The Morning Meeting With Daniel Hardwick:
Adversity always creates opportunity. When you take a look at some of most successful people in history, almost every one of them had experienced trials, tribulations, defeat, and failure before they ultimately attained success. Among those people are: Michael Jordan, Abraham Lincoln, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, The Beatles, The Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Akio Morita, and Thomas Edison.
As salespeople, we need to be resilient and possess bounce-back ability. Life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we react to it. Failure and temporary defeat simply give us the opportunity to take a step back, reevaluate the task at hand, and come up with a new game plan to accomplish our goals.
Winston Churchill said it best, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
Never, ever give up. Stay the course and maintain your enthusiasm. You never fail, unless you quit.
Failure plus failure plus failure equals success.
Happy Selling! Until Next Time,
