Ep. 204: Change is Inevitable, but THIS is Optional!

You may have heard this quote from John Maxwell:

“Change is inevitable, but growth is optional.”

This is such a great quote, and so applicable as we’re all changing and adapting in response to this global pandemic!

Growth is absolutely critical through this process!

How are you growing? What steps are you taking to make sure that you don’t just change, but that you grow through this?

Take advantage of this situation to stretch yourself, and challenge yourself! Learn new skills, master new technologies! Use this time to embrace growth!

Today on Selling the Dream, change is inevitable. Growth is optional. Welcome to Selling the Dream, a podcast created for and by second home and resort realtors on Tom Tezak. And each week my goal is to bring you a quick real estate tip along with an infopath interview with an industry rock shop. My mission is to bring the cutting edge market insight into sales techniques and information about the latest technology. Thanks for tuning in. And remember, we're not selling real estate, Selling the Dream.

Everybody, Tom Tezak with Selling the Dream and today's Tuesday Tip inspired by a famous speaker john Maxwell and his quote is, change is inevitable. Growth is optional. And I think it's such a great quote to use today and coming out and coming through COVID-19 and seeing people during the course of their careers and their lives and their business.

and their families face

changing because we have to we don't have a choice to change right now. It's inevitable, as john Maxwell said long ago, before COVID-19 hit. But growth is so critically important through all of this. It is up to you to take this change, figure out how you can do better things. Take advantage of the situation and the opportunity, the scenario and maximize that to make yourself a better person to make yourself a better realtor, to make yourself even more importantly, a better father, husband, wife, whatever that is through the course of these changes, and embrace it, because we can't change it. But we can work on our growth and learn how to make the best out of a situation if you're challenged with showing real estate because your clients aren't in here, then figure out how to show real estate digitally figure out how to get online and do it. We have

All the technology that we need to show properties to do what we need to do as realtors to list properties, take advantage of it. And if you think oh my gosh, it's hard or I'm afraid, you just need to embrace it. Spend some time, do some research, follow some podcasts, follow some tech seminars, and learn how to do this. You've all been working on it, I know. But you just need to realize it's not going to go away. Things are not going to change overnight. It's going to be a long journey. And we need to be prepared to be on that journey. To do the best job we can. Your clients are out there, they want to buy real estate, they want to sell real estate, be the resource that says, I'm here for you in this crazy time. And I'm embracing all new technologies to help you be successful. So, for Selling the Dream, remember we don't just sell real estate we are selling the dream and embrace change and don't be afraid to grow.
