Advice: "I'm in a slump and have been missing my quota, how do I get back on track?"
The Quota Claimed The Quota

I'm an inside rep in my fifth year in sales and really struggling lately. Basically, I'm in a three month slump, which feels like it's turning into a long-term depression. I haven't even hit my quota for the last two months. My sales manager was understanding but she's starting to get on me lately, and if I don't hit my goal this month, she'll probably put me on a PIP.

What makes this even worse is the fact that it feels like everyone out there is making a killing while I'm at the lowest point in my career. I like my employer, and they've been pretty good to me, but I know they can't keep me on if I can't turn it around.

Any advice for getting out of a slump? For what it's worth, this all started right around the time I bought my first house at the end of last year. I was busy with moving in and everything, so work suffered and it hasn't gotten back on track. Looking forward to your response.
