What Mortgage Girlfriends Can Learn From Wonder Woman

Have you seen the recent Wonder Woman movie?

Here’s what one movie critic wrote: 

Diana/Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is often naive, but she’s clearly the heroine of the story, and her interest in saving people means she acts bravely and selflessly, setting an example for others. Both starring and directed by women, this is a surprisingly diverse superhero story with strong messages about teamwork, courage, and compassion.

If you read between the lines, Wonder Woman teaches women many lessons that can be adapted to your mortgage business and personal life.

Here are just a few I’d like to share with you.

Wonder Woman Doesn’t Take NO for an Answer

Her mother forbade her to train as a warrior.  So she turned to her Aunt General Antiope for help.  When you have a passion.  A gut feeling about something. If someone says no to you, ask “why not?” Keep asking until someone says YES.

Wonder Woman Has Mentors

Her aunt pushed her to train and succeed, but also called her out when she doubted her strength.  Find a person who is already doing the same thing you would LIKE to do.   It’s one of the benefits of your Mortgage Girlfriend’s membership.

Wonder Woman Asks Questions – Lots of Them

Before she took the risk to defend the town, she asked questions about the inhabitants. The town. The enemy.  In the mortgage business, one of the most important ways to increase your product and underwriting knowledge is to ask the tough questions.  If you would like to increase your real estate agent referral base, interview them by asking questions to determine what makes them successful.

Wonder Woman Takes Risks

Diana left the island that she grew up on to save the world.  While you may not want to save the world, don’t hold back when it comes to trying something new.  Ask yourself, what’s the best outcome and what’s the worst outcome if I try this new idea or strategy?    If you can accept the “worst” outcome—go for it.

Wonder Woman Improvises

The battle does not go as planned, but along the way she reassess the situation and improvises.  Being open to “change” is the road to “creativity,” which will help you roll with the punches.

If you have seen the movie or are an avid fan of Wonder Woman, what would you add to this list?
