Selling is a lot like driving. People have beliefs that shape their behavior. Some of those beliefs are false and take them off road.
What are beliefs? Beliefs are what we know to be true. When people have false beliefs, it prevents them from succeeding. There are two types of beliefs; true beliefs and false beliefs.
During the next few sessions, we will talk about several beliefs that can take you off road -- and how to adopt successful beliefs, true beliefs that will help you succeed.
When people drive and text, they believe that they won’t go off road.
Is that true or false? False!
When people text while driving it increases the risk of going off road, having an accident or even going in the ditch. The same applies for selling.
The traffic app tries its hand at carpooling.
A more literal ride-sharing service than taxi alternatives such as Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc., Waze Carpool lets drivers schedule passenger pickups along their planned routes in exchange for a few bucks worth of gas money from riders, or even to just speed up their commutes with access to the carpool lane.
Riders can book at the last minute or reserve in advance. To discourage cancellations, rider and driver profiles share personal information that the users have agreed to supply from Facebook or LinkedIn.
The most recent people targeted for replacement by robots?
Car drivers—one of the most common occupations around the world. Automotive players face a self-driving-car disruption driven largely by the tech industry, and the associated buzz has many consumers expecting their next cars to be fully autonomous.
But a close examination of the technologies required to achieve advanced levels of autonomous driving suggests a significantly longer timeline; such vehicles are perhaps five to ten years away.

The Holy Grail of traffic safety is that someday self-driving vehicles will make traffic accidents a thing of the past.
But as increments of that technology are introduced, drivers must be thoroughly trained in their limitations or else run the risk of depending on them for more than the equipment can deliver and of being involved in crashes they thought couldn’t happen.
Case in point: a senior vice president at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) warned the audience at a global symposium on automated vehicles in Princeton, New Jersey, last week that the currently most successful type of crash avoidance system can’t prevent all kinds of crashes.
One of the biggest trends in global fleets remains the same as over a decade ago: continually working to control spend and maximize efficiency.
Ben Lieberman, whose son was killed in a crash involving a distracted driver six years ago, wants to find a way to stop drivers from texting and driving before other teens are killed.
He has given talks at schools. He has attended law enforcement conferences. He has seen people throw up their hands over the lack of a reliable field test to determine for sure whether a driver in a crash had been texting around the time of impact.
“I kept hearing over and over again, there’s no such thing as a Breathalyzer for distracted driving,” Lieberman said. “So I asked why not?”
