#MondayMantra - 2018 Part II – Reset, Adjust, Attack

This is a big one folks because we are finally at the halfway mark of 2018!  With that said, I have a whole roadmap planned out for the second half of the year that I am going to share a bit of with you today. 

Hang on, because I’m going to go through a gang load of steps to reset, adjust and attack for the rest of the year, especially since this is such a shifting year for real estate.  Those who prepare prevail!

This mantra also comes right before the holiday break, which I think is super important.  Everyone needs a break, and this is the perfect time to give ourselves one.  Take this time off to regroup, reset, clear your mind and unplug. 

Here are 5 steps I truly believe are worth doing before you set off for the holiday, so that you can come back refreshed and ready to attack.

1-    Toxic clients – Get rid of them this week! They will take you down mentally and physically.

2-    Accept failure – There are certain things, situations and relationships we aren’t going to win.  Know that and let them go. 

3-    Declutter your desktops/ phones – This will help tidy your mind so you can jump back in after the break.

4-    Zero inbox – Return all of those emails and organize them, so when you come back, you have a nice clean slate. 

5-    An issue that blocks you – Learn that thing you’ve been meaning to forever! Master that skill.  It will make you feel like you can conquer anything.

Next, we need to adjust.  I happened to have lunch with a friend who analyzes data for big companies this weekend.  He said, "presume you know nothing about your data and let the numbers guide you."  That really resonated with me.  He went onto explain that a lot of the time when companies fail it's because they go into markets with expectations and think that they know the game and don't trust the data. 

So, make sure to look at your goals and see what is working and see what isn’t.  Trust the data, then move towards that light.  Set monthly, quarterly and yearly goals.  It works! 

And lastly, work on your self-esteem.  Try and do some anonymous acts of kindness without any expectations.  This will significantly increase your self-worth and in turn how well you do in life.

I’ve talked about this a heck of a lot, but that is because it is so essential.  I will leave you with the reminder that having gratitude puts everything in perspective and helps us achieve our goals.  Start your day by making a list and see that you’ve already won.

Remember, take this time off to reset, adjust and then be ready to attack the second half of the year when you get back from holiday. 

Thanks for watching!
