Monday Inspiration: Knowledge--A Wall of Fog ?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Pictured above is the ceiling/wall of fog over the Paradise Valley in the Los Padres National Forest. 

 

I recently came across the teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz.  Miguel Ángel Ruiz Macías, better known as Don Miguel Ruiz, is a Mexican author of Toltec spiritualist and neoshamanistic texts. Wikipedia

 

Humans believe so many lies because we aren't aware. We ignore the truth or we just don't see the truth. When we are educated, we accumulate a lot of knowledge, and all that knowledge is just like a wall of fog that doesn't allow us to perceive the truth, what really is.

Don Miguel Ruiz

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.

What a lovely photo!!! I am not familiar with Don Miguel Ruiz but hope you'll share more quotes from him. We forget that information is a tool...it's all about what you do with it.

A good quote paired up with a great photo. True, knowledge can be the barrier to perceiving the truth as we doubt every thing that our knowledge(limited or vast) says it can't be the real thing.

What a really neat photo that is Alexandra.  And, it offers up a little solace for the the high temps that we are enduring here in Sacramento currently.  We are slated to hit 105 on Thursday.

Morning Alexandra.

There are so many news outlets that spin a article in so many ways.  To know which one is telling the truth is difficult at best

What a beautiful photo, Alexandra. While I hated to drive through heavy fog when I lived in San Francisco, I loved seeing it from my apartment window over the Bay Bridge. Made me feel as if I was the only person in the world.

We have driven through fog many times, here is the mountains, in SF and in Napa.  The worst was on the road to the Alps from Milan Italy.  They had what they refer to nebbia blanca, or white fog.  We could barely see the back lights of cars 10 feet ahead of us...It took hours to get back to Milan...A

Nina Hollander We are not strangers to fog or its beauty, we have seen it everywhere we have lived.  The worst was on the road to the Italian Alps. We drove at 5 miles an hour.  A

HI Alexandra... somehow, I missed the fog everytime I've driven through the Alps and I'm happy for that. Navigating the streets of San Francisco was bad enough when you couldn't see past your nose.

Myrl Jeffcoat Thank you for the feature.  Sorry to hear that the temperatures have been so high in Sacramento.  I remember flying in to Sacramento in the winter from a ski trip in Utah.  When we landed to temperature was lower in Sacramento than when took off from Salt Lake...A

Leif Price my father was big of questioning all things I shared from school as a child, and to see the truth or prejudice of things.  That has been very useful in my life.  A

What a quote! I've not heard it before.  And yes, dense fog makes it nearly impossible at times to see our way to the truth.

Sometimes, you have to climb a little higher to get to the waterfall on the other side of the will of fog. :)
