How can I stay positive while doing unpleasant sales tasks?

Even though I’m not in love with the idea of selling for a living, I still try to do my job well.

This is because there’s a huge difference between going through the motions in sales and performing really well.

And I’m not just talking about money.

Here’s what I mean…

If I have to call on 50 prospects a day, I make sure I’m the best I can be at it.

If I have dive into ugly customer service issues, I make sure I’m the best I can be at it.

If I have to record sales activities into the CRM, I make sure I’m the best I can be at it.

Not because I love doing these things, or think I’m the best at them. Far from it!

It’s because…

When I know I’m doing the tough stuff well… I get into a rhythm that’s very therapeutic…

And this makes me far happier doing it.

Best of all…

I do this, while hatching a plan to move on to something else more fulfilling.

Doing the tough stuff in sales means staying positive
