  • We all have down days. You can feel down, just don’t stay down.
  • Down days weigh you down.
  • What starts off as a moment of failing becomes a monument of failure & for the rest of your life, you you point to your monument saying, “That’s why I couldn’t be successful.” (Or you can point to the moment and say that’s why I was successful 😉)
  • When you are down you have a critical choice to make: Blame or Analyze.
  • Blame: You can blame the economy and others or you can …
  • Analyze: As painful as the loss is, instead of blaming, analyze your part. This takes extreme ownership. (Gotta keep it real here) Honestly, what role did you play in the blow up.
  • Be down, just don’t let it take you out.
  • Down days are wake up calls. Life’s trying to wake you up & kick you out of your comfort zone.
  • Maybe you’re way (I mean way) off track. Seeing how far you’ve slipped can be overwhelming. You’re 70 lbs overweight; fired & have zero new-world skills, or been out of school for a decade.
  • Where do you start?
  • (Hint/Answer) You start at start.
  • Don’t waste days, months, or another year talking about how far off track you are. (Who cares & stop counting)
  • Instead start and begin mitigating the loss.
  • Do you want to win or succeed today? Of course you’d say, “I want to win.”
  • Think again.
  • I want you to succeed.
  • Because a win has one result…one outcome vs to succeed has multiple scenarios & in those scenarios are mixed with wins, losses, & tons of experiences that you can apply moving forward.
  • I can’t always win. But I can always succeed. (Now that’s Tweetable)
  • Anyhew this is the short version. Want more? Click the links & connect with me and say Hi.
  • Remember the greatest sale you’ll ever make is to sell you on you. Because you’re more than enough.
  • Stay amazing. Stay in The Sales Life.
