Yes, I want everyone to be happy in this life. Business is no different.
Yes I am not jealous when other agents do very well. It makes me want to succeed even more.

Absolutely ecstatic and wishing them continued success always. Hey, we have one shot or time to live. Live all you can and don't forget those around you who could use a free lunch or an encouraging word...yes?
John, it is okay with me if some of my competitors are happy and successful.
My friends - absolutely. Then I get my buns in gear to do just as well and hope they are happy for me too.
Yes, absolutely. They are showing me that I can do that too...A
Yes, it elevates the profession.
Of course, when one fails we all fail, and when one succeeds the profession does also.
Of course. A rising tide lifts all boats equally.
Yes - as long as he/she doesn't do so by stepping on my toes. If they do, then I register in the memory bank and proceed with some caution in my dealings with him/her in the future. Otherwise, there is plenty to go around.
Good Wednesday morning John. Why not? The key to your own success is to applaud others success.
John - It depends on if that person is a good person or not. If that person lied, cheated, and stole to obtain success, then no I am not happy for them. If that person had morals, was kind and considerate, and honest, then I would say they deserve everything they have.
Yes - their success does not detract from mine
Sure. If great stuff can happen to them, it can happen to me, too!
I just had this conversation with an agent in my office and yes, we were talking about how we love to take joy in others success.
I am sincerely happy to see anyone content and happy. It doesn't have to be someone in my business or that I know. Happiness breeds happiness with me.
I don't really care. This business provides us the opportunity to succeed at our own goals. The only time I really let it even enter my thought process is when the other agent is haughty, proud and hard to deal with. One top producer suggested to me an illegal way to "make the deal work". I lost all respect for that person in that transaction. They can produce all they want. I know how they conduct business.
Hmmm, I would need to ask, "Are they buying?"
Then I'm sincerely HAPPY!
It does not really effect me one way or the other, if they are doing great that is great. I prefer to focus on my own goals and success as opposed to seeing what others are doing.
