I’m seeing this painful cycle happen more and more in sales.
High performer >> to months struggling >> to breaking point >> to finally asking for help.
Why do we wait so long to ask for help?
In my experience it’s because sales is filled with stressors that are 4s, 5s and 6s.
If losing a best friend in a car crash is a 10/10…
Then missing your first sales target feels like a 5/10.
Stressors like missing target, being overlooked for a promotion, losing a deal we were expecting to close; they don’t feel like a big deal in comparison.
We try to shake them off.
Try to push them away.
Miss their tiny impact.
We think we’re fine.
We underestimate the effect these micro-stressors are having on our mental health, well-being and mental performance each day.
But very slowly over time they start to add up:
3 + 4 + 5 + 3 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 2 + 4.
Slowly building momentum behind the scenes in our subconscious.
We think we’re fine, until we’re not.
Project Mamba aims to fill that gap between struggling and breaking point. No expensive price tag or intensive multi-week cohort program.
Simply a community of sellers and leaders who are putting their mental health and mental performance first.
Built on a strong foundation of mental performance tools and strategies, we meet virtually twice a week to talk about the toughest parts of sales.
To get a mental tune-up.
And handle the 3s, 4s, 5s, and 6s before they add up to become a much bigger problem.
