Cooking a steak and NOT eating it...

Imagine driving to the supermarket, scouring the different cuts of meat, selecting and paying for a $15.99 cut of meat, driving home, marinating the meat, and then cooking it...only to throw it away in the garbage without ever taking a bite. Where am I going with this?

I advise all of my clients to develop a job hunt plan. Not all of them do it. Those that do, are excited at first, but then the excitement wears off when they realize how difficult it is to execute that plan. Sadly, this is where most fall off the wagon and revert to their more comfortable ways. Sales isn't for everyone. But this isn't about Sales. This is about SURVIVAL. You have a mortgage/rent to pay. You have a family to support. You enjoy leisure activities and recreation - and it costs money. Not selling yourself, is not an option. MAKE THE SALE! Pick up that phone and contact the hiring manager. Walk-in unannounced.

Whatever you do, don't get caught up in negativity and complaining. Your life is a direct reflection of the conversations going on inside of your head. Replace, "I won't ever get hired," with, "I am the best damn (insert title here) in this town and I will get hired this month!" Say it over and over and over. Then, move a muscle and EXECUTE that plan.
