Happy Sunday, my friends! My latest YouTube video is posted and it’s for all the sales professionals out there looking for a mental edge or a mindset boost.
I’ve made a living in the sales world for 29 years, first as a B2B sales rep and then developing training for sales professionals. W
hen we develop sales training in the corporate world, we focus, understandably, on selling skills and product knowledge.
I’ve always contended that the part that’s always left out is the mental side of selling. Selling is a mentally tough game and you won’t last long without a mindset steeped n confidence, determination, and belief in yourself.
I’ve written many sales affirmations over the years, starting with affirmations for myself when I was selling and for the last 15 years as creator of TAS.
For this video, I wrote and recorded 10 brand new, powerful affirmations. I believe they are 10 (actually 12 because I know a good salesperson appreciates a deal) best sales affirmations I’ve ever recorded. I hope you’ll find them empowering and inspiring for you.
Remember, affirmations are not a one and done tool. For best results, you should listen to them regularly for a couple weeks to infuse your consciousness and then periodically to maintain them.
Being a fantastic sales manager is a different skillset than being a fantastic sales person. Yet, sales performance is often a precursor to being promoted into sales management.
These affirmations are directed specifically at sales managers. They encourage key mindsets for success and developing the confidence to be the leader your sales team needs. All affirmations benefit from persistent listening. Bookmark this video and watch it often for best results. The affirmations are repeated in first-person and second-person for maximum effect. Believe in yourself as a sales leader. Believe in your team. Let the successes multiply!
I am a great sales manager and I get better every single day.
I meet my reps where they are to improve their skills and their results.
I make struggling reps good. I make good reps great. I make great reps even better.
I am constantly improving my game to improve my team’s game.
My team is a quota-exceeding machine!
My team’s results are grabbing the attention of senior leadership in my organization.
Just in case no one has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!
