Standing Tall!!

Working to create my own “Code of the West” principles helped me to refocus on what is truly important in all aspects of my life.  What a marvelous opportunity for anyone to define or redefine who they are. Thank you for an incredible experience!!!

Loved the workshop. Arrived kind of grumpy.... having to leave Pinedale early to make it. Workshop was worth it.

My principle has always been: Walk the Talk

I enjoyed the class immensely it really made me do some sole searching and I did come up with my own code.  One of my principles is :  “Be nice, talk nice to everyone and do not judge”.

Kent Noble - Real Estate Continuing Education - Cowboy Ethics / Standing Tall

I can honestly say that this workshop was the most interesting and applicable Real Estate CE class I have ever attended.  The 3 hours flew by without seeing anyone sleeping, gawking at the ceiling or tapping away at their phone.   Each activity was extremely meaningful and I did feel like each of us were developing a code which gave us accountability and motivation to improve our lives and make our new standard 1% better than it is today. “ Live each moment like your kids are watching”, was my favorite principle from Kent’s code.  My kids are the heartbeat in my world and I think that if I continue to use that as my meter, decisions will remain way above the standard.  I also appreciate “All it takes is all you’ve got”.  For me it shows the lack of judgment or criticism to others; the code is about what you do to make your life and those around you lives  better, it is not about what others are doing or not doing, it boils down to your own  accountability and setting the bar above the ethical standard.
My principles did not sound as “cool” and needed some refining…
Share a smile, it may be the only sunshine someone sees today.
God’s unquestionable power is the reason I am blessed.
Thank you again for coming to Jackson and sharing the Code.

This was an extremely valuable workshop for me. I would recommend it for everyone. Kent was an excellent presenter. I plan to fine tune my personal code and put it into action. Here is a principle on self improvement I developed at the workshop.

Make part of every day a training day. Learn something every day.

I just wanted to say that I enjoyed the presentation very much. As a former Wyoming and Montana resident (6 years and 3 years, respectively) I felt an immediate connection with the presentation. Even though I am a city slicker from MO, I herded cattle, mended fences, and fed and watered a few horses. I fulfilled most of my childhood cowboy dreams, even if I only go a small taste. Thank you for recognizing how hard that work and life is.

The people I met while living in the western states who were natives of those states were the friendliest people I’ve met, anywhere. They welcomed me to their communities and into their lives. They willingly taught this city slicker skills you can’t learn in a book. And they tried very hard not to laugh while I learned those things. And I learned more humility than I cared to.

As far as a take away from your presentation, there were a couple of things in particular that resonated. I traveled non-stop while living out west, so I was not able to get involved in the community in a formal way. I didn’t join any groups. However, once I moved back to the upper Midwest, I joined all sorts of groups. I was involved in everything in a big way, which my wife still fails to remotely understand. I think it relates to the “Do What Has To Be Done” principle. If something needs to be done, or should be done in my opinion, I have an obligation as a citizen to help get it done. And so I try to help.

The other principle that resonates is “Talk Less and Say More”. I am quiet by nature. Most of the time I do not have an inclination to say anything. It seems that there are always plenty of people who are willing to hold up my end of the conversation and theirs. The best compliment I ever received was when someone said that I don’t ever say much, but people should listen when I do. Enough said.

Thank you again.
