The Sales Buzz Issue 147 - Quotes for Sales Motivation
January 16, 2012

In this week's Sales Buzz:

Do motivating quotes make a difference, can you be inspired by certain phrases, what's your favourite quote, phrase, or mantra...

Quotes for Sales Motivation

Quotes for sales motivation are used on training courses, in books, online training, DVDs and by sales managers and motivational speakers.

The aim of all these motivating phrases is to get sales people and business owners to change.

To become motivated, inspired, or to change their attitude or behaviour.

But do they work?

Have you made any changes because you heard an inspirational quote or a motivating mantra?

In some cases the answer is yes.

I’ve been in sales for over twenty years now and a phrase that I heard from a sales trainer many years ago is still with me today, and I frequently make use of it.

Accept what you can’t change and
Change what you can’t accept.

This motivational quote has been in my mind whenever I’ve faced changes throughout my career that meant I had to adapt. It has also guided me to realise when the changes were of a nature that I was never going to accept and it was time to move on.

Motivational quotes for sales people work best when they have been repeated over time, in sales meetings, or as part of a personal development program. They also have an impact when they are explained using examples and put into context.

What’s your favourite motivating quote

We are building a whole page full of your favourite sales or motivational quotes.

We are going to publish one of our favourite quotes and change it every few days. With the quote will be an example of how to use it to get the best results and what situations you can put it into.

You can also share your favourite motivating sales quote or phrase or mantra or whatever you want to call it.

Later this year we will put all the best quotes into an eBook on the website. So take a look at what we think are inspirational and motivational quotes for sales people and if you think you have better ones share them at Motivating Quotes...
