The last three days of last week had been very eventful for us, ERTC team, as we conducted our much-awaited Closing the Sales Mastery Intensive Training. With 30 participants from the sales industry who have varying lengths and kinds of experience joining us, the training became a lot more fun and eye-opening for us as well.
Throughout the duration of the training, we were allowed to see slices of our participants’ individual life – their strengths and weaknesses, their struggles and their hopes. With it, we feel grateful for despite the fact that the training is for them, we got the opportunity to learn from them as well.
When I look back on those three intensive days, I am reminded of three important lessons I learned or relearned.
First, there is no such thing as too early or too late in life when a person wants to improve themselves. Wanting to develop oneself can keep a person going and thriving. When we stop learning and growing, it is like we are just waiting for our end and not living life as we should.
The second thing I got reminded of is that other people’s help and support can only work when we help ourselves first. The change we want to see in our lives should come from our free will – our decision to take action.
Lastly, I had been reminded that the best way for us to not lose ourselves in the quest for success is to have a great foundation – that we do what we do not only for ourselves but to serve other people as well.
We saw how our valued clients did their best to apply all the lessons we shared with them during the three-day training. We saw how they rose up to the challenge of going out of their comfort zones. We witnessed them break through different barriers that hold them from reaching new levels. We heard them declare their eagerness to meet the better versions of themselves.
Indeed, we saw them transform in those three days but we can’t deny the fact that they have gifted us with valuable lessons that would help us become better versions of ourselves as well. What an amazing experience it had been!
