Motivation - Why Mistakes Are A Good Thing

1/10/2019

You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way. ~ Walter Hagen

Mistakes Are Worth Making

As we head into the fresh, new year, I found this excerpt from author Neil Gaiman that I thought was profound and a great way to keep perspective this year. I wanted to share “his wish” with you this week!“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things happen, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, and changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.  So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, love, work, family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, this year, next year, and forever.”  Wishing you a wonderful week ahead – I’m here if you need anything!
 

Something to Think About

What a great thought for the New Year. Don’t worry about if it will work or not. Just jump in and try new thoughts, new ideas, new strategies, new mindsets, new opportunities all on for size. When you do – you’ll grow and change and invite potential into your life every day.

Step out of your prospecting comfort zone. Is there a new niche you’ve always wanted to break into? Is there a neighborhood farm that you’ve had your eye on for a while? Can you brave adding FSBOs and Expireds to your call list? Pick at least one thing differently to move you in a new direction and don’t be afraid to make a mistake. They’re awesome teachers!
 

Words of Wisdom 
 

I think my mother... made it clear that you have to live life by your own terms and you have to not worry about what other people think and you have to have the courage to do the unexpected. Caroline Kennedy

When you begin to worry, go find something to do. Get busy being a blessing to someone; do something fruitful. Talking about your problem or sitting alone, thinking about it, does no good; it serves only to make you miserable. Above all else, remember that worrying is totally useless. Worrying will not solve your problem.  Joyce Meyer

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy. Leo Buscaglia.

New Year, New You

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
~Tony Robbins

The Direction of Your Goals

January is all abuzz with talk about goals and resolutions. For good reason! Goals put a powerful force into play both consciously and subconsciously. Goals give our life direction, and it gives you a sense of satisfaction when that goal is achieved. What would you like to attract into your life? What area of growth would you like to have happen this year? What blocks would you like to remove?  What would you like to attain? Where would you like to go? What problems would you like to see solved? What about your career? Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down - as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. We love to help agents succeed and realize their BIG goals and dreams, and we’re pretty successful at helping them to create that vision that propels them to accomplish more than they ever thought possible. If you need some help, I’m just a call away!
 

Something to Think About

It’s said that the most important part of a goal is to write it down. Those who write their goals are twice as likely to achieve their goals!

Write those goals and find a corresponding image for each to help make them come to life. Consider putting them on a vision board and posting it somewhere you can see it often to help you stay the course all year around!
 

Words of Wisdom
 

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals. Melody Beattie

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. Jim Rohn

Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. David Joseph Schwartz

Your goals are the road maps that guide you and show you what is possible for your life. Les Brown

 

The Season of Christmas

12/24/2018

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
~Calvin Coolidge

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! There’s a little child in all of us I think, don’t you? Today, I wanted to share a Christmas classic with you – the “Linus Speech” from A Charlie Brown Christmas. In his quiet, unassuming, and kind way, Linus meets Charlie Brown’s frustration and shares the “true meaning of Christmas”. It gets me every time. I hope you enjoy this iconic childhood memory as much as I did.

Peace on earth and good will towards all men. I like that thought. Wishing you a week of joy, peace, celebration – and yes, even a little nostalgia! I’m here if you need anything!
 

Something to Think About 

Ours is a hustle and bustle business. Long hours and a hectic pace. Sometimes one of the best things we can do for ourselves, our family, and our business – is to SLOW DOWN. Perhaps choosing a classic holiday movie favorite and enjoying it with the ones you love might be just the ticket! Have fun.

Share this classic clip with your friends and family, and maybe a few favorites of your own! Like when the Grinch’s heart grows three sizes! Or when Clarence the angel gets his wings in It’s a Wonderful Life.
