Day 23:  What do I blog about?
To all the members who have joined "100 Days to Change", I would like to thank you for your dedication and support.  The Holidays are over and I'm sure that everyone spent quality time with friends, family and loved ones.  Now what do we do?
We blog!  We blog about our proactive activities.  We blog about what's working, what's not working, what we could do better, what we can't stand to do, about new ideas, about old ideas...etc.  The key to this group is sharing.  Share with all of us what is going on in … (3 comments)

Day 17:  Journal Entries
Be sure to stay on top of your journal entries.  If you have joined "100 Days to Change" and somehow missed the part about purchasing a composition book to serve as your journal then don't freak out.  It's not too late.  Just go to any drug store or Walmart, look in the school supplies area and locate one of those basic Composition Books that have the black and white pattern on front and back and is bound with the solid black binding.
On the very first page, create a header called "Daily Affirmation".
This is where you will … (7 comments)

Day 16:  Addison Riley's 3rd Birthday and Christmas Eve!
 It's Christmas Eve and not a lot of work is going on around my house today for you see, it is also Addison Riley's Birthday.  I'm spending a lot of time with the family right now as I hope all of you are doing. 
Although the clock is ticking and we are now Only 85 Days from our goal, you are not expected to work every single day.

Day 15:  Someone asked me today, "How is the real estate market?"
"It's unbelievable," I replied. 
I immediately saw their eyes open.  I could tell that I took them off guard.  Then I jumped right in and said, "It's a great time to buy."  Will they use me to buy some real estate?  I don't know.  But what I did was to start a buzz.  If you're not talking it then you're not doing it.  You've got to constantly promote yourself and always work towards closing.  After all, that's how we get paid.
What we are all doing right now is … (6 comments)

Day 12:  "My name is John Riding.  I just joined your group on active rain.  When you started talking about "I am" satements, I was prompted to send you a card and let you know that YOU are making a difference.  Thanks for all of the encouragement in your posts.  Keep up the good work!"  -John Riding
Thank you, John.  Thank you for providing me strength during these difficult times. 
I started "100 Days to Change" simply because I had to change my financial situation in order to survive and provide for my young family.  Your card affirms that I am … (1 comments)

Day 11:  BPOs and HRC work.  Is this a good way to generate leads and conduct business?  I think so.  Just don't get to involved with your time.  Try to get them done as soon as possible.  Asses the situation and make it happen.  I once heard a very successful Realtor say, "Some will, some won't, so what".  I try to keep that in mind when I do this work.  It's easy to get too wrapped up in this kind of work.  Just know that these activities are part of your pipeline and that you must concentrate on the activities that … (6 comments)

Day 10:  Hello All.  I'm seeing my activity increase.  I'm not sure if it is the push here at the end of the year or if it is due to all of the proactive activities that I'm doing.  Time blocking is definitely helping me to set the time aside to do my various proactive activities.  Has anyone else noticed an increase in you markets?  I've been trying to get a couple of REO deals squeezed in before the end of the year and it seems that they are moving really well.  I'm also very pleased with the networking being generated from "100 … (2 comments)

Day 5:  Today I met an attorney and passed him my card.  I don't think that I've ever met an attorney like him.  He was compassionate and seemed to care.  I look forward to the business that I will receive from him.  I also met a Realtor from Philly.  I gave him my card.  I look forward to any business that he may send me as well.
Talk it up.  No matter what you are doing.  Talk it up.  Get to know people and they will remember you.  Stay positive and up beat.  They will see how great you are.  When … (4 comments)

Day 4 was a fun day for me.  I decided to work a half day and then spend time with my wife and children at Disney On Ice.  What a great day!  Not only was I able to work with clients in the morning but I got to see those beautiful smiles on my children's faces as Mickey and Minnie Mouse pulled out onto the ice in their little red car.
I'd like to take this time to tell everyone what my 5 Things I Want to Change are:
1.  Improve my financial situation
2.  Spend more time with my family

We are underway.  Day 3 has come and gone.  By now we should all have our journals, have our 5 Things That We Want to Change, have our statements of affirmation, have our message of empowerment/inspiration, have written down that we must keep a Positive Attitude at all times and have written down that we Must Persevere.  All of these items should be written on the first page of your journal.  Every single day, the first thing you do as soon as you role out of the bed is read out loud the first page of your journal.

networking: 100 Days To Change started Today and Here is a Re-Post - 12/08/08 10:20 AM
Today is the first day to "100 Days to Change".  It's kind of like the first day of school.  No one really knows what to expect.  Some people are still trying to find the class and others are in the right room but may not have what they need in their book bag.  If you're just finding your way to the room then come on in and have a seat.  If you found the room but haven't purchased a composition book for your journal then that's okay; pick one up today.  The first homework assignment was for everyone to write down … (4 comments)

We have arrived.  It is finally the last day before we start our "100 Days to Change".  If you haven't already picked up your generic composition book, the kind you find in any drug store or Walmart, then do so.  It's the black and white patterned one with the solid black binder.  If you are unclear then just get some sort of notebook that will serve as your journal.  I asked other group members to write down the Top 5 Things that they want to Change.  The response was great!  If you haven't already then do so and prioritize your list … (5 comments)

Thank you for setting me straight.  When I was speaking with Becky King of Keller Williams she said that this book was a must read.  By the immediate response that I have received from the ActiveRain community I know that Becky is genuine and truly a professional.  It's not too often that you find a fellow real estate agent working for another agency in the same market offering such helpful insight.  If there is anyone out there that would like to join a self-help, free networking group then check out "100 Days to Change".
