Monday Motivation: GROW
Monday Motivation, 1.25.2021
Written by: Kevin Long
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.
In a world that is constantly pulling us in a million different directions, it can be easy to lose sight of our goals and purpose. I find myself needing to re-center my thoughts and actions to get back on track. I have done this in a number of ways. A deep, conscious breath is something I have used to calm and reset, driving in silence to focus, gratitude calls after a tough day. Prior to the start of the year, all of us on the RLT sat down and set some goals (the BIG 3!). They are posted on the backside of my office door to keep them in front of me, not only physically but also seeing it everyday helps me stay sharp mentally. This year I am breaking my goals down to one over arching theme. One word. Mine is GROW (still crossing my fingers for that growth spurt). I will focus to GROW in all aspects of my life. I will GROW my connection and love with my wife as we embark on our first full year of marriage. I am constantly GROWING my mind and mentality through reading and podcasts focused on self improvement or something I enjoy learning about . I am GROWING my discipline and physical fitness through 5AM workouts. I am focusing on GROWING my business and relationships with the help of accountability partners, teammates and clients. I am sharing my knowledge and time with other real estate agents to help them GROW, which helps the company GROW and in turn that helps me GROW as a leader, mentor and owner.
What is the one overarching word or theme that you need to focus on to impact you spiritually, physically, emotionally, relationally, mentally and financially? This is a word that should be able to translate into each of those categories. Give, risk, trust, purpose, love, commitment, embrace, push, persistence, care, control, appreciate, passion, faith, respect. What is your word to keep you focused or to re-center yourself? What word brings your goals into focus? What word is going to help you GROW?
