It is amazing how things happen in life and why they happen the way they do. As I watched my kids play softball and baseball this weekend, the analogy of life throwing us curveballs came to mind. We are in a current state of change and adjustment in life. We can stay on the bench and watch it pass us by complaining about our circumstances or we can get in the batter’s box and play the game of life. In the analogy of between baseball and life – getting off the bench and playing doesn’t ensure you success. You can stand in the batter’s box and watch the pitcher throw the ball right past you. You could step out of the batter’s box as you swing and miss the ball completely or you can change what you do and get a hit – maybe even a home run.
Business, much like softball and baseball, is a game of focus, determination, dedication and seizing opportunities. Are you doing all that you can to be a success? Are you putting in the time necessary to get results? Are practicing your presentations to get them right? Are you making adjustments according to the situation you are faced with to ensure your success? Are you educating yourself on changes in the industry, trends in the market, and the numbers? Do you have the passion for the “game” of real estate? If not, why not?
In baseball there are different levels of success – Single A, Double A, Triple A, Majors and lastly World Champions. Are you putting yourself in position to be a World Champion of Real Estate? Do you have the right attitude and approach to the business. Right now is the time to get into the game and work on becoming all that you can be as a Realtor. If you need help, find a coach or mentor and grow your business today. Get it? Got it? Good!
