How to Keep Yourself Motivated when Working as a Realtor
When you deal with any types of sales, it is crucial to learn how to motivate yourself each day. Sure, if you work for an agency, you will benefit from some motivational coaching sessions from time to time, but it will be up to you to motivate yourself at the beginning of each day, before every presentation and especially during the market’s lowest points. Each person needs a different type of motivation. As such, we have gathered some proven motivational techniques, so that you can find the ones that most suit your personality.
1. Build your sales confidence
Being good at your job is one of the best ways to stay motivated, and it should be the foundation of every career. If you don’t know how to start building your sales confidence, consider attending some real estate coaching programs. Tom Ferry International has a great coaching program for beginner agents, which is focused on this precise factor: building confidence, and making the most from core real estate. This real estate coaching program can also teach you how to plan your time, how to deliver consistent results, and most importantly, how to develop the right mindset to stay committed to your plan.
2. Set clear goals
Having some clear objectives is a great way to always be motivated to work harder. However, it is utterly important for those goals to be as concise as possible, and it is also essential to establish milestones and monitor your road to success. For example, if your goal is to make more money, consider just how much more money you want to make. Choose an exact amount and choose a reasonable deadline for your goal. Break your goal into smaller objectives and set milestones at different time intervals to make sure that you are actually getting closer to your goals. For example, a smaller objective for making more money could be improving your networking skills, generating more leads, being more active online, or any other task that can help you grow your business and eventually make more money.
3. Find your success mantra
We all have those people on Facebook that always share motivational quotes and let’s face it, most of the quotes are useless and sappy. However, if you manage to find those words that actually speak to you as an individual, they can be quite efficient in helping you achieve your goals. So, do some research online and find the phrase that best defines your goals, and make a conscious effort to integrate that phrase in your daily routine. Whether you set it as a desktop wallpaper, write it in your planner or turn it into a tattoo, motivational words of wisdom can be of great help during hard moments.
