If You're Not Growing, You're Dying Colossians 1:3-12
A few weeks back, I attended a real estate industry event in my own back yard. New York City is really such an incredible place, and no two minutes, let alone days, are ever the same. That feeling got me thinking, so here goes.....
Just a few personal observations, beliefs and random thoughts ;
- I truly believe that it is a privilege to work in the real estate industry, regardless of how easy it may be to get into here in NY state (my personal opinion). There are so many truly talented, gifted, and giving people when you make the effort to find them. There is nothing boring about learning and realizing that no matter how good you are or how talented you may be, there is always something or someone that can help you to improve.
- In my efforts to hunt down some of these people, I stumbled upon another "Ah Ha" moment. During those conversations, I truly witnessed how no 2 people, no matter how similar their goals, can go about things so differently, be skilled at such different things, look for answers in identical places, have personal beliefs that are similar, but can be so different in their methods, and desires to do things in such different ways.
- The technology world fascinates me. For that reason, many people now refer to me as a "nerd" or a "geek", and I am proud of that. In many circles, those words are worn as a badge of honor. But when I approach those who I place that "Badge of Honor" on, I realize how far ahead of me they are in that area of expertise. And I think this is a huge part of what drives me.
- I've always believed that a willingness to learn is the key to success in any endeavor, and for me it is a passion.
What are you passionate about? What drives you? Challenges you? Inspires you? Drives you? The never ending search for the answers to these questions are the things that will make a difference to you, and to all those who you touch on a daily basis. Please share your answers and help to inspire, educate, inform others on a daily basis.
Thanks for taking the time to read my words, and remember, "That's just my opinion, I could be wrong!" - Dennis Miller
