Incorporating Being A Pusher Into Your Business Plan

Hey you have to do what you have to do as the economy is weak. But have you thought about

Incorporating Being A Pusher Into Your Business Plans?

No, not an alternative income stream related to drugs and any illegal activity.

I am talking about not forgetting about your goal setting despite hard times. 

Did I ever tell you I don't believe in other people motivating you? I think people can inspire you but true motivation comes from within. It is self-motivation. Being a "pusher" means coming up with goals at least in 90 day time windows ahead of you and making them stretch goals not those easy ones that don't take any effort. Business goals, fitness goals, educational goals, social or charitable goals, etc. Don't rattle off too many goals but maybe focus on two or three good big ones per quarter. You do need to be a pusher of yourself cause no one will light a fire under your butt as good as you can. You may like using an accountability partner if that works for you but for others these people are annoying and you'd rather report in to yourself. All depends on how disciplined you are.

So are you a "pusher" or laid back? I vote for being a pusher. Goals mainly set the sails for where you are wanting to go even if the goal is a bit too challenging to meet this quarter. If you don't meet it, roll it into the next quarter, but be persistent with it. Goal setting thoughout life should be definitely one of your drugs of choice!!

Hi Gary:

I'm all for inspiring others. 

As you know, I started the Motivational Monday group.

And you're right, Motivation comes from within.  But it's the outside influences that make it happen...

Even though I've never thought of myself as a pusher, maybe I am.  I have found since working from a home office, I accomplish a lot more than in the broker/office setting.  Maybe I motivate myself more that others motivate me.  Interesting thought.

No doubt about it, I'm definitely Type A. I make things happen. But there are drawbacks, you know. Sometimes little things can fall through the cracks.

Hi Gary,

I love your message: goal setting should be your"Drug of Choice!" You are right we can listen and get ideas etc. but it all must come from with-in. Thanks for all your inspirational messages.

Gary: Self-motivation is the hardest thing for some in our business.  A very good friend of mine is one of them.  I seem to want success for her more than she wants it herself.  That doesn't help her at all.
