Change the Story Day 25 of 90 in a Realtors® life. Stop me if you haven't heard this story. There is no inventory. The market is crazy. People don't want to talk to agents. I can't door knock in my town. I hate cold calls and now I have to cold call to be successful? Everyone has heard this, but is it true?  Well, yes and no, in the words of Henry Ford, "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right." What you are saying to yourself, what you are feeling inside is manifesting itself in your life on a daily basis. I know this because I struggle with this.  Surround yourself with good people is what we are told so I did that yesterday.

Knowing what I want and not getting it demands I change. I knew this several days ago and I have felt it for a month. That is why I hired a coach.  Yes, I did pick up 4 listing this month and have 3 more in the pipeline I am still not feeling it.  I still do not have a handle on how to continually get up and produce the results I want.  So I changed.  I reached out to 31 people performing at a level I want.  I asked each the same questions, what do you do daily to succeed? What is your schedule like? When and how do you make your calls?  Then finally, can we script practice and can we be accountable to each other.

Being afraid is no excuse, putting yourself in position to get what you want also puts yourself in position to grow.  Fear and trepidation are real, but not an excuse for not taking action. Today is the day today.  Tomorrow can wait, build your tomorrow today.  That is why I Change the Story Day 25 of 90 in a Realtors® life

Thank you Kathy Streib, when I don't know an answer, or need one, I reach out to others.  Active Rain is a fantastic platform filled with helpful people in that manner.

Cold calling, warm calling, door knocking etc. can all be panic inducing.  But if we aren't getting the results we want/need, it's time to shake it up and figure out what we have to do.

HI Larry Lawfer - you are on the right track.  Mix it up.  If something is not working we have to have courage to do something new.
