How to Double Happiness
As a Real Estate agent you are the Eyes and Site for your clients. In a way, you see the property and you “see” your buyers in it. When I read the following “Author Unknown” story it hit me that Realtors are the “Vision of Real Estate”. Imagine, while reading the following story just how important your words are and how you can Double the Happiness of a buyer and a seller. . By the way, if If Realtors are the vision that must make title insurance at least the ears or nose.
The story goes like this…
Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would describe to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.
The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young couples walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.
As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.
One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn’t hear the band, he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.
One morning the nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window. He had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.
As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the beautiful park and lake outside. He strained and slowly turned to look out the window beside his bed.
It faced a blank wall.
When the nurse returned, the man asked the nurse why his deceased roommate had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said,
There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.
Happiness when shared is doubled.
