For those of you that know me, you know I’m pretty much an open book. And if you really know me, you know that just a few hours ago I crossed an item off my bucket list!
Tonight I rode the Taco Ride. Its a 20 mile bike ride. People do it every week. To most its not a big deal, but to me it was a huge step. I had been wanting to do the Taco Ride for years but was terrified. I could barely ride 3.5 miles without huffing and puffing and once I started training I could not go farther than 9 miles.
But you want to know my secret to actually crossing that item off my list? I TOLD PEOPLE! I made sure everyone around me knew it was a goal of mine. I recruited people to to go with me. I told people I would document my journey online. And before I knew it, I had people coming up and asking me about when I was doing it and how training was going. Now I HAD to do it. I couldn’t back down because everyone would know if I did. And I did it!
So to get down to it…today’s tip is to SPEAK UP! Share your goals with those around you. Create a circle of motivating, inspiring, encouraging people that got your back and can’t wait to see you succeed.
Do you have a goal of closing 30 loans next quarter? Tell your sphere and ask them to help you reach your goal. Do you have a goal of hiring an amazing team member? Tell those around you and ask who they know.
Whatever your goal…let others know. People want to see you succeed. I almost quit. I almost quit several times. I had every good excuse ready to not even start tonight. Then I almost quit a few times on the trail. I was even given a free way out to not have to ride back. But I had an amazing colleague riding with me who pushed me and encouraged me and I could not have made it without her. Why was she there? Because I had told her my goal and she offered to help. She wanted to see me succeed.
So to recap…Talk To Me Baby! Talk to everyone! Share your goals with your mentors, your sphere of influence, your family and whoever else is willing to listen!
