I have been tagged by Margaret Rome for my first ever MEME! Margaret asked me to find my closest book and follow the instructions.
Here is the way it works:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next two to five sentences.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book or the intellectual one. Pick the Closest.
6. Tag five people to do the same
*The one book that this can not be is the Bible*
Here's my closest book: CONNECT by Keith Harrell and Hattie Hill Keith is a "superfantastic" motivational speaker that had been invited to speak at an Allied Home Mortgage Capital Corp. convention in Houston. He spoke on Attitude. If you ever get a chance to hear him, grab it! He's fabulous!
from page 56 For some people change is hard to accept, much less embrace; yet we have been changing physically, emotionally, and spiritually since birth. Our circumstances and surroundings change day by day, even moment by moment. Think how boring life would be without change.
In this ever-changing real estate and mortgage market we all have to embrace change. Many in this market wander around moping like Eeyore (Woe is me, it's a horrible market, there's no business to be had) or hop around like Tigger (Maybe if I bounce around enough telling everyone how special I am, someone will bite). I think as the best of all agents and brokers we need to be like Pooh keep our eye on finding the Honey Pot. Focus on the right thing, surround yourself with good folks, go with the flow and we will be fine!
Thanks for the tag! I thought at first that maybe we all work with siblings since I work with my brother and my sister, and Randy works with his brother Russ, but when I checked out Gail's blog, there didn't seem to be any resemblence. Is is that we are all amazingly intelligent and quick to act? I don't want to spoil the mystery!
All the best with your new book! I can't wait to read it!
Now it's my turn to tag 5 more....
