Achieve Victory with Boldness

In a survey to salespeople, I asked for a definition of boldness without looking anything up.

In no time at all I was swamped with responses; here are several of the answers I received:

  • Courage to go beyond and push further than you think you’re even capable.
  • The ability to be the best version of your true self, without regret.
  • A determination to act to achieve the best possible outcome without fear or doubt.
  • Moving forward with conviction in the face of everyone retreating.
  • The courage to do what others won’t.
  • Stepping up when others are frozen in fear.
  • Being consciously aggressive in what you believe to be correct.
  • Taking a chance and doing something you believe is right, no matter what the outcome.
  • Having enough confidence to take action in the moment.
  • The willingness to act on, speak about or address something about which you are passionate, even if it is out of your comfort zone.
  • Jumping right in front of what may be fearful and saying ‘Bring it on!’

Here is what I see as a trend in those responses: The very thought of boldness seems to stir a passion in people, especially salespeople.

They believe that boldness is a good and beneficial thing, even though it may come at a cost.

Despite any negativity that may have been expressed in those responses, the common outcome is victory — victory through boldness.

If you change your mindset, you will change your world.
