“It always seems impossible until it’s done,” said Nelson Mandela. Last week we talked about getting out of comfort zones. This week, let’s look at limited thinking – or more to the point – unlimited thinking. Unlocking belief systems is a big part of success. Too often I’ll hear an agent say, “Oh that’s never been done.” Or, “I’m new, I’ll never be able to do that.” Have you ever stopped yourself from taking the next step in your business, just because you believed that you weren’t experienced enough, talented enough or had the right skills? I implore you to shift that limited thinking and try anyway. It’s the fastest way to grow. Get advice if needed. Take a class. Get some guidance. But please, keep looking at impossibilities for what they are – opportunities. Our industry and our markets are ever-evolving. It’s up to us to evolve with them. Make today about possibilities. You might just surprise yourself.
Something to Think About
What’s your VISION for your goals? One amazing way to unlock limited thinking is to create a vision board, or at least capture a picture that represents your goal and keep it with you. Look at it daily. Put yourself in the picture and let your mind help you discover the many ways you can realize that goal.
