TW,

You're doing something you do not love. Even your logic dictates that the person who loves what they do excels with ease.

In their love of what they do, any and all teaching is excepted and incorporated into their daily activities with eagerness.

So step back and take a good long look at the bigger picture of your life. Is this something you really want to do or is it something you're doing to get away from something else.

If it is the latter, you will be just as miserable as you were before you went down this path.

And don't let it bug you if you conclude that it's time to put this down and look for something else. I've done it countless times in my life and I have no regrets. I did find what I loved doing and every morning I look forward to doing it.

Peace and Success to you

So, in my MIND, as a salesperson, ALL I MUST DO is present the LOGIC of the situation, and the ACTION will AUTOMATICALLY take place (buying).

This (in REALITY) is not so -- which FURTHER makes "NO SENSE."

For instance, when I SEE the logical need for something, I (in correctly) figure -- AHA! That will be EASY to sell -- All I must do is present the LOGIC behind the REASONS to buy, and the sale is ipso facto GUARANTEED / EASY.

Like, DUH! OBVIOUSLY. --- Easy as pie.

Then I go out in the real world + get FRUSTRATED because the real world is NOT operating that way ---- Even though it........... "***SHOULD***"

I can't seem to get past that "SHOULD" frustration. I see that the solution is NOT logic --- but I cannot see what the solution *IS*. (instead)

So, I guess I'm half way there (at least).

I now see what the solution ISN'T -- I just cannot see what it *IS*!
