It's been about 5 years since I got into 'personal development'...and holy shit has it been a ride!
So many things have happened since my first event with Tony Robbins.
When you make the decision to better yourself and your mindset, it's a life long commitment and it should be, it's a forever in process, there's no time when you're going to feel ‘done’.
It’s been a tough few months this year, if you haven’t followed me around the socials, this might be new for you, but in short, it’s felt like a fucking dumpster fire to be honest.
I have spent years learning ways to not feel this fucked up and yet, there I was, totally fucked up.
I recently shared with a close friend that I was even having suicidal thoughts, if you know me, you know this is so far from the realm of my thought process that this thought was extra scary to me.
After all, if I don’t have the tools, then who the fuck does?
And that was what was real for me in those scary and dark moments.
“If I can’t pull myself out of this shit with all my training, how can anyone who doesn’t have these tools do it?”.
It scared me to my core.
I started to think about why I was feeling this way, why was I falling into this pit that I felt had no ending in sight?
I wanted to know why I was so depressed even though I was helping others and that has always filled me up…you can read more about the dangers of only focusing on others vs helping yourself first here, but why was I feeling like I no longer even knew who I was or why I was here?
As time went on, I started to unravel it more and more and when I realized that I had to really take care of my own shit first that’s when the light bulb went off for me. That’s when real estate.
So what does all my years in personal development have to do with real estate?
Lots actually and the more I think about it, the more excited I get.
I think that I had forgotten that mindset work could apply to more than just me being a coach for other women.
I think I got it in my head that if I wasn’t coaching like I used to, that I wasn’t going to use all the stuff I’d been learning all these years. Sort of stupid when you think about it right?
Over the last several weeks, I have been consuming more real estate business content than ever before. I am not the type of entrepreneur that waits, I go as far as I can take something before I need to ask for help. This is no different.
I haven’t even read one module of my course yet and I am already planning my content calendar for the year…why?
“Because it’s not a lack of resources, it’s a lack of resourcefulness”-Tony Robbins, that will stop you dead in your tracks.
It’s a negative mindset that could tell me, “what are you even doing, you don’t even have your license yet?”.
I could easily let my ego run wild in telling me all the ways I am not ready to create content or to reach out to other agents or people in the industry, but this is where the last 5 years are paying off.
This is where the last 5 years of money, time, gut wrenching awareness, and even suicidal thoughts comes to a head.
This is where it all comes full circle.
This is where I get to acknowledge that I do have the tools and that I get to now use them for another line of business…and that makes me feel so hopeful.
It’s where I am able to put into practice all of the leadership and mindset work to build a team along side me…another arm of the Love Soldier Army, through real estate and that shit is so exciting!
It’s easy to let yourself feel like shit…women are especially good at doing that.
I really don’t want to anymore and hope you don’t either.
I want to take this next step with so much grace and excitement that it’s impossible to feel anything less that amazing!
I am learning that new chapters don’t mean anything. It doesn’t mean you’re a failure, it just means it’s a new chapter. Always remember that nothing means anything except the meaning YOU give it!
When you feel like, “holy shit I didn’t XYZ”, I invite you to question your thoughts on why you’re taking that as a fuck up…remember, ALWAYS BE CURIOUS!
I will be creating a lot more content around mindset AND real estate from both the agents view and homeowners view and since mindset is at the core of sales, it makes sense that I talk about it-openly;).
So here is my ask to you, if you are local to the GTA and you want to connect, let me know. Part of creating a brand is real life connections (I love this part)…so in the coming months, I am going to be all over the place chatting it up, if you want to chat it up, let me know! Here’s my calendly link!
Can’t wait to serve you in this way and to keep levelling up the value.
