I Choose To Become Better

This morning at our sales meeting we had a fantastic speaker Steve Black come and talk to us about Success Training.

He is a National acclaimed speaker and helps people achieve success in business, internet marking, sales and entrepreneurial wealth.

Great information and definitely see why he is so successful. He is engaging, charismatic, witty and has the uncanny ability to motivate both the veteran and the rookie agent.

Agents have choices to become better, you can stay in your safe cocoon and not venture out to try new things or you can learn to break away and lead the pack becoming more relevant to your target audience.

I feel Steve provides value especially in this shifting market. One thing he stressed, don’t listen to people who don’t know anything and are the Debbie downers in this re-balancing market! I wholeheartedly agree and I choose to become better!

           

There are two Steve Black quotes that strongly resonated with me:

      “Don’t fear giving up being average to go for being great.”

      “Rather than wishing it was easier, make a choice to become better!”

Dorie, I find it is important when speakers can inspire us to be better. Now I am also of the mind set you will see a lot more charismatic motivations gurus making a killing as the market changes,Endre

Hi Dorie... Coldwell Banker has a major speaking/training event yesterday in Charlotte, as well. And if I took anything away it's that we choose our paths... regardless of what we are focusing on at any given time.

Dorie, especially in shifting markets, you cannot hang around Debbie downers.  Everything will sell, in ANY market, you just need to know pricing, strategies and positions.

Hi Dorie,
If there are Debbie Downers in the room, I leave the room.  If I was younger, I would find this an exciting time to be in real estate. As it is, I've become too accustomed to retirement.

Love this!  Maybe it's the change of seasons, but I feel the same way.  As a newly installed 1st VP for Women's Council Scottsdale, I'm ready to push my game to another level.  Professionalism, at any stage, in business is highly underrated!  You go girl!
