Maria Mak-Burnaby Real Estate -Stop focusing on your competition, focus on YOU

By Maria Mak - Sut... on January 27, 2014 - 10:55pm

Jim Rohn said it best when he said, “Don’t wish for things to be easier, wish for YOU to be better!” This is advice I think a lot of us could use more in our lives. If you study the law of attraction, you learn that when you worry and focus on your competition, you attract more competition, SO STOP DOING IT!

If you subscribe to the idea that there is plenty of whatever it is you do out there for everyone, you stop worrying about competition. When I am out and about at events and businesses, I hear a lot of business owners and real estate professionals talk about their competition, and typically in a negative way.

There are two main reasons not to do this. Number one is if you subscribe to the idea of the law of attraction, which I do, you understand that energy flows where attention goes and you focusing on your competition only creates more competition for you! A great example is elections. The media talks about how bad someone is and they end up winning!

The second main reason is when you talk about people or competition, you are reducing the amount of time you can think and talk about your own business. I don’t care who you are, your business can always be improved! Spend your time and energy thinking of how to make your own business better and that is time well spent!

When selling a home , the marketing effort must be coordinated on all fronts. It also must be superior to the competition. This is especially true in a buyers' market where the homes sitting on the market seemingly outnumber the potential home buyers. In such an environment, you must lift your home out from this crowd and highlight it in the best way possible. You must out-think the competition.  

All good marketing efforts begin life as a sound, basic plan and then evolves to fit the particular property and situation. Cut from whole cloth and then tailor-made, such a plan will incorporate innovative new ideas and "rearrange" old ones.

In Loving Memory of Nelson Mandela

In our smiles we have all seen the world’s children raised to open
their arm’s and embrace the future within a glorious freedom.
A light of knowledge you have shed
to help to see us through the days as never-ending dark deceit still
cowering within racism’s rawness as hatred’s blindness has burdened us
too long in this dark time’s age.
If in fervent striving, we have found heart’s fuller destiny beyond all decay.
We need only open up windows
and let our new breeze come to drift in and hope for a brilliant new
dawn to rise that never stops its filling smile.
For sun will sparkle forever its golden glow upon every once darkened soul.

Maria Mak - a poem for my beloved sis and pray for her speedy recovery

By Maria Mak - Sut... on November 3, 2013 - 11:50pm

 

steed grazing in the reed,

mist streaming from the ground, 

standing stonily in the favonian wind,

sobbing silently in the winter rain,

may i honor the secret of our sharing, 

Shining...

on your slumber and on your ardor,

Maria Mak - a poem for my beloved sis

By Maria Mak - Sut... on October 26, 2013 - 3:35pm

Walking deep into the roaring black ocean in the dark, 
Holding tight into each other hands in our dizzy merry go round, 
Dream on...We will be the last pair of tin soldiers to fall.

* a poem for my beloved sis*
