This past week I went back to Fort Collins CO for the 5th time, and spent 3 more days with The Group Inc, Larry Kendall's organization. With each visit I there I pick up just a bit more information to sharpen the saw so to speak. Still striving to master the skills need to rise to the levels of success they have there.
The Group Inc., has proven systems that have taken them from terminal normality to a level where they have achieved an atmosphere of committed excellence. No where have I been exposed to that level of commitment outside of the Army Special Forces. Therefore, the reason I participate so much so often is that likes minds attract.
If you haven't experienced this I strongly recommend to all "Professional Realtors" to take the CRS Ninja Sales class in order for you to understand just the basics to master then participate in the master plan.
As part of the process I am updating my classes that I teach to our company. Through coaching it is my objective to establish that atmosphere of committed excellence. The process is relatively simply that had I found this style of business 10 years ago with it philosophy of unlimited potential as a rookie there is no telling the heights that I could have reach for in the same time period.
It all stems from Mastery by Stewart Emory
MASTERY in one's career and consciousness growth simply requires that we constantly produce results beyond and out of the ordinary. Mastery is the product of consistently going beyond our limits. For most people, it starts with technical excellence in a chosen field and a commitment to that excellence. If you are willing to commit yourself to excellence, to surround yourself with things that represent this and miracles, your life will change. (When we speak of miracles, we speak of events or experiences in the real world which are beyond the ordinary.)
It is remarkable how much mediocrity we live with, surrounding ourselves with daily reminders that the average is the acceptable. Our world suffers from terminal normality. Take a moment to assess all the things around you that promote your being "average". These are the things that keep you powerless to go beyond a "limit" you arbitrarily set for yourself. The first step to mastery is the removal of everything in your environment that represents mediocrity, removing those things that are limiting. One way is to surround yourself with friends who ask more of you than you do. Didn't some of your best teachers, coaches, parents, etc.?
Another step on the path to mastery is the removal of resentment toward masters. Develop compassion for yourself so that you can be in the presence of masters and grow from the experience. Rather than comparing yourself and resenting people who have mastery, remain open and receptive; let the experience be like the planting of a seed within you that, with nourishment, will grow into your own individual mastery.
You see, we are all ordinary. But a master, rather than condemning himself for his "ordinariness", will embrace it and use it as a foundation for building the extraordinary. Rather than using it as an excuse for inactivity, he will use it as a vehicle for correcting yourself, which is essential in the process of attaining mastery. You must be able to correct yourself without invalidating or condemning yourself, to accept results and improve upon them. Correct, don't protect. Correction is essential to power and mastery.
I challenge you to become more than who you are
