Empty calories keep real estate agents on the sidelines.

Real Estate Agent with ReMax Realtec Group

Empty calories.

Salt/sugar/fat. You know what I’m talking about: the calories that give you a good rush for 30 seconds but ultimately do much more harm than good.

They are destructive.

Eating too many of them will lead to physical and mental stagnation (and even worse).

And there’s a word that gets thrown around in the sports and business worlds that is the equivalent of an empty calorie:


People standing on the sidelines of life use the word ‘potential’ to make themselves feel good in the moment. "I could have been a well known novelist if I had applied myself." No, the truth is I could not because "I am not a novelist."

People, business people, constantly think about what they can be or what they could have been.

And this temporary good feeling is exactly what keeps them stuck.

How do we fight against these empty calories of potential and instead be a part of the real world and make things happen in our lives and careers? 

Stop being a consensual observer and DO SOMETHING!

For some it's lacing up the sneakers and choosing to make fat cry.

For others it is committing to writing that first direct mail campaign.

For a few it will be to approach someone respected and ask for some mentoring.  Sometimes we are too deep in the forest to see what others can see. 

Ask for honest feedback after demonstrating to them you can graciously handle the truth. People will not tell the truth if they do not trust the listener. Ask them if what you have to offer is "EXCEPTIONAL." 

Then act upon what they share.

Do not dine on the empty calories of potential.

Best of Success,
