Improve Your Aim

When an archer misses the bull’s eye, it is never the fault of the target. To improve your aim, you must improve yourself.

——- Gilbert Arland

Do you get frustrated when you fail to make a sale, fail to land that big customer/client, flop an important presentation or speech, blow an assignment or project, lose at some competition?

It’s easy to blame. Blame the customer/client. Blame the prospect. Blame the room or equipment for a bad speech, etc. It’s much harder to self-reflect, to look inward and acknowledge that you are to blame when something doesn’t go your way.

The reality is that when things don’t go as planned, you are ultimately to blame.

Lack of preparation, failure to acquire more information/facts or a failure to practice your craft over and over again until you are a virtuoso at what you – these are the real reasons you miss your target; the real reasons you fail.

Being great requires growth. And growth comes from relentless, daily study or daily deliberate practice.

You have to work at improving yourself every day. You must get better at what you do on a daily basis.

Daily self-improvement is a habit forged by every successful individual. It is a prerequisite for success.

When you become a virtuoso at what you do, you hit your target every time.
