Guest Post by Kimberly Mackey

Recently Kimberly Mackey, co-host of the Sales & Marketing Power Hour & National Speaker, posted a thread on her Facebook group asking for “Random Advice” No specific topic, just good advice. To start the ball rolling she gave us a true gem that needs to be heard by leadership, online sales, and sales people alike as well as anyone working within the building industry.  Really if each person no matter what they did applied this advice to their daily activities there would be a major energy shift in the world. This advice is the difference between creating a scarcity mindset and a mindset of abundance. Truth be told, I’m lucky enough to call Kimberly a friend and she often helps talk me off of cliffs and brings me back into balance. We all need those good friends, and we all need this great advice!
Says Kimberly:
As I am coaching leaders and salespeople lately, with the market shifts, I see people who are being unbelievably hard on themselves (and sometimes others). So, my best advice is GRACE. Get some, give some.
When we start by trying to understand first and judging less, we get to a much deeper path of growth.
Having and giving grace doesn’t mean accepting less than your best. It isn’t an excuse to not give 110% every day. It is acknowledging that despite your best efforts, some days you won’t get there. Figure out what happened and why, then make a plan to get there tomorrow. Don’t beat yourself up. Watch your self-talk. Battles are won and lost between your ears. When you make a mistake, instead of saying, “I’m an idiot.” Try saying, “well, that didn’t go according to plan. What can I learn from this?”
P->T->A->R. Programming leads to thoughts, thoughts lead to action, actions lead to RESULTS. The foundation of results is your programming. Change that and the rest falls into place.
Give GRACE to others. Before you judge someone, before you allow them to anger you or upset you, remember that you don’t know everything going on in their world. Dr. Covey tells us, “seek first to understand; then be understood.” Stop judging people. It’s not your job. Lead with kindness, love, and understanding. Those three things are the kind of pandemic this world could use right now.
