Monday Motivation: The Lemon Imagery
Monday Motivation, 1.28.19
Written by: Mike Goleski
Every Monday, The Rogers-Long Team meets for one of its two weekly meetings. The Monday meeting always ends with “Monday Motivation” in which a few minutes are spent listening to one team member presenting a quote, a quick reading from a book, a scene from a movie, or anything else they find motivating to provide a “spark” to the whole team on a Monday morning.
So I’m up this week for Monday Motivation. I was trying to think of something different other than words of encouragement. Not that there is anything wrong with words of encouragement. But I wanted to do something different. So I came up with “Visualization imagery”.
Believe it or not, the mind is the most powerful tool in your body. Think of this, why is it when its daylight out you have no problem going for a walk in the woods? Now picture that same walk after the sun goes down and its pitch dark. Not so much fun, right? It’s your imagination. Your mind says stop, don’t go into the woods its dark out and I’m not quite sure what’s in there. We know it’s safe and beautiful but that little voice in our heads says “I wouldn’t go in there”!
Now take a professional golfer like Tiger Woods. He takes his practice swing, visualizes his shot, approaches the ball and bang! Hits the ball. He is visualizing how he wants the ball to go and where he wants it to land. So let’s take that same formula and apply it to everyday life. You want to ask your boss for a raise, but are afraid of what he might say. You have to make that call to ask the doctor how my numbers look. You don’t want to ask someone if they knew of someone who was looking to buy or sell a home, would they refer you? There are a million examples and all are legitimate. But the next time you hear that little voice, just think of something positive and go after what use to scare you.
I have included a link to a Visualization Imagery that I hope you will enjoy.
Mike Goleski, a Realtor with The Rogers-Long Team, started selling real estate in 1999. The RLT was thrilled to welcome Mike to the team in February of 2018 due to his competitive edge and disciplined attitude, which he learned from serving 6 years in the US NAVY as a SeaBee. In his spare time, you can find Mike on the golf course or even behind home plate umpiring an NCAA baseball game (you read that right!).
