1. Start your day on a positive note. Look in the
mirror every morning and compliment yourself. Whether it is your outfit
or your attitude, self-assurance can go a long way. If you do not
believe in yourself then you can't expect others to, so start your day
off on a positive and confident note!
2. Make a to-do list and check off your completed tasks. There
is nothing new about this idea, but the stats are in and it works! To
feel a sense of relief and accomplishment, jot down your daily to-do
list at the beginning of the day and cross off each task once you have
3. Reward yourself. Treat yourself when you've
closed a sale or won a new listing. The reward can be as little as
getting some ice cream, or as big as taking a vacation. Regardless of
what it might be, knowing there is trophy at the end of the finish line
will definitely make the race worth running.
4. Speak positive affirmations. Remember the saying,
"I think I can, I think I can"? Although this saying comes from a
children's book, it serves a purpose for all of us. Repeating positive
affirmations can have a powerful effect on the brain and can motivate
you far past the task at hand.
5. Do what you can and let go of the rest. To state
it simply, some things are in your control while other things are not.
You cannot make the sellers accept your buyer's offer, but you can do
your very best to make sure you wrote a compelling offer. Focus on what
you can control and let go of the rest.
6. Check in with a fellow Realtor. Ask a fellow
realtor to share their tasks for the week with you and, in return, share
your to-do list with them. Check in with them to see how they are
coming along and have them do the same for you. Being accountable and
encouraged can help you feel achieved and inspired.
7. Read, listen or watch positive information. There
is a plethora of inspirational books and videos out there so surely
there is one that fits your taste. From self-improvement to the
"secrets" of top producers, if you are looking for a guide to make a
change in your life or business, there is likely a resource out there to
8. Think about your accomplishments. You have done
some remarkable things in your real estate career that are worthy of
being proud of. The next time you're feeling overwhelmed, make a list of
all of the great things you have accomplished in your personal and
professional lives and tell yourself another big victory is just around
the corner. Attitude is everything!
