Why does everyone hate the New York Yankees? Because for so many years they were #1 (and because they’re annoying!). There is something in the character of Americans that makes us root for the underdog. If you’re the winner, consistently, you’re allowed your moment in the sun, and then it’s back to work.
Windermere Real Estate/Tri-Cities, was recently voted as the People Choice #1 Real Estate Agency in town.
It feels amazing to say I work there.
Or, rather, it felt amazing for about an hour, and then I realized – “Eeek! If we win this again and again, we’re the Yankees! We’ve only won this once, and people might be rooting for our demise RIGHT NOW!”
But you know what? Even if people hate the Yankees, they still win games. Even if we’re #2 or #3 next year, or fail to make the cut at all, guess what? I’m still going to be doing business the way I always have, as will my colleagues.
I’m proud to work at the real estate agency voted into the top spot by the people of the Tri-Cities. I hope we win again and again, but even if we don’t, we’ll always have been the People’s Choice once, and that will always feel great.
