• A great first quarter sets the tone for the rest of the year.
  • Prepare for a nasty media cycle in this election year, which will be difficult to escape.
  • Negativity absorbs bad news like a sponge. Be proactive to guard yourself against it.

Negative thinking sours your day and poisons your real estate career. I know, you didn’t start out trying to be negative. So what happened along the way that led you there?

Maybe it was a bad morning, a tax bill or the result of surfing the news.

Whatever the reason, negative thinking is toxic to your success in real estate. It’s a drain on your energy, stops you from taking valuable risks and turns off the people you talk with.

Nobody likes a “Negative Nelly” — but rather than tell you that directly, what typically happens is that your opportunities disappear without apparent reason.

Today, we’re going to show you how to overcome that negativity and focus on being positive, upbeat and optimistic. You’ll witness immediate results in your career including easier communication with prospects, and once you start hearing “yes” more often, you’ll see that being optimistic builds on itself.
