A respected business mentor of mine once said, “You will always have people who tell you what can’t be done, what shouldn’t be done…that no one does here, etc. People will tell you that no one sells well here because, no one succeeds here and many other reasons why something doesn’t work. If you buy into that mentality, it will be absolutely true. If you want to succeed, don’t believe any of those myths….just work your butt off and prove them wrong.”
Almost 15 years later, I still hear people everyday telling me what cannot be done….The difference is that now, before their sentence is even complete, I’m already thinking of how it can be done.
Do you use “Yes Mentality”? Or do you follow the herd…..
Oh and that mentor? He did alright for himself….He retired at age 49, well “retired”…..
