The Weekend Box Office Tip is a new segment which will include some real life tips to better the quality of your lives. In this section I will collect one single tip from significant health and lifestyle influencers and entrepreneurs around us and cover their story behind it.
In this super fast life it is difficult to find time to reflect on the quality of your life. As the weekend gives you some time to unwind, it also presents an opportunity to introspect. Making it the perfect time for the weekend box office tip.
Life startles you at times, and it startles you more when you are awakened to the magic sprinkled around you. Common situations carry invaluable lessons. Learning these is the secret to an abundant and fulfilling life. One of these lessons which I learnt as a result of two different, difficult situations is the weekend box office tip I would want to give you all. Coping with handicaps.
The story behind the tip
I had a terrible injury 2 weeks back, when my left ankle twisted. The ankle was swollen like a ball and I feared the worst. Considering my health and fitness centric lifestyle it was a body blow and a big blast before Diwali. With so many caring people around me, it was impossible to even think about restarting my fitness schedule(which, as some of you might know, is like oxygen to me).
After two days I couldn’t control the urge of heading to the gym, and overlooking medical advise, did just that. But understanding the responsibilities on my head, of selling luxury properties in Navi Mumbai and being a long term health influencer, I adapted my workout so as to negate the journey altogether. (I will share how later on in this article.)

Selling luxury properties in Navi Mumbai gets my attention to the second handicap. With so many rules and laws, demonetization, RERA, GST, applied in such a short time, the dimensions of doing business in India have changed drastically. Real Estate is one of the worst hit, because of ticket sizes and the omnipresent trust issues in the field.
Demonetization sucked out the money from the system, which was essential for businesses like real estate, at it was second nature for the business. RERA and GST added more confusion than removing it because of the complicated procedures and added tax burden to end users.
These major handicaps to the industry definitely increased the scope of excuses for people failing to sell properties, but I, just like with my sprained ankle, am learning how to adapt and cope with this handicap.
What Coping with the sprained Ankle taught me about Selling Luxury Properties?
The weekend box office tip, coping with handicap, was learnt with the sprained ankle and is coming to my assistance while selling properties.
What I understood with my sprained ankle and applied to selling properties is:
- Limited but effective movement– Choosing a few effective movements was the need of the hour with my sprained ankle. Similarly choosing a few good methods for marketing property and being absolutely involved in them was what I carried to my work
- More mindful movement– Attention to detail was magnified during my movements with the sprained ankle. The handicap in the business, has given me an opportunity to micro manage processes which were considered tertiary earlier.
- Some time off only leads to self discovery– The cycle of pursuing passions puts you in an infinite loop of doing. Spending some time out of it not only helps you discover more about yourself but also cater to the aspects of life you haven’t been giving importance. Lesser time at the gym courtesy the sprained ankle made me rediscover my passion for reading. Similarly the handicapped nature of the market made me take more time out for family and friends.
- The power of persistence– With the power of persistence all handicaps can be handled. My ankle is doing better and so is how I deal with my sales. By trying out newer exercises and methods of training I coped with my limited movement. Similarly redefining strategies and innovations have helped me come to terms with the real estate market.
Utilizing these I was able to recreate a new self image, which is both strong and resourceful. The signs of progress are noticeable in the videos below which is made to assist lazy people in working out, which I just created a few days back.
As for selling luxury properties the renewed optimism is bearing good results. Attention to details and innovations is bringing in a revolution which is leading to a more professional and organised approach to insure proper functioning and elevated sales.
You might not have a sprained ankle or selling luxury properties in a bearish market. But the above Weekend Box office Tips can be applied in every walk of life where you feel handicapped.
Have a great weekend.
