Certification? Certainly! What do you believe?

Beliefs are very personal and specific. Some of us believe that anything is possible and others believe that nothing is possible. I believe that anything is possible and you may be asking why you care about my beliefs. I would answer that I believe that everyone reading this article has the ability to obtain one or more professional certification, expand their knowledge, and grow their professional careers to new heights even in this market. One of the main reasons many people procrastinate or delay obtaining their certifications is time. “I don’t have the time, I am too busy, I am afraid I will not pass and have to retake the test” are common statements we hear. But if you really think about those answers, I think it boils down to belief. Do you believe in yourself? Do you believe it is a valuable way to spend your time? Do you believe you are not alone and many will assist you with information and education to be successful? The answer again in my eyes should be, “yes!” Yes, you should believe that this is important and can make a difference in your career, especially in this market and environment. Yes, you can find the time to promote yourself. And Yes, the National Association of Mortgage Brokers stands ready to help you with the tools to excel. So, why not start today and answer “yes” to certification. It is a matter of believing. Pava J. Leyrer, CMC, CRMS is president and owner of Heritage National Mortgage Corporation in Grandville, Mich., and Certifications Committee chair for the National Association of Mortgage Brokers.
