When I was in high school, I HATED being in school.
There was always something on my mind, someplace I wanted to be or I was bored with being there. I wanted to be out in the world enjoying my life. I thought I would NEVER get out of there!
Well that was a long time ago. Now I have a different attitude about learning. When I went back to school to learn about how to take the test to become a Realtor, I had the attitude that failure was not an option. I studied night and day(This was work!) then passed the test on the first attempt.
Later, after I was absorbed into business I was told I would have to do continued education. I had to keep going back??! YIkEs! Instead of thinking I knew it all, I found out that there was always a new situation to learn from in real estate. Every deal was a learning opportunity. School made it easier to understand.
I started going to many classes even if I didn't need the points. I wanted to be the best at what I do everyday. I wanted to be able to be knowledgeable about real estate. With each class I learned something new, networked with other Realtors and grew more confident that I knew a little about a lot. Maybe just enough to be dangerous! Haha!
Today is another day to be in class. I will be studying about how to negotiate leases on real estate. This is something I have not had to do in my business. My goal is to be prepared for when I do have to know. Knowledge is power!
Chanel will hold the fort down till I get back. So if you call leave her a message...
