How to Own Your  Mistakes #504

So, you like being right? But what about when you’re wrong? Nobody likes being called out for making a mistake or screwing up. And let me tell you, it’s even worse when you have to apologize for your mistake or, worse yet, your company’s mistake. It’s like going to the dentist for a root canal. Unfortunately, once in a while, this situation pops up and it’s extremely uncomfortable for the sales professional. It’s not the end of the world. You just have to own up to it and move on. That’s what separates the men from the boys. Or the women from the girls. Or the sales professionals from the amateurs. You get the idea. Look, if you’ve made a mistake, don’t worry. Just apologize, learn from it, and move on. It’s not rocket science. It’s just common sense. That’s why we’re talking about it today. How to own your mistakes.
