Speak to the end
Beginning is an assumption.
Without a destination in mind
The journey is hard to fathom.
With map and compass
A path can be plotted,
But only if you know where you’re going.
Far too often we are thrilled to start projects with only a vague sense of how it is to be completed. Without an end goal in mind, intermediate steps cannot be formulated and soon the project becomes one in a number of “good business ideas” placed on the rubbish heap. Visualize the end, articulate it, share it with others and enroll them on your quest. The end is a very powerful tool for the Master Seller. Use it wisely.
There are many tasks in sales and some you naturally attract you; organizing your desk, preparing your script, going on cold calls, tidying your contact data or schedule . These things are all well and good UNLESS you’re doing them to avoid real work. Ask yourself “What do you dread doing?” Ask yourself , what are the things you find hard to do and then consider that maybe, just maybe that’s where you’re failure lives?
Take a moment and look inward. Do you have any suppressed self-destructive traits or childhood hang-ups that are roadblocks to promoting your dream? Are you putting yourself out of business? Today, focus on one thing you avoid. Put it on the top of your to do list. Do it right now!
See the world as it is
Focus on the hard
until the hard becomes easy.
Some buyers can be served, some not
When hunting, most leads end in No
While others wither at rejection
The Master Seller smiles with each No
The more No’s the more Yes’s
Seek the No
to find the Yes
No progress occurs without goals
Guideposts on the path of discovery.
Each sale a series of steps
A trek to the final purchase.
As weather and obstacles appear
The path is re-charted
Like stars to ancient navigators,
The destination has immense value
Yet it pales when compared to goals.
It’s the journey that matters
The rest fleeting.
