Day 10 of 90 Best Practices Real Estate 2018. When do you count a real estate deal a success, or should I ask, when do you consider yourself a success with real estate. Our work is so varied with so many moments of up and down, we truly live in a career that delivers success and failure each and every day. Do you count it a success when you get a listing appointment, when they sign the listing agreement? Both are important moments and do have a measure of success to them. Do you count it a success when it goes on the market? It is a success when you get an offer, or do you wait for the purchase and sale? Is it at the P&S that you allow yourself to think about the commission that will be yours at the closing.
Or is it a success when you close and get your commission check? I am inclined to think of each of these moments as successful moments. Celebrating success can be a daily habit. Success comes from the daily habits you embrace. It is not the first rejection or hang up that slows the process, that is just part of the process. Success comes when, as a Realtor®, you do your job to the best of your ability during that day, that time, that moment regardless of outcome. This is what my coaching is teaching me.
Fear is part of the daily routine and that is fine. Failure is not any worse than success is good they are one in the same. It is in our daily efforts that we connect. Without connecting to people who wish to buy, sell, or invest we are nothing. Our purpose as professionals is to know, inform, engage and assist our communities,nothing more, nothing less.
