One thing that separates winners and losers: attitude. It doesn’t matter whether it is sports, business or life. People succeed in spite of odds because they decide they want to be successful and will be successful. Their attitude is everything.

People begin to become successful the minute they decide to be.
— Harvey Mackay

Next time one of your sales reps tells you that they can’t meet their targets because of this condition or that condition, this or that obstacle or this and that limitation, suggest to them that they look at people who succeed. It is really all in their head.
