When you are considering throwing in the towel because you've had more bumps and bruises than you think you can take, I would like to ask you to think again. Please, think again.
We all go through hard times and times that make us wish we were somewhere else, doing something else either more fulfilling or simply something that pays more money. I am reminded of Vince Lombardi's famous speech that has lived in the hearts of many men and women.
Real Estate can't be directly compared to football but then what can be compared other than more football? I believe within this heartfelt speech is the true basis of "be true to one's self."
Yes, that's what a female gets out of this speech, men. You could and probably will disagree with me fervently but hey, that's what makes the world go around. Vince Lombardi's famous tagline was
"Winning isn't everything; it's the only thing" quote by Vince Lombardi. Read Vince's whole speech at
To some degree, I can't disagree with that.
Wait, wait, wait.
Don't leave yet!
We win in so many different ways. If I were walking into the street and a bus was coming at me and my husband was standing next to me, I would push him out of the way. Even if I met with my demise I would consider myself the winner. Simply because he lived.
This may sound like a strange twist but it isn't. As long as you, yourself, are happy with yourself, then others around you cannot bring you down. Neither can a lack or inconsistency of business. If you believe your business will come then it will.
My goal here is to convince (con (with) Vince (Lombardi) how funny! My goal here is to convince you to hang in with Real Estate if you like it! Don't take a break now and then say you'll try it again later when the market turns! So will every other disgruntled agent in the US. You see? To stay ahead and be ahead when the market breaks...now is the time for your wins. Don't let down on your game now!
You can win by working twice as hard as the next person. You can win by placing your best foot forward, looking out after the other person (client or family or friend) before your own needs. You can win by making it through each battle with a good attitude. You can win by going to sleep at night knowing you have done the best for all who are around you, even if the consequences were not directly beneficial to you in the physical sense.
You can be a winner and you can be successful even when the purse strings are tight. When they do loosen up...and they will, it will come back to you tenfold.
Real Estate isn't going anywhere.
Real Estate Just Is.
