Seller - a dream job?
In my trainings, I experience again and again that sellers do not like to admit what they actually do day in and day out. They describe themselves as customer advisors, key account managers, describe the industry in detail or prefer to call it that Companyfor which they are "active".
Teachers, doctors, or engineers have been leading the popularity of top-level professions in Germany for years, according to the results of regular market research on the topic of professions. This also recently confirmed the results of an international study by the GfK Association, for which 28.000 people in 25 countries were asked about their trust in professions.
Security as a criterion
For many years, I have been dealing with the image problem of salespeople and, even a passionate saleswoman, I have noticed one thing: the market researcher asks what a job is, and depends on the future.
If one uses as a popularity criteria "crisis security", then in my opinion, another job is very far ahead on the list of Job Hit Parade: the seller!
Seller as a guide and consultant
In the age of the Internet, virtually every good is accessible to everyone. There is an over-offer of products and information. Potential buyers quickly lose the overview and thereby the motivation to buy. Now comes the seller or also representatives in the game.
Today it has an even more important role than in the past. It acts as a guide, as a guide in the supply jungle. Like a scout, he helps the customer find the right product and the right service for his needs. This is at least the case for the seller, who takes his professional ethos seriously and, in addition to his own merit, primarily has the benefit of his customer in mind.
With the right values to the happy seller
On the basis of the right values, the salesman's job is not only crisis-proof, it also makes you really happy. Why? The insight of the evangelist Luke that "give is more blessed than it takes", is thousands of years old and today is more than ever. Because as a seller to give pleasure to his customers and to make a real sense, not only is fun, it also makes you happy in the long term - both the customers and the seller.
In addition to the security of the future and the possibility to make sense, the seller has other attractive sites to offer: An employee in the execution of his profession is rarely as free as an employee in sales or in the field service. Always assuming the figures are right, the sales assistant is usually master of his own time and free in the planning of his activities. He decides for himself which and how many customers he or she visits when and where. This self-determination is an essential and lasting satisfaction factor for everyday business.
Happiness prosperity and abundance
Does a seller have to be unselfish to be happy? No, by no means. The opportunity to achieve prosperity and abundance is a high motivator and thus another essential factor of happiness.
Compared to other professions, the salesman offers above-average earning opportunities, of course mostly associated with a high time use. Here, too, the seller is the forge of his own fortune, because he usually also reaps the fruits of his own commitment and determines how rich the crop should be for him at the end of the year.
Being aware of your own happiness as a seller
The positive qualities of the sales profession are summarized: future security, freedom of design, meaningfulness and the opportunity to achieve lasting material and immaterial prosperity.
My Tip Nr 1: In front of the eyes
Whether you are already a salesman or thinking about becoming one, keep these lucky factors in mind and you have the best chance to be permanently happy in your dream job.
My tip no 2: Traumberufe?
Occupations that are often sold to you as a dream job are often not in reality. Therefore, beware of comparisons, because "Comparing is the end of happiness, and the beginning of dissatisfaction!", Knew the Danish philosopher Sören Kierkegaard, or simply put: "Just do what you want!"
