An Oportunistic Mindset

As professionals in the Real Estate industry, we are often asked to predict the future.  We can follow market trends, stats, rates, rumors and reports, however what remains consistent is an awareness of what is reality; buyers need to buy and sellers need to sell.  This is the profession we have chosen, our job doesn’t shift, the market does. 


So, what does 2024 look like? It looks like time to overcome external obstacles to reach our collective goals with an Opportunistic Mindset. 


How often have each of us purchased Dr. Seuss’s book, Oh The Places You’ll Go!! for a child, a high school graduate, or a college graduate?  This is a perfect message for any career-minded individual looking for the motivation to move through life seizing new opportunities through an open lens, abundant with ambition, goals, joy and kindness. This is a fantastic foundation for a proper mental attitude. 


Where are you on the confidence meter with your business as you wind down 2023 and ramp up toward 2024? Where are you shifting your focus? Hopefully you are maintaining your focus on people, positivity and purpose.  Will you take these last few weeks of the year to look back and ask yourself what if anything, you need to change? Better yet, begin by creating a clear picture of what you choose to have your business represent in the coming year. This means making it happen versus being complacent and letting it happen. Your mental mindset will determine the trajectory of your business. This is your Real Estate mental game. 


Too often we see real estate agents fight against themselves and be their worst enemy. Some may over-try, some express the words “I cannot” versus “I will”, some only focus on financial gain and some spread a negative value over the industry during market challenges. Our prediction for 2024 is a shift toward success for those sales professionals who are intentional in their actions though positivity and execution in lieu of adverse over thinking. Our community that we surround ourselves with is authentic. With calm minds, we choose to make the commitment to bring value that is permanent and create habits that help us rise to peak performance.
