Well, I must admit this is a real dream come true for me. I always say when you evidence ¨passion¨ for what you do, Life is mutual with your proceed.
This is the simulation for what comes in the next months. A beachline Luxury mansion for a ¨top class super-VIP¨ client that decided to set his life in Marbella-Spain, and will bring his exclusive private luxury car collection with him. In this occasion, the picture shows the proposal for a glass-walled parking garage area, where the roof becomes a terrace floor at the swimming pool & garden areas, within amazing-privileged sea views. ..Can you imagine it???!!,.. in this sense, the garage gets into a kind of ¨trophy cabinet¨ where guests will be able to get delighted at the private parties in the place. Obviously the future owner of this beauty got excited for the plan, and this will be a real fact soon. No matter anything else but ¨execution¨; no lack of whatever else.
THE BEGINNINGS FOR EVERYTHING.
As you can sense, a project of these huge dimensions requires the ¨gift of the opportunity¨. You have to be at the precise place in the right moment, otherwise this would have simply been a crazy story.
When I was contacted for ¨a coffee¨, I would have never imagined what there was in behind. My friend said ¨George I need you, leave everything¨. ..When she explained everything in detail, I began to follow her instructions. These are the ¨keys¨ that I consider strategic for the successful path since the origins of the case:
1. TRUST & HUMILITY.
When a project like this enters your Life, forget concepts as ¨commission¨ or ¨profit¨. You just have to BELIEVE! in yourself, and bet for an extraordinary opportunity that your career faces. In a current World invaded by ¨egos¨, the 70% of the projects fail down due to ¨authoritarianism¨. So, it is important to know how to listen to the others, being capable of providing solutions at the same time. This is how work teams grow, and this means you will be wrong if the first question is ¨how much my money will be¨. You just evidence you are the right person for this since the beginning, …and the rest will come.
2. PERMANENT DISPOSITION.
Everything matters, even though you think something is trivial. You can´t imagine how many ¨potential good options¨ we have been prospecting during the last three months, in order to achieve the ideal land plot or property existing in the market, for a hypothetical final solution, being capable of satisfying the demanding needs of the client at the same time. This means, if a lawyer, or architect, or whoever involved in the case, calls you whenever saying ¨we have to meet this person in 15 minutes¨, you are always obliged to say ¨YES¨ with no excuses. People have their own Life, their own duties, their own needs to solve, and if they just minimum sense you are ¨occupied¨ in the first moment, then they will consider the idea of prioritizing in their things too. …And obviously, in that instant moment the solution flies away, what means you will not have the same potential chance in the path again. This is it.
In my opinion, I think this could be the most strategic key for the success of whatever in Life.
3. THINK EXCLUSIVE.
The client knew exactly what he wanted, but we had to be ready to offer what might make him ¨get surprised¨. In this way, fortunately we were agile at the moment of searching what he exactly needed, contributing with the proposals that the team work generated just thinking about ¨what our ideal house¨ was in mind. Being realistic, acting responsibly, and offering gratefully. Behaving always like this, the final feeling of the client got into a new perception about ¨Wow!, these guys are really dying for me¨. ..In that moment, we finished being ¨just providers¨, and we became ¨TRULY SOLVERS¨.
