Earlier this week I wrote What Motivates you to Be the Best Realtor you Can Be? So please read it if you haven't yet...it'll make more sense if you do! I decided to make it a Two Parter so I could get some feedback before I continued on with my story... AND did get some interesting feedback!
Thats one of the most amazing things about Active Rain -the incredible Contribution the members make....... My Part II was heading in a different direction...and then I had to pause and reflect on the interesting comments.........and how different people interpreted my question in different ways. Actually that one thought....that of 'perspective'... never seizes to create 'wonder' for me.:-)
I was looking for something straight from your 'gut'...deep in your 'spirit'...stuff....something beyond the the basic getting up in the morning because you 'need' to make the 'mortgage payment' - or put the 'food on the table'....Because I believe for most people.........that is NOT ENOUGH....I can tell you that proof is in the pudding!
Some of us are self driven and self motivated.....and have no patience for those that aren't, isn't that true? For you it can be anything from 'being the best you can be - using yourself as a yardstick........to paying for your kids' college, to the thrill of competition...to the pleasure you get from a job well done, or helping a client achieve their dream.
But what about those that aren't feeling their Mojo? Those that not only do not feel motivated...but are having a hard time even getting up in the morning? What can they do to change it? I think there is a general consensus that...we cannot really inspire, motivate or manage them to success....So what then?
Well this is my premise...........I believe that many of us have forgotten how to dream. Either that or we didn't have a dream to begin with - or over time have forgotten what it was. Or put even more simply....Our Dreams just aren't Big Enough to inspire and motivate us. I believe the reason so many Realtors don't get very far is because they don't have an inspiring long term vision that leads them, step-by-step, into the future.
As Victor Hugo said, "There is nothing like a dream to create the future." We need a dream, and we need to dream big!
In business terms, the dream is typically called the Vision, and it defines the final destination of our business. The dream tells you where you are going and becomes, in effect, your North Star.
Maybe.......you just lost sight of your North Star? How do you find it and restart your journey? Any ideas? Any Lost and Found Stories You'd Like to Share?
Stay tuned for Part III - Finding Your North Star :-)
