Monday Morning Message | Out of the “Zone”

I love this Brian Tracy quote, “Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”  We live in a world where we can learn 24/7 if we want to. Unfortunately, a lot of people stay neatly in the lane of their comfort level their entire lives. The result is that they don’t really live the life of their dreams. Without stretching their goals, without trying out new skills and mindsets, it’s easy to get stuck in a status quo that’s not really meeting your potential. To get what you’ve always wanted? Means we have to do things we’ve never done. Will you always get it right? Of course not. Here’s the thing to remember: There is never really a fail if you’re learning.  “FAIL” re-framed means “first attempt in learning.” The competition is constantly reinventing themselves because they want that higher level of success. That feeling of creating a more balanced life. The world keeps changing and to get where you want to go—be willing to step out of your “zone.”

Something to Think About

We’re in the middle of an extraordinary summer. It’s hard to think about taking time out to try new things on for size when we’re balancing family and personal time at such a high level. There are little ways to make adjustments though. Sign up for an Audible account and listen to one or two new books each month. They are perfect learning tools for busy agents on the go. Sign up for training sessions that will cap our summer and kick off the fall market as well. Watch for details.

Weekly Activity 

Pop by month, round two! Choose five valued clients and stop in to say thank you for their business. The 12th is National Pecan Pie day if you’d like to bring clients a tasty treat! A beautiful bouquet of summer daisies would be another fun idea. No time for a visit? Drop a card in the mail with a gift certificate to the local ice cream or frozen yogurt shop and thank them for being “cool customers.”
