Who Are the BIG Winners?
Some people are having their best year ever, but they are in the minority. For many Realtors, they have adjusted to a sales pace that is less profitable than it used to be. Lower home prices, longer closings, less net income at the end of the day. They tend to fall into one or two camps-acceptance of mediocrity or a “hanging on” mentality where they are just hanging on in hopes of an economic recovery. What if that “recovery” stalls out? What if the times we are in stay this way? How can we still win the game?
I contend that the winners right now, and the winners next year and beyond are NOT the ones that settle for mediocrity, not the ones that just hang on. The winners are the ones who mentally realize this stunning fact-even during the Great Depression, some made fortunes. Success is still possible REGARDLESS of the economy. And it starts with our attitude. There is still abundance all around us. There is still opportunity everywhere. The key is to stay focused on the abundance. Stay focused on the opportunities. But how? How do we stay upbeat mentally when the creditors are beating down our door? When everyone around us is negative? I have found two things that never fail to keep me grounded and keep me optimistic.
- Feed my mind positive thoughts
- Nail a daily routine
In these two simple things is the basis of consistency and an upbeat attitude regardless of circumstances. Feed your mind positive books, positive news, hang around upbeat people. What you focus on is what you become. If you want to be positive, focus on positive things and hang out with positive people. And then get in a routine that works for you and nail it. A little time exercising each day and a little quiet time for spiritual reflection, done consistently, will ground you and keep you upbeat. Exercise pumps positive endorphins throughout your system and feeding your spirit keeps you on an even keel. Do these two things, and it will be hard to stay down for long.
The winners in life are not born, they are made-day by day, one positive thought after another. You can still dream, you can still achieve, great things are still out there for you. Good things happen to those who are ready. Get ready with these two simple tips.
Have a great day!
