We are a couple of weeks into the 4th quarter and there are a few ways that we, as sales professionals, can look at the remainder of the year. For some, you may have gone through your busiest time of the year and are running out of triggers you can pull. Some of you may have burnt out and have decided to take a breather for a few weeks and coast into the holidays. Unfortunately this is not a practical plan and as a sales professional you cannot afford to cruise control into 2013!

Your belief will bring you success and failure is always right around the corner. The harsh reality is that as an entrepreneur you will need to fight to win and succeed.
