Day 8 - thankful for business

Real Estate Agent with Pacific Union International CA DRE# 01215160

autumn decorations, Cavallo Point, CAAs Thanksgiving nears and preparations get underway to enjoy Thanksgiving day with family and friends, I'm pulling back a few hours a day from business and spending a more time on family activities and plans.

That helps me realize just how thankful I am for my business. My last two listings have closed escrow and my sellers are off on new life adventures; my current batch of buyers are all happily settled in their new homes, and I'm starting with a new round of buyers. The cycle continues.

As I was re-reading the Team Charter I wrote several years ago, I was reminded that one of my goals when I became a Realtor® was: "We increase positive attitudes toward our profession through our actions."

That remains one of my guiding lights, and helps me weather the difficult times and appreciate the good ones, for which I am thankful.

You make me think of the times that I think "control what you say because it matters" when I really want to REACT to someone else behaving poorly.

Writing a Team Charter was a great exercise in clarifying the why I do what I do, Kathleen Daniels 

Hello Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint - it's interesting and helpful to review past goals, mission statements, visions, etc. It gets my mind back in the groove! I hope you're enjoying this special weekend.

So true,  Tammy Lankford, taking a step back and thinking before reacting has saved many a regret.

Thanks for reading my posts, Gita Bantwal - I enjoy yours, also.

I've enjoyed reading many of the gratitude posts, Debbie Reynolds - thanks for motivating us to write them. As my coaching guru used to say, "it's a beautiful life."

"We increase positive attitudes!" Now that's a motivational commitment that can't be beat! You're such a great person who continues to be an inspiration to me.

I hate to think that many people hold Realtors® in low regard - improving that mind set has been one of my guiding principles for these last 20 years, Patricia Feager
