THE OLYMPIC SPIRIT AND REAL ESTATE
As I have remained glued to my TV over these past few days watching the Olympics, I am always inspired by the stories of these athletes.
Each and every athlete has a story! Some of the stories are very moving! Hours and hours of practice and dedication have been put forth in order for them to stand where they are at this moment.
While we may never receive a gold medal for our efforts in real estate, I am however inspired by many in this business. The gold medal winners in real estate in my mind are the champions who tirelessly work on deals that may or may not pay off. They take care of their clients going above and beyond on most occasions.
Real estate today takes complete dedication, true grit and a whole lot of stamina! Hours and hours of practice, school of hard knocks,and pounding the pavement are required. This business is not for the faint of heart.
As we have discovered with the struggles in the economy and how they have directly affected our business, the true Olympic spirit of the many agents of whom have stayed focused through tough times is truly inspiring. The stories of those agents who did not give up and kept the flame burning are the agents today who are thriving and prospering.
Real estate is not a sprint. This business is a slow and steady marathon race. Keeping the pace steady and on track is key! So here is to you all of the dedicated GOLD MEDAL Real estate professionals! My your light continue to shine on no matter what!
