2. Believe That Winners Never Quit And Quitters Never Win. This is the oldest success quote in the world of competitive sports and business. It's still around because it's true. How many times in your day do you slack off, just a little bit? Would you succeed more if you competed fully for the entire day? Every time you get discouraged and lose focus, that is a form of giving up, of not competing fully. Give every day all you've got. Be a determined competitor. These famous folks know the value of hanging in there.
3. Learn To Love The Craziness Of Competition. One of the ATP Pro Tennis Tour players I coached played Andre Agassi on center court at Wimbledon one year. It was a crazy environment with the English cheering wildly for the popular legend Agassi. My player had to remember not to fight the crazy tumult, but instead accept the competitive craziness to play his best. Do you sell your best under difficult circumstances? Let the competitive, uncertain selling environment motivate you to focus better, think more clearly and be even more determined to win. These successful people understand the nexus of uncertainty and competitive attitude.
Competition is the very lifeblood of a sales professional's
existence. Study it. Embrace it. Love it. Use it as success fuel.
Use it to take you to the top of your mental game. Develop an unstoppable
competitive mind-set, and you'll sell yourself to success.
