THE Best Way to Succeed Right Now?

By
Real Estate Agent with Environmental Visions

Focus on where YOU want to go!!!    environmentalvisions

One of the most important life lessons I learned, I learned on the ski slope about 20 years ago - and it environmentalvisionscertainly applies today.                                                                                

I was skiing at Steamboat Springs down that really wide slope that had a strip of saplings running down the middle (probably aren't saplings any longer).  I was going at a pretty good speed and I kept looking at  them thinking "I dont' want to hit those trees" ....  guess what--                          

I hit the very thing I was FOCUSING on NOT hitting - and went sprawling across the slope - glasses one way -- skis the other.. very embarassing for someone who prides herself on her athletic skills...

But the lesson is..... had I focused on what I wanted - to go down the middle of the open slope... I would have hit my goal!   It seems so simple, but in reality can take some practice to implement because we think so much more about what we DON'T want as opposed to what we DO want. 

So while the real estate markets finish correcting themselves, and the economy gets straightened out - both of which will occur - learn from my lesson...

Pick that point on the slope where YOU WANT TO BE - (NOT where people say we are)... and focus there.... you will be amazed at how much easier it is to drive your business, you life, etc.!

Another confirmation of the law of attraction! Mmmm ... I'm sitting in my beach house enjoying my vodka tonic after a successful day of writing two contracts, attending a closing, having a great lunch with a past client, and obtaining a super new listing.
