Motivational Monday...Everything You Need


How often do we say...If only I had a larger marketing budget so I could buy leads?  Or...if only we had the contacts the other agents had, we’d have more listings?

You may not ever ask yourself this but I’ll bet there have been times when we play the “if only” game. 

This weekend I watched a clip of Ron Rivera...Coach of the Washington Redskins ...oops Washington football team) give a rousing speech to his team after they won their game over the Seattle Seahawks. 



What he told them could apply to any of us at any time in our work or personal lives…

 

"Everything we need is in this room. Everybody in this room we need," 



What he said has been said before but it certainly bears repeating over and over again.

 

It’s easy and human to want to place the reason for something not going right or our way on an outside source. Or to look outward for what we need to win or accomplish our task.  In some situations, that may be true. 

 

But if we’re to grow and learn, it’s important to understand that often, the EXTRA INGREDIENT lies within us or with our team. 

 

What are we doing...or not doing? That’s the key. 

 

What is it that we already possess that will get us what we want?  

 

Look at your strengths...Be honest with yourself and access your areas that need work.

 

 


Gather your inner strengths...you’re on your way!



Everything you need is already inside you. Don’t wait for others to light your fire.  You have your own matches.  Unknown


**BTW- Washington won by 2 points today!

I have been very fortunate in my latter years.  I am very content with what I have or do not have.  And more importantly I know, with no doubts, that it all comes as a result of my own actions.  Certainly not outside circumstances or anothers actions.  It is a rewarding peace of mind.  Mark

Hi Kathy Streib, in a world where there's so much emphasis on material things, it can be very easy to fall for it. Whatever we are in need of is already inside of us, we just have to find the right tools to get it out. Another mistake we often make is to hold on to things that no longer serve us..now is a great time to let them go up in a smoke.

Hi Kathy I so agree - it's all within each and every one of us 'if' we allow it to happen naturally and be lead by intuition or knowingess.  It's been an interesting couple of months, I've been led by intuition A LOT and it's fabulous how things just flow into place all the time.  There is such an ease about it all now.

I agree Carol Williams we have created a society where people look to others for blame and help. 

Nina Hollander, Broker I agree. We have untapped or unused resources within us or our team.

Roy Kelley Thank you and the same to you and Chef Dolores. 

Kat Palmiotti it's that inner push we need. 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I hadn't heard that but I hope so. We did not watch any pro sports last year because we were sick of the B___.

Bill Salvatore - YVP Blog I like Taylor Heinicke. I had no idea he'd been around that long but he looks good. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel good point. We have to trust what we know and what we can do.

Hi Kathy Streib - Ron Rivera is a wise man.  What we have and need is right in front of our noses and all around us.  I stopped saying "if only..." a long time ago.  I thank you for reminding all of us of this.  Happy Monday!

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty If only the Texans had fired the coach before he got rid of DeAndre Hopkins and ruined the team. 

faye schubert they do that because it's a lot easier to control and manipulate people whohave lost the ability to think for themselves.

Joan Cox ahh but what can you do with your website to make them want to sign up??

Grant Schneider I'm sure you see that when you are consulting with companies. 

Will Hamm you showed them how to do it. You did what you had to do to get it done and didn't look to others to do it for you.

That's exactly it Chris Ann Cleland and maybe as a manager you probably helped them to see what their strengths were. 

Aura Alex that's what leaders do...help those on their team see and go after their potential.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho Love that attitude! Sometimes you have to reach inside and do what it takes. If you succeed, it's on you. 

George Souto I can't stand that they're being so utterly ridiculous. Being PC is highly overrated.

Beth Atalay Thank you for the feature in my favorite group. So often we want to buy the shiny new apps or gadgets thinking that is what we need. 

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker that's smart of you to rely on your intuition. It's been around a bit, it has great experience, and it's not let you down.

Hi Kathy:

Ron Rivera is a pretty wise man. And there is lots of wisdom in your post, and the quotes you shared. I suspect we often overthink things, or look for external reasons why things didn't work out.
