A lot of time when we are doing something to reach your goal, we have a certain idea or an expectation of what is the final outcome. When we are selling, we imagine that people will buy things from us, when we are working hard, we imagine the promotion coming soon, when we are studying, we imagine that we have the good grades. Creating a mental picture is good as it shows our enthusiasm and believe in ourselves to achieve it.
However, what crushes those expectation is when we give up too soon. A business man was working so hard for his business and yet nothing is profiting, therefore, closes the business, not knowing the next day a big client may show up. The key here is to move on no matter what, those dreams and expectation are much closer than you think.
When you are ready to quit, you are closer than you think.Bob Parsons
Back when I was doing sales for a company. I was cold calling agents after agents for sales. Over 100 cold calls, over a month without any sales, I almost decided to quit. But I tried just one last call, and to my surprise, the agent willing to give me the sale. With that 1 sale for that month, I manage to hit my target of 3 months. Since that moment on, it taught me something, after many rejections, that one special sale was a lot closer than I imagined.
Always remember, in whatever you are doing right now, chasing towards to the life you desire, know this, you are a lot closer than you think. Don’t give up on your aspiration. It is just around the corner. Keep going for that one extra step. You never know just one last call, one last push, one last effort is all it takes to reach your dream and expectation in life.
