And then My Boss said, Take that Fear and Shove it!

Written by Richard Vegas

Hey gang; Ok it's time to create some good habits. You know, like eating a pork barrel full of Ben and Jerry's ice cream at 3 am inrepparttar morning. Nah......that's notrepparttar 117490 kind of habit I'm talking about. The only habit that will create is a quick trip torepparttar 117491 toilet first thing inrepparttar 117492 morning.

To create a personal success system that never fails requires good habits. Without good habits, you will default to bad habits.

I say this allrepparttar 117493 time....When you go after something don't come back till you get it. Let me illustrate. Inrepparttar 117494 sales profession, people are taught never ask a prospect for his time. Take it; they're taught.

Well, if you think about it, then success in anything you're doing can be boiled down to a scientific formula. Failure can also be boiled down to a formula. Applyrepparttar 117495 one, avoidrepparttar 117496 other. Sounds simple, right?

Then why do so darn many people fail when attempting something worthwhile? Why do so many find themselves sucking wind and always ending uprepparttar 117497 tail instead ofrepparttar 117498 head? Michael Jordan said it best. "I have failed over and over again in my life, and THAT is why I succeed.

Then why do so few people achieve what Michael Jordan has? Fear of failure. No body likes to fail. But failure is only temporary as long as we take another stab at what we're doing.

You say though……..yea, but I'mrepparttar 117499 one that's been stabbed. Ok, so what makes you so special? You think Elvis never failed? You think Henry Ford never failed? What causes failure anyway?

Timidity and Fear! Yuk! I knew you were going to say that.

Yea, that's right. Let me illustrate. I knew a guy a few years ago that was hard up for a job. He told me someone suggested he sell insurance. Yuk, he said, why don't I just slit my wrist? But he said, I can't even get a job driving a garbage truck, so, he did take a job selling insurance.

He said I was scared stiff. He had never sold anything in his life. So, his manager told him, "I'll give you five names everyday to call on. Just make sure to see these peoplerepparttar 117500 very same day. He promised and went home to study his sales material.

Everyday for a week, he made several sales, and then, something interesting happened. His sales manager was in a meeting and could not give him his five names to call on.

He told him to go torepparttar 117501 yellow pages and findrepparttar 117502 names of five owners and call on them. He said that's what I've been doing forrepparttar 117503 last week. And his sales manager said these words to him. "Success is a matter of mental attitude." YOUR attitude. And, your entire career will depend on your attitude.

He said I went out there withrepparttar 117504 same attitude withrepparttar 117505 names I selected as I had withrepparttar 117506 names that my sales manager had picked for me.

Then he said I learned an important lesson about timidity and fear. First of all I recognized fear is nature's way of keeping me from harm, particularly when I don't know what's waiting for me.
