I attended a seminar in Markham, Ontario last Monday evening. It was hosted by Julie Flippin of Small Business Savvy. She’s a sales coach who helps small business people discover what is holding them back from achieving success and get on with building a successful business.
It was fascinating to hear her talk about how we all need to fight our demons and become successful by taking action.
Are You Getting at it?
What Julie does is find out why you’re not succeeding. She asks you questions about how you spend your time, who you spend time with, how you victimize yourself, how to rewrite your life story and self-understanding, and what to do about the people who are not enriching your life and career.
But what if you just take a chance and forget all that psychology and rewriting your life stuff? What if instead, you just get at it without thinking? What if you trust your heart about the grand results, lifestyle, and freedom you are capable of creating? What if you disregarded fear and took a chance?
Getting Past Failure by Associating with the Right People
If you’ve been with the wrong people, as we all have, you know how they can sap your strength and diminish your confidence. I want to remind you that success changes everything. Your confidence rises as you build success, and as you get feedback from great people. If they don’t support you, they are toxic. Finding good associates or others who support your goals and who appreciate what you offer them is vital. Brains, expertise, technique, and hard work will only get you so far.
Let Others Help You Improve
Sometimes attending a big event gives you the sense of camaraderie of being with people in your profession. You gather energy, ideas, enthusiasm, and your mind and heart begin to soar. I’ve attended big conventions in Boston, San Diego, Dallas, and Toronto and you do get a bit of euphoria going for you afterward. These are those moments where you can launch yourself to your full potential.
Brian Buffini is hosting a real estate convention in Toronto on Dec 3rd. It’s $95 and a good way to hear some articulate real estate pros give you motivation, direction, process, and tips on improving your realtor marketing results. There are plenty of speakers covering everything from social media to confidence building. Let me know if you’re going.
Of course, if you already know you need to do digital marketing to build your business, then you could just get at it! You have the answer — go with your heart and your head will thank you.
Brian Buffini emphasizes a knowledge of money (or do you just need to value money more?)
