12 action steps from Steve David to make 2013 your best year thus far:
1. Acknowledge that you cannot sell Real Estate sitting on your rear-end
2. Get rid of your baggage, whoever or whatever is bothering you needs to be jettisoned. Either forgive them, or forget them.
3. Make a commitment to make something positive happen every day. Whether it's sending a referral, make a sale, take a listing, make a cold call, stop by a FSBO, something, anything that will generate income.
4. Refuse to be complacent, If you're not being productive, (a money making activity) get productive or quit. Eliminate self induced BS.
5. Fix your problems yourself, don't look outside of you in the human sense for the cure to your lack of productivity.
6. Quit worrying, most of what you worry about will never happen and the balance you can't do much about. And stop complaining, no one else (human wise) cares about your problem.
7. What everyone else does is irrelevant, become your own standard of excellence. you're all you need to be better than you are.
8. Rejoice in problems, you wouldn't have a job if there weren't any.
9. Do something every day you didn't think you could. Whether it's making a cold call, calling someone you've been putting off, or telling someone you Love them and you've been scared to do so.
10. Enjoy being by yourself, find peace within yourself, enjoy inner silence. You've got to make yourself happy before anyone else can help.
11. The next time you're angry, stop whatever you're doing and deal with that anger. Find the underlying cause, and put it to bed NOW. Anger begets anger, and stupid is usually the only result of something done in anger.
12. What would you do if you weren't afraid to fail? Now do it. The failing was in the not doing it in the first place.
Hope this turns out to be the best year of your life!
