   Networking is a large part of the real estate industry and therefore a large part of my job.  LinkedIn is a wonderful resource I have been enjoying over the last several years.  More and More business professionals are joining LinkedIn.  The wealth of information is enormous and its right at our fingertips!

Here is an article that I found today that is sure to be a pep talk for anyone in the walk of life:

Neil Steggal, Director, FAICD

The synopsis is:  

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” – President Calvin Coolidge
In order to achieve complicated or difficult goals, persistence is the most significant factor. There are lessons to be learnt from the successful, persistent leaders in all walks of life who have overcome enormous obstacles.
  1. Hold Firm to your vision: Even when others tell you it’s foolish or unachievable.
  2. Train Your Mind to focus on your vision: This doesn’t mean be blind to issues but don’t allow the problems distract you from the objective.
  3. Grow Stronger: Constantly improve your skills and knowledge, constantly question and analyse especially after failure
  4. Change: Be prepared to change 180 degrees if you are wrong, accept your failures
  5. Be Reliable: Be there, be seen trying, be consistent, and demonstrate that even small steps are still results delivered and failures lessons learnt on the journey..
  6. Complete the Task: Finishing the job requires the courage to hold your vision, an ability to think through and overcome obstacles and to persist when others would walk
  7. Never Ever, Ever, Give Up: Keep at it despite the obstacles, despite negative comment, despite the odds

Enjoy your day and thank you for stopping by the Silver Lyne.
