Are you your biggest COMPETITOR?

Read an interesting story this morning about Abraham Lincoln. “Some years ago, I was passing a field where a farmer was trying to plow with a very old and decrepit horse. I noticed on the flank of the animal a big horsefly, and I was about to brush it off when the farmer said, “Don’t you bother that fly, Abe! If it wasn’t for that fly this old hoss wouldn’t move an inch!”

Lincoln continued on about challenges he faced that kept him digging deeper into himself for great strength.

How do you respond to the horsefly in your sales career? Does your competition make you want to quit or does your competition drive you to new strategies?

What if I told you that your biggest competitor is YOU? If you can agree with this, you are a prime candidate for coaching and your successful results may come quicker than you think!
