10 Ways to Ensure a Successful 2017!10 Ways to Ensure a Successful 2013!


Short-term or long-term success goals are just a business plan away. It is never too soon or late to write them down on paper. They will be set to motion and guide you through the New Year to a prosperous end when implemented consistently and thoughtfully.


Back in 2010, I originally wrote this motivational post based on past experience and now realize the list continues to stand on its own merit! This is the year to capitalize on strengths and improve in areas to drive your business forward, ensuring overall success. 


Are you ready to take on 2017?


Successful real estate transactions are an exciting and viable part of business. A homeowner sells their property and a home-buyer purchases the home they desire at a good price and we, as residential real estate professionals, are rewarded for our efforts.


The following are some guidelines for goal-setting that have helped in the past and continue to be my guide:


1. Set realistic goals that are reachable...it's okay to go high as long as they're attainable!

2. Put your list of goals in a highly visible location you will see it several times a day for reinforcement...bathroom mirror or refrigerator or both.

3. Take problems and turn them into challenges.  Don't get defeated by the little things!

4. Train yourself to find solutions rather than complaining. People zone you out when you tend to unload on them and will eventually avoid you.

5. Surround yourself with positive, driven people. Negative people will suck you dry of energy and motivation.

6. Hold yourself accountable to stay on task of your goals. Get a day planner or plug your daily activities into your phone.

7. Measure your success at the end of each month. Are you close to where you should be?

8. Reach out to a mentor or fellow REALTOR® when you need help. Most seasoned professionals are more than willing to help!

9. Know the direction you want to take and GO FOR IT! It's up to you how busy you wish to be!


10. Be Thankful. Be sure to show appreciation to those around you who help in so many ways to ensure that you are successful, your broker, title people, lenders, appraisers, inspectors and especially your family.


Happy sales to you all!

Good morning Wanda.  My goal is already in place and it's working.  I may need to change it from time to time next year.
