Starting a new job is never really easy...especially in sales. I find that to be my current situation. Don't get me wrong I actually like my job...something that I haven't been fortunate to say in about 6 years haha. The ability to go out and truly make it my own is great. The hard part is convincing others who don't know me from Adam to take a gamble on me.
Anyone who really knows me knows that I've never been motivated in terms of true happiness, by work or by money. That sentiment remains true, but this year the year of 40 has taught me so much about myself and about others. I'm quite resilient and make my life continue on with only enough money to eat dinner. But, truthfully speaking by constantly telling myself that I will never make more than enough I probably won't.
So what does this all have to do with my job? Well, for the first time in a very long time, I have a true desire to follow my dreams, wants and desires. This job has gotten things out of me that I never truly gave before. Visiting 20-25 acccounts a day as opposed to the obligatory 10. Working on my presentation. Practicing in front of the mirror how I will introduce myself. That's something I've never done before. Who know's if I'll be successful at this new gig, but I do know that I have and will continue to try because the ultimate goal is right in front of me. It's Oz and although it seems far a way I see it.
There are obstacles in life that people choose to avoid rather than hitting head first. I'm one of them. But, I gotta tell you when you have clarity those obstacles are just potholes in life and on the other side of those potholes are roads paved perfectly for your vehicle. So, I'm going to continue to drive on and hopefully...NO...not hopefully....I WILL attain those dreams, wants and desires :-)
