Monday Inspiration: Thoughts on Peace & Tangerines!

We all pay homage or lip service to peace.  Peace begins in one's heart and in one's home. Here is a quote that expresses the importance of being at peace in the moment.

“Peace can exist only in the present moment. It is ridiculous to say “Wait until I finish this, then I will be free to live in peace.” What is “this”? A di­ploma, a job, a house, the payment of a debt? If you think that way, peace will never come. There is always another “this” that will follow the present one. If you are not living in peace at this moment, you will never be able to. If you truly want to be at peace, you must be at peace right now. Otherwise, there is only “the hope of peace some day.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Here is an easy way to practice mindfulness.  You can substitute any food item you desire.

“Each time you look at a tangerine, you can see deeply into it. You can see everything in the universe in one tangerine. When you peel it and smell it, it’s wonderful. You can take your time eating a tangerine and be very happy.”  Thich Nhat Hanh

 

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

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.

Hi Alexandra... since I'm not much of a fruit eater, don't know that this would "work" for me. But I totally agree that peace is not something earned at the end of whatever "journey," but something that comes from within and then radiates outwards.

Good morning Alexandra. I love the first quote and certainly understand Tangerines are not for me, but I get the analogy.

Happy Monday, Ron and Alexandra- this one reminds me of my sweet sister-in-law who loves to sit by herself at the end of the day and eat a tangerine or mandarin orange piece by piece. She is also very much at peace with her life.

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel - Being human, there are times we may be anxious, frustrated, and generally not at peace, that is the perfect time to step back, take a deep breath and close your eyes and take a moment to think of your happy place.

Hello again Alexandra. It isn't a question of liking. I am allergic to fruit so even seeing the picture impacts me.

I like that quote by Thich Nhat Hanh, Alexandra.  Too often folks speak in platitudes, that in reality lack substance.  Therein lies the rub!

Morning Alexandra.

I'm always at peace, rarely do I get out of that zone.  Just don't have the time to be otherwise.

Among other things...this post reminds me of my Parents...St. Nick always had a tangerine at the toe of my sock...my Mom called them "magic oranges" because they were so much easier to peel...and we think have their own distinct Appeal !
