"Get Fit" Tip of the Day: Building a Strong and Positive Mindset

Today I’m going to give you a few tips I want to share to help you build a strong, positive mindset! Working at a dealership can be stressful, which can lead to thinking negatively… this only hinders success! So here’s how to build and keep a strong and positive mindset:

1. Learn to acknowledge bad days for what they are: Bad days happen to everyone! While sometimes it might be a bad week, rather than just one bad day — but it’s important not to let it get to you. It’s absolutely okay to feel angry or upset if something goes wrong, like a deal falling through that you were hoping on closing or a customer upsets you, just remember that it doesn’t determine the rest of your week, month or year. To build a strong mindset, you have to come to terms with the fact that obstacles will come up, but know that you have the strength to get through them. 

A bad day shouldn’t stop you from living your life, but it can be hard to feel ready to try something new if you’re thinking about something bad that happened last week. Next time you have a bad day, do something to boost your confidence see how much better you feel! 

2. Give your self-talk a makeover: We often speak to ourselves in a way that we would (or should) NEVER speak to another person. Imagine your friend comes to you and says they want to start a new fitness routine. You wouldn’t respond negatively, or point out that they’ve tried several times before and never actually followed through, would you? So, why would you say that to yourself? 

Start talking to yourself in an encouraging and positive way. Instead of saying “I can’t sell 5 cars this month!” try saying to yourself “I am going to make as many calls and follow ups as possible to make sure I’m doing everything I can to sell 5 cars this month!” That simple change can make a big difference to your attitude. The more you practice being kind to yourself, the easier it becomes. 

3. Take action: To develop a strong mindset, you have to learn to take action when you’re scared. I know that sounds pretty terrifying, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. I used to be so afraid of speaking on camera, but I also realized it was important to do it if I wanted to grow my career. Instead of worrying that I was speaking in front of people I didn’t know, I started to think of it as an opportunity to connect with more people. You might feel the same way about asking for the sale, or calling a customer to follow up…. Just remember, these actions will get you closer to your goals.

4. Reflect on your progress every day: When you’re looking at a big goal, like selling a goal number of services or cars in a month, for example, it can feel overwhelming. If you happen to not close a deal or get the sale, negative thoughts can creep in and may even make you feel as though you want to quit. Try making a note of the progress you’ve made because it can make a big difference! Keep a progress tracker of your sales, calls, and follow ups – this can help encourage you, and remind you of all the positive actions you’ve done and sales you’ve made over the past few months!

You could also try taking a moment at the end of the day to ask yourself what you learned, what you could improve on and where you want to go tomorrow. Strengthening your mindset takes a bit of time and practice, but it’s so worth it! Even if you feel mentally strong, I think there is always room for a little improvement. Remember, every day is an opportunity to shape your life into what YOU want it to be! It really does all start in your mind. And that’s the Get Fit Tips of the day, thanks for watching!
