Reducing Stress

"Much of the stress that people feel  doesn't come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they've started.

Motivation and Inspiration!

January 19th, 2013 No comments

There are few things more motivating than a truly fine live event. I've read great books and articles, watched great videos and have also listened to 'inspirational' and motivating audio.

But a good live event gives you the energy of the crowd as well as the speaker(s). It is like the difference between an dead restaurant and one that is buzzing with energy!

The most motivating thing you are likely to be able to do is to go to the Louisville Manufactured Housing Show! Starting with the special Pre-Show Get the Edge event on January 22nd, and moving onto the main show that runs from January 23 until midday on January 25th, you want to come early and stay late every day.


Here is your link to the main LouisvilleManufacturedHousingShow.com website:

Here is your link to the show brochure, including seminars, exhibitors, homes on display and much, much more!

Zig Ziglar once said words to the effect, sure, you need regular doses of motivation. You also have to shower or bathe regularly too! We will be in booth #115 at Louisville, because it motivates us to motivate good pros like you! ##

The Daily Drill

"If I do not practice one day..I know it. If I do not practice the next…the orchestra knows it. If I do not practice the third day…the whole world knows it."
– Ignacy Paderewski
 

(Editor's Note: Ignacy Paderewski, notable Polish pianist and composer. I know some high performing manufactured housing companies that 'practice' what they call 'the daily drill.' Yes, they practice sales or other roles. Is it any surprise when they out-perform the competitors in their market? Appliance and electronics chain HHGregg is touting that their associates know more than other companies sales associates do. “We Help.” is their new tag line. Investing the time, effort and resources into training and motivation is proven to grow results, improve employee morale and performance, plus pays off on your bottom line. Make training a priority in your company, and practice the way, doctors, attorneys and other professionals do.)

"Yesterday's successes lead to today's complacencies…which lead to tomorrow's failures."
