How we change what others think, feel, believe and do

Have you ever encountered a businessperson that constantly complains yelling
about how business is down and the economy, politics, technology and other
factors seem to stress them out? Have you experienced selling professionals that
blame goals, territory and commissions on everything?
A fundamental difference exists between successful professionals and those that aren’t. Non successful people procrastinate, find excuses and blame numerous people and things and become stagnant. Successful professionals engage in conversations with advisors, rebrand products/services, themselves and still hustle in good and bad times.
As an entrepreneur or business professional you have options you can be a spectator and complain about the issues or you can become active on the field. The choice is yours but the excuses will continue until you make a choice – the right one.
