Monday Inspiration: The Source of Kindness...

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

We often speak of practicing kindness with everyone you meet, and we have quoted the Dalai Lama's "be kind whenever possible, it is always possible!"  We think that we should also apply this message to ourselves, to be kind to ourselves as well. 

 

We liked these Thich Nhat Hanh's quotes on the subject:

 

"Do not judge yourself harshly as a failure.  Just start again.  Every day is an opportunity for a new beginning you can begin anew every moment."

 

"To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself."

 

"Until we are able to love and take care of ourselves, we cannot be of much help to others.

And we say, "be kind to yourself whenever possibleIt all begins with you.  You are the source of kindness."

 

Happy Monday, we wish 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.

Nina Hollander As we are writing our book, we are explaining our way and our philosophy as well as our influencers.  Whether it is the Tao or the Vedas the message remains similar.  The words change but the meaning remains. A

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I took this photo by an industrial building.  The irises were blooming like crazy everywhere we looked in France.  Good for you for taking time out of your day and taking stock, and whenever we feel the least bit out of sorts, we remind ourselves of this quote from Sam Harris,

“There are at least a billion people on Earth at this moment who would consider their prayers answered if they could trade places with you.”
