and this chapter is on being a hard worker. It’s about sales but the message applicable to virtually any situation.
Essentially this is a quick kick in groin; it’s the jumpstart I needed.
Please read on and tell me what you think!
More content coming soon – I promise.
“How can you reap, If you don’t sow?”
My friends, I saw that quote in a daycare and thought to myself that this quote is the mystery of sales explained by a six year old.
I’ll update that translation since most of you are reading this in the comfort of air-conditioning and not breaking your back in a field.
“How can you expect to get paid / close deals if you don’t work?”
Being a hard worker only takes effort – similar to weightlifting, you only get the results in sales (and life in general) if you put in the work plain and simple.
Your prospects aren’t waking up thinking about you and your product. It’s on you to introduce yourself and your business.
Again – think about it – “How can you reap if you don’t sow?”
Point blank, you need to do the work, you’ll have good days, you’ll have bad days but as long as you’re grinding, the odd’s of closing more business are in your favor.
Essentially what this means is be disciplined and force yourself to work even when you don’t want to.
Here’s a helpful hint – try to make this positive! You work hard to have a better life right?
When you work, you’re trying to improve yourself – that’s badass!
Like all great counterintuitive messages, you’ll come to find that discipline eventually equals freedom.
