Kahlil Gibran, Chris Brogan, Nikki Buckelew and You: Rebels with a Cause

The Beauty of a Soulful, Real Estate Rebellion

Do you have a little rebel in ya? What about a Rebel Yell aching to scream forth?

It's funny how similar thoughts and philosophies can jump out at you in surprising succession. Last night, I read a portion of Kahlil Gibran's book “Spirits Rebellious” in which a character beseeches a village of peasants to rebel against the tyrants who have forced them into serfdom.

Then – only about 12 hours later – I received a weekly email newsletter from business relationship and Internet marketing guru Chris Brogan with the title “How Do …

Real Estate Sales and the Law of Least Effort

Written on May 19, 2013 at 5:00 pm

If you have ever read or listened to Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, you have probably heard of the fourth law, The Law of Least Effort.

This law says that nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease and carefree abandonment. It’s a lesson that nature has tried to teach us, but many of us just ignore it as if we are the exception to all nature.

As Deepak Chopra says in his audio series,

“Grass doesn’t try to grow... it just grows.”

“Birds don’t try to fly...they just fly.”

“Fish don’t try to swim...they just swim.”

“It is the …

To-Do List or Success List – It’s Your Choice

Written on April 17, 2013 at 8:51 am

A past client and business Facebook friend recently called me out on a Facebook status posting for saying that I have a “to-do” list. He preferred I say I have a “success list” or some other derivative of the same. Surprised that he would be somewhat argumentative about my system there on my newsfeed, I inquired a bit more.

It became clear to me that his response was correlated with some trainings I had given while working at my former company. He was merely feeding back to me what I had dished out multiple times in multiple venues to thousands …

Spreading SoulFire

Written on March 4, 2013 at 9:52 am

Just a short and sweet note of appreciation today. It's been so amazing to watch the SoulFire Series spread across the nation. Last month we were in Pensacola, FL and San Antonio, TX and this month in St Louis, MO - sharing SoulFire. People are calling me regularly asking about SoulFire coaching and training events.

What I am beginning to realize is that people need it. We all need it. We need to know that life is full of all the things we want and are searching for - fun, love, adventure, security, abundance, health, and freedom. It's right there …

Loving Your Listings

Written on February 14, 2013 at 10:16 am

I was asked to give a talk this week for one of the top real estate brokerages in Pensacola, Florida. Chris and I have known Audie Street, the manager at Mainstreet Properties for several years. He is one of those people you just can’t help but like. Audie is upbeat, energetic, positive, and thrives on helping his agents succeed. When he asked me to speak to his group on Valentines Day and said they wanted to title the talk, Loving Your Listings, of course I said, “Perfect.”

As I worked on the outline for my talk, I realized that …

How Much Is Enough?

High - achievers often believe that more is always better. 

They use this belief to create both their successes and their excesses.

Wanting more and obtaining more produces more.  Because societies often measure success quantitatively rather than qualitatively, people who do more and get more are deemed to be successful and honored if not revered by society.

The “success” of more also often creates a sense of “wunderkind” or “ubermensch."  The super successful believe in their infallibility and or their untouchability.  We see this on a daily basis in the …

A group of seven unemployed pilots are attempting to sue ABN Amro bank for being irresponsible in granting them huge loans to pay for their training, RTL news reports.

Tribute to Howard Brinton by Art & Anna Kleimer

Written by Art and Anna Kleimer as a tribute to friend and colleague Howard Brinton

Ode to My Friend Howard

 

Did a giant pass today?                                Only if we let him pass.

Did a smile fade away? 

Only if we let it fade.

Did a twinkle disappear? 

Only if we let it disappear.

Will we never again laugh to the Pig Story?

Only if we forget to tell it.

Will we never again sing Broadway hits together?

Only if we lose our voice.

Will we never split our sides laughing and swapping stories?

Only if we lose our words.

Will …
