Boost Your Sales Confidence

By Debbie Allen


Before you can sell anything successfully, you must

first sell your ideas, your wishes, your needs, your

ambitions, your skills, your experience, your products

and services—you must be absolutely SOLD on you. 


Your confidence will never fail you.  What can fail you

are those things in which you place your confidence.


In selling yourself successfully, absolute confidence in

yourself is a must! 


Confidence, in turn, breeds courage.  This being true,

you must make sure that your self-confidence goes to

work for you, because in selling ourselves, we are

putting our confidence in ourselves. 


Why is this so important to be successful in sales? 

Because if you don’t have confidence in yourself, how

can you expect prospective customers to have confidence

and faith in you either?


You are what you believe. You are what you think.


People who are successful have confidence in their

abilities and creativity.  Unsuccessful people, on the

other hand, expect to fail. They lack confidence in

themselves and their abilities.  Because they lack the

confidence in themselves, they see obstacles and are

unwilling to take risks. 


It’s normal for salespeople to occasionally question,

have doubt, and subsequently lose confidence regarding the

superiority of their company, product, service, pricing and

even themselves.


During those times of doubt, it’s important to think back to

all your successes, how you felt at that time and why you felt

that way.  Let those positive feelings recharge and revitalize

your beliefs that you and what you are selling are indeed the

very best. 


Everyone has confidence in something!


YOU and YOU alone have the responsibility to change old

programming and beliefs.


Recognize that whether you are worthy or not is all a made-up

belief.  Nothing has meaning except for the meaning you give

it.  You and you alone determine if you’re going to be worthy. 

It’s simply your perspective.  If you say you’re worthy, you

are. If you say you’re not worthy, you’re not.  Don't buy into

whether you are worthy or not.  Start taking the action and

develop more confidence and watch your sales soar!
