So you’re pissed off…
The other day one of my salesmen pulled me aside and said, “I’m sorry for snapping at you yesterday. I was frustrated because it seemed as though everyone was selling something, except for me.”
“It’s a good thing that you’re frustrated….
… because it shows that you still care…
… & that you’re still in the game, ” I said.
You’re going to have those days where it seems like everyone’s successful, but you.
Those are the days that you weigh your self-worth…
& on those shitty days it weighs ounces.
You try to ease the pain by calling yourself a piece of shit and mentally ramble on & on as if you gambled your grandmother’s inheritance with one roll of the dice at a Vegas casino.
(Self 3rd party): “You blew it!”
(Me Self): “Maybe I’ve lost my touch….”
(Self 3rd party): “You used to be a salesman…but look at you now! If you sold it for free, you probably couldn’t convince a customer to buy.”
No magic dust, lucky pen or underwear can help you out…
Some days, it’s just your day in the barrel.
When you have those days, you have the suck out the penalty of failure.
You’re failing…but you are not a failure.
Failing is the current score…
Failure is the final one.
You just happen to be on an 0-11 streak right now.
So here’s your fix…
#1: Being pissed off is good because it shows that you still care.
The time to be worried is not when you’re pissed off, it’s when you’re not pissed off and just “Oh well” the day.
And if you still care…then you can do something about it.
#2: Shut the hell up and get back in the game. No rehashing what just happened…no over analyzing…just shut up, knuckle up, and check back in.
You’ll win again…the fact that you’re still bothered is proof of that.
Sometimes the only thing that needs to be changed is your perspective.
Stay in The Sales Life.
