How to Overcome All Your Fears of Selling


Do you love what you do but hate the thought of having to "sell"

your services?


Do some of these fears arise when you think of selling?:

* fear of rejection

* fear of being thought of as pushy

* fear of getting a "no"

* fear of being seen as a salesperson

* fear of .....................


Do any of these fears resonate with you?


What impact is your fear of selling having on your business?

Your fears and unease around selling are no doubt holding you

back from having conversations with potential clients. Or, if you

are having these conversations, you can feel your fears

negatively impacting your results.


Just imagine if all your fears around selling were eliminated.

I invite you to think about this for a minute. How would having

no fears of selling make you feel? What difference would that

make to your business?


Would you feel more confident and relaxed? Would you speak to

more people about what you have to offer? Do you think you would

attract more clients?


The question then is what are the steps to overcome all your

fears of selling?


The first step is to identify all your fears of selling. I'd

encourage you to make a list right now before reading further.


Some of your fears arise because of your perspective on selling

and some of your fears arise from simply not knowing how to sell

- you don't have a selling skill set. So your fears can be

classified as either "perspective fears" or "skill set fears".


With respect to each of your "perspective fears", it is your

perspective (or viewpoint) that is giving you these fears.

Change your viewpoint, change your perspective, and you will

reduce or even eliminate your fear. To overcome your

"perspective fears", the process is to simply change your

perspective to one that empowers you rather than one that makes

you fearful and holds you back.


For example, a lot of people fear getting a "no". This arises

from the perspective that a "no" is a bad thing. I'd like you

to try on the perspective that a "no" can be a very good thing

and that you are sometimes grateful when you get it. In fact, I

would encourage you to be in active search of a valid "no". The

sooner you find a valid "no", the better it is for both you and

your potential client as you will save each other a lot of time.

How does this perspective on a "no" make you feel?


Can you see how powerful it is if you change your perspective on

a "no"? The same process can also be used for your other

"perspective fears" around selling. Look at each "perspective

fear" and ask yourself what perspective you can take so that you

are empowered rather than fearful. Hint: try the direct

opposite and explore what it would be like if you took on that



There will be some fears that will not be altered by changing

your perspective and these are the selling "skill set fears".

These are the fears that arise because you do not know how to

have a sales conversation as you have simply not learned and

acquired the necessary sales skills. These "skill set fears"

can be overcome by increasing your competence in selling and

learning the skill of having a sales conversation.


Find and learn a simple process for having a sales conversation

so you can become skillful at it. Be careful because you

absolutely must find and learn a process for having a sales

conversation that is in alignment with who you want to be. If

you learn a process for having a sales conversation that is in

alignment with who you want to be, you will enjoy having sales

conversations and your fear of having these conversations will

be reduced and even eliminated.


If you work on your "perspective fears" and your selling "skill

set fears" as I have outlined above, you will find yourself not

only having more sales conversations but you find yourself

actually enjoying them too. I have a hunch that you will also

start to get a lot more clients!

Home Party Plan Tips

How would I use this Fabulous Product?

I break the guests up into teams with 3 or 4 on each team.  I give each team a piece of paper with 25 blank lines on it.  I pick one of my products and set it in the center of the room.  I then give the teams 2 minutes to come up with as many uses as they can.  I tell them to be specific because any duplicate answers will be crossed off.  At the end of the two minutes I have the teams read off their answers.  All duplicate answers are crossed off.  The team with the most answers left wins.  I give a small gift to everyone on that team.  You could play "What would I wear with this" or "What would I cook with this " or any variation that would fit your products.  It is a lot of fun and gets your guests thinking about using your products.
