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.
“Sales are contingent upon the attitude of the salesman – not the attitude of the prospect.”
~ W. Clement Stone
Few careers are as rewarding as a career in sales and few are as lonely when things aren’t going well. I spent a number of years in direct sales. I experienced the highs of success and the lows of a slump. For the past 10 years, I have written B2B sales training for a major corporation.
All of this experience has taught me one important thing about sales. Motivation is critical to ongoing sales success. Perhaps you have a mentor, a colleague, or a great manager who is there to pump you up when things go south. The truth is we all know that the only source of motivation we can rely upon is ourselves.
Here are some sales affirmations that I have used over the years. I hope you will find them helpful. Now get out there and bust that quota!
A great sales person lives within me! Today that sales person shows up at my appointments!
Month after month, I am the top salesperson in my office!
I am the best salesperson in my office and this month I prove it!
My most important product is me! I believe in that product and I am always ready to sell it!
My company sets my quota, but I set my goals! This month I blow my quota out of the water!
I always have a funnel filled with quality prospects and leads.
I am a winner! I look like a winner! I sell like a winner! I succeed like a winner!
I love the pressure of cold calling. The pressure sharpens my skills and gets me more sales!
Excellence is my personal brand. My commitment to it is unwavering!
I believe in my selling abilities!
The word no doesn’t phase me. When I hear it I think, “Let the selling begin!”
I win deals by outplanning and out-preparing the competition.
I am a shoe-in for president’s club this year!
I think positive and prosperous thoughts for myself, my sales team, my company, and my customers. In my selling world, everyone wins!
I thrive on objections. I listen to the objection. I process the objection and I handle it!
Nobody closes a deal the way I close a deal!
Stay inspired! You have no more powerful ally in sales than your mind!
