What do you get from these sentences? What is the meaning of "enthusiastic" here?
For every sale you miss because you're too enthusiastic, you will miss a hundred because you're not enthusiastic enough
This isn't a logical sentence. That's why you're having trouble with it. Also, we could help you more if you gave us the sentence before it and also the one immediately following it, too. (If there are more.)For every sale you miss because you're too enthusiastic, you will miss a hundred because you're not enthusiastic enough
I wish I had said that.I think the message is that if you are in sales, having too much enthusiasm is better than not having enough. The over-enthusiastic salesman might lose an occaisional customer who doesn't like aggressive sales techniques, but the under-enthusiastic salesman loses 100 times as many customers by his lack of enthusiasm.
