Up or Down in 2021?

May you live in interesting times” is purported to be ‘the Chinese curse’, although its origins in China are doubtful. Chinese or not, the year 2020 has seen ‘interesting times’ thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite this, many agencies have had a good year.

As 2021 approaches, what are your predictions for next year – up or down?

Did you think I was talking about the market? No! I’m talking about YOU!

Will your results be up or down in 2021?

I don’t make light of the hardship COVID-19 brought to many businesses and families, but so far real estate businesses in most places have fared reasonably well. Look around – plenty of people did well despite the pandemic.

Others, who were probably struggling pre-pandemic, continued to struggle, but the pandemic provided them with a convenient excuse.

How has the pandemic affected you? Are you heading into 2021 believing that it will be a great year for you, or are you concerned about tough economic times, thinking it will be a tough year?

The forecasters may be right in saying that the economic fallout from the pandemic will be severe, but does that mean a bad year for you?

Forecasters don’t always get it right and even if they are right on this occasion, does this mean that people won’t need to sell their properties? Does this mean that people won’t buy?

The business of real estate will continue. Future prices may be a lot lower than today’s prices, but in ANY market, properties priced at or near the market price of the day, will sell.

You become what you think about” said Earl Nightingale. Think failure and you’ll fail. Think success and you will seek ways to succeed.

So, what does 2021 hold for you? Success or struggle? It’s largely up to you. How you think determines your actions, and your actions determine your results.

I want you to enter 2021 expecting to succeed. And I want you to define that success and plan how you will achieve it.

Now more than ever, I urge you to plan 2021. Plan to make it a hugely successful year.

How 2021 treats you is up to you. You can choose to be a Market Victim, or a Market Opportunist.

Enter 2021 believing that there is opportunity for you to have your best year ever, set goals, plan, write affirmations, train and practise and success will be yours.

Up or down in 2021? Your choice.
