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,

superiority of their company, product, service, pricing and
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
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!
