I recently read the inspiring story of Jeannie Rice, a 71 year old grandmother who broke the previous world record of her age group at the Chicago Marathon. Initially, at the age of 35 Jeannie started running to lose a few pounds. Thirty six years later, she is still running and setting records in half marathons also.
In the article I read in Women’s Running, she offered her training secrets that apply to life and real estate.
Persist with discipline, knowing failure is not final.
Do not give up, just because you are not getting instant results with your marketing campaigns. Failures are the stepping stones to success if you take the time to learn from these disappointments. Do not give up, keep trying!
Play some mental games
Find the positive aspect in what may appear as negatives. When you do that more posit ives appear that bolster your spirit. Many athletes picture their routine as well as the end results as part of their mind games–standing at the podium with a medal. In real estate visualize the offer on your listing, the pleasant process and the check that has been wired to your account.
Remember that prehab is better than rehab
Do not push yourself to the point, where you are so tired (injured) that you cannot function and need a long rest to rehab. In other words, you have to realize that real estate is not a 24/7 vocation. Even emergency physicians take time off, enjoy your life.
