Well, this post isn't necessarily about dating... It's more about prospecting for business as a real estate agent. But it is very similar...
If I went into a bar, and stood against the wall... How long would it take for someone to come up to me and ask me on a date? I did nothing, but stand against the way. I would venture pretty close to never. So what if I dressed really nice, smiled as people walked by, smelled good and gave off good vibes... How long do you think it will take for someone to ask me on a date now? Still, the odds are that it may take a long time... Truth is, you don't really know how long it will take.
So imagine if I went to the same bar, and asked every girl there to go on a date with me, how long would it take for someone to eventually say yes... I am not sure how many people it would take or how long it would take. But the odds are that if I ask everyone, someone will eventually say yes. I can increase my odds with the script I am using, or the skills I have in listening and creating conversation.
So the point of my post is for you to recognize your style of lead generation. Is it passive like standing on the wall... or is it active, like asking everyone on a date.
If you are not achieving the level of business that you would like to have now, look at how you are going about getting business. Are you waiting for the business to find you, or are you out there talking to as many people on a daily basis until someone says "yes". You have have success either way, just evaluate where your trying to go, and what path you want to take to get there!
