Why I sold my house and everything in it
To run a successful mortgage business, you have to learn how to think.
Sounds pretty simple, right?
It turns out that thinking correctly is harder than it seems.
Your thoughts are easily corrupted by your past experiences and fears of the future.
By the time your thoughts have passed through your mind, they have been turned into something that may not be 100% accurate.
This process of thought corruption is what makes it difficult for you to turn your business into what you know it can be.
This is why I sold my house with everything in it.
I wanted a fresh start and an opportunity to reset my mind.
Is this the only way you can clear your mind and learn to think?
There are many ways to create a new container to operate in.
The important thing is that you do it! And, continue to make sure your thoughts aren’t what is causing you all of your problems.
Your brain is like a computer. Each day you are storing more data in your brain as you experience the world. Because you are using your perception, this doesn’t mean that the data you store is true. This is exactly how your thoughts start to become corrupted.
Imagine, you send a potential referral partner an email introducing yourself. Three days go by and you still haven’t gotten a response. You decide to send another email following up… still no reply. You conclude that the referral partner thinks you are annoying and wants nothing to do with you. Or, you conclude that they are using another loan officer and have no interest in using you.
However, the reality may be very different…
What if they were experiencing a family emergency and simply didn’t have time to reply? What if your emails were ending up in their spam folder? Or, maybe they saw your email and had every intention of getting to know you better… but got interrupted before they were able to reply?
Your mind thinks… and it wants to make sense of reality. The problem is that your mind cannot always be trusted. Your past experience may be corrupting your perception of reality and therefore affecting your ability to create the future you desire.
Learning how to think is the key to creating the life you want. You cannot control your thoughts, but you can learn how to control your reaction to them and which ones you decide to believe.
