One of our favorite topics to talk about with our loyal listeners is mindset. But, not how you’re normally used to hearing about it. For us, mindset isn’t about sitting around in yoga pants all day visualizing or manifesting, but in taking real action to make the goals and dreams we wrote down, a reality. For so many agents, the thought about what it will take to make all those goals come to pass is really painful. Why is that? After two decades of coaching, we’ve found that the gap between where you are now and where you need to go in order to have the lifestyle you’ve imagined is not as big and cumbersome as you think.
Today we’re really getting ‘into the weeds’ as we discuss more numbers that you need to know in order to catch that elusive ‘freedom’ that you got into real estate for. Contrary to what you may think, freedom doesn’t mean zero commitments. In fact, freedom in real estate means a monthly commitment to your new monthly lifestyle level. But, how do you motivate yourself to get there?
Remember that motivation comes from revisiting why you got into this business, so what does freedom mean to you and your family? Some define freedom as being able to travel to faraway places, live wherever you want, not have a traditional boss, be able to work from home, be debt free and the list goes on…Whatever your personal reason, your motivation will come from remembering those reasons and then taking action to get to the monthly numbers you ran based on your goals.
Are you having trouble defining freedom? Here’s a few questions we like to have our coaching clients ask themselves to help get focused:
When I have been the most motivated in the past, it was because I….?
Three people I know who are more motivated than I am are:
What makes them tick?
What works for me?
What or who do I need to get help from to get serious about it?
