Shaking the Dust off and What the F*CK Moments Have to do with being a Sales Rep

Posted by Jun 25, 2015 3:20:00 PM Ali Powell

Work is hard. Life is hard. Things cannot always be easy. Sales is not easy. 
 We are not always going to win every deal that we want to win. 
 But, we can remember to do one thing when we don't win the deal we wanted to win. 
You can either get back up OR stay down feeling sorry for yourself. 
Guess what is easy?
Falling down. Then staying down. 
Guess what is hard?
Getting up after you fall down. Getting up after you fail at something. 
As sales reps we must remember this as we come up at the end of your month, at the end of the quarter, etc. If you don't reach your goals, you will be okay. 
In sales, we cannot always win.
The failures will make you better and stronger.
Remember you are good at what you do. Don't let the failures get you too down. 
All of the "What the F*CK Moments" are the moments that will keep you going.
The What the F*CK moments are the moments that will push you harder so you will win more in the future. You have to fall down to get back up and learn your lessons. 
 Your failures are not what define you. Recognize your WHAT THE F*CK moments and shake them off. 
Keep going, get stronger and push on.

La la...

And this one right here ah.. this is for the fat girls
This one is a... is for the little brothers
This is for the schoolyard wimps, for the childhood bullies who tormented them
To the former prom queen and to the milk-crate ball players
For the nighttime cereal eaters and for the retired elderly walmart store front door greeters
Shake the dust
This is for the benches and the people sitting upon
For the bus drivers driving a million broken hymns
To the men who have to hold down three jobs simply to hold up their children
For the nighttime schoolers and for the midnight bike riders trying to fly
Shake the dust
This is for the two-year-olds who cannot be understood because they speak half English and half God
Shake the dust
For the boys with the beautiful beautiful sisters
Shake the dust
For the girls with those brothers who are going crazy
Those gym class wallflowers and the twelve-year-olds afraid of taking public showers
For the kid who is always late to class and forgets the combination to his lockers
And the girl who loved somebody else
Shake the dust
This is for the hard men who want love but know that it won't come
For the one's amendments who not stand up for
For the ones who are forgotten
For the ones who are told to speak only when you are spoken to
And then they are never spoken to speak (La la...)
Every time you stand so you do not forget yourself
Do not let one moment go by that doesn't remind you that your heart beats hundred thousand times a day
And that they have gallons of blood making every one is an Oceans
