Do you have a high level of motivation?
Over the course of the last 30+ days I have been reading books recommended from Danelle Delgado, my coach and mentor. Although several books have been read, the one I am currently reading/listening to on replay is Grant Cardone’s book The 10X Rule. Over the next 31 days, I will be taking a deeper look at each of these qualities commonly found in successful people. Here we go…Have a High Level of Motivation.
21. Have a High Level of Motivation – Motivation refers to the act or state of being stimulated toward action. To succeed, it is critical that you be stimulated, excited, and driven to some action or actions. This isn’t the kind of enthusiasm that lasts for a few hours, a day, or a week; it’s based on what you do each day to stimulate yourself toward actions and inspire yourself to keep going. Highly successful people continually seek and uncover reasons to stay perpetually provoked to new levels of success.
Motivation is something that I do not lack in my business or life. I feel like sometimes I am over the top in motivation and that my team and even my husband sometimes gets annoyed at my high level of motivation. I am the type of person that is driven at a level that most people do not understand or tolerate. I say this because I know that I do not operate at a normal or average speed. Although, I love this about myself, sometimes when running a team that can be frustrating to run at a pace outside of the normal, expected amount.
Tonight I had a call with one of my leaders that has a new found intensity and motivation. She is crediting it to the fact that her father has just passed away a couple of weeks ago. He had been in long term care for about 18 months or so. She has been dealing with a lot in her life recently and now that she is in the mourning process she is able to up her level of motivation. I am sure she will have her moments and days where she might need some space for mourning, however right now her level of motivation is high and she feels like this is her break out/through year.
I am fired up because I feel like I have a partner to run with this year that will help hold me accountable and help me stay even more focused and driven. She is one of those people that can also operate at a very high level, so this year I am excited to see her results and the results of her team grow tremendously.
That brings us to our next success trait, be interested in Results; Results often harsh, always fair. I am extremely fired up to right on this topic. More on this tomorrow, however sports will play into this one for sure!!
