Monthly Motivation: Are people buying what you’re selling?

Seth Godin Quote on what people buy

Do you build relationships, tell stories and inspire magic in your real estate business? Are you selling a property or a lifestyle? Does your marketing reflect this? 

Are these types of things only for marketing, or do you bring them into the way you conduct business too? 

Share your ideas, tips and tricks below.

Success Comes From your Mindset

There are 168 hours in a week - what you choose to do with them is up to you - Joe Momoh (UofA Success Story)

A made up mind is the powerful difference between average and extraordinary success. The University of Alberta published a story that emphasizes what a shift in mindset can do in life:

From starting University with a football scholarship to graduating with a 3.9 GPA and starting his own business, this student learned a lot about life, hard work and defying stereotypes. We believe these are valuable lessons for everyone at any stage of their career.

Read the story here and get inspired.

Your success in real estate is what you make up your mind to achieve. We’d love to hear how you keep yourself motivated and how you ensure you reach your goals. If you’re not realizing the success you know you’re capable of, give us a call. We can help with your marketing and put some time back in your hands so you can focus on what you’ve made up your mind to achieve.

Canadians Helping Canadians

Sometimes, all we need to motivate us is a little help from a friend (or stranger). We have a great country with millions of people ready to step up and give a hand to those in need. Let’s take a look at a few moments this past year with fellow Canadians helping Canadians and rallying to help each other and create a better place for those around them:

May 2016 – Relief poured in from all over the country when a devastating forest fire in Fort McMurray left over 80,000 people evacuated from their city. Strangers opened up their homes to give people they had never met a place to live. Food, clothing and household items were donated to help people restart their lives. Restaurants offered free meals to people displaced by the fire and hotels offered lodging. Not to mention the millions of dollars donated through the Red Cross. Through this difficult situation, strangers stopped to lift each other up.

November 2016 – In a story reported by CBC, strangers on the subway in Toronto all banded together to help a young man who was running late for a job interview and was extremely nervous. Instead of ignoring his obviously flustered state, the people sitting around him took the time to help him relax and take a positive, confident mindset to his interview. It was so inspiring to one of the strangers that helped him, she shared her story. It’s a great read! Get it here.

April 30, 2017 – Fun is motivating too! Game 3, Edmonton Oilers hosting the Anaheim Ducks, voices rang out in Rogers Place as the crowd took to singing the Star Spangled Banner when a microphone glitch threatened to destroy game tradition. Brett Kissel, the anthem singer, tweeted: “Mic didn’t work for the anthems tonight @RogersPlace. But no worries. The best singers & fans are in #OilCountry! @EdmontonOilers!”

We love hearing how people go above and beyond to help others! We know REALTORS ® are a big part of the community and contribute in many ways to organizations that better lives. Share your stories in the comments about how you, your colleagues and your company support the community.
