2 Items That Can Help You Find Success... SERIOUSLY - REALLY

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty

The first way for finding success is being hungry for it.

If you have ever experienced overwhelming success, you should be able to connect with this idea that you were hungry for the success for you to keep going to get where you wanted to be.

The other is resilience

November 4th, I competed in the District 3 Humorous Speech Contest

I was one of nine finalists out of 4,500 Toastmasters in Arizona, and to get to the contest a two-hour drive, I laid on my right side in the back seat of the car while my wife drove. Also, I returned home to Phoenix the same way, because of the back pain I was experiencing.

My humorous speech conveys how I have been in the ER 15 times of three different hospitals in the past five years.

The words of the speech were delivered in a totally humorous fashion, yet without realizing it I have experienced much more medical or physical difficulties than average people.

But I never stopped and thought about my issues, but even had my strongest year as a Realtor last year out of 38 years!

When I returned to my seat after my seven minutes 17 second speech, and later taking 2nd place.

A gentleman sitting at the table next to us, leaned over and told me: “I have never met a person with as much resilience as you.” That is words that I will remember the rest of my life.

Over the next few days those words have helped me recognize I am more of a champion than I have realized.

My coach told me as I practiced that speech one last time just 20 minutes before the contest, to walk up on that stage forget about my pain in my back and deliver the speech!

And I did what Tom Otstot told me to do.

Dan- perseverance should be your middle name. Many would have crumbled but you kept putting that one foot forward.
