I often reflect on my reasons for making money as a Real Estate Agent. I can tell you that my main reason for making money is not to get rich, although if it happens I will not turn it away. My main reason for making money is to do good. Good like supporting my wife and children and giving to those that are in need and most of all giving a share back to my God and Savior.
I sometimes wonder what would happen if we as a people gave more, especially us Realtors who sometimes do really well from a financial stand point. I wonder if we gave more to those in need around us, would that lessen the dependence people have on the government? This is definitely a time of great confusion for many people. For so long we have been a wants based society that now we view things like a plasma TV, cable and Internet as a need for survival. Not that I have anything against watching TV, but I really do think we have lost our way to some degree.
Do you spend time reflecting on your life each day? Self examination is a healthy part of human existence and living. How many of you spend time just being quiet for a few minutes with no noise around you? Seems like an almost impossible mission and I know it isn't just because we don't try. We get so caught up in this rat race that we lose sight of the most simple things in life. I live in the beautiful state of Colorado in Denver and I cannot tell you how often I take the beautiful Panoramic Landscape of the Mountains for granted.
Here is my question for you, do you think that I am on to something here? Should we take the opportunity to reexamine our lives in these hard economic times? I don't think there is anything wrong with making as much money as we can while we have to work. The question is at what cost do we pursue this? Forgive me in advance if I am getting to philosophical, but I am really interested in hearing your thoughts on this matter.
