Are You Sharing Your Best?

Are You Sharing Your Best?

 During this Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s season, I, like you, feel and want to share the love and warmth of the holidays with people I know and those I’ve yet-to-meet. This little story shared with me from my By Referral Only reminds me of how much more loudly our actions speak than words, and how love is the loudest action of all.

 A farmer’s superior corn won awards at the state fair year after year. A newspaper reporter who went out to interview him was surprised to discover that the farmer shared his seed corn with all of his neighbors. “Why do you share your best seed corn with farmers who are going to be competing with you every year?” the reporter asked.

  “The wind picks up pollen from the corn as it ripens and sweeps it from one field to the next,” the farmer smiled as he explained. “If my neighbors grow inferior corn, I’ll end up with inferior corn. If my neighbors grow good corn, I’ll grow good corn, too.”

 It’s the same elsewhere: Keeping what’s “good” all to yourself can hurt you in the end, but sharing what you’ve got tends to come back to reward you.I enjoy this spirit of collaboration and sharing working with and teaching my fellow real estate consultants at Keller Williams Cupertino.

Another example: Someone gave $5 to my sweet husband Steve. He promptly gave it to our loving daughter Monique. Then she went to give it to me! Now that’s sharing the wealth!

I hope December is full of warm holiday memories and moments for you and the people you care about, and that you ring in 2013 with lots of love around you.

Aloha & May God richly bless you this year,

Michelle, yes, cascading effect always helps, if the beginning is good.

(Like Ben Kinney shares many top secrets with us on many webinars....)

Michelle, good parable with regards to the corn.  It is best to share the good stuff to avoid the bad stuff.
