You cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure.
I have always said that everyone is in sales. Maybe you don't hold the title of salesperson, but if the business you are in requires you to deal with people, you, my friend, are in sales.
We all prospect, and don't even know we're doing it. When you start the dating process, you are actually prospecting for the person you want to marry. When you're interviewing employees, you are prospecting for someone who will best fit your needs.
If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.
