Involvement = Impact was a humbling realization I had after a board meeting this week with the East Houston Fellowship of Christian Athletes. You can’t stand on the side lines if you want to have an impact on anything, whether it is in the real estate industry, an organization you participate in, or even in your family. Napoleon Hill wrote, “You must get involved to have an impact. No one is impressed with the won-loss record of the referee.” How many times do we find our selves standing on the sidelines of life?
How can you get involved in making an impact in our industry?
- Reach out to a new REALTOR® seeking help on how to hold an open house.
- Volunteer to teach a class to REALTORS® on how to utilize technology to grow their businesses.
- Be a mentor to a REALTOR® who is looking to grow their business.
- Find a local organization that is in need of volunteers and get involved.
There are probably more ways for you to get involved than you realize. The result of your involvement often can’t be measured, but should never be underestimated.
I was 16 and in high school when I attended a Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting. Two people who chose to get involved in my life probably do not realize the impact they had on me. The impact was life changing, and I can say without a doubt, I would not be who I am today without these two individuals taking time to get involved.
Don’t underestimate the power of involvement, and the significant impact that can take place. Be impactful in your real estate business and get involved.
