Bad habits are like chunks of glass that look like precious stones, but will give disillusionment and dissatisfaction. Achievement is quickened or prolonged by your habits. I am talking about your daily mental habits that have sphere of influence over your daily life. These habits are like glue that attaches everything to it in your person, bad or good. Good habits attract advantages and bad habits attract disadvantages. When you arrive at work, for example, instead of getting down to business you say to yourself, “I need a cup of coffee before I get started and I also have a really important text I should make.”
Habits like these are nothing but distractions. You are just wasting time that could have been well spent on the sales floor and you are robbing yourself from making significant sales which results in smaller pay check and commission.
It is better to get into the habit of having your coffee before work or at lunch time, and make your phone calls at lunch time. Refuse a bad habit by rejecting everything that arouses it. One bad habit I see happen continuously is leaving the sales floor early to go home when business is slow, but it could get busy the moment you leave! If this practice becomes a bad habit, just think how many sales you could lose by doing this over and over.
Keep striving until your hard work is met with success. You can be successful or unsuccessful. It all depends on the quality and intensity of your thoughts and the degree of your will power. If you apply positive thinking together with dynamic will power, you will succeed.
Let’s say that you do your visualizing in the morning and as soon as you finish you say to yourself, “I have probably just wasted my time seeing myself making all this money and I am pretty sure this technique is useless.” Or “I just do not have the patience to do all of this; ‘patience is a virtue of the dead.'” Negative thinking is the same as worrying. When you worry you are digging an early grave for yourself. You let anxieties and worries arrange your own death. Why bury yourself alive daily from fear and worry defeating yourself and thus preventing the good that is coming your way. Which shall it be victory or defeat? If you adhere to a positive thought it will become real in form.
