Perspective Is Everything
This is my first formal blog post and after everything that has happened in my life over the past few months there is a lot to get off my chest. This blog is going to be focusing on the everyday activities of my life and building on of Palm Beach Counties and South Florida’s top real estate teams. A combination of work and life, oh and don’t forget a lot of my thoughts and opinions. So I hope you are ready.
This week I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite entrepreneurs Gary Vaynerchuck at the National Achievers Conference with Tony Robbins. Now I have to say, I went to this conference solely because of Gary, was never a huge Tony Robbins fan, but after seeing Tony in person I have a new found love for him and his thoughts. The conference helped to put a lot into perspective for me and that is what I want to chat about today. I left that conference with a new way to look at not only my business, but my life. With how fast things move in today’s society we often take a lot of people and aspects of our lives for granted. My drive home from the conference was three hours and I spent the entire three hours and another hour at my condo on the phone with people in my life, not only just to chat, but to tell them how much I appreciate them.
When you begin to break your life down and take a deep look into it, there are always certain people who quickly rise to the top of mind. If you haven’t taken the time to sit down and evaluate your current situation, you truly need to. Understand that not only the chances of being healthy and successful, but the mere chance of being a human is about one and a hundred million. What if you were a tree? A rock? But if you are reading this, you were fortunate enough to be born as a human! Take that into perspective for a minute.
We are always going to have good times, hard times, sad times and more. But, you aren’t a rock. It sounds funny to say, but take a moment to think about it. And when you begin to put things into perspective ask yourself the question of what an extraordinary life looks like to you. If you could make your life extraordinary in six months what would that life look like to you? What would you need to do in order to make this dream a reality? Jot these thoughts down, force yourself to think about it. Now, what in your life right now is preventing you from making your life extraordinary? Is someone holding you back? It’s going to be hard, but whatever is holding you back, get rid of it or them. It won’t be easy to do, but in the long term it will be the best thing you have ever done in your life.
Everything doesn’t happen for a reason, everything happens because of the choices we make. If you are choosing to let someone in your life hold you back or make you miserable, then ultimately that is your fault. It’s not the presidents fault, a circumstances fault, it’s 100% your fault and the quicker you take responsibility, the quicker you can move onto building your empire. Just remember to take a look at the little things in life and understand the perspective of your life at this very moment: the good, the bad, the ugly and the great. You and only you can make the choices of keeping those that build you and getting rid of the things that bring you down. There is no mulligan, no re-take, we all only have one life and one opportunity to make sure everyday is better than the next.
