RISMEDIA, July 22, 2009-In today’s changing market where the predominant energy is fear, your challenge is to be extremely vigilant about what you focus on. Why is your deliberate focus more important now than ever? What are you giving attention to? If you’re giving attention to what you don’t want, such as lack, that is what you’ll be getting. It may also show up for you as attracting unmotivated, indecisive, and uncommitted clients. However, change your mindset and you’ll be attracting your ideal clients-clients that are appreciative of your services.
The Panic Problem
In my 10 years of experience empowering real estate agents to reach their goals, I’ve coached many clients who were subconsciously attracting unwanted outcomes. They came to me feeling panicked and worried about market conditions and slowing sales.
They were diligently working to get their listings sold, but their tried-and-true marketing activities were no longer working. What was the problem? Their focus had shifted with their fearful state of mind.
Are you, as they were, preoccupied with things like:
- How tough the market is?
- How there are too many houses for too few buyers?
- How unlikely it is for your listing to sell?
If you are, you will be creating the very thing you don’t want, which is that your listing won’t sell. So what do you do?
The Power Solution
Sustaining a positive, high energy mindset is key to attracting your desired outcomes. Because it directly impacts your thoughts, beliefs and feelings, you need to work on your mindset daily to ensure that it is working in your favor.
What are you doing for your mind? Did you know that you can create a feng shui for your mind to get your listed houses to sell?
Just as a house is more likely to sell when the energy has been positively enhanced with feng shui, your mind is more likely to create a positive outcome when you have been practicing the Law of Attraction. This powerful tool gives you a step-by-step procedure to become magnetic for abundance, sales, prosperity, and so forth.
Ready to go from panic to power? Here are 5 tips for using the Law of Attraction to help you do just that.
Tip 1: Create a Clear Focus.
Too often I hear my clients say, “I want my listings to sell” without being clear on what their desired sales scenario looks like.
I suggest visualizing your ideal sale. See yourself placing the SOLD sign and declare the number of days the home has been on the market. Ask yourself how the purchase price compares to the asking price. What is your income?
You get the idea. Be clear, detailed, and specific about what you want. Once you are, then choose to focus on only that. Channel your energy with the intention of attracting what you want.
Tip 2: Create Harmony Between Your Energy and Your Desires.
Feel what it feels like to already have what you want. When you do, the energy vibrations you send out into the universe match what you desire, attracting it back to you.
To create that matching energy, visualize in an “as if” mode. In other words, use the power of your imagination to feel “as if” your listings have already sold as quickly, easily, and profitably as you wanted.
What positive feelings are you experiencing? Most agents who do this activity say that they feel confident, satisfied, elated, exhilarated, just plain good, etc.
Whatever your unique feelings, know that the more you experience them, the more you magnetize the events leading up to these feelings to fall into your lap.
Tip 3: Clear Your Mental Clutter.
Your energy needs to flow freely without encountering harmful obstructions so that the Law of Attraction will work for you. Clear away all self limiting beliefs by doing a little soul searching, usually with the help of a professional coach to uncover your subconscious opposing beliefs. These are our blind spots as they sit below the surface of our awareness.
After you have identified these self limiting beliefs, reprogram them to become Empowering Beliefs that are in alignment with what you want. Here is an example of one of the self limiting beliefs that I often hear from my clients, followed by what it sounds like after I helped them reprogram it into an Empowering Belief:
Self limiting belief: “I don’t have what it takes to get my listings sold in a market as tough as this one”
Empowering belief: “I have everything I need to succeed at getting my listings sold in any market”
Now, just how important is it to clear your mental clutter through this transformation of beliefs?
Think about it this way. You wouldn’t risk sabotaging a sale by inviting clients to view a home that was cluttered with boxes or furniture that block freedom of movement. Yet you are probably trying to invite business into a mind that is cluttered with self-limiting beliefs that constrict the flow of energy into your business and block you from getting the very business that you want.
Tip 4: Take Inspired Action and Allow It to Come to You.
Replace action based on fear with action based on intuition. There’s a very good reason for this. When you follow your inspired thoughts with inspired action-steps you are motivated to do by your inner nudgings or hunches-you feel good, energized and joyful. These feelings positively raise your energy vibrations and you become even more magnetic for what you want.
Find a way to quiet your mind so that you can listen to your inner nudgings. Chances are you’ve already experienced what intuition feels like, and you probably have acted on that intuition. That’s an example of inspired action. Begin to appreciate all of your thoughts and feelings so that you are more aware when you do get a hunch. Then act on it.
Tip 5: Follow the Formula.
Properly practice the Law of Attraction to get the results you want. Similar to feng shui, practicing the Law of Attraction requires understanding and consistent implementation on a day-to-day basis.
If you find this challenging to do on your own, know that you are in the good company of many others. Most of my clients find it much easier and more effective to have the ongoing guidance, support, and encouragement that a professional business coach can offer.
Whether going solo or with a coach, the bottom line is that you want to make sure you are correctly following the step-by-step process for the Law of Attraction. Why? Because with the Law of Attraction, “like attracts like” whether wanted or unwanted. To successfully become the deliberate creator of your sales success, become a master of the Law of Attraction.
