I Run Every Day

Categories: New Home Sales, New Home Sales Training | Posted: January 21, 2008

Kevin Odiorne was a runner at Georgetown University and qualified to represent the United States in the half-marathon world championship. When asked, "What’s the secret to running?" he would respond, "There is no secret. It is a simple formula."

"I run every day.
If it is cold, I run.
If it is hot, I run.
If it is raining, I run.
If I don’t want to run, I run.
I run every day."

Philosopher Elbert Hubbard defined discipline this way: "Do what you have to, when you have to, whether you feel like it or not."

Apply this formula to your career. You sell every day — when it’s hot, cold, raining, snowing, on a holiday, in a recession or peak economy — whether you feel like it or not. No excuses. Simple enough.

    I LOVE THIS!!! So true Myers. I just a sales rep tell me that she is staying late to have her own phone-a-thon. The same rep who sold 6 homes last month. DISCIPLINE.
