Monday Musings: Inspiring Thoughts on The Art of Living

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

After a relaxing sunny weekend of gardening, reading and lollygagging, we greet a new week.  Our week promises to be busy with some business traveling involved.  Here are some of our favorite quotes that caught our attention today and inspired us.

 

“The art of living… is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past on the other. It consists in being sensitive to each moment, in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive.” 

Alan Watts

 

“Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying  something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.”

Dalai Lama

 

“It is possible to live happily in the here and now. So many conditions of happiness are available—more than enough for you to be happy right now. You don't have to run into the future in order to get more."

Thich Nhat Hanh

 

“People suffer because they are caught in their views. As soon as we release those views, we are free and we don't suffer anymore.”

 Thich Nhat Hanh

 

"Compassion is not a religious business, it is a human business, it is not a luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival."

Dalai Lama

 

 
                           “As you breathe in, cherish yourself.
                          As you breathe out, cherish all Beings.”
                                                  Dalia Lama
 
 
 
Wishing you all a great week ahead.

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

Great quotes, Alexandra. People too often forget the power of staying silent. The Dalai Lama had it right...

“Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying  something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.”

HI Ron and Alexandra Seigel

"Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.” Dalai Lama

 

If we don't have the right words to say, we should stay silent. Sometimes that is more powerful.
