Or, they've given it all they've got and the rewards are just not there for them any longer.

When I was in nursing, ICU burn-out was very common - when one loses a large percentage of their patients, they can only take the losses for so long.

I suppose you could relate that to our business as well...

It's easy to get very caught up in hyper momentum in our business. We have a series of starts and stops going on all the time, beating the crap out of our adrenals. Neglect self care, taking care of everybody else. Then, during lulls, the depression of manic depression kicks in. LOL The only way to keep from burning out is to have a real good business plan, stay in control of your time to the greatest degree possible and balance your lifestyle in a way that's right for you.The sure way to totally burn out is to worry about what other people are doing.

If I had to take a stab at it, I would say that most people need a regular paycheck. If you have a family to support, I can see that. That's probably why many go into it later in life when they already have some equity built up. Others probably just aren't suited for this highly competitive business, it's very stressful even if money does flow in.

One I know to be true is working with difficult clients.  It is one reason why I will sometimes pass on working with them. We can only serve so many people. If we work with ONE client that consumes all of our time, them #1 and #2 quickly come into play.

I have hit burn out before and it wasn't any of those answers. I was making great money, had good people around me and a supportive company. It just happened and I took a breather and looked for a different avenue in real estate to pursue.
