“The world doesn’t care what you think, it just reflects it back as the truth.” – Rick Solomon
I have had many conversations with individuals in a sales role who don’t quite believe that they can influence the outcome of a sales meeting just with positive thinking. These same individuals miss out on some sales as a result!
The following scenarios prove without a doubt how positive thinking or negative thinking creates positive or negative events.
Let’s say Gord has an important sales call with a potential client. Everything about the sales call is exactly the same but there are two distinct variations on what happens just prior to the sales meeting:
In the first scenario, five minutes before Gord arrives at the sales meeting a black cat crosses his path. Gord is somewhat superstitious and now is concerned about his bad luck. It’s very unfortunate that this bad luck occurs at the time of the important sales call. The probability of a successful sale has just decreased due to the black cat crossing the path.
In the second scenario, five minutes before Gord arrives at the sales meeting he finds a four leaf clover! Gord is somewhat superstitious and is excited to have this lucky bonus. He is most excited at the timing of it because he is sure this will definitely increase the probability of his success at the sales meeting!
Your thoughts count – positive or negative.
To start using this power, just imagine yourself finding a four leaf clover just before your sales meetings. If this doesn’t work for you, just send me a self-addressed stamped envelope and I will send you a real four leaf clover to use. I have found hundreds of them and keep 20 or 30 in inventory at all times.
When you seek out the positive, good things happen. Really.
