Monday Musings: Soothing Words!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Words to soothe the spirit today:

 

Until there is peace between religions, there can be no peace in the world.

 

In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change.

 

An oak tree is an oak tree. That is all it has to do. If an oak tree is less than an oak tree, then we are all in trouble.

 

For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.

 

The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

Thich Nhat Hanh

 

Ron and I wish you 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.

Will Hamm I know you do, and we start with counting our blessings, and "be kind whenever possible, it is always possible." This quote is from the Dalai Lama

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD thank you for your comment, as Dickens said, "these are the best of times and these are the worst of times!"  What is wonderful is that it is bringing forth amazing teachers, like the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, and so many others.  As I write this, Ron is talking to another amazing individual that we were connected to.  A

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel,

The last quote is spot on.  Giving one's attention shows that person respect. It is a true gift.

"Until there is peace between religions, there can be no peace in the world."

 That one is really important to understand.  Most all wars have been holy wars when you stop to think about it!

Lise Howe not the easiest thing to do.  In the Plum Village were devotees of Thich Nhat Hanh go, there is a gong that strikes every 15 minutes to remind all to stop for a mindful moment.  A

While I love and agree with all of the quotes you shared, Alexandra, this one makes my heart smile...
