When you’re in a profession like real estate there is a lot of competition. The odds are totally against you, not that many people end up making it to the top. If you want to make it into the top 1% of your market you have to work your ass off and become obsessed with your craft. You have to decide to do things that everybody else is not willing to do. That’s what success comes down to.

Most of the people that do make it into the top 1% of their profession are willing to put in the extra work. They wake up at three in the morning. They work 18 hours a day. They become obsessed with their craft. They work to improve daily. They network, they attend events, they learn, they study and they’re constantly driving and pushing themselves. That is why the overarching amount of people that succeed and are at the top of their game are there for a reason.

Yes, you need talent and talent will take you very far, but even if you’re incredibly gifted like LeBron James you are still going to have to work your ass off to make it. You have to put in that extra time and effort. So just keep working hard and don’t worry about anything else.

Don’t worry about the money. Don’t worry about what your competition is doing. Just focus about mastering your craft and doing the daily disciplines, the 3am wake-up calls and the long days. That is what’s going to make you, that is what’s going to get you where you need to be. Just always remember that success takes doing the things that everybody else doesn’t want to do.Everybody else is going to go out to the bar Thursday and Friday night. Everybody else is going to take the weekends off. That’s what everybody else is going to do. If you want to be like everybody else, do that, but if you want to be great and you want to be the best, put in those extra hours.
