How to stop blocking your success

How to succeed in real estate

A motivation coach explains how removing all other scenarios will help you smash down the barriers to your success.

“We give ourselves excuses all the time,” said Susanne King at AREC 2016, adding that not having a strong enough ‘why’ behind the decisions you make will affect the outcomes and increase the likelihood of failure.

“The more you practice your decision-making muscle, the stronger it will get, and when you have that kind of focus where you say ‘This is how it’s going to be’, you will follow through and do the action, you will do what’s necessary,” she said.

Ms King said making decisions for your future, and then setting your day up to provide an easy pathway for those decisions to come to fruition, is the key to success.

She said agents who remove the easier, less effective paths are more likely to succeed than those who leave themselves with an escape plan.

“Most people aren’t prepared to go to that level, they usually leave a bit of a life raft for themselves, something that’s there in case it doesn’t work,” she said.

Ms King said making the decision to succeed is often the difference between successful people and those who don't make it. By making a conscious choice to not allow failure into your life, you put yourself in the right mindset to make better business decisions.

“It’s important to remember that while you’re making the excuses and putting up walls between yourself and your future, there is someone out there who is just going ahead and doing it. It’s this difference that people often miss,” said Ms King.

On why people get stuck in their career paths, Ms King said “when we boil down to it, it really comes down to them”.
