In my years of experience with coaching clients to maximize their success, I have created powerful tips to help accelerate progress. The first of these is to get clear on exactly what “success” means to you. I can’t tell you how many agents I have worked with who have a general idea that they want to be successful but they don’t really know where they want to be professionally 12 months from now.
Ideal Business Visualization
Usually I help clients clarify their goals by giving them an “Ideal Business Visualization.” I ask them to visualize doing work they love, the number of hours they would like to do it, who they want to be interacting with and the level of income they would like to be making. This takes the mystery out of “success” and they become crystal clear on how they would know if they were successful. I ask them to write down their desired income and the number hours per week that they are willing to work. Then I ask them “how committed are you to reaching your goals.” The ones that answer 100 percent are the ones who have a 100 percent chance of achieving what they want. Commitment is the determining factor. What is your commitment level?
What do you want to manifest in 12 months?
I also ask clients what they would like to manifest in their personal lives 12 months from now. They usually take a good look at areas like relationships, fun and recreation and their own overall health and well-being. It becomes apparent that balance between personal and professional life is crucial for a successful long term career in real estate. No one wants to become wildly successful at the expense of their marriage and family.
How do you see yourself?
The biggest obstacle to obtaining success is how you think of yourself. If you spend your day putting yourself down, then you will never move forward. Be conscious of how you talk and think about yourself and when it turns negative, stop yourself. There is always something to be happy about and loving yourself is certainly worth celebrating.
Through clarity of vision, believing in yourself and a commitment to taking the steps to achieve your goals, there is not much that can stop you.
