One of my peeps in the Collective asked me this weekend what’s the one thing we listing agents should concentrate on every day to be successful.
Without hesitation, I answered with one phrase.
Work on physical and mental strength.
How do you handle bad family news? (yep, my Father was admitted to the hospital after collapsing this week)
How do you take those 5 a.m. conference calls? (yep, had one those this week)
How can you have the energy to meet with sellers at 8 p.m. via conference call? (had to do that also this week)
How do you stay calm when you have a big escrow go off the rails and your client is upset and yelling? (check, that happened as well)
Here is what I do everyone morning to strengthen my mental and physical self.
Develop a strong morning routine.
Here’s what I do:
. Meditate for 10 to 20 minutes.
. Do 400 crunches and 5 yoga poses.
. Swim or lift weights.
. Shower and dress for the day.
. Have a healthy breakfast.
. Journal and write out my goals.
BAM! Ready for the day in spades.
Am I 100% perfect at this routine…no. But that is my goal.
I think the key is to make a routine of your own that nourishes your body and soul.
And the KEY word is “routine”. Strive to do it everyday (ok, at least 6 days a week).
In doing so, you will be able to handle the craziness of your Unleashed listing business.
You will feel better.
You will look better.
You will be better.
