Build on Your Small Successes (Video)

June 1st, 2010 by Bob Burg

While there is certainly a time and place to step outside your comfort zone, it’s often more effective to continually stretch your existing comfort zone by building on your small successes.

This way, your comfort zone gets bigger and bigger and, being inside your comfort zone makes it easier to take the necessary action, gain confidence and improve your abilities.  This philosophy was taught by perhaps one of the greatest “coaches” that ever lived; the great fight trainer, Angelo Dundee.

Have you thought yet what you’ll take on as the action idea for this week? It really doesn’t matter what it is, so long as it contains some small successes upon which you’d like to build.

Make it a GREAT Endless Referrals Week!
