When you decide to go after the dream that is in your heart and to become what you see in your mind, there will be resistance, and failure in your future. Count on it. The key is to be able to get up after being knocked down and keep pressing on.
Too many people never reach their goal because they give up after the first time they fall.
In sales, those who close the most deals, never give up after the first “No” Those who do give up after the first “No” never have the highest closing ratios.
You must be persistent to be successful but your persistence must be fed by passion. Real passion is a desire that is stronger than death. In short, you’ve got to WANT it in order to hang in there long enough to get it.
Every day that you wake up, is an opportunity to move closer to your goal. Your passion is your power, your fuel, and the higher the octane of your passion, the faster and further you’ll go.
