The other day, I needed a bit of help from my broker and sought out her advice. Not only did I get some great ideas from her on business in general, but I walked away with some solid questions that I needed answers to in order to continue my growth as a real estate agent.
The most valuable part of our conversation led me to a new post at AgentGenius, "Why? Finding real estate career motivation in down times.," and to looking for the answer. I've done of a lot of thought on the subject and you'll definitely hear more in the coming weeks at AgentGenius, but I thought you might want to read it and give it all some thought.
I think some people mistook my post for a "I'm feeling down and need to figure out why in the world I would ever want to be a real estate agent, I must be crazy." In reality, it was more about finding what it is that motivates me - something to use as a driving focal point for everything I do. Having the answer would certainly help out on those days where I think I might be crazy for picking such a crazy career, but that wasn't the point. I wanted the answer to fire me up and make me want to strive to be better, learn more, sell more, and be more successful. The kind of motivation that burns within you and makes me say everyday will be an excellent day. The mental exercise has been quite helpful recently and I'm finding out somethings about how I think that I didn't consider before. Thanks to the question of "Why?" and I feeling more focused on my goals and I am building a much clearer path to them.
