Top 10 Lessons I Learned in June 2017

freelancing-writing

Every month since January, I have been journaling the greatest insights and reminders I learn each day.  I can report, now that we are half way through 2017, I am very thankful I started this experiment.  It’s given me a tool (my journal) that I can easily reference at any time for pages and pages of inspiring quotes and reminders on how to enjoy success…both personally and professionally.  And sharing with all of you has been fun!

Here are the Top 10 lessons I learned in June 2017.  Let me know which ones resonate with you the most in the comments below. (*one thing to note…these are never listed in any particular order, other than the order in which I “learned” them.)

  1. You don’t always get what you want, but you do get what you expect.
  1. All things being equal, people will do business with and refer business to those they know, like, and trust.  But I never gamble on “all things being equal”.
  1. Give, give, give…not as a strategy, but as a way of life.  When you do, the money will follow.
  1. Being broke and being rich are both decisions you make.
  1. The fear of one upset client or referral partner keeps you from building the one thing you desire most – a self-managing team and business.
  1. I am a financial educator who happens to be an expert in mortgage advice.
  1. Some things can be done “good enough”.  Let go…and focus on what you need to do.
  1. If someone questions your price, it means you did not communicate enough (perceived) value.
  1. Character is greater than intellect.  Character is what you do; intellect is what you know.  Thus, close the gap between what you know and what you do.
  1. The most valuable gift you have to offer is YOU.  No matter what you think you’re selling, what you’re really offering is YOU.

Keep learning.  Keep growing.  It is what we are designed to do as humans.  And please share this with others to give value and help THEM grow.
