Hi there!

It’s time to talk about the next ingredient for success in sales. So far we talked about DESIRE, GOALSand PLANNING. The next ingredient is extremely important.

4. ingridient: BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

Confidence is essential for success!

If you don’t have the confidence that you can achieve your goals, then you won’t!
It’s all in the mind.

One of life’s cruel jokes is that we are immediately set up to fail. Our subconscious mind is constantly telling us we can’t do something or other. This is very far from truth! We can achieve anything we want to, we just need to believe in ourselves.

A lack of self confidence is simply a state of mind. We become comfortable in our lives, and tend to stay away from things that will take us out of our comfort zone.

But what if I told you that this small amount of mental discomfort is insignificant to the vast improvements it would make in your life.

By taking the first step and starting to overcome your fears by trying something you tend to avoid, you will become a more confident person. This will give you the enthusiasm to try new things and ideas, again increasing your confidence. Before you know it, you will be well on your way to achieving your goals and great success.

Raising Self Confidence!

This is never an easy task, as it requires us to train our brains to think differently. But like anything else in life, if we practice and show determination, it can be achieved.

Setting goals and working towards them is guaranteed to improve self confidence.

An important note to remember is not to fall into the common trap of losing confidence if you are not reaching your goals in the time frame you have set yourself.

Take a step back and evaluate if the way you are trying to achieve the goal is the best way. Approach it differently. It is very rare for there to be only one way to do things.

Keep telling yourself “I will succeed”. Self-affirmation can be a real confidence booster, but you have to believe in what you are saying for this to work.

Reward yourself on completion of small tasks! Share your success with others! Be proud of what you have accomplished. All these things will make you feel good about yourself, and will give you the confidence boost to try other things.

Keep Positive!

A positive mind is a healthy mind.
Negativity has no place in your success. It will only hold you back.
You must enter into each situation with a positive attitude, and with the mindset that you will succeed.
When things start to test your confidence, take a step back and re-evaluate the situation.

Remember, to be successful, you must BELIEVE in YOURSELF.

The fifth ingredient is coming on Tuesday! Stay tuned!
