The Three "R"s of Real Estate

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with The Hamptons Edge Real Estate Co.

 

I was just cleaning some old files out of my laptop this morning, when I saw a file named "Good Karma". I don't remember ever seeing it before.

I opened it up to check it out and found that it must have been a file I saved from an email.

Inside, the first page on the slideshow said "This is what the Dalai Lama has to say for 2007, Instructions for Life" (Better late than never, I always say)

There's so much stuff that goes around the internet, and I really don't know much about the Dalai Lama, so I can't verify that he is the source.

That notwithstanding, they are great words to live by.

There were 19 "life statements" in all, but I thought I would just share the ones that I hope I remember each day so I can apply them to my real estate career. I hope you find them interesting.

Instructions For (Real Estate) Life

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

Live a good and honorable life.Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.

Share your knowledge. It is a way to immortality.

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

The above words are pretty good, but I think the most important ones are

Follow the three "R"s

Respect for Self

Respect for others

Responsibility for your actions

 

As agents we all know that these are the most trying of times and everyday is a struggle, I can only speak for myself, of course, but if I can get through this market with my honor, dignity, and sanity, it will only make the success that lies ahead that much sweeter.

Have a great day!

Respect for self & others and being responsible for our own actions -- very wise words.

Hey Bill:  By the way, I love the 3 R's  

Here's one for you... the Dalai Lama did not say this and I don't know who did... I just needed this today and thought it was hilarious and wanted to share.

A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.    

(I think one of my friends said this the other day.)
