How to Become a Freakishly Great Salesperson

Syndicated from: Fearless Selling Blog ~ Increase Your Sales

Last week I stumbled across a YouTube video of an incredibly fast guitar player. This guy was freakishly fast. He played “Flight of the Bumblebee” and started at 170 bpm. He played it flawlessly which was impressive by itself but then he increased his speed to 210, 230, and finally 270 bpm. It was insane to watch! The introduction stated that he had spent upwards of 16 hours a day learning how to play the guitar when he was a child. Sixteen hours a day! No wonder the guy can play like a machine! Most people look at superstars in any industry (sales is no different) and wonder how they got that good. Sixteen hours a day is the simple answer. Invest enough time doing something and you will eventually get good, providing you seek to constantly improve. Most people don’t dedicate enough time to fully develop their selling skills. And what complicates this even further is that constant modifications and updates are required if you want to stay competitive in today’s business world. Are you prepared to dedicate 16 hours a day to improving your skill? This means using your standard eight-hour day to practise your selling skills and investing the other eight hours developing new habits, learning new techniques, reading, listening and watching new sales strategies. Sixteen hours a day is all it takes to become a freakishly great sales person. BTW: If you haven’t seen this video, I encourage you to take a few minutes right now. You won’t regret it. Could your team use some fine-tuning in their approach? Please feel free to contact me if I can help you. 905-633-7750 or kelley@fearless-selling.ca. Tweet This
