The mind is an incredibly powerful thing. Get it focused on a specific goal or aim and there are virtually no limits to what you can achieve. Fail to get your mind in gear, on the other hand, and hitting any sort of target can feel impossible.
In business, and telemarketing in particular, harnessing the power of the mind can produce real results. Even if you don’t realise it at the time, if your mind is focused on your goal, your body will respond. This can make you sound more confident and also give you the energy you need to complete the task at hand. As a result, you’re able to generate the leads your business needs to succeed.
The mind body link
Although it has been considered true for a number of years, it’s only relatively recently that scientific research has been used to confirm the connection between mind and body. The results of this research have been fascinating. As @LiveScience says:
“The researchers found links between the brain’s cerebral cortex — where many types of higher-level thinking take place, including decision-making and memory — and the inner part of the adrenal glands, called the adrenal medulla.”
The adrenal medulla region releases key hormones involved in the body’s reaction to physical and emotional stress. This means that by controlling your mind, you can directly influence how your body responds to stress and other difficult situations. This could be incredibly useful in the world of business.
Before we can achieve a goal, we have to believe in it. Visualising the outcome you want from a telemarketing call, or a meeting with a potential customer, should kick your mind into gear and encourage your body to respond accordingly. The more you can ‘see’ the result you want, the more your mind and your body will be able to work together to achieve your goals.
However, it’s important to remember that visualisation alone won’t make your business goals a reality. As much as we’d all like it to be true, just thinking about something doesn’t make it happen. Instead, you can utilise the mind body link to improve your performance and help you to go that extra mile when talking to potential customers.
When setting lead generation goals, it’s important to be ambitious but realistic. Although your mind is capable of impressive things, the last thing you want to do is to knock your new found confidence by coming in well under your target. Instead, decide how many leads you want to generate, visualise the success you’re going to have and keep this in mind every time you pick up the phone.
By engaging both your mind and body when making telemarketing calls, you can radically improve your chances of success and make your marketing campaigns more powerful and more effective.
