Change can be a "Vitamin" to Your Practice...& Your Life !

. If you are going to be totally and completely honest with yourself...there are times in your business and in your life...when things get to be ..."same old\same old" and the routine is just that...you get up and dStuck in a ruto what you always do at the times you always do them...and you can start to feel like you are in what we call "rutt status."  The easiest thing to do...is stay there...it requires no thought....no effort...and as a result..you get "no change."  The rut remains whether it is personal or professional....and often overlaps in both areas. 

   Some people find comfort in "living the expected"...the assurance that they know because it's Wednesday...they will do this...get that..it's this time of day...they do this. People who are self employed and truly revel in the entrepreneurial spirit,...get restless with the "same old/same old." Sometimes, you become a bit "unconscious" and you are satisfied with same old same oldthe status quo....you make enough money...you have enough time to do what you want/need to do...life is good.(She says with the wisdom of recent experience.) The thought that it can be "BETTER" doesn't enter your mind. Like a pair of comfortable old slippers...that old pair of jeans or sweatshirt...it just "works" for what you need it to do/be.

   Then one day...afternoon...night...the thought enters your mind that life could be different...and YOU have the power to change it !  It can start with little things that change in what may have become routine in your life. Think about what you do every day...or week or month ...the same way. OR it may be physical/cosmetic things from the color of the lipstick you wear...to the walls in the living room...the arrangement of the furniture...the organization of the office...the times you take a walk..take a break...what you eat..how you exercise.  Change can take lots of Changeforms..and the degree to which you make the change will be directly proportional to the impact it has on your life. 

    For those of you who read our posts regularly...you know what our BIG change was recently.  Know  this...you have never done something too long one way to make a change...you aren't too old...nothing is such an ingrained habit you can't look at things differently...do them differently...and be surprised at the outcome.  

   We can only tell you that one Big Change begets another...and the flow of positive change is such an energizing and wonderfully exciting feeling..it is what we wish for all who read this however you choose to make positive changes in your life.  

   vitamin Grab that bottle of  "Life Vitamins"...it's yours for the taking...go ahead change your diet...move the couch...paint the bedroom...look at business...find a niche....and begin a new and improved "happily ever after" that you design to make your own life the very best it can be !

    This has been a positive energy infusing post brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with ExP Realty energetically honored to serve southeastern Wisconsin for all things real estate.

Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson, what an awesome post and a life lesson. I personally need that change or I'll get bored. Never afraid to take chances, one life to live!

I deal well with change, Sally... but I also admit to liking a certain routine to my life.

Good morning Sally and David - in your case you looked at the possibility and decided to change.  There are many who are forced into a change through job loss etc but then sometimes later they realize it was the best thing that happened.

Sally and David if we love what we do, and find meaningful purpose in it, the ruts are few and far in between.  When the ruts start to become the norm rather than the exception, then a serious evaluation of what we are doing is a must.

The most important home I sell is YOURS!

I recently talked with an old friend who retired after 40 years working for the same company.  In the same location. Living in the same house. And he wanted nothing to do with change.  To each his own, I guess.

Excellent post with great wisdom to change for the better.  "if it ain't broke don't fix it" is a fallback for the frog who is getting in hotter water and doesn't know it until too late.  Constant assessment of the economic and spiritual conditions of our lives is important.

So many changes in my life the past year. Terrifying to me for the most part. Each one represents a new beginning. I'm quite happy to have reached the point where I can enjoy and appreciate the results!

Hi Sally and David- very inspirational!!!  It is an inspiration to many who may feel as if they are too old or too far along in where they are to make a move.

At home I am ready for a change. I want to thin out things, change colors and live lighter. We are never too old to just have to settle. We can change.

when I live lighter I live light and travel more and have a little bit more adventure going on too. I think we could all use a little reboot: :) Debbie Reynolds
