Faith And Discipline

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with South Florida Real Estate & Development, Inc. BK3027955

Another one of my favorite Vince Lombardi quotes, " It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner."

In the world of depression - whether psychological or economic conditions that surround us - you can only succeed if you have that "winner" inside of you.

You know - before you are a great success - what drives you to succeed and to have great success in life!

Faith and hard work - some call it "gumption" - you know you have when you have it!

You know it when you come into the presence of someone who has it - it is transferable.

Be careful who you associate with - success or failure depends on it!

You future depends upon it!

As a newer agent I surround myself with others who are motivated and have "gumption".  I feel blessed to work with some of the great agents in the Long & Foster office in Gainesville, VA.  Chris Ann Cleland, Mary Beth Eisenhard, Trish Kapinos, Diana Feldman....the list goes on and on.  That office has a lot of GUMPTION!

Nicholas,

The only person you have to blame at the end of the day is yourself. That stuck with me for years after my dad told me that.

I just read another post where the writer said that she's an expert in failure because she learns so much when things go wrong.  I love the line,

 

"What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner."

 

That's the key, isn't it?

One thing for sure, in the real estate industry, we are deeply influenced by others around us and with whom we have business.
