Don't Give Up -- Show Up!Things can get tough and at times they will,

"When everything seems to be going against you,

remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it."

~ Henry Ford


There are times in our daily business that things seem to be coming at us faster than we can get out of the way or tackle them.  The same holds true in our personal lives, we no sooner take one step forward then we find ourselves taking two steps backwards.  Ever have one of those days?

So how do we handle these opportunities?  How do we start moving forward again?  If you look at what Henry Ford has to say, you may not be doing anything wrong you just might need to throttle up, fasten your seat belt and prepare for takeoff.  Going into the wind will give you the lift you need to get your wheels off of the ground.

Smile and don't holler STOP, push the throttle full forward and prepare for takeoff.  That new plan that you worked up just might need that full throttle to get moving!!

Great reminder, Don.  Sometimes it's not one of those days, but one of those months or one of those years...the important thing is to perservere and stay the course.  Eventually the turbulence stops and it's easy to fly high!

Hi Don:

That's a fantastic quote...

Something that we all need to remember when times get tough.

Anybody who hasn't had one of those days probably isn't working in real estate.

Everyone has difficult days, but the sun comes out eventually and tomorrow can be different and better.

Hanging with positive people certainly helps me during those days when things aren't going my way.
