Motivational Monday #28: focus

Image result for focus

The quickest way to achieving a goal is to focus on it until it's complete. Many times though we are distracted by 'good' things that prevent us from hitting the goal or hitting it when we would like to. It's not usually bad things that distracted us, but things that are still good, just not as important at the time. When it's time to make prospecting calls we may find that we get distracted cleaning our desks, going through emails, etc... still good things, but it's not what what we needed to do at that time. 

When we get rid of distractions and focus on that task/goal that we have we get it done feeling accomplished knowing that we made best use of our time. When you are feeling distracted from what you need to get done today, identify it, shake it off and complete your task at hand. If we focus on one at a time and bring it from 0-100% complete and move to the next at the end of the day, week, month we'll be way ahead. 

Make today a GREAT one!

Motivational Monday #47: What do you tolerate?

We don't get what we want in life & business we get what we tolerate or another way of saying it is we get what we settle for. Putting it that way sounds harsh, but it's 100% true. Think about it. I know it's true for sure. I "want" to be in better shape...great first step in deciding, but if consistent action of a period of time isn't taken to get to that goal, well...you get it. I don't achieve that so I get what I settled for. That rule applies to us in business as well. Think about the goals you have for growth and then look and the steps taken to achieve them, not just the steps planned, but the steps taken. I'm sure we all have some place in our lives that we want to be better...today the charge is to STOP tolerating less than we want and take action to get there using the resources we have. #CrushItToday

Motivational Monday #46: Reaping a Harvest

Today is for us to remember to reap the harvest. The harvest is only possible if we have planted seeds and watered. If we have done both of those things then the harvest will come. In sales we always need to be planting seeds with prospects as well as current clients. The second part is equally important; the watering of the seeds. We need to stay in front of them with value on a consistent basis for the value and relationship to grow. Today think about who some of the people are that you met with, but the follow up may have slipped. Circle back and reconnect with them purposefully.

Have a great day!

Today is just the simple reminder to go forward. Many times we wait for things to be the 'perfect scenario' for us to move forward. There is no such thing as the perfect scenario, but there is such a thing of a great scenario so lets create them and go for it.

Go for it today! You have the talent & ability to succeed in what you pursue in achieving today. Decide to take the step forward and get it.

Motivational Monday #44: Leveraging your time


As we are constantly busy it's important for us to look at what we are busy doing. Our goal isn't to be busy; our goal is to be productive. Are there things in our day that we are doing that we can leverage out to someone or something else? Is there a wiser way of doing something that will save us time and then with that time we can do another productive activity? I've found that protecting time blocks is huge for me so I get done what needs to be done (important) and don't let it slide due to something that may appear urgent (but isn't) and could be less important. It begins with us asking ourselves one simple question: Is there a better way?

Have a great one!

I'm looking forward to the sales meeting this Thursday as well! Remember we'll have a few of us share branch market share reports & impromptu presentations on a product, tool or service as well.

Motivational Monday #43: Confident & Comfortable

Just a simple reminder that when we are prospecting for meetings to acquire new business partners we don't just win if we are the best with our services, products and tools. They have to feel confident & comfortable that the pleasure of the move will ought weigh the pain of the move. Most of that peace of mind come from us (you) connecting with them, where they are at. 

As we are out there today keep focused on the connection, hearing what they are saying and being right there. 

Make it a GREAT one!

Motivational Monday #42: Focus on YOUR goal, not what others are doing

Related image

As we are all running our race to win at times we get distracted with what's around us. This was the same case in horse racing, so they started butting blinders on the horses so they didn't look around, but just in front of them. Their focus was on on what was before them and the goals at hand. They couldn't be distracted by what others were doing, they were just focused on running their best race. 

What are we focused on: Our goals and how we are going to achieve them -or- what others in the same race are doing which is taking our focus off of us achieving our goal and putting our best out every day. 

Have an AWESOME day! Don't get distracted by others instead, keep focused on what your goals are and stay on that path.
