THE MYTH OF MOTIVATION... I was talking to the kids' great grandpa recently. He and his wife are in their 80s. They've raised 3 boys and worked all their lives. He built their house on the weekends and in the evenings after work. He didn't go to college and the only reason he started his own company was to have steady work to support his young family. And it was HARD work, physical labor, nothing fancy or glamorous or unique. But all these decades later, we were visiting at their ski condo 🎿 before he and his wife left for their annual (2 month!) visit to their condo in Hawaii ⛰ before spending the summer or their boat 🛳
Talking about reasons why some of my agents don't do what they need to do, it came up that they don't always "feel motivated". I will never forget his response!! Great Grandpa gave a scoffing, albeit genuine laugh and said "What the hell does THAT mean?!" His advice to the new generation of self employed? "If you aren't willing to get up and go to work every day, don't bother." Don't you hate it when the answer is so fucking simple?! Me? I'm getting off the motivation bandwagon. I'm going to make it simple, take life by the horns and do because doing needs to be done. Anyone else up for the challenge?
