The Fox and the Grapes & Real Estate
On a hot summer's day, a Fox was strolling through an orchard, he suddenly came upon several juicy bunches of grapes, suspended high above his reach. Hungry and drooling, he thought, "Just the thing to quench me."
Taking a running start, he leaped, just missing the tasty bunch. Turning around again and once, twice, three times, he jumped, with no success. Trying again, again and again, he failed to be rewarded for all the effort.
He finally gave up, walking away with his nose in the air, saying: "I am sure they are sour anyway." It is easy to despise what is not easily attainable. The Fox's appetite was not sated that day, he gave up too quickly.
In real estate, there is much work to be done when starting out. Early efforts may not be rewarded. Implementing processes and procedures, creating a viable marketing and advertising plans and setting achievable goals is pertinent.
- Tenacity plays a large part in overcoming adversity, disappointments and impediments that get in the way of a successful outcome for clients.
- Negotiation skills are a must when countering terms and deadlines within a contract with the agent on the other side of the transaction.
- Staying power means handling stressful situations as they arise rather than allowing unecessary drama to directly affect the client.
Giving up easily like the Fox because the returns are not immediate is common among new recruits who lack patience, put little effort toward business, while expecting a huge return. Chasing the money, putting clients in second position is never a good work standard either!
If you do not succeed once, twice, three times or more, try, try, try again. In the end it is so worth it, just mind me and you will see!
