Staying motivated is critical to success, no matter what your goals. We ALL face major challenges while moving closer to our freight sales dreams. It can be challenging, as well, staying motivated when obstacles arise. When you’re struggling to find motivation while making freight sales calls, remember these motivators and stick to them like glue!
Use The Towel to Wipe the Sweat Off Your Face!
The saying, ‘throw in the towel’ comes from boxing. When a fighter was outmatched and wanted to end the fight, he would throw his towel into the ring and the referee would call the fight. The reason the fighter had the towel in the first place was to wipe the sweat off his face and out of his eyes. When it seems like you’re facing defeat, you can either throw in the towel or use it to wipe off your sweat and get back in the ring. Stay in there and finish all the rounds!
Easy Is Never A Part of Success!
If success was easy, everyone would be successful. Success requires much hard work, late nights and dedication. If it seems like the road ahead is difficult, it just means that it eventually leads to success.
Expanding Is Always Your Main Goal!
It’s typically not apparent which direction you must go. Or, it may seem that the direction you’re going is blocked. When that happens, always think of expanding. When you expand, you widen your horizons in all directions. This opens new options that you may not have seen before. Your goal must always be to expand!
Your Goals Are Too Small If Your Focus Is On Your Challenges!
It appears that we spend much of our time attempting to overcome challenges. This is an easy trap to fall into because our minds tell us that we must solve the challenges in front of us before moving forward. But if you find yourself stuck because you’re focusing on challenges, it’s time to expand your goals. Set larger goals that take you beyond your challenges. Challenges always look smaller in the rear view mirror.
New Challenges Are Good!
Are you viewing your challenges as something negative? After all, challenges are things that must be dealt with so they go away. Done correctly, challenges will make you think about situations in a different way so you get closer to achieving your goals. Every time you come up against a new challenge, you’re that much closer to reaching your goal.
Take Action On Your Fears, Don’t Retreat From Them!
Fear is a great motivator when you don’t retreat from it. Stare down your fear, own it, and then dive into it. By showing fear who’s the boss, you overcome it and come out successful on the other side. Some of the greatest achievers of our time say that if you’re not afraid when you’re reaching for an important goal, you’re not doing it right. So, face your fears head on!
