Why You Should Almost Become A Monomaniac
If you’re unaware of what Momomaniac means then don’t fret, I didn’t until a few years ago. Now that I know I have made it my mission, in whatever do, to become a monomaniac in that area. Well almost a monomaniac, let me explain.
A monomaniac can be described as
- a person who is extremely interested in one thing, often to such a degree that they are mentally ill
Now you get why I used the term almost!
But the ideology makes sense. My goal, in whatever I do, is to almost become a monomaniac. I’ve done this in sales and you should too.
I strive to make the topic my mission, to be so obsessed that I obtain a level of mastery that the mere 1% attain.
If you’re serious about sales, if you want to become a sales icon, the best sales person in your business or industry then you should have the same desire…to become a monomaniac.
Almost every success story of any individual will show signs of being a monomaniac. Whether we are talking about entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs, or inventors like Thomas Edison or scientists like Sir Isaac Newton.
They are all
- Willing to overcome any adversity
- Strong willed
- Goal orientated
- Most of all they treat the topic as their calling and will not settle for anything less than its mastery
The best example I can give on monomaniac tendencies in recent times which many people could see or relate too would be the UFC fighter Connor McGregor. Whenever I begin to lose sight of my goal, or feel my work rate slack of or anything of that nature, that is when I think of his famous quote:
“There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equals as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time.”
Strive to become almost a monomaniac in whatever you do. Make the subject your obsession whether that’s sales, your business, management, leadership etc.
Do that and you’ll obtain the desired level of mastery that the top 1% reach.
