What a great year this is starting out to be. I keep hearing how bad the market is and how slow everyone is and blah blah blah. But you know, I'm selling houses. At the beginning of every year, I have a figure in mind, of how much income I want to make for that year. Today, on the 24th of January I have already reached 25% of my income goal for 2007, counting closings and deals on the books!! Why is that? Is there something special that I've done? Am I that talented and good I what I do? I don't think so.
I think it's because I refuse to listen to and participate in, negativity. My goal in life and business is to always move forward. I never look back. I never make u-turns. If I miss my turn, I plow forward and find another route to take. Moving forward and being positive is a conscious choice I make everyday. It takes practice but everyone can do it. It's a funny thing but when you choose to take this path, good things happen, people want to work with you and they want to be around you. Life is easier. Granted, I still have issues in life, just like everyone else, but I choose to not let them get me down. Issues don't have to turn into life crises. You can choose to look at them as nothing more than a challenge, an opportunity to shine. Why shouldn't you have issues in your life? Everyone does.
It's not the issues that bring us down it's the way we react to them. And how we react to them, is a choice.
I know what your thinking, "Broker Bryant, what's the point of this post?" The point of this post is to remind everyone that the changes and happenings within ActiveRain, over the last week or so, do not have to be a crisis. We can choose to keep moving forward and we can choose to be optimistic. Change won't do us in, the negativity will.
So, for me, I'm going to keep listing properties, negotiating deals, attending closings, participating in ActiveRain and most importantly, I'm going to keep moving forward. And because of these choices, that I have made, great things are going to happen. So come on, hop on board my one way train to success. Just don't ask me to stop or turn around. All aboard!!!!!!!!
