Motivational Monday - Founding Father - John Adams

John Adams

"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence."

John Adams

So, it had me thinking about what we all do every day...  What we do that will lead us to getting business, growing our database and of course our income...

What we do in our careers will result in successes or failures...  Even if we THINK that just sitting on our butt waiting till next week to do any actual lead generation will grow our business...  It probably wont.  Even if we WANT it to work, if we are not doing what needs to be done, we have a high probability to see failure. 

What are your thoughts on this quote?
