If you are in Sales you might have always heard by your manager or peers that we have to be motivated each day in order to achieve our targets or goals. A good manager will do his best to keep the team pumped up and selling happily, however the sales manager can’t be psyching you up every hour. You too can motivate yourself with some of the following techniques.

Motivation Techniques to Boost yourself in Sales:

  • Set yourself specific goals: You might have receive a mammoth quotas from your upper management, however are you really going to let someone else decide what you’re capable of? Think about your past performance and the amount of commission you will make by achieving your quota.
  • Have a vision for your life: You have to have vision big enough to motivate you. If the quota to fulfill is making $ 5000 a year, it is not going to motivate you. Set your goal maybe $ 70000 a year and a strategy to get there. Have a plan and execute it.
  • Celebrate your success each day: End every day congratulating yourself on whatever it is you did that was successful. Yes, some days might border on lousy, but there’s still something you can celebrate.
  • Work hard enough to get results: Once you start executing your plans and see some success you will motivated all the time. The harder you work, the more results you will get and the more results you get, the more you will be motivated to get more.

Being in Sales profession we deal with lot rejections, work pressure, quotas to achieve and also face lots of emotional breakdown. Its very important to keep ourselves motivated, having the right attitude towards work and most importantly being positive in every situation.
