Like attracts Like

So, I take a long look at what I was trying to do myself with my own business and for awhile, I wasn't really happy with the results I was seeing from myself.  So, I thought to myself, "How can I serve my clients, my friends and potential future clients, better?"  Was I going to suddenly wake up and things would be better?  Was I going to find the latest greatest program at the next real estate seminar?  Or was I needing to seek help outside of my comfort zone?

I chose to do the latter.  I chose to find someone who was doing what I wanted to do, which was, real estate, lots and lots of it.  I wanted to find someone who I believed to be successful, driven and well, like minded as myself. 

And, I found him.  Well, not really him but rather a TEAM of people all driven to be better.  All driven to be something other than road-kill from this current state of affairs in the business. 

So, there's a part of me that is eating at me, saying, "You can be like this, you are like this, what happened?"  Nothing happened.  (Imagine the song from Rocky popping into my head, ringing my ears, EYE of THE TIGER)

I lost the Eye of the Tiger hunger.  I shouldn't say I lost it, I just got side tracked.  My eyes were in desperate need of some re-adjustments.  I wasn't looking high enough.  They were barely floating off the ground, until this TEAM of people came along and said, "Hey, eyes on me, up here..." Look up.

I just wanted to share this with you because, for awhile, my eyes were leaning towards the door.  My eyes were leading my thoughts, not my thoughts leading my eyes. 

I just wanted to say, thanks to Chris and Kristen.  Thanks to Shane.  Thanks to Steve and the other cast members that will help make me into a star again.

You attract what you are looking for. If you are looking for a teacher, a teacher will come. Just make sure, this is what you want to learn.
