3 Things You Can Do To Set Yourself Up For Sales Success In 2015

By Darren Pierce on Jan 1, 2015 6:00:00 AM

The New Year is officially underway, and you’re probably already starting to think about what you’re going to accomplish in 2015.

I’m right there with you, and I want to help propel you toward your goals, so here are 3 simple things you can start doing to set yourself up for sales success.

1) Expand Your Thinking With New Experiences

Make a point to avoid approaching each year like the last. Expand your thinking and let the creative juices start flowing.

Jack Canfield, co-founder of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, says you can expand your thoughts by committing to doing something new that you haven’t done before and then assessing how it affects your life. Switching just one thing up can make a big impact.

Here are a few of his suggestions:

  • Stop watching TV
  • Listen to only positive music
  • Verbally appreciate 10 people a day

2) Commit To Fitness

I’m not saying you have to lose 30 pounds, work out for 60+ minutes each day, or start a strict no-carb diet. What I am saying is that fitness can actually help sharpen your sales skills.

Regular exercise, even if it’s only for 25-30 minutes a day, has a ton of benefits! It gives you increased energy and focus. It can decrease your stress levels and even boost your immune system so you don’t have to take as many sick days.

It also gets you into the goal-setting mindset, which we all know is critical to sales success.

3) Look Back, Then Move Forward

Take a look back at 2014.

What did you do right? What were the big wins? Who did you like working with the most? Who did you like working with the least? Why? What battles did you lose? What mistakes did you make?

Then turn around, face 2015, start walking, and stay focused on moving forward.

Take a little time at the beginning of the New Year to learn from your successes and mistakes, but then shift your attention to your new initiatives.

Whether 2014 was good, bad, or ugly—it doesn’t matter. It’s a new year! Remind yourself of that!

Are you changing your approach to sales at all in 2015?
