The Common Denominator of Success
I wanted to share an insightful article with you this week called "The Common Denominator of Success." Originally delivered as a speech by Albert Gray, an accomplished insurance executive, this piece holds a powerful message for those who are serious about reaching their full potential in life.
At its core, the common denominator of success lies in forming the habit of doing things that failures don't like to do. In other words, it means doing what you don't want to do—pushing beyond your comfort zone, tackling tasks that seem daunting, and embracing discomfort. This is the essential muscle that you must build to achieve true success.
While most people gravitate towards what feels natural and comfortable, success requires the opposite approach. Failures avoid the very things that successful individuals have the courage to face. The key difference lies in mindset.
Successful people develop a specific mindset that allows them to take on challenges and pursue actions that most others shy away from. Rather than settling for less or seeking immediate gratification, they make tough choices that lead to long-term well-being.
As the saying goes, "If you do what is easy, your life will be hard. If you do what is hard, your life will be easy."
In our upcoming 12 Weeks of Daily Accountability Calls, beginning on Wednesday, July 5th, we will focus on cultivating the mindset necessary to tackle what you don't want to do. Specifically in the context of real estate, this includes living in harmony/ not being attached to the outcome, time blocking, leveraging your CRM, building processes, mastering tactical empathy, understanding your numbers, and making informed decisions.
Now, it's important to acknowledge that you might be unknowingly hindering your own progress. You might be driving with your brakes on, so to speak. Breaking free from self-imposed limitations starts with the following steps:
- Increase self-awareness: Take the time to understand your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
- Develop self-belief and confidence: Embrace the truth that you are good enough.
- Let go of magical thinking: Release the notion that everything will work out just because you want it to.
- Release fear-based thinking: Recognize that there is often nothing to fear.
- Embrace discomfort over ease and comfort: Get comfortable being uncomfortable.
- Stop procrastinating: Start taking immediate action on tasks you know you need to do.
- Give up bad habits, particularly those that hinder your progress, namely CHASING.
Remember, this transformation won't happen overnight or by chance. It requires deliberate effort and accountability. This is where coaching comes into play—to keep you on track and hold you accountable for bridging the gap between knowing and doing.
Just imagine what you could truly achieve if you tested and challenged your self-imposed limitations. The possibilities are endless.
