Sales Motivational Quotes
dose of motivation
is one that took me years to finally realize but fortunately for me, I
did become aware of it. Here’s my quote that summarizes it in
nutshell for you this month. It will certainly apply
as sales motivational quotes to add to your collection.
One of the greatest
secrets to any success involves people skills.
What exactly do I mean by ‘people skills’?
I can safely say that after more than twenty years working in the
corporate sector, I can say that school grades and even technical
skills do not determine how successful a person will be
Instead, the most important set of
skills that will determine how far one will go in his or her career
involves dealing with all sorts of different people, i.e., people
skills. The wider the range of others in terms of ages,
and company levels that you can deal with, the better your people
This is a real eye-opener for students when I do college and youth talks.
Too often, there is so much emphasis on just getting good school
grades, that 100% of a student’s focus is on studying. Now,
get me wrong because grades are important. I don’t want
to stop studying. Grades will help get them to the next level

how far people will go in their future careers.
matter which field it is whether it’s medicine, law, engineering,
journalism, business, the arts, one of the trades or any other

usually taught in classrooms at any educational level. So
students who end up spending all their time and energies during their
school years to maximize their grades do not end up with decent people
skills. In effect, their personal development was unbalanced
towards pure academics.
Now, many people who are already in
careers probably realize this already but may not have done much about
it. They soon realize that certain people are getting
while they are not. The folks promoted may not always have
better skills or even the work experience but what they do have are
superior people skills which is what managers need these days.
happened to me. When I graduated from university, my people
skills were terrible. As a result, I didn’t get many
during the first several years of my working career. It was
when I finally realized the importance of people skills and took
efforts to develop them as part of my own personal development, did I
finally become promotion material.
you find that you could use some improvement in your own people skills,
then your honesty will serve you well. It’s never too late to
further develop your own people skills by taking seminars and workshops
on communications and business etiquette.
Today’s business world is
so much determined by working relationships between individuals, people
skills will be one of the most important set of skills that anyone can
ever develop for success. This is why this month's statement
should be among other good sales motivational quotes for your sales
force to keep.
Until next month and keep learning,
