“Everyone is in sales. Maybe you don’t hold the title of salesperson, but if you deal with people, you, my friend, are in sales.” – Zig Ziglar
Have you ever tried to convince your kids to eat healthy?
Have you ever asked someone out on a date?
Ever try to convince your spouse it’s time to buy a new car?
If you have, I’ll let you in on a little SECRET:
YOU ARE IN SALES.
Anyone trying to MAKE A CHANGE happen is in sales.
- It’s the PHYSICIAN convincing their patient to start a new therapy.
- It’s the TEACHER getting their students to READ more.
- It’s the BACKUP QB asking his head coach to run a trick play in the SUPER BOWL.
Seth Godin wrote, “If you’re not trying to make things better, why are you here? So, you are SELLING something.”
The sooner you realize this reality, the easier your reality becomes.
Say it loud….
“I AM IN SALES.”
Now go out there and change something for the better.
