Word Full Wednesday: "Selective Watering"

This is one of our favorite spots on the Carpinteria Bluffs.  We stop for a while and view the ocean and the coastline.  We hear the birds chirping, the waves moving and feel the sun on our bodies.  It is a moment of perfection!

Through the practice of deep looking, we can identify the positive seeds that we want to water every day, and train ourselves not to water the negative ones.  This is called"selective watering"  

-Thich Nhat Hanh-

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN UNDER 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in under 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

I love the quote, and will think of selective watering for my thoughts. Practice makes it easier and easier - and yet, some of those unwelcome seeds still try to wander in now and again. Ha.

I can see why that spot would be a favorite of your's.  It isn't overly developed, and seems un-messed with!

"Selective watering," is excellent advice. I love when a deep thinker puts words into meaningful ideas to ponder and practice. Thich Nhat Hanh's quote is PERFECT!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - you chose the perfect spot for reflection. I can understand why it moves you so deeply. It would give me reason to pause often in gratitude for life itself.

No such view in my area, pity.  Anyway, on the bright side we do have some wonderful views, just no salt water
