Trying to keep me down?

There are some that have been trying to keep me down. Changing the rules of the game in the middle, putting up road blocks and generally telling me it can't be done.

Good luck. Keep changing the rules, try and block me, I WILL GET IT DONE!

In sales, time and time again I have heard that you can't win that bid, get that account or close that deal. Then what happens, I see that bid won, account closed and the deal won. As my previous two posts suggest, the positive attitude will win over.

So tomorrow starts the next chapter. Put on the Survivor music (From Rocky). Don't look in your rear view mirror, I am already in front of you. You better start planning the road blocks and find the rule changes. I have already overcome your latest attempt.

A little more Positive!

I have to add onto yesterdays post.

The news is almost all negative. The weather is the coldest/hottest, windy, dry, wet, etc. The economy is down, gas is up. Politicians are bad...

Read the paper, watch the news and see news magazines. All have mostly negative news...

I am not suggesting not staying up to date with current events. But you cant let most of this get to you. Lets face it, you cannot change most of these things. Focus on the things you can change and execute!

Positive attitude.

Have you ever met a truly successful business person that had a bad attitude? I haven't. Think about some of the most successful people you know. All I know are very positive people. In my life this is without exception!

I was thinking about my peer group HTG3. Every one of the group has a positive outlook. Every one of them leads or owns a business!

Now sure, we all have days that are down and it can effect us. It is how you recover that can make the difference.

Next time you lose your positive attitude, take the afternoon off and refocus your attitude. Come back and look at the problems and I think you will find they are not as bad as they originally looked!
