For sales professionals the stress and anxiety of an economic downturn quickly exact a toll. Your retirement account is rapidly shrinking. People around you are losing their jobs. Commission checks get smaller as customers cut back on services and orders.
Fewer prospects are buying. Compensation plans shrink.
Competition becomes brutal as everyone scrambles to sell to the few customers that are still buying. To make things worse, you may be walking on eggshells wondering when the next wave of job cuts could leave you out in the cold.
However, to sit around all day, wringing your hands over what-ifs, doom scrolling, and reacting to news and rumors on social media changes nothing. Worry is a miserable, debilitating waste of energy that holds you back.
You Have Two Choices In An Economic Crisis
Jim Rohn once said, “Wherever you are, be there.”
You can’t change past decisions. The future has yet to be written. All you have is now, the present. Right now.
RIGHT NOW is the only thing that is real. Right now, you have two basic choices.
You can wallow in worry or you can take action – and not just any actions – RIGHT NOW actions.
