For the past 6 years working as a self motivated Mortgage Consultant in Frisco Texas, and targeting a goal where 90% or more of my business comes by referral, I have had to search and find what “gets me going in the morning” to meet that goal. In doing this, I started a Word Document titled, “Motivational Strategies and Thoughts for a Better Life”.
In this document I collect motivational phrases, words and phrases that help express myself in a unique way, and strategies that a leader can use to self motivate and maximize potential. Transferring information to longer term and permanent memory works best for me by writing them down. So, I’ve written today in my word document and writing it here to share and double up on my writing it down for permanent memory. Here was today’s record. I hope that it can help any one person reading it today as well.
