Hello and happy Monday! This is Susan Hyatt and it’s GO time.
This is a show where we talk about goals, and courage, and going after what you really want in life.
This is episode number 143.
And this is a SPECIAL episode.
This episode is part of a special 7-part series that I’m calling…
We’re going to discuss a mindset—an attitude—that might be derailing your day.
I will share some guidance on how to shift your attitude back into a positive, powerful place. In other words, I’m teaching you how to give yourself… an attitude adjustment!
It’s like a chiropractic adjustment… for your mood. 🙂
Here’s the attitude we’re discussing today:
“IT’S SOOO HARD TO FIND CUSTOMERS AND MAKE MONEY.”

Wanna read the full transcript? Here ya go:
Many moons ago, back when I became a real estate agent, a lot of people said to me:
“Oh man, real estate is such a tough profession. So much competition. Only the top 10% of real estate agents are making decent money.”
I remember thinking, “Well, OK… then I will just have to make sure I’m part of that top 10%. No problem.
That was my attitude from day one.
Because of that positive attitude, I became a top seller very quickly—and I even got the Rookie of the Year award for my region.
Why did I sell so many houses while others struggled to close? Because of my mindset. I believed, firmly, “I can be in the top 10%. Why not me?”
If you continually say to yourself, “I can’t be part of the top 10%,” then you won’t be.
If you continually say to yourself, “It’s so hard to find clients,” then it will be.
If you continually say to yourself, “My business won’t be profitable for at least 3 years,” then that’s probably exactly what’s going to happen.
Your thoughts determine your mood. Sour, discouraging thoughts lead to a sour, discouraging mood.
And if you’re in a sour mood, then you’re going to have sour, unpleasant day at work. And if you’re grumbling all through your workday, feeling sorry for yourself, then yeah, you’re damn right—it’s going to be tough to line up clients.
Let’s change the channel.
Instead of thinking, “It’s soo-oooo hard to find customers,” switch to an alternative thought.
Try thinking something like this:
“I can absolutely make a living doing what I love.”
“I can be part of the top 10% of earners in my industry.”
“I can defy people’s expectations.”
Or, try saying something like this to yourself:
“Some people complain that it’s so hard to find clients, but that’s NOT going to be my story. I’m not going to have a sour attitude. I’m not going to be a complainer. I’m not going to be one of those people. I’m going to radiate enthusiasm and joy. Clients will be drawn to me!”
Oh hell YES! They will be.
Attitude adjustment: COMPLETE.
It’s GO time.
