I see the possibilities or what happens when you lose your side view mirror?

YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO PASS ANOTHER CAR WITHOUT A RIGHT HAND MIRRIOR?  LET ME TELL YOU, IN CASE YOU HAVE NEVER LOST ONE~!   IT IS A CRAZY FEELING.  IT IS DECEMER 2010 REM ARTICLE

I SEE THE POSSIBILITIES! OR WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR SIDE VIEW MIRROR?

I WAS ABLE TO SEE WHAT I WANTED TO DO, I COULD SEE THE OPOORTUNITY EVEN WHEN OTHERS COULD NOT, AND I STAYED COMMITTED TO DOING IT AND DOING IT WELL, NO MATTER WHAT*MAGIC JOHNSON, ALL STAR NBA PLAYER

LATE LAST MONTH, AFTER GOING THROUGH THE PETROCAN CAR WASH, I ENTERED THE 407 TOLL ROAD THAT I SOMETIMES TAKE TO THE OFFICE WHEN IN A HURRY.   A FRACTION OF A MINUTE LATER I HEAR A THUD.  LOOKIHG AROUND QUICKLY, I DISCOVERED MY RIGHT HAND ONE OF EXTREME ANXIETY WHEN YOU CANNOT VIEW THE VEHICLE IN THE LANE YOU JUST PASSED, OR WHAT IS COMING UP FROM BEHIND YOU ON THAT RIGHT HAND SIDE. 

HOW LONG I WONDER, HAVE THE RIGHT HAND MIRRORS BEEN ARO UND?   ASKING AT TH E OFFICE, NOBODY COULD TELL ME AND FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I COULD NEVER REMEMBER EVER DRIVING WITHOUT ONE - NOTE I HAVE BEEN DIRIVING SINCE I WAS 16! 

I SUFFERED THROUGH THE NEXT FEW DAYS WITHOUT ONE, UNTIL MY DEALER CAME UP WITH A USED ONE.   I WAS TRULY GREATFUL TO HAVE IT BACK SO THAT I COULD DRIVE SAFELY.AGAIN.

DURING THE FEW DAYS THAT I WAS INCONVENIENCED, I STARTED TO THINK ABOUT WHAT WAS IN OUR REAR VIEW MIRRORS?  WHAT WAS IN THE PHOTOGRAPH OF OUR MINDS?  MANY THOUGHTS RACED THROUGH MY MIND FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS BEING WITHOUT MY REAR VIEW MIRROR.

MY THINKING EVOLVED TO THIS MANTRA:  WHAT DID WE DO THIS PAST YEAR?   ARE WE ABOUT TO REPEAT THE SAME THIS YEAR COMING?   CAN WE IMPROVE ON WHAT WE DID?  WOULD WE BE ABLE TOSAY I GAVE BACK TO MY COMMUNITY?   DID I HELP MY FELLOW COLLEAGUE IN TIME OF NEEED?  DID I DEVOTE MYSELF TO MY FAMILY WHEN THEY NEEDED ME MOST?

THESE ARE ALL TANGIBLE AND VALID QUESTIONS THAT ONLY YOU, MY DEAR READERS CAN ANSWER.

SO, WHEN WE COME TO THE END OF THIS YEAR, 2010 ARE YOU ABLETO SEE IN YOUR PERSONAL SIDE VIEW MIRROR. AND SEE SOME POSSIBILITIES FOR 2011?

ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE THAT EXTRA EFFORT TO ENSURE YOU COMPLETE EACH AND EVERY DETAIL SO THAT YOU’RE CLIENT AND YOUR BROKERAGE IS WELL SERVED? 

BY JUST MAKING A LITTLE EXTRA EFFORT TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS/BUSINESS PLAN, WILL YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE AND YOUR LIFESTYLE?  OR ARE YOU JUST GOING TO LOOK IN THAT REAR VIEW MIRROR NEXT YEAR AND WATCH THE I WISH  I DID, I WISH I COULD HAVE AND//OR  WILL I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONES LIFE BY DOING A BETTER JOB?

TAKE A MOMENT IN THIS MONTH TO REFLECT, TO REVIEW AND TO THINK ABOUT THE MANY WONDERUL OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO YOU TO HELP YOU TO SUCCEED.

YES, I SEE THE POSSIBILITIES IN THE FUTURE OF OUR REAL ESTATE BUSINESS AS A GROWING, ENERGIZING AND TRULY AMAZING PROFESSION.

OUR BUSINESS HAS INDEED EVOLVED FROM THE STEREOTYPICAL VISION OF THE BACK SLAPPING, AND PUSHY SALESPERSON THAT WE WERE PERCEIVED TO BE IN THE PAST.

TODAY, THE MODERN AND UP-TO-THE-MINUTE AGENT HAS ALL THE TOOLS NECESSARY TO BE TRULY ON TOP OF THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY AT HAND.  THE AGENT OF THE FUTURE WILL BE BETTER EQUIPED AND MORE SKILLED AS MORE AND MORE BROKERAGES SEGUAY INTO PROVIDING THE EDUCATON AND TEACHING OF SKILLS THAT ARE NECESSASRY TO COMPETE IN THE CHANGING WORLD.   THOSE THAT DO NOT CHOOSE TO BE UP-TO-DATE WILL NOT BE AS SUCCESSFUL AS THOSE WHO DO.  SO, AGAIN, IS YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR GOING TO BRING BACK MEMORIES OF DAYS GONE PAST WITHOUT YOUR DOING WHAT YOU HAD HOPED TO ACHIEVE?

I  LEAVE YOU WITH THIS QUOTE FROM ONE OF THE BEST TRAINERS IN THE INDUSTRY:

A CLEAR VISON, BACKED BY DEFINITE PLANS, GIVES YOU A TREMENDOUS FEELING OF CONFIDENCE AND PERSONAL POWER*BRIAN TRACEY

I AM GRATEFUL TO JIM ADAIR FOR PUBLISHING MY MANY ARTICLES OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS AND I AM HONORED TO BE ONE OF THE MANY VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTORS TO THIS AMAZING PAPER.

MAY I WISH YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES THE VERY BEST OF 2011 AND MAY THE COMING YEAR BRING YOU ONLY GOOD HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND PROSPERITY!

PS SORRY THIS IS IN CAPS. MY KEYBOARD HAS GREMLINS!

Stan,

If you want to go forward and not repeat your mistakes, it's best to look at the experiences that you have already had and learn from them.
