Knows How to Play Through The Pain
Rodgers knows a thing or two about getting hit and getting back up and returning to the game. Known for getting injured and returning to play, Rodgers solidified this during his famous knee injury sustained during the 2018 season opener against the Chicago Bears. During this game, he injured his knee and was carted off the field, only to return in the second half and win the game.
In your real estate career you will certainly have high points and low points. Throughout both, you must remind yourself that it’s important to be persistent and keep working. Channel your inner Aaron Rodgers when you hit a low point, a bump in the road when you think you can’t get through it. Through persistence comes success, and sometimes you just need to stick it out.
Keeps Calm in a Crisis
Aaron Rodgers is an MVP Pro Football Quarterback, a Super Bowl winner, has amazing accuracy, and is often the calmest player on the field. Part of Rodgers’ mystique is just how calm he looks doing all of this, even during the most high-pressure situations.
Rodgers' ability to stay cool may seem like an innate or preternatural gift, and to some extent a genetic predisposition. What really helps him keep his calm is the confidence in knowing that he's prepared so well for every situation and nothing will catch him off guard. Rodgers often says that he feels this confidence after putting in the work Monday through Saturday of that week and in the off-season. Being prepared and organized will give you the confidence to be a successful real estate agent.
Great Leadership On and Off The Field
An important trait of any great leader is their character both on the field and off. Aaron Rodgers exemplifies his strong character by giving back financially and with his time.

He felt that he owed something to that program, and made the decision to give back to a group that helped him get to his current position.
