There are many experts who like to “share” their “wisdom” about the “secrets” to success. This is especially true in real estate.
From Day One, during my training at Semonin, they brought in national speakers who flooded our minds with success tip after success tip.
It was exhausting.
Given that we were new, how could we possibly do *everything* they said we should do? Half of which wasn’t part of our personal makeup. (Then there’s the tip that says, only do the things you like. hehe)
I’m sure they meant well, in fact, I’m positive. But the truth is, each strategy works only a certain amount. Nothing works every time.
Plus, when each new veteran agent shares their advice, the boat starts to dip below the waterline, as
- the number of tasks,
- the number of words we should be speaking,
- the amount of marketing tactics we should be practicing,
approaches mountain-sized stature.
Here’s my solitary piece of advice::
All you can do, is the best you can do.
That’s just another way of saying, “Do your best!”
Don’t worry about what you’re not doing. Don’t let anyone get you down because you decided to pass on the latest CRM solution that was “changing the way real estate agents work in today’s market.”
Don’t feel bad that you didn’t farm your home neighborhood. Don’t be upset that you decided it was more important to take that special vacation with your wife rather than attend another Realtor convention in Tampa.
Just do your best.
Once you’ve done that, you’ve already won.
