What Are the 4 Steps to Finding Your Rhythm?

If you’re at a point in your life where you’re struggling to get things right, follow these four steps to help you work through it.

I want you to do me a favor. Think back to a time in your life where everything you did worked perfectly. It was easy, stress-free, and you couldn’t make a mistake.

Have you thought about that time? We’ve all had it.

Now, think about something different. Think about a time where you did all the right things but just couldn’t get anything to work. I know I’ve had those times, and I’m sure you’ve had them too.

I was recently at The Human Gathering, and one of the speakers there shared a great concept and I want to share with you today. His concept was that there are four steps to getting into a rhythm or flow:
  1. Struggle. You might be surprised at this. After all, who wants more struggle in their life? Actually though, it makes perfect sense. When most of us struggle, we respond by resisting it and pushing against it, which causes us to stay in this phase longer than we should. Instead of struggling, lean into the struggle and, as the speaker said, “struggle gracefully.”

  2. Relaxation. Many of us forget this step, but taking a few moments to yourself is a great thing to do.

  3. Flow (or rhythm). This is where the stress is gone and things start clicking and working.

  4. Recovery. Give yourself time to rest and relax.
If you think about this during your workout or exercise routine, it makes perfect sense, right? You’ll have a little bit of a struggle, a little relaxation time, the rhythm or flow (perhaps a “runner’s high” if you’re running), and then the recovery.

Instead of resisting the struggle and looking at it as a bad thing, understand that the good stuff is right around the corner. If you lean into it and get excited about it, it will leave you sooner so you can get to the good stuff.

Think about what you want to accomplish in the next week or two and apply these principles so you can get to the good stuff faster. Struggle isn’t a bad thing—it’s just step No. 1.

The Key to Having Breakthroughs in Your Business

Goal setting and achieving is essential to creating the life you want to live. Here are some goal-setting tips that I use regularly.
Big goals in your business should equally excite and scare you. Often, your subconscious is nervous to try something new once you set those big goals. This prevents you from making breakthroughs. There are a few different things that I do to get into that growth mindset each day.

One of them is writing my goals down and reading them aloud each day. Once you repeat these goals to yourself enough times, you’re going to want to take action. Dreaming is not enough; you actually have to take action towards your goals. The action can be directly related to your goals, like calling past clients, or something that will inspire you or help you focus on your health. Anything that creates positive energy, really.

If your goals don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.

You’re going to hit a slump at some point, but what are you going to do then, give up? Here are a few things you can do to rekindle that fire:

  • Put on some music that inspires you to get out of your own head and into action.
  • Pick up the phone and call someone who is supportive of your goals.
  • Tell every positive person in your life about your goals.
  • Read great books and listen to great material to motivate yourself.

If your goal doesn’t scare you, it’s not big enough. Think about your goal and then take some action toward it. Let’s see what you can create.

Get Your Attitude in Check

What attitude do you bring to the table every day? Adopting a can-do attitude can make a world of difference when reaching your goals.
Today I want to take a break from talking about real estate to talk about something that impacts your daily life: your attitude.

It seems like everyone is talking about how you should be positive and have a good attitude. However, there are all kinds of attitudes. There are good, positive attitudes, and there are negative, bad attitudes. There are also can-do attitudes, which is what I want to focus on.

One of the reasons why I don’t tend to want to quit when things aren’t going well is because I have a can-do attitude. I always believe I will find a way. The harder it gets, the more determined I get to obtain the results that I want.

You need to have a can-do attitude to reach your goals.

You need to be aware of the type of attitude you have and then decide which attitude to adopt into your lifestyle. I recommend choosing a really optimistic, can-do attitude. It will bring you one step closer to your goals, which will make you feel much better.

If you have any questions about this topic or if you have any real estate questions, please feel free to give us a call or send us an email. Also, we’re hiring! So if you know anyone with a positive or can-do attitude, we want to talk to them. We look forward to hearing from you!
