Self-motivated business people often become consumed with their work, especially in the world of sales professionals, whose compensation is based on performance. Additionally, the income of Independent Contractors is not barred by a ceiling of achievement. A sky is the limit earning potential is an easy addiction for talented agents, who love what they do. I don't think I'm necessarily a talented Realtor, yet I am extremely driven and fortunate that my wife and business partner, is one of the best in the business. The more time I invest in our real estate business, the more it grows and consequently, the more of a challenge it becomes to stay focused on what really matters in life. I needed to listen close to what Jairek Robbins, the talented and inspirational son of his larger than life father, Tony Robbins, had to say on June 7, 2012.
I was invited to attend an REO mastermind event in Denver, Colorado by a colleague at Keller Williams Realty. Jairek, being friends with the president of the group, agreed to be the final guest speaker of what turned out to be a very productive day of masterminding on everything from foreclosures to Short Sales. Little did I know at the time that Jarek's speaking engagements are somewhat like stealth missions to change lives. I'm not sure I am in the right state of mind to live my mission or even sure that I'm ready to clearly define my mission in life. That said, I did pay close attention to his message and plan to prepare myself for change.
The theme of Jairek's presentation was exactly this, the question or questions we ask ourselves each morning about our lives or life in general is what define us in that moment. For instance, if we question our very existence on a daily basis, then we are likely to walk around in a state of constant uncertainty and stifle our ability to find fulfillment in life. If your question has not set you on a path to success, Jairek simply states that all you need to do to change your life, is to change your question. The literal formula for this life altering equation is calculated in this order: Your questions determine what you focus on, what you focus on you feel, how you feel is how you show up, how you show up determines your results. Thus, change your question + change your results = change your life!
There are three keys to controlling your state of mind:
- What you focus on you feel.
- How you move your body, will determine how you feel.
- What you say to yourself is how you will feel.
- Did I really love?
- Did I really live?
- Did I really matter?
