Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : November 2008

Seriously...Let's Talk.

Seriously...Let's Talk. 

I wrote a lighthearted post recently called...Are you thinking of letting your license go?

and the response has been surprising to me. This is obviously a subject that many of you are pondering. The question touched many a heart and mind and evidently has been on the tongue of more than a few.wondering.jpg Wondering image by Amadeo78

I can only give you my personal view of this question and maybe a few questions of my own that will help you to make your own decision.

In my book, this is really heavy stuff. When I decided to get my license it was because I knew it was what I wanted to do.

I was oblivious to the ups and downs of the market and even today I hold tight to my ... "nothing could be greater than to be a Real Estater," attitude.

No it's not as easy as it was but I didn't go into this thinking it was going to be easy in the first place.

Don't just jump out of the business like a frog out of a frying pan.

Grab a pen and paper and start writing. It's important to get your thoughts on paper. At least work these thoughts through in your mind and then listen to your heart.

First of all...why did you get into this business? Because the market was hot...or for a profession?

What do you like about it?

What do you dislike about it?

Are you willing to sacrifice your past for a different future?

Could you do more to make it successful or are you doing everything the right way?

What do you envision for your future? Does it include being in RE?

Have you written your goals out in black and white?

Are you clear on what you have to do to become successful in this business?

Could it be fear that is stopping you from being successful?


Next approach:

What would you rather be doing? Does that include Real Estate?

Do you awaken with a good attitude each day?

If you do get out of Real Estate how will your attitude affect your next position?

Are you generally happy? Take Real Estate away and would you be happier?

Are you feeling sorry for yourself or spending time worrying about the future?

Could you put that time towards expanding your RE business?


I don't claim to have any answers. Only questions. These are all questions I have posed to myself therefore I know my answers.

This business is in need of retaining each and every ethical, responsible, professional, caring individual we can muster.

I want to remain in Real Estate and continue to be successful. This is a challenge I must live up to daily and with a good positive attitude.

I wish you the best of luck with whatever you decide. I wish prosperity, happiness, security and fun for each and everyone of my Active Rain friends. I hope this helps.

My advice...hang on.

Later in the rain~Deb
