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,

The Silence In Between The Voices Is Enlightenment

Hello,

My name is Jesse Creel.  I heard in a podcast that you should write as if someone has never read any of your other work.  So I’m writing this to you to tell you I’m a schizophrenic, and I was diagnosed at Christmas 2014.   I had done all kinds of sales jobs after the voices first started to mess with my day, and I lost control and asked some guy to fight at my work, because I thought they were all disrespecting me. That’s when the music really started to turn against me.  That’s went all the drinking and smoking and living my life out of balance really kicked me in the ass.

I had the best job I have ever had in my life, or maybe the second best considering where I now am, but it was a good job that paid me a good living.  And I was making guitars!  I was contributing to rock and roll!  Really what got me was my lack of interpersonal effectiveness.  I had a primo job, and I asked to be moved to a different, less prestigious department.  It was all because of the group of people I was working with, and it made me want to leave.  I was delusional, and the schizophrenia-which I didn’t know I had at the time, I thought I was psychic- was feeding into the delusions.  The delusion was they didn’t want me there.  The music was confirming my feelings.

I remember the stark contrast between the voices and reality when I heard a song, right after I had asked to be moved- that said “Your making my dreams come true”.  When I overheard my boss tell one of my coworkers I was moving I heard his reply that that was not the best idea.  Hindsight tells me my coworker was right.

I should have stayed where I was, and tried better to live with my coworkers, one in particular.  Gotten along with the grab-assing, and did my job, and eventually manage them all.  That’s not the way history played out though.

In the end, I enjoy the work I do more than I ever did making guitars.  I get paid less than what I made at the guitar factory, but I get more time off.  Really, if you take what I make by the hour now, I’m making more than what I made at the guitar factory.  What it comes down to now, is just making more deals.

Because the schizophrenia, to you schizophrenics out there wondering, is not what is actually going to happen.  The voices have a lot to say.  That doesn’t mean you should believe what they are saying.

Here’s another tip.  If you’re thinking of something you want to do, and you know that you’re going to be unhappy until you get it, and your choosing carefully what you want to be unhappy about until you get it, then it won’t matter if the voices tell you no.  You’ll be able to accept rejection and move on to the sale.  If you can get shaky like me, don’t worry, the shakes will pass.  You are unstoppable, and if you take that attitude, and do the work, shakes or not, you will be happy you did it.  Especially when you’re getting results.

So it doesn’t matter what the voices say.  Take the good with the bad.  And you don’t have to take the bad, and believe in some f*cked up future outcome if that’s not what you want.  You can offer them tea in your mind, and let them know “I hear you”.  Acknowledge them, and they may even leave after a while.

This, my friends, leads me to the point of this article.  Short and sweet, but it’s here for your pleasure.  And that is, enlightenment, for a schizophrenic, is the sound between the voices, when there is no sound.  Things are clear, you know what you have to do.  I read it in a book that that’s the way it is for meditation.  When your own thoughts stop and there is just silence.  For schizophrenics, even if your mild like me, when the voices stop, and your not thinking anymore, that’s when the enlightenment comes.  At least that’s what it feels like to me.

For me what I have to do is sell.  I have a sales job.  I am a schizophrenic, my bosses know I’m a schizophrenic, and they knew I wanted to sell, and they made me a salesman.  I have a great company behind me, and it’s really easy to sell.  I don’t even have any quotas!  I just sell what I sell and they pay me by the hour.

So far I have 9 sales that I know of, and most likely more I don’t know of.  My plan is to stick it out through Christmas and see if I can land a Christmas deal.  My company has a gifting program, where companies can buy gift cards, hams, or turkeys for their employee’s for that special time of the year.  I’m collecting the leads for gifting now, in the summertime, so when September comes around I’ll have some places I can go to.

I would like to land a 6 figure a year sales job, and I don’t think that it’s unrealistic to think I could do that.  Sure it would be 5 times what I’m making now, sure it would be more pressure, and sure the voices would probably get worse at times… but my job now is giving me a great deal of confidence that I CAN sell.

Then again, you never know.

My quit date is tomorrow, July 15, 2017.  I’m going to save a lot of money, and more importantly my health.  There won’t be this unnecessary suffering.  I’ll be tobacco free.  If I just quit cigarettes I’ll save $200 dollars a month, and I won’t need to get a better job to pay my bills.  I won’t need money for anything but wine.  And of course food, to pay my credit card bill, to save, and to give my wife some money.  And maybe take the kids out to the carnival.

We all need money.  And I’m making it.  And I’m a schizophrenic.  A mild schizophrenic, but a schizophrenic non the less.  On top of that I’m selling and getting results!  It doesn’t matter what the voices say!  You can have success, you just have to do the work!  So do the work!

I really appreciate you reading.

Here’s to your success,

Jesse Creel
