It Takes Awhile For Someone To See You As A Prize

Prize PersonOther than those rare in business or for that matter personal love at first sight instances,

It Takes Awhile For Someone To See You As A Prize

Prizes EARN their title!! As in a prize person to work with, to have a relationship with, to refer you to others as a REALTOR, to enjoy your company. Here is what makes YOU a prize.

Performance - you are extremely competent and get things done

Extra - you always under promise and over deliver. The extra mile one

Integrity - you NEVER surprise someone NOT doing what you say

Consistency - a BIGGIE I see in the prizes. They are gems in not having mood disorders, either being mercurial with hot and cold, or in seeming to even having very bad days. I think it is their internal cheerfulness that is their compass to keep perspective on things. They are positive people at their core

Chemistry - this is the elusive X factor. Even the prizes don't mesh well with some people, but those they are a match for it is like a magnetic attraction where you just HAVE to get back with them again. Minimal disagreements, or you FIGHT metaphorically or disagree with them while still holding hands

On the flip or converse side, those who are not consistent, or are moody, high maintenance, disgruntled, cantankerous, hurtful, selfish, mean etc. earn that HE'S NO PRIZE award. Something you do not want as a label on you.

Gems in business and in personal life need to be held on to, cause as women refer to them in love life categories, they are CATCHES and if you don't secure your prize someone else will. In the business world with mortgage professionals, inspectors, title agents, REALTORS, and appraisers for example, the prizes have their own short list of prizes and even clients that are in their sphere. It is a beautiful thing to watch when you match up with your PRIZES. OK, stop with the GOO GOO eyes now. LOL.

Gary, that is one way of looking at a person.  Although, the term TROPHY comes   mind, I like this term better.

Just doing a professional job and hopefully respected and appreciated .. that's the reward or prize.  I'd like to be thought of as a prize choice or a real treasure.

Gary,

This post is certainly a "catch!"

"Performance - you are extremely competent and get things done

This bears repeating!

Besides, I love redundancy!

I never really thought of it this way before but it makes perfect sense now.  I know many prize people and you are right there are a few that I would also give the No Prize award to.  I prefer to keep with the positive people.

Gary, very insightful as usual. You either have it, or you don't. As they say in Hawaii "Pono", do what's right.

Gary- You are a prize of a person!  You guidelines are great. We will never have to boast about how great we are to others if we are consistently doing our best all of the time.
