Last weekend I was at a cocktail party where I met some professionals, which included doctors, attorneys, and CPAs. In our conversations, I was amazed at how many of them seemed offended by the labels of “entrepreneur” and “salesperson”.
It struck me how the labels we put on ourselves can determine how successful we become. Our deepest beliefs can cloud our judgment about our potential in business. I see clearly how these “professionals” who don’t want to be called “salespeople” or “entrepreneurs” are limited in their mindset of what’s possible. Their beliefs are costing them big time in profits because they’re missing out on big opportunities.
No matter what industry we’re in, we want to work on ways to incorporate new mindsets about selling ourselves and our business that will add balance and integrity to our work, increase sales, improve relationships with clients, and improve personal satisfaction and income.
Most of us forget that by supplying our services or products, we are not only supporting ourselves, but are adding value and meaning to the lives of the people we encounter.
Most people have been programmed to be afraid of the sales process and of salespeople. Can you imagine life without salespeople? Can you imagine how much time, energy, and expense it would take if everyone had to do all the research on the products and services they use all by themselves? How drastically different life would be if we didn’t have people to provide information and help us obtain the necessities of life! The entire structure of our society would be very different.
The old standard beliefs we hold about ourselves and about the world of sales must change. Today’s consumers are intelligent, alert, highly selective, and independent in their thinking. To work with today’s consumers it’s imperative that you strive for excellence, integrity, and high ethics. You must be someone that stands out from the competition.
Focus on sales as a means of creating relationships, not just making deals. When you add balance and integrity to your work you will increase your sales, improve your relationships with clients and customers, and improve your personal satisfaction. By adding the integrity dimension to your professional tool box, you can improve your ability to be of service to others as well as your enjoyment of the process of sales.
How do you feel about selling? If you feel good about it, you are on the right track! If you feel negative, you have some serious work ahead of you to change that belief. Everyone is in sales. No matter what your title or profession, anyone who has succeeded at anything is an effective salesperson.
Please make note of how you feel when you are dealing with someone–if it’s negative, be aware: It’s costing you big bucks and it’s time to do something about it.
