Everyone in the sales & marketing industry hits motivational lows from time to time. It unfortunately comes with the territory. Perhaps no one has been returning your calls today or engaging with your content. Maybe you just lost a big deal or have hit writers block trying to meet a deadline for a new blog post.

It happens to ALL of us so fear not if this is currently your situation because you are assuredly not alone. This low you experience may last a day, a month or even a year at times. And there is no mistaking it, the feeling just down right sucks.

Luckily though inspiration is all around us in this brilliant age of information that we live in. On the other side of one simple mouse click could be a quote, video, picture or message that picks you back up again and puts a smile on your face. As some of you may have noticed (if we’re connected on LinkedIn) I love sharing inspirational quotes with me network. This is partly because it is a nice break from the constant Social Selling content that I post out and also partly because I hope that maybe, just maybe, someone out there who is experiencing one of these low points happens upon my post and it brightens their day a little bit.
