Support of A Cure For Cancer
In support of a cure for cancer, today’s blog comes to you from our exclusive buyer’s agent, Josh Almolsch:
Lately, I’ve begun to consider that inconvenience is a necessity. I am not saying that helping people is inconvenient. No way. I think the purpose of life is to support and serve each other. An excellent way to detect whether doing something is worthwhile is to be in touch with your “Inconvenience Meter.” Some of us tend to build walls around ourselves, including putting on blinders and grinding onto finish the next goal in front of us as a way to keep developing our lives; thus, reaching our goals. I personally do anyway.
I think that motivation and determination tend to be disturbed when things come up that send us in a different direction from our usual routine. Take me, for example. I’m not one of those Realtors who sits around and waits for the phone to ring. Nope. For starters, I don’t have to wait, haha, it rings all of the time! That’s what happens when you are on a Sacramento top producer real estate team. Plus, don’t forget about all of the other wonderful existing clients I help. I pound the pavement looking for homes and wrestle with listing agents on behalf of my clients so that they can get the house of their dreams. I love what I do.
When I was asked to take on this task of running for “Man of The Year” by raising $50,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in an effort to find a cure for cancer, I knew this was to be a huge undertaking. It would inconvenience not only my free time but my business. But, then I thought about it again, knowing were are 174,250 people in 2018 diagnosed and inconvenienced with new cases of Leukemia, Lymphoma or Myeloma accounting for about 10 percent of the estimated 1,735,350 new cancer cases diagnosed in the US in 2018.
Now, I am not sure if the following quote from the movie National Treasure is actually in the United States Constitution; but, for days after LLS asked me to run for “Man of The Year,” I heard “if there’s something wrong, those who have the ability to take action, have the responsibility to take action.” I had to do this BECAUSE it was inconvenient. This is often how we know we should do something. At least for those of us who push on, day to day knocking out tasks, meetings and deals.
The ten weeks between March 28th and June 8th, 2019, is when inconvenience is a necessity for me. Now, this is the best inconvenience I have ever been blessed to be a part. I mean, check out this video link about what they are doing to fight new cases of cancer. While we have raised a decent amount so far, we are nowhere near our goal of $50,000. This is where we need your help!
