This past weekend I was privileged to share in the ceremonial celebrations of a couple of collegiate graduations; one unpretentious and the other more of a true European tradition. Both revered as a milestone where a life-stage concludes yet an new life-chapter "commences". Listening to the two different addresses the life meaning was relevant, the message often embodied from a Keller Williams Realty associate partner. For me a deja vu, an AHA.
Move forward with passion, energy and more importantly-goals. Love what you do and the fruits will follow. Define who you are, and make a difference. College purpose was not to lecture to be technical, understand the B.S. of "science" or to B.A- literary but to "launch your learning journey" through real life assignments in other words to provide a foundation of learning to be learning based ("Mastery")-"Knowledge grows into wisdom" accomplished through experience. Also delivered were four key ideals that could define character, display strength and allow perseverance ultimately leading to achievement.
Number #1: To be RESPECTFUL of others. Learn to work as a team. (How many times have you heard that through your professional career?) #2 COMMIT to being the best you can be. Apply yourself. Pledge to doing it better; #3 Be a life long LEARNER and #4 the more you GIVE the more you receive. Learn to serve. There is a particular similarity between the messge to a collage of academic degree candidates, and the address delivered to masterminded real estate professionals of Keller Williams Realty. Mastery of professionals who instill PASSION in all that they do; practice an on-going learning based mindset, and conveys a genuine care fo those around. We know these values as a culture and a belief system.
It is illustrated that through teamwork everyone achieves more, and success is a result of working through people. Commitment in all things. On the cover of the National Best Sellers "The Millionaire Real Estate Agent is "It's not about the money...it's about being the BEST you can be".
Educators, professors, and leaders of a high-minded outlook share a proclamation throughout various life stages - Drive your own bus. Deliver through passion and energy. Adversity is a test of strength the result of the choices presented may lead to consequence or effect constructive change. The outcome is designed by you. Mindset is fundamental. Success is 90% mindset. Your mindset affects us all. Everyday can be a transformation of momentum into lifelong accomplishments. Click the picture for "A Model of Opportunity".
Don't be afraid of growing, be afraid of standing still.
