Risk gets a bad rap. Most Human beings view risk in a negative way, that it’s something to be avoided. But, there are infinite ways when risk works for you. Take these action steps and watch how they’ll motivate you to reach your highest freight sales goals.
Desire Success? Risk What’s Required To Obtain It!
Most desire success, and those who move toward it must take risks. Do you risk leaving your corporate job to start your own company? Do you risk leaving your low-paying job for one that pays commission only? In either case, you’re trading the safety and stability of a 9-to-5 job, working for someone else, for virtually unlimited income!
How Willing Are YOU To Risk?
Everyone has their tolerance for risk. Most in the world will do everything required to avoid it. They must know what’s next, and what to expect, most of the time. The small few of the world view change and disruption as opportunities. They pursue the risk, and don’t fear the outcome. Where are you in this category of risk takers?
To Win, Someone Else Won’t Lose!
Most risk-averse individuals feel that to win, somebody else must lose. Not true! When you begin your own freight sales business, you’re not putting someone out of business. In fact, you’re adding jobs to the community when your business does well. When you increase your freight sales, you don’t decrease another freight agent’s business. You’re assisting the freight market by making the ‘pie’ larger. So, when everyone retains the same ‘slice,’ everybody wins.
No Risk, No Reward!
Thomas Jefferson said, “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” When you accomplish something great, say, doubling your freight sales or starting a freight sales business, you must step out of your comfort zone. Take that risk!
Your Best Teacher Is Failure!
Most successful freight sales agents talk about their failures more than their wins. Failures are the best educator and motivator. You learn the most from your failures. Remember the feelings when you fail. You don’t want to feel that way again. Go at it a different way next time. Do what it takes to succeed, because you’ll fail in the process getting there!
Uncertainty Is Good!
Betting the sure thing will never make you rich. To do great things, you must embrace uncertainty. When you’re in a situation with many outcomes, ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that can happen?” When you ask this question, you’ll find that the worst possible outcome may not be that bad, and the best possible outcome is extraordinary!
