Discipline, consistency, dealing with fear, accountability, mindset—these are all required traits to be successful in sales.

Turns out those are the same traits required for success as an endurance athlete as well.

Scott Sambucci came on the podcast to talk about how an endurance mindset can make us more successful in sales.

Scott’s become a good friend in the past year, and I was excited to pick his brain.

The dude runs ultra-marathons (80+ mile races).

And for fun on his birthday a few weeks ago, he ran 28 miles.

Scott shares what it takes to stay disciplined and consistent.

Have you run a distance race before?

What did you learn from that experience that you’ve applied to your sales career?
