What kind of footsteps in the sand are you leaving?
Are they ones that will make a lasting impression, or will they be forgotten with the tide?
As I think back there are many who have left a lasting impression with me..
My Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Devries- Perhaps it was the small candy she left on my loop rug after nap-time. Truthfully, it was her kindness I remember.
It is this kindness I think of when I am working with my clients, helping them through the various steps of the selling/or purchasing of a home.
Mrs Goodman- For opening up my mind as I learned to read. Dick and Jane is a distant memory. Yes, I am that old! The patience she had as we would slowly form our words was amazing.
Patience in negotiating, knowing when it is best to think things through rather than making a quick decision. Having the patience to listen without speaking.
Coach Baker- He taught myself and thousands of students about inspiration and Giving 110%. It was his legendary motto! People would chant "110"at sporting events. He also taught drivers ed and I still catch myself repeating Keys, doors seatbelts, mirrors, headcheck etc. It was always about attitude,positive attitude!
I really think about this as I am crawling under the house to make sure everything was done to the satisfaction of my client. Giving that 110% is what I do.
Now these are just a few to begin with..
Who has inspired you? Who has left a lasting impression
