Yes, my mother Judy Carr taught me to be thankful when I experienced problems or obstacles in real estate. She always said, "What we get paid for is our ability to help solve people's problems."
When you help solve someone's problem, you momentarily become a hero-at least for that moment. It's a great time to thank them for choosing you to help them with their business-and ask who the next person they know also could benefit from your real estate problem-solving skills.
Fortune Cookie Wisdom
Do you look for difficulty in every opportunity or opportunity in every difficulty? This is what my fortune cookie said tonight after my Chinese dinner.
Whichever way we look at a situation determines much of the outcome.
You can choose to look at situations
as challenges and to figure ways to solve the problems and make something good come of it.
You can choose to not let it get you down and to realize that tomorrow will be a brighter day.
You can choose to make lemonade out of the lemons and appreciate the fact that lemonade can be a refreshing change.
You can choose to think that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and the next time it won’t affect you as negatively.
You can choose to not dwell on the why me’s and just accept it and say why not and get on with it.
Fortune Cookie Wisdom can be sometimes fun or it can give you something to think and reflect on. Do you look for difficulty in every opportunity or opportunity in every difficulty?
Fellow ActiveRain member Lou Ludwig has written some very uplifting words on the subject and they are worth reading if you need encouragement.
Look for the opportunity in every difficulty.
The difference between an ostacle and a difficulty.
