What Your Sales Team Can Learn From Cristiano Ronaldo’s Habits of Success

The football community may be split about him, but there’s no doubting Cristiano Ronaldo’s success. He’s one of the best players on the planet, and he’s stayed there for a long time.

Like all of us, Ronaldo is a creature of habit. He didn’t achieve all his success overnight. It’s the little stuff he does every day that let him reach and stay at the top of his game. 

Salespeople need to be at the top of their game from the moment they pick up the phone. Here are some of Ronaldo’s habits that they might want to adopt.

1.Constant Learning

Many people grow complacent as they reach the top. They believe they’ve seen it all and there’s not much else for them to learn.

No matter how good you are, this is a wrong approach. And Ronaldo knows it.

This is why he studies the game and works on finding new ways of improving. He believes that he can always be better on the pitch.

Salespeople need to adopt the same mindset. The playing field is constantly evolving. And if you don’t evolve with it, you won’t be able to keep up even with all the talent in the world.

2.Confidence Boosting

Ronaldo’s detractors complain about his boastfulness. He knows he’s the best and isn’t shy about telling people about. He’s made a habit of replenishing his confidence day after day.

But it’s not empty talk. He can back it up with actual figures.

This is what a salesperson needs to do. Your potential clients can feel your confidence even if it’s over the phone or behind a screen. You need to keep finding new ways of showing your confidence in yourself and the product.

Of course, there’s much more to getting good at sales. Frontier Performance can help you adapt the habits of top sports performers to sales. See if you’re eligible for a free training session.
