I was going through some old groups that I thought were inactive and found this in The Secret Group. The plan was to leave groups that were not current or had been taken over by content not relevant to the topic. Instead I found this wonderful post that is so worth sharing!! good stuff!
7 Practices for a Good Future:
Our pastor spoke from Philipians on Sunday morning and challenged us with these 7 practices for the new year, so I took notes.
1. Speak with confidence and in a positive fashion. I want to encourage people in 2011. Customers and clients alike look to us as professionals and authority figures to help them through the purchase or sale of a home. We have knowledge and we need to be confident of what we know and put it to good use for their benefit!
2. Don’t be selfish, think of others first. (Phil 2:13) I think our society has had enough of the “me” generation and it’s time for all of us to consider others around us, more than ourselves. This alone, if properly conducted, could create world peace!
3. Do everything without complaining. (Phil 2:14) No one likes a whiner. I spoke to an agent today that just whined more than took action and it drives me crazy! If you have a job to do, just get it done!
4. Rejoice! (Phil 4:4) There is nothing wrong with smiling and rejoicing along the way. God has blessed us with many great things. We should be grateful and happy. There’s also nothing wrong with rejoicing or celebrating a victory in your business!
5. Learn to forget the past and move on! (Phil 3:12) Often times we can learn from our past, but we need to learn to move forward. The rear-view mirror is there to glance at once in a while, but not to stare at while you are trying to go forward!
6. Think good thoughts. (Phil 4:8) We are what we think. If we dwell on negative thoughts or things that are not healthy, that’s what we will become. Think on good things!
7. Have a “Can-Do Attitude!” (Phil 4:13) Be confident that you have abilities and can take action to make something happen. If you make excuses, you may as well stay in bed. “Can’t” will never win the battle over “Try!”
