Perhaps you fell just a tad short of your sales goal for the month. You can grump about it. You can let the “Little Voice” inside call you nasty names, beat yourself up, drive yourself crazy. You can drown your sorrows in a few extra shots of whiskey or pints of beer.
Or, you can celebrate that you did better than the month before. You can celebrate that you picked up the phone, knocked on the doors, and stayed on track with the behaviors that, faithfully practiced, bring success.
Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, repeatedly said that when you are actively working toward a goal, there are no failures—there are only varying degrees of success.
He also said “Make Good, Make Room, But Don’t Make Excuses.”
Just for Today:
Consider the day. What went “your way”? What didn’t? How did you treat yourself in each instance? What will you do differently tomorrow?
