Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is regarded as one of the best professional development books anyone can purchase. In today’s episode of The Real Estate Sales Podcast, Jimmy discusses the concepts most applicable to real estate agents to give you a foundation for success and growth, focusing on the importance of mental preparation.
1. Own your desire
- The stronger your desire, the harder you’ll work to achieve a goal.
- If you search for extreme growth, you’ll be more likely to find it.
2. Do you believe it is possible?
- Have you found someone who has done what you want to do, and can you model that path?
- Once you know a goal is possible, you’ll feel better able to achieve it.
3. Organized plan of action
- A loose plan is never as effective as a well-organized plan of action.
- Determine what steps are needed to ensure daily activities get you to your goals and accomplish them.
4. Have faith
- Do you have faith that following those daily activities will get you where you need to go?
- Having faith that you’ll get your desired results will happen in just a matter of time.
- Do you have the understanding, faith, and organized plan to get something done?
- If you encounter obstacles or discomfort in your work, break through it to find new levels of success.
6. The power of the mastermind
- Surround yourself with people looking to grow, and model yourself after them.
- Jimmy has different groups he meets monthly, weekly, and yearly to renew his spirit and keep his desire to move towards his goal.
7. Power of your unconscious mind
- Our unconscious directs us and filters messaging we hear and see.
- It learns what to filter based on what we think about. So, if you worry about something, you’ll focus on more things to worry about.
- Focus on the positive elements that move your business forward, and you can expect more positive factors to come to mind.
