Tell Me What You Can Do

Tell me what you can do? It is an interesting question for any person at any time. If you work in real estate as a salesperson, it is a key question that will impact your future.

So many people think about what they are struggling with in life and career and fail to see what can be done to fix it.

The phrase ‘Tell me what you can do, not what you can’t do’, is one that my father Ern Highman drilled into me as a kid. To this day in my ongoing activities coaching people in business and property performance matters, it is a question that I raise frequently to get them to tell me what they can do to get back on track.

Success is an internal thing that comes from what you do with the environment and the pressures around you. It always comes back to you.

The next time something is getting you down, have a listen to yourself and ask the question, ‘Tell me what you can do?’ When you know the answer, take action and the problems will diminish.
