To avoid the high cost of Mindlessness in your real estate practice here is the place to start: 1) Deliberately set up the conditions of your “game” so that the odds are in favor of your winning, and; 2) Consistently reach for a state of relaxed concentration in your daily activities and stay focused. That state is also known as Mindfulness.
Stack The Odds In Your Favor
Our primary job as strategic branding consultants in the luxury real estate arena is helping our clients stack the odds in their favor to consistently win at their game. We use the word game here on purpose because we believe that you should have fun doing what you love most.
We help our clients to identify under served or uncontested niches that they can dominate and do so with passion. Selecting a particular niche that has the potential to realize their financial goals also stacks the odds in their favor.
The exciting thing about stacking the odds in your favor is that it allows you to concentrate all of your attention and energy on a singular goal and not feel like you are being torn in many directions. This is how you set the stage for mindfulness.
Consistently Reach For A State of Relaxed Concentration
Once you are CERTAIN that your game conditions are stacked in your favor the key is to TRUST YOURSELF and not to second-guess yourself, which is one of the primary sources of mindlessness. Then, all you need is the right message to reach your target market, a message that communicates your unique promise of value.
Imagine that you are an archer. You place an arrow in your bow, aim at your target and you pull back the string. Suddenly, you wonder if you forgot to lock your car door. Your attention then drifts off to a conversation that you had with a client that did not go well. You think of all of the things you need to do before your return home. What are your chances now of achieving a bulls eye with this degree of mindlessness?
It is the same with any sport. You need a quiet mind; you need relaxed concentration to win. The same applies to your real estate practice.
In Part 3 of this article series we will cover some techniques that you can practice to quiet your mind and achieve this state of relaxed concentration more frequently. That way you can avoid the high cost of mindlessness-the waste of time, the waste of money, the waste of life-your life!
