Are You A Chicken? - Articles Surfing
There are many traits/habits required to be a successful sales person. Determination. Creativity. Negotiation. Superior customer service. Risk taking. Integrity.
You know the one trait that isn't required?
Being a chicken!
This is one of my 7 year old niece's favorite phrases - she likes to challenge people by saying "Don't be a chicken!"
I have no idea where this phrase comes from- do you? It always makes me laugh though!
One thing I do know - no one likes to feel chicken, look like a chicken or be called a chicken.
So what in my twisted Diva mind constitutes being a chicken?
Hey look - we have all been chickens at one time or another. But EESH - it just doesn't feel good.
We are headed into one of the biggest sales periods for most businesses. These businesses will make over 50% of their annual revenue in the next few months.
How are you positioned to take advantage of all the opportunity?
Have you created a pilot project? Raised your rates? Treated your clients with amazing customer service? Tried something new? Taken a chance?
Remember this line from your Diva:
Chickens Don't Take Chances.
But Divas Do!
So ask yourself:
A great book that I read in 1994 and still love today is " Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway" by Susan Jeffers. Hit the library - go to a second-hand bookstore or your local bookstore and get it TODAY.
It is time for you to SHED the chicken skin and move in the directions of your dreams!
