The 12 Laws of Karma -- Great For Your Morning Cup of Coffee

I think there is not a person alive that has not found themselves off track at some point.

Maybe it happened once, and never again. Maybe it happened twice because you missed the first lesson.

Maybe, you get off track weekly. In the crazy profession of real estate, staying on track can be a challenge. Maybe you are blessed with so much business, your follow up calls to your Sphere or past clients get forgotten. Or you don't keep up with those market reports and blog posts like you should.

Being off track does not just happen in your professional life. It can be your personal life. Family, friends, a pet, the all can send us off track, or keep us on track. A close family member or loved one passes, a friend does a hurtful act that ends that relationship.

You can also be off track in your mind. All kinds of thoughts ( I like to call them my voices) are running around, and messing up the message you need. A positive message, filled with balance. Maybe you need time before your day gets off and running, to just align those tracks a bit better.

I think I found a great source to help with keeping on track and in balance.

And it the essence of the friendships I've found on Active Rain, I wanted to share. Enjoy.

Beautiful is the only description I can say right now. Balance is now always easy to achieve but something we strive towards and those "voices" come around all too often and get in one's way. I believe totally that the lessons we are to learn if we do not get/understand it the first time it will show up once again to give you an opportunity to try once more..  Thanks Again.

Kathy: I intend to watch it every day. I'm putting a note on my computer screen to remind me it is the first thing I do before anything else in the morning.

Mary: Being a Libra, let me tell you about being out of balance....

I think you are right about people in this business being likely to find themselves off track and out of focus.  I love the video.. watching it before I start my work day seems perfect.  A nice little reminder about... that intial toil before the reward may keep my nose to grindstone on my website updates

Compelling blog, It's important to think about "IT" before getting off track, there are some tracks com-backs are low probability, consequences of off track behavior may 'NOT" allow for too much of a come back. We need to stay vigilant to ethics and there's no very little to worry about..

I like your message Thom.  Being successful is dependent on having goals and staying focused.

Tom, I have a Libra daughter and she is something!  Libra's seek balance and she has the most difficult time finding it and then holding on to it.  She is learning though.  I am a Sag and I am all about balance and so many other things (like feeling the wind on my face and going as fast as I can, metaphorically of course), but lots of times I am way out there thinking of too many things and the only thing that brings me back down to earth is my Taurus Moon and a couple of other planets. I love astrology, can you tell?  Thanks again I loved the video.

Tom,  Great messages.  Getting side tracked and diverted is so easy today.  We all need some grounding.
