Book 5. Day 49: QBQ

Is QBQ at all about holding people accountable?

NO!

It’s about holding OURSELVES accountable…

You can’t be hurt by fear

Imagine you see a pyramid.

I read about an amazing concept in the book “Crushing Call Reluctance”, by Carl White and Kevin Gillespie, on how to get rid of the cold calling fear. 

Take a piece of paper and draw a pyramid on it.

Divide the pyramid in 5 ascending parts, listing the 5 stages of fear most loan officers face:

I need to pick up that phone and dial!

I need to leave a voicemail.

I need to talk to the receptionist.

I won’t know what to say!

I will be rejected!

But think about it, one by one. 

Rejection does not ‘actually’ hurt you. The receptionist won’t bite and you will most likely have what to say (if you’re well prepared).

What happens if they will say no?! You are not a loser because of that.

A ‘no’ will not kill you! If it hurts your ego, then talk about it with a friend and laugh it off. Smile to yourself in the mirror until it doesn’t hurt anymore.

You have big dreams and major goals in this business. You are in it for the long term of 10, 15, 20 years. 

What are a couple of rejections in the long term plan of your career?

You cannot reach the high ranks of success without first plowing through the first few steps. 

There is no way to reach 100s of happy clients before going though 10s of rejections. 

How do you handle the fear of rejection?

Blaming

What things stress you out the most?

Your success is measured according to the level of stress you can handle. Nobody has it easy. Everyone has some bumps and resistance along the course of their life.

The more stress you can handle, the more you can move past the resistance in your life. 

Look inwards and ask yourself: “How can I increase my stress level?!”

Stress can destroy by overwhelming a person into panic mode. It feels like there is no way out.

You become a victim to your own stress level.

The best way to overcome stress, is to become more resilient to the stresses in your life.

The more resilient and tough you are against stress, the easier it is to move on with life. The more you can push your bar forward.

2021 should be the year that will change everything for you — for the better, through raising the bar on your stress level.

Keep going and keep growing.

Book 5. Day 48: QBQ

If we can’t ask questions that begin with “Who?”, how can we discuss of what went wrong?

“Whodunit?” questions are almost never about solving problems…

Remember, seeking culprits adds no value!

Repeition is the motor of learning…

25 years

What will you accomplish from now until Spring?

We are at the beginning of the first quarter of the new year. Spring will be upon us in roughly two months.

What are your goals for these few weeks? 

What will you work on?

Dan Sullivan suggests a great idea in the book “The 25 Year Framework”.

It is basically a plan to succeed within 25 years.

#Age does not matter. 

Whether you are in your 20’s, 40’s or 60’s. 

When planning ahead for 25 years, we suddenly change our habits.
Eating healthier.
Exercising more. 
Working harder. 

In terms of quarter years, 25 years is a total of One Hundred Quarters.

Think about that!

Each quarter totals just “one percent” of the 25 years.

What an amazing mindset!

A mindshift. 

How much can you accomplish in that one quarter, that one percent of your total 25 years of business growth?

Roughly two months left in this quarter.

What is that “one percent” that you will achieve this quarter?

Lots of luck reaching your goals!

Book 5. Day 46: QBQ

We may not need the QBQ every minute of every day…

But we often need it often enough for it to make a difference…

An integrity test

Are you a two-facer?

Here is an integrity test: 
Does what you say about your _______ {friend, employee/er, spouse, etc} while you are with them, match with what you say about them behind their back?
#QBQ

Do you say the same things at home – about your work – as you say at work?
Or about the school, community, or friends?

Do you say the same thing in front of your friend, Rabbi, boss, employee, or co-worker? 

Believe in the organization you are in. 
Believe in the company you are a part of.
Believe in the people you surround yourself with.
#QBQ

Nobody is forcing you to stay at your job/organization/surrounding.

Believe in it, or leave it. You are not a tree!

If you don’t believe in the company that you work with, move on to one that you can believe in, that you agree with their mission and values.

“It’s better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.” — Alan Watts

“If you don’t have what you love, learn to love what you have” -World Truth

It all starts with knowing who you are and where your strengths lie, and know what you want to accomplish in life.

Know what you want to accomplish this month, this year, this life.

Don’t feel like you are stuck in this situation. Increase your capacity.

Find the work you believe in and go for it!

Snow

How can something so beautiful be so dangerous??

Snow. 

It’s all a matter how you look at it. 

Positive thinking or negative thinking. 

Snow can be uncomfortable and slippery. It can get muddy, dirty and wet.

We need to shovel in front of our house, and then dig out the car.

Yes, it can be uncomfortable! But look how beautiful it is too!

It’s white and clean. So refreshing. A blanket of snow on the world.

All the trees and rooftops covered in snowflakes.

(You can even grab a sled, or some skis and have some fun.) 

It’s beautiful to think how nature gives us so many different varieties of seasons and weathers.

Sunshine and a warm breeze. And rain, snow, hail and sleet.

So many varieties. It’s truly amazing!
