Wednesday Morning Match

"Shine like the Sun"

Okay, I apologize. I got a little bit behind with the long holiday weekend but I didn't want to miss out on providing some weekly encouragement. I just completed reading a classic book that all people involved in any branch of sales should read. It's by legendary salesman and author Og Mandino and it's called The Greatest Salesman in the World

I don't want to give away the story but it is a very simple to read book with a very sincere message. I think the following passage from Chapter 16 is especially meaningful for an industry like real estate.

"I will remember the lesson of the firefly who gives of its light only when it is on the wing, only when it is in action. I will become a firefly and even in the day my glow will be seen in spite of the sun. Let others be as butterflies who preen their wings yet depend on the charity of a flower for life. I will be as the firefly and my light will brighten the world.
"I will act now."

What actions will you take this week that will allow the world to see your light?
