2011, The Year to make it your Best in Real Estate Ever! I started Dec 31, 2010 on 2011. I continued to show properties on Jan 1, 2011 and Jan. 2, 2011. I should have been home like everyone else relaxing, recharging, but I wasn't! Instead I was touring a couple from NY, who had never been to the beach area of Delaware before. They were told by friends who had vacationed here in the past that it was a great place to retire. So being off, they took the long weekend to come see our great state, The First State, the state that started a nation, Small Wonder as it is known.
I toured them for 3 days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday about 6-7 hours a day. Showing them homes for sale in Rehoboth Beach, homes for sale in Lewes, DE, homes for sale in Millsboro, homes for sale in Milton DE, and homes for sale in Selbyville and Ocean View. At some point we even crossed into Maryland.
The long days didn't bother me, as I knew I was getting a jump on what I consider to be my best year ever in Real Estate. You see, in 2010 I double my business from 2009, and in 2011 I plan on doubling my business over what I did in 2010.
You see, I have a goal, a direction, a plan. I constantly think about all 3 of these things and more to plant that seed in my mind that I will reach my goal and I will succeed, even in this down market. I have a prosperity mentallitiy and nothing will ever change that. Not slow sales, not client credit issues, not rejection. Nothing will avert me from my plan.
I beleive if you have a plan, and you work towards it, and I mean really work towards it, you will not fail. But you have to get rid of the excuses, the reasons why you can't do something and instead plant the sead in your head you can succeed, you can reach your goal. If I ever get a negitive thought in my head, with in seconds it is replaced with a positive thought.
You all should try what I do, it works, it really does! It doesn't matter if you are selling real estate or teaching the handicapped. With a goal and a plan you will not fail. You may not always reach your goal, but you will get further than you even had before, and that is a fact!
In closing, I wish you all the best of times, get a plan and a goal and work towards it. You will feel better about yourself, and the results will follow! And remember one last thing. and that is too enrich the lives of others on your way, and you will also be rewarded in ways you never imagined.
