When you find out you have touched the lives of others in a positive way it is such a FEEL GOOD moment
Sometimes you never know when you have had an impact on someone and when you find out you have, it just gives me the warm fuzzes. I have always loved helping, mentoring and encouraging other Realtors and people in general. Over the last 33 years most of my impact has been on other agents, since I have been in this crazy, exciting business of helping people buy and sell homes in the Katy TX, greater Houston area for so long.
Often you might go a long time (or never) without knowing that someone has benefited, learned or been inspired from something you said or did, maybe even many years ago. Recently my partner and great niece Sandie, came over after an MCE class. In talking about our company, business, life in general, Sandie off handily mentioned, "Oh by the way, one of the other Realtors in the class said to tell you hello. She said you were her inspiration to get into and stay in Real Estate and really wanted to say "Thank You"! Sandie did not realize how wonderful that made me feel, or maybe she did. When she realized the extent of what it meant to me, she said, "Aunt Liz I hear it all the time you have helped a lot of people". Wow, pretty cool, you just never know when your path will cross with someone you can help or that can help you.
The old saying about "When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear" is oh so true. So remember to spread the love, make someone feel great today, make someone smile today, give someone encouragement today...it takes so little and it can mean so much. It also will come back to you ten fold, it certainly has for me...especially here on Active Rain!
Then I received this e-mail today,
My name iBernier Bernier and I am a newly licensed agent and a new member of the MFO 2 on 1 coaching(1st goal is to be upgraded to 1 on 1 ASAP). I have heard about you mentioned many times in different MFO recorded events and just read your active rain Blog. You are very inspiring and I just wanted to thank you. Have a great year and I'll see you at the top and hopefully we can meet at a future MFO event in the future.
