It is widely held by spiritual masters, scientists, and many highly successful individuals that affirmations, or positive self-talk, are an invaluable tool to visualize and achieve success in any aspect of life. Affirmations declare what you want to be true as if it were already true and are stated in the present tense, first-person. Affirmations, when repeated and listened to regularly and posted around the home, flood your brain and rewire your thoughts to push beyond limiting beliefs and on to claim your good.
Cold calling is generally viewed as the hardest part of sales and the most effective way to gain new customers. I looked around and found a variety of affirmations for success in general as well as affirmations for success in sales, however, I did not find affirmations geared specifically for what we do, cold calling. Cold calling is at the very front end of sales. Therefore, cold calling kick starts sales, which in turn kick start the wheels of commerce. The profession of sales is not only the bedrock of free enterprise, it is the soul of free enterprise.
These affirmations are intended to support individuals involved with and who play a role in the front end of sa
les in the field of cold calling. These affirmations are intended to support and celebrate the expertise and vital role of cold calling within the big picture of business and our economy as rainmakers and stimulators of commerce.
These affirmations relate specifically to the field of cold calling and apply regardless of whether you are working from your home office like us, or from an office building, working for a virtual call center like ours, or working in a sales role directly for a company.
The best affirmations are the ones that resonate most with the individual. Print out your favorites or all of them and forward them to your friends or co-workers who have careers involving cold calling.

A famous Henry Ford quote, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right,” emphasizes how much attitude determines success or failure. Our viewpoints and beliefs lead us in everything we do. Cold calling has always been difficult, and today, in order to be successful, a greater level of skill is required than in the past.
Affirmations are not a substitute for doing the hard work of acquiring, honing or upgrading necessary skills required to be successful. During the process of building skills, affirmations are simple to use to motivate yourself and can quash any negative self-talk.
One of the skills required to be successful in cold calling is attitude. When people have the right attitude, they are motivated and more open to learning new technical skills. With the right attitude, new skills can be mastered more quickly. Attitude is everything, the mothership of all other skills. Attitudes can be learned, and for that reason, affirmations are useful tools and can bring immediate rewards. Affirmations are not only for new people or individuals who are changing careers. Affirmations work for anyone at any level and help propel people to whatever that next level is for them.
