real estate: Take Action: No Rest For The Ambitious - 04/23/21 09:46 AM
"The past should be a springboard...
not a hammock."
~ Satirist, Ivern Ball
 
 
 
Real Estate taught me this lesson
the quote offers.
My past performance
doesn't guarantee my future results
it just implies...
I did it before - I can do it again.
But, I still have to get after it.
 
Your action for today
is to see if you've been
resting on your laurels.
If so, get moving.

real estate: Take Action: Strength and Honor - 04/20/21 06:59 AM
"The best index to a person's character is
how he treats people who can't do him any good,
and how he treatspeople who can't fight back."
~ Columnist, Abigail Van Buren (Dear Abby)
 
 
Your action for today
is to think of someone
whose character you admire.
 
My grandmother always reminded me
that my character is
who I am when no one is looking.
And then she'd always remind me
(with a wink)
...God is watching always.

real estate: This Week...Testing Our Patience - 07/12/20 06:41 AM

I only re-post two types of "other people's posts": 
 
1. Great info more need to experience and learn from.
2. Something that moved me and I want to share and inspire others with.
 
Today I feature both in this simple, yet elegant train of thought
and it was offered by (no surprise) our very own Kathy Streib 
I needed to take a couple pauses this week to regain patience and perspective,
to breathe in from the nose and breathe out from the mouth (Namaste).
Kathy's post was a great reminder with quotes like this:
Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. … (5 comments)

The Magnifying Glass... 
Is it Revealing Our Character or Our Cracks?
 
The pandemic is a magnifying glass and it's trained on us - mankind.
It has exposed people, revealed who they are during change, uncertainty and fear.
Some folks are very Positive and Uplifting, others are Chicken Little and their sky is falling.
Some people have vanished-where'd they go?
They do not return calls, texts or emails...why?
Others are more present than ever, funny and encouraging calls, posts and videos, etc.
Some people are performing amazing acts of kindness, charitable efforts and fun videos to lift our spirits. Other are spreading selfish negativity, doubt and fear.
