Have you ever heard the phrase “80 percent of success is showing up”? I once heard a guru speak who quoted this and said that when you get good at showing up to things, great stuff starts to happen. So, here are a few suggestions on how you can get started:
- First off, keep your appointments and be on time. This is a no brainer, but some people really struggle with this. Being accountable demonstrates that you are responsible enough for opportunity.
- Second, when you dream about accomplishing something, take a step forward. Don’t wait around. Get a plan and get going.
- Third, make the right connections. Why reinvent the wheel? Actively seek out people who can advise you. Learn from their successes and their failures.
- Fourth, be open to new experiences and perspectives. Try new things and appreciate other people. A fresh perspective might be just the thing to spark your creativity.
Basically, show up for your own life. An exciting, successful life isn’t going to be found while sitting on your couch. Get up, walk out the door and find some adventure!

Low inventories and higher prices are making it difficult for people around the country to buy houses, and preventing current home owners from moving around. Prices on the low end keep rising, but the ceiling is not moving as quickly. This means we have an increasingly smaller margin between our buy and our sell. Keep looking for deals, but be cautious and don’t over-inflate your sale price.
See you soon,
