Four Weeks in...

I have completed my fourth week in at the new job. I continue to amaze my coworkers with my reading abilities and my voice. I am also now calling for two clients. At this time, taking personal inventory, I feel my biggest need is some self confidence. Of course there are several who read my words here on a regular basis who have been telling me this for years.

Being a sales oriented job, I have to bone up on some of my closing techniques, especially objection handling. I have been listening to quite a bit of master sales motivator, Zig Ziglar on my mp3 player. Hopefully some of this will stick.

But all in all, I'm enjoying getting up much later and not driving half as much as I did before. Please pray for confidence for me and that the compensation will follow.

Sounds like you're well on your way to success. Sometimes the confidence comes the more you settle into the job. I'm sure you'll get more of it as time goes by. Good luck to you!

Confidence comes with experience..don't expect more than you can handle...all we can do is is the BEST we have to give Cliff! If that's not enough, well, you can say, "I gave it my all" and walk away proud...just hang in there and get that experience you'll be fine!

Cliff - glad to hear you have a job - that's 1/2 the battle. Be confident in your ability - it will come as long as you have the right mindset every day. I saw Zig Ziglar in person before - great stuff! I was in sales for many years and I know how tough it can be, I have found it to be an evolving art form.

I believe the self confidence is in there....you just need to channel up your voice! You can do it!!!

Zig Ziglar is a good teacher when I was with Reality One realestate company in Parma Heights we would regulary listen to his seminares on the computer at the office.
Keep up the good work.You are awsome man!!
