Changes are coming!

Change is constant in our lives.  It is a process and a transformation. It’s a way of life for a Sales Person. Change continually alters and reshapes our lives. The effects of change can be subtle, like climbing a ladder or dynamic, like riding a wild, river rapids. The way we process and react to change depends on how we perceive it and move with it.

One thing is for sure, we can learn vast wisdom from tranformation. Life asks us to ride the waves of change and is constantly altering and reshaping our experience. Life asks us to constrict and expand and we never know what is coming.

That is why you must be open to change and know that all things are possible and all things are meant to be. When change rolls your way, say to yourself, “There is a reason for this change, a reason for my greater good, not sure what that reason is, but I want to find out, bring it on!”

When you seek the alternative route and decide to fight change, many things happen. For one, you stop growing and transforming, you become stagnant and bitter. You become what some call, “burned out”. You also may look at it this way, once you stop changing or transforming, you are dead…or you might as well be.

So now is the time to embrace all change coming your way! It’s just a matter of changing your perception of change to a positive one and being eager to change. That is when others will notice your vitality and your joy. Others will want to be near you because you are not afraid and have this “positive, upbeat energy”.

I am good friends with many of the Sales Representatives I teach.  Some of them I know from many, many years ago. I am very saddened to hear of a friend who has been selling for a very long time and now is burned out. The only thing I hear is how negative he is these days. It is very sad because this person was a great sales person at one time, always upbeat and fun. But if others who know you don’t really want to be around your negative energy, how are you coming off to your prospects? Think about it.  I know it’s tough to do something for a long time and stay fresh but you either do it or you should find something else that makes you happy again.  Before your employer decides to do it for you.

Sometimes change means you need to make the change. Sometimes you either need to seek the new attitude that will make you happy again or seek a new career or employer where you can thrive.

Just remember Change is always coming your way, and it’s a very good thing!

    Excellent blog about change, Shirleen
    Change is good and we as individuals must be ready to change in order to be successful in life. A person must have a positive attitude when it comes to change and the discipline to make the necessary changes when they are necessary, wouldn’t you agree?
    In general I believe that “life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it.” If a person is willing to change then they will be able to help someone else change which in turn will make our world a better place to live in.
    Keep up the good work.
    Thank you.
    It’s a pleasure to know you.
