WHAT I LEARNED FROM THE 2012 OLYMPICS

This year’s Olympic Athletes have taught me that learning begins with a vision and a strategy, which requires a commitment and continuous efforts to achieve my best. As a REALTOR® who has survived some of the toughest years in the business, I recognize that to be the best I must be mentally prepared, think before I act with a manner consistent with my belief system, act decisively and perform at my best.

What I learned from the 2012 Olympic Champions is to FOCUS on priorities, IMPLEMENT and stick with the plan, REFLECT on my techniques and make continuous improvements, SEEK support from those that matter, i.e., a trained professional coach, and be ready to  TRANSFER knowledge to those that come after me.

Michael Phelps and Misty May Treanor have taught me it takes personal courage and strength to succeed and to quit with grace and dignity. My eyes have seen that everyone is to be judged fairly; but when in doubt, stand up for your rights and make an appeal. On August 9, Aly Raisman’s bronze turned into Silver after the United States filed a protest. All of our Olympic heroes, through their blood, sweat and tears illustrated beautifully that life is not a beauty pageant. You have to have heart to put it on the finish line and give thanks at the end. I witnessed true Olympic Stars who were not afraid to publicly give thanks to their Creator in front of the media and I was proud that they were proud of the countries they represented. The world at large needs true role models and I am proud of everyone who competed in the Olympics.

Each Olympic champion has a story. It’s not where you came from it is how you got here and why it matters. The same is true for REALTORS®, those in the Real Estate Industry, home owners and sellers too, everyone has a story and if you treat people with honesty and integrity you can live with yourself with no regrets. Our 2012 Olympic Athletes had a common thread. No matter what sport you’re in, always demonstrate good sportsmanship – everyone is watching, recording, talking and learning from your actions. Confidence begins with living with integrity. Those that succeed with honesty and integrity are a true inspiration. Good sportsmanship is the hallmark of great character.

In conclusion, I hereby make a public commitment to help anyone striving to achieve a goal in owning Real Estate that I will be there to encourage you to reach your goal. Our Olympians have taught us all that there is no telling what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself and you are inspired to dream.

Every 2 years as I watch with great enthusiasm, I am continually amazed at the dedication, perserverence and fight that these athletes demonstrate.   Oh - and their familes too!   My goodness.   To hear their stories of blood, sweat and tears, brings tears to my eyes and new perspective of how hard I need to try to make my world better - like they have.   Thank you athletes and thank you world for letting us enjoy the true strength & peace that the olympics brings.

Patricia- Excellent Post!!!!!  I love watching the Olympics and this year was very special to see my 7 and 10 year glued to the tv and asking lots of questions.  Some of them were about the different sports but then some were asking about the history of the different countries during the opening ceremony.  This was an excellent opportunity for my husband  and I to educate our kids to let them know how blessed we are to live in a wonderful and free country.   Now with your outlook in real estates and what we took away from the Olympics and really made me think.  I did not see it that way but now I do.  I know these last few years in the mortgage industry has been a big change.  Lots of focus on new guidelines in the industry and determination that I could do this, made me successed.  I am so blessed to have support (FANS) from a great company, repeat clients, and Realtors to keep me motivated too!  Best of luck to you Patricia.

Something else we learned from Phelps is not to get too cocky about things. Just because things are going really well for you, doesn't mean you should reject new ideas. We have to continue to learn and grow to get better.

Patricia  The beauty of our American Olympians is that they are a microcosm of many nationalities, ethnic and religious backgrounds all molded into a dynamic team of athletes -  the only team like it in the world.  It is a concept most of the countries f the world don't undestand.

Additional Information

I enjoy being a REALTOR selling residential properties in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, especially where I office in Flower Mound. I have been in the business for more than 11 years at Keller Williams Realty. I've built my business by referrals and I care enough to provide quality service to keep business relationships strong. My passion is writing about the things that are important to me and for my business. I'm an advocate for education and family comes first. I find inspiration in nature. Wherever I go, I manage to photo journal and learn something new, even if it's as simple as observing a butterfly. I've done some commercial properties too and I believe home ownership is better than renting.
