25 Quotes for Salespeople to Inspire You When You’re Feeling Low

25 Quotes for Salespeople to Inspire You When You’re Feeling Low

No one on the planet is enthusiastic 100% percent of the time… well, no one fully sane anyway. For most of us, enthusiasm is fleeting and something that needs to be replenished from time to time, especially in the rollercoaster world of sales, where rejection is part and parcel of the job.

So how does one keep their enthusiasm topped off, especially when curveballs are coming from all directions? Usually, it starts with self-care: getting enough sleep, eating better, and being kind to yourself.

If that’s not enough, reading some inspirational quotes can actually help, as silly as it might sound. The following quotes not only remind us that much of our outcomes are determined by our efforts, they also encourage us to push forward through adversity, because oftentimes, it’s darkest before the dawn.
