5 Successful Morning Routines for Real Estate Pros

October 02 2022

zurple morning routinesThis post was inspired by an "unstoppable agent" rule shared by Tom Ferry: be unstoppable with your morning routine.

Do you have a morning routine, or do you get up and immediately dive into your email and voicemail? Mornings set the tone for your entire day, and your willpower is at the highest right after you wake up – so make it count! This post will help you establish a morning routine that allows you to center yourself and focus on the tasks that matter the most to your real estate business. The goal is to start your day feeling optimistic and determined – and we're going to help you do just that.

Follow our five tips to take control of your mornings:

1. Prepare the night before

If you only do one thing, spend a few minutes each night organizing your to-do list for the next day. Develop a short list of the most important items you need to accomplish. Make it a habit to write this list before going to bed. It only takes 10 minutes each night, but can save you hours the next day.

2. Manage your energy, not your time

Being in tune with your biological ups and downs can help you make great strides with your business (and personal) growth. If you take a moment to think about it, you'll begin to realize that you are better at doing certain tasks at certain times of the day. For example, if you recognize that you're best at analyzing business numbers and developing strategies first thing in the morning, capitalize on that.

3. Set your intention for the day: "I am in control"

Make a conscious decision that you are in control of your day and use positive affirmations to reinforce it (I'm in control of my day. I plan to make it my best day). It may feel unnatural at first – so fake it when you're just getting started with affirmations. Before long, they will become second nature.

4. Be grateful and positive the moment you wake up

Gratitude goes hand in hand with success. Appreciate things you have in your life and plan for better things to come. Create a gratitude journal and write down three things you're grateful for while having your morning coffee or tea. Make an effort to notice good things – not bad ones – and get the law of attraction to work in your favor.

5. Focus on what's important

Decide on two to three things that make today a success for you and focus on those things. You want to experience the accumulation effect – incremental implementation of small steps.

Bonus tip: Decide to be pleasant, charming and confident today

When you say your morning affirmation, include some language on how you will act today. Tell yourself that you're going to be confident, approachable and friendly today. Tell yourself you're going to smile and make pleasant conversations with others. Doing so can help you break through an off morning and start your day on the right foot.

It's no coincidence that what you do each morning is an indicator how your entire day will turn out. It's the choices that we repeatedly make that determine the life we live, the health we enjoy and the work we create.
