Yes, there are a few things.
I wish, instead to the standard non-sense, labeled advise, I had been competled to understand what this business is REALLY about.
Now, if instead of a real estate agent, a National Legue Football player asked, '...advice on path..' do you think anyone would say, "Learn how to play football?" Of course not. The creditial already state that skill is present. What the great coaches all do is to compel players to draw from the strengths they have within themselves. They bring to the players awareness all that they have accomplished to the point and how those accomplishments make them fully prepared to take their game to the next level. The coach DOES NOT get involved in teaching the player to protect the ball and prevent stripping, that is delegated to those who are technicians on strip prevention.
I wish, instead of accepting the notion I'd would make no money for a year, I had asserted my resolve to acheive a different outcome. Be aware, the common guidance will result in the common outcome...95% of newbies never see their 2nd year anniversary.
Looking within, pressing relentlessly towards the truth, persistantly challenging ones acceptance of "why?'- you need to embrace, in it full purity, the answer to "Why entering into the real estate businesss is important to you." Your answer, originating from the highest level of yourself, will provide the strength to endure the challenges that surely lay in your future. Staying centered on this higer lever purpose will prove essential.
Then focus on NOTHING ELSE but getting engaged in transactions.
You learn by doing.
Your Fortune lies in Finishing.
You acccomplish neither warming a stool in a classroom.
The facinating part of being a real estate professional is realizing this business depends on leveraging technologyes and sciences that are on the frontier of human perception. Those in possession of the curious mind will find this a stimulating and rewarding occupation.
Your success, you will discover, will be reliant on your ability to turn perception into action. Your role is to execute each play correctly. When that play ends, the game continues to the next play. Commit yourself to execute the PLAY....the outcome is beyond your control, but the universe has already demonstrated exactly how it will respond to those who act quickly and with commitment.
Had the beginning started in such a manner, maturing into the master craftsman, would not have involved a serpatine paths leading to chasing vapors and catching smoke with a net. With clarity of thought, such temptations will be seen for what they are, and your focus on your purpose undeterred.
Best of success,
