I have always been a top performer at my company, bad month meant that I finished 15th in the company. However, the past month and a half has been a real grind and I have been struggling to find motivation. Now we are halfway through May and I am behind pacing for quota. Plenty of external reasons I could blame with return to normalcy, industry trends ect, (and everyone is struggling this month in the company).
Normally, if I was having a slower month I would put in some extra effort, grind away some after hours cold calls, skip lunches and do whatever it takes to make a good commision check. However, I just don't want to right now, might be the WFH is finally getting to me, just looking forward to my 2 week vacation in June, or just life in general. Overall, I can admit that my mental health has seriously taken a downward turn this quarter and I can't seem to get out of this funk.
What strategies (besides just focusing on $$$) have you all used for this to keep yourself motivated? Are people in other sales roles struggling right now too?
