Measuring success isn’t always about what kind of car you drive.
The other day, I sat around a table surrounded by accomplished entrepreneurs who stood out because of their ethics and how they left one another feeling at this gathering. Their measure of success was not what car they drove or how many houses they had; it was more a matter of what makes a person who they are, what defines them.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many real estate professionals who are millionaires and yet very down to earth, while others who have the same change in their bank account, but lack in any etiquette whatsoever. I’ve known realtors who acknowledge that their business was handed down to them by their parent(s) and call them by their rightful title of Mom or Dad, rather than their first name and I’ve known others that act as if the growth of their business was their doing and their doing alone.
These are matters of the heart that differentiate us from one another. How do we form lasting relationships? How do we mend them if they’re broken? And more importantly, how do we come together among the multitude of differences that exist between us?
I’d like you to think about the end goal. How will your clients, colleagues or business partners remember you? Do you want to be like the CEO of a computer company who had material success but did not have the greatest relationships, whether in business or his personal life? Your stock market value is not a valid reflection of who you were, as a person.
I prefer to be remembered because of who I was and what I stood for rather than anything else. I aim to create my lasting legacy by making the world a better place before I cross over.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the real estate professionals that have made it easy to do business with as AGENTC grows in its 5th year. Without our clients who hold the same values and ethics as we do, we would be obsolete.
Beyond the smoke and mirrors of a few dollars in the account, the real mark of success is who you are and what you stand for. It’s being genuine and giving. That’s the only time I can say: “Look ma, I made it!”
