This is the One Thing That All Great Sports Teams Have in Common (And That Can Make You a Selling Superstar)

The world’s leading sports teams and most successful businesses have more in common than you might think.

How is this possible? With so many sports around, how is it possible to have one quality or thing that gets the desired results?

Similarly, how can businesses of so many different industries have something in common?

Except they do.

There’s one thing that can bring you to your goals regardless of your circumstances:

A playbook. Not just any playbook but a great playbook.

“Winging it” never works in sports or business. At least not for long.

Sports fans know how much preparation and planning goes into each game.

Think about it – how would you start creating a playbook? By defining a goal. This alone can go a long way, as clear goals are necessary for success. Whether it’s the closing percentage, generating leads, or any other goal you might have, you need to be precise.

The next question would be what do you have to do to get there. To answer this, you’d have to take a close look at your strengths and weaknesses.

This is the foundation of success.

Knowing what you can offer that nobody else can is a sure way to put yourself on the map. Some salespeople listen to their prospects better than others. Some are outstanding closers.

Every salesperson excels at something, you just need to find what you do best.

At the same time, always finding room for improvement is what gives you the upper hand against your competitors.

Once you know who you are and where you want to go, you’ll see what it takes to win.

This is how the world’s best-performing teams secure their spots.

And it’s how you can secure yours.

The moment you have your playbook, you’ve paved your way to success.

Of course, you’ll hit a few bumps here and there, but that’s part of the game.
