1. Create Your Day

You are your own creator. Plan your day the way you want and make it happen. Get into the habit of predetermining your success; this is very important. We tend to run on autopilot, never giving a second thought to what we want to create. Write it down. The best tool is a white board in your office or bedroom.

 

There is great power in setting your daily intentions, especially in any area where sales are concerned. Start your day by taking 5 minutes to write down what you would like to experience throughout your day.There is so much energy in the written word. Consider answering the following questions to give you some ideas: Who do you want to attract? What kind of interactions do you want to have? How would you like your day to unfold?

 

Pick one or two goals for the day no more. This makes you list doable and your goals obtainable

 

2. Start With The Positive Engery Of Gratitude

I always start each day with a twofold writing process. The first i I write out what I want my day to be like (the very same exercise as above), Step two I fill out a page about what I am grateful for.

Gratitude softens your energy; it opens your channels of receiving. I write down all of the things that occurred the previous day which I am grateful for. You can also add more permanent things like your health, youth, financial abundance, and shared laughter with a good friend There are so many things we take for granted each day. Practicing gratitude is one of the most important rituals you can practice to invite more abundance into your life. It sets in motion positive forces in your mind. This will combate any negitive things you may encounter during your day. Many famous people have started their day this way.

 

 

3. Power Up

Make sure you feel good first. Your sales will be greatly influenced if you’re in a rush, hungry, in a negative mood, or feeling drained. The art of “sales” is all about energy, an exchange of energy between two people.

Make no mistake that people buy your energy not your product or service. So make sure you feel good before you start your day. Take the time to put your needs first — make them a priority.

Make sure you get plenty of rest,eat well, and take care of pressing matters first so you can really be present with your clients.

 

4. Dress Each Day for Success

Back in the 50's and 60's women did not dream of going out of the house unless they looked great. This might sound so cliché, but it is true! You’ve probably heard this a thousand times, I know, but I’ll say it again because it’s worth repeating. When you dress for success you not only send a message to the world and clients that you are important and are worthy of their respect, but more importantly you also send yourself that message. Take the time to look and feel good. You can even pick out your outfits the night before if you know you tend to feel rushed in the mornings — this also ties in to taking care of your needs.

When you dress well you feel well, and that’s what makes or breaks your day in the scheme of things. I guarantee that this is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.

 

 

 

 

5. Make a List and Keep It Simple

If you find yourself scrambling to get loose ends tied up, as most of us do, write a list of things that have to get done throughout the day. It’s a simple little three minutes that can save you more time than any other trick I know.

If you know you have to make sales calls, write that down as a top priority. Set a timer. Make your goals and start calling, knocking on doors, adding friends on Facebook, or whatever else you do to get in front of your prospects. It helps to start your day with the tasks that are the hardest and most frightening because we tend to make them bigger in our minds than they really are. Do not make the list too long and break big goals down into micro goals.

I love the feeling of satisfaction I get from crossing things off those lists. I organize my week on one sheet of paper. Business compartments on one side, personal life on the other.

 

6. Remember to Deliver Value first

It can be easy to get excited about the money in sales. Remember your job first and foremost is to deliver real value to your clients. If you focus on how you can really help your clients by showing them how your product or service will benefit them and focus your attention there. Your sales will sky-rocket. People can feel what your priorities are and if it’s not them, they won’t be opening their wallets!

 

7. Have fun!

Sometimes we can work too much, so taking the time to unwind, relax and have fun can be just what the doctor ordered. When you’re stressed and whacked out you aren’t productive. There is only so much you can do before you need to recharge your batteries. Make sure there is fun-time planned into your week too. On my weekly organizer sheet I have my personal page, and on there are tabs including friends, fun, family, health, stuff to do, etc. When you come back to selling after time off you are always ready to go!

 

8. Have The Right Mindset

Your mindset will decide your success, so cultivate the right ideas about yourself and your business. Your clients need and want your products and services because it will make their lives easier.

It’s your job to bridge the gap and get them to realize it too. Some will love it and others won’t. Don’t focus on the ones who don’t or you’ll never get going and never build enough momentum to gather steam.

So don’t focus on the people who say no. They will always be there, you just need to expand your focus beyond the negativity.

 

9. Have Backup Tools to Work With

The biggest secret to my sales success are the energy tools I utilize to help bring me back to my present full power. It’s easy to get into a funk while selling, especially because you are going to get a lot of rejection. How you navigate rejection and self-regulate your perceptions will determine your ultimate success. I use a 2 min pep talk to myself in front of a mirror. It works wonders to revitalize your self and your day.

 

10. Smile — a lot!

Smiling lets people know you’re safe to approach. Your smile even transfers over the phone, so if you’re doing sales calls, get a mirror and practice smiling while on the phone. It’s a proven fact that your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between imagined ideas and reality. If you can think about something sad and trigger tears, why not smile instead and trigger more feelings of joyful abundance?
