Do you ever notice when you watch someone do something that they are REALLY good at, they make it look so easy…they make it look effortless? Then when we get fired up to give it a shot ourselves we discover just how hard it is. What they make look so simple and natural makes us normal folk look like fools. There is so much more sacrifice, hard work, dedications and skill involved than appears…right? Story from the COO of a Real Estate Company: Last week we had our 8th annual Achievement Awards. What an event it was…our version of the Academy Awards. I would like to congratulate everyone for their accomplishments. We have come a long way from an idea without a name, at a temporary space eight years ago. To a company with over 2,000 people, with over 50 offices not only here and around the country, but around the world. It’s wild and hard to get my head around. No one, two, or three people could do it. It takes a great culture and a team of great people. That is exactly what we have with the 2,000 plus people and growing.At the end of the event we invited to the stage our top 1% (Chairman’s Circle) which are the top 20 out of 2,000 people. Now, let me tell you…these people sell a lot of property and make a lot of money. Like professional athletes what they do looks effortless to so many on the outside looking in. They seem lucky and many times it looks like easy money. Guess again…what these people make look effortless and natural has been years and countless hours of work, dedication, sacrifice and investment in the making. They did not just wake up one day and say, “I am going to be successful in the real estate business” and then bang it happens. They are the definition of Entrepreneur: a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, with considerable initiative and risk. They have made sacrifices and spent countless hours/years working on their craft to be the best they can be. They have the drive, the discipline, the determination, the attitude, the plan, the work ethic and most importantly a Purpose. When the #1 agent in our company, out of 2,000, got up to accept his award he said, “I do what I do for my family…for my wife Vicki and my three kids.” I know this agent works incredibly hard and long hours…he is committed 110% to his career, but it does not compare to the commitment he has to his family…his true PURPOSE in life. So, next time you see someone who makes something look effortless, think again. If you could look behind the curtain at what no one else sees you would find out what it really takes…you would also find a burning desire and purpose. Now look at yourself and look at what you want to accomplish in your life…your F5 (Faith, Family, Friends, Fitness, Finance). What do you really need to do to make it happen? Are you really willing to do what the top people in the game do? That is what it takes to make it look effortless…a lot of effort and a purpose. JUST DO IT!!!!!!!! Get out there and work hard enough at what you do to make it look effortless to others!For a FREE List of 3 Plus Bedroom Paulding County Homes under $150,000 with prices, addresses, and descriptions click the link or fill out the form below.
