The big but

Usually when people talk of big buts, you would possibly think of the most dreaded question women ask – “does my bum look big in this?” however that’s not the but I’m talking about. There’s a big but that gets in the way of a lot of people’s aspirations – and it’s simple that – but! How many times have you said “I’d do that…but” or other similar phrases? It could be that there’s a big but holding you back from your true potential.


In real estate, there are a lot of things that crop up that a lot of us would rather not have to do. I’ve mentioned some of these before. Things like calling a vendor with no news, or bad news. Like most jobs, real estate agents have to do things they’d rather not. Procrastination is rife regardless of industry, and it’s those people who get the buts out of the way that become real success stories.


As we approach the end of the year, the number of times I hear “but” seems to escalate. There seems to be no better excuse than a new year to put things off and convince yourself that you have a legitimate reason for not achieving things. If you are going to make a success of yourself as a realtor, you need to leave your buts behind and concentrate on getting things done. Real estate waits for no-one!

Making the decision to venture into real estate is a big one, and it requires creative thinking and a can-do attitude. There’s little, if any, room for procrastination and second guessing. Your customers want you to act with conviction, and most importantly, they want you to act. Letting your ifs and buts get in the way isn’t something a real estate client will look kindly upon, so neither should you!
