Everything is Possible

February 28th, 2011

Is it just me, or does anyone else get just a tad bit nauseous when they hear the word goal? These writers make it sound so easy, as if all you have to do is think one up, write it down on a post-it note and presto… It happens!

I believe reaching a goal has more to do with control. For example, if you got out of bed this morning and went to work because you wanted to, then you are in control of money. If you got out of bed and went to work this morning because you had to, then money is in control of you. It is almost impossible to control a goal that is controlling you. The bottom line effect is lack of money. The cause is thinking. Albert Einstein once said, “A problem cannot be solved at the level of consciousness in which it occurs.”

So here is the message that I really want to share with you. It is essential that we raise our level of consciousness to “Everything is Possible;” not just the goals we set for ourselves, but over and beyond… Everything is Possible. These are very powerful words that only hold true if you are brave enough to keep your thinking in forward motion. I refuse to sit on a mental couch that only offers a pessimistic view. I will not listen to anyone’s predictions except for my own because my prediction is that we have the ability to be more successful this year more than any other year that we have lived so far. I am the only one who knows what I am capable of. And the same goes for you.

As we create our success for 2011, looking back is not helpful nor is entertaining thoughts like:

  • First Quarter is notoriously slow
  • The housing market is slow to recover
  • The economy is in the toilet

Those predictions only come true to those who are limited by them. Instead, reach for things that we have never reached for before…

Be fearless in earning NEW business. Take a swing even if you miss. Jump even if you fall, and keep getting back up even if you fear that you look stupid.

Be determined in hitting your daily activity numbers every day. Make more calls and even better calls every day. If you made 8 calls yesterday, make 10 today. Never-ever stop short of asking for what you want in life. “Everything is Possible.”

Facilitate action. Encourage more buyers to buy and more sellers to sell at a reasonable price. Certain thoughts and influences cause many of us to take action…it is human nature. Facilitate action by incorporating these responders:

  • Savings
  • Limited offer
  • Flattery
  • FREE
  • Others want it
  • Low risk
  • One of a kind
  • Makes life easier
  • Easy to buy, use or own
  • Highly recommended
  • Trusted
  • You can’t have it
  • Recognition
  • Status
  • Vision of payback
  • Fear of loss
  • Needed by others
  • Added value
  • Move ahead
