A Lion’s Courage: How We Learn to Seize the Day

May 31, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

I recently went to an event in San Diego called “Peak Experience.” It’s an annual event where approximately 500 real estate agents get together for a personal growth experience. I have been to this event maybe a dozen times and each year the material is different. Some years, I may have had a breakthrough while right there in the moment. Other times, it might be a few weeks or months before something strikes me from the event as the “aha” takeaway. The theme of this year’s event was wrapped around […]

What You Need to Do to Get Your House Ready to Go on the Market

May 3, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

“I’m getting ready to put my house on the market. What do I need to do to get it to sell?” It is a question I’m asked a lot by clients and prospective clients. So many people watch HGTV these days that they already have some idea of what to do. But, as you probably learned as a kid, don’t take television as Gospel.

Humble Pie: How a Taste of Humility Can Call Us to Action

April 3, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

You’ve heard the expression, “I ate a piece of humble pie”? Basically, when you’ve been humbled, that’s what you were served. It never tastes good, but its benefits are priceless.

Because humility is borne from humiliation, it never feels or tastes good when we are served it, but the challenge is to ingest it and take it as a gift. But can we be grateful for the taste of humble pie when we receive it? […]

March 1, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

I recently had a conversation with a group of business people and the topic of discussion was why some people excel to a greater degree than others. Is it talent or know-how or training or a gift? Those are all helpful assets to have when trying to excel, but the reason why some people succeed to a greater degree than others comes from something more basic than that.

How Bad Are Kidney Stones? Not as Bad as A Tiny Bit of Effort is Good

February 14, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

I recently went through the excruciating pain of kidney stones. How bad are kidney stones? So bad. You’ve probably heard stories about how severe the pain is. Many women attest that nothing hurts more than giving birth to a child (or should I say the labor pains that come with the experience of giving birth to a child), but doctors and other professionals I’ve spoken to over the years have said that the pain of kidney stones is eerily close to the pain a woman feels in labor. I don’t pretend […]

January 31, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

Anxiety, a physical reaction to an emotional trigger, eats away at millions of people everyday. Anxiety affects how we act, how we think, how we sleep. It can affect every and all parts of our lives if we do not learn to control it. So how to reduce anxiety is an important practice to learn. Just about everyone I have ever met has experienced some level of anxiety at one time or another. Most commonly, it’s a relatively low level of anxiety caused by a feeling of tension or fear […]
