So I am sitting here at my desk this morning. My phone is located to the right of my laptop and my coffee to the left. My "To-Do" list is filled out, with logging into my favorite blogosphere being one of the first things I do to start my business day. Pretty normal morning for me. But something is different...I noticed my picture that I use for ActiveRain. The reason for using this picture is the same. It was chosen because I wanted to remind myself of God's beauty with the world we live in and also to symbolize that everything is within our grasp. But things haven't been really working out that way over the last few months. Why?
Well, as I rediscovered my reasoning for this picture, something clicked inside. I don't know what clicked, I just know it did. I have been spending a lot of time in the Word and also reading some books on enlightenment. I am nowhere near this bliss that they discuss, but I can feel that I am just a little bit closer each day.
In our world of Real Estate, whether it is representing the selling/buying of it or getting the financing of it, we have to be on our "A" game at all times. We fall into the traps that we set for ourselves or we simply let our customers beat us down. WE can control this. Yes...we can. We can team up with each other and represent collectively as professionals. Maybe we didn't go to school for 10 years or have a PhD in our title, but we are nonetheless a professional as any doctor or lawyer. Our customers and our communities look to us for expertise in a complex process. Now, more than ever.
I am writing this blog for myself, not necessarily for you. I am finding that the more I write my positive thoughts down, the more they start making sense and work towards becoming reality. I have a TON more to say about all of this, but I find myself becoming less patient and burning with the desire to "get-r-done" today. Yes, I am using a Larry The Cable-Guy voice inside my head :). Join me, my fellow professionals, lets take back our industry!!!
