Getting Up from Failure

The list is long of instances when I’ve been an idiot and made poor choices. From the mundane to the profound, I’ve made some doozies. Picture this, I’m driving down the road on the way to the office and I see a Texas Longhorn sticker on the back window of a guy’s truck. Being in Phoenix I don’t see a ton of these so I decided let him know “I’m a Longhorn fan too!”. I drive up next to him and proceed to give him the “hook’em horns” sign with my hand, but the guy is looking at me like I’m nuts. I’m thinking what’s the deal, show me some love! What I then realize is that instead of the “hook’em horns” sign, I was giving him the “I LOVE YOU” sign (Thumb, forefinger, pinky). As he drives on I feel again my actions confirm that I’m an idiot.

Here’s the deal, as I said before that story pales in comparison to some of the other things I’ve done in my life. When I look at the moments that I’ve fallen on my face and blow it there is always a wave of guilt and shame that rushes over me. It can be crippling and make me feel like I cannot move forward. Thankfully I’ve found God’s grace to enough to cover those mistakes I’ve made. Bottom Line: Your Failure Does Not Have to Define You.

  1. I have observed that wise real estate agents everywhere you go are starting to warm up to FSBO Advertising. They are acknowledging that it’s more than simply placing a sign post in the front area. It’s really regarding building relationships with these traders who at some time will become customers. So, when you give your time and effort to assisting these sellers go it alone – the “Law regarding Reciprocity” kicks in. Great blog post.

  2. I have realized that over the course of making a relationship with real estate managers, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in each and every real estate purchase, a payment is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers will not “save” the percentage. Rather, they fight to win the commission through doing an agent’s job. In doing so, they shell out their money as well as time to accomplish, as best they are able to, the duties of an real estate agent. Those duties include exposing the home via marketing, delivering the home to all buyers, constructing a sense of buyer emergency in order to prompt an offer, organizing home inspections, controlling qualification checks with the financial institution, supervising fixes, and assisting the closing.

  3. Thanks for your post. One other thing is the fact that individual states in the United states of america have their own personal laws of which affect house owners, which makes it very difficult for the the nation’s lawmakers to come up with the latest set of rules concerning property foreclosures on people. The problem is that each state possesses own legislation which may work in an undesirable manner on the subject of foreclosure insurance policies.
