Do You Have the “Yeah But” Syndrome

Written on June 28, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Have you ever been in a conversation with someone who asked you to give them your opinion?

Or someone who was telling you how miserable their life, business or relationship is and if they could just ________ it would be so much better.

Maybe you choose to offer a solution or share with them a story about someone else who had overcome a similar issue.

The person half way listens (briefly) to the information you are sharing and then quickly responds with a statement beginning with “Yeah, but....”

If you are in a conversation and continues in this circular fashion, …

What Were You Thinking?

Written on March 22, 2012 at 12:29 pm

So much of what we do these days is done on auto-pilot. People just aren’t “thinking.” 

Consider for a moment the following scenario...

You roll out of bed, brush your teeth, shower, shuffle to the coffee pot, hussle the kids out of the house or take the pets out for you know what, drive to the office, boot up the computer, check the email, update your Facebook status, check your messages, and then.... the whims of the world take over for the next 7 or 8 hours.

Until... the end of the day, you finish your last email, return your …

Written on January 17, 2012 at 10:47 am

 

2012 is sure to be an amazing year for real estate! Here are just a few goals you might have set that would warrant getting some coaching support....

1. Hiring key team members. When you hire an Executive Assistant, Buyer's Agent, Showing Assistant, Listing Specialist, or even a part time runner/courier, your business can soar! Hiring RIGHT is the difference maker.

Life Isn’t Practice

Written on December 14, 2011 at 12:26 pm

My current favorite book is “Aspire” by Kevin Hall. It was a gift from a dear friend and came with a beautiful note inside from his as well as being personally autographed by the author.

The book was an easy read and had a profound impact on me right away. I found myself engrossed in Kevin Hall’s passion for certain words in our vocabulary that we often just take for granted and use without having a true sense of the real meaning behind them. I especially appreciated the lessons on Genshai and Namaste.

In the second chapter of the book …

Are You Creating Your Own Stress?

Sales race at www.nikkiandchris.com

For all the high-achievers out there who aren’t giving themselves enough credit for their accomplishments. For those who are isolating themselves in the name of a goal. And for those who are trying to become a version of themselves that someone else has designed.

A little over a year ago, I realized a trend in some of the top agents I was coaching. These were highly driven, success oriented, obedient, and talented people, being compelled to fully engage in a training course whereby they were challenged to compete and “win” by following a set of pre-determined rules over a period …

Excuses are like…You fill in the blank!

Written on October 25, 2011 at 2:57 pm

At the gym this week I was doing my post-work out stretches. A lady a bit older than me standing in ear-shot commented to another woman, “Look at that girl. She looks like a pretzel.” The second woman then sighed and said only one word, “Youth.”

Naturally there was that little part of me that was flattered by the admiration, however, the comment about youth kinda stung. The fact is, I could barely bend at all a year ago. My muscles were so tight that I was in constant pain. I went to the chiropractor 2 or 3 times a …

How old is OLD?

Written on May 26, 2011 at 11:00 am

 

If you ask around, most people will probably say something like, “age is a state of mind,” or “you are only as old as you feel.”

Well, I say that is horse manure! Those are the politically correct answers when in fact if you pushed people to give you a number they would ... and every person’s number would be different based on his or her respective life experiences.

Let’s call this "programming" or "conditioning" around aging.

It's an "attitude."

T. Harv Ecker talks about a formula that looks like this, P-T-F-A-R. Programming leads to thinking, thinking leads to …
