Everyone Works on Commission

Most sales people receive some portion of their remuneration based on the success of their sales effort. For some, they operate on 100% commission. And of course this is a powerful incentive to improve. Their connection to sales is obvious.

What about other people in your organisation? The receptionist. The delivery driver. The accounts clerk. In a small business, pretty much everyone will talk to your customers. But they probably don’t consider themselves in sales.

Whether they like it or not, they are in sales. And they are on commission too. After all, if sales go down dramatically, or they cause you to lose an important customer, their whole pay packet (and job) is at risk.

Do your non-sales staff see the connection between what they do and sales? Every customer contact in your business with anyone in it is a moment of truth for your business. Does everyone in your business know that they are in sales, and that everyone in your business Works on Commission?

So why not make even some small portion of their package visibly dependent on sales so that every time they answer the phone, they KNOW they are Working on Commission.

Hi again


The following is a statement from a serious money making person - Jon
It says it all. Take note and learn.
My footnote at the end


I've been ranting and raving lately about the
importance of your wealth DNA.

Why is it such a big deal?

I bump into so many individuals, especially at
seminars and when I get to talk to them, it's
obvious to me that no matter how specific you
layout a strategy, you just know they're never
going to be successful.

How do I know?

It's in the way they speak and the language they

They generally fall into 3 categories. You might
think that this bit doesn't relate to you, but
let's see.

The first question that I ask them is, what is
that has stopped you in creating more success in
your life so far?

The overwhelming answer is that they start
talking about events or other individuals who
have somehow controlled their destiny.

They're playing what I call the "blame-game".

They'll blame the economy, the government, the
stock market, their broker, a real estate agent,
a former business partner, their ex-wife, you
get the drift...

You'll never become wealthy if you fall into
this category.

You have to take 100% responsibility of where
you are at right now. You'll never be able to
move forward if you don't accept this.

Here's an interesting story. I once told this to
someone, (I wont mention who) and they
aggressively came back at me with...

"So if I'm walking down the street and a brick
falls on my head, it's my fault?"

No, it's not your fault... But how you respond
to the event is your choice.

Let me ask you this, do you have any friends or
family that have been on workcover for 5 years,
waiting for payout?

Now don't get me wrong, of course injuries
happen, but your attitude to how you respond to
events that seem challenging at the time is so
important when you're building a foundation for

The next attitude of mediocrity is

If you're not blaming, you are usually
justifying your situation in some shape or form.

I've had people say to me, "Money is not really
important to me."

Guess what... These guys are usually broke.

Another way of justifying their lack of money
position, they generally use dumb comparisons
like, "Money is not as important as love" or
"Money is not as important as your health."

Isn't that dumb? It's like you can only have one
or the other. I know you can have both or all

The next dumb attitude is complaining.

In fact, this is the worst thing you can do,
guaranteed to keep you broke, and it gets even
worse... Your health will suffer as well.

I'm a big believer in what you focus on expands.
Read that again... It's THAT powerful.

When you're whining, moaning and complaining,
the only likely outcome is that you're going to
get more of the same crap that you're
complaining about.

When you're complaining, you become a living,
breathing crap-magnet.

Have you ever met a rich person who bitches and
moans all day long.


Here's some homework for you that could
potentially give you some instant results in
your life.

Are you suffering from a little bit or a lot of
the above "wealth-stealing" principles?

You might say to me that, nup, you don't do any
of the above.

Here's a challenge for you...

For the next 7 days, try this. Don't blame,
justify or complain... No matter what.

Look at every experience and say to yourself,

"Mmmm.... What have I done to create this?"

"What's my positive response? If at all..."

"What can I learn from this situation that will
be useful to me?"

See how you go... I bet you it's not going to be
easy. But if you take up the challenge, you're
going to be amazed at the insights and
transformations that will start to appear.

...And remember, it's nothing more than taking
100% responsibility of your own life.

Regards - Jon

Some people have not got a life.
They are so busy complaining that life passes them by
Scared to take risks and explore opportunities
or better still create opportunities.
They are always victims..HA-HA-HA
Get a grip and crush that mentality or
forever walk in someone elses shadow
