Always consider business to be a game. It’s a sport that we are playing. Be mindful we’re not involved in life and death decisions, we’re not confronted with sickness and sadness as we conduct our daily selling tasks. Considering the misfortune some people experience in the world, there is no such thing as “having a bad day” when you’re working in sales.
Enjoy what you do and have fun in your work. You should still want to win, you should still want to beat all your competitors, but it’s a game that we play, the game of transferring profit from one company to another.
You should never give up or compromise, but it’s not life or death. It’s a choice to do what we do.
You will never depress or bore anyone into buying from you so yes, be dedicated, be serious about succeeding but always see it for what it is, It’s a game – be happy and enjoy it.
