This fascinating area of psychology reinforces the concept that our thinking style is our greatest ally towards achieving effective sales competencies. In other words, top sales performers think in a way that helps them to succeed. The greater the extent to which sales professionals align their thinking with the thinking of sales leaders, the more effective they will be. This has been empirically demonstrated from a number of different perspectives.
The best sales professionals are effective thinkers. They focus on what they want to achieve, they regularly review their sales objectives and they think in a constructive, supportive fashion, using their creative imagination in harmony with their intelligence, reason and free will. Conclusive research has indicated that top sales professionals complement their strong focus on Achieving Results with an equally strong focus on Building Partnerships with their clients.
Cognitive science suggests that what we are thinking about today determines our reality tomorrow.
That is, a person’s outer world is a reflection of their inner world. If a sales professional is interested in creating a new reality for themselves, whether that new reality is bringing in a new client or whether it is moving up to the next levelin sales effectiveness, this new frame of reference is first created in the person’s mind. It all starts with an idea, a concept and a desire for enhanced results.
It has often been said that a person sees more with their state of mind than with their eyes. For example, take an optimist and a pessimist to the same restaurant and afterwards they are likely to report quite different experiences even though the service, the meal, the company, and the location were exactly the same. The optimist’s positive frame of mind focused on what was enjoyable while the pessimist’s negative state of mind zeroed in on everything that was wrong.
Applying this perspective to sales results in a mindset that invites success for serious impact on your bottom line.
