I am getting packed and ready for Mega Camp in Austin, Texas. I’m being picked up at 5:00 am so I really should be getting some sleep…

I’m still finishing some laundry, some reading/writing, and making sure I grab everything that I need for the week down there.

Besides the schedule events I personally have a busy week with some extras. I will be speaking to all the Team Leader’s and OP’s in the company about our KW Lions Den and Power Hour on a panel during Mega Leadership. Also attending an event with Holly Perry, Dave Jenks and Jay Papasan about the Millionaire Real Estate Agent book and the SHIFT book.

I hope to be posting some highlights of Mega Camp here and at Mastering the Shift. Stay tuned this week.

“You got a dream…you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you, you can’t do it.”

This market is tough. This economy is tough. As a real estate agent you are dealing with sellers that can’t afford their monthly payments, have lost their equity, or being foreclosed on. Its hard to stay positive and upbeat.

I know how tough it is to be a real estate agent today also. I am hearing stories of real estate agents cars being repossesed, homes being foreclosed on, losing their business….the list goes on and on.

There are going to be sad stories all around. Guess what? There are going to be great, positive stories also. Be selective about your environment. Be selective with your hearing. Be selective about the people you associate with.

You have a choice…what will it be?

Why Am I Obsessing Over Bruce Lee On A Real Estate Blog? August 13, 2008

Why not?

Why do I have to look to Mike Ferry, Brian Buffini, Howard Brinton or Floyd Wickman for real estate ideas? Bruce Lee seems as good as anybody to model for success!

Bruce Lee created his own style of martial arts called Jeet Kune Do.  Lee said,

“Let it be understood once and for all that I have NOT invented a new style, composite or modification. I have in no way set Jeet Kune Do within a distinct form governed by laws that distinguish it from ‘this’ style or ‘that’ method. On the contrary, I hope to free my comrades from bondage to styles, patterns and doctrines.”

He took a lot of theories and principles and made them applicable to the martial arts. He mixed them together and showed people that they had no need of style—only to take what works and find their own path with it.

I don’t believe there is ONE way to succeed in real estate sales. I do believe we should take Bruce Lee’s advice and take what works from internet marketing, print advertising, branding, phone prospecting, event networking, direct mail and make it our own. Take the best practices and make your real estate sales practice the best.

“One does not accumulate but eliminate. It is not daily increase but daily decrease. The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity” -Bruce Lee

Look at your business. Look at your life. What can you eliminate? What do you not need? What do you not need to do? What do you not need to have?

We spend our days being so busy, running around doing many tasks, consuming time, consuming and collecting products. This leads to burnout and overwhelm.

Gary Keller writes in the Millionaire Real Estate Agent book,

The truth is that all plans must be reduced to simplicity in order for us to be able to implement them,. No one can live or operate in complexity for very long-lasting success always lies in our ability to reduce things to their simpliest level. (page 26)
