Monday Musings: Taking Time to Notice the Magic That Surrounds Us!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

This past week we have been taking time to walk on the beach.  There have been many new developments in our lives and a flurry of activity from all corners of the globe. Times like these are crackling with potential and excitement.  Walking on the beach gives us the capacity to expand our thinking and sharpen our senses.  We regain our perspective and our inner calm.  And we begin again...

 

"The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper." W.B.Yeats

 

“Around us, life bursts with miracles--a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles.

 

Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings.

 

When we are tired and feel discouraged by life's daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.” 
― Thich Nhat Hahn

 

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.

The writing of Thich Nhat Hahn always offer up inspiration!    I especially like his last line, "When we are tired and feel discouraged by life's daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel

There are words of wisdom hidden in the quote from Thich Nhat Hahn.  We must remember to always be in the moment so that we can see these little miracles that we might otherwise miss.

Kathy Streib all the Houston moments you have had are magical and miracles too.  I think if we focus on that, we would see so much more, and know that all our wishes are viable. A

Mimi Foster there are so many beautiful areas in Colorado.  I have always enjoyed driving through especially in the fall.  I do know you had snow as Ron's side of the family moved there from California..A

Myrl Jeffcoat yes, that is so true.  We have been delighted by one of our succulents called copper spoon.  Ron swears it is growing taller daily.  Just for fun we made a mark on the wall near it, and sure enough it is growing daily! Magic abounds as do miracles. A

As you walk the beach I love the woods and trails. It just allows me to calm donw and take a deep breath and reset myself. This is a busy week as I get ready to head to Europe for a week at the end. My nephew and girlfriend are coming to town, and a client invited me for drinks as well as getting ready for the trip. Lots to do. Breathe!

What a beautiful rose, Alexandra. The only word I can think of is luscious! Great list of quotes today. My favorite:

I'm thrilled for you both with all the excitement in the air. I love the snap, crackle, and pop of opportunities.  Having the beach nearby to ground, and yet inspire, is a huge gift that I know you don't take for granted.

Hello Ron and Alexandra Seigel, it is up to us to create a world that makes us jump with excitement and happiness.  Clearly, you have done exactly that. I drive over two hours as often as I can to walk on the beach, clear my head and just take it all in, so worth the drive. I love the color of the rose you've posted.

Beth Atalay the beach was one of the reasons we moved to Santa Barbara.  When we lived in Napa, it was a huge trek and no real beach to walk on.  I missed having it "on demand" as Ron says.  We can walk over in 10 minutes, or drive and be there in 3 minutes.  I do agree it is worth the drive no matter how long.  That rose is one three bushes that live on our deck and make us smile.  A

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD as the ideas expand so do the opportunities, and it is a matter of doing it deliberately, slowly, and really exceptionally well by defining our niche.  A
