I’ll bet you’re coming into real estate from a former career–a career where you knew the answers–where you were confident. I came from a two-decade career as a musician (I actually started playing piano when I was four). Then, I went into real estate. I remember so clearly my first few months as a real estate agent. My favorite phrase was “I don’t know but I’ll find out”. In truth, I knew very little! (and had no training). Sometimes I was so humiliated and frustrated I almost quit. After all, I knew the answers in music. Or, if I didn’t know, I was still confident in my abilities. Not so in real estate. Ring a bell?
It’s easy to focus on what you don’t know, on all the disappointments, the rejection, the feeling that you’ll never ‘get it’. But, that’s the kiss of death. Instead, you have to focus on your strengths.
