How Do You Spell Success? A Thought Provoking Question

By
Mortgage and Lending with AMEC Home Loans | NMLS# 150953 NMLS 274839

Happy Friday! I just love this thought and I hear it more and more these days from both sides. A day does not go by with out hearing the jingle from that well known radio station WFMW or WIIFM (What's in it For Me).

"Successful people are always looking for opportunities
to help others. Unsuccessful people are always
asking, 'What's in it for me?'"

by Brian Tracy, author, speaker, consultant

All of the money you'll ever make in your entire life currently belongs to someone else. You can ask for it; you can beg for it, you can even trick someone into giving it to you. But you'll never get it UNLESS you give them something of value that they want or something they need. The second you help them, they'll gladly open their wallets and give freely.

Make it a Fabulous Friday!

I try to give my best everyday.  I love helping people, and I think they understand that it is genuine.  If it isn't, one can tell.  But if you really think about it, we are all in this together.  We need every individual's talent.  Find yours and share it!!!!

Hi Margaret - Thanks for comment on the name - I should really thank Mom! Happy 13th to you also. Some people dislike this day, however I usually have a great 13th - Perhaps that is because I was born on the 13th.... I updated the radio station so it reads WFME and WIIFM - big smile  - I aim to please..... take care and have a great day!

Gwen - Success comes in many shapes and forms.  Some define it in financial terms while others feel the success in the deeds they do.  Overall, I believe we define success in measures of our contributions we make in life as opposed to what we take out of it.

Gwenn, I get into conversations with seller clients all the time, when they think that should be able to negotiate a commission before they even list. I remind them they are setting the bar too low and will be getting only what they are willing to pay for. If another Realtor wants to do it for less give them a try, and I guarantee you'll get less.

Great post.  If you are willing to put yourself out there and risk for others, someone will return the favor.  The best situation is when both parties give, receive and pay it forward.

Larry: You are giving and we need to reconnect. What was I thinking!!!

Tony: Yes, I like simple too. Like all the little things we learned in Kindergarten!

Ian: I amazes me that we focusing on giving, things seem to fall in place.

Jon: I agree, thanks for the great reply.

Tina: Doesn't giving make us feel great?

Hi Margaret - April 13th - I have had several Friday the 13th Birthdays!

Steve: Amen - Interesting how so many look for cheap and do no realize that you get what you give. In this case CHEAP!

Shiela: Wouldn't it be great to have two parties on opposite side with that attitude - We would all be rich in life.

Peggy: Short and Sweet. Just like you. I mean the sweet part - Are you short too????? big smile

Hi Nathan - "Life is like a combination lock; your job is to find the right numbers, in the right order, so you can have anything you want". Perhaps you should look inward and revamp your combination. Tracy is a great source and just one of many . . . take it or leave it and remember "To Think is to Create" - Your thoughts are things and everyone can see them..... Make it a great one and thanks for stopping by.....
