Lessons from the doctor on learning sales

How do you learn?
Learning sales is easy.
Understanding it can be difficult.
That being said, when we know and understand how people learn, we can use that knowledge to our advantage.
So a serious question from a sales doctor.
How do you learn best?
 
You see each of us as individuals learns information (both old and new) differently.
 
We could talk all day about levels of intellect or IQ.
Do they really matter, are they crucial to our success?
 
There is a multitude of tests we can all run to define our individual levels of “knowledge” and “genius”.
My mentor states quite clearly (and this is something that I firmly believe in) that you don’t have to be exceptional to be exceptional.
Let me say that again:
You don’t have to be exceptional to be exceptional.
Sounds crazy right?
But imagine, are all the successful people in the world truly exceptional? What sets them apart.
More:
Then, of course, there is our own cognitive bias to take into account.
Blah blah blah.
For now, let’s keep it simple shall we?
First, let me ask you this.
 
Is there a difference between being clever and being wise.
In my not so humble opinion, of course, there is.
How do you define yourself (if you define yourself at all that is)?
Wise or clever.
What would you rather be?
Any ideas.
Take some time to think about it.
But the main question you need to ask yourself is how do we learn?
In fact, let me rephrase that.
How do we learn best?
See there is knowledge to be found in books, through mentors or coaches, by watching films and documentaries.
There are so many ways to learn, that they can blur into a haze of over information.
But that is still not understanding how we learn best.
Are you practical?
Do you need to be shown how to do things or are you best off being told.
How about just hearing instructions?
Can you then implement them faultlessly?
Like with most things we always start with self, so how do you approach learning sales?
