Sales Work And 10 Affirmations For Hourly Salespeople

Sales Work

I put in hours and hours in the car, driving around to different places, collecting mileage money, and my hourly pay, and I get paid that money whether they buy or not!

It’s really the least stressful sales job I’ve ever had.  And I’ve had plenty.

Really though I don’t want to digress into my failures.  I want to focus this post around what’s working in my life.  What’s working in my sales life.

So far I’m up to 12 sales that I know of.  I’m racking up the business and it only looks like I’m going to be bringing in more.  There’s talk of moving me to the office and not work in the store anymore.  That would be a bittersweet day as I really do love working in the store.  It’s easy!

Working in the store is also easy to improve.  What I should be thinking about is how I can improve the sales calls so I can make good use of my time in the office.  Expanding business.

The depressing thing is that when I looked up art by schizophrenics I saw a man in a business suit holding a noose.  Really it’s not depressing because I personally can’t stop working and my reason why is my family.  So there’s no need for a noose for this schizophrenic business man.

I drive around and I do the sales work, and I talk to people.  I’m always smiling for an introduction.  I think it helps set people at ease, they can tell by looking at me that I’m doing the right thing.  And I am doing the right thing by selling food.  It helps support life.

I heard a voice that said what I should do to serve God is to write things that will bring people “peace” of mind.

So I wanted to write some affirmations for salespeople, when they are getting paid hourly and it really doesn’t matter whether they make the sale or not, so that they may make the sale and grow.

Affirmations For Hourly Salespeople

  1. You move effortlessly through each interaction, enjoying the value in each.
  2. You set yourself up for a win each day with your morning routine.
  3. It’s possible you could win the lottery tonight, and you’d be rich beyond your wildest dreams.
  4. You are a joyous creator.
  5. You are grateful for all the good God has worked in your life.
  6. Thank you God for allowing me to become a great sales success.
  7. May the paychecks get bigger and bigger as I get better and better.
  8. May I bring the win/win to the table each and everyday.
  9. May the company be rewarded for employing me.
  10. May I grow finer each day as a great bottle of wine.

2 More Deals Down, And That Makes 12 Career Sales

Part of me wants to write something different, something less about me, but I don’t want to disappoint on the title, so this post is about me scoring 2 more deals.

It came today when I looked at the deliveries.  There were three.  2 of them I had dropped lunches off to previously.  Free lunches, 2 of them, for them to be loved by.  Then they ending up ordering again.  It’s a beautiful process.

Right now I’m focusing on schools and I’m selling fundraising for the schools, for the students to sell our gift cards for the school to make money.  All I can say is that I do the work, I get paid, and I just pray that I’ll get the deal, that everything will work out.

I really am set up to do something epic right now.  I’ve got the school fundraising I’m selling, and I’ve got Christmas.  I hope to get a deal for each.  Really it doesn’t matter because I get paid whether I sell or not, I get paid to do the sales work, not for the sale.

So I’ve got a good job.  I’m happy.  The voices get worse the more I get involved with selling, but I figure that just comes with the territory and I’m in for an interesting ride.

I just wanted to report another one of my successes, a magical moment, for you so that you could trust me in the future when your on my email list.  I want to build this thing up for you, so that you become a raving fan of mine and buy everything I sell.

I’m working on an album now, and I’m going to give it to my wife first.  It’s really about her, as I write love songs, so I want to know what she thinks about it.  I’m pretty excited about the feedback as I’ve been working really hard on it.

Although I can’t kid myself.  Playing guitar and writing songs and singing them is easy.  I do it for fun.  I figure I might even be able to make a living at it.

So there’s a lot more to it than just making sales and earning a reputation as a great salesperson at my work.  It’s also about my hobbies, my personal life, my family, and the list goes on and on and on.

I got these two more sales, and it makes me feel better because they are investing a lot of money into me to get sales.  Hearing that it’s working is GREAT news.

I want to do more.  I want instead of visualizing that I’ll win the lottery to visualize being a “great sales success” at my job.  I figure it couldn’t hurt.  It would only take me out of one delusion into another, but one I might be able to actually do.

I don’t know if I ‘ll be able to actually do “great sales success”.  I’m addicted to cigarettes, drink alcohol, and party.  I don’t know that people with those problems can live their lives in balance enough to really have massive long term success.  I could be wrong.  I never thought I would ever make it this far with a sales job.

I am making it, despite my struggles in my personal life.  I am successfully earning a steady paycheck and helping to support my family.  As a schizophrenic, even though only mild and never hospitalized, I see that as an accomplishment.

I am accomplishing things.  I’m doing the right things and I’m getting better results everyday.  It’s a beautiful thing.

Hopefully the next post will be less about me and more about how I can help you, and I hope that I can.

Here’s to Your success,

Getting Paid, And Knowing Your Going To Get The Sale

That’s the beauty of an hourly sales job.  They pay you by the hour, whether you sell or not, and you do the work.  Sure it may not pay as much as a commission sales job, but that’s also harder to do.

When the company has invested in you, the sale comes naturally.  You find your people.  They will talk to you.  They will have you a little longer than most of the people you talk to.  You find them a few times, maybe if your lucky 4, throughout the day.  I try to make their day a little better.  Sometimes it’s like it’s working.

All I know is that I haven’t even been working there 2 years and I’m already doing what the owner was doing.  Food presentations.  Lunch and learns.

And I really think I gave a great presentation at my last meeting.  It was with a dozen people and I did 5 minutes.  I almost want to do longer.  Really get my presentation skills up there with the best of them.  I made my audience laugh a couple of times, and at one point I had to stop to answer a question from the audience.

She wanted to know if her sandwich came on lettuce instead of bread, to which she found the answer was yes.  She didn’t eat bread.  She’s a special customer and we cater to her.  God help the people who work there when the special orders come in.

It really is work fulfilling orders.  There’s a lot that goes on with it that the customer might not be thinking of.  If I had a longer presentation i would fill them in on things.  Things like the torch.

The torch is used to glaze the hams and turkeys, and the people, when they are using the torches  are really sweating.  That’s work.  I did it for a little while, but I really wasn’t any good at it, and I got a terrible blister on my left hand from holding the torch.  They found other things for me to do, but they use those things in our stores… it’s amazing what they do to the meat!  Fire and sugar and spice, down into the meat.  Makes for a great flavor.  It’s special to me and it’s what I’m selling.  It’s a good product.

People love it.  They will stand in line for it for an hour over the holidays.  Three times a year, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, it’s all hands on deck.  They stand in line, and we work, and they get their hams, and we get their company, and their money.  It’s a fine place if you like ham or turkey, or even vegetarian if you eat that way.  We do it all.

So if you ever need ham, I’m your man.

Especially if your reading this from Baltimore, MD, I love you.  Just reach out to me on the contact page, and maybe we could set up a deal.

Because that’s really what I’ve been doing, is working on becoming a great sales success…

That’s not to say this thing with the lottery is over.  Really it’s only just begun.  I won $50 yesterday, and $1 today.  I did not win the Mega Millions jackpot, even though after I won $50 on the scratch off, I bought 2 tickets for the Mega Millions.

The point is I must have spent over 5 years visualizing for the lottery win, and having dreams about it happening, and did not win the jackpot.

I just thought that the time I could spend visualizing winning the lottery I spend on making my job work.  What’s the worst that could happen if I did that?  It’s either going to work out, or it’s not.  The visualizing isn’t going to hurt anything.  Or will it?

Should I just leave it alone and try not to think about it?  Should I occupy my time with doing housework or reading?  The answer to these questions must come from within me.  I say onward, and lifeward.  If that means visualizing yourself getting a big deal, even though it makes your symptoms worse, keep visualizing getting a big deal.  When you get it, it might even come as a surprise you’ve waited so long for it to come.

And it will come.  You’ve done the work.  You wear the sales uniform.  They have your phone number.  All it is is dropping the information off with the secretary.  I don’t actually talk to the people in charge of doing the fundraising.  It would be good if I could meet those people right there when I’m giving out the information.  They however are not in, so I have to work with the secretary.  They usually like me to just say hello, drop off the information and leave.  I don’t stay very long, unless they let me.

What I should say to them is I’ll give them $100 if they don’t buy what I’m about to sell them.  I heard that on a Tim Ferriss podcast.  There was a guy who sold credit card processing on transparency, and service and outsold everyone else in the company.  That’s what he would say to them when he walked in the door, he said he would always have their attention.

I don’t know if I would say that to someone in a school, which is what I’m focusing on this month of August 2017.   But that might be a good line for a business person.

The point is, I don’t visualize for the lottery, I visualize for great sales success.  What it looks like so far is reading and journaling.  And I want to get this work done for my family.  I have a son, and a daughter.  I have reasons to work.  Not to say you can’t have reasons to work if you don’t have kids.  I’m saying that having kids can’t hurt your reasons to work.

Those are my sentiments for this day, I hope that your days are great, and that you have many more ahead of you,

My New Quit Day Is Today, August 2nd, 2017

And I’m really going to go for it this time.

I just bought a vape and I’m going to stay true to being tobacco free.

I figured by telling this to the world via my blog, it will only help my chances of breaking free of tobacco and living a better quality of life.

In all honesty I’m very excited.

I’m excited about the money I’m going to save, and I’m excited about feeling better everyday.

I’ve got this goal of getting 2,000 email subscribers by 2018.  It’s a big goal, considering I’ve only got 2 email subscribers, one of them being myself.

But I think with the money I save from quitting smoking I’ll be able to buy some ads, and really get my home page some much needed attention from the internet.

I just wanted to write this to you to mark the day I officially stopped smoking for good, and see how long-hopefully for life, I can quit this time.

Rest assured, I’ll keep you updated and hopefully I can help other smokers stop smoking.

For now I’m going to get back to my personal development by reading and journaling.  I’ve got to do the work so I can get a business up and running on the internet.  I’ve got to keep putting the work in, day in day out, to get the job done.  And the job is to help schizophrenics work.  I really should buy another course and find out if my idea is going to work.  Maybe you could leave a comment and let me know if YOU think helping schizophrenics work could ever become a business that paid me.

So there’s a lot more to it that just quitting smoking.  It’s a lot of things.  Family, money, work/life balance, personal life balance, blogging… the list could go on and on.

I really just want to be of service.  I don’t know if any of this is going to work.  I’m just working on it.  I’ve got to figure it out.  I’ve got to see if my plan can work.

The only way I can do that is to work.  Right now I’m writing about schizophrenia and work, or schizophrenia and selling, and I think that that could really be helpful to people, or at least entertaining/inspiring.  What would be inspiring is if I had $100,000 in the bank from my work online.

But for now I have my job, that pays me a steady paycheck, and I’m not on disability.  That’s an accomplishment for a schizophrenic, and one I think is worth writing about.

So I can only go up from here, and quitting smoking is the smartest move I can make for long term gains.  I think you will like that I’m writing about quitting, as it’s healthy and will probably cut back on the number of unnecessary problems I have.

So if your in the business of personal development, like I am, you may want to quit smoking so you can be a better example for people, namely your children.  Here’s to your success in eliminating the source of suffering in your life, so that you can break free and be happier, and healthier.
