Spreading Joy in Abundance
By Amy Lessinger
Stephen Covey, famous for penning The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, coined the idea of an abundance mentality – a belief that success isn’t a zero-sum game…there’s enough to go around so that everyone wins. This mindset is one of the first things I look for when recruiting agents to join our team at RE/MAX Realty Affiliates.
And it shows. Particularly this time of year.
It’s hard to find words that adequately describe the feeling of camaraderie and joy that comes from being surrounded by a team of people who’re passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. People whose generosity and can-do spirit lift up those they seek to serve – and everybody else around them.
This year, our company chose to make the holidays brighter for a special group of kindergarteners at the Lemelson STEM Academy in Reno. We also drew the names of a dozen low-income veterans from the Gift-A-Vet tree at the VA Hospital in Reno and surprised them with gifts like pajamas, coats, boots and other things they need but can’t afford. You can learn more about donating to this program by contacting Sandi TenBoer at 775-737-8642 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The joy these connections bring to everyone in our office might be greater than the smiles on the kids’ and veterans’ faces when we deliver their gifts. That’s the magic this season brings to us all – paying it forward is a gift we give to ourselves as well as others. And it’s a blast when it’s shared as a team!
A heartfelt thanks goes out to the incredible people at RRA who make each day a blessing, and to everyone who has played a part in making our business so very special again this year. May your holiday season and New Year be abundantly blessed.
