Motivational Monday - The WIND!

By
Real Estate Agent with Diane Turton, Realtors, Forked River, NJ

Today's weather forecast here is "windy".  We're I think this quote is appropriate....

 

Sailing

QUOTE:

       "The pessimist complains about the wind;

                   the optimist expects it to change;

                                 the realist adjusts the sails."

Toula, it was blowing pretty hard this morning, the optimist part of me said to just put a few extra coins in my pocket this morning so that the wind wouldn't blow me away

Toula, I never heard the quote but stay so focused on optimism that I sometimes forget to "adjust the sails."

Hi Toula, I like the quote as it applies to life.  If we're talking about weather, I really dislike wind :-)

Hi Toula.  It's so true in life.  And those who won't change the sails eventually capsize.
