>Motives….

>I’m back people!!!! Well, I’m back today. You might have noticed my last entry was Aug. 2ND. Let me explain……I had a stark realization about myself…..and it wasn’t a fun one to publicize but for the sake vulnerability and transparency here goes:

I realized that somewhere along the way in my desire to influence people through writing I began to love the feedback even more than the writing itself. I would constantly check to see if someone had “thought it was good” or “insightful”. I’d check to see how many people had visited my blog or became followers. Then one night I could smell it. It was the pungent…..oderous smell of pride. That’s the smell of wanting people to approve of me and my effort to seek out “kudos” from people. What started out as a great tool to influence people for good, turned into something that was influencing me for the bad.

Proverbs 16:2
All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight,
But the LORD weighs the motives.
NASU

The Lord weighed my motives and reminded me that HE is my supreme value.

So I’m back for now and asking Jesus to help me to continue to walk in humility so that I bring Him glory rather than be a hinderance to myself or others.

Missed you,

Nathan

  6. I have learned new things from a blog post. One other thing to I have observed is that in many instances, FSBO sellers will reject anyone. Remember, they might prefer to not ever use your products and services. But if an individual maintain a reliable, professional connection, offering support and remaining in contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually have the ability to win a business interview. From there, a house listing follows. Thank you

  7. Thanks for the a new challenge you have discovered in your writing. One thing I’d like to touch upon is that FSBO associations are built after a while. By releasing yourself to owners the first end of the week their FSBO is definitely announced, ahead of the masses start out calling on Wednesday, you develop a good interconnection. By sending them methods, educational materials, free accounts, and forms, you become an ally. By subtracting a personal fascination with them in addition to their circumstance, you create a solid network that, in many cases, pays off as soon as the owners decide to go with a real estate agent they know and also trust — preferably you.

  8. I have observed that over the course of constructing a relationship with real estate proprietors, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every single real estate financial transaction, a commission is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers will not “save” the commission. Rather, they fight to earn the commission by means of doing the agent’s work. In doing this, they spend their money along with time to execute, as best they’re able to, the obligations of an agent. Those assignments include uncovering the home by means of marketing, delivering the home to willing buyers, creating a sense of buyer urgency in order to make prompt an offer, booking home inspections, taking on qualification assessments with the financial institution, supervising repairs, and aiding the closing of the deal.

  9. Thanks for your posting. One other thing is the fact that individual states in the United states of america have their very own laws in which affect people, which makes it very hard for the our lawmakers to come up with a brand new set of guidelines concerning foreclosure on people. The problem is that every state features own legislation which may interact in a damaging manner with regards to foreclosure plans.
