January 2023 Warm Fuzzy- You Light Up My Life

coach mike stott warm fuzzies Jan 16, 2023

This is the time of year we have usually taken time to pause and reflect and set goals and make resolutions. Sadly many of us will have already “failed” and have resigned ourselves to the status quo.
I’ve been extremely fortunate to have several powerful mentors in my life.  I love to read and have become addicted to podcasts as I drive (I’ve listened to over 2200 hours of them -that is more time than I spent learning and getting a 4-year college degree!)  One thing people have in common if that everybody fails.  Steven Speilberg was rejected from film school.  Chris Pratt was homeless and living in a van before getting his first part – which paid him $700.  Sylvester Stallone sold his dog to buy food. JK Rowling was on welfare and broke and 12 publishing houses rejected Harry Potter. Katy Perry’s first record sold 200 copies. Henry Ford had his first two companies go bankrupt.  I could go on and on. 
Here is what I learned: extreme pressure and setbacks allow us to develop the mental toughness to overcome obstacles we face in the future. It allows people to gain self-confidence when they have a setback. Instead of quitting or getting down on themselves, they saw the opportunity to say “This is why am here.  This is the opportunity to learn and to get better.” 

So be gentle with your sweet self.  Persevere. Take the opportunity to get better and accomplish what you really, clearly want.  Do it anyways.  If you have questions regarding buying, selling, or managing real estate we are just a call away. 






Really, Working with our clients is the best part of our job!
