Tiger Woods wins again! Persistance though pain...

Real Estate Agent with Classic Realty, Inc.

I have never played a game of golf in my life, but I enjoy keeping up with a guy like Tiger Woods.  Tiger was seeking his 14th majors win, all the while playing on a bad knee where he had surgery about two months ago.  This is an incredible example to me of persistence even when the going gets tough! It took him 91 holes to win, but he finally did! 

In real estate, here in Bryan and College Station TX, I find some parallels.  To be successful, I have to have persistance and patience!  Make that extra phone call, stay in touch with my sellers, call my buyers to see what they need, call the title companies, call the loan officers, call for inspections, call the surveyor, etc...

One deal that I am working on has been having some issues, so, I have had to make probably 35 or 40 phone calls/emails to get it to closing.  Lord willing, it is looking more and more like it will go though tomorrow.  Praise the Lord!

One of these days I will have to go play a round or two of golf!...

Jonathan, it sounds like you have the persistence to get the job done. Tiger does have that mental toughness, there is no doubt about that.

He is a great player but I turned it off because I got sick of listening to Jonny Miller talk about it and ther was more footage of his knee than there was of people playing golf.
