Successful and unsuccessful people do not always vary in their abilities, but they almost always vary in their perseverance and determination to reach their goals.

Joshua Harley, CEO – Fathom Holdings, Inc.

In a recent Facebook post, Joshua Harley asked his network for what they were doing to persevere to reach their goals. Here are some of the responses:

“By being part of the solution, not the problem. Working diligently with cooperative agents and being as helpful as possible so we can all reach the common goal which is a successful closing. Never giving up, the word I can’t does not exist in my vocabulary.” – Deana Soberl

“Work hard and work smart. Set your goals for short term, mid term and long term. Success is usually found in a slow cooker not in a microwave. Treat others, including other agents the way you would want to be treated! Set your clients Interests above your own and never ever give up!” – Keith Campbell

“Today, my perseverance comes from my son. I don’t want to let him down. I want to show him that if you work your butt off and have determination you can succeed in whatever you choose to do. So anytime adversity meets my path, I think about my son and push through. Because for me it’s all about him. Providing for him and showing him a path.” Jeff Robertson

“Being and staying in a place of giving as the goal. Success and reaching goals are easy then as long as I am giving.” – Terri Taylor

“Surrounding myself with the right people.” – Daniel C. Stein

“It’s all about your “why”. Just as in life, we have days that don’t go as well as others but perseverance is key. Always keep in mind that even the most successful people have an off day and that “this too shall pass” as my mother always told me. We are all worthy and I try to make everyone including myself feel that way.” – Leigh Bennett

“Forgive yourself when you make a mistake. Forgive others as it equals freedom. Real estate is stressful. There are times you must tell yourself-Don’t get in the weeds. Look above the situation and trust God.” – Tracee Thomas McRight

“I break down my goals into “bite sized” pieces and put my heart and soul into each piece. It allows me to celebrate the small “wins” and keeps me motivated to keep striving to be a better agent and person, and keeps me moving towards success…” – Ron Turner

“When it comes to persevering through tough times, I remind myself of this quote that I wrote down in my daily planner. “Keep running” ????‍♂️ I believe Wayne Dyer says, ‘It’s never crowded along the extra mile.’“ – Vikas Manda

“I’ve been thinking about the verse that says ‘the joy of the Lord is your strength’ a lot lately. I also think about how even though it seems long in the middle of whatever you’re going through, it’s not forever. It’s just a season. So, keep going.” – Geoffrey Stertz

“I have learned that my success (in addition to the awesome grace of God), is determined by my own tenacity so I get up and show up and do the best I can with whatever lies before me… day after day after day….” – Sheri Geyer

“Find out what others have done that brought them success and do it. Don’t pick one thing and stop if it doesn’t work for you-do it ALL. Eventually you figure out what pieces of their success work with who you are and who you want to be. Try something new in your business every 90 days. If it doesn’t work then you learned something and move on to the next challenge. No matter what, do not quit.” – Brandi Clarkson
