Trust In The Process / Trust The Process – What Does It Mean?

 

 

Trust in the process or trust the process can mean different things to different people, and it comes down to your personal views, beliefs, values, and experiences.

 

As I’m a Business and Sales Trainer/ Coach, I’ll be unpacking it in a way for how I describe and make sense of it in a business sense, and then give you some pointers about how it’s helped my life – and may help and guide yours too.

 

I’ll be breaking it down into several categories. These are:

 

  • Your goals
  • Having a strategic plan to action your goals
  • Using a map to get there, by utilizing a sales process
  • Holding yourself accountable to achieve it

 

 

Trust In The Process / Trust The Process With Goal Setting

 

 

A process is a step by step system to get you from point A to point B.

 

In order to ensure you get from one point to the other, you need to be certain and feel secure about getting there; and that you could in fact get there if you follow the system.

 

This means that once you have the system you trust that it’ll get you there.

 

Hence, the term or quote Trust In The Process / Trust The Process.

 

Before you can set yourself aside a process, you’ll need to get clarity on what it is in fact you want to achieve.

 

A way in which you can do this, is by goal setting correctly.

 

When goal setting, we recommend using SMART Goals:

 

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable/ Actionable
  • Relevant
  • Time Bound

 

Once you have your goals in place, it’ll give you an opportunity to look at how you can make those goals happen.

 

 

Having A Strategic Plan

 

 

Once you have your goals set, the next step is outlining how to get there. No matter what your personal circumstances are, the chances are highly likely that you’ll need to sell something to make your goals happen.

 

Are you going to sell your time for money in a job?

 

Perhaps you’ll set up a store and sell a product or service to meet your goals?

 

Another way – is of course learning valuable skills in which you can then sell at a high-ticket rate.

 

When setting up your strategic plans, there are generally two key areas that you’ll need to focus your attention too.

 

These are sales strategy plans, and a marketing strategy plan.

 

Once you have your plan in place; meaning you have a road-map to follow, you’ll feel more certain to trust in the process / trust the process.
