The Key to Life is Mastering the "Relativelys"

By
Real Estate Agent with American Dream Realty- Broker Associate BRE#01420207

I have been spending quite a bit of time around the house painting and fixing things in preparation of my first child's arrival. At the same time I have finalized a few home sales, touched base with clients and organized my office. Think about all the things that you and I work on each day: organizing files, returning phone calls, generating leads, negotiating contracts, listing homes, showing property, managing your household, keeping up with friends and family… the list goes on and on. With so many responsibilities, the average person has to beMastering the "Relativelys" a multitasking savant.

In Real Estate, a REALTOR needs to be a strong negotiator, an advocate, a listener, a therapist, a marketing genius, and a Web administrator. We learn and uphold basic contract law while making sure our Facebook and Twitter pages are massaged regularly. I propose we get Zen about our lives, and learn to master the "relativelys."

I would like to think that I am relatively good at many things. There will always be someone better than me at everything and this is OK. It doesn't mean that I stop striving for improvement; it just means that I accept who I am and what my life is all about. I am relatively smart. I am relatively kind. I am relatively ambitious. I would like to continue to embody these qualities, because the key to life lies in mastering the "relativelys." Here lies the sweet spot from which we can enjoy our achievements and relax into life. I hope my soon-to-be-born son will embody these qualities too.
