Raising The Bar By Doing Hard Things! 5 Hard Things You Can Do To Improve Your Business And Your Life!
Have you ever had a full circle moment? A moment that tied choices that are weighing on your mind and provided you the answers needed to make a hard decision. I have been evaluating my real estate business direction recently in an attempt to build a business plan for my lasting future as a REALTOR©. In coming off my best year ever in 2009 I hesitate in making changes, but realize that in these tough economic times you must adapt to survive and never fear change.
My full circle moment was yesterday during our church worship service. For the past fifteen years since I accepted Jesus as my savior I have prayed for guidance with all major decision in my life. My business decisions are no different, I ask for guidance through prayer. This afternoon my prayers were answered through a very unique message, brought to us by the youth of our church. This message was on 'Raising The Bar By Doing Hard Things' and was based on the book Do Hard Things by twin brothers Alex and Brett Harris. This book was written for teens and challenges them to rebel against the status quo and exceed expectations that limit them. We can learn a lot form the main points of this book that can be applied to our real estate business and our lives.
I learned 5 hard things that I plan to do to improve my real estate business and life, I thought I would share them with you. Maybe we can all grow together.
1. Do things that are outside your comfort zone.
2. Do more than is expected or required of you.
3. Do things that are too big to accomplish on your own.
4. Do things that have no immediate 'payoff'.
5. Do things that challenge the norm. Think outside the box.
May you be inspired to Do Hard Things!
