Change your mindset and from now on, take a very critical look at your colleagues. Colleagues are your teammates, but they are also your main internal competitors! Never forget that!
Just like playing in a professional football team, this is also the case at your office. They all train and play together and share a common goal. Everyone wants to win! But in the end, all these players want to make even more money. Everyone wants more game time! They want to be in the spotlight and achieve maximum success, just like you! They all want to play in the premier league and maximize their profits: All at the expense of your starting place in the team!
Watch out and stay on your guard! You should try to find a subtle balance between a friendly team player and an “ice-cold sales killer.” A “killer” who will immediately destroy anyone who tries to steal from him. A person who can never be fooled by his colleagues.
If you play this game better and smarter than your colleagues in the sales department, you will eventually become the most successful salesperson and you are guaranteed to earn a lot of money! I know you will succeed!
