The Magic of Thinking Big

Education & Training with Realtor and Productivity Coordinator - Keller Williams

I'm reading an older book by David J. Schwartz called The Magic of Thinking Big.  It was recommended by Mary Johnson, trainer for the S.M.A.R.T. program, formerly The Floyd Wickman program, during a talk she gave to Real Living managers, brokers and owners in Columbus last year. (I'm finally getting around to reading it!)  Schwartz believes that negative thoughts hold us back from achieving what we really want.  The book is easy and fun to read. It has lots of specific tips and examples of people who have succeeded and how they used positive thinking and self-confidence to do it.  Isn't confidence one of the best skills we can develop to help our real estate business, especially now?

Has there been a meaningful book in your life that helped you succeed in real estate? If there has been, let me know!

Thanks for the recommendation! I completely agree that negative thoughts hold us back from achieving what we really want. I would love to read the book when your finished. Can you pass it down to Columbus?  : )

There are so many good books for agents to read. I would suggest E-Myth Revisted.

I have not read many Business Books (except Stephen Covey years ago) but this one was a really good one. It keeps your interest!
