Take Nothing For Granted in Business and Life
Life is full of surprises. Some of them are pleasant, while others can be unexpected and challenging. When we take things for granted, we can become complacent and miss out on opportunities to learn, grow, and improve ourselves. This is especially true in business, where taking things for granted can lead to missed opportunities, lost customers, and even business failure. Did you know that the National Association of Realtors (NAR) 2022 Member Profile Report shows that only twelve percent of 1,526,915 Realtors as of March 2023 earn $100,000 to $149,999 in annual income. That is a staggering 183,230 Realtors that will make this income level.
With Realtors now at 88% FAILING rate, to earn 100k and up. What can they do to decrease this and begin to increase their success? This has been ongoing for decades in our industry and it seems, now the issue is even getting worse. As these numbers rise even higher.
As you may or may not know, we Realtors are independent contractors. So, we do as we please, right? That may very well be our problem. Without regulation, level of guidance, or a big bother out here looking out for us. To help us gain and improve the very vital thing that we need to defeat the 88% FAILING rate. The one important skill set that no one talks about. The most important tool you can give a salesperson is Selling Skills. Ill-advisedly, it is not even offered to the Realtor on a grand level. So, how can we even begin to start reducing our FAILING without having selling skills?
Nonetheless, having selling skills, in both business and life, it's important to approach each day with a sense of gratitude and a willingness to learn. Here are four reasons why:
- You never know what the future holds
Life can be unpredictable, and we never know what's going to happen next. A business that seems to be thriving one day can suddenly be hit by unexpected challenges, such as a market downturn or a natural disaster. By taking nothing for granted, we can prepare ourselves for these challenges and take steps to mitigate their impact.
I recommend you use the Nuclear Mind technique, found on our YouTube community, under the playlist- Nuclear Mind. This will assist you with creating daily motivation and sustaining that motivation throughout the entire day.
- Things can change quickly
In business, the landscape can change rapidly. New competitors can emerge, customer preferences can shift, and technology can evolve. By remaining vigilant and not taking anything for granted, we can be nimbler and more responsive to these changes. This can help us stay ahead of the curve and maintain a competitive edge.
My most valuable gift to you for carrying this out is to use the IGA system with your daily planning. It works and it helps to give you the direction you need for planning out each day for success. Attracting new business and closing more sales.
- Every interaction is an opportunity to learn
Whether we're interacting with customers, colleagues, or friends, every interaction presents an opportunity to learn and grow. By being present in the moment and not taking anything for granted, we can learn from others and improve ourselves. This can help us build better relationships and be more successful in both business and life.
- Gratitude can help us stay grounded
When we take things for granted, we can become complacent and lose sight of what's truly important. By cultivating a sense of gratitude and appreciation for the people and things in our lives, we can stay grounded and focused on what really matters. This can help us build stronger relationships, stay motivated, and achieve our goals.
In conclusion, taking nothing for granted is essential in both business and life. By approaching each day with a sense of gratitude and a willingness to learn, we can be more prepared for the challenges that come our way, more responsive to changes in the landscape, and more successful in our endeavors. So, let's appreciate what we have, stay vigilant, and keep learning and growing!
How do we handle all of this
My best tip for you is to get a mind-setting technique in place that will help you to plan for all four. A daily systematic approach that you can use to plan for your Health, Family, Career, and your Spirituality. This system I have used, since 1993 and to this day, I am still using it. So go for it. All my best, to you. One Love!
