I recently met one of our company’s newest top producing agents and had the chance to chat with him after watching him walk across the stage many, many times collecting award after award. I made the comment that he was the companies’ new giant! His wife told me that his parents told him as a child that they had found him in a field of kryptonite, that he could do/be anything he wanted. And you know what? He has. I’ll spare you all the details of how since being in the company under 2 years, he’s accomplished more than most ever dream about.
It got me thinking. Wow! What we believe and think really does matter, it really does. It also got me thinking, I wish I had parents like that and how my life coulda, woulda, shoulda turned out had I had that kind of belief in myself. I almost headed down that self-pity trap but was quickly reminded that I do have a loving parent who tells me that all the time. It’s just that sometimes I don’t listen, not sometimes, most of the time.
