In today's tubulent times in Real Estate and the general economy the stresses of life just seem to be magnified.
You may have financial stress from your business, your employment, from your budget having more bills to go toward the end of the month without the income matching up quite right with it.
Then of course life never pauses in all the other areas of your life with health, relationships with family like spouses and children, and maintenance on the home and car, etc.
During more trying times we learn to handle change. Change is constant and steady throughout our life. As someone told me: Get used to it! But what change really is are a series of little "tests" for us. It
Uncovers Who You Are.
It allows you to dig deeper into your character. Almost like a day at the beach and you get that shovel out and start whacking into the sand to understand what is really under the surface. Buried treasure? Or a rusty tin can? What are you really made of? You are about to find out.
With change, especially difficult change, character is revealed. The part that others are not sure about us. Shoot, we are probably not sure about it ourselves. But we do have a choice with what is under the covers.
Good attitudes. Learning to Adapt. Practicing the art of effective communication in asking for help. Harnessing all our resources. Knowing that this too shall pass. You might surprise yourself with what you uncover about yourself.
Think of change as a challenge. Once again a test. How about an image of you and rock climbing? Scaling that vertical wall. Looks pretty daunting and hopeless at first glance. But there are footholds you can place your feet when you look closer. You string yourself with safety lines. You climb UP one step at a time. You develop a plan to reach the summit despite it feeling overwhelming at first. When you meet the challenge, it's a pretty good feeling. I'd venture to say you pretty much amaze yourself. Trust that what you will discover INSIDE yourself is pretty darn special. Afterall, so are YOU.
