One of the biggest things I realized I’ve been doing is stopping the process MYSELF rather than letting the buyer stop it. I’ve had a fear or misconception that I am moving too fast for them and have wanted to give prospects time to “sleep on it.” I realize now that I have been self sabotaging, and to keep going full steam ahead unless they tell me otherwise.
Another thing I realized from the training is that I have been the biggest one standing in the way of my success. I sometimes get discouraged when I see my peers selling homes when I’m not, and I automatically start blaming myself, thinking it’s me, thinking I’m doing something wrong, etc. It’s not a new concept, but Jason helped me to remember that attitude is everything, and whether or not I believe I will succeed, I’m right.
So going forward, I am going to believe that everyone who walks in my door is going to buy a house from me, I’m going to sell them on their first visit, and I’m going to believe in myself enough to take them through the process!
