“Life is not easy for any of us.
But what of that?
We must have perseverance.”

Remember… We are The Economy.
Recovery depends on the work we do today… regardless of difficulty, regardless of political belief, regardless of what the media says. It’s our work (your work) that will get us there.
The US Navy SEALS have a creed they live by in their work. A few of my favorite lines are…
- The lives of my teammates and the success of the mission depend on me… (individual accountability)
- If knocked down, I will get back up, every time.
- In the worst of conditions, the legacy of my teammates steadies my resolve and silently guides my every deed. (purpose)
- By wearing the Trident I accept the responsibility of my chosen profession and way of life. It is a privilege that I must earn every day.
What if we all had a Trident for our work – something that says we truly accept the responsibility for our chosen profession – and we did it?
You up for it?

How are you kicking off your salesday?
Are you preparing your mind with solid thought, information, and support? Are you allowing the right radio or TV personalities to get you ready? The right news or material? The right people at the office?
Be careful to what you give your attention. It all has an influence on you. (And kicking it is much more fun than mediocrity… or worse.)
Feed your mind well. It’s where action starts.
