Get After It: 🎼Change🎶

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

"There is no scarcity of opportunity
to make a living at what you love;
there's only scarcity of resolve
to make it happen."

~ Author, Wayne Dyer



Your action for today
is to ask yourself if you are making a living
at what you love. If you are,
take a few moments to enjoy it.
If you aren't, see if a change of attitude
will allow you to enjoy what you do.
If that doesn't work, set an intention to be doing something you love one year from today.


I can't stand bitter or complacent workers
at a place of business where I'm spending
my hard earned, (customer service based) income -
 no one is holding a gun to your head to work here.

Good morning Thomas - everything that you said is spot on.  If you are not passionate about what you do you won't succeed.

A person should find a way to make a living at something they enjoy. At that time, they will appreciate the days and not feel obligated to stay

I feel sorry for people who slog through life whining about their jobs and waiting for Friday night - but at the same time have no patience with them. Most could choose to do something else.

Hmm, the action for today is a tough one since I have never felt like any of my jobs have been completely enjoyable.  I would much rather be retired already, haha.

I know I had some jobs like that, but I created my dream career as a Professional Wedding DJ and I changed my attitude in Real Estate to make it fun - I used to hate real estate. :)

I love what I do because I'm a numbers, finance person.  But the part about getting clients get sold.  I'm 100% referral based as well and don't want to sell 100 homes a year, so for me, this is perfect!  Today - 2 new listing appointments for next week.  Goal accomplished!
