Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. Today Meshell Baker, the Sales Confidence Igniter, is back with the next installment of her multi-part series. Here she is:
Meshell Baker: Welcome to the ABC’s of Sales. Today’s letter is Y. Y is for YES, and today’s tip is about saying yes to yourself, which basically means you are expanding instead of shrinking. You are taking risks that promote self-growth and the growth mindset instead of making excuses or blaming others for why you’re not achieving your sales goals. It means you are continuously challenging yourself to redefine what your comfort zone looks like and expanding it and inviting in more opportunities.
So let’s go through a list of five ways to continue saying yes to yourself.
Number five, create a big vision. You see, when you create a big vision, some people may think it’s frivolous or a fantastical waste of time. I am here to tell you that without a big, hairy audacious vision for your life, you are not empowering yourself to say yes to you. A big vision is the compass that guides you to what you want and what’s meaningful and matters most to your life. Without it, everyone else’s priority will become your own.
Number four, be your own number one fan. An interesting fact of life. Everywhere you go, there you are. You cannot get rid of yourself. So making yourself your own number one fan, your best friend, your ride or die is very critical in sales success because the voices in your head will be critical instead of cheerleading you. So positive affirmations is a fantastic way to manifest confidence. What you repeatedly tell yourself will become your reality. Starting each day, each morning in the mirror and repeating to yourself that you are incredible, amazing, and all the wonderful things will boost your confidence. And I’ll give you a few to start with.
I am worthy of an abundant and wealthy life. I am beautiful and admired by others. I am smart and capable of handling anything. I am loved and welcomed everywhere I go. Just a few.
Number three, invest in yourself. As I mentioned before, everywhere you go, there you are. Investing in yourself boosts your confidence and your mental acuity in your own abilities and has a direct positive impact on your self-esteem. Investing in yourself, for example, by maintaining your health, it lowering your stress, it reignites your passion, and it will help prevent burnout. These are very critical factors in determining your sustained long-range sales success. Being a high performer for long periods of time will become stressful if you do not invest in yourself.
Number two, learn to ask for help and accept the help. It may be hard to hear for some of you high performers, but contrary to your popular belief, you are not the best at everything and you do not know everything. Taking time to get the assistance so that that big, hairy, audacious vision that you have for yourself, you can actually hit that target. And the way you do that is by seeking out others who are good at what they do. You may be good at, I don’t know, sales, but someone else can be good at accounting, or someone else can be good at marketing, or maybe you need assistance around the house, and maybe you need someone to help you clean the house and do the laundry and run some grocery errands. Asking for help is a powerful tool in growing and expanding your sales success. You do not need to do it all.
Number one, do more of what you are not great at. Yep, you heard me. Do more of what you’re not great at because this means you are facing fears, doubts, and the second-guessing that have been holding you back from doing things that you’ve been thinking about, you’ve been wishing you could do. You’ve been wondering, Would that be fun? Would I enjoy myself? Would I be good at that? And when you do these things, you’re immediately building confidence and learning skills about things you’ve been secretly holding to yourself. And it’s amazing what will happen when you start facing those fears.
By saying yes to yourself, you are cultivating a life of happiness, contentment, compassion, fulfillment, and it will elevate the quality of your sales to new levels. Yes, Y-E-S means You Expect Success. Have a great day selling.
