I know, I know… I got you all invested and then just disappeared from the face of the Earth. For that, I apologize. I have been learning so much about myself and my worth over these past few months. I wanted to take a moment and fill you in on what has been going on in #mylifeinrealestate.
As a new agent, I spent many hours in classes and forums and meetings and conventions and rallies and, well I could go on and on. In the midst of it all, I made a very important realization.
I can’t be of service to my community if I only surround myself with other real estate professionals.
Duh, right? It took a year for me to realize this. I love my colleagues and I learn so much from them- but they probably won’t be (personally) needing my services. All of the work I have done honing down these particularly specialized skills may go to waste if I don’t get out there and use them in real life.
Once I did, I learned- I am damned good at what I do.
I have also acknowledged that it is okay to have pride in your accomplishments. So much of me is put into every transaction that I should revel in the accolades and gratitude shown to me because I have worked hard for them. I used to look in the mirror every morning and repeat positive affirmations about myself, many times in vain, but this much is true- I have the ability to level up in this career. And, I intend to do just that.
One more thing I’ve gained… You become what you believe.
I still believe in being a kind and transparent person. I believe that good things happen to good people. I believe that I have a purpose on Earth. I believe in friendships, love, honesty, integrity, hope, and joy. I believe in me.
