Olympic Mind Set - Keep Working on Your Skills Til You Make It

Real Estate Agent with Annapolis Plaza CB Residential and Commercial

As we tune in to watch the 2008 Olympic Games this Summer, we will be reminded that every individual there worked on their skills through all kinds of adverse conditions.  It is not an easy road to get to that level of competition.  Most of them have dedicated most of their life to perfecting their skills to reach a lifetime goal of competing in the Olympics.

Building a real estate business and sustaining it requires learning and sharpening many skills.  When times get difficult, we are faced with re-visiting our goals and objectives for building a successful real estate practice. We need to be open minded to learning new innovations that will bring us new prospects.  Today, we need to be aware of all the technologies and information that are available to help us provide better service and results to our buyers and sellers.

This is not an easy time in our economy.  Many industries and businesses are having difficulties.  We are experiencing an adjustment in the real estate industry.  We need to work beyond the adversity, much like the athletes who strive to reach the Olympics.  The competitors who will be performing at the Games kept going even though they experienced injuries, financial difficulties, personal sacrifices.  They are committed to their goal.

We need to remain committed to our goals in our business and continue to strengthen our skills in all ways to bring value to our customers and clients.  Surround yourself with people who support you in your personal and professional life and remain positive in your outlook for your professional future. 

We attract what we think about.  Like an Olympic competitor, keep your sights on your goal, and making your life what you want it to be.

Pat,I like your analogy to the Olympics. It has taken such a long time to hone those skills.

In real estate, it takes much time, patience, practice, learning, courses, listing, selling, interacting and yes even blogging to...." keep your sights on your goal"

You have to make life what you want it to be."
