New Year, New Motivation

With the new year often comes new motivation to hit the ground running and close sales with gusto. But if you need to add a little pep to your step, “Virgilisms” can put you on the right path.

Virgilisms are short sayings from TVC Marketing founder Virgil Coffee which are meant to keep sales associates on the right track. These snackable pieces of motivation can also snap you out of a slump, providing an extra jolt of inspiration to overcome obstacles and achieve your sales goals.

If you wait for perfect conditions, you'll never get anything done

Don’t wait to take action until you dot all your I’s and cross all your T’s, because you may never get started. Perfect conditions are fairy tales procrastinators use to justify inaction. Virgil didn’t wait for perfect conditions to start TVC Marketing. Instead, he built the business from the ground up – sleeping in his car and showering in truck stops as the sole TVC Pro-Driver salesman. Had he waited for perfect conditions, you wouldn’t be reading this blog or earning commissions because the business wouldn’t exist. The same is true for your own business.

ready, fire, aim

This may seem counterintuitive, but it makes perfect sense. Instead of waiting to aim, just get going. Sometimes, people take so long preparing, they miss the opportunity to act. The same is true for selling TVC Pro-Driver memberships to truckers. If you take too long aiming, they’ll already be back in their cab and pulling out of the parking lot before you can even start your sales pitch.

Believe in three things

You have to believe in the company, the product and yourself if you want to be successful. TVC Marketing knows you have the ability to be a top sales associate, but you have to believe it, too. And you must have confidence in the product you’re selling and the company that offers it. TVCmarketing.com and ProDriver.com contain a wealth of knowledge to help you understand the value the company provides to members and associates.

inspect what you expect

Following up on tasks or other things you expect to happen is crucial in ensuring they actually come to fruition. Don’t assume others will complete assignments; make yourself accountable and review progress regularly.

If it's to be, it's up to me

If you’re going to succeed, it’s up to you. Nobody is going to do it for you. Mentors and sponsors can help along the way, but they don’t make you money. Only you can earn commissions for yourself. This is empowering because it means you are in control of your success. No one can take that from you. Additionally, the TVC Blog features a variety of posts with training materials and sales resources you can use to set yourself up for a prosperous year selling TVC Marketing products.

The blog post Make New Habits, Not Resolutions is another valuable tool to help you achieve success as a TVC associate in 2019 and beyond. Happy New Year and happy selling!
