Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Serendipity Sundays- Follow the Turtle

Serendipity Sundays- Follow the Turtle

Serendipity Sundays- Turtles

I love watching animals and therefore my visit to the National Zoo was very exciting. Turtles are fascinating to me. I feel a kinship to them as to how they relate to real estate.

Turtles are slow and steady. They move with a purpose. Some agents move slow and steady, too. Some never leave their shells and stay safe inside where they do not grow and prosper. 

Turtles on a log

There is nothing wrong with being prepared and waiting to take risks but in the end, risk is needed to move forward. Have you noticed that a turtle doesn't go anywhere without sticking his head out of his shell? This means taking a chance and a willingness to venture out into the world. Without this risk, he will not be able to eat, enjoy his fellow turtles or get where he wants to go. Remaining in his shell will get him nowhere.

The same is true about real estate agents. Staying safely in a shell doesn't allow the agent to go and grow. We all have to take risks and be willing to get a rejection here and there but also be willing to get an acceptance. Have you taken a chance today?

Turtles are fun to watch because they don't run away very quickly. Realtors, on the other hand, are gone with the wind.

Hi Dave Halpern, or don't answer their phones or return messages.

Oh yes George Souto, I am slowing a bit myself. It's those birthdays.

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE®, to be successful we all must take risks.

Hi William Feela, you have many small creatures right in your backyard to enjoy.

Hi Debbie,
We can learn a lot from turtles.  The timing on this is interesting because I have a turtle post scheduled for Tuesday.

I like the analogy, Debbie.  I have taken a risk today and most likely every day especially when I am "working" in real estate.

Good evening Debbie Reynolds,

I love your photograph of the turtles and the message is so spot on! Great analogy..thank you for sharing with us.

Debbie, I also think this is a great analogy and love your message. Have a great week ahead.

Fall of the turtle and follow your bliss and slow and steady does actually pay sometimes quite a bit.

Debbie loved the message and indeed I have learned to appreciate sticking my head out more than I care to mention...but the times I did it always paid off in the long run, Endre

We are on the same page today with risk and change...necessary for progress !

Excellent analogy, Debbie.  I've met many agents who refuse to venture out of their shells.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) 6 months ago

That's a great comparison and a beautifully written post about taking risks and getting out of our "shell". Love the photo, too. Where is the National Zoo?

Too many agents think that they will be successful by having coffee at the office and lunch with the other agents who have no prospects.

What a wonderful analogy, Debbie! I have absolutely no trouble sticking my head out - life is more 'fun' that way! LOL

Hope you're having a great week!

Debbie Reynolds Your post brought back fond memories of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. They house a huge green sea turtle, Calypso, who can never be returned to the wild because she only has three flippers, having lost one to an infection. My son adored her. She never "lets" her condition stop her - she's as graceful as a four-flippered creature.
