Take Action: Within Yourself

By
Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

 

“Character is a quality that embodies

many important traits,

such as integrity, courage, perseverance,

confidence and wisdom.

Unlike your fingerprints that you are born with

and can't change, character is something

 that you create within yourself

and must take

responsibility for changing.”

 

~ Jim Rohn

 

Thomas J Nelson REALTOR

 

Your action for today

is to reflect on a time

when you did the right thing

and one where you didn't.

Take time to notice the difference

and how you felt at both times.

 

The difference can be inner-peace vs. inner-guilt.

The pain of letting myself down-of eroding my character,

regardless if I "could have gotten away with it"

is not one I choose to self inflict anymore.

That for me came with age. 

It doesn't matter who sees it, 

I have to smile at the mirror

and sleep soundly on my pillow.

 

Design an extraordinary Day!

We started our day with a meditation, and then set our intentions to make it a wonderful day, for ourselves, and others.  It's been a great Saturday. D

Hi Thomas- I love this. And I think it's good for us to reflect on times when our actions have been less than what we hope from ourselves.

Thomas,

 

Your character alone can point your life or career either in the right direction or the wrong direction.  You can't camouflage it either.  People will feel and see right through it.  Great post man!

Chris Ivy so true. I always share with my newer agent associates that ask me about my 100% Working By Referral business, you have to believe in building relationships, like people and want to serve them first, you second. Otherwise it is a disingenuous ploy and they see right through it. Thank you for popping by my post!

I have learned more about myself, and who I really am (not who I was told to be) as I've aged.  And I am happy with the real me....  

A wonderful thought-provoking post!

Kat Palmiotti then you are truly blessed. Good for you and I'm happy for you.

Happiliy, I can share that feeling with you. The older I get, the more I know, like and trust who I am, and I'm proud that the trail I blaze is mine. It flew in the face of who I was expected to be but, no regrets. It's A Good Life.

Reflecting back at the end of the day is useful--see what you accomplished, little surprises, good news, a great lead, tasty meal, etc.
