The 12 Days of Increase Sales Leadership Questions – Day 12

Today’s question regarding how to increase sales leadership results is a very personal and simple one:

Do you truly love yourself?

I am not asking this in any narcissistic or egocentric way. What I know to be true after executive coaching and sales coaching hundreds of individuals, many do not love or even like themselves.

Years ago when Sally Fields accepted an Oscar she said in a very loud voice “You really like me.” My sense is she didn’t truly like or love herself.

One of the ways to know if you truly are comfortable in your own skin  as they say is to spend time alone. Turn off the all the distractions. Enjoy the peace and solitude. Possibly contemplate:

  • What went well?
  • What can go better tomorrow?
  • Are you internally happy with your own actions?

Maybe all those people so wrapped in their smart devices, social media exchanges are doing so because they can’t stand their own silent company. By being engage with others, they don’t have to face the solitude of their own existence?

To increase sales leadership results begins within each and every individual. This is why this question is last.

Possibly I could have started with this question first, but then the other questions would have not had the emphasis or importance.

Answering this simple question is not easy.  It requires contemplative time and being honest with yourself.

And that authentic, time consuming honesty is not something many people find comfortable.  It is far easier to quickly point out the dishonesty in others than recognizing the dishonesty within ourselves.

The New Year is now just seven (7) days away.  Imagine the possibilities as you review this question as well as those other 11 questions and how those answers could increase sales leadership results for you and for others.

To realize success, one must be comfortable in one’s own skin.  I believe it is the ability to love and accept yourself with all your pluses and minuses.
