Some of the highest paid professions are lawyers, doctors and salespeople. The amount of college for an attorney is about seven years. The amount of money most law grads have to pay back is outrageous. Let's not even discuss doctors. These professions have years of schooling and their tuition is usually in the 200K point by the time they graduate, (if they didn't get a scholarship).
The Realtors that fail, usually are the ones that stop training at the 40 hour course. They are usually the one's that feel $200 bucks for the real estate course and $100 bucks on business cards are all the money they should have to spend to start their real estate career.
What they did'nt tell you in your 40 hour sales course was you are the CEO, the President, the BOSS of your own business . The amount of training you choose to take, the amount of money you choose to spend on you business is usually relative to how much you will get in return.
Our mindset can either make us or break us. I believe that having a "CEO" mindset is most of the battle. A CEO knows the following:
- It all starts and stops with them. No one is to blame for their business but them.
- They MUST evaluate themselves to figure out how to get better.
- They don't make excuses. They are solution driven.
- They have to train and practice to get better.
