At some point you’re going to lose a piece of business. That loss immobilizes some salespeople. They ruminate about the deal that went bad, what caused it and blame themselves.
The reality is that all successful salespeople sometimes lose deals. They analyze what went wrong and resolve to avoid doing that again. They do this analysis once. Then they move on.
If you find yourself stuck reliving what went wrong over and over again, you have to figure a way of stopping this destructive behavior. You are wasting your time. You can’t go back. You can commit to doing something different moving forward. Staying angry is costing you your happiness. It’s also costing you future sales.
