Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties is proud to release Episode #60 of our Real Estate Redefined Video Series. In this video, Dan Forsman shares a special message for Thanksgiving.
Hello, Dan Forsman here…
I want to wish everyone a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving. This is a special time of year when we get to spend time with our loved ones and reflect on the things that we are thankful for. As I thought about that, many things came to mind.
I am thankful that we live in a country where we can freely worship and express our faith. My faith is important to me and I start every day with a Miracle Morning which includes prayer. We start all our company meetings with the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer. My faith inspires me to reach higher and sustains me when things get hard.
I am thankful for my family. My wife, children, grandchildren, parents, mother-in-law and my extended family. I am thankful for my home. And, of course, I am thankful for my pets. They are part of our family too.
I am thankful for our amazing Associates and Employees plus our clients and customers that we have the opportunity to serve. I am blessed to spend time each day with such a talented group of professionals. There are so many success stories and lives that continue to be positively impacted. I look forward to celebrating those stories at our Kickoff Event and Awards Events early next year. 2018 is going to be an exciting year!
I am thankful for my health. We often take our health for granted – until something happens to us or close friend, colleague or loved one. We only get one life to live so take the time to take care of your body. Life is like a vapor
I am thankful for our Armed Services and first responders. Their courage and legacy inspires us all. We must remember that freedom is not free and comes with great sacrifice of real people and their families.
I am thankful for the challenges we face. Challenge makes you better. It is not how hard you fall, it is how high you bounce. I am grateful for the bounce.
I am thankful for our competitors – especially the disruptors. New business models make you think and leads to faster innovation. Our company is working hard to redefine the real estate experience and bring new levels of quality and innovation. We have brought advantages to our Associates and clients this year – and we have some exciting things on the horizon for next year!
I am thankful for the complexity of real estate transactions. Because it gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our value, innovate and provide great service to our clients and customers. The American Dream of Homeownership is alive and well. The REALTORS who have the best skills and knowledge and build rapport will thrive in the years ahead.
Finally, I am thankful for the wonderful place we live. Metro Atlanta is a special place to live, work and play – which is why so many people are moving here. And that means we have a bright future for real estate!
I want to challenge you to Stop… and Reflect… on what you are thankful for. I know many of have your own Miracle Mornings and write down your gratitudes every day. Mindset is important. The challenges we face require disciplined thought, disciplined action and disciplined people. Having a grateful mindset will allow you to overcome your obstacles and get to the next level of performance in your business and your life.
This Thanksgiving, please reach out to thank your loved ones, colleagues and friends. Let them know how much you care and the impact they have had on your life.
Have A Safe and Happy Thanksgiving! And Remember … every day… in every way … YOU CAN get better and better!
