I work with athletes but I also work with salespeople to help them increase sales.
When I was interviewed for my forthcoming book, “Success Simplified” with the great Stephen Covey, the interviewer asked, “Do you have experience in sales?”
I said, “No, but I do have the most difficult sales job–I try to sell people on themselves.”
You see, this blog is not just about mental toughness, it’s about believing in yourself.
Believing in your abilities.
Believing in your potential.
When you look at all the successful people in the world, they were not born to be great athletes, salespeople or musicians–they were trained to be.
Anything is possible with the right training.
What do you want to be great at? Who’s already doing it? Why aren’t you copying them?
I asked minor league baseball players, who do you want to be like? Mariano Rivera?
Are you doing what Mariano Rivera is doing right now? Are you training like him?
The answer is usually no.
You don’t have to wait to become successful to do what successful people do.
