Today I realized that I have been stagnant for almost a month maybe even longer. I have been in a rut and either I haven't noticed it or I'm complacent to be there.
I haven't been marketing myself with the methods that I know succeed......I've been lazy, posting blogs and writing comments when I could be shaking hands and meeting new clients. Activerain has helped me get some potential clients but not anything that I can count on as "guaranteed" paychecks.
Now this guy is happy....I'll bet he's not in a rut. No matter how successful you can be or are one realization has occured to me over the past few days. If I stay stagnant too long I will learn how to "live" with my situation and try to create happiness in something that I may not truly be happy doing.
When was the last time you cold called? My last one was over two weeks ago and it wasn't even a cold call, it was a luke warm call.
When was the last time you started a conversation in a grocery store or other business trying to strike up potential friendships or clients? Mine was over two months ago.
I've kept my head down buried into the internet, new listings, activerain, dealing with lifes little problems and my own issues far too long. Today is a day for change.
Ever heard the quote "Today is the first day of the rest of my life." That applies to me today and is worth considering for all of us. Some of you may be reading this and applying portions of the commentary to you and others may not.......here's a quote that can apply to all of us given to me this morning by my father who always seems to know how to wake up my internal drive.
"There is no guarantee of tomorrow, don't regret the time you spend today."
