That is a huge word in the sales language and in our sales world. If we are not in full commitment to our business, we will not perform and reach our goals.
How many excuses have you used this week for why you did not reach your goal, whatever that goal may have been?
How many times did other things get in the way of making your goal?
If we are in full committment to our job, and yes this is a job, then we need to be working it as a full time job and a full time commitment.
We are all guilty of being a bit lazy from time to time, but if we are, then we need to lay the blame of why are have not reached our sales goal or our personal goal right where it belongs. With ourselves. We cannot blame the kids, or the dog or our spouse. We cannot blame the company, the products, the late deliveries, the hostesses. It is our job and we need to be committed to giving 100%, 100% of the time.
This is where scheduling your time becomes critical. If you are a stay at home mom, then you have to block out times to be effective and work your job.
If you wonder why you are not making money or reaching your goals, look at your commitment level and decide if your job is worth recommiting to or not.
