I’ve spent a great deal of my life trying to get a foot in the door of the world’s largest real estate company. What I have learned is that I was so overwhelmed by the competition that I never got that foot in the door. I was always the one with the better resume and the more impressive portfolio. I was the one who had the higher GPA and had the best job. I always tried to get the job, and then I always tried to get it a second time.
It’s like trying to get a foot in the door at a top company. You have a great resume and you have a good portfolio. But do you really have the experience to succeed? Do you have a track record of success? Do you have the right attitude and you can get the job? Unfortunately, in this business, you probably don’t. The fact is, you’re never going to get that foot in the door at a top company.
I have to say this is a very good point. It is true that you have to have the right attitude and the right experience to succeed in any profession. However, I think what happens more often than not is when youre not able to do those things. In high school I didn’t want to be a doctor or lawyer. I wanted to be a mechanic or a mechanic’s helper.
I think this is a big problem for the real estate industry. Just like with fashion, if youre not able to dress well or are just not good at it, youll get stuck in that industry. In my case it was a problem in high school. I didnt like to wear heels and I didnt like to wear dresses. I remember trying to find a job that was within my skill set and I kept getting rejected.
But now you’re a first-class real estate agent and you can do just about anything. That’s because it’s not just what you can do, it’s how you do it. I think people in real estate think they just have to be able to do everything. But that’s not the truth. It’s all about how you approach a problem and how you solve it. When I first started, I wanted to sell everything and buy nothing.
I used to wear dresses, but I dont anymore. I wear shorts. I think its a whole lot easier to focus on the details the more you’re in shorts. Its so much easier to concentrate on the details if you’re moving around, while its hard to get a perspective on your surroundings if you’re in shorts.
If you think it’s easier, youre wrong, because when you get into shorts, you’ll realize that, while it looks easy, it’s actually not so simple. In general, the more you concentrate on a task, the more time you spend on it. As a result, you need to think about the task for a long time before you can start it, so you get more from your time than you do from your time spent on it.
Your brain is like the computer that keeps a record of everything you do. It is also your memory. Everything you do is stored in one way or another on your brain. As such, you might think that to move from one apartment to another, you just have to have your brain change. But in fact, you’re actually doing it mentally, because you’re building up mental images and pictures of the new space.
It might sound trivial when you say it like that, but building up mental images and pictures of your new space can affect your whole attitude about it.
Building up mental images and pictures of your new space is not just about a change in the physical space itself. If you have a new apartment you may not notice the differences that you did to the space you moved into. You may notice the changes because you’re more observant and you notice the lack of the items that you thought you’d need to live in the new space.
