‘The more I practice, the luckier I get’ is a truism that I find I agree with more and more as I get older, and perhaps wiser
Whether it is a sport you play, a business you start, an elevator-pitch you deliver or a resume you send out, the more you practice or execute it, whatever it is, the better you will do it and the more successful the outcome will be! Whether it is scoring a goal, making a sale, impressing an interviewer or getting noticed by a potential employer, practice makes perfect.
Try working for a period of each day or week outside of your comfort zone. Take a risk with a sales call. Spend time speaking to a colleague or customer you don’t get along with. Call a difficult customer. Go back to a client or employer you were less than successful with in the past. Apply for a job that you might have to up your game for. Believe in yourself. Challenge yourself.
