People are anxious and stressed out about our economy, and that trickles down to small business, small business owners, and salespeople.
The television news reiterates this point over and over. Tip: turn off the TV!
I just read a very helpful article from Asset-Based Thinking writer Kathy Cramer – all about helping real estate professionals get through these times. The concepts talked about will help any business owner or sales person. Check this article out.
A couple of excerpts:
I recommend that [people] remind themselves three times a day of progress they’ve
made that day. It doesn’t have to be a financial reward. Interest from a buyer or seller
represents progress – a step toward success. They should also ask themselves how
they achieved that success.
Whenever you face a setback, whether personal or financial, go into a reflective
mode and take stock of the situation. See what this time of disappointment has
to offer to help you reset your priorities.
These ideas may be simple – not easy, and yet when you get them down, they can change how you see yourself and the world.
