Harnessing Your Energy

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Eddie Brown ~ FM Realty a Long & Foster Company/ Raleigh NC

In the real estate industry you become your most valuable asset!

Systems, Dialogues, and Presentations are all important, but if you are not sound mentally, physically, and emotionally …your business will suffer. In order is grow a strong and profitable business, you have to learn to harness your energy.

The quantity and quality of your energy are a key determining factor for your success.

The definition of energy:  “The ability or capacity to do work or to produce change …the intensity of your actions.”

Think about it …When you feel well rested and have a purpose for your day and all your priorities are getting done, don’t you feel more energetic? I know I feel fantastic when I have enough energy left at the end of the day to do something fun with my family!

Energy Drainers: Fear and Worry, Indecision, Drama, Poor Physical Condition, and Lack of Direction can be energy suckers.

Energy Givers: Positive Mental Intake, Positive Associations, Regular Nutritious Meals, Alignment of Values, and Written Goals all with build and restore energy!

Energy Sustainers: Tracking Your Progress, Visual Anchors for you Goals, Consistency, Time Blocking, Taking Regular Breaks, and Accountability will each in their own way sustain your energy stores for use when you need it.

Look at your own energy level and what threatens it …How can you get more out of the energy reserves you already have ... and just as important …How can you harness and store more energy for later use?

This post had my name on it this morning.  I am starting over in a new market and doing alot of spinning my wheels, not in the gym, but in getting started over again.

I have alot of experience and technology in my tool kit, but am having trouble focusing in on the task at hand.

The healthy eating, rest etc. is what I do need to take into account.


Thanks for this post.

It's easy to read about energy givers and sustainers, but more difficult to put them into practice.
