Most business people who have the role of selling are generally optimistic by nature, they can see their future looks bright no matter what and that is part of why those who are successful succeed. There is a hunger, a drive, an energy that says they will not settle – they are in the zone.
They tend to be ideas visionaries and visionaries drive business and business drives economies.
Why is it then that only 10-20% of this group are considered elite and in this economy will outlast the others? Imagine if you were in this group, and maybe you already are? What might be different about your life if you decided to be in this elite group?
Those successful ones play ‘In The Zone’. They play the following game:
Self and Mastery
Their focus is strong and unwavering.
Their beliefs are solid especially around relationships and money.
They work out quickly who fits their values and who doesn’t
They take feedback as feedback.
Self and Action
They have rituals that serve them
They schedule activities

Self and Skills

Self and Others

They realize the 5 people you do hang out with become you
