Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead
I hope that you had a fabulous weekend and that you are having a very successful 2017. As we enter into the month of May, it’s time for a checkup! Traditionally, most agents will have earned 50% of their annual income by the end of May. What was your goal for 2017? Are you halfway there? If so, congratulations! If not, what will you do differently for the remainder of this year, to achieve your goals? They could be personal or business goals. Market research shows that most people will set a goal in January, but very few people can tell you what that goal was when it gets to this time of the year. Why? Because if you are not reviewing your goals on a regular basis, or have a plan of action that you are following, it’s easy to forget. When you see the impact that achieved goals can have in your life, you look at goals differently.
Something to Think About
Where are you in relation to your goals? If you can’t remember, or did not set a goal for this year, ask this very simple question: Am I happy with where I am in my personal and professional life? If not, it’s not too late to set some goals for 2017. Think of it as a decision to do something different, so you can have different results in the future.
Review your goal. Are you on track? If not, what can you do to get on track for the remainder of the year? If you did not set a goal, that’s fine, but is there a change that you would like to see in your life? If so, what would be the appropriate goal, as well as the action plan to accomplish that goal?
Words of Wisdom
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Albert Schweitzer
Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them. Jack Canfield
Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort. Franklin D. Roosevelt
Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude. Dale Carnegie
