    Really liked the video Rus.

    "What's the essence of any sales position? It’s not how well you sell or talk. It’s really how well you can take a hit and how long you take to feel sorry for yourself."
    Barbara Corcoran

    Avoiding the hit is enemy to sales greatness.

    So many good people come on this forum and share their experiences of not liking cold calling by phone or cold calling in person. But no way around it, that is the price that needs to paid if we are going to achieve something better than average

      That's Huge. And I know it's true. And most people will go through anything to avoid that hit. That's why they don't sell.

      And what salespeople don't know...is that there are no hits. The pain is self inflicted.

      If you're a boxer? Those are hits.

      Sticks and stones man, sticks and stones.

    The secret ingredient is that, in bouncing right back in short time, shaking it off and moving forward, those successful sales people:

    1. by so doing, create more time to have selling opportunities, which then lead to more sales;

    2. Aren't influenced as much by self-imposed negativity or beliefs, which cripple others.

      Doesn't it all come from your mindset. Like if my client says no, it's usually my fault, because if they truly understood what I'm offering them, and believed me there is no way they could say no. So either I was unclear or I was unbelievable. And that's on me, not on them.

      It all boils down to the classic Jay Abraham Strategy of Preeminence.

        I think most sellers would agree that sales training and techniques are important success ingredients to any sales professional and should not be discounted.

        But is it the foundation of a successful sales career? Is it the true essence of what successful selling is all about?

        When we talk about sales development and achievement what foundation do we want to build our castle on.

        All of the techniques and sales training that exist in world could be freely given to us but it wouldn't matter if our castle is built on top of a "sink hole"

        That's the challenge of being human. We complicate things too much and play head games with ourselves. We sometimes don't see things as they truly are.

        As sales professionals, our mission is to put our product or service into the hands of our prospects. Some will accept our offer but most won't. That's business!

        What Corcoran is saying is that we stay the course. That we keep offering. That we keep moving. That we don't slow down. That we get up quickly when we get knocked down and that we don't think about it too much

        Our chances of total sales success are much better with that attitude. Our offer technique could be as simple as, "Hi my name is Bob and I'm offering X today. Do you want it?"

        You should expect the number of prospects that will tell you go to hell to be outrageously high. Techniques and sales training could lessen that number.

        But if we're professional and we can handle this pain and have the ability to stay the course, success will ultimately be ours.

        The power is in the mindset..

          I think you're right. Corcoran saying the best sales people are the ones who also bounce back faster and who have something to prove...is kind of like saying the best basketball players are tall and want to win. The traits aren't the essence.

    I can for one attribute "attitude" to success in sales from experience. So can my bank account! lol

    Solid advice, sometimes having a chip on the shoulder makes all the difference since that person has something to prove.

    She also mentions something else really important: she fires people quickly. Too many people hang on to people who are not right for their team. Hire slowly, fire quickly.
