Are You A "Woodpecker"......Or.....Are You a "Noah???"

By
Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages Connecticut NMLS #65149

There are a lot of “Woodpeckers” in all phases of the Real Estate business who are trying to poke holes in our boat.  Those of us who are not “Woodpeckers” need to follow the sound example that is found in the story of Noah and his Ark.  Hopefully the “Woodpeckers” have not pecked holes in your boat yet, but if they have,  today is Sunday “The First Day Of The Week” a great day to start fixing those holes.

 One:     Don't miss the boat.

Two:     Remember that we are all in the same boat.

Three:   Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

Four:     Stay fit someone may ask you to do something really big.

Five:      Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

Six:        Build your future on high ground, a solid Rock is even better.  

Seven:   When God speaks listen.

Eight:    Speed isn't alwa! ys an a dvantage. The snails were on board  with  the cheetahs.

Nine:     When you're stressed, float a while.

Ten:         Don’t try to do it alone, two is better than one.

Eleven:     Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

Twelve:     Even Noah had Woodpeckers on board.

Thirteen:   No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.

You are the only one who can decide if you are a “Woodpecker” or a “Noah”.  I hope this has given you some things to think about, but more importantly I hope that you are able to apply them to your life and your business.

Please feel free to add to the list above.
