TAKING STOCK AND ELIMINATING WHAT ISN’T WORKING IN YOUR LIFE.
Reevaluate your areas of life
Where do you want to be in the future in these areas?
Reset can bring out the excitement that has been lost in the mundane routine. A fresh start and a new beginning can set things in motion for a new normal. What you did before may not make sense now. Draw a line in the sand where you are now and where you are going and where do you want to finish.
This year we had the opportunity to reset our thinking in our family and business. It is a daily task to view life from the new normal. We found out our granddaughter has a rare disease Lesch Nyhan syndrome. Life is different for her and our family. We reset our family expectations.
Our real estate business has taken on a new look with our team working mostly remotely rather than from the office. It has allowed us to review what is the best use of our time. We have done many Zoom appts as well as face to face. Everyone has a different normal so it has helped us see everyone’s unique
position in our constantly changing world.
We have been adapting to change using these 5 strategies:
1. CHANGING YOUR MINDSET
2. FINDING MEANING IN YOUR LIFE
3. LET GO OF YOUR REGRETS
4. WRITE A LIST OF SCARY THINGS TO DO & GO DO THEM
5. REFOCUS & RESET
Why Do You Have to Adapt to Change?
Change can come into our lives as a result of a crisis, as a result of choice or just by chance. In either situation, we are all faced with having to make a choice – do we make the change or not? We have control over how we react to change and when we are resistant to change, then life tends to feel overwhelming and out of control. Our resilience in life can only grow stronger when we embrace change and manage these challenges in a positive way, rather than hide away and ignore the opportunities that change can bring to our lives. Managing change in life is key to living a life where you are not only surviving but thriving as well.
The following strategies will help you adapt to our ever-changing world.
1. Change Your Mindset
Many of us like to live our lives in our comfort zone. Our subconscious likes this because it is the “known”. Embracing change is stepping into the unknown and our subconscious will does not like the “unknown.” so it will resist. Our fear and self-limiting beliefs will kick into action when we are faced with the disruptive consequences of change. There is no escaping the fact that change is a disruptor and it feels uncomfortable and scary. However, it is our power of choice that enables us to activate positive change in our lives. We cannot control the events of change in our life, but we can control how we react to the impact that these events have on our lives. The more you focus your mindset on positively adapting to change, the more resilient you will be to dealing with impact that change will bring to your life.
2. Find Meaning in Your Life
Knowing what is important in your life gives you purpose and sets the direction of how you want to live your life. With a sense of purpose and meaning in life, you have clarity and focus and both these elements are essential to you being able to successfully adapt and manage the impact of change in your life. Having no purpose or meaning means that you tend to drift in life within the confines of your comfort zone. Purpose and meaning in life gives you the courage to step out of your comfort zone – which is where you will find change and the opportunities it can offer to you.
3. Let Go of Your Regrets
Regrets have a huge impact on how you respond to change and they hold you back in life. Letting go of your regrets is key to you being able to move forward in life. It is the events of change that present opportunities in life, so if are looking back at your past you may miss the opportunities of the present and the future. You cannot change what you did or did not do in the past so let it go. The only control you have now is to choose to live in your present and future life. A great exercise to deal with regrets in life is to blow up a heap of balloons and on each balloon write a regret. Then, let the balloon go. As the balloon drifts off, out loud say goodbye to that regret. Very simple but an effective way of dealing with the pile of regrets that you have collected in your lives.
4. Write a List of Scary Things to Do – Then Go Do Them
Change is scary and it is all about stepping out of your comfort zone into the unknown. Our subconscious needs to get familiar with us stepping out of a comfort zone and doing scary things. In fact we want to train our subconscious into believing that stepping out of our comfort zone and doing scary things is a normal thing for us to do. Make a list of scary things that you would like to do but have been too afraid to. Put a plan in place and then go do them. Go have fun, challenge yourself and get yourself use to the feeling of being scared and stepping into the unknown.
5. Reset, Readjust, Restart, and Refocus – as many times as you need to.
Read the last line. As many times as you need to. Don’t lose sight of that, don’t worry about how many chances others think you should have, remain in your own lane, and do what gives you the best chance to be successful. Life comes with so many ups and downs that there will be times when we have to adjust to things, start fresh, start again. Take control of yourself. Your life. Your choices. If something isn’t working. Start again. As many times as it takes. Whatever it takes.
We have found these strategies very helpful, especially this past year. We had to Refocus and Reset how we were serving our clients and Real Estate Team. With so much uncertainty, especially in the Real Estate Market, we continue our mission to serve our community. While we had to adapt the way we did things this past year and learned how to work virtually, our Team is better for those changes. We have also adapted many of our incredible exclusive free programs to those who are looking to Buy or Sell a home in an ever-changing Real Estate Market. If you know someone planning to make a move, refer them to our Team and you can rest assured that not only will they get the award winning service we are known for, plus your Referrals will also Help the Kidz through our GO SERVE BIG MISSION!

We have been on a mission to raise $10,000 this year for CityKidz and we are thrilled to announce that we have surpassed our goal. We have donated $11,180 so far this year and we are not done yet!
Let us tell you about our mission; For every home we sell this year, we are donating a portion of our income to CityKidz. Our goal was to raise at least $10,000 to help them in their quest to Break The Cycle of Poverty in the city of Hamilton.
Why CityKidz? Coleen grew up in the Hamilton North-End and knows how many in our community struggle with poverty. CityKidz is an incredible organization that provides amazing programs to over 2000 children and families every week, which gives them a chance to thrive in less desirable circumstances so they can achieve their dreams.
CityKidz depends on volunteers and donations to help them invest in a different outcome for children living in poverty.
This is where we need your help!
