Seacrets Party

Hello all,

"Seacrets Party"

For anyone who is new to the Company on Monday Mornings I send an email about the market, office issues, shared ideas... and it is followed by an inspirational message from a service I subscribe to. I take a little time off from it in July and December.

The RE/MAX Seacrets party this year is on 9/8 starting at 7:30. We will be having an office happy hour before the party, I will send out information on that after the details are finalized. We enjoy the event and providing the tickets. The tickets are a bit on the expensive side so there are two rules I ask of you. 1- Please be 100% sure you are going to use the tickets you ask for before you let me know how many you need. Having tickets and not showing up does not work... 2- Please do not ask for tickets for outside vendors, these tickets are in high demand so Mortgage, Title and other companies look for anyway in the door. Please email me directly with how many tickets you need. 

Enjoy the coffee,

Monday Morning Coffee
"You can be happy without expecting others to agree with you." 
~ Kathleen Russell & Larry Wall, from "Achieving Your Dreams"
One of Garth Brooks' tunes goes like this: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained - sometimes you've got to go against the grain!" What is this "grain" we seem to fear going against? Chances are it's really what people will think about us for venturing in a new direction - not some immobile obstacle we cannot physically overcome.
Author/philosopher Wayne Dyer speaks on this topic in one of his programs. He equates our lives to being in a boat and watching the wake it leaves behind as it moves through the water. He explains that the wake is not what powers us through life, it is merely what we leave behind - our history - where we have been.
Often, the "grain" we go against is really someone else's "wake." Others may say something like "That's never been done before," or "We've always done it this way," or "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." That's their wake - not yours!
Do you have a dream? Is there something you want to achieve that others might not understand? Don't tell them! It's not necessary to tell anyone what you are doing or planning. If your plan is radical, "they" probably wouldn't understand anyway.
So - live your dream. Plan it, execute it, and enjoy it. Make your own wake!
