The rewards that we acquire are bringing all of these individual facets together successfully for all of those involved. To me that is the rush that I get out of my vocation.
Are there some aspects of real estate sales that I am not wholly in love with - absolutely. Are there some tasks that I'd rather not do, or at least to a lesser extent than others - for sure. But as with anything else it is the total package.
It's what we bring to the business of real estate that will determine where we are going and how we will get there. For some, it may just happen. But there isn't enough longevity to that - waiting for things to just happen. It's what we bring in and of ourselves that will determine our longevity and profitability in this business.
OK, so I've written four paragraphs here and while most of this is just philosophical, I've not given you anything solid to grasp. A lot of things are intrinsic and not tangible. You can't touch someone's attitude, yet you may be able to feel it, be it their aura, etc.
It's like the old story, and I just found out that Abraham Lincoln stated this, but "you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time." It's just not going to happen, no matter how good of an actor that you think you are.
We've talked so much about developing a business plan and many do not do this even in their heads. I think that part of that problem, procrastination, whatever, is that too many feel this to be a daunting task. It doesn't have to be. Yes, it should hold several components, but it doesn't necessarily have to be a dollars and figures spreadsheet. Some do like taking it to that extent. Some of us are the engineers.
Let me just state that there is no right or wrong, I am only espousing my feelings about such.
I think we need to be introspective. Some like doing this more often than others. Some like to do this on an ongoing basis, while others may only do this occasionally. You have to know where you've been to possibly understand where you are going. You have to have learned the lessons of the past, otherwise all is for naught. You will only be repeating the same things over and over and unfortunately in many instances be expecting different returns. Chances of that happening are basically slim to nil. You'd only be kidding yourself and unfortunately this is done only too often by many.
The energies that you exude and surround yourself with will either make or break you. Some will unfortunately think that I'm just blowing this out my rear. But think of it, what do you want others to see and feel? What do you want to evince?
We talk and hear people say about all the negativities in the world and our businesses at present. And if you feel this way, then that is what people will see coming from you. How about all of the positives? There are pros and cons with almost everything. It is how you wish to look at it. Is the so to speak glass half full or half empty? These are your choices. Many will say that the industry is in turmoil and will be for years, our society is in turmoil. But homes are being sold every day. Where do you fit in with this picture? Where do you want to fit in with this picture?
It all comes down to choices and which road we wish to take. I guess that I've used several adages here, but they do show a point hopefully.
We all have issues. Sometimes we all have doubts. But it's up to you if you wish to befall into the crevice. Do you have a plan or something to utilize when you are feeling down or unsure? Or do you just fall into it and let it envelope you and just wait for it to pass?
It comes down to do you wish to take action or react to something. You will definitely get different results by both of these. An action is something that thought has been given to, whereas a reaction is something that is automatic.
Maybe I should retitle this post to read "A Philosophical Discourse - Where do you stand?" I enjoy writing and sometimes it helps me. I enjoy sharing my feelings and personal insights. But as I previously stated there is no wrong or right, it is just a matter of what works for YOU!
