Success Means Asking the Hard Questions - Even of Yourself!

Mortgage and Lending with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp Louisiana NMLS#2289 Equal Housing Lender NMLS 69996

This week, I have been focused on preparing for a gathering in a few days with my team.   My team's success is extremely important to me.  I know that for them to achieve success - personally and in business, they have to be willing to ask (and answer) themselves the hard questions. 

Before we gather in a few days, I have asked my team members to take a good hard look at their life, business and their daily disciplines and ask themselves these questions:


1.  Where am I now?

Where do I want to go?

What changes, if any, need to be made to fill in the gap from where I am now to where I want to go?

4. What are the skills I need, personally, or for my business?

5. What attitudes do I need to change?

As we begin formulating our  2012 individual and team business plans, these are just a few of the questions the team members must ask themselves.


It is only after a person has a crystal clear picture of WHAT they want in their life, WHY they want it, and WHERE they are currently, that they can begin to set goals and list the strategies they plan to implement to reach those goals and dreams.

What about you? Would asking these questions to yourself help you to formulate a business plan that works?

I did alot of soul searching when I was at a turning point. To my surprise, I spent my whole life wanting SUCCESS, I was actually afraid of it. Afraid of what it might do to me. It was until I understood that, that it liberated myself. Mary Williamson's poem from Return of Love took me to the next level of my business.
