Kicking Butt in 2017 - All Due to a Positive Mindset

Real Estate Agent with Maricopa Real Estate Co BR645115000

How a Positive Mindset Can Create a Wealth of Business


Positive MindsetOn January 1st, I made a decision that I was going to have a positive mindset not only in life, but also business. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very optimistic person. However, I realized last year, that there were times I let a negative mindset creep in when business wasn't as strong as I wanted it. But not this year, I was going to be positive and grateful even during the tough times. 


You see, there is a positive in every negative situation. Maybe it is a lesson you will learn, or maybe it is the door that opens due to the opportunity that popped up. Or, maybe it is just to help you see all you have to be grateful for. 


I hear you now, "Yea, yea Tammy, great but what are the results?"


Well, three months in, I'm having the best year ever. After 4 months, I'm not only ahead of any previous year, but at this rate, I'll beat last year by mid year. About a month ago, I had a crazy 48 hours where I had 11 different offers outstanding. Did I get them all? No, but I did get the majority of them. 


Now, I don't tell you this to brag. Far from it. I share this only to emphasize what I feel is the #1 factor in my success. I started this year believing it would be my best year, I knock out negative thoughts immediately and I just know in my gut it will keep going. 


customer loveMy customers are "loving" me to death. I've been so crazy busy.  But I have loved every minute of it. The best part? My energy and results are inspiring others around me. One younger agent I work with, did 3 jobs all of last year, this year, she is also focusing on positivity and now she might have 3 in escrow at the same time! She is so fired up. Even as a full time mom just trying to work when she can. She is seeing some great results. 


Another agent, weaves in and out of positivity. When he is positive, business is booming, then he slips back and things die off, problems pop up. We've talked about how his attitude seems to line up with how his business flows. He is now refocusing on staying positive no matter what. Guess what? Two new contracts in the last 48 hours for him!


Don't get me wrong, it is more than having a positive attitude. It is about DOING SOMETHING, TAKING ACTION. Along with a great attitude, you MUST get off your butt and do something. Make things happen. Go to work!


If you put this all together, you too will kick some major butt!  


By the way, if you are curious, here is a show I did on my podcast about this positive attitude and how it can help you in your local small business



How about you? Did any of you make this same commitment this year? If so, how is it going?

Nice post Tammy. The Law of Attraction, it's there, it's a universal law whether people believe it or not, like the Law of Gravity. You asked what we do, Jan 1 I reminded myself to be more engaged and catch myself when I slip, then I turn on a dime to be grateful, it changes everything. I believe I was supposed to see you, so I'll send you an email about a referral idea. Thanks Tammy.

I'm working on this both internally and with my Coach. I really beat myself up, and right now, when we are supposed to be in the middle of a "crushing it" market, I've got nothing in the works. Nothing. But I'm working to be positive.

I've got an outdoor space called Serenity Pond. It's "dead" right now with alge growing in the pond, no plants and no fish. I'm going to work on it this weekend as I feel the energy from this special place in my life will work its way into my business as well.

I am with you 100% on the positive attitude--not only in work but in everyday life. I try very hard to emphasize this with my teen daughter, who can often complain about the silliest things! The older I get , the more positive I become.

FAN-tastic post~!  I do think that how and what you think and perceive becomes your projected personality and "aura" if you will.  Some people have that electricity about them that is so attractive to others and while some people have it naturally but others must cultivate it with self-reminders.  For me whenever I get a negative thought going I say outloud to myself "NO" and then I think about the most positive thing I can about the situation at hand to throw the doubts out of my mind.  I remind myself to give people some leash to do the right thing vs. making assumptions.  I also have a large multi-tiered bird feeder, stocked daily, right outside my office floor to ceiling window, and I find the playfulness and sweet chirping of the birds it attracts brings positive energy and lightness to my day.  My cats love it too~!

Great job Tammy!  I hear you.  That was my last year's production.  A lot of it had to do with my spinal fusion surgery.  It's depressing recovering like that!  I've made up my mind to do the same thing and YES it does result in more sales.  You go girl!  Let's touch base again in a couple of months and challenge each other :)
