Monday Motivation: The 40 Percent Rule

Monday Motivation: The 40 Percent Rule

Monday Motivation, 1.06.2020

Written by: Ashley Gershowitz

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.

David Goggins- The 40 Percent Rule


“Most human beings are only living at 40% of their capability”  Once you push yourself with something you are doing whether it be studying for a big test, taking care of small children all day, trying to stick to a diet or running a marathon the body will get to a point where it says it is done, usually when your exhaustion level, pain level or whatever other feelings you may have is at about 40%. It will transmit it to your mind and then that is when you think you cannot go further.  “At all times of your life, your mind has a tactical advantage over you.”  When you are doing something, and you are uncomfortable and your brain is telling you to stop, figure out why you are uncomfortable.  Then start breaking things down into smaller increments.  If you are at 40%, tell yourself, go to 45%, then 50%, then before you know it, you will be at 100% with your goal conquering your mind and succeeding at what you want to do. 


Don’t be afraid to push yourself. Your mind and body are stronger than you may think.

She came from a team where she worked mainly with Zillow leads and is super excited to now give back to her past clients that have given her so much. She loves helping people find that special house that they can see their future in and create a lasting relationship with her clients.   Her favorite way to see the Richmond area is on foot so feel free to wave if you see her on the road running.
