Monday Musings: Think Good Thoughts Because What We Think, We Become!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

We took this picture of this wonderfully shaped tree stump that resembles a horse at the Carpinteria Bluffs, a 52 acre nature reserve.   We have been exploring the new trail which leads to the Tar Pit Park, where this sculptural stump is located.  Here are some of our favorite quotes on the effect of those thoughts one may choose to dwell on:

 

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

What we think we become!

Buddha

 

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Buddha

 

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

Henry David Thoreau

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.

Marcus Aurelius

Happy Monday!

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN UNDER 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in under 30 seconds? Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  You should be able to answer each of the following questions in about 20-30 seconds (the time frame of a short elevator ride):  What do you do? - How do you do it?  -  How are you different?   

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

Nick & Trudy Vandekar, 610-203-4543 we are recovering slowly.  Since last Wednesday, we have had trucks using the private road to the Salt Marsh Reserve to pick up mud from our creeks.  They have been here everyday including Sunday, and at 5 minute intervals as one goes in to get loaded, an empty one arrives.  Luckily our mud came from uninhabited areas.  In Montecito the same is happening, although I have a feeling it is a bit slower given that access is very slow.  Even the train takes one hour and a half to get to safe ground in Santa Barbara...A

I'd be hard-pressed to argue with any of these quotes, Alexandra and Ron. I'm also hard-pressed to pick a favorite... they are all my favorites.

Hi Ron and Alexandra, love those quotes. As the photo was loading and the to of the tree stump came into view, I instantly thought of a giraffe. Horse works too!

I would love to be walking in that area today.  Forecast is for a high of 13 today.  Who knows I may be late getting to the office today, if I show up at all.
