I choose to Bounce: “I don’t measure a man’s success by how high he climbs, but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.” General George S. Patton….
When you have the privilege of going through a drought time in your life, you really never know depth of your character….When people shun you, everything you touch turns sour and you question your purpose. It is only then you look deep into your soul and ask for help……. “Attempt something so great that unless God intervenes, it is bound to fail.” Jamie Buckingham’s quote continues to ring in my ear……
We started RealAgile with the purpose of changing the process of prospecting from haphazard, random prospecting into scalable, dynamic business solutions…. 5 friends who have a heart to change our industry. Now we’re 9 friends and growing. Each day provides us with the opportunity to give-up, but we refuse to heed the passive naysayers with myopic views….. Fear stops too many ideas from moving forward.
Every time I look at my phone, I think about the frustration and difficulties of raising capital for the telephone. But new ideas, processes and inventions are developed from pain…. People move away from pain or towards pleasure. We believe the old ways and no longer “the way” to prospect….. BE THE HERO… then go and do. Terry McDaniel

Take a breath, tomorrow is a new day… Whatever you need to do to gain new perspective or shift the energy. Often times for me it is just getting away from the business for a little bit. Read a book. Take a drive. Amazing how quickly things can get back on track with a little time-out.
