Email #2: What one CAN be, one must be.

In the previous email, Abraham Maslow powdered our purty wig with his wow based words when he said,

“What one CAN be, one must be.”

If these words don’t shiver yer timbers you’d better check your pulse. You may need life support.

And you’re in luck, because the Good Life is here to support you. 

Support you in your pursuit of personal greatness as a real estate agent.

In doing so, we must do what Steven Covey convinced us to do in the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Habit #2 says to Begin with the end in mind.

“Hey I got a morbid idea… let’s try it now!”

Imagine yourself all pale and ashy lying there dead as a doornail in a cold casket as loved one’s mourn your mediocre life.

Now rewind a bit, and there you are on your deathbed about to croke. You’re all choked up with regret because just when you were drifting off and reaching for the white light – the door flung open and in walked the person you could’ve been and screamed, “I’m the person you should’ve been – you banana head!”

So today I remind you that you will suffer from one of two pains. The pain of discipline or the pain of regret.

Your choice.

Begin with the end in mind. Plan for your personal greatness and do it now!

P.S. My book notes for The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People can be found on the blog.

#175: You’re either on a Mission or you’re wasting your one and only life (As my friend Jim Rohn said, “You’ll suffer the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.” Don’t die full of regret.

The only way to get anywhere meaningful is to know exactly where it is you are going.  You must clearly define your Mission and establish the exact steps to take to get you there.  Otherwise you’ll be lying on your deathbed filled with regret.

Listen Now and live the Good Life.
