Yesterday I received an email from a friend of mine that had a movie attached called 212* - The Extra Degree. My friend knows I love to read (or watch) things that help to motivate and inspire me and thought I'd really like this short movie. He was right. This was a great movie that talks about the difference in being good and being great. Many times people are so close to becoming great, but don’t make that last extra effort to push them over the top.
My favorite quote from the film was “To get what we’ve never had, we must do what we’ve never done”. This is a great line for new agents especially. You need to do things you’ve never done before or things you aren’t comfortable with to take it to the next level. Don’t be afraid to try new things. If it doesn’t work, try it again and again. If it still doesn’t work, scrap it for something different. At least you’ll know it doesn’t work. The point is you tried something new and something you might not have been comfortable with. The next time you try something new, it will be a little easier.
The web site that the movie came from was called simpletruths.com. It is a great site for anyone looking for that extra push or anyone trying to give a push as well. There are items you can purchase for yourself or buy them as gifts if you like. There is free newsletter that you can sign up for. I signed up, but haven’t received one yet, so I’m not entirely sure what it will contain.
There are a few other free movies as well that are definitely worth checking out. I think my favorite was The Dash by Linda Ellis. It is a very touching piece that reminds us not to overlook or ignore what is really important in life. I would encourage everyone to watch it.
