I recently moved from one real estate brokerage to another. I have a lot of friends at the brokerage where I left, and only one at the new place. Change isn’t something I tackle with ease, and when I was discussing making the move with my real estate coach, he asked me to tell him the six words I associated with making this move. I came up with focused, freedom, brave, directed, powerful and strong.
Then, knowing that I process best through writing, he asked me to do a blog post, once each week, for six weeks, on a different word from my list. So, fourth in the series – directed.
I don’t want it to sound like I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off at the old brokerage – that’s not what I was doing! But since I decided to go to the new agency, I feel like I’ve been on a mission, I am much more directed now in my plans. I know which direction I am going, I know how to get there, I have a mental map of the route.
I was shopping the other day and I was walking out of the store when the sign pictured above caught my eye. I literally stopped still in my tracks, turned, and walked over to the table on which it rested. I picked it up and held it in my hands. I almost welled up with tears.
I know where I am going, and it isn’t backward. This is a wonderful feeling, to be headed in a positive direction and to be focused on the goal, free to pursue it, and brave enough to tackle obstacles that may impede my progress.
