Terryisms….General George S. Patton

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….

If you haven’t hit a bottom, then you never know how high you can bounce or what you’re really made of……Getting up from what the world considers failure is only the beginning of the real “who you are”. You can quote a thousand affirmations, but until you deal with persistent doubt, fear and worry all you stand on is sand.

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……

did-you-call-your-back-if-not-someone-else-will-2-26-08.jpgWe 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

  1. Hi Terry

    I think this is true for each of us on our individual paths and for those of us who are entrepreneurs. There are plenty of times to doubt and question the purpose of hanging in there another day. I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to say forget about it. And yet…

    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.
