Hey Team!

Thursday.... 

Moving right along here.....

Time just keeps on buzzing by... make sure you don't let it pass you by...

A few days ago I was speaking to a group of sales professionals.... 

It is April... the start of baseball season.. so I had to talk baseball with them...

In the sport of baseball, if you succeed at the professional level, getting a hit 3 out of 10 times, you are considered an All-Star... a Hall of Famer if you can do it consistently... year over year.... AND...

As a result of  your consistent performance, getting a hit 3 out of every 10 at-bats, you will be paid handsomely, as we have seen with players lately like Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, and Mike Trout...

But here is the thing... business works the same way....

Life works the same way....

It just matters what you focus on....

Too many people that I run into are more focused on the 7- times they did not get a hit... than the 3- times they got a hit.....

If you are focused on 7... you are focused on the negative...

7 keeps you in a negative, failure oriented place and state....

If you focus on 3... you are leaning toward the positive.. you are focused on what can actually make you an All-Star...

You see, if you are like the majority, you focus on 7 because the innate pattern of thought for most is sympathy.. sympathy for the self.. and what the self is not doing right, not achieving, not having enough of....

When in fact, as we go through our days and weeks.. there are so many HITS we are GETTING....

The question is: Are we focusing on them and using them as fuel and momentum?

So many people would rather focus on the hits they are TAKING...and then claim to use their NEGATIVES as fuel for positives....

And that my friends... can work... but it is exhausting...

It will leave you feeling bankrupt and depleted...

And that is not going to help you get on the field everyday and play at a high level for a long time....

So when you feel down and out.. realize this: You are probably focused on 7 rather than 3.....

Chase Greatness...

Let's GO.
