My 2010 was quite a learning experience. I’ve been thru some quite trying times in my life. In the past 24 months, I’ve lost my business a close family member of mine had passed and many times I felt quite lonely.
But from all that had happened I have learned a valuable lesson. As I was going thru my tough times a mentor of mine told me to ‘leave all baggage in the rear view mirror’
Thru my journey, I have conditioned myself to take total responsibility for anything that happens in my life. I mean when my business that was profitable at one time had taken a total dump, I blamed everything from the economy, my friends, my health and even other real estate agents. But then like a light bulb I came to the realization that nobody held a gun to my head and said either my brains or signature was going to end up on my brokerage agreement. (yes I took that from the Godfather Movie) I made the decision to come into this great business in 1999 and each and everything that happened either good or bad I had manifested for myself.
I drowned myself in reading good books. The book that stood out to me the most was ‘The Noticer’ by Andy Andrews. It’s a fictional book, but so well written it had me ‘noticing’ myself and knowing that things are ALWAYS what they seem because it was from the perspective that I gave it. Once I started conditioning myself that nothing ever goes wrong in my life, not only my business and health, but my personal life turned around and I met the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.
2011 is going to be a phenomenal year for me and I wish the same for every person that I come across in my journey thru life!
Make it a great Year!
