I posted an article yesterday about staying positive.
I wanted to put my own thought on that article. In this day and age it is so important to keep a positive mental attitude.
I talk to my realtors about staying positive all the time. The reason is simple.
People want to be around and work with charismatic people.
Charisma starts with personality. Think about the most charismatic person you know. Are they “doom and gloom-ers” or do they make you feel good when you’re around. The answer should be simple - they are a breath of fresh air. Charisma builds on a positive attitude.
Remember who you are in your sphere of influence. You are a charismatic leader. People yearn for a leader not more followers. The reason is simple: leaders love other leaders and followers need leaders. As a realtor and trusted adviser you want people to look up to you all the time. Not just when there are buying a house from you. This all starts with being the most positive person they know.
The problem with being positive is not easy. I equate positive thinking to physical exercise.
When sitting around doing nothing you get the immediate guilty pleasure of “relaxing”. You cater to your natural state, which is to sit still. But when you exercise you may not feel great while your doing it but you feel better for a much longer time once you are finished. Lets face it. Being negative is easy. It really is. In fact, being negative is as much a guilty pleasure as sitting on the couch eating ice cream. It takes work to be positive. And deep down people know it. Make being positive a habit and people will flock to you and so will the referrals.
After reading this go back and read yesterday’s posting.
