Grab those bootstraps
The most common email I get is from Sales people looking for that “magic” trick or phrase. They ask me for word tracks, catch phrases and closing techniques all with the same goal in mind.
A quick fix
But in truth there simply is no “Quick fix” in the world of professional selling.
It takes work to build success, and work to sustain success.
When I was young my Mom and Dad used to tell me
” Donnie if you are not succeeding, find your boot straps and pull your self up ”
Now I must confess that I wasn’t exactly sure what a boot strap was, but I got the message that would stay with me for my lifetime;
My success or failure is ultimately in my control.
Hard work and focused attention brings success, and these I would suppose are my “boot straps.”
Let me share a great quote with you
Elbert Green Hubbard
When on the brink of complete discouragement, success is discerning that… the line between failure and success is so fine that often a single extra effort is all that is needed to bring victory out of defeat
Find those boot straps, and take action !!
