You just have to get back on the horse.
So my day started disastrously. I received a call from a client who I had been working with two weeks now and had yesterday got the finance approved for the house he is buying.
He was calling to say that he had been talking directly with the bank and they had approved him on the spot. Two weeks work and I had lost my client.
You could say that his call had put me in a despondent mood. It is amazing when we get bad news how quickly our mind can go into a negative state.
I was questioning myself, did I make a mistake, could I have done something differently, could I....., maybe if....., if I only.......
Before I new it I was in a downward spiral.
That is when I gave myself a mental wake up call. There was nothing I could do about this client, but that did not mean I was beat.
By the time I finished work for the day, I had lined up meetings with another 2 potential clients for Friday and next Monday.
I may have been hurting, but if I quit it was all for nothing. However by moving onto the next prospect, potentially I will still get my reward.
