What's hubsport?

I agree with much of the above on territory, timing and talent. That said, I always see the worst performing reps complain that “I don’t have good customers” or “I need more help to do….” or “the customers just aren’t buying what we are selling” and then you see that they don’t put in the work or don’t know how to improve their customers businesses w their product or services.

Anyone can hit their number every year but stuff does happen thats out of your control too. Last year my biggest deal died in commit when the customer was bought. Nothing I could do but killed one component of my attainment.

Agree

Definitely echoing Salesforce 2. It’s all relative, there’s also a reason ~65% of reps per year miss quota.

Been out of town in quarantine for 9 days - I can go back home tomorrow since I’ve tested negative twice consecutively.

I haven’t seen my boyfriend in two weeks, I was supposed to go home last weekend to end things with him. I don’t think quarantine has changed my mind but now since it’s been a couple weeks since I’ve seen him, I feel like I’m being inconsiderate 🥺 I just feel heartbroken but I know I need to do what’s best for me

Having confidence to take the next step in your career is all about the process.

Thoughts —> Beliefs —> Actions —> Outcomes —> Repeat

This virtuous cycle is a continuous feedback loop that builds on itself.

Focus on positive thoughts and let the negative ones float on by.

When thoughts become beliefs, take action.

Outcomes give you data to help adjust your approach and build confidence.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

You can DIY.

A coach will get you there faster.
