30 Motivational Sales Quotes to Inspire Success

Here are 30 motivational sales quotes to keep your head up and power through any rejections.

But first, what is it that separates good salespeople from great salespeople?

Salespeople have one of the hardest jobs in the world to do. They deal with rejection on a daily basis. Making a sale comes down to powering through call after call, email after email, and ‘no’ after ‘no’.

But, the greatest salespeople, thinkers, and leaders have also dealt with rejection, fear and hard times. They stepped out of their comfort zones and took a chance, succeeding in the face of failure.
