Performing Confidently and Getting Results
by On February 19, 2009

There seems to be a polarization of emotions these days about the results people are getting.  Some people are feeling awesome with how the year is going, and others are feeling…well, crappy. There isn’t much in between. 

Let’s learn from those who are feeling great. And if you’re on of those people, please keep reading because:

1. you can post great comments for everyone, and

2. if you don’t keep doing these things, you won’t be feeling great for very long!

People that are achieving the results they wanted to see, and are on track to hit their goals, are doing four things very well and doing them consistently.  They are:

1.  Psyched about their goals
2.  Scheduled and on task
3.  Strong with their technical game
4.  They are enjoying the results they are seeing and basking in their coolness.

Here’s a bit more on each of those four:

  1. Be Psyched about Your Goals-REALLY Psyched!
    Many of you have “goals” that are NOT that meaningful to you. If you aren’t really jazzed about what you’re shooting for, you will not be motivated on a day-to-day basis to do your business excellently. 
    Setting meaningful goals allows you to experience freedom in your life.  They give you a buzz in your belly, make you smile, and will motivate you to give it your all. I’d encourage each of you to ask yourself if your goal is really meaningful to you. If you say, “no” you can either modify your goals so it IS meaningful to you OR have a good conversation with yourself about why it’s so meaningful, which will get you more excited.
  2. Be Scheduled and On Task
    Yes, you have a schedule. But is it REALLY scheduled? If you stuck to your schedule and didn’t accomplish anything that wasn’t on it, would you feel awesome about your week? If the answer is no, then your schedule could use some work. If the answer is yes, then make sure you’re sticking to it!
  3. Be Strong with Your Technical Game
    Are you following protocol and your sales manual? Are you sounding like your strongest self as you perform? Are you recording and listening to your sales presentations? When you have your technical game down, and you know it, you’ll feel great, regardless of your results.
  4. Enjoy Your Results

    Bask in your coolness!  When you are doing 1-3, you’ll feel great. Revel in it. Talk about it. Keep up the good work (this is important-don’t just “bask” and stop 1-3), and the results will follow.

Share your stories or your questions..or bask in your coolness with us-this is a great place to do it!

Be Free!

    great post leah. personally, i have come to realize how important MY time is. It is the most valuable asset that i have. in order to make the most of my time, i have consistently set up my week the sunday before and look at it each morning. i put it in google, then sync it to outlook with alarms so i do not have to think about it at all.

    my new 3 word phrase is SPE, which means, set up, prepare and execute. this is in every aspect of my business. when it is all set up in advance and prepared, all i have to do is show up in the moment and execute.

    i also committed to a beginning of the month goal setting session with new posted words, numbers and phrases for my goals. all of the old stuff comes down. i had the same stuff up for so long, it did not motivate me anymore.

    also i have went back to “think and grow rich” with the activity of writing down on paper, the amount of money that i will have, what i will do to get it and the date it will be mine. this is taped on my work area and i am reading it all the time.

    i feel great!! hope this helps.

    Wow such great stuff..I needed it all thanks! I ordered “What you say when you talk to yourself”. I really did not fully under “self-talk”. I can’t wait to get the book and read it!! I know that may sound silly… but did not understand the words..and the potential! I thought I did but I really didn’t.

    Nice post Leah. Your point on being scheduled and on task is great. It is one of those things that certainly gives and takes away confidence. One other thing I’d encourage people to pay attention to is their self-talk. What goes in, does come out – in one form or another.

    Each day I am becoming more and more psyched about my goals and most importantly what they really mean to me. I love Alan’s post about revising and updating his reminders, words and phrases each month to keep it fresh and invigorating.
