Are you feeling stuck on making a decision about something pretty big in your life? Having trouble deciding what to do? I know that feeling as I personally go through that quite a bit and I believe we all do. Decision making paralysis is what I like to call it…Read More
Had an awesome opportunity to help a friend this morning when she Facebook messaged me and said she was having trouble landing a job, she asked for my advice, here is my response, hope it helps you too…Read More
When I meet a salesperson and they are very prim and proper, a little dull and little stale I tend not to buy from them. I love all people, but I love the ones with a little crazy streak in them, the funny ones, the quirky ones, the PASSIONATE ONES! I love people that truly let their freak flag fly, in life and in business.
I have a good friend, who is a client of mine too, who is over the top. He helps people buy BMW's for a living and he is a genuine one of a kind. Every time I talk to him I laugh. He is a bit crazy, a bit goofy and a whole lotta fun. He makes me feel normal. And you know what, I buy from him, I refer him and I genuinely do it with fervor and complete confidence. He is not only fun, he is great at what he does.
I've often wondered if I was to goofy or to out there for people. I often post what I consider motivational videos to the web and sometimes as I do, I wonder, should I hit send, is this too much?? No I say to myself, let it all out there, be who you are, if you are not you are robbing the world of your charisma and energy! I am not being annoying (in my opinion!) or weird, I am being me, a full on hardcore positively energized original human being. I live my life with passion and 10,000 megawatt energy (that is my affirmation!). It is that originality that attracts people to us, that fun, that energy, that smile, that genuine PASSION for life and what you do!
So, be who you are, let yourself be the original you with no regrets. You are amazing, you are awesome, you are a one of a kind, kick ass, energized passionate human being and you deserve all this life has to give! When you are genuine and authentic people will love you and when people love you and want to be around you you will watch your star rise! Don't tone it down, TONE IT UP!
Have an incredible day!
I believe that we are all warriors, built with amazing greatness and power within us, we have what it takes to live incredible lives! But we will face struggles; that is a fact.
In 2009, I went up against a major obstacle, embezzlement. Over the course of a 3 year period my controller, someone I was trusting with our money, had been stealing. Over $500,000! My CFO was supposed to be on top of it, but he wasn't. It was a huge blow. Coming off some amazingly successful years, I brushed it aside because I knew I could make more money. But then in January of 2010 I lost the top agent with my company, and then preceded to lose over half of my 70 agents. I kept going, but then came blow #3, divorce. I sank into a deep depression believing my life was over. I barely had the will to live.
In your life and in your business, you will come up against great obstacles, great difficulties and great tragedies. You cannot give up though. Many people stop going after their dream when they face adversity. They believe that their vision is just not to be. They become stagnant and lose their drive and passion. This is a normal feeling. I wanted to give u - as a matter of fact, there were many days I contemplated not moving forward at all, dark days.
If you are facing major struggles, do not give up. There is a plan for you. There is hope, all is not lost when something is lost, just that something is gone. There is more for you, better times lie ahead if you just keep pushing and drawing strength from your struggles.
I am thriving again. It took 3 long years, but my life now is better than I could have ever imagined. My vision is back. I have a beautiful fiancé who I am deeply in love with, my company is thriving, I am healthy, happy and whole. I wanted to give up, but I never did. You cannot give up either, you have a bigger, brighter future, there is a more amazing plan for you!
Have a kickass day! cg
