Your money is made in August, plain and simple. The sun is shining, daylight hours. You’re trained better than you’ve probably ever been trained and there’s people ready to buy. They’re home, they’ve, you know, they’re getting ready for school. They’re not on their vacations as much. It’s time to make some money. So, I’m gonna give you five simple tips on how to finish the summer out strong.

Get Back To Your Why

First one, it’s the don’t lose sight on why you started, why you did this job. A lot of people, they get so stuck in the routine, the mundane, and they fail to remember, okay, this is exactly why I’m doing this. It’s for my mom, it’s to buy a house, it’s for my wedding ring, it’s for whatever that is and, keep tying every day to get back to your why. That’s the first to and foremost tip.

Burnout Is All In Your Imagination

The second tip, don’t believe in the word trunky or burnout. Burnout is all in your imagination. Now, think of it as like, if you’re a running coach, you’re gonna tell your runners, Hey, if you’re running the 400, don’t stop at 340, you know, and start slowing down and finish through the finish line. It’s Hey, the finish line is a hundred meters past the real finish line. You need to run through the finish line faster than you’ve ever ran before. And it’s a psychological thing. When we see finish lines, we, our natural tendency is to slow down and just coast into the finish line instead of bust through it. It’s all in your mind. There’s no such is burned out and trunky, it’s all just your own mental fortitude. So, strengthen that.

Take Pride In Your Job

Tip number three, stop telling yourself that this is the last year. So often I hear, oh, I’m just a, you know, one summer and done, or, oh, I’m, I’m gonna go get a real job. Take pride in that. You knock the, and take pride in the fact that you have an amazing opportunity right there in front of you. Stop daydreaming about the future job, the future school, the future, whatever, because that’s just a distraction from what you’re there focused right in front of you. So stop telling yourself you’re never gonna do this again because nine times outta 10, you probably will. You’ll get wrote back and you’re gonna actually love it because every year there’s such a natural, Hey, I’m gonna double my income. Make 20% more. Where at every other normal job, you can’t do that. So, I promise you, you’re gonna do this longer than you think. So. Make sure you take this year serious.

Chase The Guy In Front Of You

Uh, number four, chase the guy that’s front of you. And what I mean by chase that guy is, a lot of times you have a leader board, right?Whether there’s 50 people or 3,000 people in your company. So, what ends up happening is if you know that there are guys tailing you, and they’re about to pass you. You need to leverage that natural competitiveness and the competitiveness inside of you so that you can actually surpass, like not to let them pass you and say, I am going to pass. You know, the fifth rep, I’m sitting, number ten, I’m gonna finish number four and I’ve gotta pass this guy, this guy, this guy, and this guy. In August is when you do it, because they’re sometimes not as mentally as strong as you are. So, make sure you chase the guy, but also chase the pay scale, chase the bonuses, chase the incentives, because this is the month where most companies give the most. Most time you hit your tears. So, make sure you chase what’s in front of you and make sure that you don’t let what’s behind you, pass you up.

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Number five, make sure that, you know, just because you didn’t make the amount of money that you set out to make, doesn’t mean you’re a failure. I see it so often that people let’s say I’m a veteran. The year before I made 200 grand, and this year I made 190. I’m like, oh my gosh, like this, job’s not for me. I should have made way more. I’ve been working my butt off. It’s like, you just made $190,000. Maybe you didn’t, maybe you wanted to make 300 this year and double your income, or whatever it is. And you didn’t, tough luck. But, at the end of the day, what ends up happening is they do that. And now they say, oh, I need to leave my company. I need to go to greener grass. I need to go do something thing else. That’s when it just kills you, because the second you take your eye off, Hey, I’m, it’s all on me. I’m not gonna play victim and tell myself a story. I’m just gonna own it and not realize that I didn’t fail. I just came out here. I learned things that I didn’t learn, you know, didn’t know before. That I actually grew as a human being, but not financially. That’s okay if you’re a rookie and maybe you set out to make 50 grand your first year and you only made 20, what do you do? That’s life. A lot of times you get rooted with the recruited, with the wrong expectation. That’s okay. But just realize that second year and third year and fourth year is where you’re just gonna incrementally keep getting better. So, remember that and don’t beat yourself up and just say, oh, this wasn’t for me, cuz I didn’t make the money. Maybe you made five grand this whole summer and, and spent it all on food. That’s okay. Because the skill set you’re learning today will Slingshot your career in the future.

So, just remember plain as simple, don’t take your eyes off of what’s right in front of you to don’t think you have to bounce, don’t start making decisions of like, oh, I’m gonna do some other job after this because you’re in a really like fragile, emotional state right now in the summer. And remember that.
