Motivation

Today, I received an e-mail from my boss regarding my department's sales rankings. Gladly (sigh!) I found myself at the bottom of the list. Yipee. Yey. What the Heck!? Wake me up someone, please! This simply isn't me! I'm used to being a High-Flyer! Not an earthworm...

This really is frustrating. But come to think of it, I'm not at all surprised. Because I know I'm slacking!

Currently, I'm in a department where selling means getting dragged by a carabao (water buffalo) through mud. Then again, when has selling ever been so easy?

We all are salesmen (and women). It doesn't matter if the goods we sell are services, products, credentials or skills, we are all sales people. Lawyers sell their knack at reasoning; politicians sell their (ahem) speeches; prostitutes sell their (ahem-ahem) "wares"; Apple sells their I-pods. We have both tangible and intangible goods that are marketed each and every day. Some are successful in selling their, goods, others aren't. Why? What makes the difference?

Motivation you say? The right mind-set? The right Drive?

Whatever it is, successful sales people have it, the slackers don't. I always had it, I just misplaced it for the time-being. Or did someone take it without my permission? Give it back! I need to climb the ladder!

MY FRIEND!MY LOVER!THE MAIN MAN!
TOP BANNANA!THE LEGEND!THE MYTH!...
TO TOP IT ALL OFF THE BEST TEMP. EMPLOYEE I HAVE EVR HAD! IT COULD NEVER BE SAID THAT A BARAKO COULD NEVER BE GIVING...RIGHT DUDE!


COMMENTS: WELL AS I HAVE SAID IT'S MIND OVER MATTER "IF YOU DON'T MIND...THEN IT DOESN'T MATTER!"

I know who you are, anonymous! Manuel, please do well with impersonating me for my credit card application. Those damned Credit Companies don't seem interested in gaining more business through me. Shoot.
