What are the ABCs of sales?

In the words of Lao Tzu, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”  

Great achievement first requires great action. Recognize you can be and do everything your heart desires. But it only happens when you act.  

No one ever discovered their amazing life, created the incredible, or achieved the unbelievable without first facing their fears.  

Do you know what produces the most electromagnetic energy in the human body? 

Most people respond “the brain.” 

But it’s not! It’s actually…

your Heart. 

But what does your heart have to do with sales?  Well, everything!

The marketplace is flooded with products and services. There is very little that differentiates one do-hickey from the next. And in the event that you’re lucky enough to sell an innovative never seen before product… It won’t be long before a copy competitor enters the market.

No kidding, we are in a technological boom. 

Your unease, doubt, and unwillingness to act has the potential to excite people to achieve extraordinary things, which makes sales an honorable and noble calling.
