I have recently been enjoying the book “Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action” by Simon Sinek. Whether you happen to run a team, a business, a family or your own life, I would highly recommend you give it a read! Simon invites his readers to ask “Why” rather than “How” or “What” when considering the important things in our lives and businesses.
I can tell you a lot about “what” our real estate team does every day to help people. I can tell you “how” we grew and “how” we do business. What will truly inspire you, however, is “why.” Why do we do what we do? Why do you? Digging… Digging…
As a wide eyed “20 something,” I recall hearing stories from friends and coworkers about their real estate experiences. Interestingly enough, they did not sound too happy about most of the on goings in their home purchases and sales. Their Realtors had often over promised and under delivered or had not represented their clients’ best interests in a way that showed them to care more for their client than a paycheck. “There has to be a better way,” I thought; and soon after hearing several such stories, I decided “I can create a better way!”
Through much fun, heartache, success, failure, anxiety, and market tribulation over the past 13 years, I have found that building a team of dedicated individuals who seek to serve at the highest level has been one of the most rewarding endeavors I could have pursued! Why? Because at the end of each day, we can say that every decision we make is in order to add smiles to the client experience. We are not a production team; we are a personal team. We love to make our clients’ moves easy and successful and that’s what we do!
What’s your “Why?” Why do you do what you do? I will bet that if you shared it with someone you just might inspire them-the world needs you; go and inspire!
