Stop Being a Spectator!

April 3, 2017

Business Building

Many golfers say that spring has arrived¬†every April when it’s time for a golf tournament called ‘The Masters’.

I know it gets me excited, because the sheer beauty of the course on TV is spectacular and I’ve heard that in person it’s even more beautiful.

As you know from previous posts, I don’t spend a lot of time watching sports entertainment, but the Masters is my one of my few indulgences.

I’ve always been a Tiger Woods backer, because of how we does what he does in golf.

Last month ended up being very enjoyable, even though Tiger wasn’t close to contention, I was glad that Jordan Spieth won. ¬†I believe he’ll be a next generation golfing superstar.

What does all of this have to do with your real estate business? Plenty!

From the time Jordan was a little boy, he wanted to wear the GREEN JACKET. He and his family all sacrificed everything through the years…the endless road trips to tournaments, the coaching expenses, the re-mortgaging of their home again and again.

Jordan was focused on his goal.

Did he often wonder if it would happen for him? Yes!

Did he ever quit? No!

Most people today hit a few bumps in the road during their journey of what they call success and they quit…stopped dead in their tracks.

Then they become a spectator. They watch everyone else, whose exceeding in their business and saying things like “they’re so lucky” or “they just know the right people”. Well, hard work will help you get more things in life than just sitting on the sidelines.

I’ve often wondered why you see people on TV at NFL games with their bodies all painted in their team’s colors and they’re hoot’in and holler’in for a bunch of millionaire sports professionals, who are living out their own dreams.

There’s nothing wrong with being a spectator in one part of your life, if you’re truly in control of your own life and being all you can be.

Don’t just go through the motions in life. Life is not a dress rehearsal.

We all have but one life to live.

Whatever your goals are, know that it will take time to achieve them.

Don’t dream about being a millionaire real estate agent just for the money. Be excited about it, because of who it will help you become in the process.

Follow the steps needed to help you achieve your real estate goals. If you’re currently earning $50,000/year, don’t say that next year you want to earn $250,000/year, because you don’t have the skillset to achieve that level yet.

Review how you achieved your $50,000 and increase your business model by 25%. Figure out what you need to learn to do more business and determine how much help you by delegating some of the work load to others.

It’s been said that an agent can close around 40 transactions per year by themselves, but it’s going to give you a lot of stress in your life.

What are you really good at doing that’s income-producing activities?

Do that and delegate everything else.

Just remember that’s it’s not achieved and in sync overnight.

Work on it every day.

Get 1% better today than you were yesterday…that’s all!
