mortgage: Thanksgiving! A time to be thankful! - 11/25/08 01:07 AM
I guess it might be pretty easy to be less than enthusiastic this Thanksgiving.  Things in the real estate and mortgage worlds have not been easy.  However,  I  am very thankful!  All of my children and their families will join us for our Thanksgiving meal.  I'll get to see my beautiful grand children and see the unconditional love they have for me in their eyes.  Me, with grand children?  How can that be?  Shouldn't my own children still be babies themselves?  Where did the time go?
My wife, though tired from all the preparations and cooking, will be thrilled.  Our family … (0 comments)

mortgage: 5 Things - 11/21/08 04:05 AM
I'm sure you all know the things you need to do to be succesful.  I wanted to share a few things that help me.  Whether your field is real estate or mortgages, the principals are really the same.
1. Spend a few minutes every day in personal development.  Take the time for yourself to improve your mind, your health, your business acumen or maybe just your attitude.  You owe it to yourself to be the best you can be.
2. Meditate and visualize.  It only takes a few minutes and really helps develope a positive attitude.  Keep your goals in front … (0 comments)

mortgage: Quote of the day - 11/20/08 11:14 PM
As I was preparing to send out my non-conforming rate sheet this morning, I was going through the multitude of quotes I scan every morning.  I always try to find something that is meaningful and uplifting.  I came across one that seems to fit the "times" in which we find ourselves.
"Bear in mind, if you are going to amount to anything, that your success does not depend upon the brilliancy and the impetuosity with which you take hold, but upon the ever lasting and sanctified buldoggedness with which you hang on after you have taken hold." Dr. A. B. Meldrum

mortgage: POWER OF POSITIVES - 11/20/08 03:30 AM
It's so easy for us to get caught up in all the negatives with which the medai constantly bombards us.  I've made up my mind that I am going to do my very best to focus on positives. 
Out words are so powerful.  For many of us, our primary sources of conversation are via the telephone or e-mail.  It's been pretty surprising to me just how often I'm negative in my conversations.  Too many no I can't do that, no that won't work for this loan program, or "you're borrower has a (fill in the blank) credit score and you want … (8 comments)

mortgage: Writing Your Goals - 11/19/08 05:18 AM
Like many of you, I have heard over the years how important it is to write your goals.  I've done it several times.  Looking back, it amazes me how much more successful I've been during the times I've actually written my goals down.  I think we all have some idea of what our goals are...somewhere in the recesses of our mind we "think" we know what we want.  Over the past few weeks I've been very introspective about my goals.  I've actually taken the time to write them down and make sure I keep them in focus.
Like me, I'm sure … (0 comments)
