How to Have a Better Career in Real Estate: Check Your Mindset

smiley faceWhat do you want out of life?

When asked that question, the #1 thing most people say is to be happy.

If you stopped to think about it, are you happy now? Do you have a career that is fulfilling and gives you great joy?

If not, here are some tips that will help get you on the right track, no matter what field you may be working in.

And for those in the real estate industry, these tips will help you enjoy a long run of success without getting tired out or burned out.

1. Watch Your Mouth

What we mean by this is, be careful what you say.

You might think this applies to what you say in conversations with others, but it actually has more to do with what you say to yourself.

Negative self-talk is detrimental to your overall well-being. Say positive things and you will feel more positive. Don’t tear yourself down with denigrating words. Lift yourself up by using positive affirmations that remind you of your good qualities.

2. Look Around You

You will likely become like the people you surround yourself with. Look around you…are your colleagues and friends positive or negative?

When you place yourself in more positive situations, you will feel upbeat. Consistently surrounding yourself with negative influences will only bring you down.

3. Keep on the Sunny Side 

We’ve all known those people who could find something to complain about no matter where they were or what scenarios were presented to them.

Are you one of those people?

It’s never too late to turn things around to have a happier career and ultimately, a happier life.

If you are finding that you must deal with these negative people, try to give them something positive to focus on. Ask them to share one positive thing they have to be grateful for. Sometimes it just takes focusing in on the good to lose sight of the bad.

4. Feed Your Soul 

We mean this both literally and figuratively.

Take time to nourish yourself by enjoying a good meal with pleasant company.

Stop working long enough to have time with family or friends. Laugh. Simplify your schedule when possible.

Spend a few minutes reading a good book or just relaxing.

This will allow you to care for yourself so that you can come back to work refreshed and renewed.

5. Find Positive Influences 

Mentors are a great way to have more success in a real estate career.

And if you are far along in your career and have wisdom to share, consider becoming a mentor yourself.

As you are growing and building your personal brand, think about others who you admire and take inspiration from them.

Positive people can help you see new solutions to old challenges.

The field of real estate is always changing, so no matter if you are a seasoned veteran or just starting out, there is always something to learn.

Challenging Yourself To Become The Best

This blog post is all about challenging yourself to become the best you can be and keeping your “axe sharp” so you can rise above your competition. At Big Block Realty we are constantly striving to become the best…

So what does it take to become the best?

Certainly a lot more than what can be written on this quick blog post, but here are a couple thoughts …

1. Get and stay out of your comfort zone. I believe that
not much happens of any significance when we’re in our comfort zone. When you are out of your comfort zone or uncomfortable, you are growing. Constantly challenge yourself  and don’t be afraid to try out new ideas in your business regularly.

 2. Never give up. Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted. Just because what you’re doing does not seem to be working at first, doesn’t mean it won’t work. It just means that it might not work the way you’re doing it so change your approah and try again. If it was easy, everyone would be rich, skinny, and successful. Whatever it is you’re after, never give up.

3. Focus on what you want to have happen. Remember that old saying, “Whether you think you can do something or not, you are right.” It is so important to keep a positive mindset. 80% of your success will come from this.

4. Measure everything of significance. I swear this is true. Anything that is measured and watched, improves. Keep track of your numbers. Hold yourself accountable and watch your business grow.

Follow these tips and you will become a champion!

To Your Success,
