Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to stop doing things just for the sake of doing them. Take a few minutes this week and think of all the things you do just because they are habits. Some of these actions or activities really do not move you closer to your goals or make that much difference in your life. Every once in a while, we need to cleanse our routines and replace them with more positive activities. Really think about it.

What do you do that really doesn't make a difference in your life or business? Change them today. Watch your productivity rise. Stop going through the motions and start putting energy back into your activities. This is a great week to clean the nonsense from your daily life and start doing things purposefully. We all have the same amount of time - What will you do with yours??? Let's Make This The Best Week Of The Year!

Life Is....
By: Mother Teresa

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

Nate'e Monday Morning Message

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to learn from the past and carry that knowledge and understanding into the future and share it with others. This past week was one like no other. The events of the Boston Marathon Bombing have made many of us feel many emotions: Sadness, Anger, Hurt, Sorrow, and Insecurity. These, along with many others, are normal and understandable feelings.

I do not believe there is an answer, or justifiable reason, or any sense of human understanding that would lead me to comprehend what happened. I believe that justice will be done. I believe that we need to help the injured and work relentlessly on making sure this does not happen again. I believe we need to be who we are: Caring, Compassionate, Selfless, and Giving. What can each of us do, in our own way, to make this situation better?

We each must answer that for ourselves, but there is an answer for each of us. I honestly believe this was a situation that will change us. I hope for the better. We need to be thankful for all those that helped make this time a little easier. We need to be thankful for all the Police, Fire, EMS, National Guard, Volunteers, Doctors and Nurses, and ordinary everyday citizens that acted heroically in a time of crises. Grieving will continue and healing will occur.

Let us not forget, but remember. Let us work to bring together rather than divide. Let us love rather than loath. This week work to find the answer to the question: What can each of us do to make this situation better? Let's make this the best week of the year!

America the Beautiful By: Katharine Lee Bates, 1913 

O beautiful for spacious skies, 
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Above the fruited plain! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
And crown thy good with brotherhood 
From sea to shining sea! 

O beautiful for pilgrim feet 
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare of freedom beat 
Across the wilderness! 
America! America! 
God mend thine every flaw, 
Confirm thy soul in self-control, 
Thy liberty in law! 

O beautiful for heroes proved 
In liberating strife. 
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life! 
America! America! 
May God thy gold refine 
Till all success be nobleness 
And every gain divine! 

O beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
And crown thy good with brotherhood 
From sea to shining sea! 

O beautiful for halcyon skies, 
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Above the enameled plain! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till souls wax fair as earth and air 
And music-hearted sea! 

O beautiful for pilgrims feet, 
Whose stem impassioned stress 
A thoroughfare for freedom beat 
Across the wilderness! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till paths be wrought through 
wilds of thought 
By pilgrim foot and knee! 

O beautiful for glory-tale 
Of liberating strife 
When once and twice, 
for man's avail 
Men lavished precious life! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till selfish gain no longer stain 
The banner of the free! 

O beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
Till nobler men keep once again 
Thy whiter jubilee!

The Portrait of a Typical Investment Property (it may be different than you think)

When it comes to real estate investing, there are a lot of misconceptions, especially where investment properties are concerned. Too often, real estate investments are associated with one of two extremes: run-down properties to be rehabbed and resold or exclusive, resort-like vacation properties.

While some do invest in properties like these, the portrait of the typical real estate investment property is much different. The following are a few statistics that represent average investment properties:

· 75% of investment properties are in small towns and rural or suburban areas
· 48% of investment properties are within 20 miles of the investor's primary residence
· 57% of investment properties are single-family, detached homes
· 92% are not resort properties

As you can see, the average investment property is a single-family home purchased near the investor’s primary residence. The reality is, there are properties with great investment potential in nearly every market. You simply need to know what to look for when searching for properties.

For most real estate investors, the primary consideration should be a property’s ability to generate monthly cash flow, or the amount of income (in the form of rent payments) remaining after expenses and mortgage are paid. By investing for cash flow, a property will earn money every month, even when not appreciating. This ensures your investment will continue to be stable and lucrative.

Earning cash flow on a property has many benefits that you simply don’t find in other investment options: you maintain control over how the cash is used, you can increase cash flow by cutting expenses or raising rent, and you earn consistent and secure income month over month, to name a few.

If you’re considering investing in real estate, begin by thinking about your preferred investment areas. Focus on areas near you that you’re familiar with and that have home prices within your budget. As an agent who is a Certified Investor Agent Specialist (CIAS) I am trained in the area of investing. I have the knowledge and skills to assess properties based on your specific needs and wants. If you or someone you know is interested in making an investment in today's market, please give me a call today. Nate

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of My Monday Morning Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to make a promise to ourselves that we will not break......Ever! We need to each promise ourselves that regardless of what life brings our way or what challenges we face today or tomorrow we will never ever give up on our dreams. We will never ever take the easy way instead of the right way. We will never ever give less than everything we have.

It is time for us to realize that life really is what we make of it. There is nobody else that can control your life like you. It is time for us to stop with the excuses, the nonsense, the finger-pointing. What separates the truly successful from the others is their ability to do this daily and to take positive action daily. Let these be your goals each and every day going forward. Let's Make This The Best Week Of The Year!

Why Not You?

Today, many will awaken with a fresh sense of inspiration. Why not you?

Today, many will break through the barriers of the past by looking at the blessings of the present. Why not you?

Today, for many the burden of self-doubt and insecurity will be lifted by the security and confidence of empowerment. Why not you?

Today, many will rise above their believed limitations and make contact with their powerful innate strength. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to live in such a manner that they will be a positive role model for their children. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to free themselves from the personal imprisonment of their bad habits. Why not you?

Today, many will choose to live free of conditions and rules governing their own happiness. Why not you?

Today, many will find abundance in simplicity. Why not you?

Today, many will be confronted by difficult moral choices and they will choose to do what is right instead of what is beneficial. Why not you?

Today, many will decide to no longer sit back with a victim mentality, but to take charge of their lives and make positive changes. Why not you?

Today, many will take the action necessary to make a difference. Why not you?

Today, many will make the commitment to be a better mother, father, son, daughter, student, teacher, worker, boss, brother, sister, & so much more. Why not you?

Today is a new day!

Many will seize this day. Many will live it to the fullest. Why not you?

Polished Proverbs & Precepts
Do not judge your neighbor unless you are in his position.
The early bird catches the worm.
Good things do not have to last a long time.
Even the longest day will come to an end.
Its not only what we give that counts but how we give it.
You will always fall short of perfection.
Leave everything a little better than you found it.
Don't bother to worry what others think of you.
Work your mind and your body equally.
There is a key for every lock.
Work harder than the opposition.
If it isn't broke, improve it.
You are in control of how you respond to others.
Every time you go to complain, stop and go somewhere else.
Learn something new everyday.

Nate's Monday Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to surround ourselves with people we believe in and people who believe in us. This is one of the most important things you can do to better your life or your business. There will always be people that try to get into your circle and use up your precious time and energy. You must realize that you are the only one with the key that can allow them in or not.

When you come to the realization that everything you do comes at a price, you will be more inclined to use your time and energy better. Always keep in mind, that if I do this that means I cannot do that. You can only do one thing at a time. You can only spend your time once and then it is gone. Remove the negative people from your life if you can. Do not put up with people that will suck the energy right out of you. Fill your world with love and peace, happiness and joy, energy and determination. Let's Make This The Best Week Of The Year!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER...

It Is Up To Me

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfill today.

I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body, and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped, and I am the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

Today, my attitude is the difference. I get to choose what kind of day I will have! It Is Up To Me.
