As entrepreneurs, we have to find ways to keep ourselves motivated. It’s true that you take on the traits of those you associate with; as successful as they are because birds of a feather flock together. If you want to be successful and stay motivated you most be sure to connect with that type of people you want to be. For instance, if you want to be the best real estate agent, find the most successful agent you can and network with them. It calls for a little time and research, but you can do it. Of course there are those folks who cross our path organically, these are my favorites.
These folks get it, they live their lives out loud. Their always reaching out to help others. They usually have a story and their story is always inspiring. I have been fortunate to have a few of them in my circles. They are sent by God at exactly the right time and always, always leave in you a better place than before the entered your realm. They are usually dynamic and shine as bright as any star. They never try t sell you, they just share their knowledge and just by a conversation with them you feel re-enforced,re- energized. Sometimes, they just ask “What can I do for you?” I live to meet these people. I pray that I am one of them.
I was talking with my daughters, and one of them mentioned a comment an associate of hers had made about me. It was such a great feeling to know someone admired what I do and what I stand for. I learned long ago to not bombard folks with all the information about myself. I enjoy getting to know about them and then offering a collaborative idea t help the both of us. This is the first step to becoming successful; help as many as you can because in essence, you are helping yourself.
So, improve your skill set, think as successful people do, let others share their story, help as much as you can, share your own story, watch the company you keep and stay on your path. Most importantly, stay positive.
