This Sign and Frog on My Desk Keep Me Sane

Believe sign and frog

One of the things that is very meaningful to me is my "Believe" sign.  One of our market center owners gave a presentation and asked that we "believe in the possibilities".  She talked about how our mind often limits our life and asked that we really focus on what we would want in life and our real estate business. She demonstrated the power of visualization as a force and gave several examples.  She had been to a Keller Williams International event and came back pumped.  Her idea was to share those ideas and "infect the agents in the office".  Positive energy is contagious.  Anyway, she bought these "Believe" signs and gave them to us.  Sometimes in our lives dreams come easier than other times.  She encouraged us to imagine the possibilities and dream big dreams.

The other thing that I have on my desk is a half eaten plastic frog.  I hadn't thought about it before, but this frog was a gift from another owner.  We were doing some master minding in our office and this owner shared a book called "Eat That Frog: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating" by Brian Tracy. The premise of the book is to tackle the tough jobs first.  We were to put these frogs in plain sight as a symbol that we were doing activities that should not be interrupted.  I confess that eating the frog first is not my greatest quality and I need to work on that.  Interestingly enough I had the frog at home and my son's new puppy ate the feet off of him.  I picked it up, started to throw it away, and decided instead to bring it back to my office as incentive to "eat that frog." FrogWith ownership like that, we should all be successful!  Dream the Dreams and Do the Activities.

Wow, what a book!  I'm not so good at Eating the Frog First but I am great at Rearranging Chairs on the Titanic.  (My new favorite phrase, courtesy of Chris Elizabeth Griffith.)

Thank you for playing!  Excellent contribution and you gave us a treat out of it, too -- a book recommendation!  A+!

Brad, thanks, perhaps I should pull that book off the shelf again.

Sarah, I love your new phrase.  Is it plagarism if I borrow it too?

Ashley, I love dogs, but I have to tell you that puppy is lucky he's kept his home.  Missing frog feet is the least of what he's eaten.
