It Doesn't get Easier...You Just get Better.

Columbia, SC Homes for Sale  It doesn't get easier, you just get better. It's a statement that I have heard many times and mostly in reference to exercise. When you first start lifting weights or running, you may find it very difficult to do what seems like a small task. However, as you continue to run or lift you will notice that in no time you can run a little further or lift a little more weight. The more you do, the more you can do.

  Well, real estate is really no different. When you first start out, that phone can seem really heavy as you pick it up to prospect. But as you make more and more calls you begin to gain the confidence to keep going, especially when you manage to make some appointments. Each listing presentation you go on can seem to run a little more smoothly than the last as you start to shake off the nerves and become more comfortable with your ability. The truth is that whether you are talking about working out or conducting business in real estate, none of the tasks at hand become any easier, you simply become better at doing them.

Suddenly, one appointment, you realize you aren't dreading questions, your palms aren't sweating and you aren't nervous.  Just happens the more times you get out and do it.

Hi JL.  You are so right!  With each step, the next step gets easier, doesn't it?

I agree with your title line.  I am learning Spanish.  I began a year ago.  It doesn't get easier, but I know significantly more of the language than I did twelve months ago.  Learning is a lifelong endeavor.

This is so true! Your first line reminded me of when I had to practice those scales on the piano. My piano teacher told me some day I'd come to appreciate what that exercise does. It is true. "It doesn't get any easier, it just gets better." It's that way with this business or anything we do.

It is said that showing up is half the battle - if this is true (it is), then what's the other half?  It's mastering our craft.  Prospecting/Lead Gen is the showing up part, and working to be the best possible fiduciary is the other half.  Makes me happy to see agents on the right path!
