Thinking Positively for the REMAX Convention
We are always bombarded with so much negativity – it comes from the media, people, and into our thoughts. We certainly do not have to be negative people. It is a choice. The key is who you surround yourself with.
The more you surround yourself with negativity, the more negative you will be. It is as simple as that. As I am sitting on a plane headed to Las Vegas, I am so looking forward to the positive energy that I know will come from the REMAX convention.
We have been very busy which is great. But some of our deals have been quite hard and it will be nice to take a much needed break. This morning I was on the Facebook group “What Should I Spend My Money On” and I was amazed by the negative bantering of the agents over whether or not Zillow is a good place to invest your money. I was even more amazed by the amount of time that some of the folks must have spent with their comments going back and forth. It got to the point where it made me start thinking negatively and sure enough I left a negative comment. I should have just exited the group and just not left a comment at all.
More importantly, when agents figure out what works for them or surround themselves with other successful people, they will not get sucked in by negativity. I need to remind myself of that and perhaps anyone reading this should, too.
At the REMAX convention, I will be speaking on two panels, one being a panel of high income agents answering questions on what we did to achieve our 2011 production and another on what we have done to make REMAX Access a cutting edge real estate office. I am pumped up for it and just thinking about it is getting me fired up. We all can have a plan for 2012. And aspirations. But I think good business mojo all starts with that positive thought and is carried out with that positive energy.
Let’s face it, no client wants to deal with someone who is talking negative or who is not at the top of their game. Be positive! And surround yourself with positive people. Sounds simple. It will take you to higher levels in your business. We all can be better agents today. It just starts with a positive thought!
