Monday Morning Wake-Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration & Direction for the Week Ahead
The Winner Is… YOU!
Good morning. Last night, many of us watched the Academy Awards. A fun night where we all gather together, guessing who the winners will be. We all have our own opinion as to who will win and, if you’re like me, we don’t necessarily pick the winners. But that’s OK, because we all have our own definition of excellence.
Do you need to be a movie star, director or writer to achieve that level of success? Absolutely not! Vince Lombardi said, “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”
One of my favorite awards is “Teacher of the Year,” presented to teachers who display an extraordinary commitment to inspiring children of all backgrounds and abilities and making a positive difference in their lives.
What will it take for you to have an extraordinary real estate career? What level of service is needed for you to be nominated for an “Oscar” in real estate? Don’t wait for awards season to put those ideas into action. It’s ACTION that determines your destiny. What’s it going to be?
Something to Think About
Not everyone wants an Oscar in real estate, but what would it take? Focus, desire, skill development, practice, the willingness to do what it takes, tenacity and a mindset that says, “You Can Do It!” These are the same traits needed to achieve greatness in any field of endeavor.
The predictions are for a strong spring market. What can you do to set yourself apart from the competition? Make a list, and start checking it off.
