Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message! This week, instead of me writing I thought I would share an article that was written about Matt Aitchison, one of the men who was on my trip to Vietnam. Please take five minutes to read this interview; he is an amazing young man that did not let his past determine his future and has a determination that personally I find inspiring. Click here to read.

After you read this interview about him, I would encourage you to check out his podcast at Millionaire Mindcast. It’s loaded with great interviews and content to help you become what you what to become, regardless of your profession. Every day we must work on creating a better "ME" so we can impact lives and help make this world a better place. Let’s make it a great week!

Our Greatest Fear by Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” - Sam Levenson

“In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.” - Nikos Kazantzakis

“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough." Og Mandino

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

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

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message! Over the last two weeks, I had the honor of visiting Vietnam with a group of amazing men. When the idea was first discussed several months ago, I felt a pull to go for several reasons, but the two most important reasons were the two men I looked up to as a young boy, my brother Ramon and my brother-in-law Benjamin.

Both this fine men served our country, and fought in Vietnam. They were forever changed from their experience, and both died young from complications related to their time in Vietnam. They left as young men and returned as causalities of war, baring scars from a conflict I am sure they never really understood.

I wanted to see first-hand the country that changed the course of their lives, and I was able to visit some of the war locations while I was there. It was a bit surreal and humbling, and to imagine what they may have experienced. I wish they were still here for many reasons, but now, I would love to talk to them about where they served in Vietnam.

They were my role models as a kid, and a part of me wishes they could be here to see the life I have lived, because of their influence, and because of their ultimate sacrifice to our country. My challenge this week is simply put: don’t wait. If there is something you want to experience, a place you want to visit or a loved one you need to call, don’t wait. Every moment in life is precious. Let’s make it a great week!

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.” - John F. Kennedy

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” - Dale Carnegie

“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.” - George A. Moore

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” - Harriet Tubman

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! Yesterday was a day of remembrance for many of us, myself included. As I reflect back fifteen years ago, I had a busy morning planned. We were preparing for our very first meeting at RE/MAX Professionals; we were officially opening our doors on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Frank and I were excited to present our agents with the vision of our company, and the goals we had set. This was it; our big day.

In between the morning meetings, I caught a waitress with tears in her eyes. Naturally I had to ask her why she was crying and that is when I learned a plane had hit the world trade center. As our agents filtered into the restaurant, the shock and panic was obvious, but I really had no clue the magnitude of what was happening.

In the midst of national chaos, we were able to band together and fifteen years later, I am still humbled and grateful. Our country stood strong, and so did the small group of agents who were the very first to be a part of RE/MAX Professionals. Each year I thank this group of agents, because without them we may not have been able to build one of the strongest real estate companies in the Valley. We have been able to help thousands of families since September 11, 2001. Today, RE/MAX Professionals has over 200 affiliates, and Frank and I couldn’t be more proud.

As we begin our week, please take a moment to remember the first responders, our armed services, and all the men and women who lost their lives on that tragic day. Let’s never forget.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! I heard on the news the other day that Labor Day is the beginning of the holiday season, which put the calendar in perspective for me. I love this time of year in Arizona, and the last few months of the year are a great opportunity for each of us to push just a little harder for the finish line. And how appropriate that we can have a small break, a day to rest and recharge before we dive into the last stretch of 2016.

However you plan to spend the long weekend, I hope you take some time to reflect on the year so far. There is still time to adjust your goals, reset and refocus. Anything is possible, if you dare to dream big enough and go for it. From my family to yours, we wish you a very happy, healthy and safe Labor Day celebration. Let’s make it a great week!

From Candles to Soap

In 1879, Procter and Gamble's best seller was candles. But the company was in trouble. Thomas Edison had invented the light bulb, and it looked as if candles would become obsolete. Their fears became reality when the market for candles plummeted since they were now sold only for-special occasions.

The outlook appeared to be bleak for Procter and Gamble. However, at this time, it seemed that destiny played a dramatic part in pulling the struggling company from the clutches of bankruptcy. A forgetful employee at a small factory in Cincinnati forgot to turn off his machine when he went to lunch. The result? A frothing mass of lather filled with air bubbles. He almost threw the stuff away but instead decided to make it into soap. The soap floated. Thus, Ivory soap was born and became the mainstay of the Procter and Gamble Company.

Why was soap that floats such a hot item at that time? In Cincinnati, during that period, some people bathed in the Ohio River. Floating soap would never sink and consequently never got lost. So, Ivory soap became a best seller in Ohio and eventually across the country also.

Like Procter and Gamble, never give up when things go wrong or when seemingly unsurmountable problems arise. Creativity put to work can change a problem and turn it into a gold mine.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! I hope this email finds you well and off to a good start for the new week. A few days ago I watched a quick video of John Assaraf, who is an inspirational speaker/teacher talking about what defines successful people. The key ingredient in those who succeed and those who do not is their ability to keep trying regardless of how many times they fail or how many obstacles they encounter.

The push themselves; if the goal is ten pull-ups they do eleven. If the goal is thirty minutes of studying, they do thirty-one minutes. If the goal is twenty prospecting calls, they do twenty-one calls. They go the extra mile to meet their goals. This week I would like to challenge each of you…whatever your goals are, whether it is healthy and fitness, business or some other personal goal, I challenge you to go the extra mile. Push yourself to do just one more, push yourself to commit to just one minute longer. At the end of the week, one more minute, one more call, one more pull-up will be seven more times that you tried, and times that by the month, the results will be exponential. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT 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 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! It’s officially that time of year again – back to school – which means we are back to the daily routine for everyone in the house and the fall temps promise to return soon! This year my youngest, Mila started first grade, and as we prepared to drop her off at the school, she promptly informed her mother and me that she didn’t need us to walk her to class. While it broke our hearts just a little, to see her walk away from the car with her backpack in tow and not even a glance back at us, we do hope she has this much enthusiasm for every day of school!

This week, I thought in honor of our all children starting their first day of the new school year, and the teachers who sacrifice their lives to the education system, I would dedicate this morning’s email to them. Whether it is first grade or a senior in college, education is an essential part of what shapes the future of our communities. We all have that one special teacher who left a special mark in our lives, and along the way teachers may show up in our lives outside of the classroom. Take some time this week to remember and honor those who have helped you along the way, and those who will help your own children. Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…what an exciting weekend of events happening at the Olympic Games in Rio! If you are like me, you don’t watch anything but the Olympics and skip between channels to catch all your favorite events. I have so much respect for all the athletes from across the world that are the very definition of what it means to be committed to their goals.

According to historical records, the first Olympic Games can be traced back to 776 BC, and they were said to be have been dedicated to the Olympian Gods. Today we are celebrating the thirty-first modern Olympics over 124 years of the greatest athletes creating history for those to come. This short video is a mix of some of the best Olympic moments throughout history. I am inspired by these amazing men and women…I am inspired to become a better version of myself, to become a champion. Are you? Let’s make it a great week!

PS Go USA!

“Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” - Mattie Stepanek

“Champions are not the ones who always win races - champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. 'Champion' is a state of mind. They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than they compete to best others. Champions are not just athletes.” - Simon Sinek

“The feeling of accomplishment welled up inside of me, three Olympic gold medals. I knew that was something nobody could ever take away from me, ever.” - Wilma Rudolph

Nate's Monday Morning Message: Month of Miracles

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message: Month of Miracles 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…today is the beginning of the Month of Miracles for RE/MAX offices across the United States. And here at RE/MAX Professionals, we are excited to kick off the month with a goal to raise One Million Pennies!

Since 1992 RE/MAX agents have contributed more than $147 million to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network, which has 170 hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. Our support has helped more than 10 million children who receive treatment at a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital each year. All of the funds we raise stay local and support our Phoenix Children’s Hospital. And our agents have been recognized several times over the years for having raised the most money for PCH out of all RE/MAX offices in the Southwest Region, which is a huge accomplishment and we are very proud of this recognition.

We are excited to participate in the Month of Miracles and know that our agents and our clients will help us get there. If you are wondering what to do with that penny jar that is overflowing, you can stop by one of our six offices and help us reach our goal of One Million Pennies! Let’s make it a great week!
