Hi Team...

Yesterday, I did a talk for an amazing group of real estate professionals with Douglas Elliman, led by an amazing leader, Ingrid Carlos, in Boca Raton, FL....

The theme was simple:

Always Do Your Best and Never Stop Doing The Little Things

Now, this sounds simple.

But, how many of us stop doing the little things that helped us reach our next stop on the success ladder?

Obviously, there are certain things you must stop doing because they are no longer relevant... but there any many little things that people stop doing because they feel they are "better" than those things....

They get lazy in their call backs...

They get lazy in their emails...

They get lazy in their habits...

They forget that "everything matters" and that you are constantly being judged for your actions, most often subconsciously by yourself.

We know when we are doing our best and when are are doing just enough to get by...

We know it deep in our hearts when we are giving something our all and when we are just rinse, washing, and repeating without the passionate fire burning...

We have all been on both ends of the spectrum in our life...

When we get a new gig or promotion, we are super excited and do everything with passion and enthusiasm...

As time goes on, we get comfortable and often less excited... and that my friends is the issue...

I believe every morning you need to COACH-YOURSELF-UP....

That simply means you have to get yourself excited...

Coaching Tip: You must have daily dialogue with yourself that says things like: I am going to win today.. or Today is going to be amazing because I am going to make it amazing...

Do these sayings sound a bit optimistic and maybe even a bit fluffy?.. YES.

But they are good.

They are good for you to hear in a time where so many are thinking negative, defeating thoughts.


Remember that.

You can coach yourself into being the best CEO, Salesperson, Leader by how you talk and coach yourself each day.... prior to engaging in your day.

This is WHY most corporate cultures suffer today...

Too much negative chatter and a true lack of passion and enthusiasm towards cause is often the culprit behind declining culture and less than satisfactory results...

When you coach yourself up each day, your headspace is about what you are going to do... not what you are hoping to do, or wishing to do.

Remember: Life favors that action takers.


Your Coach,
