COLLEEN'S TIP TO EMERGING SALES LEADERS: "The people that are going to make it and thrive and win the future as we call it, are now saying, 'This is good, I'm being forced to learn how to use new skills, new technology. I'm learning to adapt and flex.' They're actually seeing that this is setting them up for future success. The others fall into what you call external locus of control. It's 'Woe is me' and these are generally the victims of the world. 'None of my prospects are buying, I have the worst prospects, I don't have a good product.' Their perspective is, 'I can only be successful and happy when external circumstances line up.' It's all perspective. If it is to be, it's up to me. Resilient people, they take control. 'I've got to do more activity, I've got to learn new skills, I need to be more consistent and asking for referrals, I need to practice more. Their whole mindset is, 'I'm not going to focus on what I can't control, I'm focusing on what I can control."
