A New Day - What do you believe

 A New Day

 

If I’ve learned anything in life, it is that if you believe something is possible, you tend to focus on what you must do to make that possibility a reality.  I’ve also learned that if you don’t think something is possible, you will be blinded to the ways it could be done.

So my question is: “Do you think it is possible to become a high achiever?”.  In my mind your success will all come down to how you answer this question.  “Do you think it is possible?”   Recently one of our senior agents told one of our new agents that you can’t make any money in real estate, wonder what her answer to the question “Do you think it is possible?” would be…. Wonder what it always was???

I believe that life is like a river, and that most people on the River of Life have never decided where they want to go. So they just go with the flow. One day they wake up and discover that where they are on the River of Life is not where they want to be and they start to make excuses for their position when the only reason they are where they are on the River of Life is because they never made a True Decision about where they wanted to go. It’s likely that whatever challenges you currently have in your life could have been avoided by some better decisions upstream.

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve” W. Clement Stone.

What do you believe?

Stop going with the Flow, start taking control of your boat on The River of Life!

I've heard more seasoned agents say the same thing. I don't listen to them. I make money. I believe we control our own destiny. All things are possible.

I believe. I believe. I believe and I choose.  As for being a high achiever ... one would need to define that. It likely means something different to each of us. I make choices based upon what I want. As you say, we must first know what that is. I like your thinking!

Beth, I'm similar to Kathleen.  For the balance in my life needed, I can't/won't be a 50 transaction a year agent, but that's okay and not my goal.  But I know whatever we choose to be, we can get there with the right application of effort and it falling into God's plan for us.  Bill

Great question!  Excellent post...I have Suggested!  I totally believe we can make things happen by believing we can make them happen!!  Excuses are so much easier, and often the way people go.

Your message is also true for many of us that are trying to determine what to do in retirement.

Beth, I agree many of us never stop to think  what we are doing or why because we operate by rote. We all need to do a self analysis to see shere we've been, whre we are and where we want to go and how we will get there.

I know today, I spent the day yelling, screaming, tweeting, linkedin, and going from the bottom all the way to the Presidents office at BOA to get a short sale that they denied yesterday after it was approved in April back on track.

Tomorrow I am going to give you folks a detailed account of just how powerful SOCIAL MEDIA played a part in my getting a personal phone call and apology from the Office of the President at Bank of America and a PERSONAL NEGOTIATOR assigned to get my short sale reopened and back on track to closing next week. 

I chewed butt like a bulldog today because I knew I was right and they were wrong and it got all the way to the Presidents office.

Then I decided thsi is my AHA MOMENT!  AMERICAN HOMEOWNERS who are still underwater are about to get VERY LUCKY as I was glad that my last 3 short sales were about to close and I was content to not chase anymore short sale listings but today I had a REVELATION:  Homesellers DESERVE my expertise until the end of this year when short sales are scheduled to end.
