Stay Focused - Crush It Mindset

Video Transcript for 'Stay Focused - Crush It Mindset':

Anthony Lamacchia: Becoming successful is a challenge. Staying successful is even more challenging. Why? Because people lose focus. My grandfather used to talk about this a lot. He used to talk about how once you start having some success at something, you have to stay focused. He didn’t necessarily even explain it to me that way, what happened was, I started having success in real estate, and I would go and tell him about it and tell him about sales and listings and all these things, and he’d say, “Okay, now, stay focused. Stay focused.” He must have said that to me 500 times in my first few years.

That was when I was number one agent in my state, number one agent in the Northeast, then number one team, growing, growing, growing. He would always say the same thing, “Stay focused.” Look at boxers, folks. Look at prize fighters. Look at sports teams. Many of them that have made it to the top actually admit that it’s easier to get on top than to stay on top. Why? Because human beings have a habit of getting distracted and not staying focused.

I had a conversation about a week ago with one of the realtors in our company who’s starting to have a lot of success in the last six months. This person mentioned, “Oh, I’m going to buy this. I’m going to buy that.” You know what I said to this person? I said, “Whoa, whoa, whoa. How about stay exactly in the lane you’re in and do not move for the next year or two and make sure that success is really locked down and you maintain focus before you start getting distracted with all kinds of things.”

If you’ve been fortunate enough to have some success in the last year or two or three, then stay focused so that you maintain it. If you’re someone, and I have a feeling there’s a lot of you listening because there’s a change in the economy going on right now, if you’re someone who got success and then kind of lost it in the last year or two, focus, buckle down, get back to doing the things that you were doing. Get back to doing the things that got you there so that you can rise up again and you’ll get there. That’s it, folks. Message straight from grandpa. No longer with us today, but that’s the crush it mindset message. Stay focused. Thank you.
