No One Can Stop You

2 min readNovember 16, 2021

No one can stop you. Except you.

In your sales career, there will be no shortage of people with good intentions telling you what things you need to do. And how you need to do them.

But, here’s the thing. None of those people are you. They don’t experience and navigate the world the way you do. They don’t share your personality. They don’t interact with other humans the way you do.

So, it’s up to you to learn how to build on your unique aptitudes, skills, curiosity, empathy and more to become the best sales version of you.

Constantly put yourself in the position to learn and experiment. Prioritize acquiring new knowledge that you can combine with your sales experience, to enable yourself to take the right steps at the right time to help your buyers make the right purchase decision.

What you need to learn will not be the same as it is for other sellers. The specific set of things I’ve needed to learn to achieve success in my career have been unique to me. This is why a cookie cutter approach to developing the skills and potential of sellers will usually fail the seller.

How you learn will not be the same as it is for other sellers. Perhaps you learn primarily from your manager. Maybe it’s from training. Or from listening to recordings of your calls and the calls of your peers. Or perhaps you learn from listening to a podcast. In my career, I’ve probably learned more about selling from my listening to my customers.

However, the source of your learning is not as important as the discipline of learning. What are you intentionally learning everyday to help you improve?

I’ve personally been inspired by these words from Zig Ziglar: “If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.”

No one can stop you. Except you.
