Powerfact: Everyone of us can use a little bit of inspiration from time to time.
by Real Estate Coach Darryl Davis
I’ve done a lot of research in my life, especially when I was writing my book, Designing a Life Worth Smiling About. Each week, on our real estate coaching calls, I make it a point to add a little piece of advice. A pick-me-up. A catalyst for thought leadership. A reason to smile.
Sometimes we call them a #SmileDOSE – because when you SMILE it releases the feel good chemicals in your brain…
D: Dopamine = Dreams. When you are in the pursuit of BIG DREAMS or goals – that’s when you are producing your highest level of dopamine. In fact, studies show that when you achieve a goal, your levels return to normal. So it is the anticipation of the dream, not the realization that creates the energy.
O: Oxytocin = Others. Oxytocin is called the Love chemical. It is in our DNA (our third chromosome) to be connected to other people. When we feel that sense of belonging, trust, connectivity, and happiness, we produce more of this joy-inducing chemical.
S: Serotonin = Success. When you get to the point of skill mastery in your business, your serotonin increases, and leaves you with a sense of well being. You’ll feel more confident, competent, and calm as you continue to master your skills.
E: Endorphins = Enthusiasm. When you’re passionate about what you are doing your endorphins go up. This chemical relates to pain reduction – even in sales. When you increase your endorphins levels, you can push through stress or pain of calling FSBOs and expireds for example. The key is to act as if what you want already is, it’s a sure thing. It just hasn’t happened yet.
Over half of my team has spent more than 30 years in this industry, together, we’ve got over 150 years combined experience in real estate, training, marketing, and sales. What that should tell you is that we get you. We understand that this business can be a rollercoaster at times. Days when you’re way on top waving your arms and feeling the thrill. And days when you feel like you’re careening around an edge and unsure of what comes next. No matter what – we’ve got you. We’re here for you. The Power Agent® Community of team members and agent members will NEVER let you down.
We put together some motivational quotes for you to hopefully inspire, motivate, lift your spirit, or make you smile. Caring for your mindset is just as important an ingredient of success as the skills that you develop!
