Exhaustion.

Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead.

Exhaustion.
It’s been a great, but very busy year so far and everyone is talking about how they are feeling.  Are you exhausted? The belief that taking time off will cause everything to fall apart is not only unhealthy, it’s not true. Life goes on when you slow down and take time for you. If you don’t take time off, your body eventually will put its foot down and make you slow down. Bodies do it all the time. Stress is a leading cause of cancer, heart attacks, liver failure, grouchiness and a sudden lack of breath. Aside from the health issues, taking time to do the things that inspire you, should be a priority because that’s why we work so hard. So that we can enjoy life and those in our life. This is not a luxury reserved for the people who are smarter, richer, or less bogged down than you are. It’s a luxury reserved for people who take the time to figure it out and choose to design a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Something to Think About
What’s the point of making lots of money and saving it until we are 70+ and finally have “time”? No one knows how much time they will have, or what the quality of life will be when we finally determine that we “have the time” to slow down and enjoy the fruits of our labor. Think how silly that sounds. If you are too old to work, how much pleasure will you have playing and traveling? What is more important than you and those you care about?

Words of Wisdom
Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour. – Walt Whitman

We are always getting ready to live but never living. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. – John Lennon

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. – Henry David Thoreau

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it. – Thich Nhat Hanh

What is Your True Calling?

Monday Morning Wake Up Call:

Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead

What is Your True Calling?
While there are many people who have always known what they were going to do and what they were destined to do, the majority of people spend most of their life looking for that one thing that they are supposed to do. Do yourself a favor and let yourself off the hook if you haven’t figured out that one “big thing”. Instead, start feeling good about the fact that you’ll probably fulfill several callings throughout your life.  If you think about it, it makes more sense that we evolve with age, right?  When I think about who I was in my twenties, compared to who I am today, I can’t imagine my life without all those stages of growth and development. I evolved into who I am and that is who I am supposed to be. I responded to what resonated with me at each bend in the road and hit a few roadblocks, but they always provided a few and rewarding path. Follow what feels good in the moment. Follow your intuition and it will lead you through a most excellent life!

Something to Think About:
Perhaps it’s not about discovering that “one thing” for everyone but knowing when to move on to another thing when you are no longer feeling challenged, interested or engaged.  I think we all know when we are on the right path, but what happens when that path suddenly turns into a fork in the road?

Weekly Challenge:
If you know someone who is feeling bored with their life, help them to find a new path. Perhaps take a new agent under your wing and share some valuable insights. When we help others, we create a lift in our own lives and often spark a connection to our calling.

Words of Wisdom
The best way to ensure you achieve the greatest satisfaction out of life is to behave intentionally. – Deborah Day

The purpose of life is a life of purpose. – Robert Bryne

The purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better. – Robert F. Kennedy

You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously. – Steve Maraboli

The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for. – Fyodor Dostoyevsky

RE/MAX Founders Quotes from R4

Inaugural Founders Award Recipients Share Their Best Advice for Success

The idea of RE/MAX came to Dave Liniger in Denver 45 years ago. The execution of that idea, however, was a collaborative effort of spirited entrepreneurs who believed in the vision of what RE/MAX could become.

Many extraordinary RE/MAX pioneers played critical roles in the early survival, eventual growth and continued success of the network. During the R4 Opening General Session, Liniger honored four of them – Dennis Curtin, Frank Polzler, Walter Schneider, and Gail Liniger – with the inaugural Founders Award.

Host Brian Buffini asked each of them for the key to their success.

“The belief that you can change somebody’s life. And that’s exactly what real estate people do in their communities. I believe that’s the key.” – Dennis Curtin, President, RE/MAX Mid-States & Dixie

“Give unconditionally. When you give, you get it back in spades.” – Walter Schneider, President and Co-Founder, RE/MAX INTEGRA

“Never give up. Keep selling.” – Frank Polzler, Chairman and Co-Founder, RE/MAX INTEGRA

Gail Liniger offered her gratitude to the over-115,000 RE/MAX Affiliates in the network. “Thank you for all you do for RE/MAX and helping to make it the No. 1 real estate network in the world.”

Dave Liniger also offered words of wisdom.

“Fall in love with what you do, because if you’re in love with what you do, you never go to work. It’s a passion. Being in love with something, you work forever to make it better.”

Forgive Yourself!

Monday Morning Wake Up Call:

Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead

Forgive Yourself!
Today’s message is a very important one, and it’s one that we all need to embrace. Everyone messes up at some point, some more than others. If you have messed up in the past, there’s a good chance you will mess up again because humans are born with the ability to make spectacular mistakes! Dragging around guilt and self-criticism is not healthy and utterly pointless. You won’t be a better person who never messes up again for feeling guilty or bad about yourself, but you will rob yourself of your ability to bounce back.

Guilt, shame, and self-criticism are some of the most destructive forces in your life, which is why forgiving yourself is one of the most powerful things you can do.

An easy way to let go of something that you feel badly about is to try this simple exercise. Repeat the following: “Holding onto my bad feelings about this does nothing but harm me, and others I care about. It’s preventing me from enjoying my life fully. I am an awesome person. I choose to enjoy my life and I choose to let this go.” Start each day by repeating this phrase until you feel free of the guilt or bad feeling.

It might take a week, or a month or a year, but at some point, you will let go of things that still haunt you from your past.

Something to Think About
We all make mistakes. It’s how you handle it that makes all the difference.

Weekly Challenge
Think of something that you are carrying around and let it go!

Words of Wisdom
“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” – Oscar Wilde

“The truth is unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.” – Steve Maraboli

“One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory.” – Rita Mae Brown

“True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience.” – Oprah Winfrey

Trust your Intuition

Monday Morning Wake Up Call:
Your Motivation, Inspiration, & Direction for the Week Ahead

Trust your Intuition
Did you ever stop to think about how birds use their intuition to navigate their way to breeding grounds halfway across the world? Deer, rabbits, and other prey use their intuition to avoid running into predators. The average human, on the other hand, will take the advice of a total stranger, or the person who sits at the desk next to them instead of doing what they know, deep down inside, is the right or best thing. How many times have you thought, in hindsight, I knew I should have listened to my gut?

Every one of us has an incredible inner guidance that we can use whenever we need it.  When there is an important decision to make, don’t run around asking everyone what you should do. Instead, find a quiet place and give yourself time to feel, think, and contemplate. You have all the answers inside of you. Practice sharpening your intuition, take the time to strengthen your connection to your own inner voice, and trust that you know what’s best for you. The more centered and tuned-in you are, the mightier you will be!

Something to Think About
A thinking mind is an awesome tool that’s meant to be used, but it pales in comparison to that inner voice that you have.  Animals have always relied solely in their instincts. They don’t need to know why, they just do what they know is right, based on their instincts. They trust they will get to where they are going, and they do. Why do humans have such a difficult time listening to their gut or their instinct?

Weekly Challenge
This week, find a quiet time to sit down and review your goals for this week, this month, and this year—then follow your gut, or your instincts, no matter what! See what happens.

Words of Wisdom
Intuition is seeing with the soul.” – Dean Koontz

“You will never follow your own inner voice until you clear up the doubts in your mind.” – Roy T. Bennett

“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.” – C. Joy Bell C.

“Don’t try to comprehend with your mind. Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.” – Madeleine L’Engle

“When you reach the end of what you should know, you will be at the beginning of what you should sense.”  – Kahlil Gibran

New Team-Group FREC Advertising Rules

New FREC Advertising Rules and what it means for you!

FREC 61J2 – 10.026 team or group advertising rules.

PROPOSED UPDATE…  Something to note, even though this draft is geared more towards Teams, we anticipate this rule being across the board for advertising from Team or Individual Agents.

1. Team or Group Advertising shall mean a collective name or logo used by one or more real estate licensees who represent themselves to the public as part of one brokerage that performs real estate license activities under the supervision of the same broker.

2. Each team or group shall file with the broker an appointed team leader to represent the team or group. This team leader shall be responsible for ensuring that the advertising is in compliance with Chapter 475 Florida Statutes and 61J2 Florida Administrative Code.

3. The registered broker must maintain a current written record of each team’s or group’s members.

4. Team or group names. Real estate team or group names must always include the word “team” or “group” as part of the name.

Real estate team or group name shall not include the following words:

a. Associates
b. Brokerage
c. Brokers
d. Company
e. Corporation
f. Corp.
g. Inc.
h. LLC
i. LP or LLP
j. Real Estate
k. Realty
l. or similar words suggesting the team or group is a separate real estate brokerage or company

All of these indicate a real estate brokerage business. It had become too deceptive to the general public. Only a broker can own and operate and register a real estate brokerage business, not sales associates or broker associates.

5. Unless otherwise provided, this rule applies to all mediums of advertising including print, radio or television, and Internet. It includes but is not limited to such type of advertising as signs, billboards, email, business stationery, business cards, business documents, signs, logos, newsletters, or electronic equivalents, or anything of a similar kind of use for a similar purpose as any of the items set forth above.

6. Advertisements containing the team or group name, team or group member, or individual licensee shall not appear in larger print or be more prominently displayed than the name of the registered brokerage’s logo.

7. All signage, including yards and billboards, must comply with these requirements no later than 12 months following effective date of this rule.

8. Excluding the items listed above, all other relevant advertising must comply with these requirements no later than six months following the effective date of this rule.

A timeframe for when a final rule will be passed and implemented is indefinite, but it’s a good time for the industry to begin preparing for this change.


Here 4 quick things to think about as we get ready for this new rule.

1.As you are designing logos and marketing, think of where the RE/MAX Elite logo will be placed..along side your branding.  We have several logos to choose from to make this easier for you or feel free to get with Heather for some brainstorming sessions.

2. Website – If you are using a website other than the RE/MAX SPAW website, is the office name/logo alongside your name, logo or branding?

3. Advertising Images – Any images you post to social media or advertising that has your Name or Logo needs to have the Office name or logo as well.  Currently the only requirement is that the Brokerage name be on the image but if these rules get passed, the Brokerage name will need to follow these new rules and be as big as your branding.

4. Social Media – In your Bio/About you should list the Brokerage name.
