"You've Caught the NET!"

YOU DON'T ALWAYS NEED RELIGION! But You've Gotta Have FAITH!

Hey, folks! 

Came from Chicago, down the Mississippi to New Orleans, LA . . . for the Keller Williams Annual Agent Conference, Keller Williams Family Reunion, 2010. All set to be educated, motivated, and inspired.

My headline today - you consider it Heresy?  Disrespectful?  Insensitive?

Repeating again . . .

YOU DON"T ALWAYS NEED RELIGION!  But You've Gotta Have FAITH!

So often, during tough times, and through the course of history, folks have relied on their Religious Faith to get them through tough times.  The Faith in a Spiritual Being more powerful than themselves.  Ever Present.  Omnipotent.

And, for many, the power of their religious convictions pulled them through rough seas, and on to the serene shore beyond.  Nearly without exception, tough times stabilized.  Struggle turned to success.  And success evolved into a flourishing, lasting business.

But not everyone is religious, you see.  I am not, never have been.  The same is true for millions of others, worldwide.

However, many of the non-religious find success.  Because they have FAITH!  Faith in themselves, faith in others.  Belief in the power of the positive, and the interdependence of those you love and those who love you, to get them through the tough times.

Over the last couple of years, Real Estate has been an up and down business for me and our Real Estate Team.   Months of "the high," sometimes followed by the depths of a weak Chicago Real Estate Market.  We have lost several Team members. 

And, these days, it seems you have to work twice as hard to earn half as much!

Perhaps you know of others in the same situation.  Or, perhaps YOU are riding in the same boat.

Opportunities for buyers, stronger than in recent memory due to dramatic fall-offs in home and condo pricing in every price range.  Disappointing results for Listed Properties due to incredibly high market times, lower eventual sales prices, heightened stringency for credit approval and appraisal, and fallen deals.

If times are tough for you . . . how do you find FAITH?  Do you look to God?

Or . . . do you find it inside?

I've gotta know!  We all do!   Can you share?
