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. Let Freedom ring....
Call me; I'll be there. I am "The Little REALTOR® That Could."
