How Much Is Enough?

High - achievers often believe that more is always better. 

They use this belief to create both their successes and their excesses.

Wanting more and obtaining more produces more.  Because societies often measure success quantitatively rather than qualitatively, people who do more and get more are deemed to be successful and honored if not revered by society.

The “success” of more also often creates a sense of “wunderkind” or “ubermensch."  The super successful believe in their infallibility and or their untouchability.  We see this on a daily basis in the …

2013 is the Year to Tap Into Your SoulFire

Written on December 30, 2012 at 10:38 am

I’m curious...

Do you wake up each day with fire in your belly?

Is your Monday morning full of energy and excitement about the week ahead?

Are you looking at 2013 with a sense of anticipation and passion?

 

I sure hope so. I want that for you SO much.

When I look in the rearview mirror I can see the many phases of my life including roles I’ve held, careers experimented with, and people I have worked alongside. It is easy to spot the times where I had SoulFire lighting me up and times when my spark had been …

Howard Brinton – His SoulFire Lives On

Written on December 26, 2012 at 2:11 pm

If you have been in real estate for any time at all, you have heard of and undoubtedly been influenced by Howard Brinton. The founder of Star Power Systems, Howard touched many lives along his path and served as a mentor to thousands. He is a person who by just watching him, you knew he had SoulFire!

 

His physical presence will be missed.

Although we were not personally in Howard’s “inner circle,” his influence on our real estate careers was far from insignificant. Most all of our systems, tools, and learning can be traced back to his teachings and …

INSTINCT vs. Instinct

Written on December 13, 2012 at 9:24 am

When do I use my gut and when do I use my brain? Get a bunch of coaches in a room and you will get quite the lively debate about what it means to rely on our inner wisdom (which we all agree that we have) or to use our experience and learning to make decisions. Coaches Art and Anna Kleimer sum it up well in today' blog post.

Natural to Disaster – Out of Practice for Sure

Written on October 2, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Ok, so now that I have had a chance to reflect, it occurs to me that “disaster” may be overstating it just a bit. Let’s just say that I was very discombobulated as I headed out for Columbus, OH to teach a 3 hour continuing education class at the Ohio Association of Realtors convention this week.

I rarely feel this way about traveling. A bit out of control. Scattered. Fuzzy headed. Clear one moment and totally off the wall the next. I am usually pretty put together...prepared...capable.

There were a few other signs that I was not on my game …

Real Estate Is My Business. Not my life.

Written on November 9, 2011 at 9:52 am

Friends vs Job www.nikkiandchris.com

Because the NAR (National Association of Realtors) ad campaign telling people “We are Realtors. Real estate is our life” bugs the crap out of me,  I decided to do a little journaling in my online journal in hopes that it will make me feel a little better.

It did in fact help (as my journaling usually does) and then I wondered if maybe my thoughts could somehow contribute to others and decided to share it in my blog. It’s probably rough around the edges as a result, so ignore the grammar and read for content please.

Are you satisfied?

Written on September 28, 2011 at 1:39 pm

 

If you are a Type A personality, or in other words, a High Achiever, we understand that having big dreams, plans, and goals comes naturally to you.  You know how to work hard and multi-task, and how to attract new opportunities.

You see more, want more, and can do more for your family and in your business.

 

People like you achieve many things through their natural temperament and talents alone.

 

If your goal is to succeed in business while raising a family, your natural temperament will take you most of the way.  Satisfaction, however, may be more …

Success, Guilt, and High Achievers

Written on May 31, 2011 at 3:40 pm

I was just thinking today about some common themes that are coming up with some of my high achieving coaching clients.

My guess is that it is striking a cord with me because I have a tendency to struggle with these issues myself.

(By the way...in the middle of writing this blog, my husband came across a podcast with Tom Delong, Harvard Business School professor, called “The Hidden Demons of High Achievers” that absolutely HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD regarding this topic, so after you read this... check out the link at the bottom! It's pretty short (compared to …
