Perceptual Blindness >> What does your perception tell you?

A friend of mine sent me this powerful video.  Please view it and then look at my comments below.


We focus our attention on what the media tells us is reality.  Most of us focus on what the media wants us to focus on and we fail to see the opportunity that exists.  Today, many Realtors are focusing on fear and uncertainty.  When we allow the fear and uncertainty to take control of us it is difficult for our creative minds to go to work and take advantages of the opportunities that exist.

When dealing with our spouses, significant others or co-workers how many times do we focus on ones faults or one event and fail to see the big picture that includes all the good traits of that person?

When someone tells us something many of us take it as gospel and then believe what we choose to believe based on what we have heard. The old saying that there are two sides to every story is oh so very true.

When we go to work in the morning or come home in the evening do we notice the incredible sunrises, sunsets or cloud formations or do we miss them because we are too busy focusing on traffic, our destination or talking on our cell phones?

Let us open our minds and look at the BIG PICTURE.  Opportunities just may arise from this new way of thinking.

The 4 traits of all successful Realtors
I started my real estate career in 1980 and if ever I have seen history repeat itself it is now, nearly 30 years later. In 1983 I sold homes with interest rates of 17 1/2 %. Realtors dropped like flies because the attitude was "I can't sell… more
