This is a continuation of the last show, How To Succeed In Business By REALLY Trying.
The one-hit wonder defines a career. The sophomore slump doesn’t necessarily define a career, but it might. It depends on what happens in the years that follow.
We dream, we work and we prepare for an opportunity. Waiting for the door to crack open – even if only slightly – we hope for a chance.
Knowing what to do with an opportunity is an important component in how to succeed in business by really, REALLY trying.
Today’s show is all about the process – embracing it, enduring it and finding ways to even enjoy it. Rejection, failure and disappointment are part of it. The process is incomplete without them.
