Quality moments..better days
We always say, “Back in the days,” right? But it’s really never that way, saying it has a nice jingle to it, but it’s actually, “Back in the moments,” because as author Dan Milman says, “We don’t remember days, we remember the moments and it’s in those moments that determine the quality of our days.”
You have 2 of the toughest jobs ever-Sales & Life, which is why I call the podcast, The Sales Life, because we’re all selling our way through Life. But when it comes to selling as a profession, we litterally walk out of our door every single day to fail. Because of the rejection, we’ve got to remember the moments-the moments when you were able to be a part of your customer buying their first vehicle; the moments they received a pay raise and wanted to treat themselves; the moments that they received a windfall of cash…or the moments they’ve had to start over-rebuilding not only their credit, but their lives as well.
Moments that you shared with customers that you’ve known for decades-walking with them through various phases of their lives…
Moments when you the family embraced you as you came to pay your final respects…
See, the moments will push you through the days.
The days that you don’t know if you have the strength to go on.
The days when you struggle to get customer’s to say yes after hearing your landlord say no to letting you pay your rent a little late. The days where nothing seems to go your way- the day ending so bad that your car won’t even start so you can leave that night.
The days are tough…
So it’s important to remember the moments because it’s in those wonderful moments that determine the quality of your days. I like to say that the days are your experience and it’s through the experiences that cultivate your moments of wisdom. Moments determine the quality of your days.
I hope you have a good “moment” today.
