Place importance upon persevering when all may be lost.

 

Had Henry Ford given up when he failed as a machinist's apprentice, then as an engineer who couldn't produce and then spending all of the first investor group's money without producing a car, he would not be a household name.

 

By thinking outside the box and constantly striving for improvement, he became a success story. Though, he had more impediments to overcome than we do in this modern world, we can surely get in the way of accomplishing our own goals.

 

Years ago, I remember when Todd Clark came into town with his family to pick up a Pot-bellied piglet born from Bacon and Miss Prissy, our back yard pets. The piglet managed to escape the carry-all and off she went into the high desert!

 

It took a good 45-minutes, plus some imagination to finally catch her with the help of neighbors and a Deputy Sheriff. Without being extremely diligent, she may have become lost, a casualty to wild animals and the outside elements.

 

Athena was safely delivered eventually and off they went back to Oregon to create some wonderful family memories.

 

Which reminds me...

Persevering in business means finding ways to move forward successfully. It also takes a team of individuals who are committed to doing their best and being the best they can be every work day to accomplish and meet all objectives. 

 

I am thankful to have such professionals who help me to become a better Realtor and to stretch the learning muscles. Without trusted affiliates, I could be lost like Athena, sans support and wandering aimlessly about.

 

Rob Grim at Inwest Title in St. George is one such professional. Always glad to answer his phone and return calls promptly.  Have a question? If he doesn't have the answer, he will get it! Though many transactions go rather smoothly, the tough ones are managed just as carefully. I have worked with Rob for over a decade and trust him with every aspect of my business and look forward to what 2019 will bring. Thanks Rob for all you do to make me look good too!

 

Every day brings a greater sense of confidence knowing that questions are answered and solutions to situations are handled quickly as we work together as a team to bring happy endings to those depending on us most, our clients!

 

If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. ~ Henry Ford

Hello Wanda, What a great blog of explaining things that can be with the help of others.  Henry Ford was on to something and it work but took time.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! - I just love how you weaved together these great stories. I was smiling as I kept reading. It was so interesting! You're a natural storyteller, which is an art! There's something so beautiful and lyrical how you put together words and make them come alive with characters that are real! Robert Grim sounds like a gem, a keeper, wise counsel, and friend. You are too!

Thank you so much Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP! I remember back when Todd called and said he was interested in getting a piglet because the family pup passed tragically. When the piglet escaped, I was in desperate need and begged the deputy to help. They are quick little ones! Rob is intelligent, engaging, dedicated to his profession and the kindest, sweetest person you'd ever meet!

Lots of twists in this one Michael Jacobs. Kind of like that little piglet when she set off into the desert squealing and at a quickened pace!

Glad you enjoyed this post Sheila Anderson. The piglet stayed indoors and learned how to ring a bell attached to the door to be let out. They made a set of stairs so she could get up on the couch and she'd lay by the fireplace during the winter a blanket to stay warm! She is a smart one.

Morning Wanda.

I remember decades ago a fellow law enforcement officer had a pet pig, that lived in his home. While time has gone, I'm sure the pig is no longer with him, he sure loved that animal.

I just saw that you commented on this post James Dray. Pigs are fantastic pets, are smart and clean (if not crowded). Bacon and Miss Prissy, our potbellied pigs lived to be 9 years old.
