I believerepparttar biggest obstacle to successful selling, occurs in your own mind.

This is why some salespeople take it personally when a customer won't buy. They seerepparttar 127341 refusal to buy as being a personal 'rejection'. Quite simply, in selling, if you constantly feel rejected you cannot achieve exceptional results.

If you arerepparttar 127343 type of person who takes "No" as a personal affront to your very worth, selling will be an exquisitely painful process for you. The fact is most people, sensitive or not, will avoid pain at all costs. It's easy to become a master avoider and procrastinator.

If you cannot confront and take steps to resolverepparttar 127344 emotional issues that keep you prisoner and sabotage your success, then no amount of sales training will change your results forrepparttar 127345 better. Many people have wonderful people skills and are natural persuaders, but as long as they continue to equate their self-worth with whether or not anybody wants to buy their products, they will set themselves up for a fall.
