Who are the best sales people in the world, just about any 4 year old; they have no fear, they know what they want and they can wrap you around their little finger. Then as Jon Gordon describes we grow up or do we? Instead we grow a sense of fear of doing things. My believe is that if more than two people tell you that you are crazy for wanting to do something, that is pretty good validation that you ought to do it. Read Gordon’s article and see if it applies to you: http://www.jongordon.com/
KEEPING SALES UP AND SPIRITS HIGH DURING THE HOLIDAYS by Jeb Blount. Sales typically dip around the Thanksgiving/Christmas holidays and do not pickup until after New Years and sometimes as late as Mardi Gras. Why? Because agents go on a “mental” holiday during this period and turn down the activity in their business either intentionally or subconsciously. Good article on the subject: http://tinyurl.com/ch8m3jf25% OFF ALL JEFFREY GITOMER PRODUCTS THROUGH DEC 2. www.Gitomer.com.

This is your chance to add to your personal library ad a significant savings.
WIDE-ANGLE CAMERA: There is no doubt that to take exceptional photographs of your listings or homes buyers are interested in, you should have a wide-angle camera lens. The Market Center camera that you can check out has such a lens. I discovered a FujiFilm Z Camera that “seems” to be ideal for real estate agents. It has a wide angle plus a ton of other features like HD capabilities in 720P but more importantly it is so slim it would fit in a shirt pocket. I do not know the quality of the camera but on paper it seems ideal. The catalog price is $159,99 on sale from $132.95 Fuji Finepix Z90 Red Camera - 16126284. (They have other colors as well.) www.elitedeals.com. Just seems like a great fit and combination for our industry; I could be wrong. http://www.elitedeals.com/pta-fdc16126284.htmlSUBER BOWL NATIONAL ANTHEM, see if you can pick out the Coast Guard singers; powerful rendition. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ETrr-XHBjE
GRATITUDE – THE FACE IN THE MIRROR
By Wes Hopper
"No one can love you until you love yourself,
and you cannot love anyone else, until you love yourself."
Raymond Charles Barker
There was a time in my life when my relationships with others were a real mess.
Everything was a struggle, and I wondered what was wrong with everyone.
Nothing changed until the day that I realized that in every disaster there was one person always at the scene of the crime.
That was when my real work began, and it continues to this day. And as our quote suggests, the focus of that work is to love and accept myself.
It's funny, but as I learned to love and accept myself, the people around me did, too.-------------------------------------------
"The Astonishing Power of Gratitude" is available as an audiobook on CD, or as an MP3 download, with bonuses! An inspirational companion for your drive time or walks. Get it today!
Some people left, new people showed up, relationships changed in amazing ways.
It's very humbling to look at the past disasters and conflicts in your life and realize; "Gosh, all this time the problem was me!"
How do you talk to yourself about yourself? Does your talk sound loving and supportive, or is it critical and condemning?
Would you hang around with someone who talked about you the way you do?
If the answer is no, then change the way you talk until the answer is yes.
Post today's quote up where you can see it. Put a little mirror next to it.
Love the person in the mirror.
Many blessings, Wes
