Are you the best at what you do?

Everyone wants success, but very few achieve the success they dream about.

This personal challenge e-book describes the personal evolution necessary to become a super-star.

If you’re not making sales, is it because of outside circumstances, or is it because of you?

If you find yourself in a position where you’re making barely any sales, yet it seems as if everyone else is, you have to ask yourself a few questions. You may wonder things like, “Maybe it’s the market?”, “Maybe it’s the price”, “Or, even maybe it’s the product?” 

Well, we’re here to tell you the truth. And the truth, you probably don’t want to hear, but need to.

The reality is – you’re not making sales because of you. Not the outside circumstances, not the external factors, just you. 

And the best thing you can do if you find yourself in this situation is 2 things. 

1 – Stop worrying about everything and everybody else. Worry about you. Take responsibility for yourself. 

2 – Go back to one of the best sales memories you have. Capture that moment. How did you feel? Relive it, tap into that belief, and then go back out there. 

Not only is everyone else making sales, so WILL YOU. And you’re going to go make even more sales than the competition! Believe that.

If you have a losing mentality, you’re going to lose.

While your ability to make sales matters, your mindset is just as important. If your mindset is in the gutter and you’re beating yourself up for not making sales, of course you’re not going to see any progress being made. 

If you’re drowning in a negative headspace, all you’re going to do is attract more negative. 

Instead, pull yourself out of this mindset and start telling yourself you’re going to win. Believe it. Put yourself in a winning position mentally and then physically it’ll happen. Mindset is key! 

Competition in Sales: What to Do If Everyone Else Is Making Sales and You're Not: The Bottomline

We want to wrap this up with a challenge, we challenge you that no matter whether your sales are up or down – remember your job is to remain consistent. Remain consistently on the upward slope.

Take responsibility for who you are, deepen your belief in that, and execute. Once you do that, you’re going to win.
