Love Is In The Air
Now that January is over and all of the "New Year, New Me" business is behind us, we can focus on the month of February. Have you ever noticed that people are either really happy and giddy or they're grumpy and agitated in February? Either you have an amazing Valentine and dozens of long stem roses to look forward to or it's time for another "girls night in" with a case of wine to mask the fact that you don't have a Valentine. No matter what side of Cupid you're on, it's very clear that love is in the air...
"We've heard it all before
"Love makes the world go round"
"Love is patient. Love is kind"
"I will always love you"
Love can make you do some crazy things. When you're in love, you tend to do some things you normally wouldn't do. You let your guard down. You share your innermost thoughts. You strip down emotionally and become vulnerable and transparent. When you find "the one" and fall in love, you have an energy and a drive that is unmatched. It's a beautiful thing!
Do you have a love affair with your real estate career? Does it keep you awake at night on the phone when you should be asleep? Does it wake you up early in the morning when you have the chance to sleep in? Do your friends see something different in you, a little extra pep in your step? When you talk about real estate, do you glow with excitement? When the business disappoints you, do you figure out a way to make it work or do you quit? Do you invest time and money to grow your love affair with real estate? When you have a disagreement, do you kiss and makeup?
Real estate is a business that you have to love. You can't just "like" real estate and it can't be about lust (i.e. money). Your LOVE of real estate makes the world go round. Your LOVE for real estate is patient. Your LOVE for real estate is kind. You will always LOVE real estate and real estate will always LOVE you!
Take the time to court your business and fall in love with real estate!
