Home is less tangible than your house.

I’ve been practicing Real Estate Brokerage since year 2012 and lots of people I have met and most of them are my clients.

Some of them are looking for a house near where they are working for. Some of them are looking for a getaway home or a vacation home. And most of them are looking for a great place to live for their families and where they wanted their children to grow. It’s kind of what they want according to their environmental needs of life. Some of them are looking for a mansion, some condominiums and some are villas.

One day I am walking along the street, searching of what is really the meaning of a HOME. I took some photos and scenes in the streets, people walking in the pedestrian lanes, and took photos on Street and Creek Dwellers in Manila. It’s the other side of the story of what is really a home for individual person.

Home is a state of mind. It’s not what you wear, what are the things inside your house. It’s not how expensive you bought your mansion. It’s not how you are near to your workplace. It’s not the view of an old oak tree at your window.

A home is a State of Mind. Where your heart lives with it. Where your families have harmonious relationships. Where you eat your meal together and sharing stories from your workplace. A home is where you sleep together. A home where you have unconditional love NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. It’s where your faith and trust to your family.

Home is elusive. When we think about this word, we might picture different physical locations. And while home is often found on a map, it can also be less tangible: a loved one, a state of mind.

When there is energy, happiness and love. That’s a truly home is.

FEAR: Is it stopping you to decide?

THE ROAD TO DECISION

Making tough decision is the one that many people are afraid. Why, it’s the FEAR OF FAILURE..

4 years ago, I’ve made a decision for a career change, from chemical engineering to real estate brokerage. I thought it was easy to make decisions like this… What I thought is being a real estate broker is an easy career as what I’ve noticed to other successful real estate brokers.

Many people became rich because of real estate investment, one best example was Donald Trump one of the Real Estate Emperor in United States of America.

I decided to take a licensure exam for real estate brokers in my country (Philippines) as a requirement to be in real estate service. I’ve passed the EXAM! Yes, I did it! But it’s only the beginning of my battle against FAILURES…..

As the months passed by, I made my first property sale. So, I decided to resign from my day job. At first I regret to resign but I have to focus on my new career. I attended many seminars from successful investors and one of them became my mentor and friend. Not all of my experiences in real estate industry are successful but many times I failed. But failures keep me going to take my decision to a right journey.

One of my mentor told me that before taking things right, you have to make a PLAN, a very good PLAN. Once you don’t make a PLAN, you PLAN to FAIL! I take it as a challenge in my life my daily task with clarity of what I have in my plans in life. I am not saying that TODAY as I write this blog that I am now one of the most successful people in my career. But I noticed some changes and improvements in my life. IT’S ONLY THE BEGINNING OF A GREAT AND HAPPY BATTLE in my life.

All I can share to my readers before making TOUGH DECISIONS are as follows.

  1. You must have a plan. A BETTER PLAN.
  2. Recognize your fear.
  3. You must have CLARITY of what you want. Make sure you have enough information.
  4. Look for a mentor that truly succeeded in his life.
  5. Once you decide, there is no going back. Going back means you are a quitter. Once you quit! You failed!
  6. Trust your gut!
  7. Pray for God’s guidance. I am not saying that I believe in God. But I believed that there is someone up there knows more than what you think. HAVE FAITH!
  8. Do it. Most people fails at this step, don’t be one of them.

After making a decision, take rest at the moment. When you are fully present, you realize that you are always on your path. Once you open yourself up to endless opportunities, your creativity and courage will guide you towards self-fulfillment.
