“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” – Michael Jordan
Wow, a lot has happened since I last posted something on my blog. Believe it or not, I feel guilty for not posting in the past three weeks, but I have been very busy. I’ve changed firms and in so doing had to learn a new platform for working with my leads. I’m still trying to find a place for all the stuff I brought home from my office and I am also learning the Equator platform for dealing with short sales. One good thing is I did get all my files straightened out, so at least I can find a document when I need one. To top things off, I’ve got my foot in an air cast. It seems that it’s not broken, it’s a torn ligament. I think I would have been better off breaking something. Oh well this too shall pass.
I find it truly amazing that a small firm can get so many leads and a large firm such as the one I left, only gets a few leads per month. So far in the three weeks I’ve been with this firm, I have received about 100 leads. Even if only 10% pan out – that’s 10% more than I would have had with the firm I was with before.
Now that I’m getting the hang of utilizing the lead platform, I believe I will be able to find some time to get back to blogging. I actually miss blogging. I didn’t think blogging would get under my skin the way it did but it sure has; although there are times I struggle with what to write.
For this evening, I would like to leave you with something to ponder. It is Werner Erhard’s definition of responsibility.
“Responsibility starts with the willingness to experience yourSelf as cause.
It starts with the willingness to have the experience of yourSelf as cause in the matter.
Responsibility is not burden, fault, praise, blame, credit, shame, or guilt. All of these include judgments and evaluations of good and bad, right and wrong, or better and worse. They are not responsibility. They are derived from a ground of being in which Self is considered to be a thing or an object rather than context.
Responsibility starts with the willingness to deal with a situation from and with the point of view, whether at the moment realized or not, that you are the source of what you are, what you do, and what you have. This point of view extends to include even what is done to you and ultimately what another does to another.
Ultimately, responsibility is a context – a context of Self as source – for the content, i.e., for what is.”
