    1. 2. “ INSANITY: doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” ~ Albert Einstein
    2. 3. <ul><li>“ HABITS” </li></ul><ul><li>“ We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.” - Aristotle </li></ul><ul><li>“ Habits are cobwebs at first, heavy cables at last.” -Chinese Proverb </li></ul><ul><li>“ Good habits, once established are just as hard to break as bad ones.” -Robert Puller </li></ul><ul><li>“ Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, hard to get out of.” -Benjamin Franklin </li></ul><ul><li>“ Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.” --_______(?) </li></ul>
    3. 4. <ul><li>“ Walking the Walk” </li></ul><ul><li>1. Our success in work (and life) is tied directly to the habits (good and bad) we develop. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Habits (good and bad) are learnable through practice and repetition, practice and repetition, practice and repetition (28 consecutive days to develop a good one). </li></ul><ul><li>3. Once a skill/habit locks into your subconscious mind it becomes a permanent part of your behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Once it becomes a habit, it becomes both automatic and easy to do . </li></ul><ul><li>5. Since all of us already know much of what we need to do to be successful, the challenge is : ‘ talking the talk ’ and ‘ walking the walk’, ‘ gittin ‘r dun’, just doing it , or just forcing ourselves out of our personal comfort zones </li></ul>
    4. 5. <ul><li>The True Sales ‘PRO” </li></ul><ul><li>1. Able to make and keep unconditional commitments.

( >2% ) </li></ul><ul><li>3. They are A-Player competent - not just possessing the skills to succeed in sales, but the willingness to execute those skills day-in and day-out. </li></ul><ul><li>4. They take full responsibility for meeting their targets. In fact, they find ways to exceed those targets - despite the adversity and obstacles. </li></ul><ul><li>5. They are grounded in an effective sales methodology that enables them to control the sales process . They are a student of sales. </li></ul>
    5. 6. <ul><li>The True Sales ‘PRO” #2 </li></ul><ul><li>1. Smart </li></ul><ul><li>2. Self Starters </li></ul><ul><li>3. Great Communicators </li></ul><ul><li>4.
