Attract The Right Job Or Clientele:

The news about the Pandemic and California ablaze has me asking, are problems getting you down? It must be downright scary residing in areas where tornadoes frequently hit and flames destroy acres.  The devastation leaves little to compare.  These down days can feel like we are heading for round two of the ten plagues.  Those who are well and out of harms’ way are almost obligated to think positively. We are the fortunate ones. 

Many are saying they continue to lose focus with all the distractions.  But the lack of attention becomes the main excuse and will only make things worse.  Our business depends on a positive mindset for us to focus on our goals. 

So how can any of us move away from problems getting you down? As with any goal, we need to set time aside first to recognize what is stopping our progress.  Next, we are to consider revising our course of action seriously.  Last, we are to prioritize all the possible steps to ensure we arrive at the destination we desire. But this is merely the beginning.

My Story

Corporate sales taught me how to deal with poor outcomes and surprise endings.  Out of every such experience comes the silver lining.  The benefits are in knowing:

  1. What to avoid in the future
  2. That which will not change
  3. Recognize our professional development progress

Many evenings I would have a conversation with myself.  I would ask myself, why are problems getting you down? And then, an analysis through questions and answers would get me back on track.

The song lyrics to “I Wanna Be Somebody,” by W.A.S.P. was frequently in mind:

“Oh, you just got to be
Up high where the whole world’s watchin me
Cause I, I got the guts to be somebody……to cry out
I wanna be somebody,
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too.”

“A positive mindset plus the motivation to continue are essential for finding success.

Even when anger took hold, I would never allow someone else to decide for me to quit.  Quitting is only on my terms, and my definition is quite different.  For me, leaving became the way forward to advance my career.  I only went when something bigger and better was in front of me. And if a better situation isn’t in front of me, I realize the learning ahead to make it appear.  To this day, I continue doing the same.

For more insight, please take a few minutes to hear a portion of my unusual life-changing story. Hopefully, you will gain motivation to move past the problems getting you down.
