Trying to connect with new business but keep getting rejected? 4 Days on the phones and no new meetings? Sometimes it can be difficult to stay motivated during a tough day in the office. My mantra is the word ‘Next’ which I use whenever a negative thought encroaches on my focus. However sometimes a quick 5 minutes watching a motivational movie scene is all I need to steer me back in the right direction.
So the next time you start getting that feeling, you know the slowly growing negativity gremlin, stop what you are doing and spend a few minutes watching one of these motivational movie scenes and then get back to it.
Note that as I am a salesperson these three motivational movie scenes are related to this profession.
1. Mad Men – Don Draper Sales Pitch

2. Glengarry Glen Ross -ABC Always be Closing
3. Boiler Room – Act as if scene
So the next time you feel like you’ve hit the wall, take 10 minutes to watch these motivational movie scenes, say a little ‘next’ to yourself and push on. Remember only one person determines your level of success.
