Are You Where You Want To Be?

Real Estate Agent with Comey & Shepherd Realtors

If you're not, then you need to ask yourself, "Who am I associating with?

I recently attended a personal development training with Mr. John Gardner, a self-made millionaire from South Carolina and one of the co-authors of "Chicken Soup For The Entrepreneurial Soul" talking about the successful habits of many success-minded business people in history as well as the current day entrepreneurs.

One of the philosophies I learned from this training was "The Law of Association". Who are you associating with on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to improve your business skills? It's been said by many that 'You become like the 10 people you hang around'. Are you at the level in your real estate business that you desire? If not, it's never too late to start. Take people, who you aspire to be like, out to breakfast or lunch. By asking them lots of questions and really focusing on their answers (take notes), you'll shorten your learning curve.

Take time out of your schedule and go to motivational or inspirational events outside the real estate industry once or twice a year. It can bring a renewed energy to your life and your business. Whether it's Anthony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Les Brown, Jim Rohn or so many others, take the time to learn more about how to balance your life. Real estate is the vehicle you've chosen to help you accomplish the goals in your life. What does the money you earn from real estate allow you to do that you really enjoy doing (a hobby, visiting a far away friend, a calling)? Are you taking the time needed to have a balanced life?

Oh, I almost forgot the NAR radio commercial I used to hear, (paraphrased) - "real estate is our life (24/7), so our clients can have a life". Don't forget to take time to enjoy your life!

Just thoughts to ponder!

To your success,

Hi Dan:  I read Zig Zieglar's "See you at the top" when I first got in to sales 25 years ago.  I recently picked it up a re-read it.  I was amazed at how much had stuck with me over the years.  I am still impressed with the book. My copy is dated but there is an updated version so I bought an updated copy for both of my young adult chilren to read.
