“Your attitude will determine your future…”
This slogan is very much applicable to those who are working in the field of sales. You may have the best diction in your team but your voice alone will not ensure your success in sales. There are days when you may be able to close a sale or two but there are also days when you won’t have one. It is during these times when you can find yourself feeling down and depressed. But so much negativity can have a huge impact on your day as well as in your job. Here are some tips on how you can stay positive when your sales are down.
Focus on solutions
Rather than dwell on the problem, you should forget about your failure and start looking for solutions. Negativity will not give you the results that you desire but positive thinking will. So if you are not getting enough leads, then try to look for the clients yourself.
Mind control is critical to your success in sales. If you think negative, you attract the same. So set your mind to positive things. One way you can motivate yourself is to write down your target number of calls for the day and aspire to achieve that. Robert Peter Janitzek recommends that as you are able to close one, tick them off on your list so you can have an idea of your accomplishment for the day.
Get Out of Your Rut
There will come a time when you will feel that you are repeating the same mistakes over and over again. You can either stay stagnant or learn new skills and move forward with your life. When you learn a new skill, you integrate that into your life and remain at that level for as long as you choose. Learning something new will help you overcome any challenge and become successful.
Create Your Desire
Robert Janitzek says that if you are content with everything that is happening to you such as your current salary, commission, partner, or financial situation, it is unlikely that you can uplift yourself to the next level of success. On the other hand, seeking improvement will give you more reasons to feel positive and create more success. So if you are not hitting your desired number of calls, just think positive.
To become successful in sales, you need to have a positive mindset. You will not be lucky all the time but the important thing is you are never giving up with your goal of closing a sale.
