Daily/Weekly- Find a quiet, peaceful place in your home at a time of the day or night you will not be disturbed. Try to clear your mind. Don’t worry if it takes a few days or weeks to learn how to effectively clear your mind. It takes practice and here is how to begin: Start by doing some deep breathing exercises to relax. Take slow deep breaths breathing in through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. Sit upright in a sturdy but comfortable chair making sure you stay alert and focused. Laying down may cause you to get sleepy and lose your concentration. The goal here is to work on focus and visualization in order to direct your thoughts where you want them to go. Start picturing what you want your real estate business to look like. See yourself working with wonderful people who love you and want to refer business to you on a continual business. See a busy office setting with you at a large desk making phone calls, negotiating big deals, signing contracts. See yourself on appointments listing homes and showing buyers. Visualize yourself busy in these realtor activities just as if you were watching a very successful real estate agent on TV or in the movies. (This busy, highly producing Realtor is who are going to become). This almost seems magical and it is at first until it becomes your vision, your reality and your show!
We all know how very important our physical and mental health is and our financial health follows in this same category as a high priority. If you are stressed about money, it affects you physically and mentally causing worry and fret. Did you know that when you worry about a lack of anything you attract it to you? Think about this ….You always get exactly what you worry about, fret about and ask for. If you think, “I don’t have enough money” that is what the universe hears you asking for and gives it to you….” not enough money”. This is not only the law of attraction but also how our minds work as well. The subconscious mind is designed to act on your thoughts and fulfill those innermost desires by creating situations that satisfy what you want most, in this case, “not enough money” . If you flip that thought around to one of abundance instead of lack and say something like, “ I am so fortunate to have beautiful clients who love me and want to work with me. They provide a 5 million dollar business (or $150,000) each year), Thank you to my clients. I will continue to provide you outstanding service.
The subconscious goes to work in the same way fulfilling your innermost desires for that $150,000. It is really amazing how this works. And if you make just this one small change in your thoughts, it will absolutely change your entire life! So be cognizant of what you think about every day, financially and otherwise, and what happens when your mind wanders. It is easy to default back to negative thinking. Just focus on what you really want your life to look like and who you want to have in it and it will happen to you just as you desired.
I have always been a big proponent of journaling. Writing your thoughts down is such a powerful way to affirm your intentions and discover things about yourself that can further your personal and professional growth.
Set aside some time each day to write in your journal. Bedtime is a good time as your day is done and a good time to reflect on what events took place that day.
So as we stay the course in the direction of real estate in this exercise I want you to start thinking about and writing down what you believe your big WHY is! Ask yourself these questions. Why did you choose this career? What gets you excited about i? What is your major purpose for doing real estate? Is it for the money or your family or some other reason? In order to achieve great things in whatever endeavor you undertake, you must have a major purpose for doing it, and a reason why. That why is the thing that drives you to get up in the morning and excites you to greet the day with enthusiasm. It pushes you out the door despite the obstacles you know you will have to face and it keeps you juiced to keep going and going until you achieve your goal This is your motivation. Think of this just like when you are determining motivation with a buyer or seller. What is their Why for buying or selling a home. It is the location, schools , upsize, downsize? The same thing applies to you personally. In order for you to achieve your goals and dreams you must know what your motivation or Why is as well.
Next, start writing down your goals, beginning with what you want to make income wise, how many homes you want to sell, who you want to sell them to. Write down who you might like to meet, what activities or tasks that you will want to accomplish this week and for the coming month(s) that you know will introduce you to more people and grow your business . Be very specific and take time to go crazy with your pen, just write down your hopes and dreams and what you love about your career. Just know what you want and you WILL get it!! This is your journal, so who is going to see it, but YOU!!
End your writings each day with a written gratitude prayer. Just Thank God and the universe for all you currently have and then Thank them for what you are about to receive. If your thoughts are focused on abundance in all things in your life, that is EXACTLY what you will receive.
