How Robin Williams’ Death Instantly Affects Sales Worldwide

At 63, Robin Williams was found dead at his home.

Apparently, he committed suicide. It’s sad. This news of the beloved actor shocked everyone worldwide. But, his death affected sales everywhere too. For those who did not realize it, it can be dangerous.

Here’s how…

Life Is Short, So Is Your Sales…

With just a small dose of poison, suffocation or stab, you life might easily end right in front of your eyes.

In sales, with just a small mistake, competitors sabotaging you or even accidentally offending your customer, your sales will end as well. Maybe not all, but it will definitely be affected. With customers moving over to your competitors or swearing never to deal with you again… it’s a killer.

Fragile Minds…

Thoughts drive you to action. In Robin Williams’ case, he was most likely battling depression and eventually he couldn’t handle it.

When sales people are demotivated, it affects them. Worse still, if nothing is done, it’ll get worse and sales will be affected. A demotivated sales person’s symptoms are:

  • lack in confidence
  • fear of meeting people
  • always giving excuses
  • spreading negative auras to colleagues
  • thinking that management is crazy 
  • horrible sales performance
  • and many more…

However, a fully motivated sales person will be one of your greatest assets in your company. He will normally hit targets, encouraging the team to fight on and committed to do more and more sales. It will always be “I CAN DO IT, I WILL ACHIEVE IT!”

Most of the time, a motivated sales person will be a top performer in that company.
