Getting in the Right State of Mind

Become a more effective person by focusing on what you can control.

The media says that house prices are falling and a recession is approaching. These crazy headlines create a lot of uncertainty and fear of a repeat of 2007. In this time of uncertainty, your mindset matters more than ever. Today we’ll share tips on improving your mindset in these uncertain times. 

At the start of the pandemic, we made a video about Stephen Covey's book, “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” The book is about the circle of influence and what you can and can’t control. Unfortunately, we tend to focus on things that we can't control. We can't control the weather, interest rates, or where house prices are going, yet those are the things that we're worried about.

"We tend to focus on things that we can't control."

We should focus on the things that we can control. We can control what we do with our interest rate. Our customers are buying down their rates or getting the sellers to buy down their rates. Don't let fear overwhelm you; take control and make changes happen. When we focus on those things, we become more proactive, and it improves our state of mind. 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us by phone or email. We look forward to hearing from you.
