Motivational Monday: Coming or Going? Still looking for direction?

Motivational Monday: Coming or Going? Still looking for direction?We are now almost a month into the New Year, resolutions have come and gone and you lack direction because you still haven't written that dratted Business Plan in order to gage your success for the year.

Do you feel that you are both coming AND going at the same time?

What to do?!

Which way to go?!

Here are some tips to help:

  1. Put your thoughts on paper, you can organize it later
  2. Talk with your broker about realistic goal setting
  3. Find an accountability partner to help meet your goals
  4. Find a book (that inspires you & read it!) on goal-setting
  5. Take a seminar and get excited at the prospects of meeting your goals
  6. Put your plan into action and soon enough, you will find your direction!

 The only direction to go now is UP! It really is up to you!

Wanda--  " " " "  (ditto)  I agree. I agree.  Good post.  We all need to be reminded of the importance of goals, but I like your creative way of getting the point across. 

I will add a few of your tips to my next training class.

Hi Wanda - great Motivational Monday post.  And as I write this the sky is brightening up and the rain has stopped.  Plus I see a beautiful cardinal sitting in a tree outside. So all is good.

I'm moving forward.  I went to a RE/MAX Kickstart sales rally last week and got some good tips.  I can't promise to put thoughts to paper but I may use the memo pad on my Blackberry if I get inspired lol.

Athena still hasn't learned to go in one direction! We keep trying, but she seems to have a mind of her own, but taking your advise is a good one. Having direction in this business can make or break you.

John, Many people are reluctant to puit it on papaer but sometimes a necessary reminder.

You're welcome Lou!

That is certainly true for both aspects of life!

Wanda, you have been checking up on us haven't you! Yep that is us, coming and going at the same time.  Think we will take your advice and start with number 1.  Instead of trying to organize all our thoughts in our heads first and jot em down, then figure the order out.  Thanks.
