Despite Christy and me harping on being in today, January 2nd, to get a jump on all the new expired’s before the rest of the agents show up on Monday…

…are you in your office making those calls?

…are you invigorated, energized, enthused, excited, rip-rarin’, ready to go?

Or, is it just an, “I guess I better get in the office.  Jeez, did the holidays go quickly.  Guess I shouldn’t have stayed up to watch the Orange Bowl.  I’ll just skip the gym today, and head straight for the office,” kind of day?

In other words, did you turn off the switch on your business on Christmas Eve, and now try to turn it on today?

Most people do, and what they find is they can’t just turn it on like a light switch.

Here’s why:

First of all, as I stated, there’s the added down time of the holidays, and the food and probably the liquor.  You most likely didn’t really exercise this past week, unless you’re a total gym rat – which means you have an advantage – so your body has slowed down considerably.

But let’s forget all about last week.  Let’s pretend that today is like any other work day.

What are you doing differently, to amp your energy and enthusisam level up, that you haven’t done before?

Everyone says 2008 was awful, good riddance, and let’s go 2009.  So, that means that your energy and mindset may not have been that good in 2008 (can’t blame ya!).

Marshall Goldsmith has a book called What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, and it’s the perfect title for this post.  You will have the same or worse results this year if you don’t do something different for your mindset than you’ve done before.  AND…you can’t expect just to turn it on like a light switch.

Please refer back to Christy’s blog on the 30th for tips on brining your energy and enthusiasm up, as she gives a comprehensive list of things to do.

And for now, just pick one thing you haven’t been doing to get you started.  One thing.  Perhaps you’ll start exercising.  Maybe you’ll review your goals in the morning.  You might say or listen to affirmations (get ours by clicking here).

Just do one thing different that you haven’t done before.

You know the definition of insanity, right?  Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
