Don't stop now-for a successful tomorrow, you've got to keep building on the success achieved today.
Ask 10 people, and you'll get 10 different definitions of
success. No matter what it means to you, however, true success can
never be stagnant-you don't just achieve it once and then keep
it for life. To remain successful, you must continue climbing.
In sales, there are two parallel ladders of success, one
internal and one external. The first involves regular
improvement-learning as much as possible about your profession and
product. The second one concerns service-using what you've
learned to enhance your ability to serve your customers.
