Be Persistent And Sell More
All things are difficult before they are easy.”
Einstein got low scores in math, Churchill got poor grades in English, and both became two of the greatest men in history.
When I say don’t give up, I’m not talking about just quitting – I’m talking about mentally throwing in the towel, because you missed a sale or because you asked for the order and they said “no.”
Persistence eliminates resistance, whether you’re trying to close the sale or trying to carve out a successful career.
Over 80% of the sales are made after the 5th time you ask for the order, get an objection and close again. That means if you quit after the 4th, you’ve quit just when you were closest to success.
Almost every successful person I’ve ever read about said their success came just one step past where they were ready to give up and throw in the towel.
The people in sales who make it to the top are the ones who learn to control their disappointments and keep on going until they reach their goal.
As long as you’re still working hard to reach a goal, there’s a realistic chance you’ll eventually hit it.
When you stop trying – that’s when you end your chance of success. Just keep learning, and be persistent, and you’ll reach every goal that’s important to you.
