If we pay attention the field of real estate is a great classroom for learning many things about life. You are constantly learning things about people and situations as you interact with them. The lessons never end. Some agents learn the lessons quickly and don't make the same mistakes again. Others stay in an endless loop repeating the same situation over and over again. It's not WHAT happens to you. "IT" happens to all of us to paraphrase that first word. It is how you respond to situations that is the difference maker. Some take personal responsibility and move on. Others like to blame others or bad luck for their circumstances.
Whether life is good or bad for you at the moment, know that in an instant it can flip the other way. That is not the point. The point is what lesson is being provided to you on your very own unique path through life? And more important are you learning it?
