Whether you just fell in to the business, or actively pursued a job in the industry, at some point you made a decision to work in property management! Good for you. It can be a rewarding, interesting, well-paying and dynamic career. If you’re feeling a little burned-out, let’s remind ourselves why we do what we do…
- Remember why you got into the business. It’s a calling actually…you like helping people, solving problems, and it’s never dull!
- Your contribution positively impacts the property’s value and owner enjoyment.
- Your job is recession resistant. Many states mandate licensed managers whether the market is up or down.
- You don’t have to work in a cubicle!
- You get to learn something new every day. There are always new and interesting challenges that stretch your skills and experience that will help you craft new solutions to unforeseen problems.
- Your skills will transfer to any state in the county. Your opportunities are endless!
- You are a professional, and should consider the work you perform important.
- There are support systems to help you overcome your current slump; find a peer accountability partner or a mentor to help you if you’re feeling overwhelmed and discouraged.
- Find a personal passion outside of the office, or rekindle an old one. This suggestion is really important for your well-being, and necessary to work toward a balanced life.
- Count your blessings and focus on the positive. You have a bright future with many opportunities ahead of you. Negative thinking is self-fulfilling and unproductive. Your thoughts create your reality. Buck up buttercup!
We all have the power to determine our happiness to a large degree. You will experience failures, disappointments and obstacles. This is all a part of life, growth, and creating new opportunities for future success(s). You are amazing! Go get ‘em.
