Hoping to Have a Better Year in 2019
Are you hoping to have a better year in 2019 than you did in 2018? Of course you are! Nobody is hoping to have a worse year.
Well unfortunately even though everyone is hoping to have a better year the facts are:
49% of people will do worse this year
32% of people will do the same as last year
19% of people hoping to have a better year will actually have one.
Want to know why? Because things don’t get better simply by hoping things will only get better if you follow a better plan.
December is a time to get really focused on your 2019 goals and your business plan to get there.
Much of our selling life is like climbing a mountain. Each year we have a new mountain to climb to reach our goals and we struggle to meet productivity expectations each month. We have a choice, we can grumble about how unfair it is to be forced to start over from the bottom of the mountain or we can just get busy.
Sometimes, we stumble on the way up and lose ground.
We have a choice. We can stop at the end of the secured rope and grumble at what progress we have lost … or we can plant our stake and begin the climb again.
We can’t start from where we used to be, we must be realistic and start from where we are now or else we will spend the rest of our lives looking at where we used to be…. never reaching that height again, much less achieving our original goal.
Many will waste time worrying, “Can I reach my ultimate goal?”
That’s not the question, the question is, “Can I take the next step in the right direction?”
Focus on progress not perfection! Take one step at a time. Set your sights today on the next goal that will take you in the direction of your ultimate dream. And get your business plan to the next stage!
