Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…this week I am happy to share some exciting news! I have been invited to be a guest instructor for the newest REALTOR training, the Certified Listing Agent offered by Rebus University. I was one of eight real estate agents who gave their entire unedited listing presentation on film – talk about being under pressure!

As many of you know, I am constantly looking for ways to give back to my community and to my fellow professionals. As a co-owner of RE/MAX Professionals we strive to provide our agents with the best learning experiences to help them grow as individuals and professionals. It is an honor to be among the best-of-the-best and a privilege to be a guest instructor. If you are a real estate agent reading this email, please visit me on Facebook for a limited-time offer to received 50 percent off the cost of the course. And to my clients reading this email, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to perfect my listing presentation – because of you, I am able to give back to my industry! Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

The 3M Company encourages creativity from its employees. The company allows its researchers to spend 15 percent of their time on any project that interests them. This attitude has brought fantastic benefits not only to the employees but to the 3M Company itself Many times, a spark of an idea turned into a successful product has boosted 3M's profits tremendously.

Some years ago, a scientist in 3M's commercial office took advantage of this 15 percent creative time. This scientist, Art Fry, came up with an idea for one of 3M's best-selling products. It seems that Art Fry dealt with a small irritation every Sunday as he sang in the church choir. After marking his pages in the hymnal with small bits of paper, the small pieces would invariably fall out all over the floor.

Suddenly, an idea struck Fry. He remembered an adhesive developed by a colleague that everyone thought was a failure because it did not stick very well. "I coated the adhesive on a paper sample," Fry recalls, "and I found that it was not only a good bookmark, but it was great for writing notes. It will stay in place as long as you want it to, and then you can remove it without damage."

Yes, Art Fry hit the jackpot. The resulting product was called Post-it! and has become one of 3M's most successful office products.

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…in light of the tragic events which have happened across the nation this last few weeks, I would like to take a moment to remember and recognize those who have died or have been wounded during these history-making events. Each of you represents the whole and while we may not agree on everything, it doesn’t mean that we can’t find a way to peacefully co-exist. This week I challenge you to seek out a way to make a positive difference in your community, with your family or in an area of your life that needs some improvement. We are all in this together…and to quote my friend and business partner, Frank Russo, “let’s be kind to each other.” Let’s make it a great week!

Ten Rules for the Good Life by Thomas Jefferson

1) Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

2) Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.

3) Never spend your money before you have it.

4) Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap; it will never be dear to you.

5) Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.

6) Never repent of having eaten too little.

7) Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.

8) Don't let the evils which have never happened cost you pain.

9) Always take things by their smooth handle.

10) When angry, count to ten before you speak; if very angry, count to one hundred.

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…Happy Fourth of July to each of you reading this email! What a perfect day to reflect on our great country and what it means to have our freedom. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” as quoted by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, has so much more meaning on a day like today. I hope that you will take a few moments today to remember those who have gone before us to protect our rights, those who have sacrificed their lives and those who will continue to battle so that we may call ourselves free. From my family to yours, we wish you a very happy and safe Fourth of July Celebration! Let’s make it a great week!

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…my inspiration for today’s message comes from a short video I watched on Facebook last Friday. Thank you to my colleague Roberta for sharing! Our thoughts shape our attitude and our perception of what is good or bad, shapes our reality. And this couple gives us a great example of how thinking positive can lead to amazing opportunities…

While celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, Gracie and Walter Lantz shared the story of their honeymoon “fail” that ended up being the best thing to ever happen to them. They had rented a quaint cabin in the woods for their honeymoon, only to have it rudely interrupted by the noise of pesky woodpeckers, who eventually caused a leak in the roof. Instead of leaving the cabin with the belief that their honeymoon had been ruined, they asked “what if this is an opportunity?”

That young couple returned home from their honeymoon and went on to create cartoon history with the lovable character known as Woody the Woodpecker. If they had believed that their honeymoon was ruined, they would have failed to see the opportunity to be positive which ended up being the best thing that ever happened to them. Because they choose to see the positive, they made something negative a success – a huge success. Our perception shapes our reality. Think positive, and positive things will happen. Let’s make it a great week!

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” - Audrey Hepburn

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Cleveland this is for you!” LeBron James

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…as they say, history has been made in yesterday’s exciting basketball game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. LeBron James played the game of his career which resulted in a 93-89 win for Cleveland – the first franchise championship in history and the first sports win for the city since 1964. I can only imagine the happiness and pride that everyone in Cleveland and the state of Ohio are feeling today! Which has inspired my message for today…what makes someone a champion? What creates a “winning team?” I love all kinds of sports, and I enjoy finding ways to connect my team and my business to the way a professional sports team goes about becoming champions. So this week’s challenge…do you have the heart of a champion? If so, what can you do to study, practice and improve upon your skills, your game? How can you level-up to be the best you can be? Let’s make it a great week!  

ENCOURAGMENT CORNER

Promise Yourself:

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind;
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet;
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them;
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true;
To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best;
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own;
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future;
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile;
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others;
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear; and too happy to permit the presence of trouble;
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds;
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.” - Samuel Johnson

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…we all have a story, and these days you hardly meet someone who hasn’t suffered a traumatic, painful experience in their life. Even the richest man can be sad and lonely, while the homeless man maybe the most generous, even though it appears he has nothing to give. My point is…we all have story and a story that should demand compassion and kindness. It is far too easy to judge something we do not understand. One of my greatest mentors, Howard Brinton used to say “get out of judgement and into curiosity.” And as I have grown wiser in my old age, I have come to understand that this statement can apply to all areas of life. This week, let’s go out of our way to express a little extra compassion and kindness. The world needs it. Let’s make it a great week!  

ENCOURAGMENT CORNER

If You Think You Can, by Walter D. Wintle

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't!
If you want to win, but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost;
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will;
It's all in the state of the mind.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger and faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” - Jim Valvano

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…hard to believe we are already into the month of June and summer is definitely here! Next Sunday is Father’s Day and naturally, one of my favorite days to celebrate with my family. Being a father has taught me some of the most important lessons in life and I was blessed with a second opportunity later in my life when Mila was born. In all my accomplishments, being a father to my three children has been the most rewarding.

While I don’t have a close relationship with my own father, it has served as a good reminder to be there for my own children, regardless of what it takes. Any man can be a father, but it takes a real man to show up day after day with love in his heart and a determination to create a good life for their child. I salute all those men reading this email who make a difference. Happy Father’s Day! Let’s make it a great week!
