One of my best friends in the entire world who shares an office next to mine at RE/MAX in Hot Springs Village AR and who also happens to be one of the funniest people I know, came up with this catchy title as her next big country song hit! We were having one of those days and neither of us seemed to be able to remember anything good. More on that in a bit.
HELLO WORLD! This Is My Maiden Voyage Into The Deep Blue Sea of Active Rain.
This is my first foray into blogging anywhere much less ActiveRain (I'm many times late to the party but always good for some laughs) and I really wanted to start by encouraging all of you in my new vast digital family on AR who may need a boost just like I did a couple of months ago.
When you are in professional sales AND have a certain personality, it's easy to focus on that 1 out of 10 who didn't appreciate all of your efforts on their behalf, especially in this gut-wrenching market and to let that really get you down. Many of us routinely go way beyond what should be expected, and so it stings when we aren't properly appreciated or treated with respect.
DANGER! Take This With You in the Event of Stormy Conditions!!
This is my warning to you out there who beat yourself up like I do many times when these rare circumstances occur: DON'T FOCUS YOUR PRECIOUS ENERGY ON THESE SITUATIONS BECAUSE IT'S REALLY AN INDICTMENT OF THAT PERSON & NOT YOU. Yourpersonal health is depending on it. Your relationships with family, friends, and colleagues are depending on it. Your Current Clients who need your full effort & focus today are depending on it.
* CHOOSE EACH DAY TO FOCUS ON THE 9 out of 10 Who Appreciated That They Received The Best Service& Knowledge That Their Commission Could Provide.
HERE'S The Final TAKE-AWAY....... To some of you out there who may be Newbies to this business of Real Estate Sales, I would also like to offer this advice passed on to me by the top agent in my market when I first started 9 years ago: "Some of the best decisions you will ever make are those people you chose to walk away from and not do business with." In this market its been tougher to remember but my regional manager has once again reminded me recently, and he's so right. He's really right because the value of your reputation and self image are priceless and must be protected at all costs. We must remember that.
Well, Thank You for reading and for allowing me the opportunity to preach more to myself than anyone else. It's my sincere hope that it helped someone out there too. So CHEERS to Being the Best YOU that You can be.
