I'm Glad You Asked
Emails bog us down, articles and blogs come at us from all directions. My husband put me to bed at 9:30pm as I was laying in front of the TV or I could have been working, I don't recall. I woke up at 3:30 am, I tried to stay in bed but I was awake and had a long list of things I needed to do. Yes, at 3:30 am! I worked until 6:00 when I finally turned over on the coach, pulled up the down comforter and fell back to sleep.
Determined to clean out my Inbox I scrolled through 1000's of emails. This morning I picked up laptop back up, the screen was open to an article I wanted to read on How To Be Successful which I found by way of Entrepreneur, a magazine blog I subscribe to. At the end of the article the author asked the reader to make a comment if you were serious about your success. With that, of course, I had to comment. And I thank him for that.
A word from my Play Book:
Foundation 4 Success, On The Other Side of 25.
Rule 1 - Dream, Believe, Share, Achieve. Visualize, Internalize, Verbalize, Realize.
One must dream it, believe it, share it in order to make it real before they achieve it.
So back to the comments I wrote, taking my own advice. I hope you will pen your thoughts so you can be one step to realizing your own potential and dreams.
Rule 2 - Foundation 4 Success: Commit
I am a go-gotter, no question. I motivate myself. I am my only competitor. But I want more. There is always something more. The unknown inspires me. The person's story I have not heard yet, the charity I have not helped, the person I have not yet met. I'm interested in everyone and everything. I am curious. Some used to say I was nosy. But I know now, I just have an insatiable appetite to learn.
I am a successful Realtor in the Bay Area, but there is always room for improvement, to grow and to prosper. I am an author, I've written 3 book, all focus on sharing what I know with a goal to inspire others. The first book, Contained Beauty, Photographs, Reflections and Swimming Pools; the next, The Art of Real Estate and the 3rd, Real Estate Rules! 52 ways to achieve success in real estate. The later two books focus on guiding Realtors to success as well as helping Buyers and Sellers (book 2) and Real Estate Rules! (book 3) is poised for anyone interested in branding themselves, whether a Realtor or and Actor. I also hope to inspire my kids and their friends. My 4th book, Fabulous or Beauty, At Any Age, (working title) a beauty book to share with men and woman showing them all the various ways they can care for oneself, from yoga and meditation, to simply routines such as moisturizing and playing card games to keep your mind fit. My mother in law in almost 90 and her mind is sharp. Why? Because she is busy, she is active, she keeps her mind running. Use it or lost it, as the saying goes. Beauty is mental, spiritual and physical well-being. I hope to help others lead a healthy and prosperous life, whatever that means to them.
As there is never an ending to my book, I am also working on another vehicle to inspire others, through Foundation 4 Success. On the Other Side of 25. If I knew then what I know now. I've got the information locked up in a power point presentation but need help launching it. On a braver note, I have opened my Real Estate practice to Beverly Hills and the LA area, I fly back and forth as I am building my business and making new connections. I love helping people and hearing their stories, Real Estate and Philanthropy are two very important vehicles that allow me to find inspiration and happiness. How may I help you?
Fondly, Debbi DiMaggio
PS. Thank you for asking!
