My daughter followed me into real estate and began her career about 4 years ago. She worked diligently daily and long hours. She did it all, door dropping, open house, sphere of influence, cold calling. We sat together that Christmas holiday and she told me she was going to give up after the first of the year. She had been at it about 6 months with nothing to show for it. I told her that she was actually in the midst of here real estate college career and that giving up now would truly make all of her efforts a waste of time and money. She listened and pushed forward. The Spring of that next year everything paid off. Now 4 years later she is one of the most successful new agents in the business. Hard work pays off. Don't be a quitter. Make sure you know that you chosen the right field to begin with.
This is a great quote selection. In real estate, too many people drop out before the reach the desired level of success.
Great quote. One person comes to mind instantly.
Conrad Allen Excellent point! Many people especially the newbies don't have the staying power or resources to hang in there to see some success.
This is a great quote- hard to know the ones who were close to success but what is sad is the idea that they "had to drop out" - most people just give up and fade away.
Once it's tasted the revelation kicks in Conrad. If you're looking for miracles they're not too common but persistence seems to always pay dividends if given the focus. We will never know how close we were without it. I often ask where would we be without thinkers like Edison.
Good morning Conrad. The difference between success and failure is a very thin line, what a difference it would make, if the extra effort is put into the goal.
Good Sunday morning Conrad. I have heard that every failure brings with it the seed for potential success. I am not sure of the numbers who fail. There's nothing wrong with failure. Just don't give up.
Conrad - Those that drop out will never really know how close they were.
Conrad, very true! Excellent question.
We have all seen plenty who gave up too soon, but none of them "had" to drop out, they just lost faith.
So true Conrad. If you have the never give up attitude you may get there. I think this really applies to our work. Excellent quote.
