Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from John Lusink

Oh No! Christmas is just days away, with a brand New Year right around the corner! Are you ready?

It occurs to me, as I consider that Christmas is just a weekend away, that many of my realtor friends may not be ready for the end of 2012, or the beginning of 2013.

The past year has been a difficult one for many of us in Canadian real estate but, as always, it helps to remember that a new year is always a time of great potential and new opportunity. I have found that a positive mindset is one of the greatest keys to success that we possess, but it must be nurtured on a regular basis to be effective.

Happy Holidays from John Lusink

For me, the first step in maintaining a positive point of view, regardless of any problems in the moment, is to be appreciative of the success and abundance I am already lucky enough to enjoy. Beyond my successful business endeavors, I have a wonderful wife and four beautiful, healthy children, as well as supportive friends and associates. How can I not be positive about the future with these things in my life?

Next, I know that every day offers opportunity, as well as obstacles. I simply choose to focus on the chances for positive outcomes that will come my way, rather than potentially negative outcomes. After all, road blocks are merely momentary obstructions to overcome; they need not be permanent, while opportunities have almost limitless potential for improving my life, and the lives of my family.

Simply by focusing on the good things in life, we can improve our attitudes on a daily basis, making it easier to overcome obstacles and set them aside quickly and effectively.

To make this new year a Happy New Year, resolve to maintain a positive mindset in all you do, and you will make 2013 one of the best years of your life.

Here is to an ongoing and successful online relationship…
