We are seeing extraordinary examples all across the country of people helping people – often expecting nothing in return. Acts of amazing kindness are being spotlighted in a time when many really need those kinds of symbols of hope and humanity. Doing something for someone else, simply out of the kindness of your heart, speaks volumes about who you are as a person. When we help others, it gives them a chance to shine and you never know just how much that could mean to them when they are feeling low.
Helping others without expecting anything in return can bring lasting happiness. It can help you build long-lasting relationships, open more doors for you, and bring meaningful success. It shows your true character, which is who you really are; inside and out.
Service to others results in a life of less stress, less anxiety, and less frustration. When you help others with no expectation of anything in return, you begin to feel more fulfilled, more complete and more alive.
Something to Think About
Each of us has a reputation and each of us has a true character. Reputation is who people believe that you are. Character is who you really are. The goal is to have your reputation reflect your character.
How can you serve others this week? Agents across the world are reaching out in their communities to help serve and connect in ways they have never done before. The results have been incredible and for some, surprising. Just reaching out to past clients, friends, neighbors, and family have resulted in amazing conversations, reconnection – and yes – even real estate transactions. The focus is on the connection, not the transaction. Those will come! We are seeing it every day.
