On the road again………..

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ray @ 8:05 pm

Last weekend I did a three day book signing for my book, “It’s Great to Be YOU”at Rural Route #1 Popcorn in Montfort Wisconsin. It was a great three days as it was their “fall harvest” weekend and the place was packed all three days. I met and sold books to people from South Carolina, Iowa, Illinois, and as far away as Alaska!

I love to listen to people and hear their stories. No matter what state you are from, many of the stories are universal in theme. We all have ups and downs, highs and lows, and middle of the road days.

I believe that the key to reacting to any given day is to find at least one good thing in it before the day is done. It really is about what you want to focus on.

I went into the three day weekend with the goal of selling each day, at least one more book than the day before. I reached, and exceeded my goal each day, but not without a little extra effort. On day two, I had to stay an extra hour to reach my goal.

Many times, it is a matter of attitude and willingness to do what it takes to reach your goals. With a down economy, jobless rates rising, as well as everyday issues that need to be dealt with, you must stay focused on the result you want and you will end up where you want to be more often than not.

Talk soon…….
