The Best Motivational Movie Ever, 2013 – GET RESULTS

It has been a long held belief of mine that one has to be motivated in all walks of life or the world becomes a different place. Life without effort is a life full of regret.

Family, health, fitness, education, finance, business, employers, employees, the law, etc., etc., all test the mind and its normal functioning. There are times when it all appears far too hard and it is natural to question one’s own inner strength. If one is not motivated these items will destroy normal functioning of many brains with, sadly too often, devastating consequences.

“Believe in yourself, because if you don’t, no others will”

 

With this in mind I thought I’d share this truly inspirational video with agents:

Don’t let others tell you that you can’t achieve your dreams. If you have a dream then ‘GO AFTER IT’ and inch forward towards your own goals, NOT those of others.

Set your own desires, live your life on your terms and go after what you want…and stop getting in your own way with self-limiting beliefs and freedom-sucking fears that always appear just at that moment you were about to take the next step towards your goals and stop you. We all have fears. Some cripple us into non-action, whilst others excite us in to achieving incredible against the odds results.

Make a vow to yourself to…

Take Control of Your Fears

…and RUN TOWARDS YOUR FEARS!

Remember what Henry Ford said,

“whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right”

This statement applies to life in so many ways.

We often associate motivation with sport and there are truly some great sportspeople with stories that will motivate the slowest of all. The desire to achieve or win is paramount to the whole position of motivation. In the movie we see a football team being “coached” to play inch by inch, play by play and fight their way back from a losing position. It is when all the inches are added up that the difference will be recorded as winning or losing. The team is propelled to “die for each inch” and to never give in.

Above is the inspirational cartoon that you may have seen before (involving the frog in the mouth of the pelican, about to be swallowed with the frog holding to the throat of the bird with grim death in order to restrict it from letting that happen). How better to be motivated – life or death.

Understand That Your Personal Determination and Mental Toughness Will Be Questioned Continuously!

Mental strength is vital to motivation in order to take you to the top. If you want something badly enough – go get it.

In this video, Mrs. J. K. Rowling (bestselling author of “Harry Potter”) noted that

“… some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might well not have lived at all.”

How true!

Personally, adversity is the greatest disruption to a normal life. Health, injuries, death, breakdowns in business practice, deceipt within close quarters and financial stresses really place many pressures upon one’s mind. It is difficult to get motivated at times. As an agent I turn to sport or a hobby such as fishing. Time allows for clear thinking and the appraisal of one’s values in life.

A “repulser” is a handy instrument to the clear mind. Have a physical object or item that you can view when you need to straighten out.  For me, in the past, that merely involved a paper twenty dollar note that was inside the front cover of my diary. This reminded me of some issue of the past and gave me the drive to make sure that it did not happen again.

“If you’ve gotta dream, you’ve gotta protect it”

As an agent you face many obstacles that will deliver volumes of adversity to your surroundings. Many buyers and vendors are making decisions, big decisions, based on adversity. Results are required by desire, death, family situations unknown, the bank, investment requirements, locations, etc. It is how you face and deal with these obstacles that will deliver your desired goals. You need to be motivated or the people with whom you are dealing will pick up on your down day and you will pay the consequences. You will not be the appointed agent or you will not observe the motivation factor of the party and miss the business.

Live in the moment! and…

Get Out There And Give It Everything You’ve Got!

.

Success requires a deal of effort. But it’s worth it. Most humans invariably choose the path of least resistance and this is where a top performer will take advantage of set-backs or any situations with competitors… You are your greatest competitor! Take action, keep motivated and never give up on your dreams.
