    "10 things you can do now and a few other insights to spur your thinking. The worst thing you can do is think your lack of motivation is due to someone else or your environment. Anybody can make excuses. You can never allow yourself to be a victim of your environment.

    Success is not delivered to you; success is something you pursue.

    Success is not wrapped up in a gift box; success uncovers itself as you dig deep into the box.

    Success does not begin with someone else; success begins with you.

    Success is not a destination; success is a journey.

    Motivation is as much an activity as it is a mindset. I continue to see and hear about how interwoven these two words Ė motivation and mindset Ė are; itís amazing! I strongly suggest you watch my video as I share a lot more insights on how to motivate yourself and not allow yourself to be seen as a victim.

    You own your mind, and you own your actions. Below are 10 things you can do right now:

Take control of your mind by looking at the positive youíve done and the positive to come.
    2. Write down 10 things youíre thankful for Ė include the customers you love and how much they appreciate you for the ways you have helped them. Keep this list handy, because each person, each customer is a credit to who you are and what you have accomplished.
    3. Make a list of 3 people you expect to impact today and write down your leads and prospects. As you do so, intentionally see each lead and prospect as an honor to connect with; look forward to your conversations and possibilities that could arise today.
    4. Review your 1, 3, and 5-year goals, and challenge yourself to take a step forward in each of them today. Motivation is not a mindset focused solely on the here and now, itís a passion for tomorrow to achieve even greater outcomes than you thought were possible.
    5. Stay away from negative people. You donít have time for them, and donít waste your time thinking you can turn them around. The way you turn them around is by not giving them the time of day. Negative people are only happy when they drag others down to their level. Deprive them of that privilege. Trust me, you have better things to do"... [Read more at thesaleshunter.com]
