Welcome to the Sales Life. I'm your host, marsh B, and sales is a profession, but selling is a mindset that you need in order to embrace uncertainty, handle the adversity, and never settle again. In my 20 plus years of the sales profession, I've developed five disciplines that I've applied to every area of my life, including personal and professional disasters, hurricanes shortages, recessions, obesity, homelessness, demotion, and suicidal thoughts. I beat 'em all. Be ready for anything and achieve everything with the sales life mentality. Get started with your coaching today@marshbuice.com When you're pursuing a goal, you're on one of two paths. Either you're on a path of doing something that you love to do or you're on a path that could lead to something that you want to do, rarely do you ever find your yourself in the first spot doing what you love to do and can make a living. Most of the time you find yourself on the second path that could lead to what it is that you want to do. But so many times people get to that path and because it's got so much uncertainty and because it's got so many steps, they say, I'm not doing all. And they quit and go find something that's gonna be a little bit easier. And let me be the first one to tell you if you do that, you're going to find yourself older in life full of regrets, wishing that you would've pursued that if it leads to what you want to. Or it may lead to what you want to do, or if you're not even sure if it leads to what you want to do, do it anyway. Because even if it doesn't lead to what you want to do, you'll amass some extra skills. These are extra benefits that you may be able to reference to 10 years later. You just never know. And sometimes as as you do that the path actually unfolds and opens up where it wasn't there before. Opens up the possibility and the opportunities to be able to pursue what it is that you want to do. Sometimes you know, it leads to what you want to do, but it seems overwhelming and you're like, I did all this work to get here and now I gotta do another 10 years to get there. Yeah. Sometimes that's what it takes because here's what's at play here. As you pursue the thing that you want to do and doing things that you feel like are beneath you feel like they're not gonna lead to anything as you pursue these things. Here's what's at play. You are building an infrastructure. A web, if you will, of skills, of techniques, of knowledge to be able to withstand the level of success that you want to go to. Because if you went from where you are today to where you want to be, instantly. People would fuck you over because you wouldn't even know what to look for. You wouldn't even know what questions to ask. And also when adversity strikes, you've got nothing to anchor and step back on and put your footing there and push back off because you didn't build a skill level to be able to do so. Or if you make a huge mistake, you wouldn't know how to recover because you didn't build any skills From there. It would almost be like having a 10 foot ladder with only two rungs on it. A bottom rung and a nine foot rung. All that in between. So if you were on that top rung and you slipped and fell, you're gonna break some shit on the way down. That's what you have to look at. So if the pack leads to what you want to. Damn it. Do it, man. When I got into sales, I wanted to get into management because I was college educated. I thought, Hey, I could get into management. No, sir. They made me sell cars and I had to learn to sell cars and once I got into management, I understood it because how could I coach someone if I've never done it before? Also, how could I relate to what they're going through? And when adversity strikes, if I have the experience built up, I know what to do in those situations and I can coach other people what to do as well. See, that's what you have to understand as you're building the path to where you want to be. There is no MMA champion ever became champion without being punched, and that's what you. You wanna be successful but not get punched in the face? No. Those MMA fighters, they have to feel those punches that way they're not caught off guard. They're not surprised. They had it in practice, they had it in fights. Sometimes they've been knocked out, they've had broken bones. They familiarize themselves with the pain, with the uncertainty, with the fear, and what they're able to do is they're able to navigate and dance with that as they continue to notch up the winds. The same is true for. You're gonna have to take some punches. You're gonna have to take some steps back. You're going to have to take a long path. And if you're willing to do it, man, it's gonna pay off. The NFL's Insider, Jay Glazer, who's about this tall that you see on Fox. He worked 10 years for no. And so he was hustling, he was grinding, he was outworking everybody. He was bringing the scoops, he was landing the interviews. He was doing all of that and getting no pay for it, but he kept doing it and finally, 10 years, they gave him a five figure salary, and just a few years after that, he inked a seven figure salary. See your goals are gonna take twice as long and be twice as expensive, but if you stay with it, they will pay with compound interest. Trust me, I'm living proof of that. So the path that you're on, is it something that you love to. Or if it's not, will it lead to something that you want to do? Keep it simple. Keep it moving. Never settle. Keep selling. Stay in the sales life.
