    The Number One Habit To Develop – Become An Anteater!

    The Number One Habit To Develop – Become An Anteater!

    My acquaintance Dr. Danial Amen wrote about his experience with ants. After a hard day at the office, he arrived home and found thousands of ants in his kitchen as he started to clean them up, an acronym developed in his mind – ANTs.?

    Just like the infested kitchen, his patients’ brains were also overrun by ANTs. Yet ants in a different sense:?Automatic Negative Thoughts (ANTs).? And those thoughts were robbing them of their joy and stealing their happiness.

    He started teaching his patients how to eliminate all of the ANTs because that’s what fuels negativity.

    Every single time you have a thought, your brain releases chemicals.

    Dr. Amen determined that every time you have a sad, hopeless, mad, cranky, unkind, judgmental, or helpless thought, your brain immediately releases chemicals that make your body feel awful. Your hands get cold and wet, your muscles get tense, your heart beats faster, and your breathing becomes shallower. Additionally, the activity in your frontal and temporal lobes decreases, which negatively affects your judgment, learning, memory.

    The opposite is also true – whenever you have a happy, hopeful, loving, kind, or positive thought, your brain releases an entirely different set of chemicals. Your hands get warmer and dryer, your breathing becomes more profound and more regular, your muscles relax, your blood pressure decreases, and your brain works better.

    So, if you want to eradicate negativity from your life, work on disciplining your mind to get rid of the ANTs and developing ANTeaters to patrol the streets of your account. (Side note: 2 of my sons our University of California (UCI) Anteaters!)??

    Just as there are many species of ants in the world, there are different kinds of negative thought patterns (ANTs). Dr. Amen outlined a few we felt we all should learn to identify:

    FORTUNE TELLING

    The masterful art of predicting the worst, even though you don’t have any evidence.

    MIND READING

    Where you arbitrarily believe that you know what someone else is thinking, even though they didn’t tell you. Many people do this, and more often than not, it gets them into trouble. It’s a significant reason why people have difficulty in relationships. I call it false projecting!

    GUILT BEATINGS

    Thinking with words like should, must, ought, and have to. The words we use to talk to ourselves are significant. Guilt is a good motivator for change. Telling yourself, “I should go see my grandmother” rather than “I want to spend time with my grandmother,” only serves to make you feel negative.

    BLAME

    Whenever you blame someone else for the problems in your life, you are a victim, and you can’t do anything to change it. Many of us play the blame game, but it rarely helps us. Stay away from blaming thoughts and take personal responsibility for changing the problems you have.

    LABELING

    Calling yourself or someone else a derogatory name. This diminishes your ability to see situations clearly, and labels can be very harmful.

    So now that you have met some of the ANTs that rob you of your happiness and peace of mind, what do you do about them?

    Whenever you find yourself feeling mad, sad, nervous, or out-of-control, write down what you are thinking. Then identify which ANT species is infesting your mind and talk back to it.

    Challenging negative thoughts (killing the ANTs) takes away their power and gives YOU control over your thoughts, moods, and behaviors.

    The cool thing is we all get to choose how we play the game and learning how to kill the ANTs and develop an internal ANTeater is a great choice!?

So watch today’s episode to find out how a “tired” mind finds a path of least resistance in distracting leisure activities” and the solutions – if you choose – to take a different path.

    Can You Have It All?

    Can You Have It All?

    In one of our major markets, recently our company learned it was performing nearly four times better than the market average. That’s a big win amid a global pandemic.

    That got me to thinking how did our real estate sales associates do it? What is in our culture that makes this type of result possible? Well, five things came to mind:

    • Done is better than perfect
    • Redirecting after accepting mistakes
    • Focus
    • Fun
    • Growth mindset

    Done is better than perfect

    Psychologists Thomas Curran and Andrew Hill studied more than 40,0000 people from 1989 to 2016 and found that perfectionism has increased by 33% since 1989. We seem to be internalizing a myth that life should be perfect, when, in fact, that is an impossible outcome.

    The research shows those who become preoccupied with perfection set themselves up against challenges.

    The key to moving ahead is to follow through, and our associates performed exceptionally well during this crisis.

    Redirecting after accepting mistakes

    So, you made a mistake, now what?

    • Recognize that sinking feeling
    • Assess: what happened and why
    • Make it right
    • Adjust the system or process
    • Be kind to yourself.

    “If you don’t make mistakes,?you’re not working on?hard enough problems.?And that’s a big mistake.”?~ F. Wikzek

    Curiosity is the art of questioning everything without judgment or assumptions. With this approach comes continuous improvement and learning. As I look at our associates, they have a mindset of constant improvement. They participate in an ecosystem that encourages life-long learning, sharing, and best practices.

    Focus

    The human brain is programmed to narrow its concentration in the face of a threat. We are designed for self-protection.

    The trap is that your field of vision becomes restricted. Leaders need to intentionally pull back, opening our mental aperture to take in the mid-ground and background.

    As a veteran, it’s what we call – situational awareness — taking a broader view of both challenges and opportunities.

    During this crisis, we’ve provided our associates with clear communication on:

    • What was
    • What is
    • And what will be

    There was a past of relative stability and predictability. There now is disruption and uncertainty. There will be a different future state. As this future unfolds, our associates are preparing to be resilient. To be gritty. That’s a competitive advantage.

    Fun

    According to a 2015 study, laughing makes us more open to new people and helps us build relationships. And real estate sales are a relationship business.

    We booked a virtual comedy night in the quarantine, and a virtual American Idol knock off event. Laughter can improve our health and make us better learners. And what’s more: laughter is contagious.

    Growth mindset

    The truth is we all have our fixed-mindset triggers. When we face challenges, receive criticism, or compare ourselves with others, we can easily fall into insecurity and defensiveness, a response that inhibits growth.

    To spend more time in a growth zone, our team and associates have worked hard in small groups to identify the triggers that do not serve us. It’s hard work, but during the quarantine, our associates gained a lot by deepening their understanding of growth-mindset concepts and putting them into practice.

    It seems our most effective associates during this crisis followed a pattern:

    • They controlled the controllable
    • They prepared, planned and trained
    • They had situational awareness
    • They kept the human factor in mind
    • They guarded their mind & heart

    At the end of the day, they ensured their choices reflected their hopes and not their fears. You can do the same. Join us.
