Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart

Have you ever thought about the habits you have? I was thinking of this while sitting in the dentist chair and the dentist sticking a needle which felt like it was eight inches long into my gum. 

Think of five habits you have that are good, and think of five habits you have that are bad. Think you don't have any bad habits? Ask your spouse, our your best friend. When you think about it you can make a big positive change in your life. Some positive examples for good habits:

Read something positive for 15 minutes every day

Call a friend every day

Mail a thank you to someone every day

Eat healthier beginning now than you have in the past

Think how happier changing bad habits to good habits can make you happier and possibly make you more money. 

Real estate agents, think about your habits and how you can make a big difference in your production. I will give you an example, I gave my business card to the dentist after she was finished! I am back to what I did when I started selling real estate in Columbus Ohio handing out business cards to people I meet every day. I have given out more than  8,000 business cards. And when I do I BELIEVE I am going to generate business from it immediately. You see that think positive is a huge benefit to your life, it helps you to remain happier, it causes you to feel better, and just changes your day.

The back of my business card says: Put My Experience, Knowledge, Service and Professionalism to work for you. when I hand the card out I hand it out with the BACK side showing.

Take a close look at your habits right now, by the way strong communications is the one good habit that real estate agents have that is not good. Return those phone calls promptly!

I hope your day is as great as mine.

It’s a good practice to reevaluate where you are and change course and retune from time to time.

I like the idea of talking to a friend every day.  Thank for the idea - that is a great habit to start
