Hard Work Will Definitely Be Rewarded

Ruel, my officemate recently tendered his resignation to join his wife’s family’s business of acquiring and renovating vacation rentals. Based from their years of experience, getting a vacation home in Costa Rica is a good buy especially with its beautiful beaches, tropical dry forest and world-class fishing zone.

My friend shared that being able to turn a washed out vacation rental into a hit is the best part in their business; Time consuming, but definitely rewarding. It is quite fulfilling for him to see and hear people appreciate the fruits of his labor – which is almost inevitable because of the unique and appealing designs he comes up with. As I quote from a Japanese drama Hanazakari no Kimi Tachi e, “Hard work will definitely be rewarded. The rest is to believe in yourself.”

Importance of Goals and Visualization

It is important for a person to have a goal. It doesn’t matter if your goal is to have your own gmc envoy, own a company, or simply have a decent job. Goals give you a sense of direction and purpose in life.

It helps you get through those “my life is in shambles” and “I’m better off dead” moments that are often times inevitable. I should know; I’ve been there.

Having goals also helps you appreciate life more. It reminds you that no matter how wretched your life may seem right now, you know that it is just a phase and that things will get better. As Rhonda Byrne puts it, “The reason visualization is so powerful is because as you create pictures in your mind of seeing yourself with what it is you want, you are generating thoughts and feelings of having it now. Visualization is simply powerfully focused thought in pictures, and it causes equally powerful feelings.”

on selling techniques

I think selling techniques are basically the same in every country, except there are different cultures that have different methods of negotiating. But real estate is the same, whether it happens to be in Australia or if it happens to be in New York.

on risks and real estate

Every day, you’ll have opportunities to take chances and to work outside your safety net. Sure, it’s a lot easier to stay in your comfort zone.. in my case, business suits and real estate.. but sometimes you have to take risks. When the risks pay off, that’s when you reap the biggest rewards.
