Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. Today’s tip comes from Mike Anderson from Terryberry, and if you listened to yesterday’s tip from Jack Wilson you’ll understand a bit more about what prompted this tip from Mike. It’s really good stuff. Give a listen:
Mike Anderson: Hi, Sales Success Community. This is Mike Anderson over at Terryberry, and my tip today is all about gratitude, specifically doing a gratitude journal. Okay? I know what you’re thinking that sounds probably pretty corny, or maybe a little hokey. In fact, that’s actually what I muttered under my breath when my wife brought this idea to me about two weeks ago.
But here’s the thing, if you’re like me and you’re struggling with this new normal of working from home or being stuck in your house, it can weigh on you mentally.
So here’s my call to action for all you.
Start a gratitude journal. Take five minutes each morning, write down a few things you’re grateful for and they don’t have to be monumental.
For example, mine today where I was grateful for the beautiful weather to take my dog for a walk this morning. My favorite coffee creamer was finally back in stock at the grocery store and I love it. And I finally was able to put that in my coffee this morning. Three for me was just my family’s health. And there’s a thing that happens when you show gratitude. It grounds you, it allows you to take a moment and focus on what’s going right in your life when the world seems to be in chaos. And really it just puts you in a better place mentally.
So that’s my challenge to all you. Gratitude journal five minutes morning, write down a few things. Start with three and I bet you’ll see some improvements in your mental wellbeing anyway Sale Success Community, be safe, be healthy and happy selling.
Scott Ingram: I’m grateful for Mike and this tip.
