Looking for motivation? Don't waste your time!

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Associates

Wait a minute.  No matter how I wake up in the morning as soon as I get my big toe in the office door, I am asking myself.... "What am I going to do today to build my business?" 

Last month while reading through REALTOR Magazine looking for business building ideas, those little ads caught my attention. 

**FREE Real Estate Newsletter filled with money-making secrets and marketing tips.  **  Marketing Secret that Made me a Millionaire Agent  **  Want to Bubble Proof your Sales?  **FREE BOOK:  87 Ways to make over $1 Million in commissions on the Internet  ** Free Book  101 Secrets to Success.

Believe it or not, I decided to order each and everyone promising my marketing could go on autopilot so I'll have time for other things.  Like constantly deleting their emails with their helpful tips.  HA!!!

I received these items.  You want to know the 101 Secrets to success.   I STILL WANT TO KNOW....  I get a book with 101 agent testimonials how sending out a pre-made newsletter changed their lives.  The most powerful money making marketing tool is a CD and with the self promotional items all the others sent me, I am not even motivated to take the CD out of the case.  The flyer says invest in just 48 minutes in myself... I bet in the CD they want me to invest some $$$ in some idea that I am already using.  FastTrack to $50 Million.  WOW.  I want that....HA HA.

So, save your self some time on these so called motivational tools.  I learn more here and am a lot more motivated in Active Rain land.  It's free, I get to network, and I get motivation by reading your ideas and opinions.  So, today when you get ready to put something in your blog for all to see.  Remember, there are many people looking for growth and motivation, not just a place to vent.... like I just did.  

Have a Fabulous Real Estate Day!

You are a smart cookie! Motivation comes from the inside (though there are some good skills and ways to differentiate that will help) Following your passion and BEING OBVIOUS are the best ways to create new business. There is no quick fix! Thanks for reminding us! If you want more might want to check out NAR's e-PRO Course for solid content on how to differentiate with technology!!!!!

Anona good post. I believe you are your own motivator. When I get up I always ask myself how I can make the day productive. I have found that before I go home at night, I write a list of things I need to accomplish the next day, so that I have somewhere to begin and build from there.

The only person getting rich from those publications is the clown producing them.  There's a sucker born every minute and it's great to learn you're not one of them.  About 15 years back I got bit and got a publication (different emphasis, but same presentation) and for the little money I sent I only got disappointment. Not again.
