Transcript

This is the sales life. I'm your host marsh B. And I created the sales life because I believe the number one skill that you need in your life to embrace uncertainty, handle the adversity and never settle again is the ability to sell, but you don't have to be in sales to learn how to sell. I'll take the skills that I've learned in the sales profession, and I'll show you how I've applied these to every area of my life and how you can too. Enjoy today's TSL moment and see how you can apply it to your life today. For more on the sales life. Go to marshbuice.com that's M a R S H B U I C E. Stay. The method that I use to give myself advice. And this is the method I most commonly use today is I talk to myself. I do it all the time. Uh, I do it on my walks. I do it to, and from work. I do it when I'm on my runs. I talk to myself while sitting in the recliner. I did it right before I turned on this microphone. In the same manner as writing letters to myself. When I talk to myself, I'm able to emotionally distance and really ask genuine questions. How are you feeling? I mean, everybody walks by and says that to you, right? Hey man, how you doing? I'm good. Everybody says that, but see, when I'm trying to give myself advice and I'm sometimes just balled up frustrated, I'm happy, tired, hopeless, whatever it is for that day. And sometimes dude, I don't even know why just beat myself up Talking to myself by emotionally. Distancing is a way I can genuinely ask myself how you doing. And then I switch back to the first seat, the first marsh. I just voice out my frustrations. I talk about my struggles. I talk about why I'm happy. I talk about why I'm sad. I just talk and the other marsh sits there and listens. He doesn't cut marsh off. He just listens. That venting and the distancing creates that space in between to offer some answers. Words of encouragement, advice, hope. Sometimes there are the kick and ass kind of moments where I say, dude, you better stop bitching, better. Get yourself together. All right. This is a tough situation. What you're gonna do about it? Sometimes I don't need the advice. Sometimes I need to kick an ass and that's what these moments are. And other times, man, what I'll do is I'll run ideas by myself. I'll talk about and let the distancing marsh hear it out and punch holes in it. Offer some different perspectives. It's the same thing I would do for someone else. Why wouldn't I do it for myself? I come first. I'm the most important person in my life. I should matter most to myself. This is what that ability does. There, there will be time to get feedback and advice. And perspectives from others, but sometimes man, you just need a little mono. Oh man. A little one on one. Just to hear it out, just to talk it out and just to help see yourself rise. Thanks for being a part of the sales life for more on the sales life. Go to marshbuice.com that's M a R S H B U I C E.
