Bull's Eye

To hit a bullseye, you must throw the dart.

I attended the Annual GBBR Fair a few years ago, and one of the booths had a dart contest. There was a bit of a crowd, and they summoned me over to try my hand.  I said, "no problem, I can do that."

I threw the dart and it landed BULLSEYE ! 

Here is the actual photo to prove it.

When asked to try something new I did it confidently and without hesitation. After all, what did I have to lose? 

Everyone watching broke out in applause.

Asked if I could I do it again?

My answer was, Does it matter?

 

Unafraid to take a chance with unusual "impossible to sell" listings. I frequently hit a bullseye and get them sold when others are doubtful.

For a shot at the bullseye, you have to be willing to, at least, throw the dart.

Aura, it was the perfect answer—no need to prove what had just been done.

Hey Margaret you hit it on the bulls eye with this post! Love it! For years I was involved in Leadership Training. One of our sayings was - Make it Happen.  It never surprised me that when given an opportunity big or small they all took it on, knowing and believing in themselves and their team and they -  Made it Happen.  There never was another choice.  Going on to this day and thankfully that is the world I met Gary in!! We're of the same mind set!  Very fun world!!

I'm pretty impressed! Great life lesson here - you'll never hit the bull's eye if you don't throw the dart!

Many years ago, I entered a hatched throwing contest with a bunch of other dads that had never thrown a hatched.  When it was my turn, I stepped up and threw a couple bullseyes.  I was the most shocked guy there.  I won!  No trophies, but it was fun.  If you do not try, you can never win.

Years ago, I went target shooting with a couple family members.  It wasn't my favorite thing to do because I don't like the loud sound of guns when they go off.  Sure enough, when it came my turn to shoot.  My husband stood behind me and guided my shoulders, and told me how to line up the target in the sights, etc.  I found the bullseye in the scope, closed my eyes and fired.  My husband began to throw a fit because I closed my eyes.  I explained I did it as precaution against the sound.  He said, "Never close your eyes when you fire."  I asked if we could see how I did.  We walked toward the target.  It was a perfect bullseye!

When it comes to a bull's eye on a house listing, it certainly doesn't hurt to have a lot of experience, either
