Virginia Beach Home Loans: Let's Make it a Great 2008!Yes?

Let's Make it a Great 2008!Yes?

Is the closing statement in an email that I received from a Realtor partner of mine whom I am helping to advertise. It was just the closing statement, but in and of itself it is a wonderful statement that can be applied over and over again year after year.

I feel that for my own personal and professional growth this statement is more true than ever. I have had my ups and downs in this business and in general since I've been old enough to work. This is the work that has really captured my heart and I am poised for success like I have never been in my life.

I have so many great things going on for my business that it is very easy to get very excited. When I talk to my friends about my career many of them tell me that they hate their jobs, they only wish that they could have something waiting for them at work that gets them so excited that they forget they are tired and jump out of bed; which is the way that I feel every single morning.

I don't have to be in until 9am but  I am rarely here later than 8:30am, usually in around 8-8:15am. I really took off mid way through the year and going into 2008 I am so excited!

I have many new contacts because I have put a lot of effort into working hard to provide a high level of service and going the extra mile. Instead of using the phone to tell people how great I am; I am showing people that I really care and that I will do whatever is needed to ensure smooth transactions, seemless processes, and happy clients.

I offer help and advice to my Realtor partners and even if I feel like I am going to pull my hair out, I never give the people I work with the impression that I am too busy for them.

There are a lot of specific details regarding what I am doing for marketing, but I am not going to talk about that here. I think one of the best ways that you can market yourself is simply; TRY YOUR HARDEST, DO YOUR BEST, AND NEVER GIVE UP!

You are correct. A simple positive statement goes a long way. Yes, let's make it a great 2008.

Rosario, Yeah it does. It is amazing how one simple positive statement can have an impact. This statement got me to thinking of a few years ago when I was getting started and had nothing. 2007 has been a wonderful year for my family and I, and I am striving to make 2008 even better. When I think about where I am compared to how far I've come I become very happy... Last night when I was talking to my wife about our plans for the year I felt a large smile spread the width of my face and I said to her "Let's make it a great 2008! Yes?" She agreed with me and went on with the conversation not knowing how uplifted this statement had made me the entire day. So now that I am back to this post, I am smiling and feeling pretty good again; Yes, Let make it a great 2008!
