So you’ve decided to pursue a career in real estate. Is this your first career or are you transitioning from something else? Thinking of the hard work, training, exam, and business-building activities ahead of you might seem overwhelming, but you’ve got a goal! With planning and determination, and a little help on the way, you can achieve success.
Define Your Big Why
No matter how good you are at studying and progressing toward your goals, you will likely come across obstacles in your journey. Despite the challenges, successful people find a way to prevail.
What keeps productive people going? They know their “big why.”They know the main reason or reasons that keep them focused on what they are doing.
If you’re leaning toward a career in real estate, maybe, it IS about the money. Real estate can be a lucrative profession. More often though, other factors inspire people. Here are some reasons people choose a career in real estate:
- Unlimited earning potential
- Quick entry to the profession
- Potential to help people through life-changing, emotional events
- Manage your own business
- Flexible schedule to suit your lifestyle
- Opportunities to meet interesting people
So, what’s your “big why”?
If you’re not sure, it’s time to figure it out. This reason or reasons will help keep you inspired when the going gets tough. It’s true that all the perks of being a business owner come with responsibilities. As a self-employed individual, you may need to be more disciplined and work harder in the beginning than someone in a 9-5 job, but when you do, the possibilities are endless.
When determining your “big why”, ask yourself questions like these:
- Why do you get out of bed in the morning?
- What pushes you forward in your lows?
- What brings you the greatest joy in life?
- What are your greatest strengths?
- How do you want to be remembered by others?
These might be tough questions but reflecting on your answers can help you understand who you are, and who you want to become in the future.
Each person’s “big why” will be unique. For some, it will be family-related; providing security or being able to spend more time together. For others, it’s their legacy; making a mark and be remembered as someone who positively touched the lives of thousands.
If you can find a business you are passionate about, you’ll be fulfilled in the end. Your “big why” will be your motivation and inspiration to persevere through challenges and come out even stronger than before.
