The 75 Best Motivating Sales Quotes

If you are an entrepreneur or dedicated to Sales, you are part of the select Club of Athletes of the Professional World (CAMP). You face large doses of pressure, negativity and much of your success depends on your ability to grow each day.

For each operation or contract you close, how many calls, emails or face-to-face meetings have previously concluded in indifference, “no” or in certain cases even hostility? They’re not few, right? To be successful in business you need to learn how to manage yourself and how to manage rejection.

The need to overcome rejection, self-motivate and grow as a human being is something that many of the best thinkers, leaders and entrepreneurs of our time have felt.

Below is a list of motivating sales phrases that you can take with you, print and repeat every day before going out to sell or in the omnipresent moments of doubt that, do not hesitate, will arrive.  These are true pearls of wisdom and pure gasoline for the spirit!
