What is it that drives those to work harder, complete daily lead-generation activities and pursue their dreams with vigor? I feel the reason the top 20% get where they are is because they know their “why”… Knowing your “why” will increase your motivation to do the daily activities which will grow your business and your income.
1. Why am I in the Real Estate Business?
2. What do I like best about the Real Estate Industry?
3. When do I feel the happiest?
4. When do I feel I am working to my full potential?
5. What does my life/business look like a year from today? Five years?
By reassessing your priorities you are able to find your purpose…add value to each day by making choices which get you closer to your goals and finding contentment. Since your priorities may change as you achieve your goals, it is important to assess them often. What means the most to you? Is it your family, financial freedom, growing your business? When you are having trouble staying focused or finding motivation always come back to these priorities.
Tips to Find Inspiration:
Create a series of the small action steps necessary to make your goals a reality…”How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!”
TURN OFF! Get away from phones, emails, text, and electronic communication for one hour each day…reconnect with yourself or with a relationship you have been ignoring. And I’m serious dude…turn off the iPhone.
Get inspired by watching what other successful people are doing. Think about those who have faced and overcome adversity. What can you learn from them?
Get your creative juices flowing when you feel a brick wall coming your way by going to the gym, go for a walk or a bike ride…Get outside… the fresh air fosters new ideas.
Once you have found the inspiration you will feel the surge of creative boost to your moral…it will bring positive energy to your life and relationships…you’ll be doing what you love and working at your full potential.
