Only The Weak Ones Quit!

Written by graham and julie

Onlyrepparttar weak ones quit. Is that true? There is a story of a CEO of a multi-national company who decided to withdraw a product fromrepparttar 116780 market when it had consistently failed for nine months and eaten up millions of pounds in advertising, promotions etc. Was he weak? He could have maintainedrepparttar 116781 myth of success and stayed inrepparttar 116782 market and gradually withdrawn, costing him and his company many more millions. Instead, he chose to facerepparttar 116783 fact that they had made a bad decision backingrepparttar 116784 product inrepparttar 116785 first place. He admitted his mistake publicly and withdrewrepparttar 116786 product before it cost him and his shareholders more money. Is he weak? We believerepparttar 116787 opposite is true. He is a winner and winners quit in order that they can go on to achieve greater success. Perhaps, therefore,repparttar 116788 phrase should be, ‘onlyrepparttar 116789 weak ones stick'. The strong appear to recognise when they have exhausted allrepparttar 116790 options and get out beforerepparttar 116791 situation becomes a liability. The successful appear to know when to quit whereasrepparttar 116792 weak ones,repparttar 116793 unsuccessful, stay with a project hoping and praying that it will turn itself around. Just stop for a moment and ask yourself: Am I maintaining a project, thoughts, attitudes or beliefs that I should have ditched a long time ago? What is it that I know I should have quitted but keep hold of? What am I holding on to because I am afraid to let go? What is it that stops me from quitting? David was made redundant in 2001 and decided, because he had been relatively successful in corporate life, to become a management consultant, working from home. He had read allrepparttar 116794 books and information onrepparttar 116795 web telling him how much these guys earned and because he had 20 plus years in management they would be eager to call on his assistance and knowledge. He realised he had little, in fact no, selling skills so he enrolled on a number of sales training courses. In fact David enrolled on and attended many courses inrepparttar 116796 first six months to learnrepparttar 116797 ropes. How to cold call. How to put a proposal together. How to find outrepparttar 116798 real problem inrepparttar 116799 organisation. How to closerepparttar 116800 sale. Etc. etc. etc.

Along comes an e-mail, 'have a look at this, create a presence onrepparttar 116787 web by linking your site to others; a license to print money'.
