With the biggest superhero movie in history premiering last weekend, we are going to take a deep dive into the villains keeping you from achieving success as a real estate agent. What is holding you back from the success you want to reach? We all have SOMETHING we struggle with that is standing in the way of breakthrough. Maybe you know exactly what that is. Maybe you don’t. Or maybe you only think you know and a blind spot has been hiding your real enemy for a long time. It’s time to unmask your villain on this week’s episode of the Agent Rise Podcast!

You CAN rewrite your story

When limiting beliefs set in, it’s really easy to assume that the things you struggle with will always hold you back and there’s not much you can do about it. Friends, that is an absolute lie! You CAN rewrite your story and achieve success as a result. However, just because it’s possible does not mean it’s easy. Rewriting your story will take discipline and possibly some painful conversations. More often than not, the true identity of the villain in your life has been hiding in a blind spot and it takes coaching and transparency to bring it to light. Stop fighting the wrong enemy and do the work to figure out what is really holding you back. Do you have what it takes? The answer is YES!

With great responsibility comes great power

Yep, you read that right. The majority of our villains are easily slain by taking 100% responsibility for what happens in our life and business. Blaming your lack of achievement and success on anything and everything is an incredible waste of time. Blaming, in general, implies that we are passively helpless to our circumstance and shortcomings. Nothing could be further from the truth! Stop playing the blame game and start taking 100% responsibility for what goes on in your world. When you start seeing yourself as the only entity responsible for your success you begin to not only pursue it but also achieve it.

Consistency is key in order to achieve success

Good techniques are great, but they don’t matter if you can’t stay consistent in your real estate business. This is where a lot of agents struggle, but consistency becomes easier once you have a clear plan that you are totally invested in. You have to believe in the strategy you develop for yourself. You could have the greatest plan in the world, but if you’re not committed to its execution then what you have is NOTHING. Unbelief will kill your consistency and derail you when tougher seasons come. It’s easy to stay consistent when everything is going your way, but you have to learn how to hunker down through changing markets and seasons so that you can achieve the success you are striving for.

Don’t let a fear of lack keep you from abundance

The real villain keeping us from being able to achieve success is our limiting beliefs. We often blame our lack of achievement on the first thing that comes to our mind when we reflect on our obstacles, but the root of almost every single one of those obstacles is usually a lie we believe about ourselves. Maybe it came from things that were spoken over us in childhood. Or maybe we’re letting a past failure define our future. Either way, we are operating out of fear of lack instead of nurturing a mindset of abundance. We limit the resources we spend and the effort we exert because we are terrified of running out of both. Stop believing you will never have enough or be enough to achieve the success you seek. You ARE enough! It’s not that as a new or stuck real estate agent you can’t afford coaching. You can’t afford NOT to be coached. You can’t afford NOT to invest in your future. You are worth so much more than the lies you have believed about yourself. It’s time to unmask your villain and kick butt!

Are you a new or stuck real estate agent who wants to unlock your potential? Maybe you hit a wall in your business a long time ago and you’re finally ready to break through. Well friends, this is the episode for you! Breakthrough starts in your mind before it ever hits your profit margin. Today, I’m going to show you how to master your mentality so that you can stop fearing success and start achieving your goals.

Don’t make this harder than it has to be

Real estate can be both incredibly fun and incredibly challenging all at the same time. Sometimes the challenge can seem to outweigh the reward. Especially, when we don’t know how to let go of what we can’t control and start owning the baggage of our business. We constantly replay the frustrations of every transaction over and over again until it dominates our every thought. Look, I’ve been there. We all have. It’s completely overwhelming and it makes us feel so swamped with work that it seems impossible to take on any more transactions or grow our business. The truth is, if we really examined our calendars we are far busier in our minds than we are on paper. It’s time to press stop on the toxic mental replay!

It’s time for a spring cleaning

Your closet isn’t the only thing that needs an overhaul this April. One of the major ways to unlock your potential as a real estate agent is by getting rid of the clutter in your business and the lies in your head. Clutter will keep you from developing a clear business plan that is congruent to who you are as an agent, but lies will keep you from knowing who you are in the period. You need to renew your mind daily and identify where limiting beliefs are creeping in. You can’t address the fear of success if you believe the lies that built that fear in the first place. The easiest way to expose a lie is to flood it with the truth and you can’t do that without a daily commitment to renewing your mind.

Build healthy mental habits

As I’ve stated, renewing your mind is an essential part of building your breakthrough, but what does that look like? Personally, I’ve made it a habit to start my day off right so that I get my mind in order before anything else. As a believer, I read Scripture, pray, and spend time with God to make sure I’m casting all of my worries onto Him so I don’t own what I can’t control. I’ve even begun journaling in order to gain perspective and reflect on everything I have to be thankful for. It also motivates me to live more intentionally so I have something good to write about. Your mornings don’t have to look like mine. However, you should be pursuing some sort of gratitude time where you can really appreciate everything you have. It’s so easy to get caught up in the negativity of life and the comparison game. Start renewing your mind with gratitude and you will change the way you see the world.

Start pursuing excellence

Professional athletes are the best example of people who pursue excellence that I can think of. Take Steph Curry for example. This guy's reason for being such an incredible basketball player is that he never stops putting in the work to be great. He’s coming in three hours before practice and staying well past when others leave just to perfect his shot. Maybe you’re not a sports person, but I’m sure you can appreciate the pursuit of excellence. The same thing goes for your business. You have to make up your mind that you are going to pursue excellence no matter what. Even if it means long hours. Even if it means doing the things that no one else is willing to do. If you set your mind on pursuing excellence I promise you will unlock your potential and experience the breakthrough you’ve been looking for.

It’s been a while since I have talked about building your attraction pillar, so I thought a great way to revisit the topic would be to give you 18 Youtube titles you can use to ramp up your Youtube channel or get a new one started.

Youtube is a powerful discovery and distribution channel. It’s one way agents can put themselves on the map with people looking to move to their city or sell there existing home. People use Youtube to educate and entertain themselves and you can take advantage of that fact to build a platform that doesn’t stop working for you.

But it’s often hard to get started because you don’t have a good idea of the topics that would make for good Youtube videos. That’s what this episode is all about! Listen to learn!

City specific topics are powerful for Youtube titles for agents to use

Every real estate agent is working in a geographic location (DUH) and most are in cities. The people you serve in that location are very interested in what that city has to offer, especially if they are new to the city or are considering a move there. What a great opportunity for you to create helpful videos that give them the exact information they are looking for.

Consider creating a number of “top 10” or “top 5” type videos. Here are some starter ideas…

  • 10 reasons to move to YOUR CITY
  • 5 of the best places to eat in YOUR CITY
  • Things to do in YOUR CITY

Get the point? My recommendation is to record these videos outside, record some b-roll footage of the places you’re talking about in the videos, and make it engaging for your viewers. That’s just one of my ideas - listen to hear all of them!

Try these real estate related Youtube titles that are not dumb

It’s great to create content that’s about your location, but you also need to demonstrate your expertise as a real estate agent. But most real estate videos are boring and dumb. You don’t want to be that. Here are some great ideas for helpful content to get you started:

  • Why don’t I write my offer subject to sale?
  • Do I need to stage my home?
  • Why are most of the listings on Zillow sold by the time I call?
  • Can prices keep rising like this?
  • Why is inventory so low? OR How can I take advantage of low inventory?
  • How can I get my home to sell quickly?

Questions you receive are HUGE opportunities to produce relevant videos

If you sat down to do a brainstorming session for yourself and came up with every video title you can think of to put on your Youtube channel, I’m confident you’d find at least as many as I did. But then what? What do you do when you run out of ideas?

I’ve discovered that the questions you get from customers, clients, people in your community, and co-workers usually make for excellent video topics. That’s because you can be sure that if one person is asking you the question personally, many others are wondering about it as well. They just haven’t asked.

That’s a great opportunity for you to create content people are already searching for - and it positions you as the expert who can help them with other needs, like buying and selling their home.

Find the consistent creation cadence that fits you best

Establishing a Youtube channel is hard work, but it’s work that is well worth the effort. Many agents start elements of their attraction pillar (like a Youtube channel) without having their eyes wide open to what it’s going to require of them. That’s a recipe for failure.

You’ve got to examine your existing life and work rhythms in order to determine how and when you can insert video content creation into your schedule. If you don’t, your Youtube channel is  going to start in a blaze and end in a flicker. I suggest you start when you are the busiest, like in the Spring. That way you’ll see firsthand how hard it’s really going to be during your most busy time and can make the adjustments you need to make.

Listen to learn more about how to create a Youtube strategy and approach that will set you up for success, on this episode of Agent Rise.

Maintaining a confidence mindset is the key to “keeping the engine running” in your real estate business. If your sphere of influence and chase pillars are the transmission, then your mindset is the engine. Just like a car, if you don’t properly maintain your mindset you will stall out. Do you struggle to have confidence in yourself? Are you plagued by lies and limiting beliefs that are holding you back? Get the encouragement you need to break through on this week’s episode of the Agent Rise Podcast.

It’s time to build your confidence

One of the coolest things I get to experience as a real estate coach is watching new or stuck agents finally break through. And when everything does start to come together it’s not because they found some magical system that generates success. The number one catalyst for growth is creating and maintaining a confidence mindset. One of the big confidence boosters I have had to work at is knowing who I am. When you are firm in your identity you will have the ability to call out and cast out fears from your life. A mindset free from the power of fear is the best soil for confidence to grow.

Leave your baggage at the door

A huge obstacle in maintaining a confidence mindset is emotional baggage. Sometimes we can’t control the things that have happened to us or the words that have been spoken over us. Scars from past experiences will continually hold us back if we let them. Choosing to believe lies and limiting beliefs is just that: a choice. You don’t have to believe what that person said about you. You don’t have to let that failure or circumstance define you for the rest of your life. You CAN break through even the most painful of pasts if you learn to cultivate confidence with a healthy mindset.

Growth starts with YOU

How you view other people will determine the health of your mindset. If you see other people as the enemy of your growth then you will never get to where you want to be. Blaming others for your lack of results is a key characteristic of a scarcity mindset which breeds jealousy and creates an unhealthy need to constantly prove yourself. However, if you take full ownership of your future and embrace the fact that the only person holding you back from growth is YOU, there is no limit to what you’ll be able to achieve. Stop competing with other people and start challenging yourself.

Work according to your vision

Without vision people will perish. Your real estate business is no different. Don’t get distracted by every whim that comes your way and stick with the vision you set out to accomplish. That is incredible advice if you have a good vision that’s crystal clear. But what if you don’t? It’s going to be a trainwreck! The opposite of clarity is clutter and too many realtors have a vision for their business that could use some spring cleaning. Before you can pursue your vision you have to make sure the vision is not only clear but that it works and is congruent to you.

It’s time to get real about overcoming distractions as a real estate agent and I’m calling out the biggest one: social media. Most of us use it and love it, but is the time we spend on it worth the return? Is Facebook marketing driving your business or keeping you distracted? Is your addiction to Instagram stories keeping you from writing your own success story? I’m helping you answer all of these questions and more on this week’s episode of the Agent Rise Podcast!

Count the cost of your social media investment

Last week, I made the statement that by saying “Yes” to one thing we are saying “No” to another. I’m realizing that too many real estate agents are saying “Yes” to crazy amounts of time pursuing social media marketing while saying “No’ to things like matchmaking and building an effective chase. I’m going to make a bold statement and say that for a new or stuck agent social media is probably a waste of time. I get that SOME of your drive you business with social and that’s amazing, but I’d also bet that’s because you’ve spent a good amount of time and resources making that work for you. Hear me new/stuck agents: You don’t have time to play the long game. You need to walk (or maybe crawl) long before you can start running. Invest in things that will grow your business NOW.

Don’t play the comparison game

Theodore Roosevelt once said that “Comparison is the thief of joy.” Maybe social media is less of a distraction for your business and more of one for your life. If you constantly consume social content you are subjecting your mind to whatever random thing shows up on your feed next. It might be positive or it could be an angry rant that feeds you anger. Perhaps it’s a picture of another agent taking their family on vacation that sends you into a shame spiral and makes you believe you’ll never be able to do something like that for your family. Don’t let Facebook steal your joy! Keep your clarity about who you are and where you're going by limiting exposure to the filterless influence of social media.

Work in the dirt without getting dirty

The reality is that social media can be an incredible tool when used properly. Real estate agents with a solid and lucrative foundation CAN drive their business further by using Facebook and Instagram. How do they do it? They know how to control social media without letting it control them. They don’t let one hour of post scheduling become that plus two more hours of scrolling. Don’t use the legitimate social media needs of your business as an excuse to stay distracted. Be intentional with your business plan! If it includes social media marketing then let that be your purpose for logging into social media. PERIOD. Part of creating a plan that’s congruent to you is acknowledging your weaknesses. If you can’t be on social media without getting lost on your news feed then contract social media marketing out to someone else so you can stay focused. Don’t let Instagram stories fill your days. Write your own.

Get serious about overcoming distractions

If I know anything from my own battles with distraction and addiction, it’s that half-measures just won’t do. You have to get serious about weeding out the things that are draining your productivity and sucking away your success. If that means deleting social media apps from your phone then DO IT. If you have to hire a coach to hold you accountable, go ahead. No matter what you’re dealing with in the realm of addiction and distraction it’s always ok to ask for help. The key to overcoming distractions is to be aware of how much time you are investing in something, evaluating the benefit of that investment, and then making the necessary adjustments to get rid of what is wasting your time. Start saying “No” to the things that are not driving your business so you can start saying “Yes” to success.
