Look In the Mirror – Slam’s Sales Tips 1200-1300

     Look in the mirror to sell better. This is so obvious, you say. Don’t be so quick.


     Of course the obvious parts of what I mean here deserve re-emphasis themselves. Make sure your dress is appropriate, your hygiene complete and your smile in-place. These are the obvious mirror checks that a sales pro needs to do every day.

     But then there are the not so obvious aspects of why a mirror check can lead to better selling. … What are the intangibles that you see in the mirror? What are the issues floating in those eyes that you see every time you look at yourself? Are you happy with the person you have become? Are you fully alive inside?

      How can you produce effectively in a professional selling environment if there are haunting specters that you see when you look in the mirror? Yes, it may be true that no one else can see them. But you can. And performance is an inside out issue. It is hard to perform at maximum thresh-holds of potential; if we feel bad inside.

     This is the mirror check that I am talking about. Work on the real issues of coming to honest terms with God, yourself and those close to you. Work daily on your character defects and on becoming a better person. You will most certainly discover that when you feel best about yourself; you can expect more from yourself.

     If you can do your daily mirror check and like not only the exterior appearance that all can see but the images inside your eyes that only you can see; then a glowing performance is not far away. When you feel better about yourself; you can rightly expect better from yourself. — Look in the mirror and with God’s help daily improve the image that you see.

How you see yourself

     Sales is an extension of yourself. Never forget that your customer most often buys you, before your product. With this mindset in place; to work on a better you, attack your work with confidence and zeal today and use these tips to sell a bunch!!!!
