Just when you think things are down!

They seem up again so fast.
Yesterday, I was at my weekly sales meeting and on my hour drive I thought to myself, another Monday meeting. What more can we hear about the depressing housing market. You guessed it, I sell homes for the nations largest builder.

Our management brought in a motivational speaker and he did his job. I consider myself successful but have been having a slow year compared to other years. Must be the market!
He started with - Ask yourself if you have done any of the following?

  • Set Goals

  • Long term Plans

  • Daily Plans

  • Spiritual life

It clicked, I have not done any of these things above lately. I always right down my goals, I looked back and thought why didn't I do this? Maybe because I thought that I did it last year and succeeded so I didn't need to do them again. WRONG. So today I have been pondering my goals and plans and how in the world am I going to sell 30 homes this year and I am almost in the second quarter. I look back and there have been so many changes in my life this year that I haven't made time to do things for me and to make my business successful.

My daily goal today is to start and finish writing my goals and how I am going to get there. I was at lunch and the phone was ringing off the hook. Sorry Kimberley :( I scheduled two appointments and now on my day off I will be at the office at 6:00 tonight to write a contract. I will take it. If need be I will write my goals and plans tomorrow but it will get done!

I am going to get back on my game again and sell, sell, sell and sell some more.

To finish this entry, I woke up this morning praying to the lord that he would guide me in my everyday life. To give me strength to persevere this down market, to love my children, my husband, and my family. I got all my tasks done on the list today except one. I think that he sent the rain to slow me down and it worked. I was able to take an hour to do something for me. Now off running again the kids just got home and homework it is.

I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't ask you all if you need to buy a house?

I needed this reminder to slow down and set my priorities straight. Life goes whizzing by and then I'm all confused at why things are running the way they should. Time to take a big breath and rethink. It's snowy here today, so the Lord sent your rain this way to make me slow down too.

And I just know you can sell 30 houses. You can do it!! I'll pray for some buyers to come your way.
