Importance of a Positive Mindset in Sales | Ryan Lowe

My name is John Gollum from says pop online says magazine and pipeliner CRM, and today I am joined by America’s positive attitude: coach, Ryan, Lowe from New Orleans, Louisiana, hey Dean, Ryan, yeah, excellent, Ryan’s, a motivational speaker, sales, trainer consultant and author who’s. His passion is working with companies and team members to inspire them to create a positive culture and mindset to achieve excellence, and today we’re going to talk about the importance of a positive mindset in sales.

So Ryan, we’re now in August. Right and a lot of salespeople are on a calendar year and you know maybe they’re looking at their quota now and they’re going. What looked like an achievable quota back in January is now looking a bit daunting to them, and maybe all these self-doubts and-and-and negative thoughts are creeping in. So let’s start with people like that, what advice would you give to somebody who’s? Maybe losing hope that they’re going to achieve their quota this year, one of the things that I would suggest is going back and looking at their daily habits.

What are they doing on a daily basis? Are they doing the same thing that they were doing at the beginning of the year and if they are they’re going to get the same exact results so really working out what they do on a daily basis, maybe have to shift their goals just a little bit? I know you can’t shift the quota, but you can say I whether my daily goals, my weekly goals, my monthly goals. You know if I’m only hitting $ 10 a day, I’m going to have to bump it up to 20.

If I’m a you know, if I’m on five appointments a week, I really need to be going on ten appointments a week to hit my numbers. So it’s kind of like at this point. You got to really bump up what you’re doing on a daily basis right and so, and so a lot of it is, is getting back to best practices right and getting back and figure out if you’re doing, because, let’s face it, sometimes when things aren’t going well, You kind of convince yourself you’re doing everything you can, but you realize, if you do what you just talked about, you may realize that maybe you’re not putting their best foot forward.

Yeah, that’s a lot of times. You just got to go back to the basics. You know, are you using your time correct? Are you really hitting the right prospects? Are you just hitting doors just to hit doors? Are you talking to the right decision makers? Are you asking for the business? Are you getting in front of the people that you need to be in front of, but you’re not comfortable or you don’t know how most sales people that, as I call them really don’t know how to ask for the business so they’re full of fear or they They have the mindset that this person can’t afford their product, so they’re not going to really ask and a lot of times if they would just have the confidence and build that confidence that they, when they go into a closing meeting or a network or just any Type of meeting with their client that they’re going to be successful at it.

So what are some of the ways that says people just overall can start to build a better sense of self confidence, because I I agree with you a lot of the times. Let’s face it, you mean salespeople, have been bombarded with negative stereotypes and and all of that – and they tend to often think well all the power lies in the hands of the buyer. So what are some of the ways that they can start to build self-confidence and maybe look at themselves a little differently? One of the things I always doing all my trainings is.

I have all my clients and people that I coach. I have them. You know ten things and I’ve learned this from Brian Tracy. I travel the land doing sales years. So our goal shutting time management prospecting, identifying needs, presentation, skills, closing techniques, how to handle objections, positive attitude and then self development. I always have them pick out their two weakest areas out of those ten.

That’s what you need to work on if you that you’re great at presenting, but you can’t close work on your closing and what I’d say, is: go online, find someone that is great at teaching closing techniques, you could probably go on YouTube. I know that you can buy Google closing techniques, try a couple of them um if you might be great at presenting, but your time management skills might be not where you need them to be, because you’re not getting in front of a knight enough people to present Some books: how to be procrastination by Brian Tracy, there’s a lot of great information out there that once you find your two weakest areas, you can google or go find books or find articles, and that’s why I’d say to start.

So that’s that’s an interesting point because sometimes when, when things aren’t going well people just assume it’s just it’s everything right when, as you say, it could be particular skills or particular areas of the sales process that they’re that they’re falling down on, and I guess this Is an area where sales managers could really come into play if they’re, if they’re good at observing and coaching their people? Well, that’s when I when I, when I trained sales leadership, I tell them to look for those those weakest areas and it’s not a bad thing.

We all have sure, and once you know that and once you know the areas that they need assistance with. That’s some of the things that you can hone in on and then go back to some of the other areas that they’re good at and keep working on. Those so it’s always an evolving process and you just got to stay on top of it daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly. But as you keep, you know, just getting better and better and better at what you do.

But it’s all about going back and kind of you know coaching yourself, all right man I mean when I first got in sales. I made a lot of friends and sales, but I couldn’t close a thing, but once I learned some closing techniques I would go, and I know that sounds kind of silly you’re staying in front of a mirror. Go. Do it to your wife, your husband, whatever partner and say look, you know you can you listening to this? How does this sound? You know what that works yeah, and I think that I think you right.

You raise a great point too, because sometimes we’re not that we’re not that good at at number one analyzing ourselves and, and then number two is going back and practicing the basics and as you say, I mean it’s something you can do at home. It’s I mean great sports people, I mean somebody told me a story recently about you, know Kobe Bryant, who apparently used to hit the hit the gym at 5:00 a.M.

In the morning and then go to the basketball court and he wasn’t practicing trick shots or fancy Shots he was apparently doing the most basic shot over and over again for hours, because that was the basis of everything and I think there’s a good lesson for all of us. Is that sometimes going back and examining? Oh, you know just going back and making sure you’ve got all the bases covered and finding out maybe the one you’re falling down on and practicing yeah.

My my famous quotes, our famous quote that I’ve heard is be extraordinary and ordinary things do I mean, even here in New Orleans drew brees. I’ve heard stories of him. You know, after winning a game going he’s got his wide receivers out there and they’re just flowing normal passes, cut routes, things of that nature, because those are the little bitty things that you’ve got to get. You know it’s kind of like working out.

You’ve got to have that muscle memory, even when you know your minds being negative and you’ve got all these negative thoughts in you. You know it’s the end of the month, all that kind of stuff. You got a kick in the muscle memory and that’s what I’ll get you yeah get you through, and so what are some of the things that you can do immediately prior? Because you can do all this prep work and then you can maybe come up and you have a sales call, maybe have a meeting with somebody.

Maybe you have an online meeting with them or a phone call or whatever, and a lot of people can defeat themselves in the moments before the meeting, because they just you know, despite all the prep work, they’ve done, all the doubts come back. So what are some of the things you can do to make sure that you go into an engagement with the best mindset possible. I always tell my clients take 10 minutes before you walk in close your eyes sit down for a moment.

It’s kind of like back to sports, yeah, Jack Nicklaus would would imagine and in his mind him making the final putt at the Masters it’s kind of, like you know, Kobe Bryant or some of these other ones they talk about. You know there are always picturing and imagining them winning the game or making the final shot. It’s the same exact thing say: ten minutes before you go in breathe if you’re sitting in your car before you get on a conference, call or whatever and go over your notes and have the attitude that you’re walking in with a great mindset that you are going To be the best answer, the questions that you need need to do overcome their questions and also to getting the sales person mindset.

Out of your mind and saying I’m going in as a consultant and I’m to fix the problems that this my client has, because that’s what it is, a dot work. First of all, like doctors, if you find the problem, everybody buys off of problems. It’s no problem. Once you identify that that that’s half the battle right there and if you can go into a sales or a closing meeting and explain how your feature you know, I use the ofab feature.

Application benefit how this picture works for you, how it applies, how you’re going to be successful with it and here’s the benefit. I really think keeping it simple is the best way to go. Yeah. No, absolutely, and I think, as you say, I mean going in there. Thinking that you’re you’re here to solve some problems, you’re actually you’re writing in to rescue the situation, so that should give you some confidence, yeah, yeah and absolutely so.

What are some other ways that that you can continue to keep a positive mindset, say if you’re in you go in great positive attitude, everything’s going well and then maybe something comes up in the meeting that throws you and I’ve noticed that this is one thing that Happens to a lot of people, you know when they get knocked off their rhythm or their game. Suddenly, as you said, they lose total confidence.

What are some ways of getting yourself back on track? I think about past clients. I think about even wait. Am I speaking business? I get invited to speak at these large conferences and at first that negative mindset comes in oh my gosh, and then I go back and work and think about all the big conferences. I’ve spoken at and say you know what I can do this. You know what it’s going to happen. It’s I’m going to make it great whatever I can do and you got to remember too we all get knocked down.

I mean everybody. I mean I probably knocked down more than you know that I could imagine, and it’s just thinking I know that’s a whole cliche you’ll get back up, but if you think about you’ve gotten back up before you can get back up again and most sales people that Are successful that are great at what they do? They know that they can’t win every single time. You’ve got to go in the mindset of clients.

Just can’t see it. Some clients don’t understand some clients, but if you walk in and leave everything you got at the door and you know you did your best and move on and go to your next client yeah and I think that’s a really important point that you brought up. There is to look at your past track record because you didn’t suddenly become terrible overnight right I mean you, didn’t suddenly just forget everything and not able to do it anymore, and you have successes to look back on and I think those are.

Those are really important that you that you bring them by back into your mind and you go no. I mean I can solve problems here. Maybe I can solve this person’s problem in the end. Maybe we’re not compatible. You know the solution or whatever, but I have been successful, not be successful again and one of the other things I always share with people as well. Not I do this, this kind of hit me I’m a big college football and if I love sports, the things I’m warming to is when I’ve gone through a bad season.

It’s just like sports, my favorite teams. They have a bad season. What do they do? They back the next year win the national championship where they go to the playoffs life’s the same way. You might have a quarter that gosh, don’t matter who you call they don’t answer the phone. You can’t sell anything. Nobody wants to talk to you go to the next quarter. You know what forget back and go in that you.

This is going to be the best quarter and that’s how you’ve got to just tell you got ta have instant instant. You know you forget, you got ta, forget things quickly, it’s that’s what I call it. You’ve got to be able to move on it’s the hardest thing, but at the same time, learn from it and move on and believe me it’s it’s not easy as it sounds, but it does work yeah and I think the important thing in that and it’s a Great point the important thing, and that is that, if you can look and say I did everything I possibly could during that quarter – oh yeah, it didn’t work.

Okay, it’s funny. I didn’t, but I put the effort in now. If I continue to work hard, I put the effort in next quarter, I’m going to have a go quarter, and also you learned what not to do yeah I had bad months a bad quarter or a bad year or whatever it may be. Really not. What was I doing at that time that I, even though I did everything that I thought I could do best? What was I doing that I could take out of that equation? Yeah and it’s funny, because even some of the best people right who are in many ways, a lot of us at times are unconsciously competent right, we’re good at what we do, but we couldn’t actually tell you what it is, and sometimes you have to take.

You know what it is, how we do. Sometimes you got to take a step back and say: look at your, as you said, look at your past successes, but really analyze what made it successful as opposed to just go. Oh well, I was successful, could actually look at it because I don’t think people take enough time out actually to look at what they do that actually leads to success. Yeah if you can take a day, whatever go sit somewhere to library whatever and really map out.

You know what you do great, what some areas that you need to work on. You know you need coaching. Do you need to just go online and read some articles grab some books grab some audio books. I always tell people you really want to get back into a positive mindset. Turn your car, like Brian Tracy, says University on wheels. I learned that years and years and years ago and now with the iPhone and all that it’s so much easier to listen to a YouTube or listen to an audiobook or something and the great thing about that is you’re, going to pick up an idea.

And that idea is going to flourish and that’s going to help you get through the next thing, so it might be. A closing technique might be a time. Management might be a networking technique, whatever it may be. Something’s going to refuel you and that’ll keep you inspired to keep going yeah and I think that’s I don’t. I think, that’s a great point, because there is a temptation when, when things are tough to just go, I just need to get away from all of this.

When, in fact, as you say, what you need to do is actually sit down and really analyze and then feed your mind, I mean a lot of. It is about feeding your mind with with good insights with positive insights yeah, and I tell people also to don’t. Do it just during the negative times, do it through the great times B, habit of getting up early in the morning and reading or at lunch, bringing a book or if you know you got a thirty minute job to our client, be sure you know you’re on Your book set whatever it may be because that’ll keep the momentum going because you never want to fall off the momentum, and then you got back up again.

That’s the hardest thing to do. I mean we go through the year. We take two or three weeks off. You know for Christmas and then all the sudden January first hits and we’re back up and over again, so if you’ve been doing that Christmas time, that’s when they should be claiming the not they wanted January. You know day, one of December start planning you year your goals, what you’re going to have, and in figure out all the different things that you know they’re going to help you be successful.

Absolutely this is we’re bumping up against the end of our time Ryan, but before we go I’d like you to tell people a little bit more about yourself, what you do, your books etc sure you know, as most of you know, my name is Ryan Lowe. I’ve been named by peers and clients by as America’s positive attitude coach, I go around the country speaking at large conferences, sales meeting sales, kickoff meetings.

You know through all of these different different sets, and so it’s a big circle, a big area that I cover, but also it’s been really great, so you can check out my book entitled get off your attitude.

Just go back.

They will also feel happy and be interested to listen to you in a greatest way to show that you are interested in them s by mirroring after them. There are so many things that you can mirror after, for example, their words, their tonality or even their body language, for example. If your client says that I would like to generate at least five to six figures for myself and my family, what you can do is replying back for yourself and your family.

Did you see the tonality and the words that I’m using I’m using the exact same words that they used during the last end of the set, and just by doing that, it will encourage your clients to keep on talking and elaborate more. The whole point is really get them to share a lot more about themselves, because you can find a lot more about themselves through the information that they provide and, at the same time, just by sharing.

Sales Lessons Even Stanford Students Fail – The Greatest Sales Lessons to Learn

This challenge: here’s what you can learn from their mistakes to improve yourselves, do read to the end, because I will be sharing if you some advance sales insights, that you can never get elsewhere. But as you read this article, I also want you to play this test and see whether you can pass it or not. Imagine now you are student in a Stanford class on entrepreneurship, your professor walks into the room and bring you guys into teams and give each team five dollars of funding.

You guys are tasked to compete with each other. Your goal is to make as much as money as possible within two hours and then give three minutes presentation to the class to discuss what you have just achieved. So what will you do? The typical answer goes to using this $ 5 to buy out some startup material for a makeshift carwash or lemon less debt, but the team that follow this typical path, usually are not winners of the game.

In fact, the winners don’t use these five dollars at all. They come to realize that this five dollar is just a distraction and essentially a worthless resource. So they ignore it and go back to the first principle, which is to make as much as money as possible within these two hours. They reframe the problem more broadly and ask themselves what can they actually do if they want to make as much as money as possible, starting from nothing one particularly successful team actually went to make reservations for a super popular restaurant and then serve this reservations slot to People who want to skip the queue these students generated an impressive five hundred dollars in just two hours, but they are still not the winner of the game.

The team that actually make the most money out of this use another different approach. They realized both the five-dollar funding and the two hour. Time are not the most valuable asset of the game. Instead, the most valuable resource is the three minutes presentation that they have in front of a Stanford class, so they actually sold the slot to a company. That is interested in recruiting Stanford students and walk away with six hundred and fifty dollars.

So this five dollar challenge illustrate the difference between tactics and strategy. Although this term are usually used interchangeably in our daily life, but they refer to very different concepts. A strategy is a plan to achieve an overall objective tactics. However, are the action steps that you should take to implement this strategy so for the Stanford students who fixated on this $ 5.00 being blindsided by the tactic and lost sight of strategy, but as soon throw in our wall tactics with our strategy? Our noises before the fit just because the $ 5 bill is sitting in front of you doesn’t mean that you should use it.

However, if you decide to zoom out and look at the whole thing from a broader perspective, you can actually walk away with a much more useful strategy. So what is the $ 5 tactic in your life? How can you ignore and find the two-hour window, or even better, how can find the most valuable three minutes in the opportunity once you remove yourself from what why you will discover other opportunities lurking in a plain sight, so how can apply it to sales, so many Sales people occupy themselves following other people’s tactics.

For example, if you see your competitor giving discount, then you’re also ending up giving discount. If you see others doing one for one promotion, you also follow suit and do one for one promotion. But if you follow these strategies blindly without understanding a strategy behind, you are going to fail. So if you want to learn how you can actually create effective sales strategy, I will actually be sharing a lot more about it inside this exclusive telegin blog.

On top of that, I will be also sharing some advanced sales insights there, which something that you can never find on the internet, because I have accumulated using my years of experience in sales and these sales insights are particularly useful for, ladies because the style that I’m Adopting is more gentle, it’s not pushy, which is more feminine and more ladies, like so.

Best Sales Advice I Ever Received

So I got a real estate when I was 20 years old. It was 2002 and I was just very, very young. I just gotten out of doing roofing with my father. Actually I was still roofing with my father, because when I got my real estate license, I thought I’m done with that. I’m done roofing.

Now I’m just going to do real estate, so I quit roofing. I did real estate for 30 days, didn’t sell anything of course, and had to go back to roofing and do real estate part-time. So it took me eight months, eight long months to make my first sale and as a 20 year old you know. Eight months is a really long time, especially when you really want something I mean think about it: eight months as a 20 year old wanting to not be roofing and and instead to sell real estate for a living, it was a dream at that point, it was Something that I really there was not a plan B.

There was not a second option. I was going to make it work, but at the same time the pace that I was moving towards that goal at was so slow that almost seemed impossible. They really did. I knew that it was going to happen, but it still seemed so far away during that eight months I just was like. When is this going to happen? When is this going to breakthrough, but I knew that I wasn’t going to stop.

I knew that it was going to be a lot of hard work and I knew that I was going to continue to push through until I made it happen. So that’s what I did. I continue to push through, so my first broker in Gulf Shores Alabama. You know I was the kind of guy I was trying to be a sponge. I was just trying to learn from anyone that would tell me anything. I talked to all the agents at the office asking questions.

You know, how do you do this? How do you do that? What to say here what to do here? How did you do that? You know some of the agents will come in with really big listings to me back then, you know, 350,000 was a big listing and agents would come in with four and five hundred thousand dollar listings, and I would ask them you know: how did you get how In the world, did you do that? You know it just seems so crazy to me at the time, because I was just pounding away and just nothing was happening for me, so I had to just keep on going keep on trying to figure it out.

So at some point I realized that I could look up people’s phone numbers and start calling people okay, I started I turned into a phone call making machine. We actually called it phone call: festivals, yeah. I actually made the name phone call fest, where me, and maybe two or three other agents in the office that were also newer. We would get together in this room like a boiler room kind of situation, and we would just make calls all day call it a phone call fest, you know it made it sound fun.

We’d get in. There would make the calls we laugh. I remember the first time I used the line whenever a seller told me that they would never sell that they were just going to just keep it forever. They were going to die there. I forget what they said, but I responded and – and I said, okay you’re just going to keep it till the building crumbles, and I remember that everybody in that room laughed and laughed and laughed and left.

We had a lot of good times back then just laughs and cutting up having fun and that’s what it’s supposed to be like. It’s supposed to be fun when we do this, but the best advice that ever got was from my broker, because he saw that I was putting in all this work and he saw that. I was really trying and I went through these periods of time that I just became very just not. I was just you know frustrated, I guess you could say I just wasn’t you know.

Was it all the way in it? You know I was just kind of not depressed, but I was just feeling down. You know just just wondering why I can’t you know: do all these cells that all these other agents are doing in the office and my broker saw that I was a very hard worker and that I was moving in the right direction and he came to me And he gave me the best advice that I’ve ever gotten and I still think about it to this day, and so he sat me down.

We had a long conversation and he was asking me about you know what I was doing where I think I was having trouble and you know what what he could do to help me and at some point the conversation. I told him that you know just everybody’s telling me no everybody’s telling me no, no, no, no, no and I’ll tell you why. I think everyone was telling me no here in a minute, but that’s when he looked at me square in the eye, and he said you know what Ricky and here’s the advice he said, no doesn’t mean.

No, it means not right now, no doesn’t mean no, it means not right now and it was like a light bulb went off in my head and I was like wait a minute. You know all these people that are telling me no aren’t necessarily telling me no they’re just saying that they’re not interested right now in doing anything, and so, as I started to think back through all my conversations with prospects and how they said.

No and all this, and all that I started to also realize that the reason that they were telling me no, they tried to get off the phone really quickly or or what-have-you wasn’t because they may not been interested in doing a deal huh. They might have been interested in doing a deal right. Then it was the fact that my inexperience, in my lack of communication skills up to that point, didn’t put me in a position where I could make them feel comfortable with me and connect with them and communicate that I’m here to help you you know what can I do to help you, and so that was the very first step for me towards the relationships over transactions mentality that I have now that’s got me where I am that was.

That was the first moment the when I realized you know something about relationships now, as the story goes on. Of course, you know my rise and fall happened and the fall was because I was focused more on the deal, so I wasn’t 100 sent all in with the people the relationships. What can I do to help you? It was more about you know. Do you want to buy or sell, and during that time in the market it was so easy.

You just say: hey do you want to sell because your property is worth a hundred more thousand than it was last year, and so it was very easy. Everybody wanted to sell so the scripts back, then we’re totally different and you could get away with it because everybody stood to make fifty a hundred one hundred fifty two hundred thousand four hundred thousand you know. So there was so much equity that that that was built up so fast during that period of time that you didn’t really have to twist anybody’s arm.

You know to sell the property to make so much money, so that’s kind of how I got caught into that. You know transactions closings, you know, let’s just do the deal, do you want to buy? Do you want to sell and that ended up being the downfall for me, because I was so caught up in the deals, and I wasn’t even paying attention to the fact that there was a real human on the other side that that I could create a relationship With that would turn into repeat business referrals and referrals or referrals.

So when I lost everything he came back, you guys know the story. I came back and built my business on people not deals, and now I’m to the point where I am now where I can continuously consistently do those hundred deals a year as a single agent. Now, when I came back after working on the oil rig and roofing houses, losing everything came back in the business in 2008. That’s really when I started to realize what, when Berger, was telling me about that when a prospect tells you know, it doesn’t mean: no, it just means not right now and if you have that mentality when you’re talking to your prospects – and you realize you know that, There’s a possibility that this person could do business with you in the future.

They may want to do business with you in the future. They may love you. They may really like you. They may really want to get to know you more to see if there’s even a fit to do business in the future they’re, just not ready right now to do anything when you look at it like that, then so many doors open up when you’re making your Calls your going through your business and you’re following up and you just you’re thinking more about the people and what you could do to help them and and how everything’s going to play out long-term.

Now I did get a comment on the Facebook group. There was a post actually of a young lady who said you know, I’m making all these calls I’m spending money on on the dialer and all this, and you know I have people that tell me that they want to do something in a couple years. But how does that pay my bills right now, and so I’m going to link a article below that? I did about closed deals now. Okay, so you can go there and read that, but the moral of the story is: is that number one? I don’t think this agent has made enough calls to even collect enough data to judge the situation number one, but number two.

You have to understand what I’m saying in terms of okay, there’s going to be people that want to do deals later, two years down the road next month, six months, that’s going to be a paycheck later on; okay. That doesn’t help us right now. However, when we’re doing we’re supposed to do when we have faith in the process and when no closings happen every day and we’re talking to enough people we’re going to find the people that want to do deals today, don’t just think that making the calls is only Going to get you future business, it’s going to get you right now, business as well, and now you’re building your business for now to pay your bills and the future to build your wealth all at the same time.
