Here is a lesson in "If at First You Don't Succeed....."

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

   Success in anything is not an instant sort of thing....not at a career, a marriage....a relationship. It takes work....it merits education....it bespeaks experience and patience in learning what it takes to really enjoy succeeding at something. Success2 David always says "Try saying no to Sally..." you can try....but my success is in finding a way to get things done...not in excuses for why it won't work to do this or try that.

    Whenever we have ANY situation that presents a challenge to answer...the first thing that comes to mind is....someone, somewhere has had this happen....and found an answer....now we just have to find that person or people that conquered the obstacle we have encountered. 

 Ego    I was struck by A YouTube video I watched the other day...and that was exactly what this young man did to succeed.  The Judge on the show told him...he needed a teacher, a better coach, more practice to succeed.  Instead of letting his ego get in the way....He took the Judge's advice.....and this was the result.....If you watched this short clip with dry eyes....you are less emotional than I...I have put in my "....when I need to be inspired" folder...and thought you would appreciate the "Share"...and now my challenge is to figure out how to do that....Click here....and see what you can learn from the perserverance of a 15 year old....(actually began at 13).  

    Get out your tissue....and know that whatever obstacles you face can be conquered....one note at a time.

        If you or anyone you know is looking to Sell or Buy their next "happily ever after" in southeastern Wisconsin...Call the Hansons, we are honored to be of service for all things real estate.

     P.S.  We must have a "magic computer"....when we click "Here" it works....grrrr....alternately if you have the time...and the tissue...you can go to You Tube and put 

in the search bar...

sally, not sure where that video is but there are many life lessons people ignore...wash, rinse & repeat (i dislike that phrase...it's banal but true)...mentors are so important in life.

Not finding the link, but that's ok I can only imagine what this young man may have had to go through. Mentors, coaches, whatever, can only help to help someone succeed.

Sally and David the judge to this young man from a low point in his life to a high point in his life.  He could have let the criticism defeat him but instead he used it to motivate him to succeed.

Sally and David- I just opened the link in another window and will watch it after I comment here!  But these are the kinds of stories that I love and that we all need more of.

I had to come back because I did watch the audition of this young man and was inspired and clapping and smiling and everything else all at the same time.

Good morning Sally.

It worked just fine for me.  We watched America's Got Talent last night.  The emotions on some of those are overwhelming

I tell kids all the time that you get better at anything one step at a time.  If you want to accomplish something, perseverance rules.
