Sales As A Contact Sport (SaaCS)

"Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing." -Henry Sanders & Vince Lombardi

Are you a Lion or a Gazelle?

Lion vs. Gazelle …

Every morning in Africa, A gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up.
It knows it must out run the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

It does not matter whether you are a lion or gazelle, when the sun comes up you had better start running.  – Jim Rea

Food For Thought…

The question I posed, “Are you a Lion or a Gazelle?”, opens the door for self analysis and should be on your mind when planning your day.

In other words; “Do you move towards achieving your goal(s) with a written, well thought out plan in mind” or “are you moving away from your fears of failure by allowing your day to just happen”?

The moral is simple…
It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle because when the sun comes up, you had better be running…

…which means that if you don’t start your day early and get a jump on things,  someone else may gobble up your opportunities because you were either too slow to begin and/or unprepared to compete at the highest level.
