Put a Stake in the Ground.....

Real Estate Agent with McDaniel Callahan


"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity.
The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty"---Winston Churchill

Think about the impact those two short sentences have on your life......  Don't kid yourself... 

In times like this, we need to examine how we think.  Your dominate thoughts controls your feelings, actions and future.  Icky thinking....doom and gloom....you focus on the bad—the whata, shoulda, couldas.  Just say "no more".. 25 times or move your eyes side-to-side 25 times (It works. Trust me.) Give yourself permission to refocus on the good... it works.. try it... Really.....

Instead,  think about "what it would look like" if we could do this or that.... take the time to take apart your problem... Isolate your blockages.... Ask better questions...."What can be altered?"  Things that can't, look for new solutions.

The person who gives-up finding solutions is dead..... You're still above ground and you can still change the outcome...Solutions are everywhere... Collaborate and be Transparent. Ask better questions of yourself....

Put another stake in the ground....Today...I will look for opportunities in every difficulty....

P.S.  If you need someone to give a "pep talk" to your business or community group,  email or call me.... Oh, by the way, we're in the real  estate business.... If you have someone you know who should be buying or selling, we would like to meet them..... It's a great time to BUY real estate.....

Attitude is everything.  I tell my husband about the deals I am working on and being a pessimist (he calls himself a realist) he says he would rather wait until I close them before listening.  I commented that if I looked at every possibility that way, I'd never close anything!  I'd also be in another business since real estate is for optimistic people only.

Terry, I like Winston Churchill's quotation.;

Terry... Actions are usually a result of your attitude.. positive attitude will lead to positive actions...

Btw... I have couple of posts about inserting links, as well as photos... take a look, I think they'll be some help.
