Why Goal Setting Is Important In Sales Organisations?

Should salespeople set personal goals over and above their sales targets? I mean, targets are there for a reason, to motivate your sales team to perform and achieve the monetary incentives you have set for them. Many sales managers think this should be enough. So why do so many sales people miss their sales targets? And what does this have to do with organisations setting goals for sales people? When I ask sales people why the business has set them sales targets, and who they are for. The usual response I hear is “they are for the salesperson”, but this is WRONG. Sales targets are not for the person, they are for the shareholders. Businesses are required to plan and forecast revenue, [...]

How To Create Your Personal Breakthrough

Did you wake up this morning hoping today will be the day for your personal breakthrough? Everyday we see breakthroughs happen. A new artificial intelligence technology making waves in the market, a new overnight success actress stars in a Hollywood blockbuster, an IPO that makes the founders of a business billions in a single day. “When will I get my personal breakthrough?” We often see others having breakthroughs and wonder when it will be our turn. After all, we deserve just as much success as those people. We are just as talented, or smart, or determined as those people in the headlines, so surely our personal breakthrough is just around the corner? The problem is that we do not see what happened [...]

Productivity Hack – Audio Learning

I remember the moment a friend of me handed me my first audio training program. "Listen to this", he said. "I think you'll really like it!" He was right. This one audio program changed my entire approach to learning, reading and the way I consume content. The audio program my friend gave me was Personal Power II, by Tony Robbins. This audio training has been on sale for over 30 years now and has certainly impacted more lives than just my own. However, for me, it opened my eyes, and ears, to the idea of learning through another medium other than reading. At this point, getting audio learning content was not easy. Books had yet to begin the transformation into the audiobook, [...]

Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

At the beginning of every year, people set New Year's Resolutions, only to have them fail a few weeks later. In fact, recent statistics suggest that only 9.2% of people feel successful in achieving their resolutions each year. The reason why New Year's Resolutions fail is not due to lack of enthusiasm or passion. If that was all it took to achieve something, we would all hit all of our goals. Instead, the real reason people don't follow through with their resolutions comes down to a lack of understanding of behaviour change. In fact, there are 5 main reasons why New Year's Resolutions fail to work, and some simple steps we can take to fix this. Before we get into those 5 [...]

Why Don’t We Take More Action

Most of understand that our results are a direct reflection of our actions. If we plant the seeds of an apple, then at some point in the future, we are going to be picking apples from the tree in front of us. If we want cherries, then we needed to have planted cherry seeds instead. It makes no sense to plant apples then get upset when it turns out we actually wanted cherries in the end. So if we know that our actions lead to our outcomes in a cause-effect relationship, then why don’t we take more action? And more importantly, why don’t we take more action in the specific direction of our goals? I mean, we are all busy all the [...]

Be Extraordinary Talk On Fear

I recently gave a talk on fear for Be Extraordinary Talks, a London-based personal development MeetUp group. The talk was on the general topic of fear and how to get over it, which isn’t the ‘nicest’ of topics, and so I decided to attempt to address the topic with a more lighthearted approach. The title of the talk was “Modern Day Fears, Matt Damon & The Correct Use of 4-letter Words” and involved concepts from some of my other posts on Bravery and Getting Outside Your Comfort Zone, but also looked at historical elements of fear written about by Napoleon Hill in The Master Key To Riches.

33 Ways To Live A Better Life Every Day

Life is for living, and here are my top 33 ways to live a better life every day. How many will you experience today? Laugh Great abs and happy wrinkles are two by-products of laughing lots.

Could This Be The Root Cause Of All Problems In Life?

Is it possible that the root cause of all problems in life could boil down to the same issue? I’ve been exposed to a lot of people’s problems over the years, both in my coaching and training sessions as well as of my own creation, and lately I’ve been noticing something of a trend. More and more of the problems seem to be caused by a lack of communication, not because the person doesn’t want to communicate, but because they are scared of how the other person will react to the communication. When something goes unsaid in a relationship, whether that be interpersonal, business or friendship, a void opens up. Whilst initially this may appear small, if it is not addressed it [...]
