I’m sure you’ve read or seen the Serenity Prayer many times in your lifetime:
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.”
I was reading an article and came across this prayer again. It started making me think in the area of sales prospecting and cold calls.
I can’t control the weather, economy, luck, timing or company decisions.
BUT I can control the number of sales cold calls I make. I CAN control the amount of networking I initiate. I CAN control the number of referrals I ask for. I CAN control my sales activity and effort and hard work.
I may not be able to control the results fully but I choose to be responsible for what’s in my control.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
