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!

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!

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

This week I am excited to share with you a local community event that my daughter, Brandi is volunteering for.  It makes me so proud to see my girl getting involved in such a worthy cause…and the woman who founded the organization, Finding My Shoes has an incredible story. Brenda R. Combs’ journey is being called “from homeless to hero” by local media, as she was once a homeless crack addict, but is now a symbol of inspiration and perseverance.

Inspired by her own story, the Finding My Shoes Organization was created to provide shoes and other care items for homeless people. My daughter Brandi is volunteering for a community event coming up on June 4th and she is asking for our support by donating shoes, flip flops and bottled water. She will be collecting donations at any one of our offices now through June 3rd. They are still looking for volunteers for the day of the event, if you are interested in getting more involved. 

I would encourage you to read more about Brenda’s ten years as a homeless woman and how she became Grand Canyon University’s first “Ambassador of Inspiration.” www.BrendaCombs.com. I am in awe of this women’s courage, her strength and determination. I hope that you will help support her cause and her desire to make our world just a little better. Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“The best way out is always through.” – Robert Frost

It’s another Monday Morning and time for Nate’s Monday Morning Message…the quote of the day seems simple but it is really quiet profound. Too many times we avoid a difficult situation because we don’t want to deal with it…or perhaps we are ignoring a potential health issue because we are afraid, or avoiding a conflict with someone we care about. But at the end of the day, the only way through a difficult or challenging situation is to walk through it with grace and a commitment to a positive outcome.

We are human. We make mistakes and sometimes we forget that because we holding ourselves to a high standard. Personally I hold myself to the highest of standards especially when it comes to my real estate business. But even I can make mistakes and fall short of high-standard-bar. I have learned over the years, and often times the hard way, that the only way to get to the other side of feeling good again, is to walk through it. This week, I challenge you to face whatever is causing you to feel fearful, angry, sad, lonely, anxious…face it head on and walk through it. You can do it. Let’s make it a great week!  

ENCOURAGMENT CORNER

To Build a Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge that spans the river tying Manhattan Island to Brooklyn is truly a miracle bridge. In 1863, a creative engineer named John Roebling was inspired by an idea for this spectacular bridge. However, bridge-building experts throughout the world told him to forget it; it could not be done.

Roebling convinced his son, Washington, who was a young up and coming engineer, that the bridge could be built. The two of them developed the concepts of how it could be accomplished and how the obstacles could be overcome. With unharnessed excitement and inspiration, they hired their crew and began to build their dream bridge.

The project was only a few months under construction when a tragic accident on the site took the life of John Roebling and severely injured his son, Washington. Washington was left with permanent brain damage and was unable to talk or walk. Everyone felt that the project would have to be scrapped since the Roeblings were the only ones who knew how the bridge could be built.

Even though Washington was unable to move or talk, his mind was as sharp as ever, and he still had a burning desire to complete the bridge. An idea hit him as he lay in his hospital bed, and he developed a code for communication. All he could move was one finger, so he touched the arm of his wife with that finger, tapping out the code to communicate to her what to tell the engineers who were building the bridge. For thirteen years, Washington tapped out his instructions with his finger until the spectacular Brooklyn Bridge was finally completed.
