Dreams: Always Have One

Real Estate Agent


Dreams......we all need to have a dream.  A dream that is personal and unique to your own situation.  If you don't have a dream, you will continue to travel in circles going nowhere fast in life. 

Leander McClain has always had a dream or three.  My dreams have changed over the years.  As I got older and wiser, some of the things in my dreams have been replaced by other things. 

As a young man, I was infatuated by cars.  I could tell you the name make and model of every car that we passed on the street.  I always wanted to own a Rolls Royce.  I read about the craftsmanship.  The specially bred cows that were used for the leather in the car.  That was a great dream. Today, if I could afford a Rolls Royce, I think I would take the money and do something more satisfying with it......like build some housing for medium income families.  Families that are working hard to improve their situation in life. 

Was there anything wrong with the Rolls Royce dream?? NO!

It was my dream and it continues to be.  I still love cars.  Maybe one day i will buy that Rolls Royce....maybe I won't.  But I will continue to have a dream that drives me to improve myself and my business.

I bring my same dreams to my real estate practice in Burlington County, NJ.  As a real estate consultant, I work with my clients to help make their dreams come true.  It's not all about money.  The look on a first time home buyers face when you hand them to their new home is priceless!  The look on the face of a retiree who just sold their home and is moving south is priceless!  When I do a great job for my clients, they take care of me by referring me their family, friends and people they care about.

So I say


If you don't have a dream, you'd better find one quick.  I have many, if you like, I can share one of mine with you.

Have a great day

Make This YOUR Best Year Ever

Great post - and very true.  It's akin to "we all need a purpose that drives us."

Leander, I think you probably have some good dreams.  You seem to be always in good spirits.  Someone with such a big heart and good attitude must have good dreams.
