Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! Cooler temperatures are right around the corner here in the Valley of the Sun, and the gorgeous fall weather is why we bare the extreme heat during the summer months. We can learn a lot from the Arizona weather; just like our passions in life, our goals and dreams, they require sacrifice. The summer heat can be miserable, but we forge on because we know that the reward is some of the best weather in the country. Are you willing to get uncomfortable in order to make the changes you want to see in your life? Are you willing to sacrifice in order to reap the rewards of your hard work? Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

As you know our goal for the Month of Miracles was $10,000 and we exceeded that goal by $5,000! We could not have done this without your support – THANK YOU!!!

“Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.” - David Joseph Schwartz

“There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.” - Gilbert K. Chesterton

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message. It is September 11, or in other words a date that will forever be remembered as one of the greatest tragedies in American history books. While that sunny September day, sixteen years ago was filled with a tremendous loss and heartbreak, it was also filled with acts of courage, bravery, love and selflessness.

I hope you will take a moment to say thank you to the servicemen and women who gave their lives that day, and remember the innocent lives of nearly 3,000 people who died on 9/11/2001. We remember, and may we never forget.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
—Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

"For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter." —Deepak Chopra

“America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” —former President Harry S. Truman

“September 11, 2001, revealed heroism in ordinary people who might have gone through their lives never called upon to demonstrate the extent of their courage.” —Geraldine Brooks

“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.” —President George W. Bush

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” - Pele

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message. Success is no accident. The most successful people we can study fall well within the terms outlined in this powerful quote. Learning, studying and being a master at your craft are essential components. Your commitment to the outcome will help you persevere through the rejection, the obstacles and the temporary set-backs. However, the love you have for what you are doing in life is a must. Don’t settle for a job or career that doesn’t bring your joy or fulfillment. Don’t settle for goals that don’t challenge you. Don’t settle for mediocrity. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

One cowardly person came to a master of martial arts and asked to teach him bravery. The master looked at him and said: “I will teach you only with one condition: one month you will have to live in a big city and tell every person that you meet on your way that you are a coward. You will have to say it loudly, openly and looking straight into the person’s eyes.”

The person got really sad, because this task seemed very scary to him. For a couple of days he was very sad and thoughtful, but to live with his cowardice was so unbearable that he travelled to the city to accomplish his mission.

At first, when meeting the passers, he quailed, lost his speech and couldn’t contact anyone. But he needed to finish the master’s task, so he began to overcome himself. When he came up to his first passer to tell about his cowardice, it seemed to him that he would die from fear. But his voice sounded louder and more confident with every passing day.

Suddenly came a moment, when the man caught himself thinking that he’s not scared anymore, and the further he continued doing the master’s task, the more convinced he was that the fear was abandoning him. That way a month had passed. The person came back to the master, bowed to him and said: “Thank you, teacher. I finished your task. Now I’m not afraid anymore. But how did you know that this strange task will help me?”

“The thing is that cowardice is only a habit. And by doing the things that scare us, we can destroy the stereotypes and come to a conclusion that you came to. And now you know that bravery – is also a habit. And if you want to make bravery a part of yourself- you need to move forward into the fear. Then the fear will go away, and bravery will take its place.”

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message. Across the state and country, kids and parents are getting back to the school routines, and before we know it the summer temps will be cooling and summer will be officially over. The first days of a new school year are buzzing with excited kids, fresh attitudes and teachers prepared to go above and beyond. As we watch our children learn and grow, we can be reminded that it’s never too late to learn something new. What do you want to learn today? Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Pauline Jambard Became My Family

I was nine when I arrived at the Children’s Home in Nashua, New Hampshire, in 1965. I failed third grade that year, barely made it through a second time, and had squeaked through fourth grade by the time I reached Pauline Jambard’s fifth-grade class at Charlotte Avenue Elementary School.

I was convinced I wasn’t “smart” like the other kids, and I hoped I could make it through fifth grade. Ms. Jambard took an instant liking to me. Of all the subjects in school, reading was my favorite. She would tell me, “Terry, you keep reading. If you can understand what you’re reading, you’ll be smarter than most kids.” After I read all the books in our program, I started reading the classroom’s set of Encyclopedia Britannica. I couldn’t find enough to read, and I started to really like school.

That December, the children’s home threw a Christmas party for family and community members. My brother and I had no family to invite. I still remember looking up and seeing Ms. Jambard walk through the front doors of the children’s home and realizing she was there to see me. That was the best Christmas of my life.

After I graduated from Ms. Jambard’s class in 1969, my brother and I moved, and I lost all touch with my teacher. In 1983, I was on a business trip and had to drive through Nashua. I took a chance and dropped by Charlotte Avenue Elementary. I was walking toward her classroom when she came out in the hallway and said, “Terry!” It was as if I had never left. I was in seventh heaven on my flight home.

We have stayed in touch, and I call Pauline at least once a year. Because of the confidence she instilled in me, I went on to have a successful career in engineering and law enforcement. I don’t know if Pauline realizes how much she helped me, but I’ll never forget her kindness and faith in me. Terry Fallon, Bellemont, Arizona

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

The Month of Miracles kicked off last week, and we are excited about our 3rd Annual One Million Penny fundraiser! This year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary that RE/MAX agents across the US and Canada have been supporting Children’s Miracle Network. One in four Arizona children will be treated at our local Phoenix Children’s Hospital next year. Each donation we receive helps to fund pediatric medical equipment, treatments, charitable care and other healthcare services for local CMN hospitals. As the contributions continue to grow, we are able to aid a larger number of sick and injured children, which is something we take great pride in being able to do for our community. 

Please help us reach our goal of one million pennies for the Month of Miracles. You can drop by any one of our five office locations to participate in our fundraising efforts, or click here to make a donation online. Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” Socrates

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! As I prepare for this week, this quote reminds me that we must inspect what we expect in our lives. What does that mean? If you expect to get results from something in your life, it needs to be tracked, examined and measured. If you spending money on a lead generating system, is it producing the results you expect? If you are paying a trainer at the gym, can you see the results of your efforts? Your goals, in business or at home, must be tracked, examined and measured. This week I challenge you examine your life. What gets measured, gets done. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

The Obstacle in our Path

There once was a very wealthy and curious king. This king had a huge boulder placed in the middle of a road. Then he hid nearby to see if anyone would try to remove the gigantic rock from the road.

The first people to pass by were some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers. Rather than moving it, they simply walked around it. A few loudly blamed the King for not maintaining the roads. Not one of them tried to move the boulder.

Finally, a peasant came along. His arms were full of vegetables. When he got near the boulder, rather than simply walking around it as the others had, the peasant put down his load and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. It took a lot of effort but he finally succeeded.

The peasant gathered up his load and was ready to go on his way when he say a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The peasant opened the purse. The purse was stuffed full of gold coins and a note from the king. The king’s note said the purse’s gold was a reward for moving the boulder from the road.

The king showed the peasant what many of us never understand: every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! Did you know that within five years, one in four Arizona children will have received care from Phoenix Children’s Hospital? 135,000 unique patients were treated last year, 188,000 physician appointments and 53,000 urgent care visits.  

Since 1992, RE/MAX agents and brokers have invested in the well-being of their local communities by raising more than $150 million for 170 CMN Hospitals. We are excited to announce that our offices will be participating in our third annual Month of Miracles throughout the month of August. This is a month-long fundraising event is designed to raise much-need money to support our local Phoenix Children’s Hospital as well as raise awareness in our community.

Our goal is to raise ONE MILLION PENNIES next month, which is $10,000. Last year, RE/MAX Professionals was recognized by Children’s Miracle Network for having donated over $40,000 to our local PCH, which is the highest contributing RE/MAX Office in the Southwest Region (Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico).

The Month of Miracles kicks off next week, on August 1st. If you are a RE/MAX Professionals’ agent reading this email today, I hope you will join us in our efforts. And if you are a client, family member or friend, we invite you to stop by any of our five office locations and empty your piggy banks. Many of you have had a child or a loved one treated at PCH. Help us raise awareness and necessary funds to help PCH continue to treat our valley children! Let’s make it a great week!

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! If you could have anything in the world, what would it be? Last year I attended a small conference in Sedona, Arizona and as the ice-breaker the speaker asked this question of the group. A variety of answers were given, but the one that stood out was time. Time is our only limited recourse. So how we spend the days that make our hours, our days, our weeks should be spent well, because you will never get this moment back. How will you spend your day? Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

A Very Special Bank Account

Imagine you had a bank account that deposited $86,400 each morning. The account carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day!

We all have such a bank. Its name is Time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever time you have failed to use wisely. It carries over no balance from day to day. It allows no overdraft so you can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than you have. Each day, the account starts fresh. Each night, it destroys an unused time. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, it’s your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.

There is never any borrowing time. You can’t take a loan out on your time or against someone else’s. The time you have is the time you have and that is that. Time management is yours to decide how you spend the time, just as with money you decide how you spend the money. It is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of whether we want to do them and where they fall in our priorities.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.” - Steve Jobs

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.” - Rabindranath Tagore

“A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” - Henry Ford

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” - Steve Jobs

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” - Thomas A. Edison
