There are several people in the world that find their inspiration from
reading quotes. These quotes help them keep moving and constantly
trying to improve whatever aspect of their life it is. You can sometimes
feel you have hit rock bottom, but then you read something inspiring
and you are back on your feet again, with renewed energy. Quotes if
communicated properly can send strong messages, right when you need
If you are someone who is looking to develop business for your own
business or as an employee but you are not able to do it properly, or you
not as successful as you want to be, there are times when you can lose
your cool. Here are some quotes for people in the business development
“Twenty years from now you will be more
disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by
the ones you did.”
The above quote is a true example of situations where we are stuck in a
dilemma and we do not do anything. As we get through the situation we
realize it would have been better if we had acted. In terms of business
development, there are many situations where you have to make a call on the
options that you may have but you don’t and you end up losing confidence.
This is something that is most common in business development scenarios.
“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has
mastered himself is mightier still.”
In business development jobs, most people get frustrated easily, not paying
attention to the message in every person they meet. This frustration eventually
leads to anger, which mostly leads to quitting the job. You need to first master
yourself and control your anger if you want to progress further. Remember,
never lose hope!
“It’s only over when you quit.”
Business development is all about persistence. If you quit, you will never be
successful. When you have a lead you need to be persistent. Be well prepared
before you meet a prospective client and not only will you be able to impress,
but also close business.
“Every person who wins in any undertaking must be
willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat.”
Approach each prospective client as if you were going to strike a deal with
them. With this approach you will always give your best, you will approach
each client with increased enthusiasm. Most of the time, this eagerness wins
over the client and you close more business.
This is as simple as a quote can be put; the message is clear. You need to
learn a lesson from every lead that you get, does not matter if its won or lost.
There is a lesson in everything, that will help you constantly improve
yourself. Not only will you grow as a person but you will also grow in terms of
experience much quicker than anyone else.
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize
how close they were to success when they gave up.”
In terms of business development, you at times tend to mark a lead dead,
when actually you are extremely close to successfully closing it. You may
make an error in judgment and feel a prospective client may be uninterested.
You need to keep trying till your client explicitly informs you that they may
not be interested in your offer.
“Make your own way!”
Most people use tried and tested methods in business development, this is
the safest way to go. However, if you come up with your own way, you will be
able to see the logic behind it better. This is especially handy as when you
meet different clients you would know what approach to use with which
Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action
arrives, stop thinking and go in.
Its always good to give your prospective clients time and space. Take this time
to analyze the client and see how your solution/product can be of help to the
client. This will help when you go to meet the client. If you show them the true
value of your product, there is no reason why they will not buy it.
No matter how busy you are, you must take time to
make the other person feel important.
If you get a client you need to make sure that you get in touch with them
often. This is how you can network with your client also gain more leads
based on reference. Make your client feel special and they will always think
of you when looking for a business solution.
Don't take time for granted. Its limited. Truly try to
take in the best from every moment
Finally, taking time for granted at work is a definite sign of failure when it
comes to business development. You should utilize your time effectively. You
should constantly analyze, plan and implement. Learn lessons and use them
to constantly improve.
