Is Life Really Good??? Life IS Good!

Real Estate Agent with Envision Real Estate Group, LLC.

Sometimes Life just stinks!  Your business is suffering.  Your personal life is in the toilet.  You debate whether to fill up your gas tank or feed your family.  Is Life Really Good???  Yes it is!!!

Your life/business being good or bad begins with YOU!  It is all how you look at it.  Gas is too high!  Well you could be walking 15 miles in 95 degree heat.  Food prices are outrageous!  You could be going to bed starving every night.  The roof is leaking!  You could be living on the streets.  It's your outlook, perception, it's just how YOU look at it.  Life is Good!

Start with you:  Get up off the ground and dust the dirt off your butt.  Change your attitude and begin thinking positive.  Wake up and say "Life is Good" or whatever your motivational saying that exists at the very core of your soul.

  • Believe IT:   You've got to believe the positive nourishment you're feeding your body, or else it's all null and void.  It simply won't work.  You can't fool yourself.  If you don't believe in yourself and your own philosophy, how can you expect anyone else to?  If you buy into "The Market is Horrible."  You will begin to believe it and your daily actions will be reflective of a slowing market.  Life is Good!
  • Practice IT:  You've got to believe the positive nourishment you're feeding your body, or else it's all null and void.  You've got to Practice at being more positive.  It's not going to happen over night.  Yes, you can be conditioned to be negative, and so many are.  Tiger Woods is by far one of the best Golfers the world has ever seen.  Yes, he practices!  Do you think he goes up and thinks I can't make this shot???  Heck no!!!  Life is Good!
  • Embrace IT:  You've got to "talk the talk, and walk the walk!"  Get away from the negative people, news, or anything that does not have a positive influence on your life.  If someone's down, lift them up.  You may need that encouragement someday.  Becoming more positive will attract more positive things into your life.  Smile!!!  You will begin to see positive things in your life and your business.  Life is Good!
  • Take IT home:  You've spent the entire day being positive, and encouraging to everyone else.  You're tired, drained, and you can't give anymore.  Wrong.  Take it home!  Keep the most powerful of your positive vibes for your "Loved One's!"  They deserve it the most.  They are there for you through the good and the bad.  Don't cheat them!!  Chat, play, love, and laugh until your heart is filled with joy.  It will be much easier to jump start tomorrow.  Life is Good! Good Times

How does this apply to Real Estate?  Simple, if your attitude and outlook is negative, then so will your business.  If you're a seller and you don't listen to your professional and make the positive changes to make your home sell, then your home will just sit on the market.  If you're a buyer and you think you'll never find the right home, or you're always looking for something wrong in a house, you won't be able to enjoy the benefits of owning your own home.  Your life and perception are what you make it!  Make it a positive one!

Life is good my friends!!!  Now go out and live it to it's fullest.  "Shoot for the moon!  Because even if you miss, you are still among the STARS!!!"

Life is GREAT!!!!  What an excellent post.  Life is truly what we tell ourselves and our attitude about things.  Being a "half full person is a lot better than being a half empty person."     Thanks for sharing such an uplifting post.

 Very well said Ray. Where some people see impossible situations, others see a challenging opportunity. Attitude and outlook makes a BIG difference. You said it so well, thx!

Ray,  Excellent post!  You are right on.  I'm totally on the "positive page" with you.  Just the other day someone asked me how were things going for me with this market.  I said "I live in a free country with unparalled privileges.  I have my health, have sound mind and body, my son and his family are well and thriving, I have a good life.  Things have changed, people adjust.  I look at all the good in my life, not moan about the challenges."  My reality is what I choose it to be.  I choose to enjoy a good life.  Have a great day!!
