Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. It’s Friday, so here’s your weekly dose of Jack Wilson:
Jack Wilson: What’s going on Daily Sales Tips Community? Jack Wilson back with another tip. Today I want to help you find ‘Anothah’. You know, you’ve heard of “A brother from another mother,” or maybe “A sister from another mister.” Don’t lie. You’ve heard it or used the term before, and it’s good because even though it’s the same thing, it sounds way less boring than accountability partner.
My tip for you today is to find one of those. So reach out to your, whatever you call it, and let them know that you’re on a journey of self-exploration or on self-improvement and that you’re looking for their support on that journey. That’s the first step.
Once you’ve identified this person, step two is don’t forget that you’re in this together. It’s a mutual relationship of support. So do something to show your other, how much you appreciate their help. Maybe work to understand the personal goals that they’re working toward. Maybe it’s even send them a small token of your appreciation, like a gift card or a bottle of wine.
Once you’ve decided you’re going to go on this journey together, don’t just let it be by happenstance. Make sure you schedule regular times to connect or establish what’s the best method, rather to communicate about the progress on whatever it is that you’re holding each other accountable to.
Now, this is a sales podcast, so this should likely be something like prospecting activities or deep research about prospective clients or insert any other thing that you’re trying to do or accomplish here. But don’t forget, it doesn’t just have to be that. It could be something personal as well because the way we show up in our roles is dictated a lot by how we feel in our personal lives.
My best example of this and what prompted this tip is my good friend DeJuan Brown from this very community. DeJuan reached out to me and said, Hey, man, do you want to do this 30-day challenge where we do 100 push-ups and 100 situps a day? All we have to do is text each other a number and a letter whenever we’ve done one of those activities. So if I do 10 push-ups, it’s 10 P. 10 sit-ups, 10 S. you get the gist. Well, today is day one, and I’m exhausted, but I’m also invigorated, and I’ve never been more motivated before to do one small thing throughout the day to focus on my personal health. And I’ve got to tell you, it’s got me showing up with a lot more energy and enthusiasm for the day. So get out there, find your brother from another mother, and create accountability together.
