We’ve All Got Problems

troublesOne of the things you and I have in common, I’m sure, are that we have problems.

The interesting thing about problems is, the problem isn’t the problem.

How we handle the problem, is the problem.

You Have a Choice

How we handle our problems is a choice. Consider these choices from below.

(Note: the column on the left will makes things worse. The column on the right will make things work.)

When confronted with a problem, you can either:

Worse                                                             Work

Be frustrated                                                   Be fascinated

Be disinterested                                              Be Interested

Be anxious                                                       Be excited

Be psyched out                                               Be psyched up

Be afraid                                                         Be brave

Be fidgety                                                        Be focused

Be beaten up                                                   Be up beat

Be unsure                                                        Be secure

Be lazy                                                             Be lively


Charles Swindoll said this about attitude:

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.

It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.

It will make or break a company, a church, a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

Sales Success

Surveys of the world’s most successful salespeople, across all companies, confirms that ATTITUDE is the foundation for sales success. Then comes skills and knowledge.

How’s your ‘tude, dude?

Is it time to give yourself a checkup from the neck up?
