Nothing From Nothing Leaves NOTHING!

Real Estate Agent

One of my favorite keyboard/organ players Billy Preston used to sing a song titled Nothing From Nothing, Leaves Nothing.  In this day and age, it seems that there are always people who are looking for a magic pill. Something that will allow them to do nothing, but get something in return.  Even though Billy has passed on, the meaning of his song remains.  You must put in some effort in order to get some return.  You must try and try and try again.  Never give up until you reach your goal.  When you reach your goal set a new goal.  Never let anyone talk you out of your dream.  After is YOUR dream.

My final point of the day has to do with the title of Billy's album to the left.  Everyboy Likes Some Kind of Music.  As you are working towards your goal, remember that thought.  You can't satisfy everybody, but certainly there are some other people who enjoy your kind of (______fill in the blank).  Find those who want to buy what you are selling and concentrate on that group. 

My goal is to be the #1 Real Estate Consultant in Burlington County, NJ.  That is my goal.  I will continue until I reach that goal.  So the next time you hear Billy Preston singing "Nothing From Nothing Leaves Nothing".....think about your goal and the effort needed to reach that goal.

Good Luck.

Have a great day

Leander...keep the faith and your dream will come true and you are so right about the song.  Also one of my favorites.

Put in some other ways I've heard through the years:

Put the wood in the stove before demanding heat
As ye sow, so shall ye reap
It's worth the price
What you put in is what you get back

Best of luck becoming the BEST!

Great, now I have that song playing in my head all day!  I love that song and you make a good point.  My business plan needs 'adjustment' but the goals haven't changed.
