Getting Motivated #3

Mortgage and Lending with Bay Equity, LLC 770-634-4021 NMLS #206275 GA 25689

dream,getting motivatedOne of the easiest ways to get motivated is to have a very specific dream.   Be as brief yet as specific as you can.

I remember reading a story about Arnold Schwarzenegger. Someone once asked him what he was going to do after he finished his career as a bodybuilder. His answer was simple. "I am going to be the biggest Hollywood box office star in history."  How many would really share that type of goal with a stranger?  How many actually share their dreams with their family and friends? 

The fact is, he went on to do just that.  There is an expression that many have used, "fake it until you make it”.  To stay motivated you need to live the life or the dream that you want.  To be truly successful, you need to hold yourself accountable. It also doesn't hurt to have someone else as your accountability partner for the times when you need a little push.


What's your dream that will keep you motivated?

Yes, that "accountability partner" is very important - more than we know. Best wishes for success.

Believing in himself is what got Arnold where he is today - having confidence that you're going to be successful separates the successful from the not so successful :)

My dream for 2012 is a fabulous composite deck that I can enjoy my wooded views from.  I can close my eyes and see how it looks.  Had the contractor out to give me a price so I know where to aim in my sales goal.

Having a specific goal can be one way to get motivated.  Having a support system is also important.

It is all about the way one thinks about something or someone.

Change the way you think, Change your life and everyone else around you.
