Never Give Up

Being knocked down doesn't mean you're knocked out.

The quickest way to recover is to set clearly defined
goals for yourself.

Goals give you purpose. When you add passion to your purpose
you can expect great things to happen.

Not many people achieve success without experiencing failure.

The difference between Can and Can't is the letter "T" for trying.

Never give up - just keep trying . . .

Sales Secrets - The Best Advice

The best advice I ever got was from my father. Growing up as a
kid, whenever I asked him, "What do you think I should do,"
he always responded with, "What do you think you should do?"

I guess the best advice wasn't really advice, more like a gift.
The gift of learning how to make my own decisions.

The following were excerpted from the May 12th issue of Fortune

Michael Bloomberg - Mayor of NYC. "The advice
was, first, always ask for the order, and second, when the customer
says yes, stop talking."

Mark Hurd - CEO Hewlett Packard. "An NCR
executive was giving a presentation. He had great slides and an
even better delivery. The CEO, Chuck Exley, listened to the entire
presentation. At the conclusion, he nodded and said something brief
but profound: "Good story, but it's hard to look smart with
bad numbers."

Indra Nooyi - CEO Pepsico. "My father was
an absolutely wonderful human being. From him I learned to always
assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive
intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person
or problem becomes very different."

Sam Palmisano - CEO IBM. "Some of the best
advice I ever received was unspoken. Over the course of my IBM career
I've observed many CEO's, heads of state, and others in positions
of great authority. I've noticed that some of the most effective
leaders don't make themselves the center of attention."

Thomas Murphy - CEO Capital Cities/ABC. "Doing
the wrong thing is not worth the loss of one good night's sleep."

Nelson Peltz - CEO Train Fund Management. "Get
sales up, and keep expenses down." Now that's a sales secret
worth noting!

Charlene Begley - CEO GE Enterprise Solutions.
"Jeff Immelt, before he became CEO, gave me this advice: spend
a ton of time with your customers."

Here's one more sales secret for you. Most advice is easy to give
and hard to take. But as you can see from the above, good advice
has life-long staying power.

Here's a sales secret you can take to the bank if you're willing
to accept it. Read. Read a lot. You are what you read.

If you out-read your competitors you will surely out-smart them.

The Art Of Selling

The art of selling begins with the right attitude.

When you combine the right attitude with sharpened selling skills
you can achieve everything you want in sales.

There's a lesson from golf I'd like to share with you that may
impact your attitude - at least I hope it does.

If you know anything about golf, you know that the U.S. Open was
played this past weekend.

It came down to the last hole and the last putt. It was 12 feet
long. Sink the putt and you're going to the 18-hole playoff on Monday.

Tiger Woods sank the putt and would meet Rocco Mediate on Monday
18-hole playoff.

I was fortunate enough to play with Rocco 20 years ago in a Ronald
McDonald Charity event at the famed Oakmont Country Club.

Rocco has never won a major golf tournament. Tiger Woods has won

So I'm cheering for both guys to win for different reasons.

It got me thinking about inspiration. It doesn't matter if you're
a professional golfer or a professional sales representative. We
all need to be inspired.

In 1969 Tony Jacklin won the British Open.

In 1970 Tony Jacklin won the U.S. Open.

Several weeks ago he was asked where he got his inspiration from
throughout his golfing career.

He said he was inspired by a poem. This poem that inspired Tony
Jacklin was written by his caddie John Elnor.

Here's the poem:

If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don't.

If you would like to win but think you can't, it's almost certain
you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you've lost.

For out in the world, you'll find, success begins in the fellow's
will. It's all in a state of mind.

Think big and your deeds will grow.

Think small and you'll fall behind.

Think that you can and you will.

It's all in a state of mind.

Life's battles won't always go to the strong or fast at hand, but
sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.

I think it's a terrific poem with a dynamic message for entrepreneurs
and salespeople.

Why not read this poem everyday before you make a first sales call.

One of the cornerstones to the art of selling is your attitude.

If you think you can you will. If you think you can't you won't.

Why would you ever imagine and think you can't when all it takes
is imagining and thinking you can?
