Leslie Brown on Achieving Our Dreams (IFC S1 R38 entry)
So I have another thing I wrote in my phone's note app two years ago, and fortunately it's about motivation.
(Holy... Wait that's 11:11... 😱😱😱)
Uhm... Okay so this is a screenshot of what I wrote down. I think this was from a YouTube video I watched 2 years ago... I wrote down some of the important things because I was selling insurance then.
And then I started selling properties afterwards...
You know, when you're in sales and the pressure of quotas get to you, you really need all the motivation you can get, otherwise you will break down and give up easily.
Even if you're not in a sales career or are an entrepreneur or a freelancer, motivational and inspirational people are really a big help.
With all the motivational books and videos I've watched/listened to, I'm starting to think that Jesus and the other wise men like Confucius etc were one of those motivational speakers of yore. Don't you think so?
However, even with tons of motivational and inspirational stuff out there that we consume from time to time, if we do not act on improving ourselves, then it's all for nothing. Without acting on what we can do, all those words will just be about someone else. If we do nothing to change ourselves after listening to them, they will just be some people telling us how to be better and successful versions of our future selves and we'll continue being the poor and miserable people that we are.
We all can be motivated into doing something, but over time we will lose the will to continue and see it through. If this happens, it means that we do not have the drive to do what we've been doing even if we think we want/should/need it. It may also mean it's not really what we should be doing.
Before we act, we must first know ourselves more than ever in order to take the best course of action.
What I would suggest is to start with whatever is our weakness. Find out how we can work around it and stop it from stopping us.
Self-sabotage is real, people. We all know how our minds can be our worst enemies. Even if people see how good we are in what we do but if we think what we're doing is not good enough then people might see our lack of confidence in our self. They will either see we are not ready to be successful or we are greedy.
We all decide what we do in our lives. If we don't know what we're doing then we need other people to affirm that which we already know.
Let's watch and learn some more videos of the now successful and rich people and continue learning about ourselves so we can improve our lives one step at a time.
Unfortunately if we're not a people person and we're in sales or if we don't really like sales, we better change our mindset to be successful, otherwise, bye bye sales job. Haha. ( The big commissions say bye bye back. )
Aside from changing our mindset, this is where sales training should come in too. If we don't have any good sales training from expert sales people or any other successful sales mentor, then we will also fail.
Eherm, going back to the motivation topic, again, our life is a product of our own decisions and actions. If we don't take responsibility for our lives then good luck and hasta la vista.
By the way, found that video I got the notes from. Enjoy and be inspired!
