Moral of the story. True sales professionals know life isn't fair. Not everyone gets dealt the same cards. Daily dedication and hard work is the only way you can make up such a deficit. Persistence is the only way to cross that "bridge" from mediocrity to success. That is, of course, if success "suits" you.
"Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment." - Jim Rohn
