Zoom in. Focus. Stay the course.

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

We are about one week into the new year and the excitement that comes with beginning at 1 again is clearly still in the air. The first few days, weeks, month always seem to be buzzing with activity, hopes, dreams, desires. Everyone is determined to follow through with their New Year's resolutions. 

One of the places where it's really evident is, the gym. 

I almost couldn't get a spot in my Saturday morning Barbell class. We were squeezed into the studio like sardines in a can. I felt myself getting upset about not having enough room, or not having my regular set of weights. But then I forced myself to shift the focus onto them. The resolution makers, the hopefuls, the determined .. good for them! For me it was just a regular Saturday, a routine. But for them it was the beginning of something new.

Zoom in and focus on your goals.I sincerely hope that they all will keep coming to the gym .. even if that means I will have to circle the parking lot for an empty spot or share a bench in the locker room or squeeze into the sauna. I sincerely hope that they won't start going MIA next month or the month after. I sincerely hope that they will keep making themselves a priority and schedule in that me-time firmly into their day, every day. They deserve it. We all do. 

I wish all of them and you the time and ability to zoom in and remember what is important. Take a moment or 2 every day, or week, or month to focus on your goals and hopes and dreams. 

Zoom in. Focus. And stay the course.

You've got this. 

P.S. Should your hopes and dreams and goals have to do with buying or selling a house in Silver Spring, MD and beyond this year, please give me a call. I would love to help you zoom in on your must-haves, focus on the big picture and take that perfect snapshot of you in front of your new home! 

Have an awesome, inspiring, happy, healthy, prosperous, and fulfilling 2019!

I am betting many of those people will be gone from the gym in a few weeks. That's normal January behavior!

I'm wishing you a wonderful 2019!

The New Year crowd is already starting to thin at my gym. Of course "go time" is 5am so there wasn't too many new faces to begin with.

That's hilarious. I was at the gym yesterday and couldn't believe all the people my self. For me I have to keep my business goals to succeed to reach my dreams.

It is the usual January picture Kat Palmiotti but am still hoping that some will stay the course! I am encouraging a couple of new people in one of the classes I go to.. it helps once you get to know people and see the same familiar faces every week. 

It is William Feela .. first step is to have a goal, second to have an idea how to accomplish it, and third, persevere. 

Already Doug Rogers ? 5 AM IS early.. it takes a lot of willpower to stick with an early morning routine. 

Same here Mike Baltierra .. so many goals and dreams and hopes! Healthy body, healthy mind though. It all goes hand-in-hand. Plus, I get asked a lot of Real Estate questions at the gym.
