On this episode, host Dustin Brohm debunks the myth that you have to wake up at 4am, go to the gym, and work 18 hours a day on January 1st to be successful as a Realtor in the coming year. He shares his own experience of taking a break to recharge and refocus, and argues that success is a marathon, not a sprint. This is a mindset episode for real estate agents looking to make 2023 their best year yet, even if they don't start on January 1st.

Key Points:

  • Success is a marathon, not a sprint
  • It's okay to take breaks and recharge
  • Mindset is more important than specific actions
  • Don't let guru “dickheads” dictate your worth or success
  • Your competitors may not be as “tough” as they seem
  • You can still have a great year even if you don't start on January 1st
  • It's important to have a long-term perspective and focus on progress, not perfection
  • Setting big goals and taking consistent action are important, but so is self-care and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

Listen and take notes as Dustin walks us through what he does to stay in a growth-oriented frame of mind. What is the first thing you do in the morning? Do you take a shower? Do you check Instagram? Do you make your bed? Whatever it is, it can wait for a day or two while you gather your thoughts. I promise you will still be on the trajectory intended.
