More on Habits

In the 1993 movie Groundhog Day, Bill Murray’s character finds himself caught in a time loop, repeating the same day again and again (until he gets it right). I can’t believe that was almost 30-years ago!
The movie really annoyed me.
Then I realized it was supposed to.
Sales can be like that too.
It is really annoying until you realize YOU control what you choose to do each day.
So that is my question; Do you believe YOU control what you do each day?
I believe the two things I have 100% control over are how I spend my time and my attitude. Everything else flows from there.
I’ll even add if you choose not to control your day, you’re making a choice.
For me, some days that feeling of control is empowering.
It energizes me; I am the master of my destiny, making my way out in the world in complete control of who I am and what I want to accomplish.
Other days I really wish I could offload all that responsibility. Blaming “them” for all the things that didn’t get done. Saying it’s the prospect or customer not me. Abdicating all responsibility.
Then I realize, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Choosing sales was a direct result of wanting control over my income.
Of course, your perception IS reality so what YOU believe is most important to answering the question.
So, I’ll repeat my question; Do you believe YOU control what you do each day?
Today is a new day. Instead of being caught in a time loop, you can transform your future by making choices about what you do today.
