Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. May is Mental Health Awareness month and all this month we’ll be collaborating with our friends at Allego and their EnableMinutes show to talk about Mental Health in Sales. Here’s a tip to get us started featuring the always-animated Larry Long Jr:
Larry Long Jr: There’s a lot of stuff that’s going on that we’re facing, but I said it before and I’ll say it again, all we can do is control the controllables. We can control our emotions, our actions, our attitude, and how we treat other people. I’m an expert at striking out on the baseball diamond, on the softball diamond, as well as in sales and in business. But guess what? It’s opportunity. For those out there that want to get it, the opportunity is there. Now, all these external factors, they’re real. I can’t control the external factors. But when I look at that person in the mirror, first of all, what happened to my hair? But secondly, what are you going to do to seize the opportunity at the end? Because if you don’t seize it, someone else will. Why not you take advantage and thrive through all the chaos? You can do it, and it’s not simple. It’s hard work. But if you plan, if you surround yourself in great environments with great people, you leverage the community, and you come from a giving spirit, there’s no guarantees in life. But I’ll guarantee that if you do that, you’re going to have success in the long run.
