Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 1,190

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! I hope this email finds you well and ready for the blessings that lie ahead in this new week. Today, I’d like to talk about adversity – specifically asking how do you overcome it? I have been selling real estate for 36 years and I have seen every type of market – from the burst, the bubble and bust, the short sale market – and at the time, those adversities felt like they were a disaster; they felt impossible to navigate. However, looking back we always found a way to overcome it and dare I say, we came out the other side better for having experienced the challenges. What adversities do you face in your life right now? Can you see the opportunities? I’d love to hear from you. Let’s support each other, and let’s make it a great week!


Imagine that you are juggling five balls.

Each of them represents important parts of our life – family, health, spirit, friends and job.

Four balls are made of glass and only one is made of rubber.

We need to recognize that job is a rubber ball. While family, friends, health and spirit are very fragile, as if you drop one of them, they will be irreversibly damaged or even shattered.

This understanding will help to keep the balance in your life.



“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” - Walt Disney

“The eagle has no fear of adversity. We need to be like the eagle and have a fearless spirit of a conqueror!” - Joyce Meyer

“Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.” - Aristotle
