Monday’s article, “How to be a Sales Rock Star in 2013” is probably going to be one of my most popular articles of 2012 even though it’s only going to have been published for one week at years end. If you haven’t read it, you may want to do so now to have it as a backdrop for this article. The United States has been ‘in business’ for a few hundred years and has weathered hurricanes, earthquakes, the Great Depression, wars, etc. Many have died, but some ended up better off than before the catastrophe occurred. Every time I turn on the news, I’m hearing that we are approaching a “Fiscal Cliff” and that people should worry. Respectfully, I don’t know how it will turn out and I don’t care, because I, for one, won’t die. I’ll use the opportunity to do what I do best and that’s definitely not ‘hunker down’ and prepare for bad times and interestingly, my sons, my clients, my closest associates aren’t hunkering down either. Each one of them is getting ready to have 2013 be they’re best year ever.
Switch gears to your business and Monday’s article. Are you gonna be a Sales Rock Star in 2013? If you answered each of the 5 questions, “Yes!” You go girl! (or boy!)
If you had any no’s, why haven’t you called me? Over the past few years, I’ve realized that there’s a lot of mediocrity in the world, but you don’t have to be mediocre unless you’re ‘hunkering down’ and waiting to die. Which of the five questions got a “no”? Would you like to fix it? Look around you, Are there people doing better than you that aren’t as good as you? Do you work harder than they do? Aren’t you sick of it? Are you looking at your fiscal cliff and wishing that you could turn it into the opportunity to soar?
I just finished a conversation with somebody that I worked with in 2011, but did not work with this year. Interestingly, 2011 was his best year ever, but 2012 wasn’t as good. However, I’m totally confident that 2013 will be his new best year ever and no, he did not sign up to be coached. He just needed his head twisted.
