Your Word

To me, there is not a whole lot more important than your word! In business and real estate as it is in any relationship it is of upmost importance if one desires to keep that relationship and have it be workable.

BridgeYour word in my world is more than just saying or doing what you said you would do. Why not go even farther than to honor your word? Honoring your word is a matter of integrity. Integrity is a structure like the structure of the engineering of a bridge. If the integrity or structure of a bridge is not whole, eventually the bridge will no longer work.

How can one go further with your integrity or word, by following the tenants below:

I learned the following from a personal and professional development and training company called Landmark. (see the page under interests of David)

  1. You can do what you said you would do. Honor your word.LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview
  2. Do what it is you know to do.
  3. You can do what one would expect you to do.
  4. Do what needs to be done.
  5. You can do complete work.

This is all above and beyond what one may think is good enough. What if one lived in a world where good enough, wasn’t good enough? What if one lived in a world where their word was more than that? Would real estate be a whole lot easier? Would entering into a relationship with a real estate agent be more productive, simpler, and easy? Would there be more closed sales? Would life be more the way it ought to be?

I say YES.

What are You Creating Today?

LightWhat are you creating today? This was the question Rev. Dr. Michale Beckwith, the founder and señor minister at the Agape International Spiritual Center https://agapelive.com in Beverly Hills, asked this last Sunday. This simple question was profound for me. It made me think and I hope it makes you think too. Rev Michale went on to remind us that we are all born creators, that is who we are, and what we were created to do.

This is an extremly profound truth. You were born to create, and you can create literally anything you want. God, Spirit, the Universe, the Mind, Universal Intelligence, whatever you want to call, whatever it is… Wants you to create. Let me repeat that, God wants you to create.

Dr. Beckwith went on to tell us to let go of our victim consciousness. He is saying stop pretending that you are a victim. Stop pretending that you are anything less than awesome, fantastic, with all the abilities in the world. Stop pretending that you are not complete, whole, and truly unique in every way. Know that there is no one, absolutely no one like you. You are the only you that was ever, or will ever be. And just being born, being the sperm that made it is one in something like 13 trillion. Believe it when I tell you, you are truly special.LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

Rev Michal went on to ask, “What do you need?” The answer is…NOTHING.

If you can truly create anything, why not create your perfect home, sale, or rental property? Really, what is it you are creating today? Ask yourself, what do I want to create. My buddy Arron wanted a cabin in Big Bear, and he now has a beautiful cabin in Big Bear. Ask and you shall receive. Choose what it is you want to create, and it will be created. So why not create your new or NextHome… ha ha… did you like the way I threw that in there? Again, Rev Michale asks you, what are you creating today?

System vs No System–There is No Question

SystemShould a real estate agent or for that matter should anyone have a system. A Realtor is an independent contractor, and is by definition by being independent is without a system. In my 34 years of experience as someone who didn’t have a system, I believed not having a system was one of the greatest benefits to being a real estate agent. An agent has the ability to do whatever they want to do when they want to do it.

The definition of a system is (a set of things working together as part of a mechanism working together or an interconnecting network). Another way of looking at it is having a plan of action, knowing what it is one will be doing from day to day. Having been a licensed real estate agent for 34 years, I can tell you most all realtors work without a system. In my opinion, it is like working on a circus aerial act without a net. It’s not a good idea and sooner or later, someone is going to get hurt.LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

The mechanism or interconnecting network of a real estate business doesn’t work as well without a plan or system. I was fortunate to meet and learn from Gina and Kirby Ellis, owners of Next Level Real Estate Academy https://nextlevelrealestateacademy.com. I have been in their training for a year and a half. The best and most unique real estate training I have encountered. There is a saying,  you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I’m living proof that you can. For the first time, my business has a system. I know exactly what I’m doing, how to do it, and when to do it. It has made my business so much more efficient and productive.

The System that Gina and Kirby teach is great for me, and even better for my clients. My buyers actually save thousands of dollars when they buy, and the sellers I work with make thousands more when they sell! They know when I’m calling them and even what I’m going to ask them. My clients have a specific target date set for their closings. They know exactly what to do to save and make the thousands more. They learn and know the eight departments we travel together to navigate through their real estate journey.

Once you go on a system-You will never go back…Try it you’ll like it…There is no Question!

That’s all I got to say about that!

Intention


MagicAre you interested in the magic of manifesting whatever it is you desire? Do you believe in magic? Can one really just think of something and BAM it is a reality?  Today we are talking about intention. Setting an intention is a major influence on what and how you can attract what it is you want into your life. It truly can seem magical. You can look at it the way Albert Einstein thought of it, “There are two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle the other is as though everything is a miracle.”

An Intention, when set and intensely thought about can and will assist you in manifesting that thing that you are thinking about into your life. The first step is to know and to be clear on what it is you want. For me, I want to have a townhome on the bluffs. The bluffs are western facing not only to the sunset (which is awesome) but also the Pacific Ocean. For me, being about to see the sunset from my own living room, bedroom, or balcony every night is a dream come true! Many days I either drive to the bluffs or the beach to see the sunset. That is a two or a five-mile drive, just to witness a sunset. LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

You too can set an intention on where you want to live next. Maybe it is in Hawaii, Florida, or the south of France. You might like to retire in England or be an actor in New York City. Maybe you want to get a bigger home right where you live, or maybe scale down to something a bit smaller.

Whatever it is you desire there is magic in simply the act of setting an intention followed by a bit of action. There is a Quaker expression, “Pray and move your feet.” When you set an intention followed by action, you are a powerful force.

It was the last day of eighth grade, there was an assembly and the school gave out awards. One of the awards was for most outstanding athletic for the entire school. Bill McCadden won the award for the most outstanding athletic for all of the ninth grade boys that year. At that moment I set an intention to win it the next year. There were 716 kids in my class, assuming 50% were boys, the odds of me winning that award the next year was one in 358! Not Good Odds. I set an intention to win it the next year. I went out for every sport and did the best I could. I also kept my intention and desire to win it in my head almost every day. And exactly one year later, I walked home with that award, (a really nice trophy) and a lesson that if I set an intention and keep it in mind I can achieve that which I put my intention on.

Whatever it is you desire, a home, a dream vacation, or a mate. Set an intention and add a little action and there is bound to be some magic. Know that, “There are two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle the other is as though everything is a miracle.”
