Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message. It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a little more than a week away, when the temperature is supposed to break the records at 88 degrees today! The holiday season isn’t always the merry delight we see in the movies, and I know that many of you reading this find the season hectic and financially stressful. Below are a few tips to help you navigate this year so that you can enjoy the time spent with friends and family. Let’s make it a great week!

10 Tips for Surviving the Holidays

  1. Keep your regular routine.
  2. Think moderation.
  3. Be realistic, try not to expect the “ideal” holiday.
  4. Stay connected.
  5. Throw guilt out the window.
  6. Don’t be alone, if you don’t want to.
  7. Focus on today, not yesterday (or last year).
  8. Just say no.
  9. Ask for help.
  10. Be good to yourself.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it.” Charles R. Swindoll

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…90 percent of what happens to us is merely our emotions or how we label what we perceive…is it good or bad? Stressful or joyful? Rewarding or draining? However we label it, we ultimately get to choose. And I hope as you move about your week, you will think about this quote and how you can choose your emotions or reaction to what is happening around you. Remember, life is neither good nor bad…only your perception to your reality. Let's make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Choices

There comes a time in your life, when you must decide,

No help from anyone, on which you've always relied.

Between right and wrong, between black and white,

Between good and bad, to walk away or fight.

To be honest and true. to be open with your heart, Or to hide your feelings, play it safe from the start.

To sit back and watch, to listen and learn,
Or jump into the fire, taking a chance on a burn.

To stay. to move. to not care, or always prove.

To be strong, to be weak, to be aggressive, to be meek.

To laugh out loud with all your might, or smile a little just to be polite.

To stay together. to live apart. to think with your mind, or trust your with heart.

To live in the past. to always look back, to look ahead to the future, with ambition you won't lack.

Begun at the front. or start at the end, believe in your own self, or follow the trend.

To dream. to hope, to quit, to cope. To be a lover, to be a friend to be real, or just pretend.

Choices we make can make or break, to have to decide at all could be our worst fall.

Choices are sometimes deceiving, you can be lured by the sweetest bait.

So make your decision wisely, because to change your mind could be too late.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Happy Halloween! Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message. Ready or not, the holiday season is officially here, and hopefully cooler temperatures for the Valley of the Sun. As spooky as that may seem, the last two months of the year are full of opportunities - and there is still time to hit the goals you have set for yourself this year. Don’t put your life on cruise control through the holiday season! Let’s make it a great week!

5 Weird Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Hallowee

1. Originally, you had to dance for your treat. In European, the practice of “mumming” or “guysing” meant a costume-wearer would go door-to-door performing dances in exchange for treats.

2. Halloween is more Irish than St. Patrick’s Day. Halloween’s origin comes from a Celtic festival, and people would leave treats for the spirits that roamed the earth

3. Jack-o’-lanterns were once made out of turnips, beets and potatoes. Based on the myth of Stingy Jack, the Irish carved scary faces into these veggies to scare him away.

4. In 1898 Herman Goelitz Confectionary Company invented candy corn. Today, nearly 35 millin pounds of candy corn are produced each year.

5. Halloween was a great day to find your soulmate. In some parts of Ireland, people played romantic fortune-telling games, which allegedly predicted who they would marry.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“Halloween is an opportunity to be really creative.” - Judy Gold

“Acting is like a Halloween mask that you put on.” - River Phoenix

“I only eat candy on Halloween. No lie.” - Michael Trevino

“Being in a band you can wear whatever you want - it's like an excuse for Halloween every day.” - Gwen Stefani

“As a kid, there are some things you looked forward to. You looked forward to Charlie Brown during Halloween and you looked forward to Monday Night Football.” - Nick Ferguson

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! I just returned from three full days of training in the beautiful city of Salt Lake, Utah. After thirty-one years of selling real estate, I have never stopped learning and honing my skills as a professional. What is that saying…if you aren’t learning, you are dying? Every day we are given opportunities to learn, no matter the industry or profession. What can you learn this week? Let’s make it count!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

One man decided to reach for his dream. But he didn’t have enough strength to do it. So he turned to his mother. “Mother, help me!”

“Darling, I would be glad to help you, but I don’t have it. And everything I have, I already gave to you.”

He asked a wise man, “Master, tell me, where can I get strength?”

“It is said that, it is on the Everest. But I couldn’t find anything there, except the snowy winds. And when I came back, the time was irretrievably lost.”

He asked the hermit, “Holy Father, where to find the strength for realization of my dream?”

“In your prayers, my son. And if your dream is false, you will understand it and find peace in your prayers.” The person asked everyone, but the only result of his searches was confusion.

“Why are you so confused?” asked an old man passing by. “I have a dream, good man. But I don’t know where to find strength for its realization. I asked everyone, but there was no one who could help me.”

“No one?” A light flashed in the old man’s eyes, “And did you ask yourself?”

“Learning never exhausts the mind.” - Leonardo da Vinci

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. Albert Einstein
There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.” - Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.” - Jim Rohn

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! When I read this quote, I have a vision of a beautiful rose – a perfect shade of deep red and a sweet fragrance that is unique to a blooming rose. However, I know that if I try to pluck the flower I run the risk of sticking my hand with thorns that protect the rose bush. So how does this apply to life? I think it is simple: anything worth pursuing will have challenges to overcome. If you want to enjoy the roses, you have to be willing to navigate the thorns. Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message, and to the beginning of the fall which is the second-best time of year here in Arizona! As our days get shorter and the weather cools off, the fourth quarter is full of opportunity. Don’t put your goals and aspirations on cruise control. There is still plenty of time to buy a home, sell a home, go on a diet before the holidays, apply for a new job, buy a new car…you fill in the blank. There is still plenty of time. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

"Crispy air and azure skies, 
High above, a white cloud flies, 
Bright as newly fallen snow.
Oh the joy to those who know October! 
Colors bright on bush and tree.
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple and brown and gold.
Thy beauty words have never told. October! 
Scolding sparrows on the lawn, 
Rabbits frisking home at dawn, 
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain, 
All in harmony acclaim, October! 
Brown earth freshly turned by plow, 
Apples shine on bended bough, 
Bins o'erflowed with oats and wheat, 
And satisfaction reigns complete. October! 
Radiant joy is everywhere.
Spirits in tune to the spicy air, 
Thrill in the glory of each day.
Life's worth living when we say, October!"
-  Joseph Pullman Porter

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! All you need is a plan, a road map or in these days a smart phone with navigation, and the courage to press on to your destination. I like to call this your GPS (goals, plans and strategies). You would not jump in the car, and attempt to drive across the country without having a plan, so why is it that we go about our goals and dreams in such a manner? Your GPS also includes a support system, which is those people in your life who will rally behind you, and those who will show up in the precise moment you need them the most. This week, I challenge you to get clear, refocus, and create your own GPS. There is still time to make 2017 the best year of your life. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Just for Today

Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle all my problems at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires, I will take my "luck" as it comes, and fit myself to it.

Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do a least two things I don't want to do--just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, keep my voice low, be courteous, criticize not one bit. I won't find fault with anything, nor try to improve or regulate anybody but myself.

Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself, and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” - Nelson Mandela

“A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” - Colin Powell

“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

“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” - Langston Hughes

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” - Winston Churchill
