IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME!
We all have someone or something that totally works our nerves and gets under our skin! It may be a colleague; perhaps it's the agent on the other side of your transaction; hopefully it's not the person you wake up next to every morning!
When you're out in the field moving and shaking, wheeling and dealing, you tend to move quickly because there's always a task to accomplish. Sometimes our busyness makes us easily irritated, causing us to snap. It's also very easy to mirror someone else's energy so if they're cranky or rude or arrogant or sad, if we're not careful, we can transfer those emotions into our own world. When we allow someone or something to dictate our mood, we lose! We miss out on our blessings. And the worst thing to do is blame everyone else or everything else for your sour mood, lack of production or shortcomings. Say it from your gut, "IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME!"
We have the power to control our destiny. We manage the level of success we have or do not have in real estate. It's not the market, it's not the broker, it's not the inventory, it's not the interest rates. It's us! This sounds so cliche but success is a choice. It's a decision we make that must be supported by hard work and discipline. So remember, when trials and tribulations come your way (and they will come because they are a part of the process) and when negative people try to steal your joy, combat all of that with this simple mantra - "IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME" - and turn it around. You're worth it!
