If Wishing Could.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I have lived long enough to understand that every day is challenging and every day is wonderful. It is a conundrum I find real. I have noticed that all people do not accept my analogy. Some folks spend most of their time wishing that things were different, better or even possible: but they do nothing. Doing is the key to to change. 

When challenges happen, and in my experience they happen a lot, it is important to know wishing it away is unlikely to make any difference at all. Can action make everything better all the time? Certainly not but inaction won't change a thing. Make today a great day, get busy and get out of your head and don't wish the world away.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

I couldn't help looking at that picture of the elephant and smiling.  It must be a girl, and she just found the perfect color to dye her hair.

I watched the Vietnam series by Ken Burns.  It was both painful and informative.  I found it so amazing that at least two presidents bold face lied to the American people to either get elected, or re-elected, even when it cost lives and treasure.

There are can do people that know how to make the most of every challenging day, and then they are those that stop at the challenge and throw their hands in the air in despair.

This brings to mind the Robert Kennedy quote, "There are those who look at things they way the are and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?"

Sheila good point.  I see to many people sitting around hoping for business, but doing nothing about getting business.

Good morning Sheila.

If one takes no action they are doomed to only wishing for a change  Want a change to take place, one has to take that first step on their own to make it happen

It was a very porductive day. I got to see my son and daughter in law. I haven't seen them in 5 months. My son is leaving for Italy in 10 days and we plan to go in April or May to see him.
