"Surviving YOUR Serengeti", 7 Skills to Master Business and Life by Stefan Swanepoel is a read that not only identifies with those in business, but one's LIFE itself. I guarantee this will be a #1 Seller sooner than Stefan may realize.
Just in the first two Chapters, you can identify with the people in the first two Chapters and your personal life. We are all going through life where there is change, maybe because of our economy, time, or life's choices. Regardless, there may be strengths you may have within you to help you in business and life itself once you understand what it may be., You can conquer your dreams. Just don't forget to dream....
I took the quiz and I am the Enterprising Crocodile...
I can relate to the instinctive skills of the ENTERPRISING Crocodilein my day to day life. I will continue to think outside of the box, dedicate myself to my business as a Realtor (R) to succeed, and have determination. Unlike, the crocodile, I cannot survive long periods of time without food. :) Therefore, I will go forward with my path of succes I have set for 2011, work hard and may even sacrifice sleep to reach these goals, but I will survive LIFE!
I copied and pasted this entry before I took my quiz from Stefan's writing in "Surviving YOUR Serengeti" and made a comment of what I got from it and it's amazing that there are keys terms that identify the ANIMAL IN ME ;)
WHILE I WAS READING... Sounds like something I would say...
" So, you ' re saying that we should learn to be more unrelenting?" Anthony asked.
" Yes. People frequently give up too soon. Everyone has his or her own personal Serengeti to survive: job loss, divorce, or an illness, for example.
However, people who exhibit single - minded determination understand that it ' s often not the fastest or the strongest one that wins the race - it ' s the one that stays the course and goes the full distance, " Zachariah continued.
I feel like those of us in the business of REAL ESTATE that stay on course will have PERSEVERANCE, DETERMINATION, CONFIDENCE AND MOMENTUM TO SUCCEED! I BELIEVE WHAT IS IMPORTANT to you at the end of the day.... IS YOU!
YOU HAVE IT!
YOU JUST NEED TO BRING OUT THAT ANIMAL IN YOU! ~Lauren Selinsky
AND AS STEFAN SWANEPOEL WOULD SAY IN "SURVIVING THE SERENGETI" ALL YOU WILL NEED IS "ENDURANCE"
AND THE LAST WORDS READ IN CHAPTER 2:
Remember that anything worth having, any challenge
worth achieving, or any goal worth reaching will require endurance.

NOW, DO YOU BELIEVE ME THAT IT'S A MUST READ!??? GO ON IT'S A CLICK AWAY>>>
Surviving your Serengeti provides a metaphor for the struggles and strife that every business person and business face in an ever changing environment, flush with new technology and an edict to adapt. These are things we, as real estate professionals, face every day. By looking at how the animals of the Serengeti use their basic instincts to survive, Stefan provides a roadmap by which we can all master our own skills to not only survive, but flourish.
"The 1.5 million wildebeest rely on stubborn endurance and support from the herd to survive; the alligator is opportunistic; the cheetah ruthlessly effective; the giraffe embodies grace, the lion a master strategist, the mongoose is a risk-taker, the elephant is an excellent communicator."
We've secured an exclusive advance copy of the first two chapters of the book from the publishing company to share with the members of ActiveRain. We hope that you will take an opportunity to read the first two chapters of the book, then take the 'What animal are you?' quiz. Stefan is no rookie when it comes to engaging his audience, so I imagine many of you have already taken the quiz, after finding it on Facebook or Twitter. Over 6000 people have taken the quiz in the last 60 days.
Once you download and read the first two chapters, and take the quiz, we ask that you write a blog post about the first two chapters or the quiz. Share what you think about the parable of the animal skills, or the suitability of the Serengeti as a metaphor for your own journey through life. Take a look at your results from the fun three minute quiz. Do they ring true for you and your business? Do you see yourself in the challenges and anxieties faced by Sean Spencer, the tale's protaganist? Pick your own topic about which to write. We don't want to put too many restraints upon that which you wish to write. Have fun with the blog post and we hope that the challenge inspires you to pick the book up on Amazon or in your local book store and finish the tale, while at the same time supporting a gentleman that has given so much of himself to this industry.
NOW, IT'S BEEN 7,100 PEOPLE THAT TOOK THE QUIZ AND THE BOOK HAS ONLY BEEN OUT 3 DAYS. LET'S GET TO A MILLION>>> TAKE THE QUIZ NOW...
