Action Principles

Pick one to do this week:

  1. Just ask. When you see an opportunity, don’t be afraid to ask for it. The worst they can say is “no.” ACTION: Ask for the opportunity to do something that will take you closer to your goal.
  2. Help others make a decision. Selling is helping. You’re helping someone make a decision because you care about them. ACTION: Ask yourself how you can help someone rather than focusing on what you can get from them.
  3. Turn adversity into growth. Remember that a failure is actually an opportunity for growth if you learn from it. ACTION: Focus on what you’ve learned when something doesn’t work out.
  4. Know your vision. A vision guides you in the right direction. ACTION: Create a vision for your life.
