On my way to work today, I saw another alarm company which was signing up a gentleman right around the corner. After seeing that, I just wanted to reach out to you all in the industry to express that when you see someone closing a deal, don’t interfere with them, and I’ll give you two main reasons for it:
- There are so many opportunities out there, so it doesn’t matter if someone else takes one, you just keep knocking from door to door pitching your potential clients and do your best no matter what.
- More importantly, you know as much as I do, how great it feels after all that cold calling, and knocking from door to door when you get a customer and are about to close a deal. How would you feel if someone else just swoops in and interferes with your efforts and risks losing your client?
The moment you develop this mentality you’ll realize the importance and value of your sales.
Recently I was asked by a lady, “How do I stay focused” and as of lately I’ve been getting a lot of calls regarding this question.
According to me, it comes down to two major qualities in order to stay focused and get to the top of this industry.
1. The first thing that matters is to always keep building that confidence and self-esteem. You never get faltered by the hardships and just keep at it until you get that sale.
2.The second skill you have to cultivate in order to stay focused is the stamina, the willpower to get out there and be psyched about going for that meeting, and getting that one sale before coming back home. The people who really are at the top of this industry really understand that they have to get out there and perform, no matter what it takes.
Having said all that, I believe this job is not for everybody, but everybody can do it.
They have to talk the talk in order to walk the walk. I don’t care what you say to yourself or what it takes, whether you shake yourself into it, do whatever it takes to get out there today.
I’m on my way to work and I’m pumped, I’m excited, I’ve come this far because I cultivated these qualities. Sure there are setbacks, there are will be conflicts, but the more people you talk to, the more people you pitch to you’ll create more opportunities and the more you’ll grow!
So get out there and get cracking!
