The Salesperson’s Guide to Answering a Higher Calling

Sales is more than a profession; it’s a calling. It’s a path that requires not just skill and strategy but also a deep understanding of human nature, empathy, and integrity. For those who see sales as a mere job, the journey can be taxing and unfulfilling. But for those who recognize the higher calling in sales, the path becomes transformative.

The Connection Between Sales and Service

The essence of sales is service. It’s about recognizing the inherent value in others and seeking to enhance their lives through what you offer. This perspective shifts the focus from self-interest to self-giving, from what we gain to what we give. It aligns with the teachings of Jesus, who demonstrated a life of selfless service.

In the book “The Master Salesman: Jesus and the Art of Service,” this connection between sales and service is explored in depth. The principles of Introducing, Discovering, Evaluating, Adapting, and Serving are not just methods for selling; they are pathways to a fulfilling life.

Answering the Higher Calling

Answering a higher calling in sales means recognizing that your role is not just about closing deals but about building relationships. It’s about seeing the potential for positive change and acting on it. It’s about finding joy in the act of giving, in the connections we build, and in the positive impact we can make in the lives of others.

This approach to sales is not just beneficial for business; it’s fulfilling on a personal level. It reflects a commitment to the well-being and success of others. It’s a way of living that can enrich personal relationships, enhance community engagement, and contribute to a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
