Things happen. Some are good. Some are not so good. You can only control yourself and how you respond to what happens around you.
You control your sphere. If there are negative or nasty people in your sphere, think about what value they add to you and your life. You may find they don't need to be in your in your sphere.
Take responsibility. Stop blaming others. Be responsible and accountable for your actions. If you don't like something, change it. You do not have to stay stuck. Stop blaming everyone else for your trials and tribulations.
Focus on what matters. "If only" only exists in your mind. Things happen that are out of our control but we can control how we respond to what happens. A buyer jumps off your ship and puts in an offer with a listing agent. Wish them luck and move on.
Life happens. Live and love the process of living it. Look for the good things in your life and build on them. Be strong. Look at your successes. Treasure them. When things didn't work out, put it behind you and move forward.
You can't get where you are going without a clear destination. You need a goal. Actions must fit the goal. Every Sunday morning over coffee, I do my weekly plan by day and list tasks that don't have a day associated with it. When I finish my daily tasks, I look to that list and start working on those items in order of importance and time constraints. If you want to earn $100,000 this year, you must figure out how many sales you need, how many contacts you need for one sale and do the math. Don't start complaining about not being able to reach that goal in October of the year. Start in October to plan for next year, check your monthly tasks and see that you are on track. Look monthly and quarterly. If you are not on track, fix it now. We just finished the 1st quarter of the year. You should be 25% of the way to that yearly goal. Break things down into smaller tasks and account for them regularly.
Life brings challenges. While we must deal with them all the time, we must take time for ourselves and those important to us. Do for others what you can do. Check of those you care for. It's not all about you. Be known for always being there for those in need. It is good for you soul. Take a vacation. After the long year of CoVid, I decided that this year I would take at least three week or more trips. I've booked two beach weeks already and planning the third right now. I can't cruise so I will be driving to my destinations. I vowed to take 1 three day break a quarter. I vowed to take off at least one FULL day a week just for me to do what I want to do! I could watch TV, read, walk, shop or do anything that suits me on that day. I'm on track with all three of these goals. I did not account for daily things when I planned but I added to my plan to take one hour each day just for me. I'm doing a good job with this, too. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's necessary! We are partners, spouses, parents, grandparents, someones child, neice or nephew or brother/sister. But we must take care of ourselves. No one else has that responsibility.
Be the best you that you can be, today and everyday!
