Today is the last day of 2018...it's never too late to finish strong

I should have followed up with that last client a while ago...it's never too late to reconnect

I wish I would have practiced my farming presentation more...it's never to late to start today

I could have reached a higher level than I did...it's never too late to achieve it

I hope we all get the picture here. It's NEVER too late to pursue, to achieve what you want. Yes, we could have done it differently, sooner or another way, but starting now and going for is always an option if we really want it. It may be tougher, but you are tough and can do it.

Motivational Monday #100: Perseverance

Image result for perseveranceAs we are wrapping up the end of the year it's important that we don't end it, but use it to keep building and moving forward. E.N.D. Effort Never Dies.

Others may be slowing and that can be used as an excuse or we can look at it as a mere obstacle. We overcome obstacles everyday. You can do it. it may take longer, we may have to learn, stretch & grow along the way, but as long as you are willing and take steps you will achieve it. Keep pressing onward to connect with those you already know and also build connections with the people you don't. Growing you base is essential for growth. Doing this you'll hear more no's, don't let that get you down. N.O. Next Opportunity. Keep pursuing opportunity with perseverance and you can't be stopped.

Motivational Monday #99: I got 99 problems but ________ isn't one

Image result for best practicesWhat is the one thing that you absolutely crush it at? Think about it. Why do you think that is the thing that you own, you rock and is your go-to when you need to win? How did you get to be so great at that thing...is that something that you can replicate with something else so then you become absolutely excellent at another? Don't forget to own your strengths and put them to work daily. Yes, improving our weaknesses is a must as well, but don't forget your strengths and ROCK IT!!

Motivational Monday #98: "On Call"

Image result for on call
Yesterday at church they talked about if we were "On Call" to step into a moment when it presented itself even if it wasn't convenient or it was the "right" time for us. It resonated with me on many levels. The one I wanted to share today was for work and business development. 

We may be leaving a meeting and chatting on the way out making small talk with an agent. In that small talk they could mention a hurdle or a success in their business. We could respond with "It'll get better" or "Way to go on the success". OR we could step up and into the conversation and make it meaningful by having a thoughtful response like "What do you think is missing" OR "What actions do you attribute to that success". From there we can keep going, have a meaningful conversation and engage with them. From there we have the opportunity to bring value to them, and begin a relationship. 

It's up to all of us to lean in and be "On Call" when opportunities present themselves. I encourage each one of us to think about and act this week. 

Let's rock it team.
