The Power of Sustained Effort

Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in five years.
Many agents set ambitious goals and have a strong desire to achieve significant results within a year, such as transacting xx amount of homes per year, or growing their database by the hundreds. However, the reality is that meaningful progress often takes time and consistent effort. Unrealistic expectations for what can be accomplished in a single year may lead to disappointment and frustration if those goals are not met.
On the other hand, agents often underestimate the potential of consistent action over a longer timeframe, such as five years. Over the course of five years, sustained effort and continuous improvement can lead to substantial growth.
It all starts with today….

Don’t underestimate what you can do TODAY to make a real impact on your business. Remember that it’s the accumulation of small actions that can lead to substantial outcomes over time. Pick up the phone, send that overdue text, study the market and get out there!

  • Embrace small progress: Focus on what you can do today and take consistent action. 
  • Cultivate discipline and consistency: Remember that even small steps, like following up with a old lead from 3 years ago, can and will add up.
  • Review and adjust: Regularly evaluate your progress and adjust your strategies as needed. Assess what’s working and what isn’t, and make necessary modifications to keep moving forward effectively.
  • Stay motivated: Maintain your motivation by setting meaningful short-term milestones and reminding yourself of the progress you’re making.
  • Be patient: Rome wasn’t built in a day, and meaningful accomplishments often require time and perseverance. Stay patient and committed to your goals.
