Stir the pot

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Pareto Realty TN #251071

Shake things up!

Make a ruckus!

Break the mold!

Upset the apple cart!

Dare to . . . !

Question everything!

Quit being so damned responsible and predictable!

How scary would this be?

What’s the worst that could happen?

What’s the BEST that could happen?

What would other people think?

What matters most?

Doing what you are doing where and with whom, are you feeling fulfilled?

If not . . . what can you imagine might be different – better?

I hereby challenge you to sequester yourself from the fray, for as long as your circumstances permit, to consider the possible ramifications of stirring your pot.

You’ve really got nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain.

You might discover that your current way is spot on. That’s wonderful validation that can, in and of itself, provide a lift to your drive and momentum to continue forward.

or . . . You might discover that your gypsy soul is yearning for a change of scenery.

Listen to your heart and take appropriate action.

(pssst – I did this “exercise” all day yesterday, and the results are frighteningly exciting. I found a level of clarity of purpose at a level I’ve never before experienced. Oh! Don’t be alarmed! I’m not abandoning all of my commitments and joining a nudist colony. What I AM doing is cranking up the volume by pulling the trigger on a couple of HUGE ideas that have been swimming around in the recesses of my consciousness for a few years . . . NOW is the right time for me for this.)

When’s the last time you considered the possibility of re-inventing yourself as a catalyst for propelling you forward faster on this path that is yours?

Hello Barry - sometimes this kind of "shake up" works.

This seems to be all I have been doing for a while and so far the clarity I was hoping for has not been apparent. But, I think the waters are beginning to clear.

Good morning Barry. I liked the title and really agree with your substance as well.

Those are fascinating thoughts, Barry!  One thing for certain, things need to change when the status quo isn't rewarding!

This reminds me of a TV show I occasionally watch called House Hunters Intl.  Quite often, older retired folks decide to pack up and live someplace else far far away...shake up their lives...and end up really likeing it!
