Think about your sales history. How often do you reach a goal, only to immediately start thinking of your NEXT goal? Do you take time to appreciate and celebrate each achievement, or are you already on to your next client? When you complete a task, do you look back and see all the things you could have, should have, done better or faster? Are you your own worst critic? Do you tend to focus on what you do wrong instead of what you do well?
I read in the Washington Post, in an article by Kathleen Parker, that Steve Job’s last words were supposedly, “Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.” Imagine doing this each day and not just at the end of your life.
On this Thanksgiving Day in the United States, and each day hereafter, I hope you’ll take time to think about your achievements and say, “Oh wow, Oh wow, Oh wow.”
P.S. Happy Thanksgiving! I’m grateful for the opportunity to share these thoughts and words with you.
