Becoming A Selling Machine
Selling Machines "The Superstars" aren't born, they are made.
be told, they are self-made. They are the real thing.
You can become the quintessential salesperson if you stay
and work hard.
Here are 10 steps to follow if you want to become a selling
1. "Yes I can!" Begin everyday thinking and saying aloud
"Yes I can!" The choice is pretty obvious here. You're

do you prefer? Put a crisp $100 bill in your wallet. Not
have crisp $100 bills in their wallets.
The $100 bill won't make you rich but it will make you feel
just knowing it's there. It's also a great way to rid your
of any negative thinking about money.
4. Establish daily written and prioritized goals. Begin each day
with purpose and passion in the pursuit of your daily goals.
Push aside all interruptions and distractions until your written
goals are achieved. Purpose and passion elude most people.
If you doubt me, make note of all the people you see in a
day that strike you as having purpose and passion.

before you spot one. With purpose and
passion you'll standout from
the competitive crowd - and

your favorite quotations.

shake things up in your life - personally and professionally.
Of course this is easy to say and hard to do.
Just think "Yes I can." Yes I Can become a selling machine.
8. Become a student of selling. Read good books. I just
finished reading "The Dip" by Seth Godin. It's an excellent
book. It's short and sweet - only 80 pages. Read articles.
Turn your car into a classroom and listen to CDs everyday.

Establish a written goal to invest $1000 every year for your

at the end of
every selling day. "How can I do it better?"
10. Have an attitude of gratitude. Be thankful for everything
have. Say thank you to everyone who buys from you.
Say thank you
to everyone who helps you make the sale. And
it wouldn't hurt to
say thank you to your Creator.

right time to show your appreciation for what you have.
