This last couple of weeks have been good for me on several levels. Vacation gave me some time to rest and evaluate where I am in relation to my goals. I was also able to evaluate my effort level. I had fallen in a bit of a rut and I needed a little kick in the seat to get inspired. I’m not saying I had become lazy because I work diligently.
The truth is my effort was not at the level required to get me to my goals; and I have huge goals. I have set my sights on being one of the top sales professionals in my company and my efforts were not reflecting “top of the list” effort. So from here on out that changes.
I believe that people underestimate themselves and I see it every day in people’s work ethic. Most people demonstrate a “good enough” attitude and effort. That is why there are so few at the top and so many closer to the bottom.
I am not a bottom-feeder.
