Negativity isn’t something thrust upon you. It isn’t environmental. It is a choice. It is choice to focus on the worst possibility, the cloud rather than the silver lining.
Sales is hard enough as a profession, but harder still if wrap negative views around you and what you do. When a team member lets you down – challenge your default position to condemn them, instead realise they are already possibly doing it themselves and expecting you to follow suit. Instead – choose to support them. When the client sale falls through – choose not to become despondant, but instead choose to focus your energies on the next client.
We all have a choice over all but a handful of things in life – the biggest two choices we can exercise are choosing to use our time positively and wisely and choosing to do so with a positive mindset.
Exercise that choice.
