I woke up this morning with a lot of self-doubt surrounding my goals. I had a bad night’s sleep, which is never helpful, and of course this triggers all kinds of negative BS.
And what does this have to do with getting listings?
Because I know one thing we all have to do which is the best way to get listings.
Have control over yourself.
“For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories”—— Plato
This is one thing I know for sure.
The surest way to success, in however you define it, whether it’s more listings, more joy, more boyfriends, more money, more cars, more inner peace, etc is to conquer yourself.
And, I believe, this is the most difficult thing for all of us to do in life.
For us to conquer our addictions, our doubts, our fears, our habits, our self-talk….these are all things that are difficult to do.
But when you conquer something important, something that you know isn’t good for you, how do you feel? You feel elated. You feel unstoppable. You feel energized. And for me, I feel joy.
And from that spot, you can do anything.
Full transparency, I have conquered many things in my life and I can tell you, firsthand, they weren’t easy. Some were significant. Some were small.
For example, I have conquered cigarette addiction, drinking alcohol, fear of calling expireds, fear of working out consistently, fear of telling people how I feel, fear of calling probate attorneys, eating meat, among other things.
Conquering ourselves takes a lot of energy. It takes a lot of perseverance.
But the rewards of productivity, satisfaction, listings, financial success and joy in your life are worth it all.
You will get more listings.
You will have more joy.
You will have more peace.
This I know is true.
