Every month I read at least two books to help me grow personally and as a real estate business owner. One of the books I read during the month of February was, “The One Thing” by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan and it did not disappoint. This book provided a lot of great exercises that helped me focus on my ONE THING in the most important areas of my life (spiritual, health, personal, key relationships, business, and financial). When something happens to us, we either take accountability or become a victim. Being a realtor and real estate investor is not easy and to be successful, you must be committed and consistent. As I continue to look for ways to better serve my clients, I completed two exercises that helped refresh my mindset. The first exercise was focused on identifying my business purpose in the 3Ps (Purpose, Priority, Productivity) and the second exercise helped me identify where I was being accountable and where I had a victim mindset (Life Happens – Don’t be a victim framework below). 

Exercise #1 – Real Estate Business Purpose:

  • To help others achieve their goal(s) through real estate

Exercise #2 – Life Happens – Don’t be a victim framework:

  • Accountable Mindset
    • Seeks Reality – “What’s happening?”
    • Acknowledge Reality. – “This is the way it is.”
    • Owns It – “If it’s to be, it’s up to me!”
    • Finds Solution – “What I can do?”
    • Gets on With It – “O.K., let’s do it!”
  • Victim Mindset
    • Avoids Reality – “Asks no questions.”
    • Fights Reality – “That’s not how I see it.”
    • Blames – “If everyone would just do their job!”
    • Personal Excuses – “It’s not my job.”
    • Waits & Hopes – “If it was meant to be, it’ll happen.”
