Motivational Monday - Accepting Reality & Others in All You do
Of course, external factors have an impact on our motivation levels during our work days, the one thing WE can control is the attitude that we bring to the table each day. On Mondays, I feel strongly about how significant our own attitudes are!
In our business, we all know that Mondays are often our most hectic days - the attorneys and many lenders, surveyors, inspectors…heck, almost all of our team is off over the weekend. Mondays are catch-up days, often requiring our firemen’s hats that day!
Based on my experience as a professional, my own attitude helps increase self-motivation and professional effectiveness, especially when it comes to judgement. Yes, MY judgement of others can impact my self-motivation.
The best advice I can give you this Monday morning is to accept reality and others as they are. Self-motivation begins with having realistic and appropriate expectations of those around you. Circumstances don’t always conform to your agenda. Accepting the circumstances as they are, leads to finding common ground more quickly, being more efficient & achieving the results you set out to achieve.
Accepting others as they are leads to our being better problem solvers - and, after all, isn’t that one of the most important hats we wear?
Happy Monday Everyone!
