There are always excuses when you are looking for one. And it always sounds good to you. In fact with the right dose of “facts” and a piece of paper illustrating your position, you can justify just about anything.
Life isn’t fair. It’s not even close to fair. Not in relationships. Not in the sales process. Not in negotiating, closing, or getting signatures on your final contract. Someone always has the advantage.
Shame on us for not trying harder. For having dreams and goals and ambition, and then giving up. Shame on us for knowing how to be better business people and just not putting in the time.

Maybe losing is more than the “bad luck” that we situationally bemoan. Maybe we are creating a destiny of losing by making bad personal decisions.
Like no matter how many times you step through the guaranteed success road map you just read about that you never really feel satisfied. It’s like your dreams are a mirage. Your destiny is always another 12 months away. Your problem might be CNN.
