If you love your job, Monday can be the best day of the week. If you’re struggling, burned out, or tired of facing rejection in your sales job, it can be one of the worst.
The good news is that you can change your attitude and increase your motivation in a matter of minutes just by listening to the words of others who have faced similar challenges.
This article features six of the most inspiring quotes about the sales process and productivity.
1. “Falling down is how we grow. Staying down is how we die.” — Brian Vaszily
We all fall down or get knocked down at one time or another. But, as Vaszily points out, each time you get back up you grow a little stronger, a little tougher, and a little more experienced. Try not to think of negative experiences as problems; think of them as growing opportunities.
2. “Good ideas are common – what’s uncommon are people who will work hard enough to bring them about.” — Ashleigh Brilliant
You’re probably sitting on some good ideas right now. Maybe you think you don’t have the talent, skill, or stamina to bring them into being; but you’ll never know unless you try. Today, pick one new idea that appeals to you and commit to taking just one small step towards making it reality.
Just like you, your clients lead busy, complicated lives. Out of sight often means out of mind, unless your initial sales presentation is strong and your follow-up is persistent. The more memorable you make yourself to clients, the easier the sales process will be.

4. “Formal education will make you a living; self education will make you a fortune.” — Jim Rohn
Many sales people worry because they feel they have never been well-trained for their jobs. The truth is that the best way to learn something is to do it – again, and again, and again. Whether or not you make your sale, each client contact will teach you something valuable about the sales process.
5. “It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.” — Richard DeVos
As you face the first day of your work week, think about these quotes. It is in your power to decide if you are going to have a good day or a bad day.
