WHY CAN'T WE EMBRACE CHANGE?

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential PenFed Realty

Over the weekend I got to meet an agent I have been referring clients to for a number of years. The only person I know, is the person on the front of that business card I have. We stay in contact with email and phone conversations but that's about it.

We planned to meet at a local restaurant and as sat there looking around the room for this person. I thought maybe I had the wrong date. After sitting there a little while longer a person approached me ( a person I did not even recognize) she said are you Vickie and I said yes, of course. I was completely floored when I realized that this was the person I had been talking with for years. She looked nothing like that person on the business card. Of course my first response was "I would have never found you, I was looking for this person as I pulled out her business card". Of course most of our conversation over lunch was, that people don't think about change.( Just to let you know this agent has used the same picture for over 16 years..WOW)

Now, we all know our appearance changes every year even if we don't want it to. But, remember with age comes growth. We may be older but, we're also smarter. We should embrace change and be happy with the person we have became and not the person we once were. Along with age comes success, wealth, independence and the list goes on and on. Be proud of who you are and what you have become and accomplished. I bet you have worked really hard to get where you are today, so be proud of it.

I change my picture every year on all of my marketing material..I am proud of who I am..Aren't You?

I agree with you.  I'm working on getting a new picture but hate to spend $150.

I should change my picture but I am holding onto that image of no gray, and 25 pounds less! You are right I must admit!

Janet, I know where your coming from it is so expensive..

And, Gary I bet you earned everyone of these gray hairs by working hard and if you have kids? I bet they gave you a few..Be proud of them. My husband is now gray and he looks so distinguished.

Remember life is to short to worry about what color our hair is...:) Be happy for today, we may not have a tomorrow..

Hi Vickie, It's a good thing you had your photo updated so she knew who you were.  I like your photo, btw.  Very few agents keep their photo up to date. :)

Something that should be done by all but I think most agents(people) don't like the way they look in a photo so they just forget about it.

BTW..I no longer have a goatee or comb my hair back...guess it is time for that new photo..lol
