"Passion Drives You...Reason Holds the Reigns"....Benjamin Franklin

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Executive Realty

I’ve written and read many posts about setting goals and working a plan of attack in 2012.  Everything I’ve read makes sense and is good planning for the New Year.  However, the one element that is ALWAYS ASSUMED is that all professionals have a passion for what they do.  This applies to all professions, not just real estate.

If you do not have a true passion for your profession, your production will reflect it.  If you do not have your head in the business at all times, your production will reflect it, and unless there is a passion for your work, you will not conduct your business as such.  If you are not passionate about what you do every day, you will not want to do it every day.

There is no method for creating this passion.  Passion is an element that makes one piece of the puzzle fit perfectly with another.  Passion continually allows the dots to connect with little effort. 

To be passionate about your profession is a blessing that not every person will experience.  If you have a passion for what you do for a livelihood, you have truly been blessed.  You should have a smile on your face every day.

Hi Barbara.  The series and topic of your posts today are right on target.    Passion for helping people drives us in this business.   It can be easy to lose passion temporarily because of an outside distraction.    That is when having a strong, caring office support system is so important in an agent's life and livelihood.

Amen, Ma!  This is so true.  Passion is what keeps your head on straight and keeps you trucking even when there is no  "reason" to smile.  It carries you through the ridiculous lenders, loss mitigation folks, wacky inspections, obnoxious service providers, all of it.  

Keep smiling!
