#8 Choose Your “Hard” – 8 Traits of a Great Real Estate Agent

Agent RecruitingSuccess in any endeavor often involves choosing one’s “hard.” In the realm of real estate, as in life, you often have to choose your “hard.” Both success and stagnation come with their own sets of challenges, but it’s the choices you make that determine your path.

Here’s an expanded look at this concept and how it applies to the world of real estate:

The “Hard” of Frustration and Financial Struggles

For many, the “hard” of frustration and financial struggles is a familiar one. It’s the challenge of not having enough money, struggling to make ends meet, and feeling trapped by financial constraints. This path can be disheartening and limiting.

The “Hard” of a Busy Calendar and Appointments

On the other hand, the “hard” of a busy calendar and appointments is equally demanding. It’s the challenge of juggling a packed schedule, meeting with clients, managing listings, and constantly being on the move. This path can be physically and mentally exhausting.

Relationships and Health

In life, choosing your “hard” extends beyond your career. It’s hard to be in a loving, healthy relationship, but it’s also hard to be in a toxic one that drains your energy and happiness. Similarly, it’s hard to stay in great shape and prioritize your health, but it’s also hard to be out of shape and face the consequences.

The Value of Courage and Hustle

The underlying message here is that everything worth achieving takes courage and effort. It’s the hustle, the daily grind, and the willingness to face challenges head-on that lead to success. Whether it’s building a business, going on multiple listing appointments, or pushing yourself physically, mental toughness is developed by embracing discomfort and persevering.

The Motivation to Succeed

Finally, there’s the “hard” of watching someone else succeed while you stand on the sidelines. This can be a powerful motivator. It’s the reminder that opportunities exist, and they are there for those who are willing to put in the work and make the necessary sacrifices.

In conclusion, choosing your “hard” is a fundamental aspect of achieving success in real estate, just as it is in life. It’s the recognition that both paths come with their own difficulties, but it’s the choices you make and the effort you put in that ultimately determine your outcomes.

So, embrace the challenges, build your mental toughness, and pursue your goals with courage and hustle. Success awaits those who are willing to choose their “hard”!
