Welcome back to our exciting new video series, Ali Reda’s Road to Sales Success! When I met Ali Reda in 2010, he was ten years into the business selling 25-30 units a month. He was obviously not at the peak of his career, but some days he felt like that. That’s what he could see from there, and we had to move to that next level for him to be able to really see what was possible.
He had spent ten years building up his business, being patient, hoping for the dam to break. He knew it was a long game from the beginning, so he was prepared to wait. When we started working together, asking questions, finding focus, being present and aware of every interaction throughout every day - that’s when it all happened.
You've got to be consistent in what you do
to your community, with your community, for your community.
You really do. Be consistent, repetitive, and patient. Be persistent. Be non-stop. People only fail because they give up. Have faith in your process, and in yourself. I invite you to watch this week’s video and start working for the long game.
Your career is not measured in 30-day increments. It’s not the instant gratification we’re looking for. You’ve got to be able to look ahead to two years, five years, ten years. You’re going to need to practice patience and reassure yourself often that this is going to work.
It’s going to take you some time. Just consistently show up. Say hello to all your friends, and make friends with all the people you haven’t met yet. You’ve got to be able to look at ahead to the end result. When the dam breaks, you’ll want to have done all you can to make it feel like a flood.
Let’s try something. Grab a pen and paper, and write down the answers to these questions…
I know our business is based on your monthly performance,
but it's not a 30-day career.
This is your career. These are your goals, and we want to help you to grow into them. We want you to forge forward, intentionally toward your dream life! There are so many wild success stories in our industry - so many that I know it’s possible for you to have one of your own.
