Do you ever look at your “to-do” list and wonder how you are going to get it all done? Are you having more and more workdays wasted because you lack the motivation to get anything done?
Many people have a hard time finding motivation, especially if they have to tackle tasks that they don’t particularly enjoy. But you can jumpstart your motivation to keep you going so you can get through your to-do list faster than ever!
Getting (and Staying) Motivated and Successful
The problem with motivation is that you are either motivated or not; there isn’t much of a middle ground. All hope is not lost, even if you feel like motivation is something that has long since been missing in your life.
The first thing you need to do to get motivated is to find someone who has the motivational and success qualities you desire for yourself. It could be a family member, friend, colleague, or someone special in your life. Model yourself after this individual and consider chatting with them about their passion and motivation. When you talk to this person, tell him or her that you’d love to learn their success secrets. You may find that having this conversation with your role model will help to inspire you into action. We all can use some personal support, so step outside of your comfort zone and give this a try!
Many of the top loan officers have mentors. Your mentor can show you how to engage with your customers in a more effective and efficient way. They can share their sales success systems so you don’t have to learn the hard way. The value of having a business resource that “knows what you’re going through” is immeasurable. And once you make the connection, you can make a commitment to schedule weekly conversations over coffee with your mentor for motivation and support.
Now it’s up to you to make the very important first step of finding your mentor. If you don’t have a manager or a friend to help you, look on the internet for easy solutions. There are loan officer tools available online that can spark your motivation and get you headed towards a successful future.
