Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…I trust that each of you reading this are enjoying the holiday season so far! For us there have been plenty of decorations, parties and holiday deliciousness! The story below highlights something important that I think is timely for this week…what we focus on is what we hear, see or feel. Focus on seeing or hearing the positive, you will begin to see more of it appear in your life. On the contrary, focus on the negative, and you will get more of the same. This time of year, is filled with all kinds of things to hear, see or feel…how will you choose? Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

The Cricket! Author Unknown

A Native American and his friend were in downtown New York City, walking near Times Square in Manhattan. It was during the noon lunch hour and the streets were filled with people. Cars were honking their horns, taxicabs were squealing around corners, sirens were wailing, and the sounds of the city were almost deafening.

Suddenly, the Native American said, "I hear a cricket." His friend said, "What? You must be crazy. You couldn't possibly hear a cricket in all of this noise!"

"No, I'm sure of it," the Native American said, "I heard a cricket." "That's crazy," said the friend.

The Native American listened carefully for a moment, and then walked across the street to a big cement planter where some shrubs were growing. He looked into the bushes, beneath the branches, and sure enough, he located a small cricket. His friend was utterly amazed.

"That's incredible," said his friend. "You must have super-human ears!"

"No," said the Native American. "My ears are no different from yours. It all depends on what you're listening for."

"But that can't be!" said the friend. "I could never hear a cricket in this noise."

"Yes, it's true," came the reply. "It depends on what is really important to you. Here, let me show you."

He reached into his pocket, pulled out a few coins, and discreetly dropped them on the sidewalk. And then, with the noise of the crowded street still blaring in their ears, they noticed every head within twenty feet turn and look to see if the money that tinkled on the pavement was theirs. "See what I mean?" asked the Native American. "It all depends on what's important to you."

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…today I want to share a word with you, that I think happens to be rather fitting this time of year: believe.

Children are a great example of belief, especially when they are filled with the magic of the holiday season. But you don’t have to be a child to believe…I hope that after you read the encouragement corner below, that you will never lose this magical idea: believe. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Believe (author unknown)

I believe we have not come this far to fail or give up now. 
I believe we are meant to go through storms before we see the beautiful sun. 
I believe the kingdom we live in is unshakable. 
I believe family become friends and friends become family. 
I believe all my hard work will pay off. 
I believe 2019 will be the best year of my life so far. 
I believe I have the power to change anything I do not like. 
I believe collectively we are stronger than we are apart. 
I believe love is the solution to all problems. 
I believe time brings about opportunity and thought. 
I believe I have been put on this earth and in this position for a purpose. 
I believe I am capable of anything as long as I have the desire to do it. 
I believe I am who I am because of all the people in my life. 

What do you believe?

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…today and every day, we have the opportunity to be optimistic and excited about what a new week, a new month, and a soon a New Year will bring. What I do know is one thing: the newness in our life will only be what we make it to be. We cannot change some situations, but we can change our reaction to it.

We cannot change some people, but we can change how we think about them and how they have an impact on us. We cannot change a lot of things, but we can change a lot of things. Make this the week you set your new course. This is the week to make miracles happen or at least start to happen. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

One day a farmer found an eagle’s egg and brought it home. He placed the eagle’s egg together with some chicken eggs to be hatched. The little eagle was hatched together with the other chicks. He began his life like the other chicks and the mother hen. He followed the ways of the chicken; he ate, walked, crowed, and moved like all the other chickens. One day an eagle flying nearby saw the little eagle mingling together with the chickens. He flew down to talk to the young eagle. All the chickens ran away because they were terrified of the eagle.

The young eagle also tried to run but was stopped by the adult eagle. The adult eagle asked, “What are you doing here with the chickens? You are an eagle just like me. You can fly like me and your home is high up among the cliffs.” The young eagle said, “I am a chicken and this is where I belong, together with the other chickens. See, I cannot fly!” The adult eagle then grabbed the eagle in his claws, and with all his might proceeded to fly to the nearby cliffs. The adult eagle said, “I am going to teach you how to fly.” The flying lesson began and to his bewilderment, the young eagle discovered that he could fly.

Of course, he fell many times before succeeding. He discovered his true self with the help of the adult eagle, and never again went back to the chickens. We are all born EAGLES and are able to soar high into the heavens. We are not CHICKENS that stay on the ground looking for food, just for the day. We have a higher potential within us and we should realize it. In fact, we should be successful like the adult eagle, so that we can in turn teach other young eagles, who think they are chickens to fly. Someone once said: “The only way to help the poor is not to be poor yourself.”

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…I hope that each of you reading this had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day celebration! It’s a new week, full of new opportunities. Let’s plan to do the things we must do and plan to do the things we want to do. Take control of your actions and emotions and put them both to good use to achieve your dreams.

Often we lose sight of the importance of right now, however it is a good reminder that now will never come again; so do not waste it. Sometimes we want to hurry through a task or project, and do not give it our all. But remember, this moment will never come again. Make the choice to be present at all times. Give it your all, every time, every day no matter what you are doing. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Ten Tips to Survive the Holiday Season:

  1. Keep your regular routine.
  2. Think moderation.
  3. Be realistic and 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 be.
  7. Focus on today, not yesterday.
  8. Just say no.
  9. Ask for help.
  10. Be good to yourself.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” - Earl Nightingale

“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” - 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

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” - Leo Tolstoy

Nate's Monday Morning Message - Happy Thanksgiving!

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…as we prepare for the upcoming Thanksgiving Day celebration, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of my community, and for continuing to open this email every Monday Morning. It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve the real estate industry and the 5,000+ families we have helped with their homeownership needs in the last thirty-two years. From my home to yours, let me be the first to wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." Written Melody Beattie

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.” - Oprah Winfrey

“Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness and gratitude.” - Nigel Hamilton

“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” - Henry David Thoreau

“Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year because it reminds us to give thanks and to count our blessings. Suddenly, so many things become so little when we realize how blessed and lucky we are.” - Joyce Giraud

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…today we honor those brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives so that we may call our great country, “Home of the Free.” To those who maybe reading this, that have served in the military, let me be the first today to say thank you. Without your service, we would not have this day to celebrate. Happy Veteran’s Day! Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

The Best on Earth: A Veteran's Day Tribute

Written by Joanna Fuchs

If someone has done military service,
They earn the title "veteran," and more;
They earn our deep respect and admiration;
That they are special no one can ignore.

They sacrificed the comforts we enjoy;
The list is long of all the things they gave.
Our veterans are extraordinary people;
They’re loyal, dedicated, true and brave.

When terror and invasion were real threats,
They showed us they could handle any storm.
We owe our freedoms and our very lives
To our veterans, who served in uniform.

Our veterans should be celebrities;
They’re exceptional; no other group compares.
We’re grateful for the many things they’ve done;
They’re always in our hearts and in our prayers.

We owe our veterans support and friendship;
Let no one ever question what they’re worth.
These men and women served us and our country,
Our veterans--the very best on earth.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism.” - Alexander Hamilton

“The valor and courage of our young women and men in the armed services are a shining example to all of the world, and we owe them and their families our deepest respect.” - Bill Frist

“The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” -Douglas MacArthur

“It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.’ - Norman Schwarzkopf

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…this week and every week we have the opportunity to make the most from our relationships. When you think of all the things that you have to do today, tomorrow, and the next day, please remember that each one of these presents an opportunity for you.

It is not the people around us or the things that need to be done. It is the attitude we have and the reason we do what we do. We are all blessed with tremendous opportunity. What we do with it is completely up to us. Yes, there will be challenges; there always are. Yes, there may be disappointments; there sometimes is. Yes, there will be tremendous happiness. There will be if you decide that is what you want. Let us have fun in all we do and let us make the very most of each and every opportunity that comes our way. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Give Me the Wind by Craig Nicholson

I am at my best with the wind in my face,
When overcoming the challenge, with pace.
The pace that requires more effort, more strength.
But once gained momentum, endures with great length.

It's easy to sit back, placid and calm
Comfort is only a relative balm.
It seems an advantage, better than strife
But is dulled by stagnation, stifling life.

Progress needs movement, energy, drive,
No chance for improvement if you do not strive.
Nothing's for nothing: cause and effect.
That which you work for, you've more chance to get.

So give me the wind, let it blow in my face,
The more I confront, the more strength I'll embrace.
Steps are not mounted, nor challenge overcome.
Without certain courage or effort be done.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.” - Maya Angelou

“People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.” - John C. Maxwell

“Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.” - Dale Carnegie

“A healthy attitude is contagious but don't wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.” - Tom Stoppard

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…it’s a spooky week for kids and adults alike, and it’s the official beginning of the holiday season! For me, the holiday season marks a time to spend with family and friends, creating memories that last a lifetime.

Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Mystic Magination Night!

On one mystic magic night,
Jack O Lantern glowing bright,
kids with bags of candy sweet,
Roam door to door and street to street,
all dressed up for trick or treat!

Wizards with wands, pirates with hooks,
monsters and clowns with spooky looks,

Kings and queens with capes and crowns,
a princess in her royal gown,

witches with warts and fairies with wings,
movie stars with sparkling rings,

vampires with fangs that bite,
ghosts that boo all dressed in white.

Imaginations taken flight,
on that one mystic magic night.

Oh, the fun of Halloween,
be young or old or in between.

Written by Patricia L. Cisco

Tomorrow we will be celebrating a special birthday and a very special lady that I would like to dedicate today’s Monday Morning Message to…I have been a blessed man in both my business and my personal life, but none of that would be possible without the support and love that I receive from my family.

Thank you for being there, no matter the late nights, the long trips or the interrupted dinner plans. Thank you for raising our daughter to be kind, strong, smart and determined. You handle our chaotic life with such grace, patience, love and with that gorgeous smile that still makes me weak at the knees, all these years later. If you have had the pleasure of spending any time with Tonya, you know that what I type is true and then some…so please help me wish her a very happy, happy, happy birthday!!! I love you T!

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…are you creating opportunities to make those around you smile? Regardless of where you are in life, you do have control over your actions and your thinking. As we work to make ourselves better, let us also work to make those around us better at the same time.

What can you do this week to improve the lives of your family, friends, or neighbors? Maybe it is just a simple smile, or a phone call, or lending a helping hand. I know that for each of us there is something that we can do. Let’s find a way to let the goodness come out and flourish around those we care about the most. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. Despite the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining. The doctor grabbed one and said, “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live,” and jumped out. The lawyer then said, “I’m a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live.” He also grabbed a parachute and jumped. The priest looked at the little boy and said, “My son, I’ve lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace.” The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, “Not to worry Father. The smartest man in the world just took off with my back pack.”

Moral: Your job doesn’t always define you, but being a good human being does.
