The Fine Art of Being a Phenomenal Salesperson

What to be a phenomenal person? Here are the 5 P’s that will help you remain aligned with the values of phenomenal top performers.

What is a phenomenal person?

In sales, sports, and any other field, there are phenomenal people. What is a phenomenal person? If you are reading this, then you are a likely a phenomenal person.

You have taken the time to learn something that will improve your life, something that will motivate you to be better. Below are the five traits of top performers to remember throughout your day that will help you continue being a phenomenal person:


A phenomenal person is always moving forward. They will always be pushing to succeed in everything they do. They have strong drive, recognize complacency, and conquer it gracefully.


You can’t try hard sometimes and be a phenomenal person. You have to give it your all everyday, no matter how hard it is to do so. Some days your “all” is not as good as others, but when you can come home to relax after leaving everything on the table, you feel great.

Persistence is what separates the phenomenal people from all the rest. Be the best, never less.

Being a phenomenal person is hard. No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. We all fall down every once in awhile. What sets a phenomenal person apart from the rest of the world, is how fast they get back up & what they do with the situation once they are up again.


Life is better when seen through the eyes of a positive thinker. Be that positive thinker. Visualize what you want continually and it will be yours eventually.

Being positive wont just help you, it helps the people around you. Phenomenal people realize that positive thinking requires effort.

It’s like a tennis match between positive and negative thoughts. The ball is hit back and forth until eventually one side wins. Phenomenal people make sure the positive side always wins.

One technique to use is to counter every negative thought with three positive thoughts until eventually you begin to be a positive thinker.


A wise person once said, ”When you are not practicing remember that somewhere someone is practicing, and when you meet them they will win.”

In order to be phenomenal at anything you must first practice. Practice takes patience.

First, you must understand that practicing is not what really matters. It’s what you put into the practice that counts. Practice with an unrivaled drive. Phenomenal top performers put their heart and soul into practice.


Eventually can be a long time. However, good things come to those who wait for them.

Being patient can be very difficult during challenging times. When these times come, remember the things that matter most in life.

When you focus on what really matters, it reduces impatience with small issues. Understand and know that when you don’t get everything you want, when you want it, it’s not the end of the world. As Annie once said, “The sun will come out tomorrow.”
