Once Again,  I hope this makes you smile and you have a great weekend!!

A broker was dismayed when a brand new real estate office much like his own opened up next door and erected a huge sign which read 'BEST AGENTS.' He was horrified when another competitor opened up on his right, and announced its arrival with an even larger sign, reading 'LOWEST COMMISSIONS.' The broker panicked, until he got an idea. He put the biggest sign of all over his own real estate office. It read: 'MAIN ENTRANCE'.

"Recognition is the greatest motivator" ~Gerald C. Eakdale
Don't forget to recognize those around you as recognition truly is the greatest motivator.  We all know how it feels to accomplish something at the top of our priority list but remind yourself of the feeling when someone says ‘Great Job' or you see your name on a bulletin board for your accomplishment.
