20 Excuses U Can Use When U Don't Make it to the Top 5% in 2017

Real Estate Agent with Homesmart International

Excuse #1 Trump won

Excuse #2 Clinton did not win

Excuse #3 I am too old

Excuse #4 I am too young

Excuse #5 I am too new to the business

Excuse #6 It is my brokers fault

Excuse #7 It is my spouses fault

Excuse #8 I am a single parent

Excuse #9 My health is poor

Excuse #10 Buyers are liars

Excuse #11 I do not have money to pay for advertising

Excuse #12 My spouse just filed for divorce

Excuse #13 I have a full time job and no time to work at real estate

Excuse #14 There is that do not call list

Excuse #15 The weather is bad here

Excuse #16 I don't know what to do

Excuse #17 I am new in town and don't know anyone

Excuse #18 The market is bad

Excuse #19 I don't have any listings

Excuse #20 I don't have any buyers

Notice... I said excuses, NOT reasons. When I began, did not have cell phones, I worked 45 hours a week in a warehouse and sold 12 homes in six months, and had no idea what I was doing however it sure was fun. Work five hours get a check for $700. which was more than I made in a month driving a forklift.

You either are fortunate enough, blessed by God or whatever you want to call it to have the willpower, drive, desire, passion, determination, discipline, focus, consistency, and commitment, or you don't.

Understanding daily it takes many failures to experience a few or even one success.

We leave our excuses next to our baggage here...outside the door when we arrive to work.  Nice message.
