Success is a Decision

By
Real Estate Agent with Hardy Realty

Everyday I wake up, I thank God for my health and my family. I then decide if I am going to be happy and successful that day. I know so many people who walk around being so sad and negative. What if they simply made a decision every morning to be happy? There are many times I start to feel negative about the real estate market in these days, but then I remember back through all the years I have been doing this and realize I had those same despair feelings and BOOM, all of a sudden I had more than I could do. Then I just needed a break. We all know that real estate is a cycle and it will be back!

My trick that has always helped me be successful is that when I know I need to make a phone call I am not really excited about making, I tell myself this: If I try I will have a 50% chance of success, but if I do not even try I will have 100% chance of failure. So next time you hear someone talking real estate and you think "I should say something", but feel insecure, remember if you do you have a great chance of getting a new client! You can not be timid and successful in real estate. Take the extra step toward being great instead of good!

I agree!  If you don't try you can't succeed!

I always remember that song "rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens -- silver white winters that melt into spring -- these are a few of my favorites things.... "   and then I don't feel soooo bad!

GREAT post!  So true, it is a choice, most often when it is the most difficult, the choice to succeed will make the difference.  Thanks for sharing.
