In Part 1 of Go Away! Be Happy! Life is Good! I wrote about how essential it is for a REALTOR® to get away from business for the purpose of self-renewal. I came back from my travels more refreshed and motivated to be the best I could be in life and in business. Here's what happened within 20 days.
August 13, 2012: 2024 Winding Creek in Flower Mound went on the market. I am the listing Agent. From the time the home was listed until now, here's what happed:
Owner did what he needed to do to get the property listed in MLS.
I marketed the property to get exposure and results
I went away between August 17 - August 25
There were 52 showings
There was one Keller Williams Office Tour
There were several prospective buyers
On August 31 the Seller had an Executed Contract
We all know that life IS short. Time IS of the essence. I say, DO what you have to do NOW before it gets TOO late! Next year at this time the Seller will have moved on and the Buyer will be enjoying their beautiful new home and pool.
LIFE IS GOOD!
The only person who can make you a slave of your labor is YOU! Today's technological advances makes it possible to conduct business away from the office. If a person is confident and implements a plan to get something done it IS possible to achieve results.
While I was away I looked deeply into the windows of my soul and I saw opportunities to pay attention to the things in life that really matter to me. I listened to the sounds of nature and I heard stimulating sounds that served as a reminder: Relaxation is not a luxury - it's a requirement. My sensory skills were sharpened through the cool breezes in the trees, the sights, the sounds, the beautiful things I saw - how I felt in the moment is what really matter. Life at home away from the office goes on and you can't control everything.
When you do the right thing for yourself and others you are FREE. Today is Sunday, a day of rest. Here in America, we are celebrating Labor Day Weekend. May you have chance to pause and reflect on what's most important to you. There are always windows of opportunity. When you look deeply into the well of your soul, you will realize YOU are not a slave of your labor. Only YOU have the power and the authority to do what you need to do. Please DO it now.
