Sales Joke of the Day (archives) The Rescue

A rescue team finds a crashed airplane.  The lone survivor, a salesman, is chewing on bone, with a huge pile of human bones next to him.  The rescuers are shocked.

The salesman says, "You can't judge me for this!  I had to survive!"

The leader of the rescue team says, "Come on man!  Your plane only went down yesterday.

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that what drives them to succeed that never ending hunger to succeed.  Remember to be successful at sales you need to be an apex predator.  It's competitive in sales, like never before.   It's not "Hunger Games."  It's eat or be eaten!

"Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way."   -  Les Brown
