I directly apologize to any customer when my company or I screw up. I consistently deliver on the promises and commitments I make to my customers. I thank customers for their business often.

When a customer problem occurs I rapidly own it, apologize for it, and then immediately fix it. I find creative ways to provide my customers a little something extra when they do business with me, particularly my best customers. I consistently execute the (0 comments)
I have a support group that helps me bounce back from adversity when the selling challenges seem too great. I have desensitized myself to sales rejection by simply doing anything that I have feared until I prevail. I'll never let fear immobilize me from reaching sales success. I have a proven plan for turning things around, which I follow when I find myself in the inevitable sales slump. I have a proven methodology for avoiding objections that might occur early in the sales process. I have a proven methodology for overcoming value objections that occur late in the sales process.

I have a collection of reference success stories segregated by buyer type and for each primary benefit of each product. I involve as many of my prospect's physical senses as possible when I present the solutions my product provides. I accept that the world of selling is not easy. I'm determined to become a sales superstar. I'm very optimistic about my chances for sales success. I believe and behave as if the problems I encounter in selling are not permanent, pervasive, or personal. When I encounter rejection, lost sales, or missed quotas, I'm able to effectively dispute any pessimism that (1 comments)
I'm able to get potential ideal buyer prospects to call me first as a result of my personal marketing efforts and credible reputation. I know the difference between features, advantages, and true benefits. I'm able to get myself in a passionate selling state whenever I engage prospects on the telephone or face-to-face. I follow (or have internalized) a telephone script whenever I prospect or handle incoming inquires by telephone. I have a voice mail script that I follow whenever I leave messages for prospects. I follow written notes highlighting my strategy whenever I engage a prospect. I track all my (0 comments)
I follow a proven questioning methodology that leads prospects effectively through the sales process. I never prescribe my product or service until I've thoroughly diagnosed the buyer's situation and understand it completely. In selling situations, I listen far more often than I talk (70:30 ratio). I am able to demonstrate verbally and nonverbally that I really care about people. I effectively find common ground with prospects by uncovering any shared activities, experiences, or mutual associations. I'm effective at matching a prospect's body language and voice patterns. I have fun with people and use humor effectively to reduce the tension inherent (0 comments)
I read at least one book on sales strategy per quarter. I listen to audio learning programs when I'm driving during work hours. In the past year, I've identified and worked on at least one area to improve my selling effectiveness. I attended at least one sales or personal development seminar within the past year. I have identified the characteristics of my ideal buyers and have developed an ideal buyer profile checklist to judge all my potential prospects against. I have a target account list of ideal buyers that I am currently pursuing. In complex selling environments (where multiple buyers (0 comments)
I do aerobic exercise four or five times per week and some form of resistance and flexibility training every week. I drink lots of water and follow a nutritionally sound eating routine (e.g., daily breakfast, reduced fat intake, consistent meals, nutritional supplements, etc.). I am aware of my physiology (e.g., posture, breathing, gesturing, etc.) when I'm successfully selling. I have the ability to raise my physical energy and enthusiasm when necessary for selling situations. I spend time each day improving my attitude. I have developed a presales call ritual that specifically gets me ready to sell at my best. I (0 comments)
self awareness Series For salespeoplePart1of 9: 21 Reflection points - 01/13/09 05:09 PM
I have written down or thought about my strengths and weaknesses as a salesperson within the past two years I have made a commitment to be in the top 10% of salespeople for my company or industry. I invest at least one hour per week toward learning more about my products, business, or industry (e.g., studying, reading, or attending meetings). I invest time regularly toward becoming more effective in my selling skills. I sell with honesty and respect. I put serving my buyers ahead of profit or commissions. I do what I say I'll do, when I say I'll do it-for (0 comments)
