Nate's Monday Morning Message Volume 985

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 985 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…the first weekend of holiday shopping is behind us, and we going to increasing pulled in many directions.

This is the time of year that gets to be very, very busy! We should be thrilled to have this opportunity in our lives however, I encourage each of you to make an effort to find a little extra time.  

Spend that extra time shopping for just the right gift. Spend that extra time listening to a child talk about Santa Claus. Spend that extra time making a few phone calls to those people you may not have talked to enough throughout the year; you will never know the impact you may have on someone’s life.

Let’s focus on making those around us feel happier, more cared for, and more loved. When we can do that, we ourselves will feel more fulfilled. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

I wanted to share a word with you that I think is very fitting at this time of year - BELIEVE. I hope that all of you share this wonderful concept with all the people you care about. I hope you all never lose this magical idea - Believe. 

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 2020 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? 

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.” - Steve Jobs

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.” – Saint Augustine

“Three things are necessary for the salvation of man: to know what he ought to believe; to know what he ought to desire; and to know what he ought to do.” - Thomas Aquinas

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 983


Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…This is the time of year that we should take a moment to consider what we have to be truly thankful for…down to the smallest gestures of kindness, to the rain that quenched our desert floor last week, to the fest that will be served this Thursday in most American homes (and some aboard for those celebrating outside the U.S.) Even if you are facing a difficult time, we can still be grateful for the loving people we know, the breath in our lungs and the opportunities that lie ahead in the New Year.

As we wrap up our month of gratitudes, I hope that this daily effort will carry forward into each and every day you have in the future. Let the people you care about, know how thankful you are for them; take time to reach everyone. Let them know what they mean to you and that you appreciate them in your life. Please enjoy this time, use it wisely as once its gone, it’s gone forever.

From my family and my team please let us be the first to wish you and your loved ones a very happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving weekend celebration…let’s make it a great week!

Thanksgiving Day Poem, Author Unknown

The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.

The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.

Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain.

So open wide the doorway,
Thanksgiving comes again!

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.” – William Blake

“Thanksgiving Day is a good day to recommit our energies to giving thanks and just giving.”  – Amy Grant

“An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.” - Irv Kupcinet

“If you think Independence Day is America's defining holiday, think again. Thanksgiving deserves that title, hands-down.” - Tony Snow

“We're getting ready to sit down at the table and have Thanksgiving, and there's people that are not with their families. There are people that are in dangerous areas, putting their lives on the line to keep our country free, and I think that's something we should all celebrate every day.” - Guy Fieri

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 982 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…I am enjoying reading all your gratitudes and I appreciate the effort that you are putting into your thoughts on gratitude! And on that note, I want to share this thought with you today…we all have the ability through our thoughts and efforts to create something that has never existed before. And we have the power to chose what will be. I would like to challenge you to think about solutions, not problems. Think about how to make things better, instead of how things might be now. Think about what really matters to you. What you think about, is what you will do, and what you think about is up to you!

My gratitude today…I am in Maui attending a RE/MAX Premier Brokers conference and next week my family will be joining me for a vacation together on this island that is a slice of paradise. I am so grateful to be a part of the most recognized real estate brand in the world, and for opportunities to mastermind with some of the best in our industry…and I get to spend it in a beautiful setting! I am grateful that this amazing industry has afforded me and my family the option to travel and spend quality time together.

What are you grateful for today?

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Today is My Day

Today my thoughts are centered on expecting only the best and giving only the best. Today my mind and heart are open to new opportunities and I make the most out of every situation.

Today I will smile and act enthusiastically in everything I do. I will make every person I meet feel very important and I will show them that I care. Today my confidence is high, and I am willing to step out and take a chance. I speak freely to all those I meet. I know I have something valuable to contribute. I expect results today and my time is well invested.

Today I am one step closer to achieving my goals and dreams. I always keep my eyes focused on success and prosperity. Today I will sow good seed so that I will reap my harvest of reward. 

Today is my day!

“I am happy because I'm grateful. I choose to be grateful. That gratitude allows me to be happy.” - Will Arnett

Nate's Monday Morning Message Volume 981

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 981 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…my gratitude this week is for the thousands of men and women who join any branch of military service. I have a tremendous amount of respect for their bravery, honor and selflessness. We would not be the great United States of America if it weren’t for our armed forces and those who dedicate their lives protecting our freedoms. Next time you see a Veteran, buy them a cup of coffee or a meal…take the time to listen to their story and their service.

I’d also like to recognize my stepson Brennen who is currently enlisted serving our country. Thank you, Brennen…you are an inspiration and we are so proud of you!

What are you grateful for today?

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran

When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,

Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.

Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
"Thanks for what you’re doing
To keep us safe in the USA!"

By Joanna Fuchs

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 U.S. Military is us. There is no truer representation of a country than the people that it sends into the field to fight for it. The people who wear our uniform and carry our rifles into combat are our kids, and our job is to support them, because they're protecting us.” - Tom Clancy

“Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.” – Douglas MacArthur

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 980 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…I hope this email finds you well-rested and refreshed for a new week! Before we know it, the holiday season will be here and that got me thinking about what I love about this time of year, and the word gratitude came to mind…as we know gratitude is the theme for Thanksgiving but during the hustle and bustle, gratitude can quickly fade under stress. Over the next few weeks, I’d like to challenge each of you to start your day with three things you are grateful for…and to up the accountability, I’d love for you to email them to me! Let’s have some fun and create an attitude of gratitude throughout the month of November…I can’t wait to read your emails! Let’s make it a great week!

PS I’ll start the challenge by sharing three things I am grateful for:

  1. The incredible people on my team, especially Kristine who is the glue that holds us together!
  2. Tonya – she continues to inspire me to be a better father, a better partner and a better man!
  3. My children – I am so blessed to have three healthy, smart and amazing children who complete my world!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Parable of the Pencil 

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box. "There are five things you need to know," he told the pencil, "Before I send you out into the world, always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be." "One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand." "Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil." "Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make." "Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside." "And, Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write." The pencil understood and promised to remember and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Now replace the place of the pencil with yourself. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be. One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in special hands and allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess. Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life, but you'll need it to become a stronger person. Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.  Four: The most important part of you will always be what's on the inside. And, Five: On every surface you walk through, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue to do your duties. Allow this parable on the pencil to encourage you to know that you are a special person and that only you can fulfill the purpose to which you were born to accomplish. Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot make a change.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“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.” - Melody Beattie

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” - John F. Kennedy

“Gratitude is one of the strongest and most transformative states of being. It shifts your perspective from lack to abundance and allows you to focus on the good in your life, which in turn pulls more goodness into your reality.” - Jen Sincero

Nate's Monday Morning Message Volume 979

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 979 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…are you aware of the tremendous influence you have in this amazing world we live in?

You have the ability to make someone’s day. You can make someone smile or laugh - today. You can help someone with a problem or difficult situation - today. You can be the person that is always helpful, always encouraging, always thought of as someone people want to be around. 

Let's take some time today and this week to really focus on truly helping others on a regular basis. You will feel great about it and that help will come back to you when needed. Let's take the time to slow down and pay attention to what it is that we can do rather than focusing on what we don't have control over. You have control over what you do, right now, and how you do it. Remember we must always give before we get. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Just One - Unknown

One song can spark a moment, One flower can wake the dream
One tree can start a forest, One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship, One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea, One word can frame the goal
One vote can change a nation, one sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness, One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey. One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits, One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom, One heart can know what's true,
One life can make a difference, You see, it's up to you!

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“If human beings had genuine courage, they'd wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween.” - Douglas Coupland

The great thing about candy is that it can't be spoiled by the adult world. Candy is innocent. And all Halloween candy pales next to candy corn, if only because candy corn used to appear, like the Great Pumpkin, solely on Halloween.” - Rosecrans Baldwin

“Halloween is one day of breaking out of your shell, one day you can be completely expressive, where the world gives you license to dress up.” - Chris March

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 978 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…as we head into he holiday season, I thought it would be a good time to focus on our relationships and ask the question: do you treat all people in your life that are special, the way they deserve to be treated?

All of us go through life and with the hustle and bustle of living we forget to make sure we don’t take for granted those special people who are around us. It could be a spouse or significant other; it could be your children or your parents. It could be your best friend or a co-worker; it could be a total stranger. 

This week, I’d like to challenge you to take five minutes to realize that we are never too busy to look into the eyes of the person or people we love for just a few extra seconds each day. Let’s take five minutes to realize we are never too busy to spend just a few more minutes playing with our kids or listening to a story from our parents. Let’s take five minutes to realize we are never too busy to help a dear friend with a problem. Let’s not be too busy in life that we miss living it. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Echo or Life - Unknown Author

"A son and his father were walking on the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams, “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!” To his surprise, he hears a voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain, “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!" Curious, he yells, "Who are you?” He receives the answer, "Who are you?” Angered at the response, he screams, “Coward!" He receives the answer, "Coward!"

He looks to his father and asks, "What's going on?” The father smiles and says, "My son, pay attention.” And then he screams to the mountain, “I admire you!” The voice answers, “I admire you!” Again the father screams, "You are a champion!” The voice answers, "You are a champion!” 

The boy is surprised but does not understand. Then the father explains, "People call this echo, but really this is life. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”

“Your life is not a coincidence. It’s a reflection of you!"

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“The memories we make with our family is everything.” - Candace Cameron Bure

“People are basically the same the world over. Everybody wants the same things - to be happy, to be healthy, to be at least reasonably prosperous, and to be secure. They want friends, peace of mind, good family relationships, and hope that tomorrow is going to be even better than today.” - Zig Ziglar

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.” - Richard Bach

“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

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 977

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 977 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…last week we talked about fear and how to overcome those feelings. This week I’d like to focus on Q4 and how we can set ourselves up for a great 2020. I think a good practice for planning is taking inventory of what we did so far this year. Spend a few minutes looking at the great things that have already happened this year and all the amazing people who have come into our lives.

We use our past as a training ground for the future however, that can be limiting if we are using it as a benchmark for what we can or can not do. We want to learn from our past, but not let it control what we believe we can do, just because it has never been done before. We can all do, be and succeed at more; the sky is literally the limit. Dare to dream big and then go out and make it happen. I believe in you. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Building Your House - Author Unknown

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business to live a more leisurely life with his wife and enjoy his extended family. He would miss the paycheck each week, but he wanted to retire. They could get by. 

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but over time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career. 

When the carpenter finished his work, his employer came to inspect the house. Then he handed the front-door key to the carpenter and said, “This is your house... my gift to you."

The carpenter was shocked! What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently. 

Success Principle:

So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then, with a shock, we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we'd do it much differently.

But, you cannot go back. You are the carpenter, and every day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Someone once said, "Life is a do-it-yourself project." Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build the "house" you will live in tomorrow. Build wisely!

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” - Helen Keller

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” - e. e. cummings

“The essential lesson I've learned in life is to just be yourself. Treasure the magnificent being that you are and recognize first and foremost you're not here as a human being only. You're a spiritual being having a human experience.” - Wayne Dyer

Nate's Monday Morning Message Volume 976

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…anything is possible, you are possible…did you commit to mastery this week? Did you commit to yourself; to your dreams and goals? Do you really believe that anything is possible? Or are you like many people who live in fear of pursuing their dreams and goals? Daily I see people within my company who are literally paralyzed by fear…fear of rejection, fear that they lack enough skill, fear that there isn’t enough business. So today, I’d like to share an acronym with you about the word fear.

FEAR:
(F) False
(E) Evidence
(R) Appearing
(R) Real

False evidence appearing real, just like anything we make-up in our minds, whether it is true or false, the feeling we attach to it, determines whether it is good or bad…or in other words, fear or happiness. Most people fail to realize that fear has the exact same emotional feeling in our bodies as excitement or happiness does. Fear can stop us dead in our tracks, while excitement can drive us to greatness. You get to decide…fear or excitement? I hope this week you choose excitement. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

The Elephant Rope

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.” – Norman Vincent Peale

“Fear is a powerful beast. But we can learn to ride it.” - Justine Musk

“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
