Active Patience – 4 Places Every Real Estate Agent Needs It

Mindset

What the heck is active patience and why does every real estate agent need it?

Here’s the story of how I came up with this concept and how it helped me in my real estate business:

When I decided to become a real estate agent I thought things would happen quickly–I would get a client quickly, the next client would always come quickly, clients would make decisions quickly, commission checks would get to me quickly, and I would be successful quickly.

But when I actually became a real estate agent, it felt like everything was happening in slow motion.

None of those things came quickly.

It was frustrating, it felt hard and I kept thinking something was wrong with me.

But, nothing was wrong with me. And if you feel like things are happening slower than you thought they would, nothing is wrong with you either.

What I know now that I didn’t know then is that I needed to be patient.

But, not just passively waiting around for things to happen kind of patience. That type of patience leads to inaction and doesn’t work.

We need to be actively patient.

This type of patience requires a lot of work on our part.

. . . It requires we be the guiding professional that helps our clients without rushing them.

. . . It requires we be the steady person that doesn’t panic when the market changes.

. . . It requires we be the knowledgeable person showing up with the data to show our clients how to make smart, informed decisions.

…It’s about doing things without seeing immediate results long enough to get the results you want.

…It’s about trying things and them not working the first time, picking ourselves back up, making adjustments, and continuing to march forward.

…It’s about having a belief in ourselves that’s so strong and so certain that we aren’t frantic, overwhelmed, or rushing to get anywhere other than here.

When it comes to being a real estate agent, patience–active patience–truly is a virtue.

And there’s another piece to this–not only do we need to be actively patient, but we need to be actively patient in four very specific areas:

  • Patient with ourselves;
  • Patient with building our career;
  • Patient with the market; and
  • Patient with our clients.

In today’s episode of Confessions of A Top Producing Real Estate Agent, The Agent Grad School Podcast, one of our students and I are diving deep into this concept of being actively patient in each of these four areas of being a real estate agent.

If things are happening slower in your real estate business than you imagined, I hope this episode helps you.
