Thomas Jefferson’s Ten Rules for a Good Life.
 
Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
 
Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
 
Never spend your money before you have it.
 
Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap; it will never be dear to you.
 
Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
 
Never repent of having eaten too little.
 
Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
 
Don't let the evils which have never happened cost you pain.
 
Always take things by their smooth handle.
 
When angry, count to ten before you speak; if very angry, count to one hundred.

Garbage Free Day

by Denise D'Amico

 

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

 

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us! 

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, really friendly. So I asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!” This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, “The Law of the Garbage Truck.” He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage (frustration, anger, and disappointment, etc.). As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. 

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so… love the people who treat you right & pray for the ones who don’t. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it! Have a Great and Garbage-FREE Day.  

 

Let's Work Together.

LET'S WORK TOGETHER

All year long, RE/MAX agents have a warm, fuzzy feeling in their hearts. That's because over the past two decades and counting, agents from across the U.S. and Canada have donated $130 million to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. They donated more than $8 million in 2013 alone!

Here's how it works: RE/MAX agents can label houses as a Miracle Home® – or Miracle Property on commercial property. You'll notice them by the yellow Miracle Balloon logo on RE/MAX yard signs and as you search for homes on remax.com. Each time one of these properties sells, the agent makes a donation to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. RE/MAX agents working with homebuyers also make donations. Also, there are countless golf tournaments, auctions and other great fundraisers RE/MAX agents host and sponsor year-round – all to support the hospitals right in their communities.

And hospitals use the money where it's needed most. Each year, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in the U.S. and Canada treat 17 million kids.

During the summer – the hottest selling season of the year – is the RE/MAX Month of Miracles. Each August, agents raise even more money – and awareness of the good things happening at CMN Hospitals.

If you have a few more minutes to spare, you'll be glad you spent them watching this video:

 

 

Goals Matter

Goals Matter

 

 

A man was traveling and stopped at an intersection. He asked an elderly man, "Where does this road take me?" The elderly person asked, "Where do you want to go?" The man replied, "I don't know." The elderly person said,” Then take any road. What difference does it make?"

How true. When we don't know where we are going, any road will take us there.

 

Are You An Optimist or A Pessimist?

Are You An Optimist or A Pessimist?
 
 
 
You will perhaps have heard this very old story illustrating the difference between positive thinking and negative thinking:
 
Many years ago two salesmen were sent by a British shoe manufacturer to Africa to investigate and report back on market potential. The first salesman reported back, "There is no potential here - nobody wears shoes." The second salesman reported back, "There is massive potential here - nobody wears shoes."
 
This simple short story provides one of the best examples of how a single situation may be viewed in two quite different ways - negatively or positively. We could explain this also in terms of seeing a situation's problems and disadvantages, instead of its opportunities and benefits.

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help answer some questions: 
 
If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z 
 
Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26. 
 
Then: H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K 
 
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98% 

And: K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E 

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96% 

But: A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E 

1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100% 

Attitude Matters!!! 

Don't forget it!
