―Mia Hamm, retired soccer star
We are corporate athletes. But sometimes we “play” because it’s our job or because the boss requires us to. We play because we don’t want to get yelled at or have unpaid bills.
But somewhere behind all that is that genuine people person who went into new home sales for the pure of love of it–for the joy of meeting new people, for the thrill of closing a sale, and for the power that comes with knowing that your results are directly related to your efforts.
Tap into that and get into that childlike spirit of why you wanted to make this your career in the first place. Play for that.
Champions have fun with it. They play to perfect their craft. And they play for themselves more than they play for their boss or their mortgage or anything else.
Play for fun. Play for you.
Here’s to earning what you’re worth!
