Passion PArty # 481- A Sense of Adventure
It has been almost four years since I began pulling myself up from the depths of the “mortgage meltdown”.
And it has been 5 years since I took a major vacation.
So next week I leave for a 12 day trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos.
We are doing a hiking “adventure travel” trip. Adventure travel is the fastest growing sector of the travel business.
Whenever we get an email update from our tour company they always close with “Make sure you bring your sense of adventure!”
So as I look at the mortgage world today,
I realize that I am in the adventure travel business:
You have to be flexible and open to change.
There’s always something new around every corner.
The itinerary might say we are going to fly, but be ready to get on a boat instead.
You plan for the best, but prepare for the worst.
Before the trip is done, you are bound to experience something you never thought would happen.
There may be turbulence, but as long as you stay in your seat, you will get to the destination. Just don’t jump up and start trying to fly the plane yourself!
And bring your sense of adventure!
