Good is the enemy of great. (Hat tip to KayK).

Good is the enemy of great.
(Hat tip to KayK).

Good is the enemy of great.
Wow. That is amazing. I’m not a nut. I’m not stoned people. No I simply stumbled upon the only concept I may ever need to motivate myself.
In life you can be good and it might get you to second place. That’s cool. But like Bruce Jenner I aspire for the top. I want to be the king olympiad. The guy who got silver rarely smiles. The guy who got bronze is feeling like the Boss. Why? He can eclipse silver next year. The difference between good and great is the same as first and second. Anyone can be top five, top three. It takes a champion to be first. It takes a champion to get the GOLD. And sadly we aren’t all made to be First place. Wait, I recant that statement. We aren’t all made to be first. To be Gold. And that is OK. What I simply encourage we all do is aim to be the best. If your goals are small so shall your results be. If your dreams are small you likewise will achieve just about nothing. Now if your needs are small, by all means do you my friends. Yet no one wins when you don’t aim for greatness. Your playing small will not honor your ancestors or be the proper action for the globe as a whole.

Good. Sounds well, good enough. That reminds me of second place which in my world is the second loser. You heard me people. Second place is the first loser.
What would ever be cool in failure. Sorry olympians- but you know you didn’t go for the silver. When I order steak I don’t want the sides. I want the steak. The sides are a bonus. And also good enough sucks. Sorry if that’s abrasive but its honest. Giving your best is acceptable. Good enough isn’t. And as such good can abjectly be said to equate failure when considered in comparison to great.

Let’s review:
Good: satisfactory in quality, quantity, or degree.
Great: unusual or considerable in degree, power, intensity.

When we look at these definitions from Dictionary.com we see something startling. Its appears to indicate that there is an A student and a C student to put it simply. Now both students get the job done, they both pass muster. However one is a champion and one simply had completion on the play. A lot of NFL players make touchdowns and game winning plays, but every year there is only one superbowl winner. The second place guy was good- Real Good. However they weren’t great. That’s the difference in success. You can sell a few ppl, sign up a few more. The Greats though close massively.
Its time to be Great people.
Are you committed to the extra mile?
Will you exceed even your own expectations?
Forget Superman. Be the hero in your story.

#TRUTH.

You cannot lose unless you quit.

4 Jul

Keeping it simple today folks.
You cannot lose unless you quit.

Life doesn’t become any easier to grasp and implement. A loser is someone who quits pure and simple. When you commit to an action you must follow through.
You may not come in first place.
You may not reach your sales goal.
You may come in third.
Did you give it your all? If so you won. Really folks- If you quit when you saw you weren’t going to get to the top this go round- you are a loser. A lot of life is simply showing up and participating. So if you do those two things to the full measure of your abilities you are a winner.

-Sales is a numbers game. All business is.
Even Obama needs the votes. Its how it works. So if you are aiming to reach the pinnacle and commission like heck- do you quit? No. Because when you do you breed failure and that skews the numbers in their favor not yours. Also when you quit you set a bad example for your team. Why work with a quitter? He/she can’t teach me anything is what people will think. You will lose future sales and recruits as well once people see that you aren’t the winner you claimed to be on facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. So why quit and then multiply that loss by an exponential amount. The same exponential loss can be exponential gain. Speak on the lesson you learn in your blogs and social media outlets. Besides adding authenticity to your journey it shows people your human and these people will join you. They will buy from you. There is potential to grow when we lose because failures make winners. It is akin to a baby learning to walk. We’ve all seen it and smiled. They stand then fall on their bottom. They rise and take a few steps. Then use your leg to cheat. Then they fall. Yet as time progresses. They gain balance and a sense of what they are doing- so will you. Also their muscle memory increases and learns. And then they are in their groove. The same applies to you. Success, winning can be habits. If you let them. So turn everything into victory.

-How you lose is winning.
Its true. If you lose a race and throw a tantrum people will disdain you.
If you spit on the winner or break your trophy you reek of ignorance and contempt.
What you do speaks volumes so why let your actions speak pure failure and disgust.
As I’ve said before- ACT AS IF. Act as a winner. Act as a king. Act out your success even in defeat and there is no loss.
If you come in second and the race was close and it was down to the wire- people will remember you. They will cheer you and even your opponents will be drawn close to you.

You cannot lose unless you quit.
Point blank period. There is nothing to think about. Every action and result is a victory if you make it. Every time you are bested teaches you something. Anytime you learn you win. For example you pitched your heart out. To ten ppl today. And the day before. And the day before. And you didn’t get one bite. However if you look at your results you will find answers. You will learn what you should do. You will discover what you didn’t. wrong. It may be the time you asked. It may be who you asked. It could be anything. But these little details allow you to craft your pitch. They allow you to emerge victorious in every instance. So the only question is will you find the victories that exist in every loss or will you quit?
