“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James II: 2-3.
If you are in the real estate business for a period of time, you will at some point deal with obstacles. Some may be trivial, while others more complex and wearing. But we must know that in the grand scheme of things, all obstacles are small. It is easy when dealing with an obstacle in our businesses to be side tracked from our tasks and sometimes even consumed.
So how does one overcome when faced with a difficult time? Perseverance!
“Just keep on keeping on” is an old adage that comes to mind. When faced with an obstacle, don’t give up, just keep on going. Do what you know is right and don’t allow the issue you are facing to consume your thoughts and time. Persevere.
Stay to the tasks including lead generation instead of dwelling on a particular client or transaction that may have wronged you. Persevere.
Take time to re-read your goals, objectives to reach those goals, and your mission when you are distracted from your purpose. Persevere.
You and I will face obstacles in our businesses, or you may also call them storms in your life, but the great thing about a storm is that it will pass. Persevere!
