How do you psych yourself up for that really important sales call? Special clothes? Self-talk? Loud music?

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

The sales gurus have lots of ideas. But, never mind that for now. This Sales Tweet is about self-analysis. What do you do to psych yourself up when lots of chips are on the buyer-seller table? Think about each thing you do and when you do it. Think about the details of these things. Get a piece of paper and write down at least 3 things. Think about - WHY?

2 types of people succeed in business: (1) those who naturally 'get it' and (2) those who observe well & learn.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

There are only 2 types of people who experience meaningful success in business:

  1. Those few, the intuitive, who somehow naturally 'get it' and 'seek & solve' their way for as long as it takes to obtain success. 
  2. Those few who observe and attend to mentors [who are willing to help them], emulate heroes' best qualities and sooner or later, after much work, 'get it'. 

In business, no other types of people achieve meaningful success.

Energy is primal. Your energy is your gift. How are you making best use of it?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

In 1911, James Allen wrote - "Energy is a moral virtue, its opposing vice being laziness. As a virtue, it can be cultivated, and the lazy man can become energetic by forcibly arousing himself to exertion."

James Allen picked Energy as the 1st of his 'Eight Pillars of Prosperity'. 

Energy - that's the starting point of all achievement!

Educate your brain: don't just stuff it full of facts and demand it work harder - mould it so it does a good job of thinking.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If you are thrilled with the way your mind and brain are serving you...terrific!

If you are not thrilled - take your mind to a better place...as one example, train your mind how to think more positively...another example, train your mind how to govern self-control.

If you think you are too busy then you are thinking wrong.

I favour abundance thinking over scarcity mindsets. 

If I decide I think "I'm too busy" then I have selected a scarcity mindset with respect to time, the most-precious commodity...or darned close to it.

So - I must not think "I'm too busy."

And - I must leave "I'm too busy" to the people who choose to embrace those scarcity mindsets. 

Making new errors proves you are innovative and learning from your errors proves you are open-minded and change-tolerant.

Change is a good thing...even if you disagree with that, you must agree there's a lot of it out there so one might as well get accustomed to it.

Fear of making mistakes is a real spirit killer.

Constructive criticism is an Oxymoron.

With just a little help, Creativity springs back to life.
