DON'T BE THE STORM!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Mike McCann - Broker, Farmland Broker-Auctioneer Serving Rural Nebraska

  "It Takes One Person To Change The Energy Of The Whole Room!  Don't Be The Storm"

When you walk into the room are you the storm or the sunshine...the rain or the rainbow?

Do you bring positive energy into the room or do you suck the positive vibes right out of the air without even knowing?

Be honest here.

I have caught myself a few times in the recent past being the storm...and I would really rather be the sunshine. I am working hard to be the sunshine...the rainbow instead of the rain. Some times I fail but I am working on it...

The quote above is close to a quote I saw a long time ago.   

I took the above phote north of Kearney, NE a few years ago during a major storm.. It shows the power of Mother Nature. (Yes I did use a bit of solarization on it to bring out the storm better)

We all have power like that in our personal and professional lives...and we all need to use it correctly and to our advantage in a positive way.

If we constantly complain or put down others...even those that deserve it...soon people will shy away from you (or me). An unhappy person is usually a negative person. I try to avoid them. 

Of course we all have lost the client that we had worked long and hard with to someone else...or the road to work has been under construction for years...or the weather is bad...or the person next to you is less than honorable...or a million other downer things...so vent quickly and get on with life and work.

And smile and bring positive energy into the room...or call...or text...or tweet...or email. SMILE!

Why? Because for every downer there are a dozen positives to go after...so simply do not dwell on the negatives too long. Learn from the negatives and use them to your advantage in the future...but don't keep complaining about it...because it is old news!

My 21 year old daughter told me a while back... "you are sucking the positivity right out of me"... and I have learned from that quote... and have decided I do not like being the Storm...

I would rather be the Rainbow!!  (I think my daughter, Jaime, will like that a lot better♥)Be The Rainbow After the Storm Mike McCann Nebraska Farm Broker

Hi Sheila Anderson 

In another life I would like to be a photographer.  I know just enough to get a nice photo every 50 or so...but like most people...I still have the so-so photos cluttering my computer.

Thank you for stopping by and making the nice comment about the photos!  

Have a great 2017!

Great photos and a wonderful concept.  Too often we live in the storm instead of being the sunshine.  Thanks for the encouragement.

Good morning Mike McCann - Nebraska Farm Land Broker , Just like the pilot of an airplane, I would rather fly over or around the storm I see before me. I know I don't like to be around negative or complaining people, so I avoid them, so why would I want to be the one everyone tries to avoid.  I Too, would rather be the rainbow.
