Donald Moine’s Article “Going For The Gold In The Selling Game”. In the business world, sales superstars attract similar attention. Some companies pay their top salespeople more than they do their presidents. Sales, perhaps more than any other profession, is a psychological laboratory for testing human intelligence, persistence, persuasiveness and resilience: the ability to deal with rejection on a daily basis. What motivates the best salespeople? There are other ways to make a lot of money. Why do they choose a calling in which rejection is a daily fact of life even for the best? Profiles done on several thousand top producers point to seven motives that drive them are discussed in the article.
Dr. Donald Moine, an international sales psychologist who has closely studied the careers of high achievers including CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and past presidents of the United States, observes, “Drive is one of the most transparent factors in the careers of ultrasuccessful individuals. But the drive itself will not yield productive results unless the energy is there to actualize it. One of the most overlooked factors in the success of Donald Trump is that he possesses a high level of energy that he can focus on any task at hand to overcome obstacles, wear down opponents and persist until he has achieved his desired goals.”
